Composer D Imman is known for his quirky and peppy tunes while also hitting the bulls eye when it comes to emotional numbers. As the composer turns 36, here are six songs we’re listening to on his birthday.
Soi Soi – Kumki, 2012
Looking out for a catchy Tamil rural song? Say no more, Imman has you covered. The voice of Maghizhini Manimaaran is nothing less than perfect for the song. All songs in the film worked wonders and this turned out to be one of Imman’s best albums. Directed by Prabhu Solomon, the film stars Vikram Prabhu, Lakshmi Menon, and Thambi Ramaiah.
Oodha Colour Ribbon – Varutha Padaatha Valibar Sangam, 2013
Did everyone fancied a purple ribbon when the song came out? The lyrics are simple yet catchy with a perfect beat to complement. Not to forget the iconic step in the video. Directed by Ponram, the film stars Sivakarthikeyan, Sathyaraj, and Sri Divya. The song has been rendered by Harihara Sudhan.
Koodamela Koodavechu – Rummy, 2014
One of his most populat melodies, this song brings a smile to my face whenever I listen to it. There’s some magic in the voices of Prasanna VV and Vandana Srinivasan that uplifts your mood. Directed by debutant Balakrishnan it features Vijay Sethupathi, Inigo Prabhakaran, Gayathrie Shankar, and Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead roles.
Un Mela Oru Kannu – Rajini Murugan, 2016

Kannana Kanney – Viswasam, 2019
The song that won many hearts and many awards. You definitely feel the love in Sid Sriram’s voice. The song is about the bond between a daughter and father. Directed by Siva, the film stars Ajith Kumar, Nayanthara, Thambi Ramaiah, Vivek, and Anikha Surendran.
Gaanda Kannazhagi – Namma Veetu Pillai, 2019
There’s no way you could’ve gone past 2019 without the words ‘Gummuru Tapparu’ ringing in your head. And with Anirudh Ravichander and Neeti Mohan on the vocals, the song sure made us tap our feet.
