Where from the world one can bring out such a good piece of music??? Things invented or Thoughts put forward years back are still alive and they are being sought after till date. What could be the reason behind this undeniable truth? Relevance. This song is one of such classics of maestro himself and the way it was captured adds extraordinary beauty to it. Isn’t a discussion/article about a song years after its birth a sign of its relevance?

There were days we kept asking ourselves one of the popular puzzles of all the time. How can one explain the color of a sky to a visually challenged?? Nostalgic Isn’t it. No wonder, the ‘Breezy’ song had answered it long back in the tail end of 1995 in a not-so-famous movie Avatharam. The song which follows after Actress Revathi (visually challenged)  utters those beautiful words to the veteran actor/director Naseer who voluntarily blindfolded himself as his love interest (revathi) was visually challenged. The words are “Can you be my eyes?”

The song is situated in the context of what is the big deal in the world if one can hardly see some of the colors but the crude darkness. Nevertheless one can visualize those colors which are closely associated with human lives in a lot of occasions.

The crude translation goes this way:

Which color comes to your mind, when your body encounters a breezy touch?  

Which color comes to your mind, when the non luminous body is in its full might shining all the night?

I strongly believe that translating any further will definitely spoil the content. The visual was very meaningful as it mirrors some of the true philosophies of life in a subtle manner. Equal credit goes to the direction department for their effort despite the fact that it has always been a walk on a cake for the directors to shoot such a song with a more common, stereotypic orchestration.

A few cute observations:

1. The Dynamic painting which orchestrates the first few seconds of the song:

One could have easily shot hero-heroin romancing sequence or both bursting in laughter cracking an adult joke or similar situations for that mesmerizing vocal piece of the maestro himself. Introducing a piece of dynamic art in that shot was simply amazing. The painting has come out in such a way that the golden eyes are gradually opening to see the so-far-unseen world and witness all those beautiful colors around her.

2. The ripening of fruits sequence:

One cannot explain the mantra of life in such a simple way. The so called ‘karma’ of life is pictorially represented in an adorable manner.

3. The dancing children sequence:

The dress color of the children was analogous to clear and dark clouds which later collide to bring some grey clouds and finally ending up in rainfall. A saint symbolizing the god is wishing good times after the rain. Then there was a multitude of colors splashes around symbolizing the rainbow formation. I firmly believe that putting in more words about the rest may influence one’s own way of receiving the song.

I am seeing myself in the position of that dynamic painting, floating in this beautiful piece of music.

Am I the only one who was turning my blind eyes to this song? Hope not.
