Movie Music Monday: A.R. Rahman triple play

Film Flam Flummox

For my first installment of Movie Music Monday, a triple taste of this catchy, soothingly laid back groove composed by A.R. Rahman as it appears in director Gautam Vasudev Menon's three different versions of his same romantic drama: "Omana Penne" ("My Beloved") in the 2010 Tamil language original Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (Will You Cross the Skies for Me?); "Kundanapu Bomma" ("Beautiful Doll") in the simultaneously shot Telugu language alternate cut Ye Maaya Chesave (What Magic Have You Done to Me?); and "Phoolon Jaisi" ("Like Blossoms") in the Fox-produced Hindi language version released in cinemas in February of this year, Ekk Deewana Tha (There Was a Crazy Guy). While all three takes use the same tune and are made by the same director, the differences in setting, staging, and choreography, in addition to the different approaches by the different pairs of actors, make for an interesting study.
