Yeh Nayan Dare Dare - Cover by N V Krishnan

One of the most popular songs of Hemant Kumar (1920-1989). From the movie “Kohra” , this song is composed and sung by Hemant da himself. This song was again sung by Lataji as a tribute to Hemant da in her Album “Shradhanjali” and also sung by Jagjit Singhji in his album ” Close to My Heart”.

My rendition here is a mixture of all the three versions of the song as mentioned above. However the Karaoke track is as per the original of Hemant da.

Please listen and give your feedback..

Tera Chehra Kitna Suhana Lagta Hai - Cover By N V Krishnan

Presenting a Ghazal after a long time…Again a Jagjit Singh ji’s number from his album “Unique”. It is a very melodious as well as meaningful romantic Ghazal.

A strange thing happened while recording this song. I had sung and recorded with lot more harkatein and improvisations than the current one. I was tooo happy with the outcome also, a very rare feeling for me about my own songs. But unfortunately when I saved it and played it back, the vocals were playing in a note lower than the track..!!!!!. There was no way I could do anything as it had already been mixed. The master file in the recording software was playing alright, though when mixed and saved again it was playing wrongly. At last I had to discard that recording and re-record the whole song again... I was sooo fed up of the whole thing and decided to sing very simply without much improvisations... :( I still have not figured out how this happened...!!!!

Please listen and let me know what you think of it…

An immensely popular Malayalam song from an immensely popular movie, "Chronic Bachelor". It is one of my very favourite songs of Jayachandran. I have made an attempt to sing this with Rashmi Nair who has sung the female portions originally sung by Sujatha. Please find out how good we were at this...

Kallai Kadavathe - Cover By N V Krishnan and Priyanka Krishnan

A Malayalam song from the movie “Perumazhakkalam” , originally sung by P.Jayachandran and Sujatha, composed by M.Jayachandran.

Singing a song with my daughter Priyanka after a long time. That too a Malayalam song..!!! I had a real tough time teaching her to pronounce the words. I think she managed them(diction) quite well. She had to take utmost care on singing part while concentrating on the diction too much.

"Kallai", a suburb of my home town Calicut, has a special connection with my life. That is my birthplace. Kallai is very famous for timber business. It was considered to be the biggest timber market in the world after Ottawa in Canada. I am not too sure if that is so even now. .

I am really glad that I am singing a song starting with the name of my birthplace....:)

Please do hear the song and give your honest feedback..
