- Sung by K.J.Yesudas and P.Madhuri. Music by G.Devarajan.

- I am not sure if Madhuri sang outside G.Devarajan's music in TFM. Her voice seems to be a mix of S.P.Shailaja's and Jency's.

- This was the first big hit for G.Devarajan in TFM. Other notable songs in this movie are 'neelak kadalin Oraththil' and the one that was repeated every Good Friday in oLiyum oliyum, 'dEva maindhan pOgindraan'. The film starred Gemini Ganesan,Muthuraman and a bunch of other stars. An interesting bit from an article in rediff:

Kamal never really set out to become an actor. His dream was to direct, and he started off as assistant with dance master Thankappan. He began his stint with Thankappan in Annai Velankanni, in which he also went on to appear, in a miniscule cameo, as Jesus Christ (watch for him in the scenes where Jesus carries the cross to Calvary). It is Kamal that you see in the song Deiva Mainthan Pogindraan, which details the Stations of the Cross. At the time, Kamal was in his late teens.
