Mannipaaya - Vinnaithandi Varuvaya

Shreya’s first Tamil song of the year is released.Yes,the wait has finally ended.The audio of Vinnaithandi Varuvaya was released today at Chennai.Some days ago,we got preview of all the songs,just of 30 seconds duration.After hearing the preview of Mannipaaya,I couldn't understand the song fully.Anywayz,as the audio has released,I am here to write about the song.As you all know,the song is titled "Mannipaaya" and is a duet with AR Rahman and the music is ofcourse by the Oscar Winner "AR Rahman".

Before proceeding,let me give a big thanks to Nightingale Shreya for showering her wishes on my birthday 11th January.I am really thrilled by her down to earth nature.She already gave me a gift on my birthday....any guesses??Well,its Mannipaaya.The song I was eagerly waiting since the day Shreya tweeted about its recording.What else a devotee could have wished as a gift for his birthday !

Before writing anything about the song,let me frankly tell that I always get problem in explaining the songs of AR Rahman - Shreya combo.They are so magical that you don't get words for praising them.Anywayz,let me start with the duration.Few things which made me jump from my seat are : Shreya's name on the CD's label, a long 7 minutes track & having a duet of Shreya with Rahman .I always wished to have their duet,though we heard them together in Tu Hi Meri Dost but we got to hear very less of them.I couldn't write anything about this song without knowing the main theme.Asked my friends and the word came was "forgiveness".Particularly,the word "Mannipaaya" means "Will you forgive me?".Since the song is all about forgiveness,the song has to be sad but its not so.It has little shades of both sadness and romance.Shreya starts with the song with her honey soaked voice followed by beautiful light percussions and amazing humming by Shreya and Rahman.Shreya is sounding extremely sweet in the song(You have to hear her rendition to understand my words).The scale of the song changes a little when Rahman begins with the song.Well,thats the speciality of his compositions.The song is supported by beautiful percussions.Its really amazing to see Shreya rendering the word "Mannipaya" in different styles.After the mesmerising interlude,Shreya starts with the first stanza.The stanzas are magic !!.Mark thw word :magic".I can;t write anythinbg else about the stanzas.The song is a pure magic.I won't call it as a second Munbe Vaa but its "first Mannipaya".Both the songs are completely different.After the first stanza,the chorus starts and the tune is really haunting and firs perfectly in the song.The way chorus starts after Shreya ends the word 'Mannipaaya" is really out of the world.I just loved the chorus part,sepcially starting from 4:27 .The second stanza starts after the chorus part followed by beautiful percussions(do i have to mention it everytime?Well,its so magical that you can't stop yourslf).Shreya ends the song with a beautiful song.

This song will definitely take place in the "Best songs of Shreya Ghoshal"

Shreya is pure magical in the song.Million thanks to Shreya and Rahman.God Bless them for making such a wonderful song.Hope to hear more of their combo.


ps:I have also posted the lyrics of Mannipaaya along with their translation in my previous post.

Hi,this is murali krishna from vijayawada.nice reviews about a great singer.and i wanna thank you for sharing and updating information about shreya.
Mannipaya song is from a tamil movie.
The same song is also in telugu language from movie "em maya chesave".
i can feel the depth and meaning of every word in that song.i can say its purely because of our nightingale.her co singer in that song karthik also did very well.
