With Thenmerku Paruva Mazhaia west Tamil Nadu and Kerala, promising the end of scorching summer and beginning of southwest monsoon, our song of the day is ‘Thenmerku Paruva Kaatru’ from director Bharathiraja’s super-hit Karuththamma (1994).
Monsoon hits the hills around Theni in this song. Rosy (Maheshwari) and Stephen (Daggubati Raja)’s place gets heavy rains, and she dreams of them dancing under it. All songs in the film were huge hits when they released, and ‘Thenmerku Paruva Katru’, the dance song from the film, also inspired the name for a Seenu Ramasamy directorial in 2010.
