The title inspired from a show which used to appear in a Malayalam channel years back. The only serial I used to wait for just for the title track and then just get lost in the very feel of it. ‘Shamanathalam’ , directed by the much respected and talented one, Shyamaprasad Sir, was not just any other serial. It had this so close to life feel.. soul stirring music and BGM..
How I wish everyone could understand ‘Malayalam’ as a language just to understand the depth and intensity of this song and the out of the world lyrics. But music speaks this universal language which every soul can comprehend.. One song that captures the various seasons of your heart. Chithra chechi’s best non film song anytime. If not for Manu aka Chai D Celeb I would not have been reminded of this fantabulous song after so many years. Thanks a trillion Manu and thanks to those amazing memories.. Have been listening to this nonstop for almost four days now and still can't get enough of it...serene..divine..haunting..that is 'Manveenayil' for you...
The whole flow of the song just makes it stand out from the rest of the many million songs that we hear and forget. There is not much jazz. Just the right amount of BGM that is required where the song and the lyrics are given priority and not the kind of magic ‘software’ plays these days.
One song which will bring you back to those memories which you would have believed that you have actually let go off.. but still are residing somewhere in the unknown depths of your soul..It actually feels like getting up from a long deep sleep and you still find yourself at a place from where you had once ‘moved on’..But when you try touching that reality once again you kind of realize that it was again nothing but just a dream..
“The tender word forgotten, The letter you did not write.. What moves me about? Perhaps this is our strange and haunting paradox..that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement”
