Today is Cochin Haneefa’s birth anniversary. The veteran actor has acted on over 300 films in Malayalam and Tamil, but is also an accomplished screenwriter and director.
Our song of the day today is in his honour. From the 1988 film Paasa Paravaigal. The film, written by Kalaignar M Karunanidhi, tells the story of a brother and sister who have a huge fallout. The sister believes her brother killed her husband and the brother has to prove his innocence. The film directed by Haneefa was moving and impactful, with credible courtroom scenes.
This song, composed by Ilaiyaraaja and sung by Yesudoss and Chitra, talk of happy times and sibling love before the two separate.
