Nava Manmadhuda



This song is picturized in the movie as a playful conversation between two sisters about each other’s love. In the original version of this song, K.S.Chitra did playback for both characters. Here, we did a little experiment with Latha covering for the younger sister with her sweet expressive voice and me for the elder sister :)
The song is beautifully composed in Udayaravichandrika (aka Suddha Dhanyasi) by Keeravani. Please listen to our attempt and provide your feedback. Thank you all in advance.

Lyrics in Telugu:
నవ మన్మధుడా అతి సుందరుడా నువ్వు చూసిన ఆ ఘనుడు
అక్కా ఎవడే అతగాడు
ఇట్టే నీ మనసును దోచాడు
శ్రీ రాఘవుడా ప్రియ మాధవుడా నువ్వు వలచిన ఆ ప్రియుడు
చెల్లీ  ఎవడే అతగాడు
తుళ్ళే నీ వయసుకు జతగాడు

గోరు వెచ్చని ఊపిరే వేయి వేణువులూదగా 
తొలి ముద్దు చిందించేనే
వీణ మీటిన తీరుగా ఒళ్ళు ఝల్లనె హాయిగా
బిగి కౌగిలందించేనే
రతి రాగాలే శృతి చేసాడే
జత తాళాలే జతులాడాడే
తనువంత వింత సంగీతమేదో  పలికే

అక్కా ఎవడే అతగాడు
ఇట్టే నీ మనసును దోచాడు
శ్రీ రాఘవుడా ప్రియ మాధవుడా నువ్వు వలచిన ఆ ప్రియుడు
చెల్లీ  ఎవడే అతగాడు
తుళ్ళే నీ వయసుకు జతగాడు

వాడి చూపుల దాడితో వేడి ఆవిరి రేపెనే
నిలువెల్ల తారాడెనే
చాటు మాటున చోటులో ఘాటు కోరికలూపేనే
ఒడి చేరి తల వాల్చేనే
జడ లాగాడే కవ్వించాడే
నడుమొంపుల్లో చిటికేసాడే
అధరాలతోనే శుభలేఖ రాసే మరుడే ...

చెల్లీ  ఎవడే అతగాడు
తుళ్ళే నీ వయసుకు జతగాడు
నవ మన్మధుడా అతి సుందరుడా నువ్వు చూసిన ఆ ఘనుడు
అక్కా ఎవడే అతగాడు
ఇట్టే నీ మనసును దోచాడు
శ్రీ రాఘవుడా ప్రియ మాధవుడా నువ్వు వలచిన ఆ ప్రియుడు

Thank you friends very much for listening to our effort and your encouraging words. We both appreciate it very much!

Yes, some ragams in carnatic music have two names, not sure why.. another example is PantuvaraaLi and Kaamavardhini. Thanks again.

Also, the Tamil version by Deva has a slightly different tune for the pallavi but the charanams are almost the same. I think the Telugu song came first but please don't quote me on it :)
