Azhagiya Thamizh Magan Audio – My views

Azhagiya Thamizh Magan features Vijay and Shriya Saran. The movie is produced by Appachan and directed by Bharathan. AR Rahman has composed the music, with Vaali, Na.Muthukumar, Thamarai and Pa.Vijay penning the lyrics.

There are totally 6 songs in this album, including a remix of yesteryear hit ‘ponmagaL vandhaaL’. One thing that struck me when I saw the track listing, was the number of new singers ARR has used in this album. Luckily, all of them sound like Tamilians (Pronounciation is good).

Last june, during one of my cousins wedding I met one of my long lost relatives. When I was talking to him, he told me that he was working with the music industry. Not as a musician, but as a technician arranging instruments and setting up things in the studio etc. I thought his work profile was quite different and exciting. But when he said, ‘I have met Rahman sir twice’ I literally begged to him ‘Please take me to him, atleast once’. Sometime early last week, he told me that he has some work in A.R.R’s studio, and asked me if I would come along. He also told me that ‘Sir might or might not be there. I have work only in his studio, and I am not sure if we can meet him’.

A.R.Rahman -15/15/15

It has been 15 years since ARR made his debut. Here are some 15 random songs composed by Rahman which are not extremely popular like the ones of Roja, Dilse etc that I enjoy. I have deliberately left out the songs from films directed by Mani Ratnam (With exception of one song), Shankar, Ashutosh etc. If you get a chance, do listen to these songs.

Udit Narayan

Its a fashion pulling the leg of Udit Narayan, Madhushree, Sadhana Sargam and other singers saying their pronounciation is bad. Agreed. They butcher tamil. Now I have few questions

1. Have you guys heard Bhanumathi, KJ Yesudas etc sing? pillai nila romba nalla pronounciation aa? If that is not butchering then what is?
2. What about Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle butchering Tamil?
3. Radhika, Vijayakanth and many more so called Tamil actors blabber something and call it Tamil. What about that?

Why target Udit & Co alone?

Which song is this?

Pradeep asks here

‘can u tell me the movie in whicht the following song is in “agayam melee agaram keele anantha ulagam naduvinilae” it is a Rajni movie’

I know a song, Aagayam Mele baadhaLam keezhe, aanandha ulagam naduvinile from ‘Naan Vaazha Vaippen’. But Agaram keezhe? This movie was a remake of Amitabh’s Hindi movie Majboor and had Sivaji in the lead. There was a Rajni cameo as well

Before you wonder, how I know so much, I would like to tell you that I googled and got these answers ๐Ÿ˜›
