Mizhi Ariyathe - Niram

Lyrics & Chords

Glad to be back here after a while with this beautiful melody from the super hit movie Niram (1999). Originally sung mellifluously by KJY, the song was one of the many hits by Vidyasagar in Malayalam. Lyrics are by late Shri Girish Puthenchery.

The pallavi of this song resembles the Ilayaraja/KJY/SJ hit ‘Oru Raagam Padalodu’ from the movie Aanandha Ragam.

The track quality is not the best and is a bit faster than the original.

This is my humble attempt of this melody.

Looking forward to your feedback.

Kumar…this is a song I really like. First off, this recording is a lot better as compared to the other stuff I’ve heard from you. So good job. Your voice suits this song. My only complaint is that it seems a little rushed in parts. But other than that its very good.

Very nice singing of a very nice song… Your voice sounded too good as al;ways in this song as well…A very soothing rendition…. just felt you were a bit slow in certain sangatis like at ‘sahaana paadi’ and also at some other sangatis which needed to be rendered faster. BTW…did you increase the pitch and speed? When i heard the original song in the youtube I felt it was at a slightly lower pitch and pace…not an issue anyway…

Overall a nice cover …

Kumar – lovely pick. The song was a rage at that time, havent heard this in a long time though. You sounded very good and beautiful effortless singing. Liked especially all the glides. Minor tempo issues, but didnt take away anything. You could have maybe slowed down the track – the hastened pace doesnt give you much room to “feel” the song.

Kumar: Wish the tempo was slow but you sang beautifully. Yes, the pallavi sounds like oru ragam padalodu… (Jayachandran, SJ?)Please sing that one too too.

Kumar Srinivasan,

Not too familiar with Malayalam songs…but still too good a song to hear for the melodious tune and your excellent voice and clarity in singing. Just felt, you rushed a few lines. Apart from that, a perfect rendition and enjoyed thoroughly…

Sorry to be late here, Kumar. Now I have to hand it to you for your unconventional song uploads. No clue of this song, but your singing was superb, and I like all the glides in this song, not to mention the complex lyrics at the last portions!

Sushanth Shankar said

Hi Kumar!

This was a Megahit when the movie released! I have lost count of how many times I have watched this movie… :)

Very good effort by you to be honest… First of all, I must mention tht it is not ur fault, as the track is a failure… Tht is the reason I too kept this song aside, eventhough I love this song…. There were a few places where there was a rush felt because of the inconsistency in the track… This apart I liked your effort! Nice one…

All the very best!
