EDITORS’ NOTES

While the film's themes tell of the difficulties in a classical dance career, there are no such problems settling in to the accompanying soundtrack. Ilaiyaraaja effortlessly encapsulates the essence of classical Indian music in Swarna Kamalam, never deviating from the brutal simplicity of its production. Traditional instruments are in abundance with tablas and sitars taking centre stage—it was this pure approach that helped the film win multiple awards. Journey back to the genesis of India’s modern entertainment industry with Swarna Kamalam.
