I have the following tidbits ( which I read/heard somewhere in interviews)to share with you:

1.In Bharathiraja's 'Pudhumaippenn', VM wrote a song as:

"Aayiram janmam eduththaalum unnaip pirivathillai!
Unnaip pirivathaanaal, Kanne, ini janmame eduppathillai!" For this, IR had already planned a tune in mind and kept requesting VM to fit the song into the tune. As it was getting very difficult to break the lyrics, VM scrapped these two lines and wrote afresh "Kaadhal mayakkam! Azhagiya kangaL thavikkum! AalinganangaL paravasam ingu anumathi ilavasam .... etc.," and the rest is history!

2. In "Rikshakkaran", Vaali was requested to write a song with MGR holding a child and singing of taking revenge of the villains! Kavignar started with " naan oru kai paarkkiREn! neram varum kEtkiREn ! Poonaiyalla pulithaan endRu pOgap pOgak kaattugiREN!" This was found to be too harsh, especially with a child in hand. Then he wrote the lines, " angE sirippavargaL sirikkattum adhu aaNava sirippu, ingE nee sirikkum punsirippO aanandha sirippu!"

This was kept as the first stanza and the " naan oru kai paarkkiREn" portion was taken to the end as the finale! Now, we can appreciate the whole thing better, can't we?

Hi ! folks I have few titbits, this is just one.
I was a great friend of late MD V.Kumar.
He used to tell me many incidence happened in his life. One such is he was composing songs for the film "Ethir Neechal" a balachandar film and the song was vetri venduma. They planned that for TMS to sing and nagesh to dance as nagesh was a great dancer.
When TMS came for recording he listned to the tune and said what nonsense is this I will not sing this stupid tune and left the place. So they called Seerkazhi to sing. After recording at the time of shooting Nagesh heard the song and said he can't dance for that but KB never got depressed he put that song as the title song . It became a mega hit when the film was released and Seerkazhi got great name from that song.

11-11-2004, 12:14 AM
Thinking of the great song writer Vaali these lines are great.
Jayalalitha was acting with MGR and her first film with Sivaji was "Galata Kalyanam". The first duet in that film is written by Vaali. Guess what -
" Nalla idam nee vantha idam, varavendum kathal Maharani"

11-11-2004, 12:14 AM
True...Vaali used perfectly that Entry of JJ in shivaji's films..

GV posted the following text many months ago.

"Artists of yester years, who have financial and other difficulties must be helped in whichever way possible! Would all of us be spending (wasting?:) these countless hours day after day on PP and other TFM Page threads if it weren't for the selfless contributions from these great souls? The pleasure and satisfaction we derive when listening to A.M. Raja, Jicki, P.B.S. and the other artists cannot be measured in dollars and cents. They are worth their weight in gold. I think we all owe it to them!"

Can anyone tell if there is a Fund that exists for honoring all these great singers? Thanks

11-11-2004, 12:14 AM
"I was told that Dr KJ.Yesudas was not allowed inside the Sabharimala temple IS IT TRUE?"

Everyday the first song played in Sabarimala temple is Harivarasanam by KJY. Sabarimala is not constrained for Hindus. Any one can enter.
( Ofcource not in Garba Gruha)

By the way, He is not allowed to enter Guruvavur Temple.
Once a program was organized for Chemmbai. KJY's guru. They did not want KJY to accompany Chembai inside the Temple. So the Dias was set outside the temple.

this site is indeed very good and kindles the memory of veterans like kannadasan and vaali. I profusely thank the contributors of interesting tidbits and look forward to more such information.
I am an ardent fan of Kannadasan, of course. I could not control my tears while reading tidbits about this great poet, the greatest of all times.

thanks a lot

For what it is worth, based on the article on Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer (the 'pithAmaha' of Carnatic Music) in 'Kumudam Junction' 01-01-2004 (available online), it is mentioned that, SSI had IR's photo in his bedroom facing his bed - so he always wakes at IR's face.

(eng) ALERT: We need 320 character slots for thamizh (tamil) language which is alloted only 128 character slots. Current allocation is not enough to hold all the alphabets and the encoding scheme is not simple to follow. This is an very urgent need. Otherwise the future thamizh (tamil) computer users will severely suffer. Please dont have a different openion on this. Thamizh is our language and we are having the rights and responsibility to have a well defined character set along with the other languages of this world, where most of the languages are having more than enough character slots for them.

Friends, we all know how steeped into spirituality , our Illayaraja is. Here is an anecdote told by maestro himself.Few years ago ,Raja was invited as a guest to the JK Foundation centre at Varanasi.When Raja was there at Varanasi, he used to take a long stroll during evenings along the garden lined with various trees adjacent to the flowing Ganges, outside the guesthouse, where he was put up. On one such an evening stroll, Raja was accompanied by the JK Foundation Chairman Shri Krishnaji . After walking for about 45 minutes, they sat on a stone slab which was in the middle of a mango grove. Raja felt a strange peace engulfing him and he went into a deep trance, oblivious of the world. After about half an hour, Raja came back to his senses and asked Krishnaji the reason for his mystic experience. Krishnaji replied with a smile that the mango grove, where they were sitting, once was barren without fruits and flowers. The people around decided to chop off the barren trees as they fely they were not of any use. JK, the spiritual Guru came to know of the cruelty to be meted out to the barren trees. It seems, he went up to them, lovingly stoked them and told them "hereafter you will bloom and bear fruits". Lo!!! From the next day onwards, the barren mango trees started flowering and in few months, they became proud bearers of luscious mangoes.Krishnaji told Raja that the sacred place was filled with JK's love and the mango grove was a testimony to his limitless love. Raja's experience was due to that divine love which engulfed the whole place.

Oh, what did Delaware, boys? Oh, what did Delaware?
Oh, what did Delaware, boys? Oh, what did Delaware?
Oh, what did Delaware, boys? Oh, what did Delaware?
I ask you now as a personal friend, what did Delaware?

She wore her New Jersey, boys. She wore her New Jersey.
She wore her New Jersey, boys. She wore her New Jersey.
She wore her New Jersey, boys. She wore her New Jersey.
I tell you now as a personal friend, she wore her New Jersey.

Other verse pairs include:

Oh, what does Iowa? She weighs a Washington.
Oh, what does Idaho? She hoes her Maryland.
Oh, what does Tennessee? She sees what Arkansas.
Oh, where has Oregon? She's gone to Oklahoma.
Oh, what did Massa-chew? She chewed her Connecti-cud.
Oh, how did Flori-die? She died in Missouri.

Here's a second version of the song, which appears to go to a
different tune than the song above.

What did Delaware, boys?
What did Delaware?
What did Delaware, boys?
What did Delaware?
She wore a brand New Jersey,
She wore a brand New Jersey,
She wore a brand New Jersey,
That's what she did wear.

Why did Cali-phone ya,
Why did Cali-phone?
Why did Cali-phone ya,
Was she all alone?
She phoned to say "Hawaii"
She phoned to say ("How-ah-yee")
She phoned to say "Hawaii"
That's why she did phone.

Where has Oregon, boys,
Where has Oregon?
If you want Alaska,
(I'll-ask-a) where she's gone.
She went to pay her Texas
She went to pay her Texas
She went to pay her Texas,
That's where she has gone.

What did Mississip, boys,
What did Mississip?
What did Mississip, boys,
Through her pretty lips?
She sipped a Minna-soda,
She sipped a Minna-soda,
She sipped a Minna-soda,
That's what she did sip.

How did Wiscon-sin, boys?
She stole a New-brass-key,
Too bad that Arkan-saw, boys,
And so did Tenna-see.
It made poor Flori-die, boys,
It made poor Flori-die, you see,
She died in Missouri, boys,
She died in Missouri!

Here's the story of how Singer Sujatha came to know ARR:

Both met through a mutual friend named Ravi. The latter wanted Sujatha to sing for a jingle. Sujatha says that one night, around 12am or 1am, ARR(Dileep at that time) called and asked her if she can sing. Sujatha says that initially, she was hesitant to sing for a jingle since it seems little below standard at that time(she was restarting her career in Malayalam industry right then) and refused. But Rahman requested she come and try. So she went and sang. It was for some paste ad. She enjoyed doing that 30 sec ad very much. And later on, when Rahman was offered Roja, he had her do the hummings for Kaadal Rojaave. Then, that was okayed. Right the next day, she got the chance to sing Puthu Vellai Malai.

[tscii:860f8dbe83]Vijay TVs Iruvar rocks Chennai
Saturday April 29 2006 11:52 IST
It is still sultry at 7.30 p.m. when S P Balasubramaniam (SPB) and Malaysia Vasudevan amble across to the mikes. The huge YMCA Grounds at Royapettah is already reverberating with the noise of thunderous applause. And the guys are yet to sing!

Cant blame the crowd, since this is the first time ever the two shadow voices of Kamal and Rajini are performing together, live in the city!

Of course Madhu Balakrishnan tries his best to set the tone for the evening with Idhu Oru Pon Malai Pozhuthi from the film Nizhalgal. But no, the crowd wants something more than spring song?

Chitra tries to open the door gently for an evening of melody with Kuzhallodhum Kannan from Mella Thirandadu Kadavu. It is melodious but the audience looks like a kid in front of a cotton candy shop and only when the red-kurta-clad Vasu and dark shirted S P B take the stage that whistles pepper the air.

The two have been close pals for forty years, and will continue to remain so, says SPB before the two launch into Ennamma Kannu Soukiyama and it as if the audience is drenched in a downpour of delight.

Chitra has remained the same for 25-odd years, says SPB. When they launch into Andhi Mazhai Pozhigiradhu from the Kamal-Madhavi starrer Raja Parvai follows next.

The scent of jasmine fills the air and yes, it is Manvasanai time. Potti Vacha Malligai Mottu is sung with joyous abandon and it is celebration time.

Kaadhal Vaibhogame by Vasu and Saindhavi leaves everyone in celebration mode.

Listening to Inda Minminikku Kannil Oru Minnal Vandanu and a bank officer sitting behind murmurs, Ah why did Kamal and Rajni age?

It is down memory lane alright with En Kanmani en Kaadhali from Chittu Kuruvi, the Sivakumar song picturised in a bus. The sky lights up as it were when Vasu follows up with Agaya Gangai originally rendered by him in Arukinrundu Arubathu Varai.

The duet with Saindhavi is followed by Podhuvaga en Manasu Thangam and was there a row, which did not erupt into a dance for the Murattu Kalai number?

Madhu Balakrishnan serenades the wind with Kodai Kala Katre. When SPB and Chitra croon Ore Naal Unai Naan from Ilamai Oonjaladuthu the crowd is lost and mesmerized by the melody.

Planned specially for the Vijay TV show is the medley from 14 songs, sung by all the singers, and a collective sigh of anticipation goes up.

Lines from Paattu Paada Vaa, Roja Malare Rajakumari, Partha Gnabagam Illaiyo, Yaar Andha Nilavu, Senthura Poove, Poove Idaya Poove, Kaadhal Oviyam, Ilaya Nila, en Iniya Pon Nilave, Poongatru Thirumbuma, Kannan Vandhu Paadugiran, Nee Partha Parvai and Vellai Pookal are strung together, and the applause rivals any 1000 wallah.

When curtains came down with Ninaithale Inikkum it was just desserts. You can relish the evening all over again. Vijay TV will telecast the Iruvar concert on its channel in May.

Miss it at your own peril.

[tscii:ba04589758]Somes tidbits from SPB:

** Until five years ago, I used to record five songs a day, on all days except second Sundays. I am still recording two songs a day.

** I feel I could have done better. At times, I think there is something missing. Sheer quantity does not mean you have stopped making mistakes. We all do. May be I am more conscious since I am trained in classical music.

** Many times I have felt Oh yes. This song is going to be a hit, but it has turned out to be a damp squib. Ordinary songs have gone on to become huge hits. A gaana song becomes a huge hit but when listened to in isolation it is just another song. That is when you realise that no one knows what will click with the public.

** I feel sorry for on Wednesdays playback singers. Barring a few, many have come and gone without a trace. Often the entire team is young and there is no one to play mentor. M S Viswanathan still points out where you are going wrong, where you could improve. Most of the music directors then were like that. I guess I was lucky.

** I sometimes turn down songs, which are not me. After Sankarabharanam a number of similar songs came my way. But if I feel I am not touching all corners of a raga I cannot sing.

** Everyone knows I give more than my 100 percent but if I some Johnny-come-lately tries to impress his studio audience by riding rough shod over me, merely to satisfy his ego I can be quite cutting.

** On Wednesdays music directors do not strain themselves, and artistes too some sing half a track and move away. There is no timbre, no fragrance as such, which gives identity to a singer. Sad.

** I like Konja Neram (Chandramukhi), Ninaithu Ninaithu Parthu (7G Rainbow Colony), and Vaseegara a lot.

** I have lost maybe half a note in my top note due to my age. But I am still good. I will stop when I know I am only 80 percent fit.

** I have been hosting music talent hunt shows on E TV for 10 years now. I am happy I am able to give back something to this field, which has given me so much. It gives me solace.

SPB must have heard YSR's singing :-)These days the MD's themselves need a mentor, leave alone them mentoring playback singers. He is bang on about the fate of today's playback singers - none of them are being groomed or given further opportunities with the trend being introducing 2 new singers every new album. Sad.

The Talk show " coffe with Suchi" program in Vijay TV by Mirchi FM Suchi, is really geting better and better , 2 weeks ago, she had Crazy Mohan with Urvashi on the program, Crazy mentioned a small little bit of info on " MMKR" 's famous "sundari neeyum" song , the song was originally planned on the type of "Paala kaattu Pakkathule" song, but after IR was narrated about the " kamrajaN" and "Thiruppu"s characterisation ( with perhaps the longest single shot sequence between those 2 characters in the maadi veedu), IR felt the love between those characters were more natural and devinely and came out with this different tune " Sundari neeyum"

Singer Chithra has touched 25 years in film music this year.

There was a small article in Dicinema. She mentions that she recorded her first song for the AIR Thiruv. at the age of 5 for a festival. Her dad frequently did programs for the AIR Thiruv. She recorded her first film song in 1979. The song Chinnakuyil Paadum Paattu was her first big hit in TN. Hence, the nickname 'Chinnakuyil'.

I have logged on to the site but am amazed to find not a scrap of info abt the death of yesteryear screen star and a true tfilm screen legend padmini's death. Why has not been any posting on this and no discussion abt one of the outstanding artistes of tamil films? The current actresses can't hold a candle to the likes of padmini and savitri and her screen combination with Sivaji Ganesan (and off screen too as per her own admission) was legendary. And most importantly she and other yesteryear artistes like Savitri did not use any dubbing artistes and what chaste Tamil she spoke even in interviews despite being a Malayali. And what a beauty she was! Let's salute her memory.

I got hold of the cassette from music world. Side A is impressive. The one that you hear in the trailer is a bharathiyar song

"http://www.pondy.com/bharathiar/2-16thirukadhal.htm". The opening stanzas look similar to hamsanadham. There is also a beautiful number in sudhakaveri (Manamagale from Devar magan).

Audience determines today's music, says K S Chitra

Chennai, April. 26 (PTI): She had never thought that she would become a playback singer but destiny had other plans. Twenty-five years after her song was first featured in a film, Padmashri awardee K S Chitra believes music and lyrics have changed over the years to accommodate changing tastes.

Chitra, whose first recorded song was featured in "Njaan Ekakanu" (I Am Alone), a Malayalam film in 1982, was responding to a question on some songs in Malayalam and other languages featuring a smattering of English words.

"Nothing is static. Look, there has been a change over 25 years. There is a change in our food habits, the way we dress. It is the same in all fields. The audience too has changed, hasn't it ? The present audience wants these kind of songs," she told PTI.

"If there is no audience, then it will fade out. The audience is the determining factor."

Chitra first sang for the Malayalam film "Attahasam" in 1979. But that film got delayed and was released only in 1983. Her first recorded song was a duet with legend Yesudas in "Njaan Ekakanu". "Pranayavastham" turned out to be a hit and there was no looking back for the affable nightingale.

Radhakrishnan Master (Malayalam music director M G Radhakrishnan) introduced her to films. He was the music director for "Njaan Ekakanu".

"How time flies. There were no celebrations. In fact, it was my friends and the media which drew my attention to the fact that I had completed 25 years in music," said Chitra.

Asked to compare between music then and now, she said: "Technology has advanced so much. Earlier, we practised and practised and went in for a rehearsal before going in for the take. Now look at the equipment we have. It is so sophisticated. Now we hardly get to see who is singing with us. Most of the time, it is only at stage shows that we get to see the musicians. Times have changed."

Chitra's reign truly began after her melodious numbers in the Malayalam films "Ente Mmatekutteammakku", "Nookathudoorathu Kannenattu" and "Naksthangal" in the early 1980s became big hits. She had taken over the baton from music veterans like P Sushila and S Janaki, who dominated south Indian music for over two decades.

A clutch of awards followed. She received her first national award for best female playback singer in 1986 for the Tamil film "Sindhu Bhairavi". She won the next year's award too for the Malayalam film "Nakhaksthangal". She garnered more awards for "Vaisali" (1989, Malayalam), "Minsara Kanavu" (1996, Tamil), "Virasaat" (1997, Hindi) and "Autograph" (2004, Tamil).

Chitra has also received the Kerala Government award for best female playback singer 15 times. She holds the rare honour of being the first person to be recognised by all four state governments in south India as best playback singer. In 2004, she won the award for the best female singer from the Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh Governments.

Another one on KSC (Usha Uthup is there as well)...

05-08-2007, 11:45 PM
"I have sung around 15,000 songs, most in Telugu," said Chitra who can speak and read Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. She has also sung in Hindi, Oriya and Bengali.

Chitra did not start out thinking that she was going to be a singer. "I belong to a musical family. My father used to sing. So I was interested in music."

After securing the third position in BA music in the Kerala University examinations, she could not complete her MA as she was frequent travelling to Chennai (then Madras) for singing assignments that "took a toll" on her time.

So Chitra had to decide on choosing a career in singing or continuing to study. She choose the former.

Asked if she felt nervous singing with Yesudas, she said: "Of course, I was tense when I sang with Das-ettan for a duet. I was to do the humming. But tension got the better of me and I botched up thrice.

"Das-ettan never lost his cool and kept encouraging me. I will never forget it."

Even veterans like P Sushila and S Janaki encouraged her when she entered the music industry.

Chitra has also sung Hindi songs but she doesn't seem happy about the experience, with, at times, the albums not mentioning her name in the credits. But she said: "I have no complaints."

She does not become depressed if a song does not do well. "In fact, I listen to all my songs and then I feel I could have done a particular note better."

Whenever she was down in the dumps, she always turned to her parents for support. "Now they are no more. But my husband, daughter and only sister are a source of strength to me."

Her sister sang for five Malayalam films but was "too scared" to take music up as a career. "She lives near my residence. So if there is a problem, she will come running," she said with a smila.

Chitra holds music director M G Radhakrishan in great reverence. Her music 'guru' was Professfor Omanakutty. Radhakrishnan was her brother. "He once took me to the AIR station to sing a devotional note in praise of Lord Krishna. I was only five years old and he carried me to the station," she said.

She believes she has sung more hits "for Ravindran master and Johnson master" in Malayalam.

Referring to the new crop of singers, she said all of them are talented. "They need good songs to prove their mettle," she said.

On the music shows on TV channels to unearth talent, she said: "It is good. Youngsters will have an opportunity to showcase their talent. But my only concern is that they may not be mature enough to handle the pressures of sudden fame and money. Parents should ensure that they are level-headed and have their feet firmly on the ground."

Chitra recently completed an album in Hindi titled "Tribute to Lata Mangeskhar" and is now working on a Hindi ghazal album.

Despite her busy schedule, she always finds time to do something for charity, including a trip to Australia for doing a programme to raise funds for a charitable organisation.

Why don't we get decent private music albums in tamil as in Bollywood?


There were some like How to name it,Minnal and andhi maalai.

Let's keep aside Ilaiyaraja's Devotional albums and instrumentals.

Other albums in tamil have only a few or no songs picturised, with the same old theme of love and its pain. Why don't our people come out of it?

Take "Shakalakka baby" of Mudhalvan for example. It's been picturised as 'shooting a song of album'. The concept of girls going behind boys and boys not being interested in girls is new and Shankar had picturised it in his grand style.

Picturisation makes the difference. Looking at the private albums made in bollywood and their technical quality, a question arises in everyone's mind as, why can't we produce much better ones with all the talented technicians we have?

06-07-2007, 09:10 AM

It happened one day...

Minmini had it made for her, an enchanting voice and a musical career to match. She tells K. Pradeep what it was like at the top and shares the trauma of suddenly losing her voice.

It happened almost 16 years ago, but every time Minimini does a rewind of that day it gives her the gooseflesh. The young singer had just met and sung before Ilayaraja. Gangai Amaran, P. Jayachandran and poet Vaali were among the audience. A recordin g was on in one of the studio floors. Stepping in she was stunned by the huge orchestra hundred violins et al. Turning around she was in for a bigger surprise. Inside the cubicle nearby stood Asha Bhonsle; in flesh and blood, singing one of Ilayarajas compositions. I dont really know what happened to me then. I began crying. Here was a legend that I had heard so much about from my mother. Here she was singing in that lovely voice. And what was I, a rookie singer from a nondescript village in Kerala, doing there? Ilayaraja Sir, sensing my feelings perhaps, introduced me to Ashaji, who blessed me. That same evening I recorded my first Tamil song for Ilayaraja Sir, recounts Minmini of a day which launched her musical career.

Leap to fame

A lot more happened that day. Illayaraja christened her Minmini, as he felt her name Mini somehow did not have a Tamil ring, and asked her to stay back in Chennai. For the next five days Minmini recorded for the maestro. Songs for other music directors followed and then came A. R. Rahmans Chinna china asai (Roja). Minmini was virtually catapulted to national fame. Frankly, I was simply being led ahead. I knew nothing at all. I had no formal training in music. Though I got admission to the RLV Music Academy in Tripunithura, I could not join. By then I was busy as a permanent recording artist in Cochin Arts and Communication, Kochi, and singing in ganamelas. Right from my childhood I simply loved music. I used to adore anyone who could sing. My training was from the different music directors for whom I sang during those early days. Even today I dont think I can identify all the ragas, nor do I search for the beauty of the words in a song. I try to sing as close to what the music directors teach me. Getting into films was something I had not bargained for.

Probably it was her ability to reproduce every note, cadence, exactly blotting paper-like, that impressed Ilayaraja and the others. Maybe this was one reason. It cannot be anything else for when I was asked to sing a kirtan I told him I did not know one. Even now I dont know all that. I have often heard Ilyaraja Sir say that he liked my voice.

It is this innocence and rustic simplicity that comes out in Minminis singing. Her voice brought out her heart, her moral convictions, singing with her life.

Even before this Tamil experience, Minmini had made her debut as playback singer in the Malayalam film Swagatham. In Chennai, Minmini stayed with Jerry Amaldev for the first few days before moving in to the late C. O. Antos house as a paying guest.

For two years Minmini dominated the scene. She sang in seven languages and around 2,000 songs. She won the Tamil Nadu State award for best female singer for her brilliant Roja solo. In Malayalam she was the favourite of music directors like Johnson, Raveendran, S. P. Venkatesh, Bombay Ravi and Mohan Sithara. Some of her songs like Souparnikamritha. (Kizhakkunaram Pakshi), Oonjal Urangi, Neelaraavil (Kudumbasametham), Kakka poocha (Pappayude Swantham Apoos), Paathiraavayi (Vietnam Colony), Swayam varamai (Paithrukam), Vellithinkal (Meleparambil Aanveedu), Aarunee vinmakale perucholamo (Ghazal) and many others turned super hits.

The blow

Then came that debilitating blow. Minmini lost her voice. She was even unable to speak. Those few years were terrible. In fact, I knew it was coming but never thought it would be so serious. I remember how I gradually began losing confidence, cancelling my schedules fearing loss for those who had arranged everything. It was at this time that Rahman called and said he had a song for me. He tried to reassure me that he was not going to lose anything even if I could not sing for the studio was his. I went and found that singing was a far cry for me. All that I managed was to blurt out the words. Rahman recorded everything and it was his brilliance that made it into a song. That one Pachakkili paadum for the film Karuthamma was the last I recorded. After that it was silence. In that silence Minmini found many things.

Minmini got married almost at this time and now had to shoulder new responsibilities. The cause for loss of voice remains a mystery. I believe that it was the will of God. I was forced out of a dream world and look around. This was the time when I began realising so much about life. It is a miracle that Im able to speak and sing now.

Along with her husband Joy Mathew, a popular keyboard player, they have formed a music troupe Sound of Music for which Minmini sings occasionally. She has sung in a couple of albums but has not received any offers from films of late. Trends have changed. These days a singer needs to market oneself , keep calling many people for chances. I dont think Ill be able to do it. Im happy with what life has given me, a magical career where I rubbed shoulders with some of the legends in music, a loving husband and two lovely children, Minmini rounds off.

-From The Hindu

07-16-2007, 02:58 AM
Yes, definitely this incident is something extraordinary. I have sometimes wondered how the playback singing scene would be had her voice been fine. Back in 92-93, one used to hear Minmini a lot. I hope she gets some nice chances. Of course, playback singing is definitely not what it used to be, but...

Vijay Yesudas Sahara in Sivaji is topping the charts

Vijay Yesudas dream to sing for A.R. Rahman finally came true in Sahara. The melodious number in Sivaji has been topping the charts as the Boss continues his reign in cinemas.

A great opportunity for a Rajini fan like me, says Vijay. In fact, I first sang the song in 2005. It was Rajni Sirs birthday and after a voice test, Rahman Sir asked me to sing the whole song. The director Shankar Sir and lyricist Vairamuthu Sir were also there. It was a great experience, recalls Vijay.

After a few weeks he recorded the song under Rahmans baton. Although the song has not found a place in the film, Vijay prefers to look at the brighter side of the picture and says it was the opportunity to sing a Rahman song in a Rajnikant film that has made the experience special for him.

Back in India after a tour of the United States and Canada with Rahmans World Music Tours - Unity of Light and The Third Dimensional Tour, Vijay says touring with the Asian Mozart was a learning experience. But what the ardent Rajni fan wants to share is the thrill of watching Sivajis premier in Dallas. Sayonnara, Naresh Iyer, rapper Blazze, my brother Vishal, my wife, Darshana, and I had to pay $ 20 each to watch the film. Not many Indian stars have that kind of fan-following in the United States.

The last two years have also seen Vijay widen his fan-following in South India. He has notched up a number of hits in Tamil and Telugu and has also started singing in Kannada. His songs in Mozhi, Deepavali and Sandai kozhi have helped him find his own place under the arc lights in tinsel town. In Malayalam also, Vijay has managed to make critics and his fans happy with his songs. His recent song in Sooryan has had VJs reaching for the replay of the song many a time.

It is Ilayaraja Sirs song. So, it will have his signature. Last year, Oru Chirikandaal also did well. That was also by Ilayaraja. He knows who is the right singer for each song, says Vijay.

Does it hurt when Vijays songs are compared with his father, K.J. Yesudas songs?

It used to but now I have learnt to take it in my stride. You have to learn to take the bouquets and the brickbats. But I am happy when people say I sound like my father at times. Although there have been negative remarks about that similarity, I have accepted it.

For instance, in Jamabaavaan, I had to sing a song for Prashanth. The song demanded a mature voice and I noticed that at certain places, I do sound like Appa, admits Vijay.

His song in Sooryan had several music buffs guessing the identity of the singer as it reminded many of Yesudas voice in his heyday.

And what does Yesudas think about his sons songs?

Well Appa is not the effusive kind. He has always been encouraging but he does not go overboard with his praise. I am thankful that he has let me progress at my own pace. I did not taste success overnight. It has been a gradual process and a lot of hard work.

Vijay is all set to release his third album of Ayyappa devotional songs. But he is not complacent.

I plan to improve my skills on the piano as it has become a little rusty after my return to India. Moreover, when I am in Chennai, I make it a point to catch up with my music teacher, Ramamurthy Sir, says the singer. I am looking forward to my songs in Chennai 600028, he adds.

Looks like Vijays career has touched a high following his marriage to Darshana last year.

Yes. I agree, says Vijay. In fact, I also get invited to many premiers now. No one used to invite me when I was a bachelor, laughs Vijay.

இருவீட்டாரிடமும் எதிர்ப்பு இருக்க, இருவரும் திடீர் திருமணம் செய்து கொண்டுள்ளனர். இரு வீட்டிற்கும் அவர்கள் செல்லாமல் தனிக் குடித்தனம் பிடித்து குடியேறி உள்ளனர். இப்போது பாரதிராஜாவின் "பொம்மலாட்டம்', பரத்தின் "நேபாளி', மற்றும் "தரகு', "நெஞ்சைத் தொடு', "இன்பா' போன்ற படங்களில் எழுதி வருகிறார் விவேகா

அவரை நடிக்கக் கேட்டு இதுவரை ஆறு, ஏழு நிறுவனங்கள் முயற்சி செய்துள்ளன. பெரும்பாலும் பட்ஜெட் படங்கள், கதையம்சம் உள்ள படங்கள். ஆனால், பெரிய அளவில் அவர்களது முயற்சிகள் அமையாததால் அவர் நடிக்காமல் இருந்து வந்தார்.

சரியான டீம் அமையும் போது நடிக்கலாம் என்று தள்ளிப் போட்டு வந்தவரை கலைஞர் தொலைக்காட்சிக்காக ஒரு பெரிய கதாபாத்திரத்தில் நடிக்க கேட்டுள்ளனர்.

சினிமா பிரவேசத்தை எதிர்ப்பார்த்தவருக்கு, சின்னத்திரை... அதுவும் கலைஞர் தொலைக்காட்சி என்பதால் மறுக்க முடியாமல் இருக்கிறார்.

ஒரு படத்தில் இசையமைப்பாளர் ஸ்ரீகாந்த் தேவா ஆடிக்கொண்டே பாடினால் அந்தப் படமும் பாடலும் ஹிட் ஆகும் என்ற கோடம்பாக்க சென்டிமென்ட் காரணமாக... அவர் இசையமைக்கும் படங்களில் ஒரு பாடலுக்காவது ஆடிப்பாட வேண்டும் என படத்தின் இயக்குநர்கள் அன்புக் கட்டளையிட்டு வருகிறார்கள்.

தற்போது ஜீவன் நடிக்கும் "கிருஷ்ணலீலை' படத்துக்காக ஒரு பாடலைப் பாடி ஆடத் தயாராகிக் கொண்டிருக்கிறார்.

Slowly but steadily S.P.B.Charan, son of the master singer S.P.Balasubramanium is sharpening his skill as a multitasker.

After meeting success in the role of a producer with the super hit movie Chennai600028', Charan is all geared up for this next venture titled 'Kunguma Poovam Konjum Puravum' under the banner of Capital Film Works banner.

A new heroine comes to Kollywood as a second year dental student Tanya tries to do justice to the role of the heroine in this movie.

The shooting of the film will be triggered off on June 9 at Nagercoil

Rajmohan, an assistant to famous directors like Rajakumaran, S.D.Vijay Milton and A.Venkatesh is the director of the new movie which will be made under the cloud of great expectations due to the super hit status of the producer's previous movie.

Charan came to the industry as a play back singer, made an impact and proved himself. Now he is also known as a successful producer and a decent actor.

Charan, you really shows the spirit of the current youth.
