I know this is a huge holiday and there most be hundreds of songs about it. But I’ve only been watching Malayalam films for less than a year, so I know very very few of them. Forgive me! And feel free to mention some better ones in the comments.
I just watched Jacobinte Swargarajyam, and I love this song for itself, and also for this vision of diaspora celebrating the holiday. It feels very unique (although, again, what do I know!).
Onam is such a huge thing in Charlie, but I think this is the closest we get to an Onam themed song, yes?
And finally, I have no idea what is happening in this song, and I don’t think it is even from a movie, but it’s really pretty, right? Both sound and visuals.
UPDATE: A commentator just posted this song video in the comments, and it is so lovely that I have to add it here. Partly because I am a sucker for little kids, but also because the lyrics and so simple and clear in explaining the importance of the holiday. Oh, and the song sounds really pretty too.
