Chennai Sangamam an open festival. Chennai's White Night.

Labels:

Tamil Maiyam & Dept. of Tourism and Culture, Govt of Tamil Nadu presents this festival that was been carried throughout the whole city from January 10-16, 2009. Rather than saying it as festival i would say a Chennai Carnival or Chennai's White Night.

This Chennai Sangamam was organized by Kanimozhi (Member of Parliament) daughter of our Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi. Chennai Sangamam is basically an idea of bringing all the folk artist together and make to perform in front of huge crowd. Most of the city based people dont know much about the these folk artist and about their performance. There were more than 2000 folk artist who performed in and around the whole city from January 10-16.

I had a chance to visit few place where this Chennai Sangamam was been carried out, seriously i hav't seen anything like this so artistic, so colorful, and very energetic, and the folk artist very so friendly and were very joyful to see so much of people enjoying their performance.

To start with the first the grand opening,
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi inaugurated 'Chennai Sangamam 2009' a cultural festival, at the Centenary Auditorium of the University of Madras where Union Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi and Union Minister of Tourism and Culture Ambika Soni also took part in the grand opening programme.







After inauguration the folk artist started performing in front of these ministers. The most prominent thing was Drums Sivamani joined this festival and even performed in the inaugural event and later he joined all the folk artist people and gave a superb performance, Sivamani with his own style of beats combined with the folk beats created a superb fusion type that was really awesome.








These are the place where Chennai Sangamam celebrated.
1. Chennai Corporation Ground, Kodambakkam Trustpuram,
2. TVK Nagar School ground, TVK Nagar,
3. Lady Wellington College Grounds, Marina Beach Drive,
4. Nageswara Roa Park Luz Church Road, Mylapore,
5. Natesan Park Venkat Narayana Road, T. Nagar,
6. Tower Park, Anna Nagar,
7. Sivan Park, P.T. Rajan Salai, K.K. Nagar,

13. Island Ground,
14. Thiru.Vi. Ka Park -- Shenoy Nagar,
15. ECR Road – Palkalai Nagar Palavakkam,

The most prominent in the Chennai Sangamam was The Finale. The closing ceremony took place at Elliots Beach – Besant Nagar started at 5:00 p.m and went up till 10:00 p.m, almost whole Chennai people had gathered to see Sivamani to preform live at Elliots Beach.

Apart from Sivamani there was other world famous artist who took part in this Chennai Sangamam, My favourite Dr.Kadari Gopalnath famous for Saxaphone recital- classical, performed in this festival. O S Arun famous for carnatic music, Lawrence Raghavendra'S Dance Group, Bombay Jayashri- Carnatic Vocal, Bhairavi & Malavi – Carnatic Vocal, Saindhavi – Carnatic Vocal Music, Nithyasri – Carnatic Vocal

Somehow got time and visited Chennai Sangamam with friends had been to Natesan Park Venkat Narayana Road, T. Nagar on 14th of January and to Elliots Beach – Besant Nagar on the 16th of January to watch the grand finale. Actually I should thank one of my friend Shwetha she was the key person who convinced us to come for Chennai Sangamam, this was the first time I saw Chennai Sangamam and we were so lucky I should say because when we were at the Elliots Beach it was so jam packed but still managed to go near the stage so that we could take pictures of Sivamani, later we saw the Sivamani got down of stage after he arranged his drums and other equipments we both ran backside of the stage to see Sivamani little closer. and guess what I spoke to Sivamani and requested for photo and he said no problem but make it fast because I have to perform. I thought I should give Shwetha a chance first because she's crazy about Sivamani and she was the one who made this happen, and this is that picture Shwetha with Sivamani.


Looking at us taking picture with Sivamani even others requested and the place got little crowd after when we swapped the camera and when i again requested Sivamani he said he can’t and then started leaving. Later another friend of mine Sharat joined us to see Sivamani's performance. At the end of the we all had nice fun, I guess it was the luckiest day for three of us. When were about to start towards home i saw a man dressed like a demon, was looking so horror and so colorful, I thought i should take a picture with him. I requested and he smiled because everyone was scared looking at him and this the picture me with the demon


My other friends looked at the picture said that even i should have showed some facial expression then it would have been much horror and interesting.

In this video NDTV shows how Chennai Sangamam was really created.

Jessica Alba Hollywood Actress now in Tamil Movies

Labels:


Jessica Alba Hollywood famous actress is being roped into Tamil Movies, thanks to Soundarya Rajinikant MD of Ocher Studios which is producing Venkat Prabu's next venture GOA.







Goa is based on real life murder which happend on February 18, 5:00 am, Scarlett Keeling a 15 year old British girl who was sexually assualted and murdered by an Indian Barman, almost 2 hours later Scarlett's half naked body was found on the Anjuna beach.



Venkat Prabu who have decided to direct this real life murder as movie called Goa, before when Goa's plan was launched i thought its gonna be more of comedy type movie which had four heroes and four forign girls who meet this guys and dream about getting married to Indian where the story revolves about how the four guys marry them but did't expect it to be a real life story. I guess its going to different movie from venkat Prabu not like his other two movies.


Jessica Alba is been asked to do the role of Scarlett in the movie. Hope she agrees to do role and act in Tamil Cinema for the first time.

Naan Kadavul Audio launch image's

Labels:

Naan Kadavul one of the most awaited movie launched it's audio on 1st January 2009, That was the first event that happened in Tamil Film industry in this year, Bala the director of the movie who worked very hard to bring this movie to the big screen, he struggled alot more of confusion at the start with the star cast but later managed to complete the movie with Arya and Pooja.

The audio launch was held at Satyam cine complex, even i went to Satyam that day to watch Vaaranam Aayiram but i got tickets only for night show where as the audio launch was in the morning time.

The ace directors Mani Ratnam, Balu Mahendra, Vaali, actor Surya, Vikram and others were present for the audio launch.

Some of Audio Launch function Image's



















Naan Kadavul Music Review.

Naan Kadavul a movie that made every fan of director Bala to wait for nearly more than a year. Bala who's other name is perfectionist no matter who the hero is he will make them to so the shot again till he gets satisfied. Mostly Bala's movie gets selected for National award or atlest the star cast would bagg National award, hope Arya gets it through this movie.
Bala is also known for giving break or career to the hero, his first movie Sethu (1999) which was a massive hit and was a great break for Vikram. There after Vikram changed his to Chiyaan Vikram. Bala's next movie was Nandha (2001), a career bost for surya which really potraid him as a real action hero, in this movie surya would have used more of face expression rather of dailogue. Bala's third movie Pithamagan (2003) which was a real hit for both the hero Surya and Vikram almost most of the award was bagged by this movie at the period of time Vikram even got National aaward for his acting as a Undertaker in this movie.

After a long wait for nearly years Bala have come with this Naan Kadavul.
A story which is totally based on the holy town Varanasi, Naan Kadavul is all about GOD inside the human.

Star Cast:
Arya - Rudran.
Pooja - Hamsavalli

Music Director : Music Mastro Ilaiyaraaja.
Lyrics : Kavignar Vaali.
Dialogue : Jayamohan.

One thing is that Bala never missed Ilaiyaraaja as the music director for his movie out of three movie he directed two mega hit movie was done with Ilaiyaraaja. Nandha's music was scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja.



When it comes to movie like this i feel that no one, other than Music Mastro can score the music for the movie, His music will the give the perfect feel which will the match the story. Music Mastro would excel in any style that is given to him, Devotional to Retro anything is easy for him, For nearly a decade he rulled Tamil Cinema with his music. All those music are atill evergreen now most of his songs are been remaked, even if it is remaked it cant stand upto the original.

Mastro has scored 6 songs in this movie.

1. Om Siva Om.
Vocal: Vijay Prakash

This song is totaly kind of devotional song on Lord Siva, Kavignar Vaali has written this song where he has praised Siva in beautiful manner, music of this is very superb a perfect balance in using most of the instruments like drums, Sankha, fascinating Tabla work and some amount of Native percussion, Rudram is one thing you will hear in the whole song. Its a song where you will imagine Lord Siva dancing Thandava over the beats thats been composed. A good work done by Vijay Prakash.

2. Kannil Paarvai
Vocal: Shreya Ghoswal.

Its a kind of gentle pathos song where Shreya Shoswal has showed her talent. This song has a gentle touch of Hindustan music, Shreya goes to a high pitch which is really superb. Violin is used which seens to suit the mood and is nice. At the start of the song dilruba is been used, i guess it's a perfect start. The Dholak like rhythm is used to suit the mood of the song.

3 Matha Un Kovilil.
Vocal: Madhimitha

Its a tiny number with native rhythm. This song seems like one of old tune, its very good to hear the mastro in action after a long time.

4 Amma Un Pillai Naan.
Vocal: Sadhana Sargam

Its again a sober number like the third song with different feel of rhythms, Sadhana have done a superb work in this song, Mastro has used violin veena, some guitar and keyboard also with other instrument. A superb dramatic song that of a woman crying out against loneliness.

5 Oru Kaatril Alaiyum
Vocal: Ilaiyaraja

The mastro he himself has sung this number its almost same as the song number two. Feels flattered to hear Ilaiyaraaja after Shreya Ghoswal. The words have come much clear in Mastro's version. A superb song to hear.

6 Pitchai Paathiram.
Vocal: Madhu Balakrishnan

This song was taken from Ilayaraaja's old album which was composed for Sri Ramana Maharshi, in the original album Mastro he himself have sung it out some changes have done as compared to the origina, the song can be discribed as "The cry of a deeply anguished soul in search of lasting peace" nice work by Madhu Balakrishnan. Tabla is used mostly in this song which came out very nice suiting the mood of the song even violin and flute is also used, A different kinda of guitar is also used its sounds more of like native stlye. If can try to hear original one of this song Mastro's voice is very superb and if you are die hard fan of Mastro you will love it to the core.


The songs have come out very nicely which suits the theme of the movie, the movie is expected as a serious kind with reference to the music, but i came across some article long ago that this movie also contains comedy may not as a seperate track but mingled with the movie. Bala is also known for timing comedy which he used in all of his movie. Karunas was introdused as comedian in Nandha, Pithamagan comedy was really awesome Laila was too good really perfect for that kinda role.
Waiting for movie to come on to the big screen, Hope i get tickets for the movie this Pongal.
