Shivaji, MGR and Gemini Ganesan, the three legendary Tamil heroes of the ’80s have many things in common. Amongst various striking features of their films, one that stands out is the music composed by legendary musician MS Vishwanathan. COLORS Tamil is all set to present a tribute concert of Mellisai Mannar MS Viswanathan, ‘Ninaithaley Innikum’, on August 3 and 4 at 7 pm. ‘Ninaithaley Inikkum’ was organized to remember and celebrate the fabled hero of music – MSV. The event saw a performance by the playback singer SP Balasubramanyam, Anuradha Sriram and Mahati.
Anup Chandrasekharan, Business Head – COLORS Tamil said: “This is a great occasion for music lovers in the state. We are bringing alive the magic of MSV through SPB, another legend of this industry and many more singers in one show. At COLORS Tamil we are always looking at newer avenues to keep our audiences engaged and partnerships like these take us one step closer to the viewers. We are certain that the beautiful medley of songs will take everyone on a nostalgic trip back in time.” The show also witnessed a special dance number by COLORS Tamil’s Perazhgi and Malar fame Gayathri, Arun and Vyshnavi for the evergreen song ‘Aadaludan Paadal’.
Playback singer SPB as he is popularly known said: “MSV is a magician when it comes to music as he has created some unforgettable numbers that live on for generations after generations. He broke away from traditional compositions and experimented with many fusion numbers, which was truly an innovation back then. The intricacies and nuances in his music speak about his passion and knowledge that comes from his rich experience. It is such a privilege and I am deeply honored by this opportunity to render his light romantic numbers.”
