Endhiran

Kilimanjaro, a duet with Javed Ali. I was quite tickled and was giggling about the lyrics. Really fun lyrics I thought. Javed Ali is a soft spoken, sweet person. And really loved his style of rendition. The session was super fun through and through. From the time I stepped in to Rahman sir's studio and recorded this song I have been praying for it. 
Its hard to describe how do I spell the "tcht tcht" in the song? Well I guess you ll know what I am trying to write about once you hear it. And that I think is my favourite portion in the song. 
I presume this is the song that was shot in Peru / Machu Pichu with all the fancy headgear. And Superstar's style - Thalaivaaaaaa!!!! I cannot wait to watch the film and scream all through the FDFS. 
I think the first ever FDFS of a film in my life was Shivaji. Cannot forget that day. Whatte-n experience. I couldn't hear a single dialogue. But that is not the point is it? All we can do is cheer and scream every time Thalaivar came on screen.
And now to wait for the film... 
Please do buy the original CDs.

CHINMAYI THE ROCKER!

vimmuuu said...

I just bought the Enthiran album an hour back. Listening to Kilimanjaro as I am typing this !!! you sound awesomely different !!! never knew it was you until I checked the credits !! Take a bow Chinmayee !

My pick of the album however is Pudiya Manida; but the next one is definitely Kilimanjaro !! ARR rocks !!!

(although a regular of your blog, this is my second comment here; once commented when you wanted someone to sing with you on stage)

saya said...

hey,
chinmaye,as u always say that.elle pughazhum rahmanukae.i pray to god that u will reach for the sky.i saw ur program manathodu mano.that was superb. as a friend i can tell u something in that program ur hair style was not that much good so please don't try that hereafter.apart ur the only best voice to me.

Divya said...

I like your voice a lot in this song. It sounds very different from how it did in tere bina or anbil avan or the one with mithoon. Very peppy album and I'm sure the movie's gonna be a biiig hit too :)

Anonymous said...

Quite easily the 'fresh sounding' piece in the album. Punky beats, and your voice frequency modulation Awwwsome..

Anonymous said...

@ others the opening bit and various others 'goat like' sounds in the SPB song are by Rehaina.

BriceColdPlayOnwards said...

I heard Kilimanjo and, as per the general consensus, your voice was completely alien to me. Versatility is stellar and all, but this is just getting out of hand. Tonight I got a call on the phone and when they said "hello," I squealed, "CHINMAYI?!?!?!" It turned out it was just my mother. Now I'm auditorily paranoid. UGH! :)

I'm really not sure how the picturization and/or plot is going to reconcile a song called Kilimanjo being sung in the Andes with clicking noises that are putatively South African, and headdresses from the future?! Alas, I think I'm missing the point, aren't I? :)

Keep setting that finish line further! Great job! :)

Vishnu said...

Good one, yet another round of experimentation. Kudos to you and Rahman.

Soumya said...

the song is as such very catchy and funny. it has the feel-good-to-hear factor in it. well sung by you and javed. :)

Manojh said...

In the Kilimanjaro song, your sangadhi in the first charanam, "...enna vandhu aara vaithu...." blew me away. Are sangadhis like these suggested by ARR or does it come as a way of your own improvisation? Because Javed Ali doesn't do that in the second charanam.

saya said...

hai,
this is saya.iam a diehard fan of you.you looked so beautifull in sangeetha mahayudham.keep on rocking like this.

saya said...

hai chinmaye you r blessed with a beautifulll voice.i pray to god that you will reach for the sky.

Sethu said...

Hi Chinmayi, The song was brilliant and your voice was awesome..... It was different and naughty !! Certainly an instant flick !! Kudos and all the best !!

SAK said...

venkat said...

hi chinmayi... i was mesmerized by Kilimanjaro song...wow..what a performance? earlier, i saw some clips in youtube..someone shared this shooting from brazil, if i remember correctly...From that day, i was eagerly awaiting to hear the song...I heard this and its great to see that you sung this.. Hope you gave background voice for Trisha in VTV.. whenever i see her speaking..it's like i see you speaking..i have seen you in Sathyam theatre..but you didn't see me... Ofcourse, yes, i am just a normal citizen, but you are all celebrities, so it's hard for you to remember/recognize us.. he he he..:) I am in US now..take care..and contribute to more songs.. ur fan from US... --venkat

Sankar said...

Kilimanjaaro is really a wonderful song with catchy tune...Another hit from ARR - Chinmayi combination....You rock chinmayi...

Harihara Kumar said...

Chinmayi,

Amjath said...

This kind of Album is new to tamil but its really grt.....Kilimanjaro will rule in chart for sometime as like sahana.....keep rockinggggggg

Hari said...

The song's come out really well Chinmayi.. :) :D

Never thought you would be able to sing such an awesome eroticism filled song. Your voice does sound a bit young. Anything special that you are eating.. :)

Once again, congrats.. I know accolades are pouring in. Yet another feather in your cap.

salo said...

srk said...

Hi Chinmayee,
The song is very good. Its good. Yep with Thalaivar's inimitable style it should be great. Nice rendering. Refreshering song.Good work.
Btw.. i was reminded of "Azagina Azagave Askava" tune a bit from U20E18 may be at the begining!

Hi Chinmayi,

Enjoyed all the songs in Endhiran!! Kilimanjaro song came out well!! Congrats and all the best for the success!!

I am eagerly waiting to see the movie here!! One good thing is we can get FDFS ticket without much hassel unlike in Chennai/TNadu.. But i'm sure we'll miss the palabhishekam/aarati/cutouts :-)

Cheers
Srini,Sharjah

nandhini said...

The Hindu writes this:

"Kilimanjaro, the penultimate number in the album, is quintessentially Rahman. A playful and quirky song with an infectious refrain and a thumping beat, it features some lively vocals by Javed Ali and Chinmayi. It has tribal-sounding interludes, but manages to be super-modern at the same time, and grows on you with every listen. Quite likely to become one of the immediately popular numbers from the album. "

kanch said...

Chinmayee,
I really admire you. I think you are truely awesome. Whenever your autobiography comes out I will be one of the first in line to get it.
keep up the awesome work.
I wish i could sing but I can't. But i am happy I have enough music sense to enjoy good music.
good luck with everything you do :)

Krithika said...

Heard it in Raaga.com. I will surely buy the CD. Looks like your Legend's blueeyed girl. You get his best songs ( Kilimanjaro) is uniquely different apart from Irumbile Oru Idaiyam ( ARR's unique singing) and SPB ( another Imayam) opening Salvo for THALIAVAAR. Waiting for the movie to be released.

Deepan said...

I already got an original CD!!!!

கோவை ஆவி said...

Wonderful song!! Keep it up!!

rajesh said...

Hi chinmayi..

I liked the Album Entiran...

Not typical Rehaman sir Style, but really different...

And Kilmanjaro is really different...really liked the way it has comeout..

Looking for more of your numbers..

Thanoojaa said...

just love the variation of ur voice.. am sure its gonna be a big hit..

Karthi said...

Hi Chinmayee..

As with all ARR compositions, we can get glued on listening to his tracks repeatedly. 'Kilimanjoro' is awesome, this is the song i am humming these days.
You are a versatile singer Chinmayee. It is different... and very good.
Thanks for the superb song. Also to Javed Ali.

Great stuff.

Best Regards,

R.Karthiga

Shuffle Head said...

Wat a song!!! And what a rendition.. beautiful. I really loved it the way you sung it.. esp.. the kinni koli..
I reaaly hope Rahman sir gives you more challenging songs like this more and you collaborate more with him.

ப்ரசன்னா said...

Kilimajaro is my fav track of the album....u sound fab..i luv ur "Ennikonee"..wwwwwwwowwwwwwwwwww

Shwetha said...

I didnt like the Kilimanjaro song, much as I reeeally tried to like it..it didnt quite fit with your voice, right to the husky ending note. Something was off, the tune/ rendition/ vocals, couldnt quite figure. But I guess it will be a hit nevertheless since it The Enthiran!, which is good :)

I wish you had sung the very sweet Kaathal anukkal instead.

Btw, Im SO hooked on to maadhno, hope you win a filmfare best vocal for it this year!

KashRika said...

Dear Chinmayi,

I'm from Malaysia and one of your fan i would say. Am not a frequent blogger and seriously i never had the thought that i will bump into your blog and seriously never ever had the thought that a CELEB like you will have a time to blog atleast. Perhaps it may my own perception or it could be rather true also. But am pretty happy that you taking your precious time to update and share your activities and opinion with others. May this be a platform for me to atleast communicate with you and am just truly excited once saw your replies for some of your fans comments. Hope i too get the replies from you.

1st i would congratulate you on your awesome work in ENDHIRAN's Kilimanjaro. The song simply superb and you've done a great job. Basically am a die hard fan of AR.Rahman and i was actually growing up by listening to his musics. Such a Man he is, be it where he stands, he remains as humble as he can and i just cried when he said " ELLAM PUGAZHUM IRAIVANUKKE" during the academic award function. It shows how much he has dedicated himself to the great lord and also not forgotten his loving mother. He is my IDOL.

Dear Chinmayi, am glad that your working along with him and giving us lot's of mindblowing songs. May your journey in this creative world continues until the last breath of yours. We are here, to support your musics. As i do believe music is the most powerful healing tool for any kind of sickness. May god bless you and continue your journey. Please convey my best wishes to SHRI AR.RAHMAN!!!

Wish you all the Best!


With Lots of Love,
Chantrika Naidu,
Malaysia.

Prasanna said...

Hay Chinmayi,
My fave song in Endhiran is Kilimanjaro and mainly due to your singing... its a very good listen and I liked the way you dominated the song particularly in the 2nd paragraph... it was pacy and unique. Well done and thanks.

Prasanna.

Well done Chinmayi!!

NOTE: Listened to the songs in the Original CD... :)

Ash said...

got the album, sounding good as always chinmayi.props

Rajesh said...

Chinmayi, I've always wondered how it would be to personally know a famous genious - someone like ARR or Kamal Hassan. And I'm envious of normal people like you who live in the midst of such celebrity geniouses - because you get to discuss with them, ask a million question that I'd die to get a chance to. How do they make those tunes. What's the thought process behind using a certain instrument/sequence/sound. Do you get to do all that?
On another note: I feel the amazing music ARR has again come up with has been marred by some of the lyrics. Ofcourse, it's just my opinion, but I wish all songs had good lyrics like Puthiya Manidha. Surprised you like the random (read ridiculous) lyrics of Kilimanjaro. But amazing vocals, really. You've done some great modulation there.

ramlakmi said...

Hi Sis, Very different tone of yours. Well I am not so definite about the musical terms, I just love the song. It is definitely a milestone in your singing career. And I love the way you host Sangeetha Maha Yutham..

Kums K said...

IamRajthilak said...

Chinmayi, How u did this "tcht tcht"?

Have u recorded it once and was played multiple times in the song or u did it repeatedly whenever needed? Whenever we try to do the same, we mostly fail. Very hard and very good. Very very good.
