The Eternal Classic, “Oh ...oh … Mridule … Hridayamuraliyilozhuki Vaa.. Nin Nizhalaay Alayum Priyane Marannuvo... Mridule ...” – Sadly, planned for a Remake!



Sad to hear that this beautiful song from the film 'Njaan Ekanaanu(1982) is planning to be remade! This song has M G Radhakrishnan's inimitable music and the Celestial voice of Yesudas, both of which cannot be replaced! The great words were written by Sathyan Anthikkadu, who is a Film Director now and planning to remake this song in another film! The Music Director, M G Radhakrishnan, who has immortalised this song by his music, bid farewell on 2 July 2010 much before his time! His Music was phenomenal in enriching films like 'Thakara, Rakkuyilin Rajasadasil, Advitham, Sarvvakalashala, Raktha-saakshikal Sindaabaad,etc, and films like 'Manichithrathaazhu, Devasuram, and Ananthabhadram' were escalated by his scintillating music!

There are certain songs that should never be touched, and this song is one of those! This beautiful song in Yesudas's celestial voice, so heavy with the melancholic bliss, dancing to the great music of M G Radhakrishnan, is so absorbed into the Malayaalee's senses even after three decades – more so since the death of M G Radhakrishnan's friend, who ended his life listening to the song with the heart-wrenching words, 'Oh Mridule...', on the first Remembrance Day of his wife who was killed in a traffic accident! It is a poignant reminder of this tragic occasion, especially to those who knew the loving couple in the U.S, and of course, M G Radhakrishnan had talked about it with great sadness! I wish they would refrain from the remake of this great song, because that would be desecrating a great song, which is an eternal classic in Yesudas's voice! I guess one can only plead that this beautiful song may remain untouched and I hope more people will voice their opinion to save this eternal beauty, the song that had a special corner in M G Radhakrishnan's heart!
