The first time Gautham Menon and AR Rahman got together, we got one of the best albums to come out this century. It is perfect for a romantic film such as Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. These songs work on their own but the visuals make it even more memorable.
As for Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, there is a lot to talk about. It ranges from the technical details to the scenes that made it and some that should have made it. But one thing was clear to me seeing the film, this is Mani Ratnam reinventing himself.
