Projekt Ilaiyaraaja Season III — 196/365 — Then Kulathile
Ezhuthatha Sattangal is one of the movies that Sivaji Ganesan and Prabhu acted together. It was a remake of Malayalam movie titled Aarambham (1982).
The pieceI have chosen is an absolute cracker of a song that is based on Sriranjani raga while the orchestration is a rock based brilliance with guitars, drums and trumpets. The energy of the song is infectious with Janaki’s vocals and each of instruments challenging each other. it’s an absolute exposition of what Ilaiyaraaja is known far.
