An exciting story of murder, diamond smuggling and police chase. It almost feels like reading a crime novel. The name of the film is Tik Tik Tik. Directed by Bharathiraja. Released in 1981, it was a huge hit among fans.
Kamal and Madhavi played the lead roles. Madhavi will appear as a modeling girl in this. Radha, Swapna, Nisha and many others have acted along with them.
Sarika has a role of honor. He will be killed before the title. There are various things in this film like different interests, love and lust of the businessmen on the other side of the modeling world.
Similarly, the songs and background music were a treat for the fans. It gave a completely different new experience. Musician Ilayaraja has given western music songs for the film.
The shadow world is dangerous. What is the status of the characters involved? Many films have come based on this.
For example, watch Vallavan Oruvan. The song Palingunal Er Malaya which featured in it got a special status among the fans.
Similarly, the songs of this film are also sweet. There is some kind of secret and mystery. The model’s death is mysteriously staged at the very beginning of the film. The fan who watches the film begins to eagerly search for what is the shadow world behind it.
This is the song playing at that time…Oru Nilag Kaalam…You will ask why such a great song is in this film. This song has so much taste.
The chorus takes us somewhere else. Drums sound like action. But in this song it vibrates slowly. If that is not enough, Ilayaraja makes the mind melt in the music with clarinet and guitar. Only then does Janaki start singing the pallavi.
Vairamuthu has penned the lyrics of women taking pride in their individuality and charm in this song featuring 3 modeling beauties namely Madhavi, Radha and Swapna.
In other words, if you see a beautiful woman, you will say that the waterfall is standing. Janaki would have sung these lines in a seductively secretive voice.
Vehicles move fast on roads. It is clear on listening that this song has evolved into a musical form of various images such as tall buildings, the mystery behind the fun celebrations, European scented beauty products.
In the middle of the song, a jati ko in the voice of DP Gopalakrishnan comes and makes us mesmerize.
Nahrudana…theeranana…theeranana…with the beat of the drums, we will start singing this jati as he sings it. Whether such a caste comes only in this film or not.
Go and watch Chinnaveedu starring K. Bhagyaraj. It will come. We can hear DV Gopalakrishnan’s Jati in the song Ada Macham Una Machan.
Ilayaraja is left to play the drums throughout the song. Janaki had a lot of ability to absorb the forms of his imagination. Similarly Ilayaraja also had the ability to realize Janaki’s diversity.
This mutual understanding of the two has become a treat for the fans.
Similarly, another mysterious song will come called yesterday this time by the river. It is sung by Lata Rajinikanth.
The film featured only one duet. Poonmayile is a song called Poo Malarnthita Natamitu. This is the melody of KJ Jesudas, Jensi.
The song begins with a jati for Bharatanatyam. First, Mritangam sets the rhythm in Carnatic style of music. Accordingly Jesus will sing I love you.
Madhavi is performing Bharatanatyam while watching this song in the film. Hero Kamal is mesmerized by her wide eyed sins. Carnatic music, melodious violin music blends gently with it. Only Ilayaraja can make such a musical blend.
The same film was remade in Hindi with the name Karishma. RD Burman composed the music. However, it could not compensate for the Tamil movie song. The reason for that is Ragadevan…musician…Laiyaraja.
Kamal is coming as a photographer in this film. He comes across as a very Jewish person and comes across as shrill throughout the film.
Similarly, Madhavi will also be very beautiful. The chemistry of both of them is well worked out throughout the film.
