Happy birthday, Mohanlal! Our song of the day is the chart-buster ‘Pattu Onnu’ from Jilla, the 2013 film starring Mohanlal as Vijay’s father. In the last four decades, Mohanlal has acted in over 300 films, and in addition to Malayalam, he is a star in the south Indian states.

The Jilla album became a huge hit before release. ‘Pattu Onnu’ was Vijay and Mohanlal’s opening song in the film. A mash up between rock, guitars and chenda, the song has its moments of punch and SPB and Shankar Mahadevan bring out their with D Imman’s music. Mohanlal plays Shiva and Vijay is Shakthi on screen, and the lyrics speak about their friendship and support for each other.
