Lyrics: Na Muthukumar
Kireedam, this name made me think of a malayalam movie in 89 .. with the same name..
The same was directed by sibi malayail with casts ranging from Mohanlal, Parvathi, Thilakan, Jagathy Sreekumar, Murali, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Kochin Haneefa, Jagadeesh, Manian Pillai Raju, Sankaradi, Philomina, Oduvil Unnikrishnan, Mammukoya, etc...
The story is about the relation ship of a father and son getting worse when some unexpected incidents happened in the town where the father (who is a police constable) got transfered. The son(Role played by Mohanlal : sethu ) entered in to fight with a local gangster to save his father. and he was typecast as a gangster as well. The twists, the turns were all beautifully portrayed, and here sethu is away from his family, branded as a gunda (gangster). Some funny moments were brought on screen with Kochin Haneefa lighting the end of the free flow laughter. And who can forget the song in kireedam "kanneer poovinte kavilil thalodi....", the wrecked mind state of sethu and the sad mom played by Kaviyoor ponnamma.
A must to watch movie in 89 which helped Mohanlal to get a special mention in national film awards and this later was remade in hindi with the title Gardish, and the sequel of the Malayalam movie was made in 93 named 'Chenkol'
So lets wait.. wait for the moment the new tamil movie Kireedam is released...
Think the audio is already released and songs started circulating.
