As "Jai Lava Kusa" music album is not so impressive, people are pointing their guns at Devi Sri Prasad. Some people are adding that these days he's giving flop-tunes for films with poor-content and they are showing some statistics too. Are they true?
In the recent times, DSP has given fantastic music for films like S/o Satyamurthy, Kumari 21F, Nannaku Prematho and Khaidi No 150. All those films are big hits no matter how the film critics nailed them. At the same time, he gave average music, we mean only 2-3 hit tunes in the album for movies like Srimanthudu, Nenu Sailaja, Nenu Local and Duvvada Jagannadham, and those movies also did well at box office. But movies like Shivam, Puli (Vijay's film), Sardaar, Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam and Jaya Janaki Nayaka that are scored by DSP got albums that we couldn't recollect even one song. No matter what are all those big claims producers make, these movies didn't fare well, they say so.
People feel that DSP gives just one song in advance and after watching the footage from first and second schedules he gives other songs. "If the content is poor, then he will give some dull sounding tunes. However, if the content is stunning, his songs will be more catchy, and music album will be a hit" some commented.
This logic may not hold good because there are films that got sick music from DSP and then turned super hits at box office. Other than title song, can you remember any song from Srimanthudu? But the film is an industry-hit. No doubt, not even one song could be mouthed easily from Balayya's Legend, but the film is a sensation. Except for a couple of songs, even Janatha Garage songs are also not catchy, but still, the film is the biggest hit in Jr NTR's career.
It's better to say if a movie has good content it will become a super hit. And we can't blame Devi Sri Prasad's music for failures, whether the music appeals to all or not. His upcoming Telugu albums include Nani's MCA, Ram's Vunnadhi Okkate Jindagi, Mahesh Babu's Bharat Anu Nenu and Ram Charan's Rangasthalam 1985.
