Stars Take Their Pick in Amrita TV's Star Choice
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: Star Choice is the first programme in Malayalam television to be anchored by a famous film actor/actress, in which the star presents a collection of his favourite film songs and explains the reasons why they have left such deep imprints on his heart. Starting 27th December it will be telecast every Sunday at 11.30 am.

A virtual torrent of 'special songs' may breach the dam of the Star's memories, but he can pick up only 5 from the lot. These cherished hits- which can be from Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil or English - should be drawn from five different phases of his life :one that caught his fancy in childhood ; another that appealed to his adolescence ; a third that captivated him in his youth ; one which he finds fascinating now, at the present moment ; and the last, a song that bewitched his ardent heart during the days of his courtship in his 'season of love' . Each song is prefaced by an introduction that clearly shows why these 5 are his chosen ones - it may be the wording of his lyrics; the magic of its melody or some precious memory associated with it.

A young Jayaram was slated to sing the song 'Poovum Prasadam' on stage for his School Day, but the 8 year old was so awed by the occasion, he forgot his lines and stuttered through the lyrics. The next day, his friends had a whale of a time teasing him with a new nickname 'poo poo aa aa'. Though the song was an embarrassment then , Jayaram looks back with laughter through this number.

'Sanyasini nin Punnyasramathil' makes Navya Nair recall her childhood when current cuts were a regular part of the evening schedule. When the house was plunged into darkness and the family gathered around the dim flicker of the lamp, her father used to sing this Vayalar classic to while away the time. This song which brings back the sweetness of her childhood, holds pride of place in Navya's list.

Star Choice is thus an unusual film song based show, wherein a star from the celluloid world plays anchor on the small screen and hosts a selection of his personal preferences with anecdoted explanations for his choice, that gives us brief autobiographical sketches from the pages of his past life.
