Kerintha is an upcoming youthful entertainer starring Sumanth Ashwin and Sri Divya in lead roles. The film is directed by Saikiran Adivi and produced by Dil Raju, who has a good taste for fresh subjects. Ramajogayya Sastry penned all the lyrics for this album and music is composed by melodious Mickey J Meyer and here is an iQlik exclusive audio review of it:
The album begins on a trance like note with title track Kerintha sung by the very talented Haricharan. It has a great optimistic feel in terms of music as well as the wonderful lyrics as well. The overall impact is meditative as well as contemporary for the listener. The gradual progression of rhythm section to a crescendo makes it an enjoyable hearing.
Mila Mila is a catchy melody sung by Karthik- who is a regular for Mickey J Meyer albums. The timely guitar strums blend perfectly with the breezy bass work. This track has an instant likability factor for the pleasantness it offers. The interludes are well laced with feel good strings.
It is time for elegant funkiness in the form of Jagadeka Veera sung by the husky voiced Anjana Sowmya. The modern piano touches flawlessly merge with the harmonium as well as the foot tapping rhythm section. There is a strange Jazz flavor intermixed with Indian melody in an effortless manner.
As if to take a detour on a road trip with the help of music, Thanks 2 Zindagi arrives next in great vigor and energy. Despite the de-ja- vu of Mickey J Meyer earlier campus album tracks, this track has a undercurrent energy and infectious pleasantness. The lyrics speak of hope and trendiness with the right balance.
Sumagandhala is another emotional solo sung by Karthik in the midst of amazing string section and lovely piano touches. In short, it continues the addictive sweetness which the album sustained right from the beginning. The syncopated rhythm does the job perfectly and makes it a decent hearing.
The album ends on a philosophical note with Ye Kadha in the velvety vocals of Jonita Gandhi. The relaxing trance style is gelled well with new age music leading to a soothing melody. The interludes are breathtakingly laced with mellowed bells and neat treble work.
Kerintha is an extremely feel good album from Mickey J Meyer once again. It is indeed commendable to present songs which speak of inner meaning along with modernity. However, there is no stunning changeover to it which might not go well with all listeners.
