Today is Mani Ratnam’s birthday. Our second song for the day is from Kadal (2013), co-written and directed by Mani Ratnam and produced by his banner Madras Talkies. The film introduced Gautham Karthik and Thulasi Nair. Gautham Karthik plays the son of a fisherman, who meets Thulasi while she is running away from her convent. They keep running into each other, and this song is one such meeting.
Shakthisree Gopalan first sang ‘Nejukkule’ with Rahman for an episode of MTV Unplugged, making it a huge YouTube hit much before the album released.
Rahman and Mani Ratnam have collaborated for many hits including Roja, Alaiypauthey, Ok Kanmani. The director has made 26 popular films since he began his career with Pallavi Anu Pallavi in 1983.
