Recently read about a quote by Zero Babu, a long time associate of the legendary MS Baburaj, how he literally adored Talat Mehmood and his compositions, mostly his vocal style. As we listen to Thamasamenthe Varuvan, we realise this could be nothing else than a way of offering tribute to the genius of Talat Mehmood. Though both the compositions are not far away from each other in composition and melody, the situations and the emotions both convey are in their separate ways, complete, ethereal and beautiful.
