Bangalore, Jan 24 (IANS) It has been yet another Mano Murthy fortnight, but Hari Krishna's album for 'Galipata' tops the charts at the moment. The top five Kannada albums are:
1. 'Galipata' - The album tops because of the huge hype about the film starring golden star Ganesh. 'Minchaagi neenu baralu' rendered by Sonu Nigam and 'Thadeem Dheem Thana' sung by Chitra are the top songs. Youngsters appreciate the title song for its peppy music.
2. 'Milana' - It stays a chartbuster with its melodious songs like 'Ninnindhale ninnindhale' and 'Male Ninthu Hodha Mele'. Mano Murthy has created magical tunes for the film featuring Puneet Raj Kumar.
3. 'Gaja' - Composer Hari Krishna has always delivered top-class songs for Darshan films. According to Ashwini Audios, which has released the album, songs like 'Maathu nannolu', 'Aithalakidi' and 'Lambooji lambooji' are the top songs.
4. 'Cheluvina Chiththaara' - Mano Murthy says continued popularity of the film's songs is not surprising as they have a classical touch. 'Ullasada hoo male', 'Kanaso idhu' and 'Iralaaare cheluve' are the top songs.
5. 'Ee Bandana' - Melodious number 'Adhe bhoomi, adhe haadu' is certainly the best song in the Vishnnuvardhan starrer. Mano Murthy is the music director.
