Yehnulle ~ Bewitched

Yehnulle a single by Anjali who is known as Madhana Anjali due to her song Madhana Ft Psychomantra. She made a comeback with a music video this time and this song is already blasting in radio stations!

Yehnulle's lyrics by Maney Villainz definitely has one of the catchiest lines where it will make you play the song on repeat.

The teaser itself made me hum the song and listen to it on repeat before the full song got released. Guess why I went to the album launch feeling all excited is out now.

This bewitching song was composed by Sundraa composer and the use of the Sitar by Sitarist Vijaendran KC gave Yehnulle a soothing setting and also added an extra boost to the song.

The music video felt like it is 40 minutes short film but it was shown brilliantly within 4 minutes.

Kudos to the small team Bala Ganapathi Wiliam the director, Sharveswaraa Naidu the DOP and Ramses Rao the editor.

Despite the fact that they were just a small team but there were no lacking or missing pieces say on the quality or on the scenes. Every single scene was well thought like as if it a work by a huge team.

Bala Ganapathi William (BGW) is known for producing very promising videos with great quality. Say his past work Kaadhal Enbathu Saabama or this music video, both give you great visuals.

When Yehnulle got released, the visuals in the teaser looked about the same as Kaadhal Enbathu Saabama.

 So I thought it is going to be a great competition between  Kaadhal Enbathu Saabama and Yehnulle but I was so wrong.

There is no way you can compare these 2 products as both are completely different and both products speak on its own. Credit goes to BGW for thinking everything thoroughly.

Last but not least, not forgetting Madhana Anjali who has a very mesmerising voice. The main factor to why I got addicted to this song!

I tried to sing like how she did and Penang got flooded. I am sorry, world!

Sid Sriram~ Music is All I Know and I Can't do Anything Else

1. In your entire life journey have you ever endured a point where you felt like giving up on music?

I actually studied music, so I went to college for music. So there was never a point where I felt like I  wanted to give up on music altogether. There have been many points where I was frustrated with the way the industry works.

Both over there in the US and when I am operating in India but you know for the last like 6 years I started my career in Tamil films in 2012 so it has been 5 years now. I have been blessed enough for things to happen. So it has been times where I have been very frustrated or down but I have great mentors.

AR sir has always been giving me really good advice. I have a really good family unit behind me that pushes me always so it gets hard. Sometimes you don’t know what’s going to happen where the money is going to come from but I really have a good support system so it allows me to keep moving.

2. Have you ever felt devastated while working?

See the thing for me is music is all I know I can't-do anything else even if I want to. Since I was about 3 or 4 that’s when I started singing and I knew that I wanted to be a musician when I was about 12 years old and once I made that decision I just put all of my eggs in that one basket.

So even if I wanted to give up I don’t really have any other options. I think one thing is for sure. My love for music is a very deep passion. It’s almost like my religion I think. So that is never fading. Sometimes being a professional musician is also difficult because that’s when you have to mix the art with the business side. For the art part of it the music part of it I have never lost any passion for it.

It has always been very strong within me but what I do at times I will like take a break.

What I will do is listen to music that I love. I listen to old AR Rahman music. I listen to the different artist that I love.  I take a break from performing and I just spend my time like listening to music and I become a fan again.

As much as I am an artist and a performer I am first and foremost is a fan of music so I just keep that intact always.

3. What are your future plans?

My biggest plans in near future are I am going to release a solo album. It's called and it's mostly in English and a little bit in Tamil. So that’s about the release. We have been working on it for 3 years now. I am just excited to finish that and release that.

On a broader level, I just want to keep exploring.  I want to obviously keep singing for films working with AR Sir is always a huge blessing. I hope one day I would work with Illya Raja Sir. So hopefully that happens.

At some point, I want to do a music direction for films myself.  And in Carnatic music which is my foundation and that is something like for lifelong exploration. Very dense. Very complex kind of music so with that. I think all music. I just want to keep exploring and exploring and just try to find out more stuff out. Discover new avenues. New grounds of music and it's just a lifelong process.

EVT- The Farm ~ A Good Game but It's Not My Cup of Tea

Again like Melle Tiranthathu Kathavu, in EVT the first half Karthik Shamalan beautifully executed a love story which will win many people's heart I believe. From there EVT will travel to the second half which is a slasher thriller.

EVT prepares you for what you are going to feel and experience throughout the entire journey in the very first scene itself.

No kidding! I was closing my eyes and ears at most scenes cause I have a very weak heart. I can't handle blood and slashing. No wonder it is rated as 18 plus. (I'm still 16 by heart).

EVT magnificently shows how a deaf and dumb girl is exploring the world with sound using her hearing machine along with her loved one.

While embarking the journey she will be kidnapped by someone who disguises as "The Wolf". How will she escape or will she even escape is what makes EVT as a whole.

Of course, it doesn't just end there. There will be a police squad who will be working on the missing case and will be digging the past in order to find out "The Wolf".

Jaya Ganason did a mind-blowing work by carrying the deaf and dumb role very well. As for a deaf and dumb girl, it is not easy to convey a message on a screen.

She made every move and gesture of hers to speak behalf of her by being extra expressive and that shows the effort that she has taken to portray her character well.

Personally, I feel the story was a little draggy at one part when she got trapped. Other than that, the story was rather captivating and the anticipation to know who is the GOD DAMN WOLF KILLED ME!

The only reason why I love EVT so much and I would not think twice to watch it again though it is not my cup of tea is because of the ending.

You would never be able to guess who is "The Wolf" until you watch the very last few minutes of the movie.

 I thought it's impossible to not be able to guess as somehow we would be able to guess right? Nope, you will have to watch EVT to know why you would not be able to guess.
