Our song of the day is the Ilaiyaraaja composition ‘Poo Poo Poo Poo Pootha Solai’ from Puthu Nellu Puthu Naathu, written by Ponvannan and directed by Bharathiraja. It tells the story of the son of a widow in love with a landlord’s daughter and the clash this leads to in the village. Sung by SPB and S Janaki and set to lyrics by Vaali, this song, shot in waterfalls and hills, is about how their love is like a garden in full bloom.
