Balu Mahendra never comes with song situations without reason. Vanna Vanna Pookal is about a young man who falls in love with a woman who has eloped from her to spend the last days of her life in exile. The young man’s friend understands the depth of their love and tries to help them. The woman reveals her impending death to the friend. This is the situation for the song.

Now, listen to the music, lyrics and the beautiful rendering from KJ Yesudas. In the world of mindless music that doesn’t have any link to the story or the situation, it’s a bliss to listen to such melancholic songs that are more than just a part of the narrative.
