Today’s second post is the analysis of the song, Suru suru Suravathi, from the Tamil movie Muni (2007). The song has been analyzed based on its context and visualization.
Movie – Muni (2007)
The song, Suru suru Suravathi, appeared in the Gemini Productions’ Tamil comic horror flick Muni (2007), produced by Saran and directed by Raghava Lawrence. The movie starred Raghava Lawrence, Vedhicka Kumar, Kovai Saroja, etc.
Ganesh (Raghava Lawrence) is a man, who is frightened of ghosts. He falls in love with Priya (Vedhicka Kumar), who initially rejects his love outright. But eventually, she also falls in love with him. They get married and his father, Kandasamy (Vinu Chakravarthy) shifts with his wife, Kannamma (Kovai Sarala), Ganesh and Priya to a haunted house.
On the newlyweds’ first Diwali, they are left home alone by Ganesh’s parents to be intimate. At this point, the young couple sing this song.
Song – Suru suru Suravathi
The lyrics of the song, Suru suru Suravathi, were penned by P Vijay-Raghava Lawrence and it was set to tune by Bharadwaj.
The song talks about different types of crackers being burst and wishing a Happy Diwali to all. The man and the girl also compare one another to crackers.
Video – Suru suru Suravathi
The cinematography is by K V Guhan. Dance choreography is by Raghava Lawrence.
The video opens with Raghava Lawrence and Vedhicka Kumar coming to a stage with other dancers and beginning to dance. An interesting part of the song is that the hero and the heroine wear matching dresses.
The other dancers also wear uniform costumes. Raghava Lawrence and Vedhicka Kumar perform a combo of breakdance and folk. The song rises to a crescendo and ends abruptly. The video also ends as she kisses him on his cheek and he winks at the camera.
Anuradha Sriram and Ranjith have sung this song for Vedhicka Kumar and Raghava Lawrence. Some other actors are also seen in the video.
The song has been influenced by the Tamil Nadu’s folk-dance form called – Kuthu. This is a romantic song between the hero and the heroine. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
