Palindrome Song - A unique attempt by Madhan Karky
Lyricist Madhan Karky has attempted an unexplored area in a Tamil song with his latest work in the film Vinodhan. He has penned a whole track using only Palindromes in the language.
What is Palindrome?
For the uninitiated, a palindrome is a word that spells the same both forwards and backwards e.g. Madam, radar, etc.
Ma d aM
Ra d aR
Palindrome in Tamil Song
While palindromes are common in the English language, writing lyrics using the theme in a literature as complex as Tamil, is a challenging task in itself.
To blend these lyrics to a tune and the voices rendered, one can imagine the effort Karky and composer Imman put into this number. In the end, it is heartening to see artists coming up with such unique innovations and attempting to re-invent the lines of Tamil music.
The song can be viewed at doopaadoo.com which again is an extension of Karky's innovative steps in the music industry. (Karky launched this music platform recently which functions as a one-stop point for everything related to independent music). Take a look at the lyrical video here:
