And I sing another Telugu song tuned by Sandeep Chowta in "Saleem" for Dr. Mohanbabu....

Illeana & Vishnu Vardhan Babu

It's been a month where different things have happened. I had an operation on my right ankle to remove the steel implants placed around an year and a half back, to repair the Trimalleolar ankle fracture. I was laid up in bed again and had a pleasant surprise when "Sandeep Chowta" called me to sing another Telugu film song! Again this is a very big occassion after "Bujjigadu" in 2008. I flew to Mumbai and we recorded the song in "Yatra" his studio at Andheri. This time it's for "Dr. Mohan Babu" the Telugu Super Star, who also is the producer of the film.The film has been named "Saleem" and stars his son "Vishu Vardhan" and "Illeana" in the lead roles."YVS Chaudhury" directs the movie. The song is a solo one and a "breathless" kind of number. "Chandrabose" is the lyricist. Do wait for the Album which would be out the next month. It has 5 other peppy numbers.

Mejo Joseph

"Notebook" is a beautiful film which was directed by "Roshan Andrews" and has melodious songs tuned by the young and immensely talented "Mejo Joseph" who also happens to be my friend. We together had judged the last preliminary round of "Amrita T.V Superstar Junior 2". I got the minus tracks of the movie from him directly when he came to our College to inaugurate the arts festival. "Notebook" is his debut film.

"Iniyum" is a song that flows like a ghazal and has rich tones of acoustic instruments which makes hearing it a wonderful experience. The song has been sung both by "K.J Yesudas" and "Sudeep Kumar" as a duet with "Manjari" as the female voice.


Song: Iniyum Maunamo

Film: Notebook

Music: Mejo Joseph

Lyrics: Vayalar Sarath

Chandanalepa Sugandham-Vadakkan Veera Gaadha

Music director Ravi or Bombay Ravi as he is know in the south, is one of the very few stalwarts of Hindi film music who is alive today. He has given innumerable hits in Bollywood in the 60's and the 70's and even 80's like Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1960), Do Badan (1966), Humraaz (1967), Ankhen (1968), and Nikaah (1982). He won Filmfare awards for Gharana(1961) and Khandaan (1965). His other successful films include Waqt, Neel Kamal and Gumraah. He was instrumental in shaping the career of Mahendra Kapoor who died recently.
In the 80's he started composing for Malayalam films, became a big success there and thereafter has been a regular composer for director Hariharan. Every film for which he has composed music right from Panchagni has been a super hit. Some of them were Nakhakshatangal, Sargam, Vaishali, Five Star Hospital, etc. Today I present one of his super hit songs from Oru Vadakkan Veera Gaadha.

Melle Melle Mukhapadam....When melody reigned supreme...

This is another beautiful song from those times in the 90's when melody and lyrical value was supreme in films. The film "Oru Minnam Minunginte Nuruguvettam" was also a classic from Bharathan which was made immortal by the acting of Nedumudi Venu. Every song was excellent in the film. I have attempted "Melle Melle" from the film.

Chandana Manivaathil-Nostalgic Raveendran!

Before Reveendran Master had departed from this world, he had given at least one gem to every singer which he or she could treasure for ever in life! Chandana Manivaathil was such a gem of a song that G. Venugopal had the opportunity to sing. Though the film did not see the light of the day, it was one of the best songs that Venu ever sang. Based on the raga "Hindolam" it creates a magical aura of romance and mystery for the listener. Sometimes it makes me wonder if this song was created just for Venu. It has become immortal in his voice!
Raveendran Master left this world on 3rd March 2005. But he lives within our hearts always!
Song: Chandana Manivaathil
Film: Marikkunnilla Njan (1988)
Music: Raveendran
Original Singer: G. Venugopal
Lyrics: Ezhacheri Ramachandran

Sreeraagamo....Sarath's musical wizardry at its best!

It was in 1998 that I met Sarath first in Chennai. He was assisting my mentor Raveendran Master and had created the background music for the album 'Ponnonam' in which I had sung my best ever song 'Innu njan Ente' for master...
When he was 16, he recorded his first album in Tamil, `Sangeetha Paravai.' Actually, he began his career by singing for the film `Onninguvannenkil' under the baton of Syam .
`Kshanakatthu,' a Malayalam film, saw him make a successful debut in Malayalam film music. The five songs in the film were instant hits.
After these came more melodious songs from him in films like `Pavitram,' `Ottayal pattalam,' `Sindura rekha,' and `Tacholi Vargees Chekavar.'
Sarath is also a good Carnatic vocalist and has been under the guidance of maestro Balamuralikrishna since 1989. All his songs are deep rooted in classical music and it's his peculiarity that almost all his songs have interludes that have very complicated patterns using different instruments like the veena, and flute.
Though he has done only a few films all of them have songs that stand out and are a connoisseur's delight!
Sreeraagamo is a beautiful melody inter-woven in 'Kharaharapriya' made immortal in the golden voice of Yesudas.

Song: Sreeraagamo
Film: Pavithram (1995)
Original Singer: K.J Yesudas

ONAM...Oruvattam Koodi..........

It's ONAM once again! Malayalees all over the world celebrate ONAM in the best way that they can wherever they are. Those staying away from their near and dear ones in Kerala do miss the land they were born in and their dear ones. They also miss the many small small things they used to do in their childhood. Childhood memories are cherished by everyone. In those golden yesterday years we had many generations coming together for ONAM and for the children it was time to climb trees, run in the fields, pluck fruits, take a plunge in the river or the pool, and what not! When we look back we see that most of our traditional homes have been replaced by towering flats all over Kerala. Most of the above wonderful things that we enjoyed doing are just memories now and which the coming generation can just dream about or hear stories from us. This song is dear and near to the hearts of thousands of Malayalees all over Kerala and abroad. This song was an anthem of sorts in Colleges when the film was released in the 80's. It still continues to evoke nostalgia.
We would never ever forget such songs. They remain within us for ever.....maybe the wishes we have made would remain just wishes....unfulfilled...but yes....we all can have dreams and wishes. They carry us forward and keep us alive.

Song: Oruvattam Koodi
Film: Chillu
Original Singer: K.J Yesudas
Music: M.B Sreenivasan
