Listen to the audio clip below .

This Interlude starts with the Flute melody followed by the Strings .It is like , as though the Flute is questioning and the Strings answering , with a Harp/Bell glissando at the end of each phrase . The Violins take over from here in a higher octave and later the melody is played alternatively by the Santoor and Flute duo .

It was Ilaiyaraaja who used (introduced) this technique of layering Acoustic instruments with Synthesizers . Listen to the Flute bit & you will get to know that the Flute is layered with a Synth tone either in a different octave or played in counter parts of the melody .
Back to the Quiz......Which Song/Movie is this ?
