Wonderful rendition Gopi. Liked the way you have modulated your voice in many spots to enhance the feel. The sudden slides (naan padichaa etc.) in the charanam are tough in this song and that is one area where you can improve although it did not take anything away from the impact of the song. Enjoyed it very much.

Gopi ….not familiar with tamil songs, but didnt stop me from enjoying this rendition ….you are a very expressive singer….effortless !!! loved it…
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love


Vishak Subramoney said

very nice rendition Gopi….liked it.


Sushanth Shankar said

Hi Gopi!

One of my favs from Mano… I also love the female version sung by KSC… You indeed have done justice to the song! The important thing I liked about ur rendition was tht there was no influence of the original singer in your cover at all! Loved it all the way!

All the very best!

Thinking of rendering this song.Very tough to sing.You have done a great job gopi in your own style.Loved it.You sound like the famous devotional maestro Mr.T.L.Maharajan,son of the great tiruchi loganathan sir and elder brother of Mr.Deepan chakravarathy.Nice unique voice.Keep it up.Paatteduthu naan padicha,soru poda thaai iruka lines,thottil mele lines are so tough.You did a good job.Raja’s ‘podi sangathis’ are too tough.Goodluck man.

Gopi: Liked the fact that you sang in your own voice not trying to imitate the singer. Expressions were good.


Gopi Shanmugam said

@Uthra, Thanks for listening and your comments :)


Surendran Menon said


A very good rendition and feel.Could have avoided the vibratos (the brigaas in certain areas). Would have sounded even better. This is one of my favourite Mano numbers. good effort.


Gopi Shanmugam said

Thanks Surendran… Will look in to it…


Gopi Shanmugam said

Thanks Nivi, Sure will do…
