Last year music played a big part in Kannada cinema. Here are the ones that stand out.

Parichaya
Music Director: Jassie Gift 

This was a case of extraordinary music in a badly directed film.

While talented music director Jassie Gift showed his brilliance in the music composition, the film's director Sanjay failed to present a credible story.

Nadedaaduva Kaamanabille, Kudinotave Manamohaka and Jigi Jigi Jigidhu were not only amazingly composed and picturised but the songs also had some wonderful lyrics by Jayanth and Kaviraj.

Mano Murthy made a strong comeback with ManasaareEllo Maleyagidhe Endhu, Naa Naguva Modhalene and Kanna Haniyondhige were the top songs from the film.

They were also beautifully picturised by Sathya Hegde. The meaningful lyrics of Jayanth Kaikini and Yogaraj Bhat added to the quality of the album.

Hey Paro rendered by Tippu and shot in South Africa became so popular that it can easily be labelled as the song of the year. 

Muththuraja Kaalitta Saidu Bidolo, Poli Ivanu and Kuch Kuch were also huge hits.
