1.Diamond Girl-Yazin Nizar
Sai Karthik offers a breezy solo at the start of the album. The lyrics of the number denote the hero's wooing tactics. With engaging guitar strums, interesting string sections in the interludes and a trance-like feel, this number is sure to stay on your playlists for a long time. Yazin Nizar's carefree singing is peppered with classical touches occasionally. Heartwarming melody!
An out and out mass number is up next. Going by the lyrics, this seems to be the introduction song for the hero. The song is replete with foot-tapping commercial beats, nadaswaram sections, synthesizers in the interlude and Simha's hoarse vocals. A passable potboiler.
3.Ding Dong Darling-MLR Karthikeyan,Divija Kartheek
Since the movie is a remake of Maan Karate, the Darling Dambakku equivalent comes in the form of this song. Every aspect of this number sounds like the Tamil version, except the slight deviation in the tune, the presence of two charanams and the lead singers who perform fabulously. Especially Divija Kartheek's mellowed rendition is something to look out for.
4.Adagaledani-Sai Charan,Deepthi Parthasarathy
This one is a fast-paced romantic duet which is punctuated with a steady rhythm and ear-pleasing string section in the interludes. This number also has a trance-like atmosphere and the repetitive 'O mere jaana' line is addictive. The singers Sai Charan and Deepthi Parthasarathy croon with elan. Though the number is similar to many Tollywood love numbers, it has a tinge of classicism to it. Likeable one!
Yet another mass number finds a place in the album. But this time the arrangement is a western one. Tippu renders his lines with power while Geetha Madhuri's voice suits well for a dance tune like this one. The song has all elements for a commercial Telugu item song and will go down well with the front-benchers.
This remake of Maan Karate has a decent album composed by Sai Karthik. Though there is nothing to boast of, the numbers are passable and chartbuster materials.
