“Jaathikkathottam”, the first single from upcoming film Thanneer Mathan Dinangal, is going viral for all the right reasons. The music video has already been watched more than a million times within three days of its debut on YouTube.
Composed by Justin Varghese of Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela fame, Suhail Koya has written the lyrics for “Jaathikkathottam”. It is sung by Soumya Ramakrishnan and Devadutt Bijibal.
Watch Thanneer Mathan Dinangal song Jaathikkathottam here:
“Jaathikkathottam” follows the blooming romance between two teenagers. The performance of Mathew Thomas and Anaswara Rajan has struck the right chord with the audience, making the song an instant hit. The visuals of the song also evoke a sense of nostalgia of school romance, and a lot of joy that comes with it.
Mathew made his screen debut earlier this year with widely acclaimed Kumbalangi Nights. In Thanneer Mathan Dinangal, whose literal translation is Watermelon Days, he appears to be playing a more significant role.
Going by the trailer released earlier, Mathew Thomas plays a student who despises the flamboyant teacher (Vineeth Sreenivasan), who is admired by everyone, including Mathew’s dream girl. The film seems to follow the ensuing humour that stems from the conflict between the teacher and the student. If the trailer is anything to go by, Vineeth seems to have let his hair down while playing the popular teacher in the school-based drama.
Written and directed by Girish A D, the film is set to release soon.
