MSV TRIBUTE from ALEX IN WONDERLAND – Standup Comedy


That’s what I firmly believe. Beauty lies in simplicity, I think man. Think about this simple instrument. You know the name of the instrument? It is called the Double Bongos, right? One of the simplest percussion rhythm instruments. And you can buy this for 700 bucks in Chennai even today. And will you believe if I say, this simple instrument, ruled Tamil Film Music, for half a century, man? I’m not exaggerating. For 50 years, every other super hit song that came in
Tamil film music, had only this instrument as the core rhythm instrument. This sound, I’m sure you can all recall. (plays the opening rhythm of Paartha Nyabagam song) This sound ruled Tamil film music for half a century. This music director, we all adore, he will live forever. He’s living forever. He made amazing, wonderful, soulful songs. The melodies will be out of the world. The percussion: just bongos and nothing else. Of course I’m talking about, the King of Melodies, M S VISWANATHAN! M S Viswanathan! People even teased him. What sir, for 50 years, you lazed around with
just the bongos. I think MSV wants to tell us one thing very clearly. Beauty lies in simplicity man. Wonderland lies in simplicity. Even on Bongos, he wouldn’t complicate. He would not go into the complex rhythm patterns and all. Just the 4-beat rhythm for every song, ya. This 4 beat… One, two, there, four, that’s all. Whatever maybe the situation, Whatever maybe the emotion, that he has to show, Anything that ever happens in any story, For anybody’s life, MSV has captured anything and everything in this
4-beat rhythm. One, two, three, four. I went to get some fresh air A poem fell into my hand! She snatched it away from me Now, where did you go away baby? I just went to get some fresh air A poem fell into my hand! So romance is building up. He goes to the girl with the poem and proposes. She reads it. Here it goes! O O Walk slowly, walk slowly. Don’t hurt your tender body! Your jasmine feet will hurt and become achy! Won’t it disturb your decked up beauty? Ahaaaa…. Ririiii rariiiii…. Tharararira…. O O Walk slowly, walk slowly. Don’t hurt your tender body! So the romance is working out slowly, they are starting to meet very often. They are going on a date night followed by
pubbing and dancing.. There she goes!
What a pretty face! Here he comes!
He is so nice! It’s getting dark! It’s time for the moon! Next is wedding knot!
Such a sweet bond! What else do we want? This is going to go for ever and ever! So everything worked out ok, they get married. First night. First night is happening. Milk and fruits have made it to your hands Smile with those pearl like lips… Walking like this pretty pleasant peahen! May you be in blissful serene! Then life takes a turn. That is what is life right? Sometimes it will take a turn,
it is not pleasant, breakup happens. She goes away. She walks away from the relationship. What to do right? You’ve to move on. Life goes on. And when life goes on, beat goes on too. There she went flying! Leaving me behind! She snatched and walked away my two eyes,
making me so blind! Sometimes life will take a very harsh turn. You wouldn’t even be ready for it, but it’ll happen. You’ve to take it right? What to do? That is life. Death happens. She passes away. Can you believe it?
She passes away. What to do?
Death is part of life. Inevitable. We’ve to face it. Because the show must go on right? When the show goes on, the beat goes on too. O O O! Gone is gone, you let it go! Noone’s around forever, you gotta let them go! Gone is gone, you let it go! But this is Tamil Cinema guys! She will come back as a ghost! Yesss! The girl is back. Yes baby, the babe is back, the same girl, so same beat continues. Don’t you remember seeing me? The drama of tender age is what I blame! Together we had such a passing time! Will my heart pass over this lovely hymn! Don’t you remember seeing me? The drama of tender age is what I blame! MSV everybody! MSV! Beauty lies in simplicity. That’s what I firmly believe.
