Unaroo was Mani Ratnam’s second movie and his first direct Malayalam movie. He was bold enough that time to depict the trade union clashes in 1984. It was critically acclaimed but was not a financial success. The song featured today is Theeram Thedi but when you listen to the song, you might get reminded of Roja Ondru Mutham Ketkum Neram from Komberi Mookan. The Tamil version was re-tuned for Komberi Mookan in the same year. It’s quite fascinating to see the differences in orchestration and interludes as the songs are two different situations.
