The other two songs, with the exception of Kalavathi and Penny, are forgettable. The background music was also not up to par. It fell short of elevating key scenes in the film. After an eight-year hiatus, Thaman reunited with Mahesh Babu. They had previously collaborated on projects for dookudu and Aagadu. Thaman's weakest work for Mahesh, as well as his weakest work in recent years, is Sarkaru Vaari Paata.
Fans would usually be posting recordings from the theatres by this time, thanking Thaman for his participation. Except for SVP, we've seen this with all of his recent biggies. Many Mahesh admirers believe devi sri prasad would have awarded the actor a higher rating than Thaman. The star composer is also collaborating with trivikram on Mahesh's next film. We'll have to wait and watch if he redeems himself and produces a better work for that film.
