Song – Penmaane Sangeetham from Naan Sigappu Manithan
Singers – SP Balasubrahmanyam, S Janaki
Music Composer – Ilaiyaraaja
Director – SA Chandrasekhar
Starring – Rajinikanth, Ambika
The song comes as a diversion in a film which is about vigilantism. SA Chandrasekhar’s movie is relentlessly brutal with the sort of inbuilt messaging that forces a reaction from the audience. And then, it segues into this lovely number about a man asking his lover to sing for him. It’s a true Ilaiyaraaja piece, with lilting vocals by S Janaki and a SP Balasubrahmanyam who goes easy with his unique baritone.
