AR Rahman performed "Nenjukulle" from Kadal sung by Shakthisree Gopalan. The song a soft poignant melody became an instant hit with viewers and was trending on Twitter.
The US based Filmmaker Naveen said: “Nenjukulle is a heart-stroking composition, mellifluous poetry, perfect rendition and wonderfully arranged!Most of AR's female vocal finds have a good 'bass' voice including Shakthisree Gopalan. There is magic with the violin by Anne Marie Calhoun.”
The song has less instruments and more melody with lovely meaningful lyrics by Vairamuthu.
The ARR number has also made the Chennai based singer Shakthisree Gopalan even more popular. Recently she sang in Jab Tak Hai Jaan with Javed Ali under AR Rahman baton.
