Pokkisham

Nila - This song in Pokkisham would be my latest release. This is perhaps the third time I am working with Mr Sabesh and Mr Murali. When I had gone to record, Vijay had already sung his portions. Mr Cheran happened to be present at the recording session and this was the first time I was working with him for a song. Blue Elephant had worked on translating the dialogues of Autograph into German previously.
Mr Cheran made it a point to explain this song in the movie and also what kind of an expression he expected in certain lines. It was very nice to get that sort of an insight. The song is like a letter more or less and I am told the story revolves around this theme. It was beautiful singing this song and this was one of the memorable sessions that I have been a part of. Please do give it a listen if you can

I had listened to this song on Kalaignar TV previous Sunday durimg the audio release. Something striked me that it is ur voice. But not really sure also because I couldnt relate that to ur voice. I actually mean i am confused whether it is urs or not because of the fact that the voice sounded completely different..

A good song that u can cherish for ur lifetime.

All the best and keep rocking as always... :)

Hey Chinmayi,

I really enjoyed this song, when it was played with the audio release function in kalaingar tv..

a nice melody from you.. great singing... the way that you have rendered those beautiful tamil lyrics is superb...

really liked every line that started with 'anbaana'...

Keep going...

Hi Chinmayee,
i am VM Karthik Kumar. Just happened to join your blog. I am a terror fan of your singing skills. Have seen you singing in TVs most of the time. I love your ghazal and hindustani styles of singing. Can you please guide me to a good Hindustani/ghazal trainer please? i am in chennai. If you would like to test my voice before referring to the trainer, you are always open to listen my voice at http://www.vmkarthikkumar.blogspot.com
Please help me in this.

Note: i don't have any carnatic or any classical base till now. so trainers should be able to start from zero. sorry for this.

Thanks in advance,
VM Karthik Kumar

I too heard the song in Kalaignar TV during the Audio Launch of the movie. The Lyrics is Awesome with words such as Natrinai, Kurunthogai, etc of Tamil Literature. Icing on the cake is it's pleasantly rendered by u n Vijay Yesudass. Yugabharathi said that it was written first and then the Music Directors gave the tune tune.

Kudos to Cheran for such Lovely songs!!!

Satheesh Kumar said...

Hi Chinmayi I am a great fan of u.I like all of ur songs.I hadn't listened this recent song yet.Must be rocking.I'm sure about that.And keep rocking.......

Your song is good and you have done a good job. What i like about this album is no kuthu songs, no double meaning words, clean melody. Real pokkisham indeed !

Hey Chins,

Loooooooooooonnnnnnggggg time since I have visited your blog. Real apologies for it, but work made me be damn damn busy.

As usual, missing ur voice on AAHA Coffee Club and am seeing a lot of issues you wanted our feedbacks for discussing on this club. Missed them all yaar :(

About your voice, OMG, I saw Yaavarum Nalam yesterday. Enjoyed Neethu Candra for her voice as it ws your's .. OOOOO maaan, the way you talked, your eNergy..... BRILLIANT !!!!

Once dialogue I liked most for your typical talkie style was CABLE TV CUT PANNI THAAN INDA VEETTU LOAN ADAKKANUM NA, PESAAMA VEETTA VITTUDUNGA, CABLE TV POODHUM ...... Was typical ur slang, speed, speaking words continous in a single tone.... OMG !!!

Keep rocking Chins, you will have me as ur fan always in ur rolls !!!

Will be contributing my views for all ur future posts !!!

Thanks,
Abilash M

i know this is off topic. but i am sure you must know the answer. is raginisri in super singer because of politics?

Amazing voice for Aavarampoo song. This song is to you what Chinna chinna Aasai was to Minmini and Netru Illatha Matram was to Sujatha.

Thanks for Everything !!! said...

Nila nee vanam..

Hii Chinmayee.. Happened to listen to this song a week b4 n youtube..

Am very much impressed. wat a combination... d lyrics, music n the song rendition by you n Vijay.. everything s gr8.

From your part.. I was able to relate to the xpression n ur touch given to each word... Natrinai, Thirukkural.. and also for Badava, thiruda etc..

I really enjoyed this song after Avarampoo.. from Poo song.

Sheik said...

I started liking the song even after the first time i listened to it. I guessed the song sounds like the voice of the female lead of the movie. After a few attempts, i found both were of urs.
