It is needless to say that Lord Krishna and Telugu Cinema are greatly related in grace and poise! Right from Sr.NTR till Powerstar Pawan Kalyan, most of the Telugu film stars showed interest to act in this intriguing character and excelled in their own way. We also know that Lord Krishna is extremely fond of music and a great flute player. Naturally, this paves a possibility for many melodious songs for his character in Telugu Films! On the eve of Krishnashtami, iQlikmovies brings you the top 10 songs of Lord Krishna which entertained and educated us forever!
Jaya Krishna Mukunda Murari- Panduranga Mahatyam-: This song is like a brilliant signature for every Lord Krishna devotional number which came later in Telugu films. Ghantasala’s brilliant rendition in the prelude, melodious orchestration and lovely video shot with none other than child artist Vijayanirmala as Lord Krishna is an evergreen treat!
Vinnava Yashodamma- Mayabazar: A beautiful narrative about the childhood deeds of Lord Krishna and his conversation with mother Yashoda is brilliantly portrayed in a musically extravagant manner in this track. A very special mention should be made for Sr.NTR’s priceless histrionics when Draupadi’s plea for help occurs!
Chandanda Charchita- Tenali Ramakrishna: An all time classic is rehashed in this film version in a breathtaking manner. P. Suseela excels in her rendition for this ever sweet number . It is also amazingly shot with Classical dance performances and melodious music.
Oh Cheli Kopama- Sri Krishna Tulabharam: Lord Krishna is said to have a special liking towards his favourite wife Satyabhama because of her sweet tantrums. Here is the song where Lord Krishna apologizes sweetly to her in his own clever style!
Priyurala Siggelane- Sri Krishna Pandaveeyam: Lord Krishna is known for his various lovers and a real charmer when it comes to women. Here is one melodious song which speaks of the same fact in the so called Sr.NTR style! Ghantasala and Suseela outperform each other through their immortal voices!
Muddugare Yashoda- Padamati Sandhya Ragam: SPB, Jandhyala and S.Janaki redefine the ultimate classic by Annamayya in their own style for a film’s unique situation. It is perhaps the only song where a foreigner boy is clad in Lord Krishna attire! SPB- the composer has unleashed a different dimension of the composition through his own perception!
Gopilola- Ladies Tailor: The peculiar filmmaker Vamshi chooses to relate the old time scenario of Lord Krishna teasing the gopikas to a situation in his film aesthetically and brilliantly. Ilaiyaraaja’s music, Veturi’s lyrics and SPB’s mesmerizing rendition is just an icing on the cake!
Mayadari Krishnayya- Mister Pellam: Artistic filmmaker Bapu also chooses Krishnashtami as a lovely occasion to celebrate with family and friends! This is a fun filled song where a modern family gathering still remembers their foundation and the significance of this festival!
Raamma Chilakamma- Choodalani Undhi: This fun filled song redefined the word heroism for Chiranjeevi and beautifully set over the conversation between Lord Krishna and his gopika! Happening in an old apartment complex in historic city Kolkata, it is an absolute treat as far as Lord Krishna songs are concerned!
Bhaje Bhaaje- Gopala Gopala: Perhaps after ages, a brilliant song which praises the eternity of Lord Krishna came in the form of this lovely melody. Insightful lyrics which say that God is within us, and Pawan Kalyan’s priceless expressions throughout is a feast!
Here’s wishing all readers of iQlikmovies a Happy Krishnashtami!
