Lovely poem transformed into a movie song
Really scores on the feelings it evokes - the theme, the actions (by Aish), the settings, the music, the lyrics...powerful
Wonderful voice and singing, able to convey powerful emotions that the lyrics are intended for
For making his wonderful movie
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
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!
