Composer: Ghibran

Actors: Iniya, Vemal

Lyrics: Karthik Netha

Film: Vaagai Sooda Vaa

Happy birthday Ghibran! Our song of the day is ‘Poraney Poraney’ from Sargunam’s Vaagai Sooda Vaa, Ghibran’s first movie, a period film set in the 1960s. The songs attempted to recreate the music of that time, and were all chartbusters. ‘Poraney Poraney’ speaks of the separation of two lovers. It has an impressive orchestration, and is sung by Ranjith and Neha Bhasin, who won awards for their rendition, and is set to lyrics by Karthik Netha.

Ghibran took a break after Vaagai Sooda Vaa in 2011, and returned with Vatthikuchi, Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah, Uttama Villain, Paapanasam and more. He currently runs a music studio in Chennai, and also shuffles between Mumbai and Singapore, where he used to work on gigs and ads before his film career.
