veLLai pookkaL

Complete silence apart from A R Rahman singing VeLLai pookaL! In a state of bliss that cannot be described in words πŸ™‚

veLLai pookkaL ulagam engum malargave
vidiyum bhoomi amaidhikaaga vidigave

Good Morning folks!

    The first signs of a new voice in A R Rahman – The first time we heard it we couldnt believe it was Rahman singing! Undoubtedly the best song he’s sung himself (along with Dil Se Re)… Again, only the magician Mani Ratnam can get this out of him!

  19. Aparna said,

    I agree with everything you have said except for the best song he’s sung πŸ™‚ I sometimes feel ‘Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera’ is his best….Difficult to call one song as the best!

  20. Bharath said,

    August 22, 2007 at 10:03 am

    Ach – You caught me there… Hmm Ye Jo Des Tera, Humma Humma, Tere Bina, even something very rarely heard like New York Nagaram… And of course Vande Mataram…

    Why I feel Vellai Pookal is his best is coz it was the first time he had moved from screaming out his songs (Humma Humma et al) to a soft melodious song… And more often than not the first song sticks…

  21. Aparna said,

    August 23, 2007 at 1:33 pm

    Yeah his voice did sound like never before in VeLLai pookkaL
