Jyo Achyutananda is an upcoming feel good film starring Nara Rohit, Naga Shaurya and Regina Casssandra in lead roles. The film is directed by Srinivas Avasarala who gave a memorable film Oohalu Gusagusalaade. All the songs are penned by Bhaskarabhatla. Music is composed by Sri Kalyanramana and here is an iQlik exclusive audio review of the album:

The peppy album begins with Aakupachani Chandamamala, a breezy number sung brilliantly by Karthik and Ramya Behara. The song has a good balance between melody as well as trendiness. Bhaskarabhatla’s feel good lyrics add the icing on the cake.

The album gathers pace with Suvarna- a funky number from the folk singer Simha and the gripping beats keep the composition going. The interludes are high on energy with good usage of strings.

Oka Laalana is a beautiful number performed by the majestic singer Shankar Mahadevan. The song composed in Hindustani Raag Yaman Kalyan and is the highlight of the album. The use of modern jazz keys with tabla and Bhaskarabhatla’s poetic lyrics is a treat to hear. Shankar Mahadevan literally carries the song on his shoulders with confident rendition.

The breeziness retains with the title track Jyo Achyutananda sung by Sri Kalyanramana and Pop Singer Smitha. The song is steady in rhythm and interesting bass work gives it a jazzy look. A thoroughly enjoyable fare! The usage of electric sitar in the interlude is another good approach.

The most beautiful song of the album arrives in Harini Rao’s unplugged version next in the form of Oka Laalana. The Jazzy keys, syncopated rhythm and literally everything works quite well for this soothing track!  Watch out of the impressive usage of keys and silken tour of interludes with trance beats.

Verdict:

Jyo Achyutananda is a beautiful album with palette of emotions along with musical brilliance!
