DSP Vs Thaman: Who Is The Best?
Devi Sri Prasad and Thaman are the top league music directors of Tollywood for the past several years. There are several other music directors in Tollywood but none of them could rule Tollywood like these two music directors. The fan following is also very high for these two than the other music directors.
Devi is known for chartbuster albums right from the beginning of his career. Anandam, Manmadhudu, Varsham, Venky, Arya, Shankar Dada MBBS, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana, Bommarillu, Jalsa, Ready.. the list goes on and on. He scored music for 75 films in Tollywood till now and his recent chartbuster albums include 'Rangasthalam'.
If we talk about Thaman, he started his music career a little late but he made a mark for himself. His first chartbuster album was Kick. With films like Brindavanam, Dookudu, Sarrainodu, Tholi Prema, Aravinda Sametha he proved that he can deliver superb albums. He reached the peaks of his career with Ala Vaikunthapuramulo.
Devi Sri Prasad and Thaman had their highs and lows in their respective careers but they never were out of the top music director's race. Whenever Thaman is written off by critics, he comes up with a superb album. Ala Vaikunthapurramloo has silenced the majority of his critics. Even Devi does the same. He seemed to be out of from after Rangasthalam but he has impressed with the Uppena songs. Nee Kannu Neeli Samudram and Dhak Dhak Dhak have impressed the music lovers big time.
The surprising thing about these two is that they are Chennai based music directors though they are Telugus. We can say both are specialists in their own right.
