Doopaadoo, a successful musical platform for unrecognized young musicians, has now come with an entirely new and unique birthday gift for Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan.
Even as the whole world celebrated Kamal Haasan’s birthday recently, the founders of Doopaadoo, Kauntheya and Madhan Karky have given a new life and colour to Kamal Haasan’s 1977 movie Kokila with their new song, Kadhal Nodiye.
They have merged the visuals of the 39-year-old movie with a new tune, composed by Anil Srinivasan and penned by Madhan Karky. The number has been sung by Chinmayi Sripaada and Sathya Prakash.
“Kadhal Nodiye is a tribute to Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan sir. Now, we may see him in many avatars. However, that look of his — with a unique haircut, long collared shirt with rectangular framed specs were very popular in those times. It still remains a classic…And also, we would like to remember the works of veteran filmmaker Balumahendra sir. Hence we have chosen his directorial debut movie ‘Kokila’. This is the very first attempt by our team ‘Doopaadoo’. We have composed a totally new and fresh tune for the footage we got and we thank Venkatesh of GV films for providing that treasure worthy content to us. We are extremely happy to receive such a huge and positive response from the audience,” says Kauntheya, the CEO of Doopaadoo.
