Singers: Vijay Prakash, Ajeesh, Diwakar

Actors: Swathi Reddy, Jai

Film: Vadacurry

Happy birthday, Swathi Reddy! Our song of the day is ‘Nenjukulla Nee’ from Vadacurry, starring Swathi and Jai. He expresses his love for her by stalking her, which she falls for in the end. If you look past this, the song is lively and refreshing, marking the collaboration of Super Singer winners – Diwakar and Ajeesh Ashok along with Vijay Prakash. There’s a softness in the composition, and it is brought alive by the use of folk instruments for percussion.

Jai and Swathi Reddy’s performance in this film was received well. Before this, they starred in her debut film Subramaniapuram. She has acted in Telugu and Malayalam movies, and rose to fame with her role in the the show Colours (1996) which used to air on Maa TV. She also turned playback singer recently with ‘Unbelievable’ and ‘A Square B Square’ from her films.
