After years-long long delay, Sony Music South announced on Twitter on Saturday that the song Oru Manam, from Gautham Vasudev Menon‘s Dhruva Natchathiram featuring Vikram, Ritu Varma, Aishwarya Rajessh, and Simran in lead roles, will be soon be released.
The song, composed by Harris Jayaraj, with lyrics by Thamarai, is sung by Shashaa Tirupati and Karthik. This marks the seventh collaboration of the director and the music composer after their 2015 release Yennai Arindhaal featuring Ajith Kumar. The duo’s other works include Minnale (2001) and its Hindi remake Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein, Kaakha Kaakha (2003), Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu (2006), Pachaikili Muthucharam (2007), and Vaaranam Aayiram (2008).
According to The Times of India, the song was supposed to release back in 2018 and has only released now because of delayed film production. The film, which went on floors in 2016 and was shot across seven countries, was delayed due to technical issues.
The Tamil spy film is both written and directed by Gautham Menon. The first teaser revolves around John (Vikram) who runs an ‘Indian covert unit’ in New York and needs to be tracked down by an anonymous man. Upon realising the threat to his mentor from the anonymous source, John returns to India in the second teaser. What follows is an action-packed film shot in foreign locations in the third and final teaser.
Menon’s following ventures will be releasing on OTT platforms. Paava Kadhaigal, Netflix’s first Tamil film and an anthology of four stories will be directed by Menon along with Vetrimaaran, Sudha Kongara, and Vignesh Shivan. Apart from this, he is collaborating with four other directors for Amazon Prime Video’s Tamil anthology Putham Pudhu Kaalai, alongside Mani Ratnam, Rajiv Menon, Sudha Kongara, and Karthik Subbaraj.
