KV Anand, cinematographer-turned-director seems to have a knack for churning out top quality commercial cinema. The secret to his success is not just the foot-tapping numbers featured in his films but the exotic destinations he shoots his songs in. These lush locales are never the typical run-of-the-mill spots but hitherto unseen lands that are captured lovingly for posterity through his lens. The audiences feel like they have been transported to a dream land for the price of a movie ticket and needless to say they keep coming back for more. Here is a look at the best of his songs shot in places that are tucked away in remote corners of the globe and which are jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

Kaalai Arumbi from Kana Kandaen: This was the first song which showcased KV Anand’s flair for capturing beauty and music in a glorious blend. The song rendered by Srinivas and Kalyani was mellifluous and the superb spot where Srikanth and Gopika danced around was an opiate for the senses.

Nenje Nenje from Ayan: This song was a tribute to the lovely Suraj Hua track from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham but done in KV Anand’s impeccable style. Shot somewhere in South Africa and Zanzibar, Harish Raghavendra and Mahathi lent their voices to Suriya and Tamannah who set the mercury rising as they allowed the heat of their passion to envelop them amidst the scorching sands of the desert.

Ven Paniye from Ko: Ven Paniye was shot in China and it captured the mystical beauty to the Orient like never before and was a big draw for the audience.

Amuli Thumali from Ko: There were many factors that worked for Ko, but this song shot in Norway, the land of the rising sun was simply phenomenal. KV Anand filmed this number in Trolltunga, Sognefjorden, and Kjeragbolten capturing the dewy beauty of the region.
