Pottu Vaitha Mugamo - Sumathi En Sundhari Cover by Raja and Adithi

Lyrics & Chords

What a song by the singing legend SPB for the acting legend Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan. Apparently, this was the 1st song that SPB sang for Sivaji. I would like to thank Adithi for singing the la la part, which adds the beauty to this song. Thank you Adithi for your help in singing the female part as well as mixing this song.

Please provide your feedback/suggestions.

Very well done…expressive singing…Adithi lalala is very well done…(voice modulation is good) Track is a film style cut. Now nitpicks…not many… sangathis should be better and clear… some places you sing it simple… liked it…

@Gopi, Thanks for your comments and feedback. In fact, I was going to include the dialogs right before this song that goes like “Avan avaLai aNaikka avan avaLai aNaikka” with that la la la chorus :))

an amazing SPB song….but this one was not upto ur usual standards i feel. a difficult song to cover……good attempt. a little more practice needed for this.

Adithi — very nice.


Raja Mani said

Vishak, Thanks for your comments and feedback. It is indeed a very difficult song. The range and the sangathis in this song are too much to handle :)) I’ll post a better version soon.

Raja Mani said

Thanks Meera for the appreciation. I recorded this in one stretch 10 times and picked the one that sounded the best (at least to me) and it looks like I have to sing 10 more times, which I’ll do because I love this song so much. When SPB sir sang for MGR and Sivaji, he tried to match up with TMS which he changed at a later stage. For e.g., you can see how he sang KAlam MARalam in VAzhkkai for Sivaji and he sounded more like SPB :)) When I mentioned pottu vaitha mugamO and compared that with KAlam MARalAm to SPB sir this time, thalaivar was smiling and appreciated the analysis.

Another awesome pick!!! I still remember SPB reminiscing his experience with Nadigar Thilagam in a TV interview that Sivaji wanted him to sing this in his own style that he would manage giving expressions accordingly… You could very well notice that in the video… :-) Sangathis need precision and flow which u can easily bring intact… :-) And your single-take recordings are to be lauded with applause… Keep up the good work…
Thanks & Regards,

We seal our fate with the choices we make…


Raja Mani said

Thanks Raj for sharing this information. I remember that interview. In spite of Sivaji telling him to sing in his own way, SPB chose to sing like Sivaji :)) Thank you for your appreciation of my single take recordings.

Sukumar R ( far away ) said

that was very ‘kacha’ voice song from SPB…he did few good & memorable songs like aval oru navarasa…iyarkai ennum…ayiram nilave…

this is good song too… with difficult sanghathis…appreciate your effort to cover this song…

since it is single take recording i can understand the difficulty in bringing in the required expressions…

well done raja mani…avargale… enga oor karar neenga epdi vittu kudukka mudium…

Thanks for taking time to listen to this rendition and for the appreciation Sukumar. It is a difficult song to sing in single take recording. Oru take-la pallavi nallA irukkum, charanams sila lines nallA irukkum. appadiyE piece meal mAdhiri copy paste paNNi mixing paNNRadhula enakku udanpAdillai.

Good pick Raja. Nice singing. Enjoyed your expression and that extra kurumbu while singing, that is what SPB did in this song and the great Shiviji, portrayed in this song. Enjoyed.

Aditi, you are very much present in this song. Very well done.
