Say you are someone who needs a musical touch to romancing that all important someone in your life. Say you are also someone who firmly believes in Malayalam cinema from the 80s. Say you dream about wearing bell-bottoms, colourful shirts and dancing around trees. Say you want to believe you are always the hero out to woo the girl (even if that means sounding like a stalker too much, too often). Then this is the playlist you want on your iPod. Go figure!
Unnikrishnan has fallen, hook, line and sinker for Gadha, but she seems to be immune to his charms. So he decides to take things in his hands and get down to the business of wooing her. Then this cute-as-a button but a bit of a stalker song comes along.
Sub inspector Rajendran might be a daredevil at his job, but when it comes to wooing women, he is still an awkward novice. That’s evident in this song and dance number that begins with a confession –“Behind this khaki shirt lies a mushy poet”. He fumbles and mumbles through this expertly clumsy song. Hilarious!
Malu is entering the college premises with trepidation, wondering about the reception when Ramabhadran and co pounce on her vehicle. They succeed in making her a laughing stock in no time.
‘Maane madhura karimbe’(Pinnilavu)
Mammootty does acrobatics, somersaults and everything apart from dancing to tunes of his ladylove in this peppy number.
Maine Pyar Kiya (CID Moosa)
The goofy hero wants to impress this Hindi-speaking girl. So what does he do? He takes some help from the Hindi film posters splashed on a wall and coins a song with their titles. Ingenious.
‘ Pom Pom ee Jeep’(Nanayam)
Footloose and fancy—Mammootty and Mohanlal before their superstar days. They play step brothers in this multi-starrer and in the song, they have just been expelled from college. Both are having a ball, shamelessly making a play at girls and indulging in other mischiefs. It’s a fun song and a rare one which showcases the camaraderie between our superstar and megastar.
