Movie Music Monday: "Will You Cross the Skies for Me?"

Film Flam Flummox

I've already shone the Movie Music Monday spotlight on a tune from A.R. Rahman's score for Gautham Vasudev Menon's films Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa / Ye Maaya Chesave / Ekk Deewana Tha, but the last week I've had the title tune for the first and best version of the film, 2010's Tamil language Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, running through my head. Translated into English as "Will You Cross the Skies for Me?", this beautiful romantic tune and scene, featuring the gorgeously poetic lyrics of Thamarai, shows how this version film gets it right between all three: how Rahman's hypnotic melody, Thamarai's evocative words, and Karthik's soothing croon symbiotically support the yearning chemistry, erotic electricity, and sensual tension between Silambarasan and Trisha.

A review of the Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa Blu-ray is coming soon.
