Scintillating performance by JR for NJTS...

It was truly a memorable evening as some of the finest tunes of 'kollywood' was being reproduced to a befitting audience that was full of zeal & enthusiasm. It's always a pleasure to see the audience enjoy your performance and this time around it wasn't just the applause - the groovy moves did the talking.

The instruments were sounding awesome with the right proportions of rhythm & beats that created an aura of festive fervour. All of this created a perfect backdrop for the singers to execute their songs to perfection - While Srivats's rendition of 'Paatum Naane' stunned the audience, Durga's 'Minsara Poove' was received with a deafening applause. To create a s(m)oothing & sweetening effect, Swarna rendered 'Kannan Vanthu' and Anitha followed suit on 'Unnai onru ketpen'. Arul & Sharmi's rendition of 'Poo Maalaye' was a true treat to every Ilayaraaja fan. While Payal set the floor burning with her rendition of 'Uppu Karuvaadu', Rukku set the bar really up with her powerful rendition of 'Ooyayie'. With 'Yengeyum Yepodum' Chenthil had the audience asking for more and that was promptly fulfilled by Vaidi's rendition of 'Naaka Mukka'...

It would be complete injustice if I didn't mention the support & backing that the instrumentalists provided. We're extremely proud of the fact that despite the variety & difficulty levels of the songs, we have not compromised on our core principle of 'creating every tune/sound live on stage'...

Chenthil & Venky also provided the perfect setting for every song with some witty, intelligent and thought provoking discussions around the theme - 'leading ladies'.... The duo's act was well received.

Our performances would be incomplete without an ode to the 'Mozart ofMadras' - AR Rahman and so for the first time JR performed JAI HO in front of a Tamil audience - after all it is a tribute to the genius. One could see the the feeling of pride that every single person exuded as the audience swayed and swooned to this number.

As we continue to move on with success from one show to another, we're overwhelmed with the appreciation and encouragement that the audience has showered on us. We hope to continue this journey to scale larger heights - With JR there is always something new coming your way...
