Nagavalli’s Voice

| 9 Comments

One of our hobbies is over-analyzing Manichitrathazhu. If you recently arrived at this site, you should read the following articles

One of the points that has come up often is regarding the voice behind Ganga and Nagavalli. Was Shobhana’s National Award justified? ¬†Doesn’t that credit go to the dubbing artiste Bhagyalakshmi as well?

As the debate continues, please watch this clip. This shows Bhagyalakshmi giving voice to the most crucial scene in the movie. You see her start as Ganga and then transform into Nagavalli. It is absolutely stunning. It is very rarely that we get to see such a scene(Please fast forward to 10th minute).

  1. The voice was absolutely critical.. Everytime I see this movie, I get convinced we will never get to see a more perfect movie in Malayalam.

  2. Looking at Shobhana, I wouldn’t be naive to believe that she put less efforts than Bhagyalakshmi..The question is – chicken or the egg came first ? IMO dubbing artist follows the actor / actress and hence, full credits to shobhana for her performance.

    • dear, sabdham koodi chernnale oru kadhapathrathinu poornatha kaivarikayullu..dbng ine kurichu ariyathathu kndanu ingane parayunnathu…oru roomil irunnukondu sabdham kondu act cheyyukayanu dubbing artists,

  3. Though in terms of points for acting, Shobana’s score goes down since the fact is that she didn’t provide the voice for her character. When compared to Ed Norton in Primal Fear, who also played a character with multiple personality, Norton can be given full credit for his creation of bringing to life the character he portrayed. When it comes to Ganga, two people were involved and so both of them should be given credit.

  4. NagaValli’s voice is not done by BhagyaLakshmi..its done by AnandaValli…Bhagyalakshmi dubbed for Ganga (Shobhana)

  5. “One of our hobbies is over-analyzing Manichitrathazhu.” lol

    Please continue over-analyzing Manichitrathazhu, I love it!
