Singer: Udit Narayan,Shreya Ghoshal
Lyricis: Seetarama Sastry

The anticipated album begins with a feel good number with the superior vocals of Udit Narayan and Shreya Ghoshal. The song has a folk aspect to it and the composer uses old style instruments to get the ancient feel in perfect sense. The interludes are rich and woven royally over strings and power packed chorus. Seetharama Sastry’s lyrics are quite captivating and give a nice feel to the song.

Gana Gana Gana

Singer: Simha,Anand Bhaskar,Vamsi
Lyricist: Seetarama Sastry

On the contrary, a war cry style song arrives next with high voltage rhythm section, usage of strings and trombone giving an ancient feel throughout. Simha who usually sings mass numbers does a good job with this inspirational song. The interludes are beautifully adept with ancient musical instruments such as bagpipes, horns and single string violin as well.


Singer: S.P. Balasubrahmanyam,Shreya Ghoshal
Lyricist: Seetarama Sastry

A classical number in the lines of Hindustani Raag Jog sung by the legendary SPB and he single handedly carries the song over his shoulders with his vocals. Despite the strong north Indian flavours, the song manages to impress with its richness and royal approach. The interludes have a touch of Raag Puriya Dhansri but again arrives to the original realms.

Saaho Saarvabowma Saaho

Singer: Vijayprakash,Keerti Sagathiya
Lyricist: Seetarama Sastry

The inspirational mode is retaind with this power packed number with the high voltage vocals of Vijay Prakash. Seetarama Sastry’s lyrics take a front seat with his mesmerizing usage of words and the string section and progressive rhythm section. The song has a feel of Lord of the Rings theme but retains the Telugu nativity with great vigor.

Singhamu Pai Langhinchenu (Kadhaa Gaanam)

Singer: Vijayprakash
Lyricist: Sai Madhav

The album arrives to a finale with a storytelling song with amazing lyrics by Sai Madhav and Vijay Prakash delivers par excellence once again. The song oscillates between fast pace and steadiness and does a good job in narrating a historic story.


Verdict: Gautamiputra Satakarni is a fair album from Chiranthan Bhatt with its dose of inspirational numbers and duets. However, the album would have done more with Telugu nativity and comprises of more north flavours.
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
