     13The former bureaucrat Rajasekharan’s debut 
     14feature is an Ilaiyaraja-derived pop phantasy 
     15about India’s classical heritage. The genre 
     16usually features tragedies of unrequited love 
     17and how women are crucial to the creative 
     18muse of infantile geniuses. The film is set in the 
     191950s in feudal Tanjore. Babu, ten years 
     20younger than the unmarriageable Yamuna, is 
     21seduced by his voluptuous neighbour 
     22Thankamma, but he rejects her subsequent 
     23advances, causing her to commit suicide. This 
     24then enables Babu to find his true vocation as a 
     25musician under the tutelage of master 
     26Ranganna (Venu), as well as his true love and 
     27muse, Yamuna. The music, aesthetically 
     28resistant to the commercialism which besets the 
     29film, is emplotted into the crisis when Babu is 
     30forced to ‘sell’ it in order to raise money for his 
     31dying teacher. His failure in maintaining his 
     32incorruptibility forces him onto the streets of 
     33Madras, whence he is rescued by Yamuna who 
     34reinflates his musical genius.
