Throwback Thursday #3

This week we’re preparing to wish the beautiful Asin a massive happy birthday! The Kollywood-turned-Bollywood starlet turns 27 tomorrow, and as a tribute we’re bringing you a favourite from her breakthrough movie ‘Ghajini’!

Although the ‘Ghajini’ hype is quite recent in Bollywood, the Tamil version starring Suriya, Asin and Nayantara was released by director A R Murugadoss with music by Harris Jayaraj back in 2005.

We love the way Jayaraj mixes fun beats with smooth vocals in ‘Oru Maalai’ to capture the sheer excitement of falling in love. Singer Karthik gives a perfect rendition of delightful lyrics by our namesake poet, Thamarai – probably the only prominent female lyricist in the Tamil music industry!
