Tamil cinema always finds some quirky situations for songs. One of the situations that was exploited heavily in the 80s and early 90s was the -“item song to con the villain”. Ilaiyaraaja has some interesting compositions in this particular genre. In the next few days, I am going to explore the songs in this genre. Starting with Superstar 😉

The rhythm patterns, the use of wind instruments and percussion are a treat in this song.
