Pudhiya Raagam was an audacious attempt by Jayachitra to revive her fortunes at the fag end of her career. The movie was written, directed and produced by Jayachitra. And of course, she played the lead opposite Rahman. Interestingly, Pudhu Pudhu Arthangal released two years before this movie, and it had Jayachitra playing the mother-in-law of Rahman.
As the movie is about two singers, Ilaiyaraaja had a ball with his music. For instance, this song allows Mano to have a controlled freedom in a ghazal based song. The flute interludes play a major role in the song.
