Actor Silambarasan has put his singing talent on display again. He has sung for the music video presented by his regular collaborator Yuvan Shankar Raja. Titled “Thappu Pannitten,” which suggests ‘I made an error ,’ it’s composed by AK Priyan and written by lyricist Vignesh Ramakrishnan. It revolves around a boy’s grief about ending together with his girlfriend.
Vignesh’s lyrics are not any poetry. there’s no room for ambiguity or little interpretation. No deep meaning or imagination, just random words of regrets, sung during a sober tone about the error the boy had committed. What you hear is what you get. And this plain approach to capture the pain of heartbreak is unmoving.
Priyan’s tune for the song has Yuvan Shankar Raja written everywhere it. While lyrics leave something to be desired, visuals and choreography come as a grace . Kalidas has really committed to his performance as a boy with a heart filled with regret. And Megha Akash is straightforward on the eyes because the heartbreaker.
The video captures the drama and pain of the connection , that lyrics fail to precise . and therefore the opening moments of the song feels straight out of a Gautham Menon film. The video begins with a narration by Simbu setting the regretful mood for “Thappu Pannitten.”
“Thappu Pannitten” is bankrolled by Abinesh Elangovan under the banner of Abi and Abi Entertainment.
On the work front, Simbu is shooting for Maanaadu, which is written and directed by Venkat Prabhu. He also features a new film with director Gautham Menon. The project is titled Nadhigalilae Neeradum Suriyan and it’s expected to travel on the floors soon.
