He began his musical journey playing the keyboards for music director Vidyasagar for over a decade, until Arul Dev branched out independently with Patta Potti 50 50. After his film Pari and an unreleased Pakanom Pola Irukku, Arul continues living the music director dream with Nagarpuram.

The film stars Akhil and Srividya and is directed by N P Sarathy. Keeping the action based love story theme in mind, Arul has taken special care to give the right tone to the six tracks and the background score.

Speaking about it to City Express, he says,“Several tracks have a strong classical base with a touch of folk. The melody Mazhaiye Mazhaiye has been a big hit with netizens already. Andha Devadhai is a rap based song with a folk infusion. Veyile Veyile is a strong raga based number but sounds modern. The theme song has only humming and instruments.”

Arul dev reveals that the lyrics of the rap type number Rupathereka Mastha thaan da are a take on the Rupa Thera Masthana Hindi hit of the 60’s. Arul dev has used the live Chennai Strings Orchestra for the background music.
