Vijay Awards 2007

Hands down Rahman sir won the award for best Music Director for Sivaji. The fans were going ballistic every time they showed him on the screen.
I was nominated for the Best Female Playback singer for Sahana, and you guessed right :) I did not win. Neha Bhasin won the award for Paesugiraen. Krish was the Best Male Playback Singer for June Pona. To know who else won, you will have to wait for the ceremony to be telecast on Vijay TV!

Even if you did not win Chinmayi I still think you are a winner.
Sahana is such a beautiful song and I can listen to it all day.

I am so happy that two great singers such as yourself and Krish will be coming to Toronto.

I can't wait to hear you sing live next week! I can confidently say that all the Tamils in Toronto will
fall in love with your singing as soon as you sing Kannathil Muthamittaal.

Best Wishes,

S.

Nopes. Guessed wrong :)I thot u wud win it, cos 'Sahana' is bit complex than 'Paesugiraen', IMO.

Sahana is a great song Chinmayi..hard luck that you did not win an award for it!

nice to know that ARR have won the best MD. Chinmayi, there's a long way to go, missing an award it doesnt matter, maybe you deserve a much more precious awards then Vijay Awards. Anyway, you look good in the function, with your mother I guess....

Hi,

been reading your blog quite regularly. Lemme try to put this without any offense. A general feeling i get out of your blogs is that you fail to appreciate contemporary music available to that of A.R. Rehman's & harris jeyarj's .At the max you only seem to appreciate music of which you are associated with. I at least get a image of you either listening to them or instantly turning to some gazals and hindi music. The point - your blog being so narrow as at least about music. I am only happy about your personal entries that quite reflects some goodness about you and your family. But reiterating my view on the narrowness of your musical views. But still this is your blog...and quite a good one too....cheers....

Rahman is God.

I believe that it should only be about how much you enjoyed singing that song for ARR and how it turned out to be a treat for millions. And the amazing reviews you got for that song.

Trust me, We enjoyed it even more than you'd have!

Awards , true... They do matter. But, in your case, It's just going to be n-1 instead of n, when people evaluate it years from now, when i am gone & you are gone..

But Sahaana will stay :)

Akka did u further cut ur hair ? =O

Chinmayi said...

thanks everyone..
And Naren: I am a singer. A student of music. Thats is about it. No expert. And definitely no critic or I do not think that I have the thing it needs to write about or comment about people's music. And I do not "appreciate music that only I am associated with". I just note it down here. Its easier to talk about recordings and shows I am associated with because there is some first hand experience that I can share. As for the others it will be only as a listener's point of view. About the music I love and the songs I listen to, I speak on my show on Radio. I sing, but I have never mentioned that this blog is about music. My mom blogs on Music. There are others who do. As for this one, its just a public diary about me that I might stop writing sooner or later. Its what I go through on an everyday basis, and even that a lot of it I eschew and don't pen it down here. Hope that clarifies.
sheetal: nope :)

RP said...

anyways, i enjoyed your words of fight. ;-)

directorvinod said...

Hi Chinmayi Akka,im Vinod from Malaysia.

Although you were nominated but you
did not win the award,you are still one of the best playback singers of recent times.Sahana was really fantastic and keep up the good work.

Best of luck and hope you win more awards in the future.

Shifana said...

Chinmayi said...

anonymous: you can edit that comment and send it again..i will publish that.. please do not use my blog to criticize other singers in the industry.. and of course I don't think I am great, if that appeases you.

varsha said...

rathish said...

Hi Chinmayi,

It is very sad that u didnt got the award.. I am damn sure Sahan is the best song of the year 2007 and there are lot of proofs for that it stood No1 in all the TV channels in Annual Top ten songs. Who can forget the song u have sung so marvellously.. i like it very much than u wud do...esplly the aalabh at the end..

If u didnt get the award too .. its we ur fans award u the same.

Hope sumthign better awaits for u...

and moreover one thing chinmayi i heard that u ve got national award fo r kannthil muthamittal is it true? i didnt knwo abt this

Anuradha said...

Hi Chinmayi,

Saw the awards function and also noticed the way u cheered when ARR received the award. :-)

'Sahana' is an awesome song which deserves an award, if 'Pesugiren' was not there in the list.

I am a fan of ur 'Oru deivam thandha poove(KMI)' and 'Naan mutham thinbaval(GURU)' ; but I forget the world when I listen to 'Pesugiren'. Her(Neha Basin) pronunciation in the song (Tamil words) is awesome.

Neha Bhasin.
