This is a hit song from the movie Moodupani starring Prathap Pothan and Shoba, directed by Balu Mahendra. This film had been based on the superhit Hollywood movie Psycho by the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. Prathap Pothan had given a creditable performance in the movie. This movie had been Illayaraja's 100th movie. There had been only two songs in this movie. This song had been sung by K J Yesudas. The movie had not done too well. Prathap Pothan had not been able to make a mark as an actor in the industry in spite of having been a good actor. He had married actress Radhika. But Prathap Pothan himself had become a director later and had directed movies such as Vetri Vizhaa, Seevalaperi Paandi, etc. Illayaraja had produced many such melodious compositions during that period.
