Here is a beautiful duet song from the movie ‘rahasya rathri’ means ‘Secret Night’, partially colour film released during 1980.
It was a suspense movie directed by Shri M S Kumar. Shri Radha Ravi’s first Kannada film as an actor.
Shankar Ganesh duo has scored the music and the tune/rhythms of this song reminds me of
MSVs ‘vizhiye kathai ezhudhu’ song from ‘Urimaikural’ of 1974.
