EnnuLLil engO Yaengum Geetham

Lyrics & Chords

My sister has been asking me to sing this song ever since I joined Muziboo. Later, Maruthi Nambi sent me the track and requested me to sing it. Recently, my cousin and childhood friend, Shankar, reminded me of the song and got me working with it after all the months of procrastination. So this song is for them all :)

In my opinion, Vani Jayaram’s voice was used up best by Mellisai Mananr, followed by Shankar-Ganesh. For some reason, IR did not work extensively with the singer (when compared with SJ and PS) but has given some rare gems like this one. “EnnuLLil engo” is perhaps the best of VJ-IR combination. It is a heavy theme with strong classical strokes. Hence IR’s choice of Vani is commendable for it is only a voice as hers that could do justice to the highly demanding composition. Based on Raag Madhuvanthi, the song has dark shades of longing and pining for one’s love. The theme of the movie was very controversial in those days and hence we were forbidden from watching it. The song sequence is very disturbing in the context of the story.

There are some valuable lessons on breathcontrol to be learnt from this song. In those days when multiple recordings and cut-and-paste were unheard of, the entire song was done in a single take. If you heard the song, you will understand how daunting a task it must be to deliver this song which would leave the singer gasping for breath quicker than usual. Hence, impeccable planning on the singer’s part is necessary to understand and follow strict breathing patterns and delivery of phrases in a methodical way. That is another reason why I did not want the breaths and gasps in my singing to be edited in this particular recording. It has been a massive learning experience with the amount of planning that went into singing it. I am now confident of singing it live without struggling for breath :)

Again, Vishnu has helped me out with the mixing. Thanks a million, Vishnu, for your untiring work! :)

I hope you will enjoy the song as much as I did. Please do leave your valuable feedback and comments. And thanks for listening! :)

Movie: Rosaappoo Ravikkaikaari
Music: Maestro Ilayaraaja
Originally sung by: Vani Jayaram

Adithi: Lovely song and expressive singing. Nice breath control. Some of the interludes (instrumental) reminded me of thathithom… from azhagan (same raagam I guess)


Maruthi said

I was in marina beach with my son when my phone alarmed about this mail from muziboo Adithi covered “ennullil yengo” ……GNB Kutchery la people used to sit so far away they wont hear it but but they assume what he would have sung and say ahaaaa ooohoooo……I did the exact same sitting near Gandhi statue ( which is very clean today no kaaka yecham ……remember yesterday was the parade )

The discription above brought me a big smile, as I went back to the days you sang “Barso re mega” from Guru which I sequenced…… U were not in greatest of comfort in context of breath control that evening….I was almost listening to you sceptically that you might break at any point …….but you managed it, that was indeed a lesson for me too.From then on I cover most of my songs in single takes and retakes for a mistake.

My uncle (meenas dad) recalled once about IRs greatness on this film composition as he is the production executive in this film……super duper hit then…….

I have covered this song too….but your training comes really handy here…that control in emotion is natural as u dont have to think about anything else as u have prepared well.

Great singing great post I will let my uncle listen to this ,he will come back with more memories which is nice to listen.

Beautifully done Adithi. I felt that the subtlety was tad missing in first pallavi or should I say words were over-pronounced. Charanams were mindblowing… ‘Mogangale’ in second charanam & ‘aanal’ in last pallavi was fab :) Amazing Cover…

1:55 — 2:06 was superb….after that a couple of seconds…it was very evident that the pitch was way too high. the natural sweetness of ur voice is a little subdued at the high registers….but having said that….amazing still at those heights!! very well done.

Loved this rendition. Truly a wonderful and haunting melody from VJ. Who better than you to follow that with this equally good reproduction. Felt a bit of strain at high pitches….but you did manage that well. Such a delight to hear your songs. Vishnu Digital did an awesome job with this mix. Kudos!

Adithi said

Thanks a million folks, for your comments and pointers.

I just wanted to say one thing about the “strain in the high registers”. I believe that for it not to be noticeable, one needs to be gifted with a voice as the legends’ OR the voice needs to be trained constantly OR technical “make-up” to the voice must be applied. I have none of the above and hence my journey in pursuit of perfection will continue. :)

But if you have noticed the original, you will see that Vanimma thins her voice exactly at the high registers when the humming in charanams ends. That was what I was trying to do as well because if sung fullthroated in that place, it wont sound strained BUT will mar the beauty of the song. Also at this pitch, to manage high notes is a huge task. There have been some songs of SJ and KSC where I have wondered if it was necessary for them to have literally screamed at that pitch. That, again, depends on the type of composition and individual perception.

Just my 2 cents! :P

Hi Adithi,

Followed the link (“Similar Music”) from Hamsapriya’s rendition of the same song.

It is very difficult to express about this evergreen song – this is such a favorite of mine that I am at loss for words to explain what makes this song so special :-)

You are right about this movie was off-limits :-) Never watched it.

Amazing, flawless, superb rendition! I don’t know what other superlatives I can add. And the fact that you went through this song in one take and with breath control is unbelievable.

What a privilege to be able to listen to your version of this song!


- My comment is an opinion. Opinions are like wrist watches and I have one. I am not sure the time in my wrist watch is the right one.


Shankar Pro user said

When I was in loss of words to appreciate this rendition, Chandra’s comments comes in handy! Flawless is the word…. That means everything what felt about this rendition while still enjoying this song…. There are a few renditions that I have come across here, which made me close all other windows on the PC and just close my eyes and listen and enjoy…. just that…. This is one such rendition….

Adithi ji, thanks for the treat….
