‘Naa Nuvve’ is young, vibrant and charming
By Bryan Durham - May 9, 2018
1. Hey Hey ILU (Male Version): Takes a pointed dig at love in the times of SMS lingo. Pokes fun at the flurry of messages and notifications left in the wake of a relationship. Tipu sings the male version of the track (lyrics by Ananta Sriram) like a guy truly driven nuts by it all. Catchy AF, young and relevant.
2. Nijama Mansaa: Make no mistake, this is Mm manasi‘s track all the way. Yazin Nizar gets to do precious little by way of displaying vocal range, by comparison. A romantic rock ballad, with verse by Ananta, it has its moments.
3. Right Right Right: Aggression is the name of the game here. A dance track, with verse by Ramajogayya Shastri, it sounds like a tourist’s roadmap to the city of Hyderabad. Passable.
4. Chiniki Chiniki: A sentimental track sung by Karthik and Saptaparna with lyrics by Ananta Sriram, it feels like the two lovers are navigating new dimensions to their relationship.
5. Premika: Sharreth saves the best song (penned by Ramajogayya S) for himself and just as well. He’s got the pipes to back up that risk with. It’s a big-room track that has a powerful choral arrangement. You sense pain, you sense longing, you sense passion. It feels like it’s over too soon, though.
6. Naa Nuvve: Priya Mali is a revelation. She imbues Ananta’s verse with a rare charm. The title song is a piano-backed beauty of a composition.
7. Hey Hey ILU (Female Version): Rita is all sass and verve as she owns the song and if it’s possible, makes the song better and more likeable than it is.
VERDICT: Young, vibrant and charming, Sharreth’s music is a well-done effort that doesn’t lose its hold over you.>
