The new songs only further add to the classiness of the whole album. They (Yetu Pone, O Kalala Kathala, and Mama Choodara) are more thematic in nature with lyrics about love and pain and friendship. The seriousness of the movie is already established with the trailer, and the songs compound the effect.
It is clear that the songs that are out so far are the ones that had the potential to be a success of any kind musically. A couple of them, ‘Kadallale’, and ‘Nee Neeli Kallalona’ have also registered, but none of them has mass appeal and is restricted to music aficionados. Well, at least that would be the case before release as they lack the peppy vibe.
We are not comparing anything here. But think of Fidaa, it was also a classy album, but the peppiness of music helped it register before the release and enhance the buzz. In fact, Vijay Deverakonda’s Geetha Govindam too had the same classy vibes, but it was more commercially viable stuff, cinema and music-wise. Dear Comrade, in comparison, is more limiting until we see the movie.
Justin Prabhakaran has provided the music to the movie which is getting a pan-South India release. Bharat Kamma directs the film produced by Mythri Movie Makers. Dear Comrade hits screen worldwide on July 26th.
