First of all thanks for singing this beautiful melo
dy ma.loved it in ur voice n great feel.

I felt the k-track could have been little faster,as
u know the situation in the movie la?The k-track wa
s very slow.wen i listened to the first humming,i th
ought u are going to sing the same song (pathos) in
which ambika thinks of mohan n sing.Here she is in a
happy mood la,dats y i felt like that.

But overall a gud performance.Onlything that vaazhkai yaavum in the first charanam could have
been better.All the best n keep them coming.wen i
was listening to ur per4rmance,i felt dat i was d
riving the car,lol.

You are probably the only singer who consistently sings Janaki’s songs. And for that, my sincerest wishes.

There is nothing really wrong about your rendition. In fact this is one of your best renditions in terms of expressions. Slow Karaoke is not your fault (although u can speed it up using software without pitch shifting). Honestly, when I listen to some of your covers, I have always asked myself what is amiss even though you are singing it all correctly ?

I think I have a partial answer. It is a mix of :

1. Tremolo – tremor in voice
2. Proximity to the mic which sometimes distorts your signal
3. A volume modulation which is sllightly different from the original

But in this rendition 3 does not seem to be an issue. But I did sense a lot of tremolo through out the song. Other than that, there is nothing much to point out. Very nicely sung.

Nothing new….you are a great singer and you keep proving it time and again. It’s your talent that transforms even a track not exactly to your liking into a good production. My best wishes are always with you.
