Modhi Vilayadu

And my association with this movie is that I am the voice of Kajal Aggarwal, the leading lady. This is perhaps the first movie that I dubbed in AVM Sound and Light so by the time a certain camaraderie was established with the technicians it was time to thank-you-very-much-it-was-good-working-with-you. I thought Kajal is perhaps the definition of bubbly and I loved watching the scenes that I was privy to at that time. That said, let me also tell you that it is not necessary that I get to see the entire movie and then start work. That happened with Sillunu Oru Kadhal as it was the first time I was dubbing and Dir. Krishna wanted to me to watch the movie and then start dubbing. A lot of times, we are asked to give a voice test and once the director thinks it is what he wants, then work starts straight away or on a different date. I have heard that people like Savita and Hemamalini, two of the leading dubbing artistes finish an entire movie, sometimes for both heroines in a movie like in 12B (Savita was the voice of Jo and Simran), in just one day.
Most times I get fatigued after prolonged talking so whatever is remaining gets distributed over subsequent days. Sometimes, as a lot of artistes' time needs to be adjusted such sessions might be spread over a week or so.
But one of the best things is before most of the world did, I got to hear the songs of this movie. And let me tell ya the music is super cool. It has the Colonial Cousins' distinct style, and you would know what I am talking about if you were one of those who followed their music like a mad thing, like I did, and love this song Sunita Sarathy has rendered in particular. One of the female singers that I admire. The audio releases this evening.
I know that I am going to be playing this sound track a lot on my show. Have fun listening in.

Great to hear this feedback from you on CC's film music. I happened to watch the interview of the cousins earlier this year in a Tamil TV channel regarding their film-music foray & it sounded terrific. Looking forward to hear their music in its final form.

Regards,
Srivatsan

You are simply awesome in dubbing.. The best, to me, was vaaranam aayiram... Sameera Reddy's magic onscreen was 50% due to chinmayi, let the stylists share the rest of the credit. Touchwood! There is some sophistication, that typically suits a modern, independent, intelligent, well-educated woman some charm and some dunno-what factor in your voice that adds to the appeal.. Great going!!
