Day 18 into ARR fever, yet another permanent song from my play list. Yet another masterpiece by the genius composer.
From the movie Kandukondain Kandukondain, this song conveys loss and melancholy. The protagonist, played by actress Aishwarya Rai, discovers the man she loved to be engaged with another woman while she is there to record a song for a movie produced by that woman. With the sorrow of losing her love, the song comes out beautifully, as the song is actually about lost love.
Sung by the brilliant singer KS Chitra, this song is a timeless classic. That tone and depth she brought into that song can never be matched. Not many people attempt to sing this song live in contests or otherwise due to high pitching. Moreover, to justice to that soulful rendering one has to possibly be in that situation!
