Onam, the season of flowers and bonding is here once again. It is also the season of homecoming.  We present some of the evergreen Malayalam songs on this occasion.

This song from Jacobinte Swargarajyam sung by Unni Menon, Sithara and Meera Scharma tops the chart of Onam songs. This song embodies the spirit of Onam, which is togetherness. It showcases Kerala’s unique culture and heritage. Starring Nivin Pauly, Renji Panicker and Sai Kumar, Jacobinte Swargarajyam was a major hit of 2016.

2. Malare (Premam)

Probably, very few songs managed to bring the zeal of Onam celebrations like this one did. Nivin Pauly and Sai Pallavi played the role of a lifetime in Premam and this song beautifully echoes the spirit of Onam. Kudos for Vijay Yesudas, who lent his magical voice to make this song an eternal one.
