In Love, with the song

Rented this movie ‘Madharasapattinam’ upon high recommendation from the MIL and watched it with her yesterday.

Among the many brain numbing Tamil movies I have glimpsed recently, this one, I must say, was refreshing. No mindless fights ( with Dishkum! Bushkum! sounds injected artificially to go with ugly gundas and bloody scenes ) or none of the kuthu dance songs (with Hero gyrating with his girl to the ever-so-similar beats).

The story was beautiful, though not original. It mostly felt like Lagaan, and then some Titanic.

Given the similarities, it still stood aside on its own quite nicely.

However, what really won my votes were the songs. So frikkin’ fabulous!

I promptly fell in love with this one song sung by Sonu Nigam + Saindavi and have not been able to get the tune out of my head ever since.

The guy’s voice starts like a sweet dew on a soft rose petal .. rises to the levels of bubbling hot lava …only to lovingly calm down and flow back to soothing tranquility – all just in one line.

Do not ask me the meaning of what he is saying, but the sound of it makes me go Sigh!

Go, hear the song and you’ll know. Especially the part 4:15 to 4:43

( for sound quality)

( for song picturization )

[ Only when I thought it couldn’t get any better, the hubby ,who cannot sing “Twinkle Twinkle little star” in a decent tone, sends me the link to the song and says “I’ll be tied up in ropes on the mountains, but will still run to the castle and sing this in high pitch, just for you”

High pitch?! LOL! πŸ˜€

Anyways, he is a keeper now, isn’t he? πŸ˜‰ ]

    Dunno about the song but the hubby is absolutely lovable! πŸ™‚

    A similar thing happened when I was new to Bangalore and every bus played Mungaru Malle songs.. Beautiful they were to hear, I never cared for the meaning. But Hero did translate some for me later πŸ™‚

  2. I cannot get out of head the idea of H singing the same song for u in a castle in high pitch!

    For some reason, I can only remember him from a pic of u guys in Hawai :D.. Couple that with him singing this song..

    Thanks for the link AHK. The first time I heard this song it just seemed ok. And then I played it again and I have been humming it from the past 2 days (though I cant understand a single word from this song).

    And thats a very cutesy romantic message from H I say.
