I think this song from Azhagiya Tamizh Magan, must rank high up on Rahman's list of songs, that have a rustic feel to it. Nice use of the Thavil and Nadhaswaram. The rythm is quite lilting too.
Podunga-da andha kuttha ;-) (For the uninitiated, kutthu, or Dappan koothu, is a style of dance quite popular down south TamilNadu)
I can hear this song being played continuously in buses across the state ;-)
