Hi! it's been a while since I've updated my blog.....have been so caught up in the routine :(
I have been trying to learn this awesome song 'Telusa Manasa' ..a Telugu duet from the movie Criminal by the great SPB & Chitra and remembered that I had sung the Hindi version months ago for Taranaa. I distinctly remembered Soumitra too had sung the same song and I'd loved his rendition. I asked him if he could lend me his voice so that I could combine both our songs and make it into a duet as it is in the movie..
Here's it is..a revival of our songs that were long forgotten and tucked away in our respective computers! :)

I've also recorded the title song from Hum Tum with Soumitra. He's done an awesome job with it.. Please do give it a listen and let us know what u think of it :)

Thanks much!

Movie Name : Criminal
Music : MM Kreem
Original By : Alka Yagnik & Kumar Sanu
Sung By : Vidyu & Soumitra

Nice performance, nice creative way to 'duet' it.

Listened to Hum Tum at Soumitra's site......another gem you two have created.

I have you heard you perform with Abhijeet in Kansas and have been following your blog since then. You have a lovely voice and so has Soumitra. You both sound beautiful together and that's what makes your duets special.
Keep singing both of you!
God Bless!

I heard SPB sing the Telusa Manasa song and immdtly fell for it. I thought he'd sing it last month..when he was here..but he didn't..I was a little upset.

This is a great song and You've done a wonderful job of it Vidyu. Loved it.!!

First time listening to Soumitra..and I must say he has a nice voice and his rendition is also superb.

Thanks for a treat.!

Vidyu and Soumitra - Par excellence!

MM Kreem (his Hindi Filmdom Name)is Margada Mani Keeravani. He is a classical genius. Basicaly a ace violinst and most of the violin pieces he plays himself in movies. You should listen to Gharanamogudu and Kshna Kshnam - Two of his super hit musical extravaganza by Keeravani. his creations are NOT sterio type unlike a few other ace Music Directors. All the songs in these two movies are very enjoyable.

You and Soumitra shoud try the Andha Kshna Kshnam. Amazing song with bass guitar effects at its peak. Sometime it sounds like synth too.

I was a bit dissappointed with both of you. Thought you will add the Telugu lyrics. The song is very rich in Telugu than in Hindi. But both versions are melodius.

Thanks for the treat, though!

Just could not differentiate between the original female voice and yours in the alaaps...honest! You sound equally good when you come for your part of the song.

You and Soumitra have done a good job!
