I am floored by Onnondonnu Chernnadi ~~

I come home everyday from office and want to watch some TV while having dinner. Easy eh...naah. I get to watch the news on my favorite AajTak and then Dad compulsively switches over to Asianet, Idea Star Singer. He has been following it since the last 2 years. I used to get bugged earlier as none of us understand Malayalam. He argued you don't need to understand the language to understand and appreciate music. Right so the remote is all yours Baba!

Yesterday I was floored completely by this song I heard on that same program.

The song gets over at 4.20/6.44



I loved it because it is this unusual combo of the female bass & male high pitch singing. I loved it for Sharath's singing, he is a talented composer and not many composers can sing like him. I actually did not mind that little strain in his voice. I don't understand Malayalam but it kinda made me visualize a man pouring his heart out to his lover and the yearning in it.

This night I listened to it countless times. I have to dedicate it to the scorpio, born in the intellect. He does not like to own up that he visits here :)

Found the lyrics so I could understand atleast a bit I mean actually just a few words. I also found the one from the film. Now I am struggling to mark the one in the film as original because Sharath must have sung it even before Shankar as he was composing it.

While I was passive to Idea Star Singer and its host Ranjini Haridas in the last 2yrs, wondering what she was doing on a singing reality show, I was pleasantly surprised by this rendition.

onnodonnu chernnaadi vaanin neelamaelaappu thedum thoomani thumbikal
doore pon mukil thoni neenthum neela neerazhi pole saandhya mounaambaram
mazhathornna paathayil nanavaarnna moodalil

[ranjini:] (onnodonnu...)
onnodonnu chernnaadi vaanin neelamaelaappu thedum thoomani thumbikal

the lady has a great voice. why are there so many sourpuss faces in the audience? most of them look constipated. is it illegal to smile or appear to be enjoying oneself?

Guffawing...Was that Bee or Jai?

I think it is Bee, coz only a Mallu can comment like this about other Mallus. I have seen people cry though :):):)
