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..

Beautiful rendition Very well sung by the home team :-) Priyanka has a sweet voice and she should sing more regularly. NVK ...You should have sung the original ...the way you put the weight on words and the expressions you give every word ...makes you a great singer.

Beautiful song by both of you. Enjoyed it well. I guess Priyanka got the musical talent from her Dad. Goodluck to her in all her endeavours.

Loved this song, NVK Sir! You were, as usual, awesome! Especially, "Cholliyile" before the 2nd interlude was so soothing.

Priyanka renders able support. Hats off to her perseverence in getting the song and lyrics right!

Looking forward to hearing more such melodies from yourselves.

Krishnan ji,
Beautiful singing.. As you told, Priyanka managed the pronounciation.. but can be improved... On the rendering part, "paathiraa mayakkam" was superb... And hats off to your soft melodious voice.
btw, Kallai is not the same now... Its counting its days to the inevitable fate.
