Video – Thalai suttuthey Mama
The cinematography is by K V Guhan. Dance choreography is by Raghava Lawrence.
The video opens with Raghava Lawrence twisting his own ear to whistle! He begins to dance like one possessed, in tune with the music that has already begun. Mark my words. You will be reminded of these words that I have uttered in the context of later songs.
Raghava Lawrence begins to sing as he continues to dance, with other male dancers. A female dancer joins him in the dance. Some differently-abled dancers also join him. He motivates them. The song rises to a crescendo and ends abruptly. The video, also, as Raghava Lawrence swoons.
Raghava Lawrence sings this song for himself. Other actors and dancers are also seen in the video.
There is no influence of any culture on this song. The song is basically an intoxicated prance by the leading man. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
