Mandara Cheppundo - Cover By N V Krishnan and Aditi

Lyrics & Chords

Here I come with a Malayalam number I have sung with Aditi. This is the first song I am singing with this extremely taleted singer who is currently based in the USA.

This song originally sung by MG Sreekumar and K S Chitra is from the movie “Dasaradham” and is composed by Johnson.

Hope you all will listen to this attempt of ours and give your views.

Song : Mandara Cheppundo
Movie : Dasaradham
Music : Johnson
Lyrics: Poovachal Khader
Singers : M G Sreekumar and K S Chithra
Cover by : N V Krishnan and Aditi



Rupesh Kumar said

Great singing by both of you Krishnan sir. Enjoyed. Feels like it is original…



Nancy Menon said

The male singer has sung his part well, but there is not much clarity in the female singer’s part.
Aur practice karo ji.


Venki said

Very nice rendition by both of you NVK and Aditi!
Hadn’t heard this song before but the tune ‘latched on’ almost immediately.

If you get a chance, please check out my latest. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Meera Krishnan said

NVK sir,

another beautiful rendition from you sir. I also felt like this one was farrrrrrrrrr better than the ORIGINAL male version:)…gr8 work sir….adithi…her starting (in the pallavi part) was a bit vague.otherwise she also has sung beautifully.


Santosh george wilson said

This is great singing by both of you!! One of the best by NVK sir from what I heard! What has reall appealed was the taste of your voice in my ears! : ) Some pathos somewhere :)…

Aditi’s singing was great, but the clarity of recording was not upto NVK’s…

5/5 from me!


Sushanth Shankar said

NVK Sir!

Oru nostalgic feel aanu ee paattinu… :) I think tht was the magic tht stood out in most of the songs done by Johnson sir!

You have done a brilliant job I should admit sir!! Simply loved ur voice as always and your singing was really good!! Just felt tht you could have done the beginning of the pallavi a little throughout the song…. When you sang the “Mandaara Cheppundo… Maanikya Kallundo” throughout the song, it sounded as though u were gasping for breathe… That is the only thing I felt could have been done better with a smooth flow… Apart from tht you did a splendid job sir!

Aditi – You have done a good job too… Just felt the high pitch in the anupallavi did not come out well… I could feel a slight strain in the voice when singing tht portion… Also the words “Ullil aamodha” in the thundupallavi and the end were being sung differently… The notes for “aamodha” here were somethg else… If u carefully listen, you can make out the difference in the notes that you sing and NVK sir sings at the end, when both of u sing the line together… That sounded a bit off… Apart from these good singing by you too!

On the whole loved the song and lovely pick sir! Goes to my favs! :)

All the very best!

- Sushanth


Sushanth Shankar said

And sorry… Forgot… 5/5 from me too!! :)

NVk sir & Aditi – lovely choice of song. A very enjoyable cover and a special thanks for bringing this song here.

NVK sir – you were very expressive and brought in the right mood.

Aditi – the lack of clarity of your vocals in the mix took away a bit and you sounded a little tentative at certain spots, but kudos on the next Mal cover. Thoooovalundo espec sounded very very sweet. Assuming that you do not have Mal roots, your diction was pretty good since we make it as tough as it can get :-). Looking forward to more Mal covers from you.

Manoj Babu said

NVK Sir, once again, superb ,, great singing,.expression was so nice,thank you…


Adithi said

Very nice to see another Aditi on Muziboo(but without a “T”).

Very good work Aditi! Hope to hear more of your songs here. Agree about the lack of clarity in your voice but that could also have been due to the recording.

Endu parayaan!!!! So glad that you are back and that too with this beautiful song. We are not going to allow you to take breaks any more! Keep singing! :)

Krishji…… Malayalam paatu padi irukela :)

Always happy to visit your posts. You are an exceptional singer. Yes, i do find Aditi to be a bit low at the start of the song, she will learn it and nothing seriously negative about it:) :)
Liked your duet and good singing.

thanks a lot for sharing.

MUSIC is the language of the soul!


Indu said

Twoof my favourite singers…. that was a treat! Thoroughly enjoyed the song. Yes, the high pitch start of the pallavi did stretch your vocal chords to it’s limit huh …Aditi :-)) Ennaalum assalaayirunnu tto… aduthathu super hit aavum ennayiraam.

NVK….century after century in these innings! What more can I add?

5/5 :-)))


Arun M said

5 star rating from me.Wonderful rendition!


Harshan Nambiar Pro user said

NVK sir ….beautiful sung ….as Santosh said that one of your best in terms of recording…loved your voice and singing.

Adithi ….you have sung this very well….however I too felt lack of clarity. Also at high notes ….you were pretty shrill so couldnt make out the words.

Overall I liked this duet ….5/5 from me.

Very nicely done NVK sir ! Enjoyed it !



Arvind R said

Listening to you after a long time NVK … enjoyed your voice in this one … nicely done and the boldness and experssion in your voice is much better now than your early songs I must say!. In some places you could still improve with crisper harquats … however you have managed to get rid of most of your trembly harquats of the past. The tempo of this song should be faster in my opinion but enjoyed this v.much. Awesome work.

Adithi … I can see that your singing talent is classy … you are a natural from what I hear … the only correction for you is please sing louder and bolder … the rest is all there pretty much. Very well done.

Nice one guys and in fact would say this is competes with the original song very well. I was not impressed with MGS’s rendition in the original that much to be honest … he should have done much better!. Great going to you two!.

You both did amazing effort and as far as I concerned its really precious!
