An Indian born singer, Abhay Jodhpurkar enrolled himself to be trained in music. He joined the KM Music Conservatory, A.R.Rahman’s initiative to spread music across the country. A wonderful singer that he is, his versatility is amazing. Wondering why? Abhay Jodhpurkar can also sing the Qawwali genre with ease and has been trained in the school for excelling in this genre.

He entered the industry of play back singing in the year 2012 itself with three songs for the movie Godfather, the kannada version for which A.R.Rahman was the one who composed music. He sang along with popular names like Sonu Kakkar, Chinmayi, Arun haridas and so on.

In the same year , he also sang for the movie ‘Konjam koffee konjam kadhal’ , a wonderful song named ‘uyir thozhi’ in Phani kalyan’s tunes. This too gave him a good push in his career. Well, being A.R.Rahman’s favourite he was called again in 2013 to sing ‘Moongil Thottam’ for the movie Kadal by Mani Ratnam. This song, a wonderful duet along with female lead Harini was a hit from the movie and is an apt choice for some melody mood songs.

The song ‘Otthayilai’ from the Endrendrum punnagai was pretty famous and Abhay yet again got a chance to sing alongside a great singer like Tippu for this. The music was scored by Harris Jayaraj for the movie. An blossoming flower in the industry, Abhay surely has a long way to go with already one hit this year – ‘Vinmeen’ from the movie Thegidi.

GHOSTLY LOVE

Don’t we all see a lot of ghosts in Tamil movies? Don’t we all love watching horror films? Some people associate really well with the way the horror turns out to be. Sometimes it is believed that ghosts assume the form of another soul and come back to one’s body with another purpose. Some ghosts are believed to be very lucky, the protecting charm for a certain family. But ghosts can be very creepy at times and makes people do even things like a murder! Check out our exclusive songs where we see ghosts appear!

The song ‘Naane varuven ingum angum, yarenrtu yar’ from the movie ‘yaaru nee’ is one famous song where we sse the heroine clad in a white saree is seen appearing talking to the guy. Set in a valley/hillock, the song is a soothing song too. Another famous number is the song ‘Vaa arugil vaa’. In this song we see the actors in a dense forest as the ghost appears. From the movie , ‘adhe kangal’, the song sends a cold shiver to the listener and makes us wonder if we will be attacked by a ghost!

Songs like ‘Ore jeevan ondre ullam’ where we see the song play is after the snake in the human form is dead. This song too can be associated with – not the human form , the ghost! Songs like ‘Nenjam marapathillai’ from the movie titled in the same name also can be attributed to singing for the lost soul, the good soul, the protecting soul in this case.

Thus ghosts sometimes have been viewed to scare children in some songs, or to portray the lost love , or sometimes even to show the identity of the past. Nevertheless, if the belief is there, it always is there!
