My sincere dedication to those maestros and
the giants of Tamil Film Industry.

Maruthi said

Srini , lovely song , the lyrics is commanding the flow of the song in this one……the key of succes in this song is power singing srini….slightly pressure in vocals and punch on keywords are most needed in demand……your voice usually has a weightage ….which this song demands but you missed it by big margin…… apart from that couple of sangathis are slightly off……

.this song sounds simple to listener but not the sangathis ,not the pitch, not the singer……but the tone is the most demanding factor ( that traditional cinema tamil tone )…….you have that tone srini…but you missed it.

no issues in singing and timing ……if you are spot on …at the tone you will get everything following it…as everything is embedded into that in this special song……I honestly can admit I will not be able to sing this song for its demand.

No issues maruthi,thanks for the detailed feedback,
much appreciated and my sincere thanks for pointing
out the mistakes too.will definitely takecare of i
t in my future t.m.s renditions.Glad dat u liked m
y singing.


Radhika Nair (away) said

Srini – Have not heard this song at all. Am a big fan of MSV – he has done some brilliant pieces in Mal cinema which each time fills the listener with awe – espec some of his brillaint melodious semi-classical songs. I had absolutely nothing to compare your rendition with – I liked it a lot and 5 !

Pl do listen to my latest
Nee Oru Kaadhal Sangeetham – Tamil cover with Kumar
Phir Se Aayiyo Badra – Namkeen
Shruthiyil Ninnuyarum – Thrishna(Mal)


Harry Chops said

Srini-Due to language constraints, can’t really understand much but whatever I could understand, it was enjoyable.
You may please listen to my first attempt of singing an original composition

Your feedback is requested



Srini S said

dat u both liked it.

Radhika thanks for the 5.

Harry will listen,thanks for the invitation.


Jenefa (inactive) said

Nice pick, Srini Bro! This is among the few of the classic songs, i didn’t miss to hear! I felt your voice suits apt for the song.
You rendition sounds very good to me:)

Jenefa :)


Subbu said

Hi Srini-Nice attempt-The legendary TMS punch was a lil less in this rendition,,,not sure if the scale has been lowered……there is a touch of melancholy in this rendition……which I guess should be totally avoided to get that ‘ganeer Venkala Kural’- IR used to say the AaN kural vanished along with TMS ! Otherwise enjoyed listening to Srini….

Ahhaaa. nice song to cover Srini. The track is also pretty nice with all the chorus and harmonies :P

Neat job by you for the most part. It’s tough to bring TMS effect since he’s really a legend, but I really enjoyed your own take on this one. Infact you have made it your own which is really commendable.

Kudos… and a 5/5!

Uthra said

Nice song pick and suits your voice. Please post more TMS songs. Some more boldness (gambheeram) in your voice would have taken it to the next level, I felt nevertheless enjoyed this song. Nice track too.
Lyrics…. beautiful. Didn’t know it was vaali’s. I would have assumed that it was kannadasan’s if you had not mentioned that. It is a pity that we don’t get many songs with good lyrics these days.


Srini S said

watever u had mentioned is absolutely right uthraji.
yes we dont get many songs with good lyrics nowadays
I too didnt knew dat the lyrics is by vaali sir.sowmyaji gave me the information.I too thought that its kannadasan sir.

Anyways i thankyou for the feedback on my rendition
,really appreciate it.Thanks for those pointers.
Glad dat u liked it.
