Pookkal pookkum tharunam

It is a life-time record ... especially for me, to listen to a song for at least 50 times in the last 24 hours. Mind you, that is an average of 2 times every hour in the last 1 day. Count in the sleep hours, driving hours and office work hours. That makes it at least 6 times an hour in the remaining hours.

I should admit am addicted to the song! Without humming "pookkal pookkum tharunam", my mind seems to become restless. Oh, wow .. didn't really realize that it is still running in my mind as I type these words. What is it that attracts me so much to this song?

Almost every review I had read of Madrasapattinam in the last 2 days has praised Amy Jackson - her beauty, grace and acting skills. Of course, what do you expect from a Miss World Teen whose father works for BBC!? I for one have gotten enamored by the sharpness in her gaze during most of this song and the way certain dialogues happen through the eyes of the pair alone in this song is just brilliant.

Then there is the lyrical play itself which is as beautiful as the score by G V Prakash. The way it is sung .. hmm .. what can I say? After Ilayaraja departed from the music direction world of Tamil Cinema, very few songs have attracted me so much as this one. I think that speaks for itself.

Listen to it and am sure you will also fall in love :)
