I just love this song. It never breaks or falters at any point, I mean right from the moment it starts with that breezy flute. Soft beats then start flowing in sync with the voice of Shankar Mahadevan inducing the subtle pain of love through the words “என் நெஞ்சுக்குள் காதல் வலி”. The protagonist being a man of few words , the tune really pitches in with that sort of pain helped by the picture perfect art and camera work.
During the last few lines, those drops of a distant echo at the end of every line – Simply beautiful!
My favorite part in the song is when the beats stop, leaving way to the verses,
விழி பட்ட இடம் இன்று ஒளிப்ட்ட சிலையாக
இதுதானோ காதல் என்று அறிந்தேன் அடி…
The beauty of this song goes all uphill from there. A song that flows like a river with a slight hush throughout. One of Yuvan’s best!
