Jersey Songs - Music Review

Jersey is an upcoming biographical sports drama written and directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri with Nani and Shraddha Srinath as the lead. Gowtham's musical sense is apparent in his earlier film Malli Raava and he collaborates with Anirudh for his second film. Let's check out whether Anirudh able to recreate his magic once again in his sophomore Telugu album or not.

Adhento Gaani Vunnapaatuga: Adhento Gaani Vunnapaatuga's rousing tune is complemented by wonderful arrangement beefed up by the chorus portions and string sections which gives the song splendid soundscape. Sajith Satya's bass line and Anirudh's singing jazzed up easily especially when he goes 'Velugulaina velisipoyene'. An overall wonderful start to the album.


Spirit of Jersey: Spirit of jersey is expectedly anthemic one and the tune sticks to the genre's formula, the punching rhythm, sprightly singing and the thumping percussion sounds. The arrangements in the interludes make this one an enjoyable listening experience, especially with the Ananthakrishnan's violin solos. Kaala Bhairava explosive singing adds enough gravitas to the song.


Padhe Padhe: The pièce de résistance of the soundtrack is undeniably Padhe Padhe where Shakthishree is killing it when the tune goes as 'Padhe Padhe' and the singer's hypnotic singing is out of the world. Anirudh's colloquial singing perfectly complements it. The dreamy flavour of the tune starts with the wave sounds in the prelude and stunning soundscape, especially around the title hook and subdued flute bit in Brodha's rap makes this one easily the best song in the soundtrack.


Prapanchame Ala: Prapanchame Alaa is completely Shashaa Tirupati's show and the synth-dominated soundscape perfectly fits the bill. Inno Genga's vocals are beautifully interspersed behind Shashaa's lead vocals. The more awesomeness followed by Keba Jeremiah's classical guitar show in the interludes. The tune turns more beautiful with the classically inclined charanam where Shashaa reaches high in ' Prathi Kshanamu Brathuku Oka Jagadame'.


Needa Padadhani: Anirudh ends the soundtrack with the melancholy Needa Padadhani where the mix of gloominess and angst is expressed both in terms of Darshan Raval's singing as well as Keba's screeching guitar strums in the interludes.


Bottomline: Anirudh hits right out of the park in his second Telugu film after Agnyathavaasi and Ananthakrishnan combination with Anirudh continues to give splendid result in the overall soundtrack quality from the composer.


Rating: 3.75/5

Pick of the Album: Padhe Padhe, Prapanchame Ala, Adhento Gaani Vunnapaatuga.
