“Andhi Mazhai Megam”
from Nayagan which depicted a gleeful celebration
of Holi in the rain is a wonderful celebratory
song about the resilience of human nature
and the ability to draw pleasure from the
simple things in life.
“Thakita Thadhimi” from Salangai
Oli is another legendary rain song which showcased
Kamal’s histrionics as well as dancing
abilities as he precariously danced on a well.
The scenes following the train crash in Anbe
Sivam and the cremation scenes in Nayagan
with “Then Pandi Seemayile” in
the background were also shot in the rain.
That added to the intensity and emotional
quotient of these scenes.
