Delight to disdain

<sniff> <sniff>

This morning at office started with the a new malayalam music album: Keerthi Chakra. I added the songs to my iTunes collection, and pretty much jumped off my seat to see the names of the singers. Especially the name "Kailash Kher". Just mentioned his name in a blog yesterday, and a song sung by him in Malayalam? "Amazing", I thought. The rest of the artists had my next favorite: "Karthik" (Not my roommate, though he sings well). "Aha!", I was delighted!

Double clicked on Kaveri Nadiye. Karthik's voice reverberated. But then, familiarity came to the fore. "Kaaveri Nadiye..." echoed with "Pooncholai Kiliye..." from tamil movie Aran. Was abt to do more factor analysis when the great Shankar's (Bangan, Donkar) one time comment about Aran clicked: "Unga Mohanlal thaa nadichirukkan"... "Worst", I thought. And yes, both movies have "Joshua Sreedhar" as music director... "Suthamada"... So much so for the height of anticipation for a new Kailash Kher song...
