Happy birthday, Kamalini Mukharjee. Our song of the day is this love track from Iravi, starring Kamalini with SJ Surya. Vijay Sethupathi, Anjali and Bobby Simha are the others in the film. It was written and directed by Karthik Subbaraj, and released in 2016.
Kamalini has worked in about 30 films since she began her career in 2004 with Phir Milenge. She has acted in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali and Hindi. Some of her best films are Style, Godavari, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, Natholi Oru Cheriya Meenalla. She has become known for playing strong willed women roles in films.
As Yazhini in Iraivi, she is in love with Arul (Suryah) but will not give in to him. Like most men in songs, he follows her with a group of people to convince her of his love. He dances on a beach and sings that he can’t imagine his world without her, so he brings everyone around to tell her that just a smile would keep him going. The song has a lively percussion and fast-moving melody, composed and sung by Santhosh Narayanan.
