Mannippayaa (cover version) with Unnikrishnan K.B

Probably the hardest song I have done to date emoting wise…given that literally each word had a different conflicting emotion attached to it OR that’s what I took away from the original when I heard it the first time. Unnikrishan KB has lent the male vocals for this, and as always, been really emotive-his signature :)

The k-track didn’t have the initial backing chords as in the original. So in came Bala Thanks a ton for doing that, you gave it the apt start it needed :)

Thanks Pradip for taking the time to sit on this cover, and for your himalayan patience with every nit and grit that I threw at you about the mixes you sent me!!

One of the most difficult song to emulate the expressions of the recent AR Rahman melodies. The voice on the cover sounded different though just wished the voice could have been toned down to make it sound softer. Unni, the notes were bang-on. Amazing voice and looking forward for more songs from your side. Great emotions by both of you.

All in all, very well-executed with a superb feel and soothing vocals. Just felt the overall mix lacked punch.
