vilicho neeyenne vilicho (Sakudumbam Syamala) - Cover

Lyrics & Chords

dear Friends, i’m back again with another song cover after a short break, as i was taking some rest due to a heavy throat infection. i had lost my voice for few weeks. (thanks to God, i’m able to sing again!)

this is a soft n melodious song from from the movie ‘Sakudumbam Syamala’, originally sung by Dasettan for the composition of MG Sreekumar.

here’s my humble attempt, hoping that you will enjoy it :)

(there’s a small story behind this song. when Dasettan came for the recording, my close friend was the sound engineer/recordist over there. after the song take, my friend had put Dasettan over the phone for me to have a chat with the ‘Gandharvan’!! but unfortunately my mobile was in silent mode and couldn’t pick up the line. that was a real ‘missed’ call. probably one of the most expensive missed call ever in my life…. although i got a chance to meet with him personally in 2004, when i was in Bahrain. Now it’s my wish to be present with him, while he is doing a recording :)

Jose….incidently I remember watching the post recording session of KJY on this song. Where he is listening to the raw version, before the mix……you were terrific ….sounded like Dasettan all the time….Dont worry you are probably destined to meet the legend in person….dont lose heart:)
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love

Jose – havent heard the song before, but have a fair idea of how the original would be, after listening to this cover of yours. Excellent singing, Jose. Special mention for the way you have sung ilamanjil, the melle that followed in the pallavi repeat. Superb feel throughout – a very enjoyable cover.

Dear Jose

One of your choice renditions, indeed!
I liked MG’s modern twist on a 60’s-type song. As the Mastercard ad goes, ….“Your passion, priceless!”


pls tune to my album:


Premjith Harivarma said

Josettaaa…. hats offf… u did it 100 times better than mine… seriously I realize how bad mine was especially with my immature voice…lolzz… feeling proud that I was the one who gave you the karaoke …hehe… I am not a trained singer……As a listener, I felt you tried to imitate dasettan (on some parts)… which could have been way better on your own style …….pinne minute slips in timing here and there….hope u dont mind my feedback… tc ettaa… keep checking my posts as well when u get time…


Jose George said

Vishnu, Ajay, Devan & Cyril Chettan, Thank you so much:)

Biju, Thanks for your encouragement :) i definitely want to cover some ‘old is gold’ songs.

Premjith, thanks for your appreciation & feedback :)
there’s no such comparison in singing. everyone has their own caliber. if i was little better here, there are other people who can do much better than me. your singing was not that bad, though you could give more care. your vocal masked karaoke was making your cover bit imperfect. btw, the karaoke you have given me is Kaathil Thenmazhayai’. i’ve got the minus track from the studio, where this song was originally mixed.
i didn’t understand where exactly is the timing slip! can you pls specify which area you felt it?
regarding Dasettan style: yes…. his ‘school of singing’ is been embedded in my life from my childhood itself. honestly i don’t think i have a style by myself till now other than his style :( but i never tried to deliberately imitate him, other than following his expression.
