Critics - The NO Brainers....

நெஞ்சு பொருக்குதில்லையே இந்த நிலைகெட்ட மனிதரை நினைத்து விட்டால்

The so called “Music Critics” have started using the word “FILLER” in their reviews. I am not sure how these “so called” Music critics call the kritis of Mumoorthy's as a “Filler”.

Few Findings :

a. Calling Neelayadakshi in paras as filler and sending chits to vocalists to sing Nanda Laala Nonda Laala in the concert.

b. Comparing Maadu Meikkum Kanna & Aadu Meikkum Jesus with Ranganaayakam (Nayaki)

c. Comparing the singer with vidwans of past generation. Its really pathetic to see people comparing the current generation singers with Stalwarts and vidwans. Sometimes belittling the Vidwans.

d. The critic will have not have any “BENCHMARK” while reviewing the concert. A simple example will be “Thodi” could have been better. To add salt to the wound, A less tempo would have been even more better.

e. Giving the song list to the Singer after the concert by saying, “I would have loved it” if only he/she taken “Sri krishnam Bhaja manasa” instead of “Kaddanu Variki”

And still the trend continues.....

Mistake Vs Blunder - Sathiyam TV

Was watching Sathiyam TV today morning, An interesting program on the life history of Sri Muthuswami Dikshitar was getting telecasted.

Both the Script writer and the document reader do not have any knowledge on the music and on the language (Tami/Sanskrit).


Shri Nathadi Guruguho in Mayamalavagowla is a master piece by Sri.Muthuswami dikshitar composed on the lord Muruga and the script reader comfortably reading the word "Sri" as " Seeeeri naathadi" and stressing it more on the "eeeee".

Dont know if these people will rehearse before the show  or just air the program just the for the sake of it.

You hear the recording from :
