Kumaran said

This was beautifully rendered by both of you, fantastic work Murali and Sindhu!!!


Rashmi Nair said

Very well sung by both of you, Murali & Sindhu. You have captured all the expressions perfectly. I liked the effects in the vocals too, as you vocals were not immersed in reverb……just a pinch of it. Sounded really good. 5/5 from me.



Uthra said

Murali and Sindhuja, it was awesome! The clarity of words made it even more enjoyable. Murali, the improvisations were very nice esp. for a Hariharan song.


Murali Venkatraman said

Murali – Sindhu !

Just superb ! there is no reason why this version could not reasonably substitute the original !

Murali – KalakkittEppA! Some sangathis especially in the beginning were absolutely delectable. This is the first song I am hearing you getting into a naughty mood. The more jovial singer in you who was never visible has surfaced.

Sindhu – your voice is very nice. Beautiful epxressions and some sangathis from 5:24 – fantastic. Keep it up. Of course the micro sangathis appappo adivaangaradhum irukku (e.g. last maaththuvEyaa).

Straight to the heart and favorites.

You guys were brilliant! Loved it!

Murali – As others have already pointed out, your subtle variations and sangathis were terrific. Perfect expressions also!

Sindhu – What a range!!! U sounded beautiful throughout, especially at the high notes. Superb!

Looking fwd to more….

Arvind R said

Excellent singing Murali … you could explore even more I felt with your voice!. You seem to have a very easy reach with most songs and you can easily venture into your own territory I feel.

Sindhuja … excellent voice and rendition. However, I felt that your word-joining could be better to give a smoother flow. Your notes are OK but very fractional compromises are there bcos of your word-joining I feel. You can certainly improve on this.

Great rendition both of you.


Kumar Srinivasan Pro user said

Excellent singing both of you. Very nice expressions by both of you. Enjoyed the sangathis both of you churned out.



Maruthi said

I have to say this is superb……to my ears there is only very little improvements that I would be asking …….but in studio they wll do all sort of gimmicks to make your vocals stand out……then your singing will sound alot better that this. Where are u guys based on? I need to talk to u both. Will u scrible ur mail Ids please.

Vivek Mahadevan said

Sooper cool rendition murali and sindhuja :)
thoroughly enjoyable….


Subbu said

very nice modulations Murali……Just felt your pronunication makes the listener feel justifiably that you are rendering with a English transcript….this being a folk kinda number the pronunciation needs to be more with a kinda folk lingo….for eg you place the emphasis on kurUKKU in the UKKU part….but you should not close the Kku….leave it more open………Sindhuja has done it nicely too….may be a lil more energy in the same will lift this to a higher plane……

over all a nice attempt-am sorry for this feedback

Straight From the heart, Always


Jeeve Siva said

d female voice in kurukku sivathavale song! amazing, i doubt dat she s a professional singer or gods gift???god bless u both, carry on……all d best!!!!

Nice cover Sindhu & Murali.

Sindhuja, you especially are very good in this song, most of your sangathis are very effortless, and absolutely beautiful voice!! Kuzhambumaiyya @ 5.01/02 ending sangathi could have been done better.

Murali, the brigha @ each siruthavale and karachavale is just awesome. Very nice….

Murali n Sindhuja – I haven’t heard the original but this song by itself sounds so perfect. I think I need no references :) Your classical training is so obvious in your voice and style. One of the best voices I have heard in muziboo. Goes to my fav. 5/5 …. :)


Nanda Nms said

Amazing performance from both the singers. Vocals are a bit bright for my taste, especially the female vocal. Too much high freq. But thats a mix issue, you both are born performers.
