Everybody knows that this song is based on raagas, Nattakurunji and Sahana. But when this album was released, I didn’t even know the raaga Nattakurunji, which incidentally has now become one of my favourite raagams!! And neither did I identify the Sahana part in this song at that time! It was only after a few years that I was able to exactly identify the raagas in the song and started enjoying the classical beauty in it. So, this song being based on classical raagams was not why I liked it instantly on seeing the trailer itself – Aishwarya’s teasing looks, a blushing Tabu, a handsome Ajith, the colour of the costumes & finally, the music! – I liked it all! Later when I saw the entire song, I liked it even more. I would put this song in the category of those Rahman’s songs that have been picturized very well. What about you?
Incidentally, the very first time when I watched the trailer of Alaipayuthey (Snehidhane song) was right after watching the trailer of Kandukondain Kandukondain featuring this song. At that time, I liked this trailer more than Alaipayuthey! :O Anyway, I really wish Rajeev Menon takes a movie soon and Rahman composes music for it. Hope that happens soon!
