The makers had recently released the soundtrack of the upcoming Amazon Prime Original series Putham Pudhu Kaalai Vidiyaadhaa and it has taken the internet by storm. The soundtrack by GV Prakash has been receiving an overwhelming response with several recreations already. The songs are fast becoming a rage, especially its title track ‘Putham Pudhu Kaalai Vidiyaadhaa…’ that is composed and sung by the musical powerhouse GV Prakash Kumar. The song is written by Kaber Vasuki and is also sung by Yaamini Ghantasala. 

Recently, the students of ITT Madras surprised the musician with their recreation of the title track of the anthology. They performed the cover version at Saarang, the annual festival of IIT Madras.

Reacting to the recreation of the track by the students, the composer said that he is delighted. He said the song was extremely good and well-executed. "This rendition was a different take on the song, like an electric version, very beautiful and looked very professional. I loved the guitar on the song. I can relate to it as I had programmed this song myself,” he said in a press statement. The artist shared the recreation on his social media too.
