Every once in a while, I find a Tamil song that endears itself to me.
My current favorite is Pengal Yendral Poiya Poithanaa from the film Neethaane En Ponvasantham.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has sung the track, for which the music is composed by his father Ilayaraja.
The song has a measure of depth, a rarity in Tamil films.
Oh, yeah, I enjoyed Sattru Munbu Paartha Megam Mari Poga (from the same film) as well.
In my sloshed state, it has ALL the sounds of a classic in the making.
Great! Great! Great!
By the time we came to the line Ellamey Endre Poiya Solvayya tears were running, uncontrollably, down our cheeks.
God, I hope that Mallu schmuck Gautam Menon has done justice to the picturization of this wonderful song!
The unfortunate part is Neethaane En Ponvasantham features two stars, Jeeva and that awful twit Samantha, who are utterly clueless about acting.
Now, for some more of that Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon $11.99 wine.
