Srimanthudu is an upcoming action entertainer starring Superstar Mahesh Babu and multi talented Shruti Hassan in lead roles. The film is directed by Kortala Siva, who gave a blockbuster Mirchi earlier. The high voltage musical storm Devi Sri Prasad composed music for this anticipated flick. Here is an iQlik exclusive audio review of the album:

The fun filled album begins with Rama Rama- an emotionally uplifting solo sung well by Sooraj Santhosh. The track is replete with DSP styled trumpets, rhythm section and trendy presentation. Rama Jogayya Sastry’s majestic lyrics are a highlight of this track. The interludes are racy yet make a brilliant positive impact on the listener.

Jata Kalise is refreshing duet with stylish orchestration, cool treble and bass section supported mesmerizingly with impressive lyrics. This track proves once again why DSP is the master of melodious duets right from his first film! The lyrics speak of two different individuals with same thought process- one of its kind songs in modern Telugu Cinema!

DSP must have apparently thought of revisiting his unplugged style of composing like he did for Ninnu Choodagane- Attarintiki Daaredhi, here comes a groovy composition Chaaruseela next! With minimalistic approach of using just acoustic guitar, mild rhythm and yet powerful vocals, this track is like an upgraded version of funkiness! DSP himself wrote the lyrics which make use of fancy words and contemporary analogies.

The title song Srimanthudu arrives next and can be termed as a jewel of the album straightaway! MLR Karthikeyan’s inspirational voice with masterful perfection paves the way for a heroic track equipped with musical perfection throughout.

Jaago sung by the pop sensation Raghu Dixit gives a decent competition to Mahesh Babu’s earlier hit Who R U from his previous film 1: Nenokkadine. Magical electric guitars, remarkable drum section and the format of lyrics follow the same format. However, the presentation is quite novel and gripping.

The album hits the much celebrated finale with great mass vigor leading to a track Dimma Tirige. This obvious mass number does justice to the commercial style of Telugu film music and becomes another feather in DSP’s cap of mass songs!

Srimanthudu is an out and out commercial album with strong lyrical value and optimistic music by DSP. It is because of this, the album’s resemblances to earlier DSP’s albums can be overlooked.  Srimanthudu has the decent thump of a high voltage entertainer.

Rating: 3.25/5
