The sixth and final instalment of the Resident Evil series, which released in Japan and the US last year, will be out in February in India.
In order to create a buzz around its release, a promotional song in Tamil featuring visuals from the film has been created. Titled Yaaro Aval, the song has been composed by Santosh Dayanidhi and sung by Sunita Sarathy.
Based on a survival horror video game, Resident Evil features Milla Jovovich as Alice, a one-time security operative who worked for Umbrella, a bioengineering pharma company. Umbrella unleashes zombie apocalypse on the world and Alice is the hero who must stop them.
The Resident Evil series has been panned by critics but it continues to be a high grosser. Resident Evil The Final Chapter promises to be along the same lines.
The Yaaro Aval song is a tribute to Alice, who is hailed as a goddess who battles on despite the threat of death, monsters and "Yaman padai" (the zombies!). The lyrics elevate Alice to humanity's saviour: Manidhan ivalaal meelumo?
One has to say the song complements Milla's onscreen heroics all right.
