Music gives life to any movie. For the recently released Thamasha, Asha Jeevan and Rex Vijayan gave that back bone. At the theatre, Asha Jeevan’s voice made audience emotional and brought them closer to the movie through the song Kaanumbol Ninne. For him, Thamasha is not at all anything funny, but a dream that came true – an outcome of struggles and failures he had gone through over the past nine years. Interestingly, this passionate singer has never learnt music though he has been associated with the field since 2013. And, he has made his presence felt in almost all areas of music – from composing to singing – through short films.

His life changed when he sang the cover of Uyirin Nadhiye from the movie Mayanadhi. Rex Vijayan noticed his husky voice and it opened doors to Thamasha. “I sang the cover of Mayanadhi because I felt that I could bring out Rex’s music very well with my voice, and it may open a path to my dream,” says Jeevan.

 

It was his mother Asha, whose name Jeevan has fondly fixed with his own, who found his talent in music. Jeevan says he is grateful to his family and friends for being with him during tough times. “I can’t pick any of them because each one helped me in different stages of my life,” says Jeevan, who is in love with guitar, his link to music.

Ask him about the response to Kaanumbol Ninne, and he says, “The most memorable award is the call from Rex Vijayan. He said, ‘I don’t want to know about the impact of the song or how people will accept you as a playback singer; to me, you have done a great job and the song is so close to my heart,” says Jeevan, who wishes to explore the world of film music more.
