Vijay, The Singer : Part 1

Vijay is not a professional singer. Nor he has learnt anyform of music. But music is in his blood, with his mother Shoba and uncle S.N. Surendar being trained singers. Whatever he has learnt by listening, he has tried to put forth through a few songs, which ofcourse, has turned out to be really fruitful.

There was a time when songs would pop up a message saying “Indha paadalai paadikondiruppavar ungal Vijay” (This song is being sung by your Vijay) Most of them were B Grade gaana songs and many went just unnoticed.

The major break through was in Kaadhalukku Mariyaadhai where he sang “Vizhiyil Vizhimodhi Idhaya Kadhavondru Thirandhadhe” composed by Ilayaraja. That was what helped Vijay rediscover himself as a singer. He sang many songs in his voice after that most of which were big hits.

And a special thing is that, Vijay has done playback singing alone for a movie starring Surya. In the movie Periyanna directed by his father SAC, Vijay sang 3 songs for Surya under the music direction of Bharani.

I am sure very few would have listened to these songs. You can listen to tham from this link.

Vijay has sung three songs in the film, just like a professional singer. The gaana style "Dum Adikara Style", Duet with Swarnalatha "Jutterileena" and the very naughty "Roadla oru chinna ponnu". Listen and enjoy!!!
