Namakamey - Komaram Puli Song Review - Idlebrain
Nammakameeyara is the only track in this soundtrack that I went back to instantaneously after the first listening. Despite slight traces of Aparanji Madanude [Merupu Kalalu] in the opening portions and overall lyrical essence of O Paalanhaare [Lagaan] this is a strikingly soothing prayer track in a magical confluence of gifted voices like Chitra and Madhushree. Wonder what kind of contribution Harini made to this track for she is barely audible. Rahman is probably the only contemporary music director that has composed quite a few delectable devotional/bhajan tracks, in commercial films, like O Paalanhaare [Lagaan], Ishwar Allah [1947 – Earth], Ek Tu Hi [Pukar], Aparanji Madanude [Merupu Kalalu], Pal Pal [Swades], Man Mohana [Jodhaa Akbar], Piya Haji Ali [Fizaa], Khwaja Mere Khwaja [Jodhaa Akbar], Arziyan [Delhi 6], Maherbaan [Ada], each outshining the other.
