Yeto Vellipoindi Manasu/Dhoni
If you love music of Maestro Ilayaraja chances are that you would love the songs of Yeto Vellipoindi Manasu too. The album lacks on the â€˜instant hitâ€™ category but it makes up for it with the repeatability factor. If you are addicted to this album chances are high that you might not be able to appreciate any album better. And while you are at it, do give a listen to Dhoni as well from the Maestro, it is a stunner as well.
