With social media providing ample platform for one and all to showcase creative outputs, the real talents rarely go unnoticed now, unlike in the past. It's the youngsters who are exploiting the public fora to feature their artistic skills. Most of these appear in the form of short films and album songs. That's the practice for those who have ideas but have least access to the mainstream showbiz world.
The album song 'Onnanam Kunnil,' is one such example, which is testimonial of the potential of its makers for exuberant cinematic craft. The 9.36-minute music video narrates the break-up story of lovers.
The dramatic build up to the song features a girl meets the boy to return the souvenir she was presented during their courtship days. Flashing the wedding card, the girl utters intensely painful words before she bids adieu and the two part ways for ever.
The song that recounts their amorous moments together is a moving and melodious piece. The slovenly paced rhythm with soft orchestration makes the song enthralling.
Except for the awkwardly asserted dialogues the emotions are perfectly portrayed by Gopika Gopakumar, who plays the role of the girl. Tony, who plays the boy though has nothing much to speak, portrays accurately the devastation of a break up.
The song is composed and sung by Sreejith Edavana and the video is directed by Maneesh Kurup who has also penned the lyrics. The visuals are mesmerizing and are captured by Aneesh Videokaran. The video is produced by Mahesh Mohan and the Mangalasseril Movies is its official music label.
The video song, which galvanizes emotions, beauty, drama and melody in a perfect blend, is slowly but steadily winning hearts and has garnered over 1.5 million views on YouTube so far.
