Kangal Irandal - Cover by Nithya Bayya & Unnikrishnan

Lyrics & Chords

Unni and I have been planning on a duet for a long time now and we thought we will atleast get things started off with a song.

We both liked Kangal Irandaal but havent been able to find a good track for this song so please excuse the quality… After multiple trials on the mixing by Unni, here it is :)

Do excuse any diction issues…



Harshan Nambiar Pro user said

Followed AJ here…have heard many covers of this song before. Unni for some reason, your voice sounded a little different in this one, lacked the normal smoothness …could be a mixing related issue….

Nitya ….very nice voice you have…nice expressions too….the highest note was a bit flat.

Agree to AJ’s pointers on the mix, the effects are not kept uniform….overall LIKED it.

Aye dil hai Mushkil

Pukarta chala hoon mai

Good Singing Unni. But as Rahul (AJ) has pointed out – most of the high notes were sung flat. It would sound great if you could please work on this. And just like harshan ji has referred to, I couldnt really enjoy the song dear – there was something lacking maybe feel?

And Nithya, you’ve done an awesome job. In your portions too, the opening lines could have deserved more attention – like ‘Thiraigal Andaadha….’ – I was hearing something like flat.

I know actually how difficult it is to sing this song and I believe you’d take my comments on a positive note.

On the whole a well attempted cover of the original version.

Until Next time :)
Luv & Cheers!

Both have done a gr8 job.
But there are some issues.

KB !
You have done a gr8 job with good feel and expressions. You tuned well with the song.

Nithya !
Beautiful voice dear…….but,
You could have avoided those extra sangathies here and there.
But you have done a good job too. :)

Nice rendition guys.

Very expressive and lovely singing….!!!Nithya and unni!

I liked you guys version


Meera Krishnan said

nithya and unni,
nice rendition….good feel/expression…some echo could be heard along with the song esp. when nithya sings…(some recording probs???)…barring that a nice attempt by both of you…second charanam was simply superb….all d best…


Arvind R said

Agree with Harry above about over compression in Unni’s voice … kinda squashed too much … even your breath comes through like an arrow shot! :-). Mind you it’s kinda cool but not in sync with Nithya’s voice. I think your singing was ok and did not pick up anything too obvious. Would have preferred a more natural vocal output though.

Nithya … nice voice but unfortunately a bit weak and flat in places, losing strong continuity that the song demands. Good attempt for you though. Keep it up!.

Kudos to both … it’s a rough gem and enjoyed the composition which is a good one.

Very nice pick, guys! :)

Lovvvveed your parts. Reethigowla is a very romantic raagam and your voice suits it to the T. Excellent feel! :)

Very good singing. Liked the extra sangathis, especially “kadavulai pol”! But occasional offnotes and flats which I haven’t seen in your previous renditions. Innum konjam feel kuduthaa superaa irukkum :)


Rinu Srinivasan said

GREAT work!
Liked it…


Meena (on & off from muziboo) said

just echoing Adithi’s comments….Apart from that a good attempt…Keep singing :).


Vishak Subramoney said

Nithya — voice needs to be more loud and open. some of the high notes could have been reached better.

Unni — very nice. do take care of slight diction issues when u sing in Tamizh.


Tara Balakrishnan said

Great job Unni and Nithya….loved it.

In the mix, Nithya’s voice has better clarity than Unni….just an observation. This is good….


Rekha swaminathan (on and off...) said

Good job! :)
I liked your voice in this Nithya…soft singing instead of your normal bold voice…
Unni – small diction issues, but nothing beyond the good singing… :)

felt energy level was low….maybe it was due to the track….but overall nice.


Rajeev Onv(away on a long break) said

Nithya, good choice and well sung by both of you. You were flat in a few patches, would be better if you can touch them up. Excellent voice quality-Unni and yourself. Enjoyed the song very much.


Uthra said

Beautiful song pick! Enjoyed it in your voices.

Unni – Suits your voice very well. Nice improvement in diction.

Nithya: Sweet voice!

Hi Unni and Nithya,
Very impressive to say the least.
Unni’s words have clarity and Nithya perhaps needs a small bit of efforts here and there (wrt clarity), but overall, it is very captivating.
