Hudugru – Music Review
V Harikrishna reversed the trend last year with his rock numbers, when the Kannada film industry was overdosed with melody and romantic tracks. In fact, he ruled the year 2010 with his back-to-back hit compositions in the form of Jackie and Super. Now, he has scored the music for yet another Puneet Rajkumar"s movie Hudugru, a remake of Tamil superhit Naadodigal. As expected, Yogaraj Bhat, who has become a special song specialist, and Jayanth Kaikini along with Nagendra V Prasad have penned the lyrics. The moment these names appear on the credits, one would always expect the best out of them. Let's see what they have delivered.

Pankaja
Singer (s): Naveen Madhav, V.Harikrishna, Mamatha
Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
V Harikrishna and Yogaraj Bhat have ensured that even Kannada film industry can deliver good item numbers like 'munni badnaam hui…" and 'sheela ki jawani…". It is the Sandalwood"s answer to those special songs. We just need one hearing before we see ourselves humming the song. The music director could not have expected more from Naveen Madhav and Mamatha. Their voices have perfectly suited the song. However, the track makes you believe that you have heard the tune before, especially when the chorus joins the proceedings.

Neeralli Sanna
Singer (s):
Sonu Nigam
Lyrics: Jayanth Kaikini
Sonu Nigam has become the first choice for the Sandalwood music directors, when it comes to romantic songs. He has crooned a solo number for which Jayanth Kaikini has written the lyrics. One would always have huge expectations on this combo, as they have given many chartbuster songs before. However, the track 'neeralli sanna...' is not an instant hit material and one needs to listen quite a few times before it comes on his lips. But there are some songs, which will be good to listen, when we see it with visuals and this song comes under that category.

Neeralli Sanna
Lyrics:
Jayanth Kaikini
Singer (s): Sunitha Gopurajaa
Sunitha Gopurajaa has lent her voice for 'neeralli sanna...' for the same tune and lyrics. The melody track will undoubtedly attract the female audience. Her soft vocal gives a soothing experience to a listener.

Yen Chandane Hudugi
Singer (s): Sukhwinder Singh, Kailash Kher, Vijaya Prakash, Priya Himesh
Lyrics: Nagendra V Prasad

The track 'yen chandane hudugi...' is vocalized by Sukhwinder Singh, Kailash Kher, Vijaya Prakash and Priya Himesh. Sukhwinder kick-starts the song with folk lyrics. Kailash's voice adds zing to the number. It is purely a situational song and Nagendra V Prasad's lyrics are good at parts. Vijaya and Priya's voices go unnoticed with the chorus.

Shambho Shiva Shambo
Singer (s): Shankar Mahadevan
Lyrics: Nagendra V Prasad
The best song is out in the form of 'shambho shiva shambo...' sung by Shankar Mahadevan and it is a tailor-made number for him. The song is high on energy and Nagendra Prasad's lyrics have blended well with the pace of the song. It gives an insight about the serious side of the story of the film. Harikrishna has retained the original tune from Naadodigal for the number. It will surely top the chart.

Overall:
Hudugru album has lived up to the expectations of the audience. It is a good album which has got enough number of decent tracks. The songs 'pankaja…' and 'shambho shiva shambo...' are sure shot chartbusters. Moreover, it does not have a single below average song.
