Maryan ( Music ) ::: Rahman Uninhibited

Maryan is Rahman uninhibited! I mean when Rahman is not constraint tightly to the medium - the masala movie. Though the songs are woven around the theme of the movie, it is not restricting him much. And the surprise element is Rahman is contributing to the lyrics department too :) Though I see his name on the Satyameva Jayte credits as writer, for a movie, it was a pleasant surprise. And man, the songs he co-written are awesome! Let's listen to the songs one by one...

Kadal ( Music Review ) – This Sea Is Salty And Sweet

Director : Mani Ratnam
Music : A R Rahman
Lyrics : Vairamuthu & Karky

Magic happens whenever A R Rahman joins hands with Mani Ratnam. I think there is more than harmony, understanding, freedom and all. They make music FOR the movie. Its story, its soul in mind. Rather than a defined prescription – one shava shava song, one drama song, one patriotic etc. And it shows. If the soundtrack has so much to tell about the movie, what will be there in the movie Mani Ratnam picturise… Let us go to the music for the time being :)

You've Got Mail - Great Cyber Friend Can Be Real :)

Directed by : Nora Ephron
Studio : Warner Bros.
Starring : Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan

Well, this is fairly an old movie. I mean, released in 1998 makes it a good 14 years old. To me, the movie is more clearer and close to life now! When I watched it during engineering, email was very new thing and the ‘expensive’ dial-up browsing was so rationed that having a chat friend or, even visiting a chatroom was a remote possibility. Later, once it becomes less expensive and I got more of it, I too had my share of cyber friends, so much that I got enough things to put in a story ;)

Black Swan - Intense, Sad And Haunting

Directed by : Darren Aronofsky
Starring : Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis
Distributed by : Fox Searchlight Pictures

The story may be about split personality or the agony and tragedy of a perfectionist or the story of a girl who fight against all odds to prove herself. I got another viewpoint about the movie. The stress and pain one goes through at work!

It's been long since I wrote anything on these pages. Life kept me busy. :)However, I couldn't help find a few minutes to write about this well-made film "Kahaani". 

IF you haven't seen it yet, you are missing on a very well- made Bollywood thriller. Mark my words. This movie has an attention grabbing script. And well chosen characters.
