Alaipayuthey, My Favourite A.R. Rahman Album

Team FC


I saw Alaipayuthey for the first time nearly fourteen years after I first heard the songs, after a friend recommended the movie to me.

 Yaro Yarodi

The first song, 'Yaro Yarodi', came early on in the movie, and I was surprised to hear it. It felt like a jolt of nostalgia, the same feeling you get when you meet an old friend after a long time.

Evano Oruvan

There's some excitement inside me that rises, even if it's a song like 'Evano Oruvan'. Just the knowledge that it's from Alaipayuthey makes me want to get up and start singing and dancing along.


You can practically relive the whole movie through the nine songs on the album.
