Actor Arun Vijay's Yaanai will see blockbuster Tamil director Hari of Saamy, Aaru, and Singam franchise fame returning to the roots and is a film that is set in the backdrop of Dhanushkodi and several other important locales in Tamil Nadu. The upcoming mass rural action family entertainer has been produced under the Drumsticks Productions banner and features youth sensation Priya Bhavani Shankar as the female lead, with chart-buster music director G. V. Prakash Kumar composing the songs and the background score. With post-production works currently underway, the makers on Thursday released the much-awaited first single track titled 'Yelamma Yela' from Yaanai featured on the lead pair Arun Vijay and Priya Bhavani Shankar.
Sung by Arya Dhayal, 'Yelamma Yela' has lyrics written by Snehan and is a peppy rural folk number that will appeal to youngsters and the elderly alike for its lilting melody. Director Hari has often made films that are set in the rural backdrop and GV Prakash, who has excelled throughout the course of his career in delivering the goods in the genre, comes out firing on all cylinders. Without being loud, 'Yelamma Yela' no doubt has our feet tapping and can be expected to climb the charts as Yaanai gears up for its release.
