Among the big star heroes in Tamil cinema, quite a few of them sing well too. The prominent names that come to mind immediately are Kamal Haasan, Chiyaan Vikram, Vijay, Dhanush, and STR. These heroes mostly sing a song or two in almost all their films, and their hit ratio is mighty impressive. Their fans are instantly attached to these songs for obvious reasons, and the film also gets added promotional mileage when the hero sings. Vikram has now sung a motivational song in his upcoming summer release Kadaram Kondan, directed by Rajesh M Selva and produced by Kamal Haasan. Ghibran has composed the music for the film, and he has called it a motivational song to begin our day. Viveka has written the lyrics.
Vikram had two releases last year - Sketch and Saamy Square. In Sketch, he had sung the beautiful ‘Kanave Kanave’, with music by Thaman. In Saamy Square with music by Devi Sri Prasad, he had crooned the peppy ‘Pudhu Metro Railu’ along with the film’s heroine Keerthy Suresh. Both these songs made it to the list of chartbusters last year, thereby setting the tone well for his new song in Kadaram Kondan.
Kadaram Kondan is an action thriller shot largely in Malaysia. It was a film which was supposed to be done with Kamal Haasan, but Vikram took it up eventually. The film may either release in April or May, based on how its post-production and other pre-release formalities are done.
