I had made a Duet mix using the Chinmayi version and Jayachandran version of Kannathil Muthamittaal song (Oru Deivam Thandha Poove). I got a comment which said "Why don't you try making a duet video mix?" Was planning to do it for a long time now... Finally, I found time to complete this!! This is my first attempt at non-linear video editing... Waiting for comments!!

The Making :
As I already had the audio mix ready, I thought this would be a cakewalk! Only after I started, did I realise that the only the first charanam of one version and the second charanam of the other has been picturised by Mani Ratnam... So, my existing audio mix became unusable for this and I had to start the audio mixing from scratch. I decided that I will make only one charanam with a few lines each from first charanam of one version and second charanam of other version. Then came another surprise.... The background music that plays during the two charanams are not exactly the same! Did a lot of tweaking and adjustments to ensure that it doesnt sound odd! Once that was ready, I had to lip-sync the video with the audio mix!

And... one more thing... In this mix, there's something different about the "nee" in "Enadhu pagaiyum nee" which Chinmayi sings... Did anyone notice it?

    1) Bloody brilliant ! Love the transitions and the hazy overlap between Madhavan and Simran!

    2) As for enadhu pagayum nee, the background beats take an anticlimax kind of touch- which is totally unnoticeable in the original coz the next line comes real quick.
    Love it ! :-)

    Nice! kudumba paatu madiri aidthu!! :) Really good job!!
    As for the 'nee', it's from the first line of the second charanam, right? :)

    @ Rumz:
    Thankooooo :D

    //the background beats take an anticlimax kind of touch//
    partly right... but that comes in the original too... :D

    Kudumba paatu, eh?? LOL! :P

    regdg the "nee" - bang on target, vani!! that "nee" alone is from the second line of second stanza!!

    Simply fantastic!! And I agree with Vani there, sounds like a kudumba pattu! :)

    P.S: First comment from a regular visitor.
