Santhanamum Jevathum

Happy New Year! to everyone. I wish you all a Happy, Prosperous and Healthy 2011.

I wanted to start my 2011 blogs with a happy number and narrowed my choice to this peppy number from the movie Valli. Apparently, this movie was produced by Rajnikanth and ended being a moderate success. Music & background score was by none other than Illayaraja. This particular song sung by SP Balasubramanian & SN Surendar was really awesome 1. From the perspective of its presentation 2. Foot tapping rhythm 3. Its casualness.

As a topping to an ice cream, I had the privilege of singing this song with my nephews and my daughter who lent their voice in finishing this song. While I would agree we could have done this better, I need to confess that we completed this song from scratch in less than 1 hour with almost all of the singers except myself not knowing this song. Given the above, I wanted to congratulate these youngsters volunteering to experiment.

As always listen, enjoy & please leave your constructive criticism .
