Baba Kalyani

After a long time (or maynot be that long), i managed to watch a malayalam movie. I was a little skeptical going to watch 'Baba Kalyani', since it had the same or similar set of people who brought Thandavam and other 'verbosious' Mohan Lal movies. But this was surprisingly different.

There was an attempt to make it slick, and i think they wasted a lot precious film doing so. If you could tolerate the slick cuts through out the movie, then it was nice crime investigation film. Of course there are the usual desi film style cinematic licenses that have been used once in a while. But overall, its rise to the standards of the CBI series.

And the song 'Kai Niraye Venna tharam' is out of the world. Or maybe i am biased, being a big fan of MohanLal, his screen mom Kaviyoor Ponamma, but most of all the one and only one Krishna.

Enjoy the song, snagged from YouTube.

Ente Khalbile

This one of the songs from the movie 'Classmates'. The movie itself, left a very lasting effect on you, and the songs in the movie were good too. I have been humming this for a few days now.



Ente khalbile vennilaavu nee
nalla paattukara
thattam ittu njaan kathu vachoru
en mulla mottiloorum
athoronnu vende

ente koottu kaara
sultaante chelu kaara

ninte punchiri paalinullile
ninte punchiri paalinullile
panchasaaraya aavaam
ninte nenjile thaafumottumaayi
ennumenteya aavam
oppanaykku nee kooduvaan
mailaanchi monchonnu kaanuvaan
enthu maathramenna
agrahangale modi vachuvenno

Ente khalbile vennilaavu nee
nalla paattukara
thattam ittu njaan kathu vachoru
en mulla mottiloorum

ente koottu kaara
sultaante chelu kaara

thottu meettuvaan ulla thanthrikal
thottu meettuvaan ulla thanthrikal

Ente khalbile vennilaavu nee
