The 3rd day of the Valentine’s week is ‘Teddy Day’ – perhaps a call back to the little stuffed toy that may be the young girl’s first friend. So here is ‘Snehidhane’ (Friend). From the film Alaipayuthey  – a romance written and directed by Mani Ratnam and released in 2000. The film starred Shalini and Madhavan in the lead. It was produced by Mani Ratnam himself under the banner Madras Talkies.

This song comes after Shalini and Madhavan are married and talks of the ways a girl wants her husband to behave and pamper her. With PC Sreeram’s colorful and dramatic visuals and AR Rahaman’s music, the song is a classic stands the test of time and rules the heart of every lover.
