Premam is the Telugu remake of Malayalam super hit of the same name which stars Naga Chaitanya, Shruti Hassan, Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameshwaran in lead roles. Music for the film is composed by Gopi Sunder and Rajesh Murughesan. Here is an iQlik exclusive audio review of the album:

The anticipated album begins with Yevare- a track which is universally popular from the original version along with the Telugu version getting released as a single already. Vijay Yesudas does magic to this riveting number which slowly progresses into an eternal love ballad. Double thumbs up for the Telugu version which has brilliant lyrics penned by Shrimani by retaining the Telugu flavor.

Agarottula is quirky number with the sultry vocals of Naresh Iyer and lyrics penned by  Purna Chary. This song is also adapted from the original version yet has brilliant Telugu essence thanks to the lyrics. Naresh Iyer brings youthfulness along with peppiness to this number with his superior singing.

Love is all in the air with another lovely ballad Ninna Leni sung brilliantly by Karthik who is adept in singing songs of this sort. Krishna Madineni does a commendable job with his fantastic lyrics and interestingly, this song radiates the Telugu nativity throughout.

Prema Pusene is a Jazzy number with pendulum like rhythm section and breezy vocals by Karthik once again. The lazy aspect of the song is a biggest highlight and lyrics by Purna Chary are quite poetic and appealing. The laid back rhythm gives  a trance aspect to the composition with musical brilliance.

The album gathers pace with Bang Bang- a high energy number sung by Haricharan who makes no mistakes in singing this trendy number. The conversational aspect of the song appeals much to the younger audience. The tune is quite linear and relies highly on the beautiful interludes laden with flute, saxophone and balanced rhythm section.

The trance mood continues with Enno Sarlu sung by new singer Sachin Warrier without compromising on the melodic aspect. The song’s presentation would remind the listener of A.R.Rahman’s 90s compositions to some extent. The bass work deserves a great mention for its impressive changeovers.

A unique mass appeal occurs for the album in the finale with Evadu Evadu sung by Ranjith. Despite the original derivation, the song has increased pace and supported ably by digital loops and electric guitars.  Shreemani’s lyrics do the job perfectly for this challenging number.

Verdict:
Premam is a brilliant album which lives up to the much hyped anticipation surrounding it. Naga Chaitanya gets another feather in his musical cap with this album!

Rating: 3.5/5
