Having sung some major hit numbers under the belt of KV Mahadevan and MS Viswanathan, she was already a talent to reckon with. One of the evergreen melody was under the music direction of Shankar Ganesh, "Meghame Meghame". All the credit to Vani Jayaram to have given such a wonderful number. And thanks to Shankar Ganesh for bringing a wonderful Ghazal to south.
See below the original ghazal:
Unfortunately, she could sing only a very few numbers under Raaja's baton. Have you ever gone in one of those roller coasters that has all the sharp bends, twists but lands very safely. Yes, that's the analogy I would want to give to the song "Kavithai Kelungal" from Punnagai Mannan. For a long time, I never had a liking to the song mainly due to the shruti changes. Coming to think of it now, what an amazing composition! The Shruti Bedham in the midst of the song reflecting the emotions of the Revathi and a true roller coaster ride experience with Vani Jayaram's voice is a treat to any music lover.
Enjoy the musical treat:
For most of the music lovers, Vani Jayaram will live close to our heart.
