With Valentine’s Day around the corner and theme of love being in the air, a short clip from a Malayalam movie started doing the rounds on the Internet.
Composed by Shaan Rahman, the video resonated with many and filled the hearts of people with nostalgia of high school romance.
The clip was trimmed from the newly-released song “Manikya Malaraya Poovi” from the upcoming Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love and was flooding the social media timelines.
And soon, the scene where actor Priya Prakash Varrier exchange adorable glances with a boy, became an overnight Internet sensation.

When the situation got out of control, Sakht Launda Zakir Khan had to intervene with some Sakht advice.
Doston kerala ki taraf se ek ghatak humla hua hai.
Sakht advice: Kissi bhi school dress wali ladki ke meme pe click na kare. Radom tags par dhyan na de.. P.S: Yaad rakhiyega sathiyon. Itihaas humme humari sakhti ke liye yaad rakhega, pighalne ke liye nahi.#KeepCalm&BeSakht — zakir khan (@Zakirism) February 11, 2018
Sakht Advice: Agar koi gaddar aapko Kissi bhi dushman ke video me ya photo me tag kare toh sayyam rakhe aur ghabraye bilkul nahi. Aur reply me “mai pighal gaya” likhne ki jagah “Yeh Muskaan ki chamkaan kahin aur” ka istamal kare. Dopahar ke muqable halaat ab kaboo me hai. — zakir khan (@Zakirism) February 11, 2018
The video was later picked up by comedy collective All India Bakchod.
An actress and model by profession, Priya is debuting in the south industry with Oru Adaar Love.
Hailing from Thrissur, Kerala, 19-year-old, is currently pursuing B.com, according to this website. And by the looks of it, Priya is also fond of Mohiniyattom — one of two classical dances of India that developed and remain popular in the state of Kerala.
Needless to say, Priya’s social media accounts blew up in no time.
Created only a couple of days ago, her Twitter account already has 16 thousand followers.
Hi twitter, here is my official twitter handle — Priya Prakash Varrier (@priyapvarrier) February 10, 2018
While her Instagram account saw a spectacular hike in followers, with an addition of 5 lac followers on Sunday alone.
Dropped on 9th February on YouTube, with almost 4.5 million views, the viral song video was at one point trending at #1 spot in India.
