Music Review: Yevade Subramanyam (Telugu)

Composer(s): Radhan

Beautifull Zindagi, with its lovely arrangements, a superb chorus and a raspy rendition by Nikhita Gandhi, makes for a beautiful listen. The brassy Nuvvu Nuvvu Kadhu and the short title song are both heavy on electronic sounds and aptly racy, if a little situational. Mohit Chauhan, despite coming off a little awkward, does well singing the rock-based Idhera, while Harini rules the dreamy ethereal-sounding O Kala. The minimal orchestration, particularly the violins, works wonders! The soundtrack's surprise is the composer's brilliant rework of the Ilaiyaraaja classic Thendral Vanthu Theendumbothu. It's captivating and singers Senthil and Rihitha do their best to match up to the original. Yevade Subramanyam ultimately is Radhan's show all the way!
