A Walk Down Rahman Lane by Govind Vasantha

If you are here for the first time, please read this post.


One of my most favourite songs of ARR is Oru Deivam Thantha Poove from Kannathil Muthamittal

I was in school when it released. And it struck me like a lightning because of the wild nature of the melody and orchestration. The rhythm pattern was very organic and unlike anything I have ever heard before and it almost sounded like thunder to me. And the best part is , it's not just a wild random tune that you find hard to connect to, instead it touches you so deeply that it  makes you cry. I even get scared listening to it. It was the first time I experienced all these emotions all in one song.

The shift of notes flows smoothly like a river. And of course Chinmayi just elevated the poignancy of the song to a level that will push you to stay away from the song.. oh the irony!
