A few songs from my playlist that led to a recent epiphany that Malayalam music deserves a huge place in our hearts! Samajh aaye ya naa aaye, but sunke bahut accha lagega!

Even though I struggle to figure out the lyrics, the music does its job, and dives straight in to the soul. Mollywood doing what it does best, ruling our hearts!
