Song of the Day: Adhineedani from Swaraabishekam (Telugu).
- The National Awards for 2004 were announced today. Apart from the awards given from the what-on-earth-are-they-smokin department (Best Actor Award to Saif Ali Khan), the best singer awards went to Udit Narayan
(Swades) and Chitra
(Autograph). The best lyricist award went to Paa.Vijay for Autograph. Vidyasagar
bagged the best music director
award for this album, Swaraabishekam in Telugu. This was his first. The SOTD is from that album. I've not listened to all the songs from this album, but I would have thought that A.R.Rahman (Bose and Swades) would have been a serious contender to bag the award.

The sog is picturised on (telugu) Srikanth (not the Parthiban Kanavu guy) and the beautiful Laya who were both here for the TANA conference held in Detroit in July 2005. The situation is the first night for the newly married Laya and Srikanth. Srikanth and his elder brother (played by K. Vishwanath) play the roles of music directors known for churning out wonderful melodies. Incidentally this particular song, composed romantically by Laya and Srikanth, starts the sequence of events leading to jealousy and break-up between the brothers. Eventhough Srikanth composes the song, when the song wins the Nandi Award (AP state award), the credit for the composition is acknowldged by the elder brother - leading to an expected jealous reaction from Laya.
Onde of the worst movies by K.Vishwanath with very bad directorial touch and acting by him. The intro to the movie (and the brothers) is based on an alaap by Rajan+Sajan Mishra and K.Vishwanath's expression is pathetic.
Vidhyasagar has composed other beautiful songs in this movie - notably Kudikannu adhirEnE (SPB and Sunitha - yes! the same Sunitha who was on tour in the US recently accompanied by rajaG and Viswamohan), and anjudai lakshmanadu (KJY+SPB). KJY's singing is very apt for the old man role played by K.Vishwanath :-)
