Sometimes as a hobby we all love singing. But as a profession, not all of us have the needed skills. The singers we listen to in our music players are skilled professionals. Similarly, every field has its own required skills. For some lighter moments, some of our Telugu actors tried their hand in recording for a song. Once they stepped into the recording theater, that song earned a special importance to be heard. Everyone wanted to listen how the actor would sound when he/she sings.
Thammudu.. arey thammudu from Master – This was one of the first songs to be sung by an actor in Telugu. One can easily find out that the singer is not professional, but who cares, the actor chose to sing it. He sang it!
Kaatama Rayuda from Atharintiki Daredi – While PK had sung even in earlier movies, this one song was a delightful surprise and PK sang it with all ease.
Lachamma from Ishq – We all know how it performed! In fact, it was after this song, the craze to sing for many actors grew.
SWATHI REDDY & NIKHIL SIDHARTH
Yo yo yo yo memu (Hangover) from Swamy Ra Ra – A peppy number has Swathi’s voice dominating throughout.
Ammamo Ammo from Ala Modhalaindhi – Nitya Menen was a total surprise for Telugu cinema with this movie. Nandini Reddy’s find was a multi talented star. The best of the lot here.
Joru from Joru – The title song of Joru is a proper mix of all the Telugu poems in a hummable tune. While from childhood, we had troubles in mugging up the poems, Rashi sang it with all ease.
Notanki Notanki from Power – Ravi Teja’s another combo with SS Thaman. The auto-tuning in this one makes and breaks the song. One can hardly recognise if this is Ravi Teja’s voice.
Raakhasi from Rabhasa – Though a decent song, auto tuning is the same issue here too. Guess that’s the issue with almost all of SS Thaman songs.
Yaandiroo from Dongata – One rare moment when you also get to hear Lakshmi Manchu sing.
Kobbari Aakulu Kalagalipe from Kobbari Matta – It’s unbelievable but surprisingly Sampoornesh Babu delivered a soothing song (minus the lyrics). He is not going to stop!!
