Why Christakala's 'Pathinettu Vayassilu' from Uyare is a wake-up call to women


Parvathy Thiruvoth's 'Uyare' urges women to look inward and 'become the one they really love to be by not trying to be someone else's version of them'.

'Pathinettu Vayassilu' song rendered by Christakala is the lifeline to this realization. The singer has literally given life to the meaningful lyrics by Rafique Ahammed.

The folk style is pitching and the theme is set on a teenager's disappointment to find a pimpled version of her when she wakes up one fine morning. She wanders around depressed until she gets a wake-up call from the sun. Awakened, she soars above from her sadness.
