Can Mahesh - DSP Be A Combination Like Mahesh - Mani Sharma?

Tap to expand
Mahesh Babu seems to go with a music composer who worked magic for him at the box office again and again. He repeated Mani Sharma for all his movies, since Rajakumarudu except for films like Yuvaraju, Naani, Nijam and Sainikudu.

They worked for 11 movies out of his first 15 movies and they had hit audios like Rajakumarudu, Murari, Bobby, Okkadu, Athadu, Pokiri and Arjun. Even Khaleja, Vamsi, Takkari Donga had highly popular singles. Only audio that failed in their combination would be Athidi, but there were few songs that were popular at the release time.

Thaman's entry into films broke their combination as Dookudu music became a huge hit. But Businessman, Aagadu did not have similarly popular audios.

Mickey J Mayer could score hits for Seethamma Vaakitlo Srimalle Chettu but he failed with Brahmostavam. Only composer to have failed twice with Mahesh would be Harris Jayraj. He scored three hit singles in Sainikudu but the movie failed and in Spyder, he failed to score even a hit single for the audio.

AR Rahman scored music for Naani and even though movie failed, music is still popular. Ramana Gogula gave hit album for Yuvaraju. After Brahmostavam, the most rejected album for Mahesh would be RP Patnaik's Nijam, still it had one big hit song during its release.

Devi Sri Prasad seems to have replaced Mani Sharma's place in Mahesh Babu movies. The composer is being repeated ever since, Srimanthudu, even though their first album is 1Nenokkadine.

Nenokkadine songs are popular even today and Srimanthudu could be rated as their best audio. After Bharat Ane Nenu, DSP is working with Mahesh continuously.

He composed songs for Maharshi and Sarileru Neekevvaru. The talk is that the composer will be repeated for Vamshi Paidipally film too with Mahesh.

Fans of the actor want Mahesh to continue with a composer who gives hits after hits like Mani Sharma but DSP seems to have been downgrading his quality for each album.

Out of 5 of their albums till date, except for Srimanthudu, none have been as big hits as DSP's Manmadhudu, Mass, Arya, Shankardada MBBS, Arya-2, Bommarillu, Anandam, Venky, Jalsa, Gabbar Singh, Attharintiki Daredi and Rangasthalam.

Sarileru Neekevvaru audio singles are not going as viral as Ala Vaikuntapuramulo audio and DSP is facing huge criticism for being too routine these days.

So, fans want Mahesh to change his composer or they want DSP to re-invent himself like SS Thaman.

For now, 2000's decade where Mahesh albums were dominated by one composer Mani Sharma scores high in comparison with 2010's with Thaman, DSP and Mickey J Mayer audios.

None of them, could come close to Mani audios for Mahesh and DSP-Mahesh might be a hit pair with 3 box office hits out of 4 releases with one - Sarileru Neekevvaru box office release pending, it can never equate to Mani-Mahesh combination if DSP keeps spiralling down further and further.

 Hope, their sixth film will be their best yet. Vamshi is going for a Gangster Drama,say sources. Let's wait and see, hear.
