One of the most popular Tamil singers of our time, Sid Sriram has taken on the role of music director for the upcoming film Vaanam Kottatum. The first song from the film, Kannu Thangom, was released yesterday. And we daresay, it is bloody amazing.
Sung by Sid himself, along with Shaktisree Gopalan, Kannu Thangom is a slow jam, with lyrics that betray a village setup for the film. The lyrics have been penned by Siva Ananth.
AR Rahman launched his blue eyed boy’s tune on Twitter yesterday.

The film, written by Mani Ratnam and directed by Dhana (Padaiveeran), stars Sarathkumar, Radikaa Sarathkumar, Vikram Prabhu, Aishwarya Rajesh, Madonna Sebastian, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj, Nandaa, Amitash, Balaji Sakthivel and Madhusudhana Rao.
Vaanam Kottatum is set to hit the screens towards the end of 2019.
Sid has done a brilliant job with Kannu Thangom. Shaktisree’s vocals harmonise with his perfectly, leaving no room for error in the meticulously composed 3 minute tune. The haunting tune has his stamp all over it. And we Sid Sriram fans wouldn’t have it any other way.
