Projekt Ilaiyaraaja Season III — 96/365 — Nilavai Sutri

Post-2000s, Tippu was a regular feature in Ilaiyaraaja songs and some of the songs went unnoticed because the movies didn’t do well. One of the reasons why there is a myth that Ilaiyaraaja didn’t make great music post-2000 is because the movies didn’t do well.

Madhu is one such movie and already I featured “Ketkavillaya” in the first season and in fact, the background score is quite captivating in this movie. This song has a beautiful hook at the start and takes on a wonderful trip with Tippu’s voice backed up by electronic pads, synth and guitar.
