Song Of The Day: ‘Pogum Paadhai’ From ‘Pisaasu’

Singer – Uthra Unnikrishnan

Composer – Arrol Corelli

Lyricist – Thamizhachi Thangapandian

Actors – Naga, Prayaga Martin, Radha Ravi, Kalyani N and Harish Uthaman


A stirring violin solo provides succour to this song. Arrol Corelli’s decision to make the violin the focal point of this song proves successful, for Uthra is at her autotuned best here. Fresh off the success of Saivam song, Uthra was perhaps a popular choice for the song. Not the best one.

The overall mood is tragic and uplifting at the same time, in tune with the mood Mysskin tries to create in his version of a horror film. As far as songs go, this one is perhaps the best choice to celebrate the birthday of Mysskin — a mercurial personality whose films are both tragic and uplifting.
