Itu Itu Ani Chitikelu Evvarivo
Singers: Abhay Jodhpurkar, Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

The album begins on a nostalgic note with a beautiful melody tossed with amazing touches of ghatam and lilting guitar effortlessly with tabla. Abhay and Shreya deliver par excellence with their soothing vocals and Sirivennela’s legendary lyrics add like an icing on this musical cake. The interludes is like a detour to the 1940s era in India with masterful perfection. One can hear the classical touch of Carnatic Raaga Nata Bhairavi presented in breathtaking simplicity.

Ooru Erayyindhi Eru Horellindhi
Singers: Shankar Mahadevan
Lyrics: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

It is time for a rural marvel comprising of celebrating nadaswaram, a pompous rhythm section where British Bagpipes join this unique party. This song is like a cakewalk for a powerful singer like Shankar Mahadevan as it is marvelously topped with high voltage and optimism. Sirivennela’s lyrics progress in a storytelling fashion which describes the idyllic and peaceful lives of Indian villages in the old times.

Nijemanani Nammani
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

A royal yet melancholic detour occurs in the form of a beautiful melody composed in Carnatic Raaga Chaarukeshi with occasional deviations. Shreya Ghoshal’s drizzly vocals suit the mood perfectly and the crescendo styled string section is well balanced with contrasting tabla and minimal sequencing. Once again, the lyrics prove to be an essential factor to get a song reach a new hilt!

Bhaga Bhagamani
Singers: Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

Rightfully, an emotionally gripping song with a war cry arrives from the powerful voice of Vijay Prakash. Anguished horns, moody chorus and the tune roughly based on soulful Carnatic Raaga Panthuvarali creates the contrasting war atmosphere in a vividly imaginative fashion. The lyrics speak of various emotions during the war-time such as sadness, anger, despair and eventual hope. The usage of ominous flute is another masterstroke by the composer for a unique situation like this.

Raa Mundadugeddam
Singers: Keerthi Sagathia, Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

An interesting new perspective of the melancholic “Nijemanani Nammani” which evokes entirely new emotions with its various changeovers and brilliant lyrics once again. The track is like a realistic musical journey back to the gory, sadness, and grief experienced by every citizen of India during the Epic World War-2 sequence on which the film is based on. The lyrics in short are like a duel between two contrasting emotions- War and Love. Accordingly, tune also oscillates between Carnatic Raaga Charukeshi and Panthuvarali!

Love is War
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

The grand finale occurs with a breathtaking war theme – a magical western classical marvel comprising of trombone, trumpets, violin and what not? This track is like a tribute to every individual who sacrificed their life for this epic war which shook the World.

Verdict: Kanche is a musical and lyrical feast for the ears!
