Kannil Dhagam - Achamundu Achamundu

There are songs that grow on you.You listen the first time - It sounds different ; second time - it seeps into you ; third time - you are hooked to it .

One such song is the recent " Kannil Dhagam" from the movie Achamundu Achamundu. The song marks the comeback of Karthik Raja ( A brilliant composer who disappeared overnight) & the debut of carnatic music singer " Sowmya". The song is marked by excellent orchestration, haunting voice ( Almost as if Sowmya sang 10 feet away from the Mic) and beautiful lyrics.

The song seems to be based on the Raga Charukesi ( based on my limited knowledge of carnatic music) , which is a versatile raga but rarely used to express sorrow in Tamil film music.

Listen to the song here:
