Saiesan Muthulingam – Canadian Youth in Vijay TV’s “Super Singer 3”

Saiesan Muthulingam – Canadian Youth in Vijay TV’s “Super Singer 3”

Saiesan Muthulingam, a young artist with a keen interest in singing, acting, dancing and composing is currently representing Tamil Canadians in Vijay TV’s “Super Singer 3.”

“Saiesan has a unique presence on stage, one that he is able to switch on for the performance and immediately switch back off when in day-to-day life. His mix of true talent and simple humility is well appreciated among the great singers and musicians of the GTA. Despite his musical achievements for his age, Saiesan is always down-to-earth and full of positive attitude. Moreover, Saiesan’s potential as a great musician of the future was recognized by North Indian audiences when he performed several Hindi film songs at various events. Not only is Saiesan a singer, but he also plays the guitar, keyboard, saxophone, flute and harmonica. In his singing and playing, Saiesan is able to catch on to notes, lyrics, and music very quickly and retain the most minute details for recall at another time.”
Saiesan stands as a role model to the young Tamil artists in our community and has definitely made us Canadian Tamils proud. Canadian Tamil Youth Alliance wishes Saiesan Muthulingam the best of luck in his singing journey on Vijay TV’s “Super Singer 3.”

GV Prakash Criticizes Vijay TV Music Awards

GV Prakash has come out in the open to discuss an important issue. The film industry and the media are surprised by how GV Prakash has outspokenly criticized Vijay TV and their (Music) Awards ceremonies. GV Prakash tweeted about his dissatisfaction with the channel’s awards. Also, there have been criticisms on the channel pleasing a few stars to have their extended cooperation. GV Prakash tweeted, “Worst award functions conducted by some channels and very ingenuine awards given just to please stars and increase their TRP… Injustice!”

GV Prakash was apparently displeased with the importance given to Yuvan Shankar Raja. Although, he expressed his apparent displeasure due to bias, many a technician in the Tamil film industry has also expressed displeasure in the award functions.

Some of the directors, technicians, editors, cinematographers and actors have all criticized Vijay TV awards and music awards, although some did anonymously. “They are just for the TRPs. Why would Kamal Hassan be given Best Lyricist Award for a failure film as Manmadhan Ambu? Has he written better lyrics than Vaali and Vairamuthu?”

“Yuvan Shankar Raja was given many awards as was given to AR Rahman. Why was SS Kumaran not given any awards for Kalavaani? The channel’s prime focus is TRP rating. If you have Kamal Hassan, AR Rahman and Yuvan Shankar Raja on screen, the TRP increases.”

“Adada Mazhaida and Thuli Thuli Thuli from Paiyaa have also come under criticism for they were not the best of songs of last year’s albums. The channel has two categories as “Best” and “Popular” which ensures that they please all sorts of technicians and bring them on the stage for the TRPs,” says a source.

The real meaning of awards is lost. They are no longer the credible recognition for art, music, movies and entertainment. The commercialization, commercial and ulterior motives of award committees have brought down the value of awards.

“They create categories on their own depending upon what happens in the industry and who agrees to attend the function. “Neela Vaanam” was awarded the “Best song sung by an actor”. If a director sings a song this year, they will have a category as “Best song sung by a director”, next year, and so will it be with “Editors, Cinematographers, and Producer,” notes humorously, a source.
