After impressing fans with the video song of “En Iniya Thanimaye”, makers of Arya-Sayyeshaa starring “Teddy” released the video of “Nanbiye” sung by music composer cum singer Anirudh Ravichander on youtube. The 4 minute 31 seconds long song shows a series of montages about the relationship between the protagonist of the fantasy flick and a special character named “Teddy”.
Through the song, it is revealed that Arya is treating the “Teddy” as his female friend which is something we haven’t seen in Tamil cinema often. The film’s plot is based on how an ordinary man and his toy friend “Teddy” are solving a medical mystery by going through an adventurous journey.
The recently released “Nanbiye” song, visuals of which were beautifully captured by the film’s cinematographer Yuva, gives us a glimpse on the mischievous antics of “Teddy” that she is going to do throughout the film. Arya who played the role of a regular office-going apartment resident, enjoys the company of “Teddy” and says that she is his “new friend” when his mother asks why he is always carrying it with him.
The desire of sharing makes us long for a true, everlasting friend in our lives and having a friendship with someone “real” is an excellent prescription for all kinds of physical and emotional pain. It can be difficult to find people with similar interests and values and becomes even more harder during adulthood, when responsibilities like career, education, and family care severely limit one’s social life. In the song “Nanbiye”, Arya manages to sustain a strong, deep friendship with his lifeless “teddy”, behaviour of which competes with the qualities of a human friend.
The protagonist feels extremely happy while spending time with his “Teddy” as she completely accepted him for who he actually is. He goes on for a walk with her in beaches and accompanies her in the adventurous rides of a theme park like we do with our “real” friends. They also watch movies together and we could see them fighting over the widely debatable “Thala-Thalapathy” rivalry. To make it evident that she is someone who has emotions, the makers have made a scene showing “Teddy” wiping her tears while watching an emotional scene from Ajith’s “Viswasam”. The protagonist loves to share his both tears and laughter with his teddy and treats her as his soul mate.
The lines “Everything is an illusion! you are the only reality”, “Am I even real ?” or a mere doll in your hands?” written by Madhan Karky to cite the perception of the protagonist sums up the entire relationship between the duo. The song which shows Arya verbally communicating with the “Teddy” also features comedy actor Sathish. Through the montage sequences, we could also understand that Arya and Sathish are the only individuals who are aware of the special abilities of “Teddy”.
Sharing the song’s video link, actor Arya wrote “Can’t ask for a better friendship song Smiling face with heart-shaped eyes amazing done by Shakthi Soundara Rajan and team, sung by Rockstar Anirudh” in his tweet.
