MILESTONES REACHED - KARTHIKRAAJA

If you loved Illayaraaja’s voice, you will ofcourse relate to this youngster’s voice as well. Wondering why we are telling you this? Well it is because we are talking about our Maestro’s son and well the geniusness in his music can also be seen. Raaga.com gives to you a quick look back at Karthik Raaja hits.

Karthikraaja started his career in music way back in 1996 with the movie  Maanickam. What bought Karthik to get noticed in the crowd was ofcourse Ulaasam which hit the theatres in 1997. The song ‘Veesum kaatrukku’ from the movies is the best out of the album ofcourse.

Karthikraaja has worked in Hindi too in albums namely Meri Jaan Hindustan, Haule Haule etc.  Even in 2008 he composed for Mukhbir in Hindi. Kaarthikraaja has also been roped in for Kannada films in his early career stage.

In the mid 2000’s Kaarthikraaja’s ‘Kudaikkul mazhai’ became a mass hit amongst the audienceand ‘Adiye’ emerged as the favourite track for all. 2006 was comparatively a bright year for kaarthikraaja as mercury pookal’s sound tracks was welcomed pretty well by the audience.

A classic hit of Kaathikraaja would ofcourse be his album ‘Pudhiya geethai’ starring our wonderful Ilaiyathalapathy Vijay as the hero and the best track that we would give a high rank to is ‘Vasiyakaara vasiyakaara’ which did have a different sound to it and deviated our attention from something very normal. Kudos to Kaarthik raja for that ofcourse.

Well in the last recent years, there has not been many releases for Kaarthikraaja after Achamundu Achamundu starring Prassanna and Sneha which released in the year 2009.Raaga.com wishes tosee many different tracks form this music director in the coming year.

Rewinding back to the golden era of cinema when movies like Sholay released, we cannot afford to mention one song. Well yes – ‘Yeh Dosti ham nahi todenge’ stands immortal and on top of our playlist. Likewise the movie ‘Yaarana’ which released in almost the same era, we see Amjad khan and AmitabhBachchan sharing a mutual respect for each other and the best listen from this movie would be ‘Tere jaisa yaar kahaan’.

Friendship always brings out that beautiful feeling of comfort, respect, understanding that one has for the other. Even if they go without talking for a week it feels like years! With Dil Chahtha hai’s title song, we cannot agree more about how ‘friends’ play a major role in understanding what every heart wants.Other new age movie portraying the value of friendship would be ‘Jaane nahi denge tujhe’ from 3 Idiots. Movies like Zindagi na milegi dobaara’ does not fail to rekindle the fact that wonderful friendships last for a lifetime and also give you those ‘best memories’ of your life. The title track of the movie ‘Rock on’ is also beautiful listen.

Another classy friendship song is ‘Mustafa Mustafa’ from Duniya Dilwalon Ki which has remained eternal in our hearts and has also managed to top the playlist even in a college scenario during the time of a farewell etc.

Wherever your friend is and you are missing him/her, time for a small dedication. Dedicate our exclusive ‘friendship’ tracks to your friend today.

BONDING ON A DIFFERENT NOTE

The love that a father showcases towards his children is eternal and that too if it is his daughter, the love for her is totally on a different note. He sees her as a friend, a philosohpeher, a mother, a guide in his life teaching him new things every day. According to any father, his daughter is the big est asset he could ask for.

The first movie that strikes us that was released in the recent era is ‘Abhiyum Nanum’ where we see the adoration Prakash Raj has for his daughter Trisha. His over protective nature by itself stands testimony to whateach father has about his own daughter – the concern that she should always be in safe hands. The beautiful song from this movie would be ‘Vaa vaa en devadhaye’, a wonderful listen.

Similarly the movie Deivathirumagal portrays Vikram in a role as a father showering all his love for Nila (name of his daughter in the movie).’Aariro’ from this movie is definitely a soul touching number rendered by Haricharan.

Another wonderful movie that brings out the true affection of a father towards his daughter is ‘Acchamundu Achamundu’ where we see Prassana showcasing extreme love towards the end of the story too once he realizes his daughter is in trouble.

Who can forget the wonderful acting by our Ulaganayagan in the movie ‘Mahanadi’ after he sees his daughter in a destitute state? ‘Sri ranga ranga’ is a wonderful father- daughter combination song in this movie , picturised  with ease.

For any father, ‘parenthood’ is a very challenging aspect. The bond that a father and daughter develops needs no explanation and it is a beautiful feeling that happens with a spark! Cheers to all the wonderful daddy’s and daughter’s out there!
