The reproduced version of 'Devadoothar Paadi' for Kunchacko Boban's 'Nna Thaan Case Kodu' has gone viral and has garnered over six million views so far
The song, sung by K J Yesudas 37 years ago, has been reproduced for Kunchacko's upcoming movie Nna Thaan Case Kodu', directed by Ratheesh Balakrishnan.
Veteran singer Yesudas remembers how he heard Lata Mangeshkar's voice for the first time from a wayside tea shop in Kochi and the countless songs they sang together in later years.
He recalled how Latha’s magical voice had been soothing to the world and told Manorama Online that he regrets not having met her in person.
When the movie Jesus ran for 101 days, its producer Thomas had promised Ranganath that he would be called to compose music for his next film too, but that didn't happen.
Inspired by Thyagaraja Swamigal Alleppey Ranganath introduced Pancharathna Krithikal in Malayalam and recently he had composed Malayalam keerthana based on 72 Mela Kartha ragas.
The noted music composer, who has created hundreds of hit songs in all South Indian languages, says he hasn't seen a singer who could sing as beautifully as Dasettan.
The voice which began to dominate the musical days and nights of Malayalees since the 60s continues to reverberate with the same intensity across generations.
Mohanlal wished the living legend by posting a video of him singing some of the songs that Yesudas had sung in his films.
Yesudas notes that SPB was a true wonder in playback singing.
