Yesudas could not sing it even after several attempts… that song was in Mohanlal film: Ouseppachan (Watch video)

Ouseppachan entered Malayalam film music industry by composing the background score for the film ‘Eenam’. Later, he gifted Malayalam cinema with a number of melodic songs.

For the past three decades Ouseppachan’s music has been having a respectable place in Malayalam film industry. Veteran singer K J Yesudas has breathed life into most of those touching songs.

But there was a line in a film song that even Yesduas could not sing. It was a speedy starting line (Kalakala mozhukum…) of the song Punchiriyude Poovilikalil... from the film ‘Unnikale orukatha parayam…’

In a special interview given to Kaumudy TV, Ouseppachan recalls that incident. “Dasettan tried to sing it several times; I had sung the track earlier. At the time of practice done in slow pace, he could sing it easily but at the given speedy rythm, he found it difficult to render it.

Then he told me that we could take the song first and he would come back and record the line later after practising a home. Later, I came to know that he made 15 copies of that line and gave them to 15 persons; none of them could sing it.

Later he called me up and said that no one could sing and asked me to sing it…”
