Next day evening, when I was on the way back home, a song started to play with light drum beats in the background.. I was not sure of what song it was and I wanted to keep the surprise till i actually found it.. And then the voice of MSV kicked off the song.. yeah ! most of you, you might have guessed it rite.. It was 'vidai kodu engal naade' from Kannathil muthamitaal.. I've not heard this song for a long time, in fact couldnt think off when i heard it last.. so i just left the song continue.. but what was actually there was simply unbelievable..
The lyrics of the song was so mesmerizing and i had no option but to leave this song in loop for atleast 10 times.. !! The song which absolutely suited the present Srilankan scenario made me emotionally attach myself without my conscience. The line that brought tears was this
"Kann thirantha desam ange, kann moodum desam inge !! "The voice of MSV and the magic of ARR(leaving the bgm as simple as possible and letting the lyric do the work) was at its best.
Many of my frnds(Illayaraja maniacs of course) ve told me that ARR doesnt give classic hits as Illayaraja.. And for all those guys, this one song is the answer.. This song, exactly of 6 mins is an absolute pleasure to listen..
PS : When I started thinking off writing this as a post, I dint want to write about this, as I've already written a post on the SL scene. But I felt this was a post that i was emotionally attached to and so continued with the same
PPS : Guys, if you've not listened to it for a long time, please give a try now.. its on my "must-hear" list
