REVIEW FOR IN MEMORY OF GHANTASALA
You've never heard a Ghantasala number too many times. And for the crammed audience in the nippy winter weather at the huge open venue of the Lalita Kala Toranam, the grand program staged in memory of the legendary cine singer was close to a spiritual experience.

Ghantasala was versatile: he could draw his admirers to the Bhakti aspect of music, he could elevate their spirits through gentle romantic numbers, and he could also create the music of pathos that caused you to ponder. And the magic of his music was recreated by many young singers attempting to reach to the pinnacles of emotional singing captured by him.

Popular singer S P Balasubramaniyam instituted a statue of Ghantasala (costing over Rs. 11 lakhs) at the Lalitha Kala Thoranam. Then, backed by an elaborate orchestral support, the evening had many songs that have attained immortality.

Ghantasala's songs were so sensitive that he could even sing a sad song of a flower - 'Pushpa Vilapam'. Nenu Oka Poola Mokka Kada Nilachi Chivaluna Komma Vanchi tells the tale of a flower being plucked from its mother plant and having its neck looped to make a garland, only to be discarded once it dries up. Such heartrending poetry of 'Karunasri' Jandhyala Papayya Sastry could be aptly rendered only by Ghantasala. And it was such music and poetry that the evening saw. All in all, it was a treat for all music lovers, and an ecstatic experience for Ghantasala fans.
