25 Favourite Tamil Songs from 2007

11. Azhaigalin Osaigal

Movie: Rameshwaram
Music: Niru
Singers: Haricharan, Kalyani
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

Though on initial listening, it sounds like a pleasant romantic song, the melody actually makes a tight rope walk between the romance and pathos. With the breezy strings and pleasant orchestration taking care of sweet romance, the pathos feels is hidden deep inside the melody itself. Especially with the way Haricharan and Kalyani sing the melody, one can never say where the sweetness ends and the pathos starts in the melody.

According to me, this is definitely one of THE best songs of the year. Great tune, great orchestration & emotion-filled singing.

Prakash - I too feel the same. If you like this song, then listen to Niru's private album 'Moongil Nila', it is full of such melodies
