RAVISHING REKHA BHARADWAJ

Her voice stands apart from all the singers in the industry. Is it her singing style? Her rendition? Her tone? Her entry into the singing field was not too successful but luck turned its charm with one specific song and that has led Rekha to the height where she is now.There is ofcourse no single reason to say why we love her songs so much. Time to list out the best tracks of this versatile singer!

Listen to Rekha Bharadwaj Songs on Raaga.com

'Sasuraal ghenda phool' brought her to limelight and definitely owes the credits to A.R.Rahman and the movie Delhi -6 which released in 2009.  But one must agree that 2006 was a good year for this singer as 'Namak ishq ka' from Omkara made a clear hit amongst the audience and was accepted by all. Bipasha shaking her curves to this song made it even more popular, one can say. In other words, this song marked her entry into Bollywood.

Another hit for her in 2009 was 'Raat ke Daai bajhe' from the movie Kaminey and this song saw Priyanka Chopra making the moves.Rahman who loved her voice used her to sing 'Raanjha Raanjha' in the movie Raavan in the year 2010. The throw of her voice is to be appreciated ofcourse.

For all the dance lovers, who have been watching Madhuri's moves in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, did you know Rekha is the voice behind the 'Ghagra' song? We all must agree that the singer and the actress's voice was relatable. This hit ofcourse led to another and the outcome is 'Atariya' from Dedh Ishqiya.

Her distinctive singing style has fetched her various awards including the National Award for Best Playback Singer in 2011 for Ishqiya. We wish Rekha Bharadwaj goodluck for the year 2014.

RACY RHYTHM – JILLA vs VEERAM (Music Review and Song Comparison)



With Jilla and Veeram going to have a head on collision this Pongal, here is more about the music. The music Directors for both the films are quite famous namely Imman and DeviSri Prasad and both these music directors have always made sure they keep up the ‘racy’ feel of the movie alive.


Theme songs : While Jilla’s theme has a different feel, thanks to the ‘chenda melam’ used, Ajith’s Veeram titled ‘Radhagaja’ has a gripping theme no doubt clubbed with racy lyrics which makes us visualize him in a furry mode. All we could do now is wait and watch.

Romantic numbers : ‘Kandaangi’ and ‘Ivan Dhaana
Well it comes as no surprise that both these melody numbers has roped in Shreya Ghoshal to lend the female lead voice. Although Ivan Dhaana sounds average and is definite;y a good listen, we could feel the pulse of ‘Kandaangi’ becoming a hit considering our Ilaya thalapathy has lent his voice for this number.

Jingunamani’ and ‘Jinguchakaan
There is no other reason that we could compare this two except for the beginning word – ‘Jing’ and ofcourse the non-urban touch these songs try to bring out. But we are thoroughly disappointed as both these songs do not really set our foot tapping. We can let the visuals decide which would appeal to us more.

Mass Hero Songs: ‘Pattuonnu’ and ‘Nallavanu solvaanga
When it comes to Kollywood, don’t we all love our heroes to be ‘Mass’? Well we must say both these songs have not failed in giving out the ‘MASS’ appeal, thanks to the fast paced rhythm and the sentimental lyrics ofcourse which has helped in the emotional appeal. But when it comes to dancing for these songs, we sure do know who can score better.

Yeppa Maama treate’ and ‘Thangame
Well, not really catchy for the listener but ‘thangame’ gives a better vibe of being a hit than ‘yeppamaama treate’. Also with singer Adnan Sami lending his voice for thangame, it does add a good feel to the song and makes it sound different.

Final Verdict: Overall, the songs of Jilla have a better feel when compared to Veeram.

And the countdown begins – few more days to decide which creates the magic!
