Lyrics & Chords

Hi friends,

Here is a solo again from me :) Yet another Ilaiyaraja melody, Puthum Pudhu Kaalai from the movie Alaigal oiyvathillai. This song was part of the audio release but was not featured in the movie. The song was made popular by S.Janaki’s golden voice !!

I was thinking about doing a solo and Theagu anna suggested this song, and provided me with the k-track for it as well. He has given me a lot of support and encouragement always and I thank him for taking the time and effort to mix this song for me ! Thanks very much anna ! :) And thank u very much Raj for your timely help while uploading :)

Song: Putham Puthu Kaalai
Movie: Alaigal Oiyvadhillai
Music Director: Ilayaraja
Original Singer: S Janaki
Cover version: Anu Anand
Mixing and mastering : Theagu Anna

I hope you all like this cover version of mine . Looking forward to your feedback :)

Hi Dear Anu sis,

First I would like to thank you for choosing this wonderful song of mine in Isaignani;s composition:)…One of the beautiful song sung by most favorite singer “Janaki amma”:)

To be frank…you have sung this song very beautifully and the modulations were awesome! …You have captured the tune well!…Indha song ketale nam manathiruku oru amaithi kidaikum…andha alaviruku ilayaraja ayya arumaya isai amaichirupar:)

Sad thing is that this song has not featured in the film. Nice film too!…You know onething this song is in my hit list:P…Koodiya seekiram naan indha paata kolapandradha neenga elarum ketkalam…lolz:P

Nice mixing by theagu anna!…Anna ipo elam romba busya irukar….pattuu kooda avalova upload panamtengrar…but you are lucky anu sis…anna freeya irundhadhale u got this track done by him soon:)

I can see your hardwork towards music:)…I like that too…So this song goes directly into my favorites:)…Expecting more uploads from you like this song. Keep it up…tc

Thanks & Regards
Kameshwaran Sevugan
Music = My Life, Hope it is the same for you too:)

We often tend to miss out many things which mother nature has bestowed upon us… Rather we keep grumbling nature and seek solutions from mankind, for any mortal trouble… And we fail to enjoy those readily available natural contentments… One among those happens to be an early-morning walk… :) When an artiste seeks creative ideas, he prefers going for an early morning walk… I have read this in the biographies of great artistes and icons… It is said, angels whisper those ideas onto the ears of those who have saunter in the mornings… Best living example is our Kaviarasu Vairamuthu… :) I inked these words as I feel like walking along a hill-top on a clouded morning whenever I listen to this song…

Anu!!! Sabaash for the song pick… Another song which flashes in my mind this very moment is ‘kaalai thendral’ from uyarntha uLLam… But that was by P.Susila… And couldn’t refrain from saying that your voice resembles 2 of the established voices of Muziboo at few places… A valiant attempt, in deed to have attempted this number which requires huskiness, sweetness, expressions, smile in tandem… You have done it mostly… Your sore throat is pretty radiant at few places… But I thoroughly enjoyed the flow with which you drove this song… Swayed my head for n times and listened to this cover for more than 10 times… :) ‘Vaasam’ could be better and huskier… Second charanam was way better than the first time… Huskiness is what went missing… towards the end, ‘ennaaLum aanandham’ could have had clear details… Having quibbled, this happens to be the best cover of this song, I have ever listened to hitherto… Kudos Anu!!! Nee vaazhga!!! :)

Ah……Finally visited your space after a long time….What a refreshing evergreen melody to hear to this song…in the morning (ironically)….

Nice and sweet voice to hear in this tune from one other than Janaki Amma. Brilliantly done and I enjoyed it a lot in your voice !! Just a small point struck….“Suga Raagam” words could have sung with a husky voice…. Also, the original voice was heard in the background throughout….Endingla, “Ennalum Aanandam” was off-pitch. Points are in my humble opinion only….

If you need some vocal cuts, I could try out before you decide to render.

Keep up the good work sister !!

Chanceh Illai, I’m revelled at your rendition of this song. One of my all time favorites, and deserves scores of applauds for the one & only IR.

Your voice was too lovely, be it texture as well as tonal quality. Loved this rendition in your voice.

Mixing by Theagu’na deserves a mention here – the panning was good.

Overall, a relishable rendition right at the break of the day!!!

Hi Anu,
I’m listening to you for the first time. I realize that I’m going to be a die-hard fan of your singing. I’m motivated to listen to all the songs that you have sung. The idea of D.Theagaraj to make you sing along side Janaki Amma at the back has added beautiful colors to the whole performance. Dual voice (perfectly synchronized by you) is beautiful to listen and experience. Pull arichiduchu. Kannla thanni….
Thank you
