Janatha Garage is an upcoming entertainer starring Young Tiger Jr.NTR and Malayalam Superstar Mohan Lal in lead roles. The film also has Samantha and Nitya Menen as female leads. Music for the film is composed by high voltage DSP and directed by Srimanthudu fame Koratala Siva. All the songs are pened by Rama Jogayya Sastry. Here is an iQlik exclusive audio review of the album:
The album begins in a typical DSP mark with Rock on Bro sung by Raghu Dixit with full energy and vigor. The riveting electric guitar and thumping drums guarantee a fun ride and suit the album’s perfect appeal. The interludes are well laden with appealing chord progression and strings.

It is now time to strike a philosophical chord with a powerful number Pranaamam sung brilliantly by Shankar Mahadevan. Rama Jogayya Sastry’s thoughtful lyrics add a new flavor to the song and also give a deep aspect to it. Many genres such as Indian Classical, Trance and Easy listening are effortlessly fused into this track.

Ne Selavidigi is a beautiful composition sung by the supremely talented Shwetha Menon supported by soft piano and amazing violin touches. The vintage DSP is clearly evident in this song and it is a pleasure to hear the same. Though the song is shorter in duration, it leaves a lasting impact on the listener.

The gears are shifted to take a speed up mode with Jayaho Janatha and revisit the philosophical debate with the vocals of Sukhwinder Singh and Vijay Prakash now. The song touches various emotions such as anger, tension along with balance.

DSP gets back to his forte with a quirky duet Apple Beauty sung by Yazin Nazir who sang a memorable song Chaaruseela earlier in Srimanthudu. The groovy beats are quite fun to hear and the trendiness is evident in the orchestration.  Rama Jogayya Sastry’s lyrics are poetic and at the same time suit the modern listener’s requirements.

The finale hits in style with Pakka Local- a peppy item rendered by Geetha Madhuri and Sagar who are adept in delivering such songs. The song is high on energy levels in terms of rhythm section with massy folk percussions.  The interludes sustain the energy levels with good ease.


Janatha Garage is an enjoyable fare from DSP with its own share of melodies and mass numbers. But it is the thoughtful songs which take the front seat.

Rating: 3.25/5
