Thoughts & notes

All songs in this film were hits, but to me this is the song that stays most in my mind.

The reason is the perfect blend of everything - a powerful background and theme (losing one's love), powerful acting (excellent stuff by Aish...), great singing with perfect emotions (Chitra), wonderful lyrics (Vairamuthu), and excellent videography.

The way the choruses are intermingled with the song, with pieces of short dialogue in the middle, and the rather unique ending...everything about this song is so memorable

Here's an excellent relook at this iconic film KK from Cinema Express 

 

Memories

While the song may refer to love lost, I can relate to it in the context of lots of things gone by and things I would like to get back - youth, fun, parents...

While many people can feel empathetic while they listen to songs such as these, those who have gone through the depths of sorrow or depression can relate to the feelings much, much better. Ask me!

Connexions

It's a heartache - Bonnie Tyler - Powerful, emotional...that unique voice...Bonnie even looks a bit like Aish!
