Projekt Ilaiyaraaja Season III — 324/365 — Thottale Pothum

I think I have already posted other songs from Iniya Uravu Poothathu. Why not complete the album? Iniya Iravu Poothathu is a typical CV Sridhar template love story with a playboy hero being transformed by a righteous woman.

Thottale Pothum is the song for the hero to show his playboy side with three different women. And so, the first charanam and second charanam have two different distinct tunes but seamlessly sync with the pallavi. The second charanam could be in a rare raga called “Srothaswini” and I am not able to confirm that. So take it with a pinch of salt.

But don’t miss the ensemble interludes lavished with strings, guitar and brass with crazy progressions.
