Sid Sriram is collaborating with Illayaraaja for the first time and we are absolutely chuffed! “Unna Nenachu” from Mysskin’s Psycho is the first song to be released, and it has already gained a whopping 400,000 views.

This will also be the first time Illayaraaja is working with director Mysskin.

Psycho, starring Udhayanidhi Stalin, Aditi Rao Hydari and Nithya Menen in lead roles, is expected to release on 27 December, right in time for the Christmas holidays.

The song is a melody with lyrics by Kabilan. The video has visuals from the film in which Udhayanidhi, who is seen wearing dark shades, poses with a guitar in hand. He seems to be performing for a small group in the song’s visuals. Surrounded by fairy lights, Aditi is seen standing with a forlorn expression. Sid Sriram’s voice adds aching sadness to the song’s lyrics.

The film is psychological thriller, it is reportedly based on the tale of Angulimala (finger necklace) which is a central story in Buddhism. Bankrolled by Arun Mozhi Manickam under his Double Meaning Productions banner, PC Sreeram has done the cinematography.

Meanwhile, Mysskin is currently camped in Bristol for the shooting of Vishal’s Thupparivaalan sequel. Debutant Ashya plays the female lead and the rest of the cast includes Prasanna, Nasser, Rahman, Gauthami and Suresh Chakravarthy. Ilaiyaraaja will once again collaborate with Mysskin for this film.

Another recent release for Sid Sriram is “Kannu Thangam” from Mani Ratnam’s Vaanam Kottattum. The singer, who has turned music composer for this film, has also sung in it along with Shakthisree Gopalan.
