Vikram croons in five voices For Madarasapattinam

Vikram croons in five voices

G V Prakash is still getting compliments for making Dhanush sing a number in Aayirathil Oruvan, but the music director is certainly not one to rest on his past laurels.

The composer recently pulled off a coup of sorts — making Vikram sing in five different voices for a number in Arya’s Madharasapattinam. Among others, the actor has sung like a dhobi, a teacher and an old man in this peppy song with an old Madras feel.

Revealing details, GV Prakash told CT that he was looking for a “raw voice” for the number. “It was director Vijay who suggested Vikram’s name,” he says, “Vikram has got a rustic voice, very much like Dhanush, and this particular song Meghama Oh Meghame... — the visuals of which have a lot of characters — demanded such a voice.”

Initially, the team thought that they’d use Vikram’s voice only for Arya’s scenes in the song. “But once Vikram saw the visuals, he decided to sing the full song,” he adds.

The true professional that he is, Vikram immediately got down to practising for the song. “He surprised us by ‘performing’ his part in the recording studio,” reveals Prakash, “We were all awestruck by how he changed his voice to suit the character that he was crooning for. I’m sure that this will turn out to be the highlight of the album that’ll release later this month.” So, will he work with ‘singer’ Vikram in the future, considering the fact that the actor has sung some superhit numbers in Kanthasamy. “I’m sure we’ll work together in future,” he smiles.
Chiyaan Vikram has crooned for a peppy village number Meghame Meghame.. in the film Madrasapattinam under the baton of music director GV Prakash Kumar.

The album of Madrasapattinam is going to be truly different with a beautiful Ghazal, a peppy number Pookal Pookkum Tharunam which is a blend of western and Indian classical sung by Roop Kumar Rathod, Harini, GV and Andrea.

Another song Vaama Doraiamma.. sung by Udit Narayanan has voices of late Cochin Haneefa and heroine Amy Jackson which has an old Madras feel to it. Aaruyire.. and Katrile.. sung by Hariharan and Rhea are the other songs in the album. Adds GV: There are five songs and two theme songs and it will be a rocking album after my Aayirathil Oruvan. The audio will be launched by the end of March”.
