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
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.
