Before starting any further..i am not game for these hopelessly-neverending-immoral daily serials which are on air nowadays. This post is on the gud old days when DD used to churn up one gud serial after another, which people wished never got over. There were lot many quality comedy serials. Flight 172 (no. not sure..correct me if wrong) by mouli was a standout piece. I remember my friends mom had a cassette of all episodes recorded in their VCR. "Rayil sneham" was a masterclass of its own. But guess it paved the way for the (im)moral brigade to have their current sway over the masses with their many-to-many combinations on realtions. When RS was relayed it caused quite a stir. It was the brain child of KB (who incidentally happened to be the only one in those times with these "weird" now-so-common theme of adultery). All those serials had amazing title songs. Wonderfully written and melodiously composed. So very meaningful and in sync with the serials. Well now coming to the actual plot of the post :) - The title song of RS. It had two versions-one for "Nizhalgal" Ravi and one for the female lead whom i forgot. Guess it was Jesudas who sang the male version and no idea again abt the lady singer. But wow..watta song it was. It used to haunt me whenever i travelled on train. Somewhere in some corner of my mind it got so deeply rooted..i...i dont know how to put it in words..but i cud actually SENSE it playin on our old black n white Solidaire TV. Its jus a 4 min song. But i used to watch the serial mainly for that song. The lyricist (wont b surprised if it happens to be vairamuthu) compares a Veenai (Stringed musical instrument) to an unborn child and wonders like the child which doesnt know his father in tht serial, the veenai also doesnt know who made it. It was tuned so beautifully and sung with such a passion, it still lingers fresh in my mind like...hm..like...like the smell of an incense stick on a closed room...which continues to hang on long, even after the stick gets burnt....Vivek mathiri sollanumna... "Moodi vacha Briyaniya moonu naal kazhichi thorantha vara effect " .. :)... try listening to it and lemme know hw u feel abt it..
