Mamatala Talli slowly but steadily escalates into something majestic, aided splendidly by Keeravani's magnificent orchestration. The pensive Jeeva Nadhi is mostly situational, and likewise with Nippulaa Swasa Ga (Keeravani) as well, which sounds more like a rallying war cry given its period arrangements. Sivuni Aana is musically grand, riding very well on Keeravani's fantastic rendition, while Pacha Bottasi is pleasant string-based goodness sung superbly by Karthik and Damini. The composer opts for an utterly delightful assortment of contemporary sounds in the stunning Dhivara and its English version, and suitably doing the honours is Ramya Behara on the mic. Manohari, in one word, is bloody brilliant, super catchy and fabulously sung by Mohana Bhogaraju and Revanth. Keeravani leaves his distinctive stamp all over Baahubali.
