Mungaru Male : Pure magic

I have been listening to the songs of the movie Mungaru Male repeatedly (often 4-5 times a day) over the past couple of months, after listening to my friends and my family rave about it for months. I love it, and can't wait to see the movie to have the full experience of these songs with the beautiful picturisation of the songs in Malnad. Wish I had made time to see the movie when I was in Bangalore last month! I will have to wait till the movie comes out on DVD or travel to some faraway city in US where it is being premiered now according to this web-site. I guess I could make it to Pittsburgh on July 14th to watch the movie!!

These songs were the favourites of my nephew and nieces as well; recalling them cutely singing these songs while I was at home lends an additional charm to the music and the songs.

Got to know that the music director for this movie - Mano Murthy - is part Music director and part Silicon-valley Entrepreneur. More surprising was the fact that he scored the music for the movie America! America!! which has been one of my favorites both for its story and its melodious songs. How could I have not known about a guy who has such wonderful scores to his credit!
