Ever since the teaser of the Vijay Sethupathi-Trisha starrer 96 released a few weeks ago, people have been raving about one thing, (apart from Trishaâ€™s gorgeous looks) - when will they get to hear the full version of the song that plays for a fleeting few seconds in the teaser?
This song, that has created huge expectations even before the film's release, was launched finally on Monday. Composed by Govind Vasantha, the song has been rendered soulfully by Chinmayi and the composer himself.
The song slowly builds up, dominated mainly by instruments and with very minimal lyrics penned by Karthik Netha. Rendered beautifully by Chinmayi, this three-minute piece has a divine combination of the flute (played by Kiran) and violin (played by Govind).
In the brief motion graphics seen in the video, Trisha and Vijay Sethupathi share a great chemistry that gels perfectly with the music.
â€śKonjum pooraname va
Nee konjum ezhilisaye
Kooda va Kuda va
pogalam pogava neeâ€ť
go the lyrics, which celebrate falling in love and staying in love.
Directed by cinematographer-turned-director C Prem Kumar, it was earlier announced that the film would be a romantic flick. The first look poster was released to coincide with Valentine's Day last year. Vijay Sethupathi and C Prem Kumar have previously worked together in Naduvula Konjam Pakatha Kaanom.
Mahendiran Jeyaraju and N Shanmuga Sundaram have done the film's cinematography while R Govindaraj has edited it. Produced by Nandagopal of Madras Enterprises, the filmâ€™s release date is yet to be announced.
The filmâ€™s teaser was released early this month and was widely appreciated by many. It was earlier revealed that the filmâ€™s title signifies the year 1996. Also, the film will feature Vijay Sethupathi in three different ages of his life - 16, 36 and 96.
