Anna Bond – Music Review

Audience will not expect nothing less than a massive hit from the successful combo of Jackie, which comprises of V Harikrishna, Suri, Yogaraj Bhat and Puneet Rajkumar. Last but not the least, there is also Sonu-Shreya-Kaikini factor that generates curiosity in the minds of fans on the romantic component in the album. Well, it is obvious for people to expect something big and better from these big names, who are coming together for upcoming Anna Bond. Read on the music review to know whether they have lived up to the audience expectations.

Song: Boni Aagada
Singer(s): Tippu
Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
V Harikrishna's knows how to strike a chord with listeners. The musician, who had given a huge hit to Tippu in Jackie in the form of 'Shiva anta...', has given him an opportunity again in Anna Bond. Well, like before, the young singer impresses the audience in this lively track. Yogaraj Bhat's words work again, as the track has the potential to top the chartbuster of the season.

Song: Yenendu Hesaridali
Singer(s): Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Jayanth Kaikini
Every time Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal come behind the mike for a track, there lies an expectation from a section of listeners, who eagerly await for a soft and easy-on-ears kind of track. This time again, the trio has teamed up for a romantic track. Sonu sets the mood with his sweet vocal in the first stage and Shreya joins him two-minute later. Kaikini's wonderful lyrics will have a huge impact on-screen.

Song: Thumba Nodbedi
Singer(s): V Harikrishna
Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
'Thumba nodbedi...' generated the hype even before the release of the album, after a few lines of the track were revealed on net. The track sung by V Harikrishna is the pick of the album. The rich usage of cylindrical percussion with the suitable voice of the musician backed with the Yogaraj Bhat's trademark style of lines, attract the listeners at the first hearing itself.

Song: Kaandanthe Maayavadanu
Singer(s): Puneet Rajkumar
Lyrics: Chi. Udaya Shankar
It is the remix version of 'Kaandanthe maayavadanu...' yesteryear song from Chelisuva Modagalu. It is noted that Puneet Rajkumar, who had crooned the original track when he was seven-year old, has sung the latest version too. Well, touching the classics to recreate the magic are always difficult, as there will be comparisons and the audience will expect bigger and better product. V Harikrishna starts off with a catchy tune but the Power Star voice fails to blend with the track in the initial part. However, it could have a completely different appeal when seen with visuals.

Song: He is Anna Bond
Singer(s): Ranjith, Naveen, Ramya
Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
The title track of Anna Bond has been composed like a Hollywood track. V Harikrishna has taken inspiration from the Bond films. Ranjith, Naveen and Ramya crooned track, is the mixture of English-Kannada lyrics. The song tells all about the hero. Harikrishna's beats are impressive and it overshadows the voices of the singers and not-so-impressive lyrics by Yogaraj Bhat.

Verdict:
Anna Bond is an exciting album, which has a couple of good tracks. Understanding the pulse of the audience, V Harikrishna and his team have given what fans were expecting from them. However, the album lacks freshness. If you compare Jackie and Anna Bond audio, we could easily make out that the songs in both the albums are similar in taste and nothing new. It seems like successful jodi has just applied the same formula of targeting masses with four numbers and class with one soundtrack. Nonetheless, the album is impressive. 'Thumba nodbedi...' and 'Boni aagada...' are our picks.
