But place it in the sphere of Malayalam film songs, you will realise the song isn’t extraordinary. The film looks like a high school romance with a bunch of fresh faced youngsters taking the centre stage. After a video of a Malayalam song “Jimmi Kammal” went viral making Sheril an internet star, now it is happening all over again. “Manikya” particularly reminded me of two other songs, not in terms of tune, but the treatment – the title track of Poomaram featuring Kalidas Jayaram and the beautiful “Malare” from Premam. Sung by Vineeth Sreenivasan, “Manikya” is set in a high school and introduces us to different characters we generally meet there. But let’s talk about the song, shall we? The shy yet pretty girl, the bold and popular girl, the smart and funny boy, the friendly teacher, the transilience of ‘crushes’ — the high-school archetypes are all there. On Valentine’s week, a song “Manikya Malaraya Poovi” is ruling the internet, thanks to another pretty face Priya Prakash Varrier. 2018-02-12T15:24:50+00:00″>
