The joy of celebration

Movie: Nayagan
Singer: T.L Maharajan [need confirmation]
Composer: Ilaiyaraja [இளையராஜா]
Lyricist: Unknown [need inputs]

The song brings out the feeling of celebration in a raw, primal way. Especially the opening - the boy splashing color on Kamal, the silence, and the drums...
Another illustration of the power of music over the human mind. Add to it the truly colorful and glorious depiction of just enjoying a simple event together as a group.

Another point is that the charanams are happenning in a single take. I think it is a very difficult task with so many people in a rain atmosphere.
