Ninaithu Ninaithu Parthen – Tamil tribute to KK

Pure Bollywood buffs may not know that KK sang a lot, a lot in South films also and particularly, some of the biggest hits in Tamil of the 2000s. Actually he got his start in Tamil back in 1997 with Rahman’s eclectic Strawberry Kanne (which you may have heard as Strawberry Aankhein from Sapnay). As in Hindi, his range was diverse in Tamil too. But Ninaithu Ninaithu Parthen (of which there is also a beautiful female version sung by none other than Shreya Ghoshal) stuck with me the most. It’s one of the most beautiful and haunting compositions of Yuvan Shankar Raja, the younger son of living legend Ilayaraja. It also has very poignant lyrics by the late Na Muthukumar.
