Music Review: Keshava (Telugu)

Composer(s): Mikey McCleary, Sunny M. R.
Listen to the songs online here: Saavn

The traditional composition Kaala Bhairava Ashtakam (its retro-jazz variant by Mikey McCleary aside) is given a punchy guitar-laden makeover (Roland Fernandes suitably doing the honours), while Shalmali Kholgade does wonders with her rendition of the synth-infused melody Telusa Neeku Bahusa. Arijit Singh, for his part, turns in a sincere vocal performance of the tuneful Yedisthe Rarevaru and the racy Po Poradi. Sunny M. R., despite a no show in 2016, makes a welcome return with Keshava.
