“Waiting For A Punnagai Siri di.. Kanavillai Heart Beat Thirudi”
“Adada Naan Kavingan Unnai Parthu Kettu Pona Kavingan”
I can’t… I just can’t stop! Still struggling to get past the lyrics and gather words to pen this review. The much-awaited song from Mani’s Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai was released this Wednesday and it has become such a rage already. Such a shame I was a day late in listening to it and I have already been playing it on loop since morning. The Mozart of Madras, A.R. Rahman has once again worked his magic and how! Right from the opening to the last beat the song has you hooked. Jonita Gandhi sounds brilliant, and there’s ample vocal support by Haricharan and Arjun Chandy.
“Azhagiye Marry Me Marry Me…, Azhagiyeeee” (Still struggling!)
Lyricist Madhan Karky’s work comes across so effortlessly for this one. A blend of English and Tamil words perfectly fit in the pumping music frame. ‘Azhagiye’ is the highlight of the song and might I add, no other word could have fit better. The Punjabi chorus thrown right at 01:39 consumes you. Well played sir! The composition is designed in a manner that has everyone humming the lyrics. Rahman’s Midas touch adds the constant clap beats and subtle guitar strums to the track. What adds to the charm of this single is that it works as a brilliant dance number too. The song has only been released as a audio-video montage with still shots from the movie with stars Karthi Sivakumar and Aditi Rao Hydari looking stunning as ever.
Judge me all you want, my future husband, Tamilian or not, better be singing this song or songs like these to me! The first look of the song itself has set some good expectations for the movie. Highly recommending everyone to give this a listen:
