Throwback Thursday #2

We hear Suriya has been kicking up a storm this week with his new movie Maattraan, but what we want to know is, who remembers the films of his youth? This week’s throwback is of course dedicated to Suriya, in that pre-Nandha, loved-up romantic hero role for which he was renowned for in the late nineties.

Our track this week is ‘Irava Pagala’ from Vasanth’s 1999 film “Poovellam Kettupar”, starring Kollywood’s favourite couple Suriya and Jyothika! The soundtrack was a breakthrough one for composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, who is now to the 21st century youth what his father Ilaiyaraaja was to the eighties.

We love the beautiful lyrics by Pazhani Bharathi and – aside from a few A R Rahman classics – we can’t think of any tracks that bring out the magic of Hariharan’s voice better than Irava Pagala.

We could listen to this track night and day, so have a listen below!
