Events/schedule - Mar '05

Vidhu is on back-to-back trips for the next few weeks. Only the major events are listed:

- First on the list is a show in Dubai
- Next there is a Singapore show, I believe this is his first time in Singapore
- End of the month is a trip to London, this is a 4-5 days programme

The US show seems to be coming back to life. It could be re-scheduled to sometime in September if the visa issues are sorted out soon.

Recorded for Ilayaraja

This is for a movie called "Twinkle twinkle little star".

Vidhu Prathap was in Chennai last week to record for this movie. The amusing thing about recording for Ilayaraja is that the maestro himself ends up singing some of the best songs in the movie - not sure if this is because of some technical reason or if he just liked his own music enough to sing it himself. And of course, who has the guts to question "the little king" ? :)

This movie is getting some publicity with its multi-lingual (Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Telugu) scope and new movie making technology being used. This is a dicey story-line, so it will take some story-telling to pull this off. No amount of technical wizardry can substitute a weak story or weak direction. Need to wait and see how it develops.
