Film: "Sri Anjaneyam"(Telugu); Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Mallikarjun and S. P. Balasubramaniam; Producer-Director Krisha Vamsi; Music Director: Mani Sharma
Krishna Vamsi has extracted a remarkable mix of tunes from ace composer Mani Sharma.
'Breathless' Shankar Mahadevan elevates the devotional number "Ooregi Ravaiyah" with his resonant voice. Of wide appeal, too, is another
devotional number "Rama Rama" rendered by Mallikarjun.
A melodious duet, "Avvayi Thuvayi" by Tippu and Sriya and the teasing number "Poola Gamagama" follow the devotional fare.
S.P. Balasubramaniam's "Tikka Makka" sounds different and the agony of a disciple finds touching rendition in the last number "Ae Muggamanukonu".
It is a rare fusion of love duets and devotional numbers. The credit for this unique album goes to Vamsi.
