The Kuthu Effect

I was in a sema Tamizh mood today. Was doing all things tamizh. Read Dina Thandi online, cooked sambhar and have been listening to all the new song releases. Nothing can beat the satisfaction of listening to a rocking ‘kuthu’ song, and Yuvan has come up with an out of the world remix of the classic ‘Vethalaya Pottendi’ for the Ajith version of Billa.
