On singer-composer Devi Sri Prasad’s birthday, here’s a song he sung in the film Sachein, starring Vijay and Genelia in the lead. The film was directed by John Mahendran, and marked Bipasha Basu’s debut in Tamil.
Devi Sri Prasad is known for his pulsating beats, and this is a melody that has continued to charm, over the years. The composer primarily works in Telugu now.
The song has lyrics by the late Na Muthukumar, and equates the lady love to God. “Like God appears in the blink of an eye, she stands in front of me; like the downpour when there’s no umbrella, her beauty washes over me, and she tells me this is love …” go the lines.
The song has some smart choreography, executed wonderfully by Vijay, who is known for his dancing skills. Genelia showcases her range of cutesy expressions that had the State in a thrall when she was active in Tamil movies! The film was shot by the late cinematographer Jeeva.
