Cheeni Kum

Yet another song where Shreya is at her best. Although I prefer the Tamil original mandram vandha thendralukku from Mouna Ragam any day, I can keep listening to this song just for Shreya's voice! And that is the power of Raja's music- more than 20 years and the tune is still fresh.

Recorded this quite a few months back...
So here goes my version :)

Song: Cheeni Kum
Movie: Cheeni Kum
Music: Ilaiyaraja
Lyrics: Sameer-Manoj Tapadia
Singer: Shreya Ghoshal

very beautiful - why didn't you sing the tamil version? if it a duet or is it not the exact same?

the high pitch was a bit unnatural, but you handled it very well. it's melodious!

Lovely rendition Sindhuja. I have listened to most of the songs in your blog and I must say you have a crystal clear and melodious voice that's indeed a gift not everybody possesses. Infact I have been inspired by people like you,Murali and Meera which mad eme create http://swarams.blogspot.com

I have posted my first song here Mayil Pola Ponnu Onnu from Bharathy. Do listen and comment, as ffedback from people liek you would really mean a lot.

Beautifuly sung . Like to hear the tamil version of it too (if possible).

Abi said...

Oh yea i realised it later that, the tamil version would suit only for the male voice, because of the lyrics :-)

I'm hearing the hindi version of this song for the first time and that too in your voice only. Very nicely sung. Expecting more songs like this from you. Keep singing !!!

Thanks much, all!
Sumi: The thamizh one is a male solo by SPB :-) And the music (interludes etc) are entirely different.
