I am extremely happy to post this cover in collaboration with Poornima, after a long time. I love this song and its movie (Pitha Magan) a lot. An absolutely fantastic movie, with powerful contribution from Superstars of south Vikram and Surya, directed by Bala. The Maestro Ilaiyaraja lives in every frame of the movie and its music. It has a couple of gems of songs and this is one of them. It was originally sung by Sriram Parthasarathy and Shreya Ghoshal, so awesomely and effortlessly with fantastic feel. Poornima has done a fabulous singing here and I have done my best.
Pitha Magan is a simple story about an extraordinary man and his relationships with a perfectly ordinary world. Sitthan is a child of the graves, born in a cemetery and lived there all his life until one day, as a grown man he is forced to step out into the world. He is caught in times he does not understand. He is totally and believably unaware of such concepts as money, the police and dining etiquette. What he does possess is an animal instinct to survive.
A street-side drug seller takes him into her fold and gets him employed in a cannabis farm. The rest of the story revolves around how he meets Shakthi, a conman who becomes his friend for life and how the two proceed through their collective lives. The film was also remade in Telugu, Kannada and Hindi.
Vikram's awesome performance in this movie won him many awards, including the National Award for the Best Actor for that year. Surya just rocked the movie with his natural acting and so did the others who acted in the movie.
Kindly listen to this cover of ours at your leisure and we hope you will enjoy it. Earphones/Headphones recommended. Your valuable remarks are welcome, as always :).
