Thaai Mookaambikai is a 1982 Indian Tamil film directed by K. Shankar, starring Jaishankar, Sivakumar, Poornima Bhagyaraj and other leading actors/actresses. The film had musical score by Ilaiyaraaja and was released in 1982.[1]



Music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[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]

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]
