"Periyar Kuthu" is a revolutionary independent song that has resonated with audiences both domestically and internationally. Starring Simbu, the fiery track was released in 2018 and produced by the acclaimed producer Deepan Boopathy. Recently, Deepan revealed the heartwarming journey behind the creation of "Periyar Kuthu".

The origins of "Periyar Kuthu" can be traced to Madan Karky's brilliance and lateral thinking. Ramesh Thamilmani, a gifted music director, expertly crafted Karky's lyrics into a captivating song as a touching homage to Periyar on his birthday. Deepan and his crew had high hopes for the song's reception especially among the ardent Periyar followers but the response surpassed their expectations.

"We firmly believed in the lyrics' profundity of inspiration. We made a sincere attempt to honour Periyar, and we are incredibly appreciative of the listeners' everlasting love and support," shared Deepan. Deepan revealed that Simbu's presence in the project was a lucky coincidence. The actor, who is Deepan's long time friend and collaborator, fell in love with the music during a casual visit to the studio.

The song's potential turned huge when STR decided to contribute his voice and appear in the music video. As Deepan aptly put it, "With STR's touch, the song's value skyrocketed." But there are plenty of difficulties in the background, as is frequently the case in the music and film industries.

The first obstacle for "Periyar Kuthu" was qn agency's subpar computer graphics (CG) work. In order to achieve the song's intended visual narrative, a deeper technical proficiency was required and it pushed the budget's initial restrictions. The song's charm extended beyond the borders of India.

Periyar Kuthu enthralled audiences all around the world and received praise from Tamil Sangams everywhere, underscoring its astounding influence and reach. Deepan, who has always been appreciative of his followers, conveyed his deep gratitude to them. The fans of Periyar Kuthu are its lifeline. The song's success is a reflection of their steadfast support.

Deepan also teased the possibility of a brand new song that will be dedicated to Periyar, filling the fans with keen anticipation. "Periyar Kuthu" by Deepan Boopathy is a piece of work that symbolises impactful artworks amid the mainstream industry.
