Music Review and download - APTHARAKSHAKA (KANNADA - GURUKIRAN)

Chamundi taayi works because of SPB’s powerful vocals and the guitars Guru adds wisely to an otherwise standard song. Kabadi kabadi is as mainstream and massy as it can get — SPB to the rescue again, in a catchy package typical of Guru’s style. Kabadi’s other version with Karthik is even better!

With the ghost of Ra ra, Omkara and Garane gara garane play it straight, with a sweeping, intentionally-outmoded, classically oriented orchestration, while harmonious Rakshaka aptharakshaka is the pick of the soundtrack — Guru turns in a soulful tune with a lilting package! A soundtrack befitting the sequel’s expectations.
