As usual the influx of outside singers is more. More music directors beyond the boundary of Karnataka also scored music for Kannada films in 2009.
Fortunately V Harikrishna the local guy bags the top position and his scoring in ‘Raj the Showman’ Hey Hey Paaru Hele Paaru…sung by Hyderabad singer Tippu and Anoop Seelin scoring in ‘Eddelu Manjunatha’ also reached the peak in popularity. Another local singer Anuradha Bhat’s ‘Marali Mareyaagi…in ‘Savaari’ became very popular but unfortunately in the CD inlay card Shreya Goshal name was printed.
Ello Maleyagidhe Andhu…..Sonu Nigam this year Hindhe Iddubittaru….his solo album ‘Neene Bari Neene’ with nine songs sung by him (for which Mano Murthy scored the music and Jayanth Kaikini written the lyrics) and VCD of two songs was also released this year by Ashok Kheney. Kailash Kher sung Hale Pathre Hale Kabbina arre Hoy… was lapped up by the front benchers.
