Superstar Kidnap is an upcoming action thriller starring Vennela Kishore, Nandu and Shraddha Das in the lead roles. Music for the film is composed by Rowdy fame Sai Karthik. Here is an exclusive audio review of the album:

The album begins with an energetic contemporary title track Superstar Kidnap with good rhythm section, and captivating string section. The electric guitar is riveting with energy and gives a great kickstart to the listener.  The carnatic styled guitar touch in the second interlude provides a classic native touch as well. This track is like a cakewalk for a singer like Ranjith.

Oh Na Manasa maintains the vigor put up by the earlier track with good piano touches and percussion sections. Naresh Iyer performs par excellence and the upcoming lyricist Kittu Vissapragada does a great job with good usage of poetic words. Usage of emotional electric guitar along with lilting piano is done well in the interludes.

A new folksy flavor blended with contemporary music arrives in the form of Aase Paddadu sung by the Tamil singing sensation Gaana Baala. The song has great funkiness associated with neat techno loops and fun elements.

The album comes to a finale with Ola Ola having House Mix and Trance styled orchestration. The 90s disco styled rhythm is topped well with good electronic sounds as well. The fusion of contrasting genres has been done quite well without compromising on the pace department.


We would say Superstar Kidnap is an adventurous album with great sound production values and good mix of various genres. The album is definitely a good push for a talented composer like Sai Karthik. However, the album could have sounded more competent and commercial with a good balance of massy tracks and feel good duets.
