The title track from Kamal Haasan’s upcoming flick ‘Vikram’ which was released on Wednesday has become a huge hit among the fans. The song is written and sung by Kamal Haasan. But what has caught the attention of the fans is the ‘Madras’ slang of Kamal Haasan in the song.
Kamal’s playback singing career started in 1975 with the movie ‘Andharangam’. Since then, he’s come a long way as a playback singer juggling genres and rendering superhits. But his songs with Madras slang has a special place among his fans. Let us take a look at some of the popular ‘Madras’ slang hits of Kamal Haasan.
Raja Kaiya Vecha – Aboorva Sahodharargal:
Kamal himself has several times confessed his weakness for ‘Madras Tamil’. Raja Kaiya Vecha is one song that showcases how much he enjoys the dialect. This fun filled track is composed by Ilayaraja and has lyrics by Vaali. Kamal’s peculiar voice makes it one of the most favourite songs among his fans.
Kaasu Mela Kaasu Vandhu – Kaadhala Kaadhala:
This ‘kuthu paatu’ marked Kamal’s return to ‘Madras Tamil’ after a long time. Another interesting aspect of this song is Kamal’s pairing with Udit Narayan, an unlikely match for this genre. Music for the movie is by Karthik Raja and lyrics is by Vaali. Kamal and Prabhudeva’s dance moves on screen is a treat to watch.
Kandasamay Madasamy – Pammal K Sambandham:
This is one of the all time favourite songs of Kamal fans, especially bachelors. Kamal’s Madras slang combined with Vaali’s lyrics and Deva’s music creates absolute magic. This is a song full of energy and tops several playlists till now.
Aalwarpetta Aaluda – Vasool Raja:
This song is more like an anthem for Kamal Haasan fans. It speaks about love failure and how to overcome it in a fun-filled manner. Music is by Bharadwaj and has lyrics by Vairamuthu. The song is peppy and foot-tapping and a favourite of many till date.
Neruppu Vaayinil Oramai Eriyum – Pudhupettai:
In his prolific playback singing career, Kamal has sung for other actors too. The Neruppu Vaayinil Oramai Eriyum track from Dhanush’s ‘Pudhupettai’ is a special place. Na Muthukumar’s lyrics combined with Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music and Kamal Haasan’s voice takes the song to a different level altogether.
