Cast[edit]

Soundtrack[edit]

Music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.Lyrics by Vaali (poet) [2] The song "Janani Janani" from this film remains one of the famous devotional songs in Tamil. The song is set in Kalyani raga.[3] The song Isai Arasi (Isaiyarasi), one of the most complex compositions in Film Music, is based on a rare Carnatic raga, Surya.

Ilayaraja said he "was running out of time while composing the tune for the song. I was under hectic pressure from the film producer, who had planned to perform the ‘puja’ for the film the next day with the song" Initial tune which he had composed did not suit the character Sri Adi Sankarar. He said with a chance to have a glimpse of the portrait of Adi Sankarar, he was inspired to compose the tune which was similar to Bhaja Govindam.[4]
