SriHarikathe

SriHarikathe

The Trend of listening to Traditional Harikathe is gone in most parts of the state. The reason might be that, Harikathe is an art where some illogical mythological stories are explained so seriously!

SriHarikathe is one movie which shows a Harikathe daasa telling a romantic modern love story in a comical way. The movie is directed by Dayal Padmanabhan. It stars the talented SriMurali, kannada premi Pooja Gandhi and her sister Radhika Gandhi. Its also in news for the fact that, for the first time, the gandhi sisters are acting in opposite roles in the movie. Besides these actors there are a lot of other talented actors featuring in this movie like Naveen Krishna, Sihi Kahi Chandru etc.

The audio of the same was released on 12th Dec, 2009 @ Hotel BELL, Bangalore. The music director of the movie is Sameer Kulkarni of Urban Lads album fame.

Oh ya, am here to speak mainly about the Harikathe Audio infact. What impresses me in the Audio of Harikathe is that, there are no songs which are like “inserted in the script for the sake of it”. Every song is completely blended with the script’s pace, i.e, as the song goes on, the story also moves in the movie.

SriHarikathe Audio Release

Now lets come to the most interesting part of this blog.
Mobilena Switchnu aarisi, ee katheyannu aalisi !

Oops, am not telling this to u.. this is the starting dialogue of the Harikathe daasa in the Harikathe Title song. The song starts off with a touch of Titanic theme music in it and goes on to Harikathe format of singing. It has been written and sung by Naveen Krishna himself, who features as the Titanic Harikathe daasa in the movie.

The movie has a limited number of steamy scenes which are very much essential for the script, all of those would fall in to a song in fact. The song is Sari Sari illellavu sari , sung sensually by Kunal Ganjawaala in his usual sensual bheegey hont tere tone of voice! The pallavi of this song sounds more interesting and impressive than the tune of the charaNa of this song. Probably, the steamy scenes of PoojaGandhi during the charaNa lines would fill it up for it 😉 heehee! The song ofcourse is a duet 😉 and the female singer with Kunal is Inchara. The lines like “Sukhavu onde Sanjeya guri“, make it feel more sensual. Thanks to Naveen Krishna again for the lyrics.

Aah.. now I get to the most melodious romantic number of this album, Summane Ninnannu. Any guess about the singer? Who else can that be, apart from the one and only Rajesh Krishnan! I would say its a bold and a worth appreciating step by Dayal and Sameer for not employing Sonu Nigam’s voice for this song, because such a melodious top class song always goes to Sonu these days. To make this song even more better, We have Yograj Bhat writing the lyrics for this. The basic tune is taken from Sameer Kulkarni’s earlier Urban Lads hit album’s Gari Gari song. Each charaNa has a romantic poetic voice coming up, telling a kannada shaayari. I guess its Sumanth’s voice. “Dooraviruvudaralliye Jaasthi preethiyu yaakide?” “Yella iddaru besara.. preethi yendare kaathara” “keLi biDuvenu devara, preethi yaakide eethara?” are some of the lines that really add to the beauty of the song!

The beauty of the previous song is such that, the same tune with a lesser tempo , a different voice and a different lyrics makes it a perfect pathos too. Yes, the team has very intelligently picked up namma Vijay Prakash for this pathos version, Jodi JeevagaLe! Vijay Prakash puts every possible feel of pathos in this song, so beautifully. Dont be surprised if you get in to a very different mood by listening to this 3 minute song. Nagathihalli chandrashekar‘s Lokalokadha baadhege, preethiyembude oushadhalines portrays the importance of missing love in the song.

There is one more very popular song of Urban Lads album adopted in to SriHarikathe, thats “maaDabeDa“. There are lot of things that we should be doing in life, but what shouldn’t we do? explains this song. Sung by Inchara and Written by the music director sameer kulkarni himself, is supposed to be the Introduction song of Pooja Gandhi in the movie. Pooja would look trendy in more than 10 costumes in the same song. This is a mix of Hip hop and Rap with some good music also.

Besides all this, there is a Fast theme/promo music which would not be featured in the movie. It has been sung by Sameer Kulkarni and written by M.L.Prasanna.

Overall the album features the FEEL needed for the movie, as I already said , every song goes with the story.

Now its time for you to listen to the Audio and wait for the movie. Good luck to the team !

Harshika Poonacha was my friend from Facebook. Me and Harshika acted together in Agni Sridhar’s Tamassu movie with Shivanna. My experience with her during the shoot, made me write these  poetic lines for her.

ದಿನದಿನವು ರವಿ ಮುಳುಮುಳುಗುತಿದ್ದಂತೆ
ಹಸಿರಾಗಿ ಬರುವಳವಳು ಮೋಹಕ ಚೆಲುವೆ
ಮಗುವಿನ ಸಹಜತೆ, ನಗುವಲು ಮುಗ್ಧತೆ
ಅಭಿನಯವ ಅನುಭವಿಸುವವಳೀಕೆ !

ಸೌಮ್ಯತೆಯ ಮರೆಯದೇ ಎತ್ತರಕ್ಕೆ ಏರಿಹಳು
ಪರಕಾಯ ಪ್ರವೇಶದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರವೀಣೆಯಿವಳು
ಕಣ್ಣ್ ಹನಿಯೆ ಸಾಕಾಯ್ತು ಮನಮಿಡಿಸಲು
ಮನಕಲುಕಿಸಿದಳು ನಿಶ್ಚಿಂತೆಯ ಶಾಂತಿಯಿದ್ದಾಗಲು

Predicting whether an audio album would be a superhit, or hit or avg or whether it goes away unnoticed is hard anytime. But here is a movie for which we can say, the movie would get the best possible support from music even before the music release has happened !

How is it possible? Which is that movie?

Before answering these questions, let me tell you just one thing.
THE MUSIC DIRECTOR of THIS MOVIE is, RAGHU DIXIT !

Just Maath Maathalli

Just Maath Maathalli

Haan, Now I think you would have already believed my words! But now that I already have plans of completing this audio-preview, I shall do it ! 😉
Just Maath Maathali” is Sudeep’s next movie, for which Raghu Dixit owns the Music department. I used to listen to the half done tracks since they evolved, as I keep visiting Raghu Dixit at his studio. I always had a very good opinion about the tunes of JMM. But now, he has finished composing and recording of 6 songs for it, and it would be out in markets soon !

One unique stuff about JMM is that, every song looks like, to be a title song, because the phrase,  “just maath maathali” is at a prominent place in the lyric of all songs in this album.

Just Maath Maathalli, She stole my heart away… is supposed to be the main title song, as the JMM phrase comes atleast 12 times in the song 😉 RD, excuse me if my count was wrong ! This is an extremely beautiful track, sung by RD himself. The song starts off in typical RD style (am probably referring to psycho here), but when the phrase JMM starts repeating, it really steals your heart away and moreover RD had showed his voice-range again in this track.
Now this tune gets more special, because RD has  sung the Reprise of it too, just that, now its seems to be in a Sad mood and with less tempo. The words, “Idu kanaso nanaso? kaNhaniyo arivo ?” sounds touching!

Just Maath Maathalli

Just Maath Maathalli

Din’t I speak about the heroine of this movie? Oops.. Yes, I did a mistake! Heroine is one of my favourites.. Yes, Ramya ! Oooo Ooo Oooo Oooo! Why am I “Ooo”ing so much!? Oh man! it just comes naturally 😉 ! Yes, Ramya deserves a solo song to act for in this movie, and Raghu Dixit has done the magic for her too. The song “Yello“, with fast beats, has been sung marvellously by “Saindhavi” of Mussanje Rangalli(Psycho) fame. The song starts of with background “Oooo”ing in RD’s voice in an interesting tune(tune is mindblowing), and also follows at places in the song, with haLLi kannada style Rapping (with JMM phrase) in his voice. Saindhavi takes up the melody part in this song excellently.

Right after this, I heard the Travel song. Looks like this song would get picturised in London, and hence you can see the best use of Bagpiper-ish background music for this song. It starts with the lyrics “marubhoomiyallu“,  sung by Karthik, who has an excellent voice, but has somewhat imitated Raghu Dixit’s style of singing in the song! But ofcourse, nothing negative, as he has added his value to the song, by giving the “perfection” touch to the song. Karthik was the perfect choice for the song is what I felt. The beats with the music and karthik’s voice, when he says “Heege Just Maath Maathalli“, and the way the bagpiper picks up from there, in this song is really awesome.


Raghu Dixit Rocks…
! Yes, we all know that.. why suddenly? Lol.. That’s because, the next song I heard was a Stage performance Rock song. “Just Maath Maathalli, Just KaNkaNNalli” rock song, starts off with the singer making the audience sing “Na.. Na Na Na Na” (just as in RockOn.. ofcourse different tune boss!) and then the singer starts of with his Electric Distortion Guitar. Singer of the song is none other than Raghu Dixit again! Middle of this song has a surprise… Lakshmi Manamohan, of “Ee Touchali” fame, has 2 soft lines to sing in this song too!

Last but not the least, is an exciting news! Kaise Mujhe Tum Mil Gaye.. Huh!? Bollywood song yaake banthu eega? Ofcourse, for Benny Dayal! Benny Dayal’s second song in Kannada (other one is from LoveGuru movie) is from JustMaathMaathali. This song is very very different song… You can listen to a different mood of music in this song. The song makes you involve so much in to it, that a little bit of distraction would create some dissatisfaction in you and would make you listen to the song from START again! Benny Dayal does a very good job with Kannada too. The way he sings “Baanallu neene.. Bhuviyallu neene” lines in the song is impressive!

And yes, that was the end of JMM track listening session for me! But the tracks are still echo-ing in my ears! Iam sure this would be the superhit album of 2009.

Hats off RD. In my earlier preview of RD’s Superman tracks (Click here), I remember having mentioned, “Look, A R Rahman of Kannada is here! Catch him“!, and now my above preview supports this Quote again!

I usually get petrol filled for Rs.200/- every time if its my 2-wheeler… Rs.500, otherwise. Most of your might have had bad experiences in a petrol bunk, like say, they dont start off from ZERO mark, or may be they dont put for Rs.200 fully and end at, Rs.199 only! 🙂 or may be something else!

PETROL BUNK, BANNERGHATTA ROAD

PETROL BUNK, BANNERGHATTA ROAD

I will narrate you one such bad experience I used to have at Petrol Bunks in Bangalore. The petrol bunk, opp. to my office on banneghatta road is one such place, where anyone can have a bad experience for FREE of COST ! 😀 hehehe.

The usual Trick, played by petrol bunk service men are like this : The billing person or another service men, would stand right next to you, along with the service-man who would have his Petrol Pipe in his hand, ready to pump the petrol for you.

Way 1 :

You might say “Innoru rupaaayi” or “Two Hundred Rupees” to the person. He will start putting petrol and stop exactly at Rs.100 . If at all you notice that, he has put petrol for only Rs.100, you will ask him.. He will act as if he heard us saying it as Rs.100 only ! and again restarts the pump from 0 and puts upto Rs.100. This has happenned to many people, who have even asked the person to pump petrol for Rs.100 and he ends up saying he heard it as Rs.50 only! Aaw Gawd!

Way 2:

This way, is pretty interesting and very bad too. You ask the person to put petrol for Rs.200. The other service-man or the billing person who is right next to you, will ask a waste question to you.. like .. “Sir,.. Cash or Credit card?” .. or “Sir. if you pay by ICICI credit card you will get 5% cashback” (as if credit card users wouldnt know, or other credit cards wont give the cashback!), or “Sir… Petrol tank opening-alli koLe ide.. Service-ge koTTaaga clean maaDsi!” … etc etc.. Something like this. Beware of Such questions !! They are just to Distract you from the Reading! The PETROL PUMPS have a mechanism such that, even though it looks like it starts from zero, it quickly jumps to a preset number, like 40 or 50. So for people filling for Rs.200 or above, they cant make out the difference much, is their idea(especially for the 4 wheelers). With 2 wheeler drivers, they try to distract them with some weird question or offer, and make them turn over their side for a second or two.. Within this time, the service-man would have started putting the petrol, and by the time you turn towards the other side, to see the reading, the METER looks very much fine, showing rs.40 on it and smoothly running!

In case, you dont get distracted by the other service man, and you are staring the METER all the time, then the moment the person who is supposed to pump the petrol realises it, he goes and resets the, already Reset Petrol Pump! (This is just to ensure that, the pump meter doesnt jump off to rs.40 or so, as the customer is staring at it.. basically, he doesnt want to get caught red-handed! 😀 )

So next time you go to the petrol bunk, make sure

1. You stare the meter, from starting .. till end.

2. Dont get distracted by anything else, while you get your petrol filled up.

3. Get down your car to monitor whether he is really filling the all of the petrol in your tank only!

4. Enquire the service-person about it, if you see that speed of the petrol pump meter varies continiously all through the filling up process.

5.  Dont let the service-man happy, if he says, he heard it as just rs.100 or rs.50, when you have ordered for rs.200 !

6. DONT USE MOBILE PHONES inside PETROL BUNKS lolz ! Service-men would be eyeing such people, the most !

Kashmeeri Krishna

Posted: May 27, 2009 in Uncategorized

God is omnipresent! (You may know, “god” means something else to me, as an atheist). Man should visualize god in everything around him, in order to love and serve all.

This small poem again brings out the same point, by visualizing the black mountains as Lord Krishna (Krishna == Black in sanskrit), and the snow caps formed through the fall from the clouds reaching the mountains,  as the butter that he loves the most. The rivers flowing around the mountains symbolise the ksheerasaagara around the God.

Kashmir is the land of Krishna, no doubt!

ಕೃಷ್ಣನ ಜನ್ಮಸ್ಥಳವೆಲ್ಲೆಂದು ನಾ ತಿಳಿಯೆ…

ಕೃಷ್ಣನು ನೆಲಸಿರುವನಿಲ್ಲೇ, ಅದು ಖರೆಯೇ!

 

ಕೃಷ್ಣನೇ ಸರ್ವಾ೦ತರ್ಯಾಮಿಯಿಲ್ಲಿ ,

ಕೃಷ್ಣನೇ ಆಧಾರ ಸರವರಿಗೂ ಈ ನಾಡಲ್ಲಿ!

 

ಸುತ್ತಲೂ ಕ್ಷೀರಸಾಗರವು ನಾದವ ಹೊರಹೊಮ್ಮಿಸಲು,

ಮೈಗೆಲ್ಲಾ ಮೆತ್ತಿಕೊಂಡಿರುವನೀತ, ಬೆಣ್ಣೆಯು ಕೈಗೆಟುಕಲು!

 

ಕೃಷ್ಣನಿಲ್ಲೇ ಇರುವ ಕೃಷ್ಣವೇಣಿಯ ಶಿಖರಗಳಾಗಿ,

ಆಗಸದಲ್ಲೆಟುಕುವ ಹಿಮವೇ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆಯೆ೦ದು, ಭಾರತದ ಹಿರಿಮೆಯಾಗಿ!!

For people facing font issues,

Its an obvious thing for many of friends that Iam a fan of Upendra, the kannada superstar/real star.  I had been such a mad fan while at college, that I used to enact/direct Uppi’s mimicry based roles on stage, watch Uppi’s movies multiple times etc. I have had a glimpse of the actor many times in heavy rush from far off. I have been always contented with it, because he is a role model for me, for my THINKING and WRITING skills.

On May25th 2009, I got a call from Kiran Sreedhar, RJ, Radio City 91.1FM. He is my very good friend and we have done a lot of recordings together before. This call was also for a recording for RadioCity, but it was something special. Kiran told me that we have Upendra in the Studio and we have to record something special. So I directed a sequence for him and myself, wherein Upendra calls me and tells that its Upendra speaking. So I keep saying that its some prank call on me and you are not Upendra.. The sequence takes a lot of funny dialogues and twists and finally after a minute, kiran interferes and says, it was not a prank call, it was really Upendra who called me up and I had become a bakra again by not believing him! Upendra was very happy about how it came out.

Soon after this, I messaged Kiran and thanked him for making me speak to my superstar. He asked me to come over the RadioCity so that we all can meet. I was very much excited, Rushed to the Studio in just 5 mins!

The moment Uppi came out of the Studios, the moment I saw him, the feeling was exactly similar to a person who would have done a penance for 9 years for God, and finally would have got darshan at the end of 9 years. I shook hands with him and told him, its me who spoke to him during the recording on phone. He was very happy to see me and he said, “ayyo allello idri, ille banbiTTideera eega!”. Kiran explained how i came so fast to the studio.

Upendra exclaimed. “Neevu bahala chennagi mathaaDtheera. Kiran kooDa heLthidda”. I was again happy to hear this. We all (Kiran , Uppi, Me, Rj Pradeepa etc ) went to a NO MAN’s LAND in the same building. It was photo session time. Kiran took my photos in RJ Pradeepa’s camera. Soon after this, we all had a cup of coffee together, chatting about the problems in the multiplexes, the negatives of kannada producers and other stuff.

Now Upendra was getting late and he had to leave. We went upto the parking lot to bid a bye to him. He had come in his black AUDI car to the studio. Best part was, he had no driver. Hee Hee. (ofcourse, why do you have to give the costliest car to a driver to drive!?)

It was a fantastic experience for me to meet Upendra. Here is the AUDIO CLIP of the DISCUSSION we had.
