For the unversed, Amarkalam was directed by Saran and headlined by Ajith Kumar and Shalini, with Raghuvaran, Radhika and Nassar essaying pivotal roles.

Soulful music score

The film’s music was composed by Bharadwaj, and had lyrics penned by Vairamuthu. Did you know that Shalini has crooned a song in this film?
