Kannukku Mai Azhagu -Cover by N V Krishnan

Lyrics & Chords

One of my favourite Tamil songs of ARR. Has been wanting to do this since long. Thanks to Sriram Srinivasan for suggesting to sing a Tamil song and also for providing the Karaoke Track…

I have a genuine problem with Tamil diction I have sung it more or less as in the original with respect to diction.

Kindly let me know what you all feel about my rendition….

Movie: Pudhiya Mugham
Music: A R Rehman
Lyrics: Vairamuthu
Singer: Unni Menon
Cover by: N V Krishnan

NVK Sir, enjoyed the song. Could have been a bit softer, the whole song is about extoling beauty of the women/ nature. You started the first Charanam very well (Ilamaikku Nadai Azhagu), the whole song should have had the same feel. The word “Kalvarku” should be pronounced with a “L”. Felt the “Oorvalathil ther Azhagu” could have been better….Overall it was quite pleasing. God bless.

Cheers….Gops

Sushane… Thanks for the appreciation…:)

Harshan… Glad you liked it… Thanks a lot for the nice words… I appreciate…

Gops… Glad to see your feedback here. As I said Tamil diction has been a major problem for me… However I did pronounce the word ‘Kalvarkku’ with ‘L’ . May be it got overshadowed by the effects and music… Thanks for your time and support

Sir,

  • stars !!
    I dont know about the Tamil pronunciation, but its quite similar to the original version.
    I guessed you missed on a little clarity in the recording or maybe while editing?

Your age and voice doesnt match…-:)

Excellent rendition. You have captured all the expressions and modulations. That combined with your shabdagambheeryam, it sounds perfect.

Sriram Srinivasan said

NVK,

I would like to mirror “Gops’ comments”. You started the song well but lost steam towards the end. There were sruthi lapses in the higher notes. In fact, this is one of the perfect songs for your kind of voice texture. Please re-do the song with a touch of romance and this could become one of the best songs in muziboo.

I can’t comment about the diction. …… but ARR’s tune and your rendition – both outstanding!

Meera Manohar said

NVK,

One of the most nostalgic songs of ARR’s in recent years.

Awesome effort. Thought you could have done with a little more feel as some mentioned. One more thing that I noticed was some slight pitching issues at the highest note ( where the lines "oorvalathil per azhagu and similar line in charnam II).

Other than that, think was a nice pick of song to show your voice.

Cheers,

Nice song selection and let me tell you your voice is better than Unni menon’s in my opinion.
But i agree with the others that the expression could have been better.
Some brihas need polishing like “Nelluku naatrazhagu”, “Oorukku aarazhagu” and “Avalukku naan azhagu” …otherwise you were sooper as usual!:)

Murali Venkatraman said

NVK:

It had always been a fantasy for me to know how Jagjit would have sounded in a Tamil song. This rendition of yours comes close to that fantasy. Slight coconut flavor in vaththakkozambu, but a pleasant one nonetheless :)

I did not find any major error in singing. There was a slight offscale singing in oorvalaththil thErazagu. Very nice rendition.

Adithi said

It is so nice to listen to you after a long time, NVK Sir! I sincerely did not see any problems with the diction. As always, your rendition was beautiful. Just was expecting a little more perfection in the podi sangathis….waiting to hear more Tamil songs from you.

NKV sir,

I am a big fan of this song, it was sung by S.P.Balu garu in Telugu. I love the background score in it which is very soothing especially the humming.

I liked your version better than the original, your expressions were very good. As pointed by others there were some minor off scale in higher registers. Rest all is absoultely fine.

Krish Ji,

As usual mindblowing! As I have seen in some comments above, I also felt a soft voice should sound much better. But it doesn’t many any difference in your great singing ability.

Dear Krishnanji,

Hearing to your second song but this time in Tamil-for the first time. Not just awesome but terrific and brilliant singing.You were skeptical about your Tamil diction, but over all it sounded great and soothing to ears. Yes, I agree to Murali. Could sense Mallu accent in some places. Nevertheless, enjoyed it thoroughly :)

Hi Krishnan, feeling so very happy to catch you here after a very very long time! and this is for the first time hearing of your Tamil song! Really wonderful my dear Krish! fantastic job! hey! one more thing! I find your voice becoming more young now ! its very very melodious! (I am hearing you after nearly an year my friend. I am sorry for the delay) About your diction in Tamil, it is ok! but for pronounciation in one place ‘kannathil’ which sounded as ‘kaNNathil’. Anyway nice to write to you my dear friend, after long time! all the best ! I will keep in touch! – K.Balaji
