Uthra! What a song pick! Listening to this song will surely shoot up the spirits and help facing the day with confidence… :) It can bring renaissance in one’s life, if he/she gets to listen to this early in the morning… Experienced it… Those interludes have always helped me have some inexplicable joy… Long live ILayaraaja… :)

Well… That smile you had, while humming does show up in the output… The last ‘Ah’ in both the set of hummings were truncated, I felt… Had you sustained those hums, fading them out, this rendition would have gone up a notch… And I heard some pop noises, which hinted me that this must be a single-pass recording… :) Or guess, you had recorded the pallavi and the charanams separately… Loved the way, you tried to bring that breezy feel by holding yourself back… Some off’s were noticed but I guess, when there is a substantial transition (even attempt to stay different from the previous style) in singing style, off’s tend to crop up… So they can be waived off… :) Am more than happy that you are making sincere efforts to develop an authentic style in singing… 2 or 3 more songs and am sure, you will become a full-fledged light music singer… Good Luck!

P.S: I am sorry that I have been harping on the gripe too much… Hope its taken in the right spirit… :)

If there is affinity, no matter how bitter it could be, one is always contented… If there is no affinity, let love be in your heart…

Breezy song, and a very good cover Uthra. It had a good flow. You had greater control as the song progressed, loved both the charanams… Pallavi, felt there were uncertainities in the landing notes. But Overall, very good flow, you brought out that breezy feel.

Its so difficult to comment a song where I have to rely only on voice, leya and mix but I still enjoyed it. At least La La La made me feel at it is not a sad song….LOL. Nice singing Uthra.

Absolutely beautiful song pick, Uthra….Not your usual style which is what I loved about this cover, so glad to see you experimenting. Felt your landing notes could have a tad smoother, but I know it’s not easy— so :)

Hoping to listen to the rest of your uploads soon….

Fabulous choice of a song!! The smile was evident throughout the rendition and I second Ashok Sai that it indeed is controlled singing, probably influenced by the husky rendition of SJ!! Controlled or open-throated, it doesn’t matter, this song is always a treat to listen and in your voice it indeed is a treat!!


- My comment is an opinion. Opinions are like wrist watches and I have one. I am not sure the time in my wrist watch is the right one.

Uthra……Others above have analyzed lot about this rendition and have given pointers….I enjoyed your singing very much….However, you liked to add one pointer to this is your diction…“VeLai” did not sound phonetically clear to me…. Keep posting more !!

Vinod: Thank you.
Ashok: Thanks for your comment and a good pointer. Appreciate it.
Chandra: Thanks. Controlled singing is a bit of a challenge for me but based on everyone’s comments, I am glad that it wasn’t so bad with this one.
Anbu: Thank you. Will try to do better next time.
