I like listening to Tamil Ghana songs!! And i found this song "Nakka mukka" from the movie "Kadhalil Vizhunthen" totally different and interesting. Few years ago in tamil film industry it was just music director Deva who was famous for composing Ghana songs, but in the recent days lot of other music directors are doing very well like Vijay Antony,Yuvan,Babu etc. Besides the usual melody songs and the Dhaam Dhoom intro songs for heros,its the Ghana and remix songs that is gaining popularity in the recent days. The famous tamil song in the year 2007 was "Valameenu" from the movie Chithiram Pesudhadi. "Ghana ulaganathan" also won the best playback singer award in the filmfare festival.Even the "jalsa" song from chennai 600028 was a popular one. "Thailaivasal Vijay" also sings ghana songs.
Ghana songs is full of slang and simple words. These songs makes everyone to dance.When talking about dance, recently in the the small screen dance shows are gaining a lot of popularity. Wherein most of them dance only for koothu songs to prove there dance style and talent.Even the dance masters tell that it is very difficlut to dance for koothu songs.Though i dont have much of classical knowledge, I think Ghana songs are easy to sing and does not have complicated thalams or ragams.
Even in college cultural fests to make the audience enjoy they play only koothu songs. When i was surfing the channels i was surprised to see a special show for ghana pattu in Kalignar Tv. Apart from the standard "Ragam & Thalam" and "Classical music" shows this one brings a new avatar to music.This show has apt judges like "Deva" and "Ghana Ulaganathan".People who participate in the show compose their own tune and frame their own lyrics too.
Listing a few Ghana and Koothu songs that i like:
Ettana Irundha - Ellaame En Raasa Thaan
Vallameenu - Chitirrem Pesuthadi
Naatu sarakku- Pudhukottai saravanan
Saathikadi Pothikaddi - Sukran
Enga Yeriya - Pudhupettai
Gummangoo - Machi
Ethukku Pondatti - Kizhakku Seemaiyile
Naakka Mukka - Kadhalil Vizhunthen
Ghana songs will allways be liked by tamil movie audience!
