A short one this time.. As usual, the comments are moderated until a certain number of correct answers are received.
1. There is a unique similarity between a song each from Kaathirukka Neramillai, Rang De Basanti and Varanam Ayiram. Though it can be argued that the similarity extends to a song in Silambattam, the genre of the latter song is different, thus making it miss the similarity of t he first three songs. What is the 'relationship' between the first three songs?
Clue: Look at the bolded word. The first ever Ilayaraja song can also be added to the songs mentioned above.
Ans: The songs are: Yeh machi machi (Kathirukka neramillai), Hey saala (RDB) and Machi machi (Varanam ayiram). The Silambattam song is 'Machan machan'. Now you know what I meant by the 'relationship'.. ;)
