This is one of my favourite songs and features in my all-time best songs list of Raaja. Actor from street plays tries to woo a village girl, and the song is based on his exploits. En Uyir Thozhan is a movie that didn’t do any good for any of the actors in the film. All the actors were fresh faces – Babu became paralysed in his fourth movie after an accident during a stunt sequence, Thennavan who didn’t get many opportunities but later came back after 12 years as Kai in Gemini while Rama came back after 20 years in Aval Peyar Tamilarasi.
The movie was a box-office failure, but the songs and score were brilliant. The movie shows the rise of an actor and how he becomes a political bigwig through hook and crook.
