A woman-centric film, Pavithra had Raadhika in the lead role and Nasser and Ajit in supporting roles. Though it won two national awards, the film failed to appeal to the audience. For AR Rahman, Pavithra happened between two of his biggest hits Kaadhalan and Karuthamma. The album had melodies written by Vairamuthu and Pazhani Bharathi and sung by Mano, Unnikrishnan, Chithra, Swarnalatha, Shahul Hameed, and SP Balasubramaniam’s daughter Pallavi. Sevvanam Chinna Pen sung by Mano and Pallavi is the most hummable track while Chithra’s Azhagu Nilave is the track that you would love to listen to again.
