Madhushree is the new Udit Narayan

The same Madhushree who gave us mesmerizing melodies like Mayilirage (Anbe Aaruyire) has taken on the task of butchering the Thamizh language. By doing so, Madhushree has replaced the void created by Udit Narayan (remember Kadhal Pisase from the movie Run?) who doesn’t seem to be singing that many Tamil songs these days.

Most of the recent releases have atleast one song by Madhushree and almost all these songs have some mistake or the other.

1. Unakkul Naane from the movie Pachakili Muthucharam (MD: Harris Jeyaraj)

Keerthi has done an elaborate post on this. The word uLLam has been sung as ullam. This is not the first time some non-Tamil speaker is messing up with the same word. It also happened with Sunidhi Chauhan in the film Vallavan.

2. Oru Kalavani Payale Nee from the movie Lee (MD: D Imman)

Like the previous song, Madhushree has messed up the opening line in this too. If you listen to the entire song, you can spot many more gaffes.

களவானி has been sung as கலவானி

3. Perunthil Nee Enakku from the movie Pori (MD: Dhina)

This song has some interesting lyrics and is a captivating melody. It is being featured repeatedly in all the countdowns and those who watch Sun Music will get to see it atleast once every hour. It’s really sad to see such a good song being butchered by Madhushree’s Tamil.

லில்லா நள்ளிரவில்

தினமும் காலையில் எனது வாசலில் இருக்கும் நாலிதல் நீதானே

A line which talks of the hero admiring the mistakes in the heroine’s poetry has been sung with a mistake. One wonders whether they planned it in advance J

எழுதும் கவிதையில் எழுத்துப் பிழைகலை ரசிக்கும் வாசகன் நீதானே

I urge Maruthuvar Ramadoss to give up his protest against Reliance and other retail behemoths and start focussing on chasing the damagers out of the TFM industry. The PMK founder has proved that a Tamil channel (Makkal Tholaikaatchi) can be run with people speaking fluent Tamil and not the popular FM Tamil. Makkal Tholaikaatchi is also using the services of noted Tamil scholar Ma Nannan (some of you might have seen him on Doordarshan in the past) to teach Tamil to the staff and comperes. If these singers are not able to speak fluent Tamil (even some native Tamil singers will fall under this category) they can be forced to get a clearance from Ma Nannan before singing in movies.

  • Ah, a subject close to my heart! I remember the first time I heard Sadhana Sargam singing 'Konjum mainakkale' (not mainAkale), I fell off the chair (honest!) laughing. She then goes to sing 'Ada inre varavendum, en Deepavazhi pandigai'. Aiyo kaapathu!

  • South Indians at large have an inferiority complex with North Indians. By and large, that is a true fact. There is no other reason for the popular use of heroines and singers from the north. If they could afford it, they would start hiring even the music directors. But at least on that front, south is cheaper. I doubt there is any other basis, other then being associated with North Indians singers who change meanings of songs. Even our Yuvan (bless him, poor boy himself can't speak Tamil well, daddy Raja spents so much time advising the public about greatness of Tamil and had no time to teach it to his english-educated kids) has gone on record saying his ambitions are to get Latha Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle to sing. I wonder what singers from the South lack that these over 70 year olds have? There is a lot of talent that is being unused in the south. It's pretty sad. We have plenty of singers to give diversity. You don't need to run to the Sadhanas and Shreyas all the time.

    In any case, one needs to beg these music directors to please stop singing. You are overpaid, to show some mercy to the listeners and not make them want to hate listening to Tamil music.

    Lots of these singers who specialise in Tamizh Kolai were introduced by ARR. As for the Ramdas sponsored channel, it seems almost incredible that he would do something like this. My mother who can't stand mega-serials has finally found a clean channel. Really nice -but most folks would find it boring. Let's see how long Ramdas & co can keep it this way.

    Painful, but true.

    By Anonymous Vijay, at 9:54 PM  

  • You know i am sure she will improve. It is historically proven.
    You must listen to Lata Mangeshkar(the great) in some of her old Tamil songs, like in the remake of Udan khatola etc. Anybody remotely interested in the Tamil dialect would need a defibrillator.
    But then, when she started singing for Ilaiyaraja in the 80's i thoughy her pronunciation was quite impeccable.

  • kaps...oh come on! i think you are just over reacting maan!

    Why make Madhushree guilty of butchering Tamil. Blame the Music directors who bring her to sing. Noone can pick up the exact accent.

    And everyone butchers every language. Like in that Deewana, deewana song, hindi is butchered.

    And if you are so fond of Tamil, explain this...to ask "Where are you going" in Tamil, you are supposed to say "Neen enge pogiraay"
    We say "Nee enge pore?"...in Cheru Tamil it is "Neen enge poyinkeere?"

    And ofcourse Nine should be "Onbadu", we say it as "Ombodu"

    Everyone's guilty of murdering languages, that's why we have dialects.

    ...so as long as people are enjoying the songs could you just stop making your list.

  • I dont know how our people can ogle at anyone and everyone..anyway tats not my point...Madhushree seriously rocks and is a huge talent..of course shreya ghoshal is goddess(no comparisons)...talent needs to be used whether it is from north or south or east or west....by the way madhushree's vaji vaji sivaji is going to be a chartbuster for sure

    By Blogger thalai, at 2:45 AM  

  • In another way, cant we just say this as "Pillai tamil" and forget it? Even Yesuday use to sing.."Pillai tamil padugheeran oru pillai kha ka padugheeran"..its like that some flaw will make other good one to glitter!!! So not a big deal, after all is all the movies are up to our expectation??so to fill the songs???!!!
    No good movies...no good songs..no good singers..suits only "Dindugal Liyoni" its so boring..

    By Blogger Shrinivas, at 1:43 PM  

  • I totally agree that Madhushree is a poor choice for the Tamil industry. Her 'Unakkul Naan' from PKMC is a nightmare. Comparing it against BJ's version makes it look very plain and nasty in terms of pronunciation. Madhushree sounds just like Alka Yagnik, good voice but shrill. Chinmayi, Sujatha, Harini are far better overall.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 7:42 PM  

  • People here speak of madhushree butchering tamil..for ur kind information even pucca tamilians dont get the zh sound well..eg.grt radhika , popular hero suriya...but u guys find faults in someone who comes from north and puts her best to sing a tamil song...I m a grt grt grt fan of madhushree and a bigger bigger fan of shreya ghoshal...both r bengalis which is a mere coincidence..

    By Blogger thalai, at 1:57 AM  

  • There is no reason we need to import Northern talent to sing songs several of our nightingales are perfectly capable of singing: Chinmayi, who sadly never gets as much as she deserves, Sujatha, Chitra, Harini, Madhumita etc. When the lyricist writes his verses, he expects full justice to be done to them. Why else do we not have lyrics in colloquial Tamil? Mr. 'thalai' seems besotted with the young Hindi singers of today.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 2:05 AM  

  • As a matter of fact Madhushree is not her original name...She was named madhushree by ARR listening to her honey(madhu) like voice...Her initial name was sujata bhattacharya..In fact Aaha ethanai azhagu song(Nilavile Nilavile) bears her name as sujata in the audio cassette...Tat is a beautiful song too..Wat a voicee!!!

    By Blogger thalai, at 2:15 AM  

  • Obviously she should have a good voice. THe industry is too competitive to let a poor singer survive. But she just cannot carry a Tamil song. So many lovely songs ruined. What were the MDs thinking?

    By Blogger Kumar, at 2:19 AM  

  • Still Mr.Kumar has not responded to my complain about radhika , suriya and a lot of other people...For all u know mr.kumar might himself not speak tamil well...Appreciate the dedication of madhushree instead of being tamil fanatics...

    By Blogger thalai, at 2:23 AM  

  • 'DEdication'? Meaning dedication to kill the language? Some dedication, to deserve our approbation. I don't care for actors, they are bad in their own right, but when a good melody has such painful distractions due to a careless singer, it is a huge shame! By the way, I know for a fact that 'thalai' is infatuated with Shreya, and doesn't mind the age difference between Madhushree and himself. He has the worst taste in women in general.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 2:32 AM  

  • I am quite sure 'thalai' will retaliate to that comment with a wild and unbelievable story about my own infatuations. Typically frustrated response. Ignoring it would be a safe bet. He cannot stand opposition of any kind. Poor fellow.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 2:36 AM  

  • Mr.Kumar's intentions of liking chinmayee are pretty evident from his final comments...He probably dreams of marrying chinmayee..I would like to bring to Mr.Kumar's notice that music is an art form and you should not blindly support someone just because you find her attractive to you..Reconsider your stlye of choosing your favourites and you would come to my side for sure

    By Blogger thalai, at 2:37 AM  

  • Mr.Kumar, you should not be going to maryland with a fellowship if you are obsessed with chinmayee..You would be better off staying here and maintaining her daily schedule...She would probably consider you if you do the job for her..Shreya and madhushree already have a person to manage their busy schedule..Chinmayee does not need one to manage her schedule since there is hardly any recording for her..However if Mr.Kumar offers to do it for free he would probably get the offer letter the next moment

    By Blogger thalai, at 2:43 AM  

  • At least a young, accomplished and genuine musical talent is preferable to a shrill soprano who cannot even learn a few simple phrases right. It must be said that 'thalai' has designs on Namitha, the buxom ball of flesh sashaying obscenely in item numbers across the screen these days. He even remarked that Madhushree looks good in the pic!

    By Blogger Kumar, at 2:45 AM  

  • Mr.Kumar, why will I come and tell that madhushree looks good in the pic??? You write excellent screenplays...y not give a shot in directing a film..You can direct a heroine oriented subject and have six solo songs to the heroine and make your "dream ideal girl"(as you said) chinmayee to sing them..

    By Blogger thalai, at 2:49 AM  

  • 'thalai', i am quite sure your intentions are not to manage shreya or madhushree's musical engagements, but extend elsewhere really, so apply away, after all, you can apply for financial aid for a spouse at TAMU as well, or live off Madhushree maami's earnings. And for the record, CHinmayi has a decent track record, she is classicially trained in more than 1 form, and has more on her platter than most other one-dimensional singers.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 2:51 AM  

  • Mr.Kumar, it is better if u concentrate on research instead of drooling over chinmayee...On the other hand you can take a leaf from my book..I listen to shreya and madhushree just for relaxation...their songs tend to provide relaxation in lesser time...You r welcome to do the same...I have 1.4 GB songs of the one and only goddess shreya ghoshal..of course almost all songs of the queen MADHUSHREE

    By Blogger thalai, at 3:01 AM  

  • Sir, the setting will be TAMU sir, where you slog away vettily through hypersonic theories, while Madhushree croons shrilly across the plains of Texas. She gets a chance to sing in a rap song because her voice is too shrill to sing even a few notes properly, but she cannot pronounce even English right, so all the best songs go to Chinmayi, who astounds with her mellifluous splendour.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 3:02 AM  

  • I thought Shreya graced your desktop as well. Well, so you only 'listen' to her for relaxation. Other modes of relaxation, with visual stimuli, leap to mind. But I really like CHinmayi's voice. Very adaptable and soothing.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 3:07 AM  

  • Mr.Kumar, Madhushree's songs will add beauty to Texas..You dont have to feel jealous about madhushree getting songs and ur own chinmayee becoming host of airtel super singer in which kutty papas come and shout...Maybe vijay tv feels chinmayee is good enough for only that...

    By Blogger thalai, at 3:09 AM  

  • Mr.'thalai', I have a very good idea what your book consists of, several poses of overweight and scantily clad Namitha gyrating clumsily under a waterfall. Keep your leaves to yourself sir, and feature them alongside your desktop stimuli too.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 3:11 AM  

  • Mr.Kumar, Namitha is meant to be ogled at...nothing wrong if i use her for visual stimuli...But i guess you have digressed a bit too much...The topic is Madhushree and Chinmayee...Where does Namitha come??? In fact both singers have not even sung for Namitha...Digressions are unavoidable in case you run out of points to support ur ideas..I can understand that Mr.Kumar

    By Blogger thalai, at 3:14 AM  

  • Like I said, it was a shame Chinmayi didn't get ALL the songs Mad-maami and/or Shreya get these days. When will there ever be justice in the world? And b the way, these singing programs are where new talents are discovered, for you to shag over. Shreya was discovered in some such thing, after all.
    About Texas, maybe Madhushree's eardrum-puncturing vocals will actually open up the heavens and bring the wrath of the rain-god upon dry Texas.

    By Blogger Kumar, at 3:15 AM  

  • The point was why certain people like certain others, even when the lack of pleasing physical attributes becomes obvious. LIke in Madhushree's case. She is an average singer, Namitha is overweight then why do you like them? Anyway, approach the main point. Do you accept that Mad-maami kills Tamil as it is meant to be?

    By Blogger Kumar, at 3:18 AM  

  • Mrs.Madhu maami does not kill tamil..I accept that her tamil is not flawless...but tat is the case with people born and brought up in Thamizh Nadu..A honey like voice makes up for her tamil flaws..She will make it big in Tamil industry and the no.of songs she has got this year is already an indication of her great success...Vaaji Vaaji will rule TN from May..It will continue to rule till Fall 2008..

    By Blogger thalai, at 3:26 AM  

  • Its all there, just like Yesudas's Pillai tamil padugeren, oru pillai kaka padugheeran..all this sort of different voices will come, we dont need to worry more b'coz there isnt any great story,to feel bad for the pronucation, then whats it???!!!

    By Blogger Shrinivas, at 1:30 PM  

  • heard recently the songs sung by shreya..had been her dear fan for long..she rocks..and madhushree is a great performer..though..cant generally criticise..Ms.kumar change ur thoughts..:P

    By Blogger SAI KIRAN, at 2:41 PM  

  • Shreya and Madhushree are good singers, just not suited to Tamil. I dont think I can get any clearer. There are so many Tamil singers who do a fantastic job with Tamil songs, why destroy a good song by having someone mouth lyrics with great effort and getting it wrong anyway? I think Mr.'thalai' is a fool incapable of sensible argument. I have relatives at College Station who make it a point to rag Madhushree-lovers upon entry to TAMU. You had better purge her form your system, or at least tone down the propaganda.

    By Anonymous Amith, at 3:28 PM  

  • Mr.Amith thinks too much of himself...When they are dedicated to sing in Tamil then y prevent them from singing??? I basically see two big reasons for singers choosing to sing in Tamil...As an industry, Tamil film industry is next only to Bollywood in India..And two great music directors are from TN(A.R.Rahman and Ilayaraaja)...Obviously singing in Tam is a great thing for singers...Shreya ghoshal though is ilayaraaja's favourite has never sung a song in malayalam though ilayaraaja composes a lot for Malayalam movies...Mr.Kumar and his mouthpiece for the last mail Mr.Amith need to look for better points to argue out instead of bringing in College Station and stuff like tat which are totally unrelated to the post

    By Blogger thalai, at 3:43 PM  

  • As far as I know Mr.Amith himself cannot make out whether the lyrics of a tamil song are begin screwed up or not...The reason is simple..He does not know Tamil..And I guess Mr.Kumar did a shameless act by asking Mr.Amith to write what he wanted to tell..Better luck next time Mr.Kumar

    By Blogger thalai, at 3:46 PM  

  • Trust illogical Mr. thalai to make wild and baseless conjectures about others who are defeating him at every turn with sound common sense. The argument in favour of choosing the Tam industry is like saying that a kabaddi player should join the Indian cricket team because it is high profile, and because it has more sponsors!! Who cares how the sport suffers in the process? Singing in Tam may be great for them, but it is torture for the listeners. And about knowing a language in order to know it is screwed up, there are many who know not a drop of Tamil but feel sure Madhushree is doing it grave injustice. On person says on http://shikha.tblog.com/archive/2006/03/ " The song I got hooked onto is Mayilirage from Ah Aah, sung by Madhushree and Naresh Iyer. The song is quite a piece, with wonderful thavil beats, that probably only AR Rahman can mix like this in this day of music :). I know nothing of Tamil actually (I can understand some words but I've never really been able to converse in the language/understand the song meanings - hey, btw if someone knows the meaning of this song or can translate it for me, I will be obliged to you :) ) but even I found Madhushree's pronunciation totally irritating. Tamil songs are usually free flowing, and Madhushree stutters across each word and the lyrics sound totally wierd when she sings the song." So Mr.thalai, stick to the issue instead of making personal attacks.

    By Anonymous Amith, at 4:49 PM  

  • Instead of just taking lines from someone else(who might actually be a bigger idiot than you)and using them to support ur arguments sit and think how one can talk about Tamil songs being free flowing(I dont understand wat this means) and one able to understand the language being screwed up without knowing it...This is total nonsense for me...But I sincerely appreciate such talent...Just UNBELEIVABLE...This is sarcastic indeed...

    By Blogger thalai, at 7:34 PM  

  • You think this is sarcastic, just you wait and see. Unakku aapu vekkaren di, moodikko. I say Mad-maami should set up house permanently in Bollywood, where actually she gets few songs(what an irony), but she can do better. It is clear she is not valued as much Alka or Sadhana there.

    Mr. thalai(or 'mara'mandai if you please), I've been observing your comments through my long, dreamy eyelashes. Given that Tamil is your 'forte', itis puzzling you should take her atrocities so lightly. But you can't blame her, we folk are only too willing to settle for mediocrity while she makes money anyway.

    By Anonymous Rams, at 10:06 PM  

  • If you notice, Yesudas made mistakes in less than a handful of songs...at a time when recordings were done in one stretch. Even Chithra, you can't point out more than a handful, even that, of problems...and that too in her early days. Coming to Madhushree, Sadhana and Shreya, the latter two have been singing in Tamil many years. There is no excuse.

    We all know that rather than for talent and singing, it is for the name that all south Indian industries use north singers. It gives their inferior characters a high. I have read of several stars pointing out that a Kumar sanu or an Udit narayanan has sung for them in this or that film.

    Regardless, some professionalism is not wrong to be expected. If this were to be south singers butchering Hindi, it would not be accepted at all. Look how fast SPB and Yesudas's careers there were curbed.

    And anyday, South singers have as much, or more beautiful voices. If variety were the issue, there are many singers who can pronounce right that are not getting enough chances.

    Shreya Ghoshal is a good singer. But no need to put down talented singers in the need to push up personal preferences. Shreya is good, and is getting better. But talentwise, apart from being lucky and getting much more chances than which some other talented people can only dream of, I am not sure Shreya is any better than Chinmayi.

  • very very very true... it total torture... sivaji songs are a prime example... chinmayi has sung the sahana song so beautifully whereas udit has totally butchered it... and the sivaji song... omg i cant even begin to say how annoying it was to hear madhushree butchering the song and the language... tamil is such a wonderful language... to preserve its sanctity... such singers must be driven away from the TFM industry...

  • It is happening frequently in the Tamil industry, it is not a singers mistakes. Since they are from different language, so we cannot complain them for this. We could blame the music directors for committing different language singers...

  • Your blog is nice. I think you should add your blog at BlogAdda and let more people discover your blog. It's a great place for Indian bloggers to be in and I am sure it would do wonders for your blog.

  • a good one. i really pity the music directors who choose her. i agree that she has got a beautiful mellifluous voice but her diction is so awful that it really butchrs the feel of the song. for this one reason i believe there is a community in orkut called ' i hate madhushree'. there are so many good singers in tamilnadu why cant these music directors choose one of them to sing a tamil song. i am a amateur music composer myself , i will never choose such ppl to sing a line in my compositions. god save tamil. god save tamil music enthusiasts........

  • Oh come on. Rahman doesnt get it right when he sings in Hindi. Udit doesnt get it right when he sings in Tamil. The post looks a little biased!

  • God! i stumbled upon this blog just one day after i wrote a post on the massacre of thamizh by madhushree, sadhana, udit and the likes. hmmm.. namma feel panni yena aaga pogudhu.. time for the music directors to do somethin.. :(

  • I understand your pain.. I remember writing letters to Nityasree Mahadevan requesting her not to sing any Sanskrit/Telugu/Kannada/Malayalam Songs..

    It pains when she sings Endaro MahaanuBhaavulu as Endaro Maga..Anu Baavulu... Meaning "Many wells called Maga".. which is no way related to what Tyagaraja meant..

    Similarly Sudha Raghunathan sings (instead of Sankha Chakra Dhara) - Chanka Chakra Dhara... In Telugu Chanka means underarm.. :-)

    I always wonder when John B Higgins could sing so well without killing the Saahitya.. what's wrong with our own folks..

    May be I should file cases under section 295A against these singers.. :-(

  • hmmm.. i feel Madhushree is one the only singer who sings with emotion. u can pratically hear her smile while singing or giving an extra emotion in it. she will pull some words and finish it with a very loving tone. thats 1 of Madhushree's speciality.

    for more discussion on Madhushree, please visit my blog :

  • Hi Kaps ,

    Leave northies messing up our beautiful Tamizh , shouldnt we condemn our own directors, lyricist and so called Kavingnars whose psycho creativity gets reflcted in their rotten music,movie, poems and dialogues ??

    wat do u particularly say abt the song"adra adra Naaka mooka"?

  • There is a lot of talent that is being unused in the south. It's pretty sad. We have plenty of singers to give diversity. You don't need to run to the Sadhanas and Shreyas all the time.

  • i never got the logic of letters in tamizh. it has 2 'l's, 2 'n's and so on but nothing to distinguish between 'b' and 'p', 'cha' and 'sa'...! just for the record, naanum tamizh dhaan, chenNAI illa valarndhen.
