From a thundering bullet to a Romantic symphony... / by Karthik Rajagopal

Here is one of a very different pre-wedding story I shot. As with any client I try to talk a lot and find out interesting things about them before I touch my camera. Both groom and the bride come from a family with a music background. When tried to know more details, I found that Sudarsan's passion was about riding his bullet. You can say it is his first love. Subashini on the other had was a passionate singer. I could have always made her sing to the bullet's tunes :P But, I wanted better options. I knew Sudarshan's dad for a long time when I was working with L&T and I know that he is passionate about music. When I asked him if he can play any musical instrument, Viola !!! there gets the gap filled up... Violin :) Now let me show how they found their love in each other :)

Once upon a time there lived an young man Sudarshan whose passion was riding a bullet and playing violin. He was a solitary reaper. Behold him single in the field :D



Thaniye thannan tahniye naan kaathu kaathu nindren... I wave of melancholy sweeps over him...

Will no one tell me what she sings? -
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
For old, unhappy, far-off things,
And battles long ago
— William Wordsworth

At the same time there lived a girl Subashini who spent all her time in reading books and singing songs.

Subashini as a cheerful girl remains a solitary reaper enjoying her own songs...

Love’s gift cannot be given, it waits to be accepted.
— Rabindranath Tagore

Thundering beats of the bullets show down to the tunes of a violin... The melodies of the girl and the tunes of the violin unite.

Hey, are you the one I was waiting for???

The melodies develop to hymns of love...


They make his bullet a party to their romance...


They take a new path together... A new life...

They decide to get married...

He takes her on his bullet to his home seeking permission for marriage...

Periyorgalaal nichyikka pattadu.

Artin pottu ambu vittachu periyavanga aasirvadhatodu !!!

No Indian wedding happens until the families unite... Here you see two families become One

It din't take a long time before they could dance..

Evanga sendhanga... enna thaiya vittangappa... Dhud Dhud Dhud..... Dum Dum Dum Dum... :)
