      "indRu pOi nALai vArAi" from "sampoorna ramayanam".
      Singer: C.S.Jeyaraman
      MD: K.V.Mahadevan
      Lyrics: Maruthakaasi?

      Ravanan is a marvelous, multifaceted antagonist who renders himself
      easily to many interpretations. Looking back at the movie, the credence
      and dignity that the movie had given Ravanan was astounding considering
      that he took on the deity of purity. (If Kollywood makes that movie
      today, Ravanan will be evil personified; he would court the 7 deadly
      sins and then some, ensuring their recipe of an irredeemable villain is
      intact.)

      KVM's music was reliably sound as expected in such epics. While the
      whole soundtrack was stellar ( the marvelous raagamaaligaa comes to
      mind), the SOTD is brilliantly conceived and powerfully subtle in the
      way it coils the emotions of a proud warrior's fall from grace. The
      unthinkable atrocity that an adversary would belittle him so is played
      out here musically with the mournful tabla and the somber veenai. The
      whole composition has the flavor of a Hindusthani ballad.

      I've always been a CSJ fan for his individuality and his dialed-down
      realistic approach to singing. But here he evinces nuances that are
      compellingly apt for the mood. He shows a dexterity that is not often
      associated with his remarkable facility as a singer.
