YUVVRAAJ - A RAHMAN WONDER !


Hey all !
Good day . Lot is on my draft .. safely lying untouched un finished . Yes i am tempted to close that by penning those precious words and paint in more emotions, heart and rythmn and play it here as a post to you ! But then i realise there is something very special waiting to be penned ....Yuvvraaj !!!!!!!!Yippee ! Yes, our dearest Rahman ji is back !

Music is a way of life for many ... Rahman ji has always made this very beautiful ..just splendid .Yuvvraaj is a musical film by Subash Ghai , with whom Rahman has previously given his one of the most superb(would be a simple word to explain the success of that album) album 'Taal' .
Now here comes Yuvvraaj (numerology;)) an ARR venture which is just as perfect as any other Rahman note...

This musical journey has 9 phases  and each one composed in a style that is a trademark Rahman ji's (ek dam solid!) music . 

The first one Main Hoon Yuvvraaj  is a intro song kind for Salman - It has Salman speaking
and the fifth of Beethoven prelude.

Tu Meri Dost Hain  is one of the best numbers which has Rahman ji ( small but my most fav part) , Shreya and Benny Dayal.  It is the easily pleasable number and i am sure for those who would prefer melodious style of music would surely fall for this !

Tu Muskura
 is again another soulful melody by Alka ji and Javed Ali .Though i liked this one
for its music i cant rate this as 1st among the others.
The higher range of Alka ji is a lil too shrill which makes it lose its original charm.


Mastam Mastam is a joyous track perfectly sung by Sonu ji , Naresh and Benny and Alka ji .
A track similar to 'The road goes on... and ever ever on.' from  the Lord of the Rings !
Its a easily lovable number and is a happy happy song .

Zindagi - Wow ! Srinivas ji is amazing and after his earlier Kaisi hai yeh ruth in
Dil Chahtha hai for Shankar Ehsaan Loy , this is a super duper song .
The style of his rendering is just so pleasant that one wants to just keep listening to
that on and on ..

Dil Ka Rishta , I just loved this for this a fast and more aggressive number and one that has come out beautifully . Sung by Sonu ji and a few part by Roop Kumar Rathod and my fav Rahman!!

The entire song just drags you and i really love this . Rahman ji's part is just so great that i played this track continously many a times.

Manmohini morey
is a fusion kind of Hindustani classical and bit of western touch and this sandwich is 'delicious' too ! Vijay Prakash is the singer.

Shano Shano
is again a "Pappu cant dance' kinda track( not in terms of tune but the style is a Disco kind). Frankly i loved Pappu the 1st time i heard but Shano didnt really pull as the others did but then since its Rahman music it would really seep in on to your soul each time we keep listening.... :) and the last track is the Remix of Shano Shano !!
 
This a great album where Rahman has done such a beautiful orchestration  and the song does not fade away .

This Musical extravaganza is again gonna rock the charts and yes the hearts of all true lovers of Music ... hmm .. Rahmaniacs out there would go crazy !! As usual you are just gonna say " WOW what a music and a genius!!'  cos that's how Rahman's song just sinks deep in your soul.
So all folks Happy singing , happy listening and happy times ahead . 

Yours truly,
Rahmaniac !:)
Meenu !

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…
