Our song of the day is ‘Raajathi Raja’ from director P Vasu’s Mannan (1992), a popular composition by Ilaiyaraaja, featuring Khushboo and Rajinikanth at their best. The pulse of the song is upbeat, set to lyrics by Vaali, which begins with Swarnalatha’s line, ‘Rajathi raja un thanthirangal, nirkaamal koothaadum pambarangal’.
