Dhruva audio review 

Newcomer Hiphop Tamizha has his task cut out.  Three of the four are written by Chandrabose.  Less-heard-of singers like Amit Mishra, Padmalatha and the music director himself fill the singers’ slot.

Dhruva Dhruva

Singer: Amit Mishra
Lyricist: Chandrabose

In his idealistic style, Chandrabose peppers the hero-praising song with Martin Luther King Jr’s ‘I have a dream that one day..’ legendary speech.  Invoking mythological/historical characters, the lyrics turn out interesting rhyming words like ‘tejam’, ‘nyzam’, besides alliterations like ‘rakshinche rajyangam’.   Hiphop Tamizha’s music is apt for a star hero like Ram Charan, coming as it does with the usual doses of crests and troughs.  Without being too boisterous, the beats pack a punch.  Amit Mishra’s vocals are a welcome change, sounding aptly intense wherever needed.

Choosa Choosa

Singers: Padmalatha, Sniggy
Lyricist: Chandrabose

The song is in the mold of a solo duet wherein the smitten girl keeps repeating the same words in a self-absorbed mood.  And toward that end, Chandrabose’s lyrics are simple yet evocative.  Padmalatha’s vocals have a youngish feel about them, sitting pretty with the playful mood and the girlish aura.  Although Hiphop’s ‘raga’ passes muster, the instrumentation is at its best.

Pareshanura

Singers: Padmalatha, Vishnu Priya (Backing Vocals)
Lyricist: Yadagiri

The actress-oriented number comes with the features of a Carnatic classical number.  Hiphop’s music allows the singer to give the best shot at being irreverent.  Yadagiri’s stanzas read like a whole meaningful sentence, the next line being as important in understanding the meaning of the first.  All in all, an enjoyable non-Tollywoodish number.

Neethoney Dance

Singers: Hiphop Tamizha, Nikitha Gandhi
Lyricist: Chandrabose

Sounding like a cross between a Bollywoodish pub number and a South Indian item song, ‘Neethoney Dance’ merely passes muster in revving it up. Hiphop wears the mantle of a singer and delivers an electrifying vocal.  Nikitha Gandhi’s vocals sound anew.  Chandrabose’s lyrics come with a heavy dose of English-language phrases, talking about the jamboree tonight.

Verdict:  An album that doesn’t boast of formulaic songs, this one has two actress-driven songs out of the four.  While the party-time song is a rip-off, the title track stands out for its meaningful lyrics and rendition.  A so-so album, overall.

Rating: 2.75/5
