Poonthotta Kavalkaran was directed by Senthilnathan – son of Jambulingam who directed Nam Naadu with MGR. He went on to make many other movies but none made a mark like Poonthotta Kavalkaran. It was one of the hits that pushed the popularity of Vijayakanth and there have been many other movies with similar storylines. In fact, Vijayakanth himself acted in Periyanna that had a similar storyline.
Another interesting facet about this song – it’s a rarity that you get to listen to a folk song from KJ Yesudas and it gives a different sort of freshness to the song and the celebration is just infectious.
