( Kallai irundhen - Uliyin Osai, Dhanyaa, Sriram Parthasarathy )
The last few days, I am hooked to the song above from the film - ULIYIN OSAI. Music is by Maestro Ilayaraja. Fantastic melody, though it has shades of IR's old songs.
Some of the songs that come to my mind when I listen to this song are:
Both the songs above are masterpieces IMHO by Ilayaraja.
About this song: I think it is set to the raaga - Hindholam, though I am not 100% sure. Both Sriram and Dhanyaa ( who is she ? ) have done a good job, though I feel that Ilayaraja could have taken care of Dhanyaa's tamil pronunciation. I see shades of S.Janaki in Dhanyaa's voice.
Sriram Parthasarathy is amazing - He has a fantastic voice, well trained. Superb emotions and great pronunciation. I like the way he throws his voice...nice to listen to !
