It looks like Lokesh Kanagaraj has mastered the art of incorporating vintage songs in crucial, but unexpected scenes. The first time he did that was in his sophomore film, Kaithi, a couple of times. Aasai Athigam Vachu from Marupadiyum and Jumbalakka from En Swasa Kaatre were used smartly in pivotal sequences in the action thriller, which went on to become some of the most enjoyable portions of the movie.
Later, Karutha Machan from Pudhu Nellu Pudhu Naathu was used in Master. In his recent release Vikram, the peppy song Chakku Chakku Vathikuchi from Asuran was used interestingly, leaving the audience entertained to the core.
Many music lovers have searched the song in YouTube after watching Vikram and have left interesting comments, too. Needless to say, the number of views the song has on YouTube has increased rapidly in the last few days. Music director Harris Jayaraj took to Twitter to announce that he is happy to see the song going viral after years and recollected working on it as its programmer.
Adithyan was the music director of the Asuran which was released in 1995. Harris tweeted, "I am glad to see this peppy vintage song going Viral, which was composed by Mr.Adithyan and programmed by me. This song was recorded at VGP studio, in 1995 (sic)."
Interestingly, Mansoor Ali Khan, who is seen dancing to peppy tunes in the song, was the first choice of Lokesh to play the lead role in Kaithi. He had revealed it after the film's release. But finally, Karthi got lucky to essay the protagonist in the movie.
Music lovers and fans of Harris have been showering praises on him for having come up with a peppy song which was ahead of times in terms of orchestration and music production.
