Dear Friends - Presenting a cross-over attempt at covering a "title song" of the Tamil movie AAN PAAVAM released in 1985. This all-time blockbuster made waves with impeccable comic timing and energetic screenplay. This song appears on the title cards when a movie theater is inaugurated in a remote village in Tamil Nadu and is tuned and sung by Maestro Ilayaraja with a rustic village flavor. My first attempt at a rural folk number. The song is all about welcoming an eager audience waiting to flock into the newly opened theater and describes the significance of cinema, highlighting what all achievements have happened and how cinema can provide relief and relaxation to an otherwise monotonous life. Lyrics by Kavignar Vairamuthu are well aligned with the demands of the village backdrop. I hope you all will enjoy this energetic peppy high-pitched number :-)
