ARR @ his best

FB has been filled with status updates of videos from MTV Unplugged 2. Especially from the yet to be released Mani Ratnam movie song "Nenjukkullae". More than that song, which sounds like a remix of "Enna ithu" from Nala Damayanthi..this one is my favorite of the lot. Loved the original version from Swades. Ennamo NRI's ellariyum ARR koovi koovi India vanthirunu koopdra mathiri oru super feel irukum. But this remixed version is simply awesome. Wait till 3:58 in video when he switches over to tamil. Goosebumps guaranteed. Awesome awesome rendition and amazing clarity. Bless you Rahman for these masterpieces.

I am wordless to describe this man. Humble genius he is. especially the tamil lyrics must be touching to NRI's like you.

Incidentally, today whole day i am listening to Vijay prakash - rehman's combo in yuvraj - manmohini more. Just listen to this song if you hav'nt mind blowing song.

I did NOT like Nenjukkule... sounds like a mish mash of every other ARR song... but then all his songs kinda grow on you with repeated listening, but this song i heard once, shared on FB cos friends wanted link and that was it...

I did see the entire show on mtv site, and well, some songs were good, some were ok.... liked Phir se udd chala unplugged version
