This song is what I call a Ilaiyaraaja Genre – A folkish tune but the interludes are filled with western wind instruments and techno beats  – the seamless transition will baffle you. I thought that this song was rendered by Malaysia Vasudevan and if you listen it for the first time, you will guees that it was sung by him but SP Balasubramaniam surprises you with his delivery.

Ellam Inbamayam is a remake (official or unofficial?) of Hello Partner – a Nagesh movie from 1972. Probably, Kamal Hassan wanted to emulate his most favourite actor and he adorns 9 different getups in the movie. The songs match the movie as they were quirky and different from the usual.

Barla Barla from Ellam Inba Mayam is a quirky, freakish Ilaiyaraaja genre song that fuses a folkish tune with western instruments and orchestration.
