Thank you Achinthya.
Unni Aarariro from Avaludey Raavukal was one composition that, at one hand sounded so perfect that it felt out of place in AT Ummer‘s musical style and immediately set forth amber lights and faint sirens in your head 🙂 Some how one just felt that it had ‘crossed borders’ before it reached AT Ummer‘s harmonium.
Unni Aarariro is one of the most lilting lullabies ever, personally, from Malayalam Cinema. And with RD Burman’s original tune, and with lyrics by Bichu Thirumala so universally perfect , it somehow magically acquired the cult status it enjoys now.
So, thank you Achinthya for serving the ‘original dish’ on a platter.
