What they say…

Director Sathyashiva: Kazhugu, my debut film, was lauded by one and all. Sivappu with a powerful storyline is sure to appeal to filmgoers.

Hero Naveen Chander: I have acted in Andala Rakshasi in Telugu. When Sivappu came my way, I did not want to miss it as it was backed by a reputed production house, helmed by a good director and it had all the right ingredients to be able to click at the box office.

Music composer N.R. Raghunanthan: I was the composer of Thenmerkku Paruvakkatru, but now Sivappu introduces me as a singer. I sang the sad version of the song ‘Oru Kanam’ to show how it would sound. When the director and producer heard it, they liked it and wanted to retain it.

Music Highlights: There are five songs in the album and one is a repeat. ‘Sadugudu Vizhiyil’ written by Kabilan Vairamuthu and sung by Hariharan provides a good start to the album. All the other songs are written by Snehan. Karthik and Shreya Ghoshal come together for ‘Kothikuthe Manasu Ulaiya,’ a beautiful duet. ‘Oru Kanam Vanam Mannum,’ a breezy number, is rendered by Sriram Parthasarathy. The mood changes from joy to sorrow in the version rendered by the composer. ‘Kadavula Paru Evan Kathai Enna Kelu’, sung by Velmurugan, wraps up the album on a poignant note.
