Recently i heard "Swara Abishekam" album, a movie directed by veteran K.Vishwanath in telugu. The album has 9 songs. All the songs are classical and melodious and sung by legends like SPB, KJY, Chitra, Mano, SP.Silaja. It has all the right elements to win this year's national award for best music. Strong contestants for the award would be "Swades" from bollywood and no much album worth the award from tamil, except there is little chance for "Autograph". In malayalam we have "Akale" from Jayachandran. And i don't know about music from other languages. To remind all, Illayaraja got national award for music of "Sagara Sangamam(Salangai Oli)" and SPB got best singer national award for "Sankarabharanam". Both the movies were directed by K.Vishwanath. So, i feel Vidhyasagar is going to bag next year's national awards.
Here is a complete revu on the album

That was a Good Review, glad that VS is not doing those silly stupid fast numbers.
Few corrections, on the article
1) Dr.SPB is not 60+, he is 58
2) Though Chitra is a great singer, Chitra and Mano are not Legendary singers like Dr.KJY / Dr.SPB, besides, Mano is Big time SPB want to be !

I don't think any Indian female singer is capable of matching Chitra in the last part of the song Padariyen..with the swaras. She showed such a clear diction with a mellifluous voice in her early 20s. So, I feel Chitra should be considered among legends in Playback singing (she has turned 40).I agree with your point on Mano. He is a good singer, but not great enough to be called as a legend.
