Song: bhuvaneswari aruLpuri aadhari
Film: Thaiye neeye thunai
Singers : KJY, Chitra
Lyrics: Vaalee
Music : Raveendran

-What a song. I watched the movie just for this song. I need not mention that i was totally disappointed ..it was picturised on Pandian and Srividya(soninlaw -mother inlaw). This film had 'ungaL abimaana nakshathirangaL' which included amman films mandatory artistes KRVijaya, NaLini etc. The only redeeming factor were the songs.

Valee has done an excellent job with lyrics(difficult sandhams)


Mrs charumathi writes:

"Bhuvaneswari aruL puri" is beautifully composed by Raveendran and soulfully rendered by KJY and KSC.

It is based on raaga, Revathi and set to 'Eka ThaaLam'. It has the following aaro and avrokanam and swarasthanam:

S R1 M1 P N1 S
S N1 P M1 R1 S

Revathi can be said janyam of Mela's 2, 8 and 14.

In the song, beat starts before the humming.
Normally KSC makes hardly any pronunciation mistake, however KJY and KSC made pronunciation mistakes in this song. May be it is a deliberate attempt. Example:

Bhuvaneshwary - Buvaneswary (actual)
Shankari - Sankari (actual)
Sharanam/charanam - saranam (actual).

This song can be only sung by well known singer because of the following reasons:

1) Pallavi has brighas in the following line: 'soolini maadhavan sridharan sOdhariyE'

2) Low and High stayi (pitch) used in the song. For example, in saraNam 1,

Low - High
paavamO - vinaiyin
thaapamO - unathu
kOpamO - viLaintha
saapamO - karunai

3) the song is composed in ascending order and this adds the classical beauty to the song. For example:

S - vazhiyum punalil undhan thiruvadi nanaiyatum
M - nanaintha piraku undhan thiruvuLLam kaniyattum
P - kanintha kanivil undhan kadaikaNkaL oLiratum
N - iruNdu kidakkum engaL pozhuthukaL pularatum

The Music director used fantastic rhythm through out the song. For example:

1. tha ki ta thaam - tha ki ta
bha va mo - vinaiyin
2. tha ki ta - tha ki ta - tha ka - tha ka di mi - tha ka ja nu
vazhiyum - puna lil - undhan - thi ru va di na nai yatum

The composition touches high "Pa" at the end of charaNam 1 & 2. Raveendran has used mirudhangam, Tabla and veena really well in the song, specially he used 'urumi' to express the emotional devotional (bhakthi paravasam) feeling.

It is a duet 'devotional' song which is not common in music.

This song is a nice example for why Revati is apt for devotional songs. The pallavi 'bhuvaneshwai arul puri aadhari', which just sweeps the full scale up & down, brings out the bakthi & urukkam feelings so well.

I'm still listening to the song & lyrics, more comments later.

Ramki,

I am/was from West (Pazhiya :) ) Mambalam and Kumar used to be my tailor too. He did a good job with my narrow trousers (my dad from the bell-bottom era never liked his narrow trouser style). I was with him till 1986 or so and if I remember right he was busy in films after then and brached off.....

He became pretty popular after the Kamalahassan movie "Satya"... although I did not know that he ended up directing movies. I remember meeting him in Cuddalore once. Sad to know that he is know more!

BTW - which part of Mambalam were you from? I used to stay close to the Rly Station.

Song: idhu kaNavugaL viLaindhidum kaalam
Film: Nizhal thedum nenjangaL
Singers : Janaki, Deepan Chakravarthi
Lyrics: ?
Music : iLaiyaraja

-I was hooked to this song when i first listened to it few years ago on oli 96.8. As far as i know vividh bharathi has never aired this beauty.
The range of the song suits Deepans voice very well and this is one of his best.
I remember 2 other songs from 'nizhal thedum nenjangal'-
mangala vaanam (MV,BSS)
pookaL sindhungaL (SJ)

-I may not be rite, but i think Radhika,sivakumar acted in this film.
-I apologise for the sumaar quality of the song. I had this song on a tape and tried my best to remove the noise during conversion.

Song: kiLi irandu kootukuLLe
Film: Manidha Manidha
Singers : Mano, Minmini
Lyrics: Vairamuthu
Music : ARR

-ARRs interludes are highlights of this song. Im not a big fan of Mano or Minmini but both have done a decent job.
'Manidha Manidha' is telugu dubbing and i think it had Nagma and DrRajshekar.
-Thiru what are other songs from this film(I know you will know:))

Oh Maane Maane was a faithful remake of the Hindi Movie Julie! Mohan, Uravashi in the lead with Thengai & Sukumari as Urvashi's parents. I cant remember the rest of the cast.

Another song I rememeber is Kamal's pon maanai theduthe for Mohan.

Ramki
1st January 2005, 07:00 AM
RC 'Julie' was remade from 'chattakaari'(Lakshmi, Mohan and Sukumari).

Julie had Laskhmi, Vikram, Sridevi(she played Lakshmi's sister),Nadira(sukumaris role). Julie had few soulful numbers by Rajesh roshan including 'bhool gaya sub kuch' , 'dil kyaa kare', 'My heart is beating', 'yeh raatein nahi puraani'.
Todays pick is tamil version of 'yeh raatein'. A sweet melody in Hindi became a party song in tamil.
Other songs in 'oh maane maane' -
'abhiramiye annaiye' -PS and another female singer
'roja ondru uLLankaiyil poothadhu'-SPB,SJ
'oh devan'- SPB,SJ

Song: Chinna kaNNe chithira kaNNe keLamma
Film: polladhavan
Singer : PSuseela
Lyrics: Vaali
Music : MSV

-This melody is worth listening just for Susheelas voice(not that other factors are bad). Her voice is amazingly sweet and soft in this song.
'Polladhavan' had Rajinikanth, Lakshmi, sivachandran and Sripriya. It was directed by Muktha V Srinivasan.
It had 4 good songs by MSV.
'naan polladhavan','naane endrum raaja'(SPB Solos)
'adho vaarandi vaarandi' (SPB,VJ) and today's pick.
Polladhavan was a predictable, run off the mill Super* film. I believe it was an average grosser at the B.O.

Polladhavan was a predictable, run off the mill Super* film.

Predictable yes, but compared to the naan potta savaal's and pokkiri raja's, this was an ok movie. Especially the tiffs between Rajni & Lakshmi in the first part.

This song is for Lakshmi (who comes to work as a babysitter) to Baby anju who is ever naughty and wouldn't budge to anyone. Of course she'll become obedient within a song.

I think this song is desh based.

Song: aazhkadalil thathaLithu naan edutha
Film: Raagam thedum Pallavi
Singer : SPB and ?
Lyrics: TRajendar
Music : TR

- A beautiful solo by SPB that has excellent lyrics by TR.
This is one of his good albums.
'Raagam thedu pallavi' had shankar, Anu and Rajeev.
'Moongilile paatisaithu' and todays pick are the best songs of this film which also add 'indha malligai manase'(SJ), 'sugam sugam'(SJ). I think there is one more SJ solo(a sad song).
I have not seen this film so im not aware of the situation but from the lyrics it looks like another case of oru thalai raagam.

Great pick Ramki... I remember listening to this song in the radio long back.. never knew the movie name etc.. Thanks...

RC
5th January 2005, 07:22 AM
It wasnt another case of oru thalai raagam. Rayil PayanangaLil was in fact another version of oru thalai raagam, sort of. I have seen this movie looong before.
Shankar plays the role of an aspiring director. Rajeev, I think, plays the role of a rich friend willing to produce a movie that Shankar is directing. Anu plays the love interest of Shankar. Rajeev also lays his eys on Anu and the story revolves around these characters.
In the end Anu falls prey to Rajeev and Shankar goes mad.

Song: aadidum odamaai aanadhe
Film: Suvarillaadha sithirangaL
Singer : PSuseela,SPB
Lyrics: Vaali
Music : Gangai Amaran

-This duet was a Ceylon radio favorite. Though the other duet (kaadhal vaibhogame) is still finding air time, today's pick didnt get much coverage on Indian radios.
'suvar illa chithirangaL' was Bakhyarajs first directorial venture and it was a flop. As I have not seen this film, i dont know much about the story(except that Bakhyaraj acted as a tailor). Sudhakar, Sumathi(ex-baby turned kumari) are the other actors.
-Are there any other song in this film(other than the 2 mentioned)?

sung by SPB. It should be a cultural program song, though I dont remember seeing this one on the screen.

Sudhakar, a college student and a rich guy, and Sumathi fall in Love. Bhagyaraj, with parents Kallapetti and Gandhimadhi live across the street from Sumathi's also secretly loves her. Goundamani, a tailor, is also in the same street. Sudhakar walks out of his family when his parents disapprove of his love and lives with Sumathy's family (mom and sister or/and brother). Unable to make the ends meet (I think POTW song is a background song during this time) they all commit suicide in the end.

Its one my top 10 favs of her songs. The starting aalapana and the way she sing 'kaNNa' are outstanding.
-'Thuraimugam' had Arun pandian and Shobana in the lead.

Song: vaazhugindra makkalukku
Film: ponnagaram
Singer : KJYesudoss
Lyrics: Pulamaipithan
Music : MSViswanathan

PoNnagaram was an interesting film. It was about a brother and sister(sarath Babu and Lavanya) returning to their native village that was once terrorized by their father. The whole village hates them and does everything
to drive the siblings away. I do not remember the exact details but towards the climax the villagers chase Lavanya to shave the hair of her head.
Sarath and Lavanya were very good in their roles. Shobha played Sarath's love interest.
This film also had the sweet duet 'muthu mugamo moga kuzhalo'(JC, VJ)
-Today's pick is noteworthy for its nice lyrics by
Pulamaipithan and ofcourse KJY's voice.

Song: kothamalli poove
Film: kallukuL eeram
Singer : SJanaki, Malaysia Vasudevan
Lyrics: Gangai Amaran
Music : Ilaiyaraja

-A beautiful village song to get you into pongal spirits.The song always make me imaginge green,lushy villages, uncorrupted villagers working on rice fields singing 'esapaatu' , young kids swinging on tree branches,
ladies carrying lunches for their hard working husbands.
Never been to a village but always dreamt of one, thanks to these songs filled with nativity.
This song is just another example of SJanaki's Versatility. Though she is not a tamilian, i always felt that her voice has the 'mannvaasanai'
-'kallukuL eeram' had few new faces(Aruna,vijayashanthi, janakaraj, chandrasekar (not very sure if this his is first film))with sudhakar,venniradai Nirmala and Bharathiraja. I dont think i need to mention the other songs as all of them are very popular.

SJ gives such songs all she has (all her limitations factored) and somehow, on most occasions, it works. Today's song is also a good example of her ability to assume "other" voices - aidhedhedhehe (or something like that, in the beginning of this one) Nathaaga Oni Vachchen (?) - the brief verse before a lovely flute rise and dip - show SJ doing what's become her signature - reveling in her vocal inventiveness. She offers a fine exposition in the charanams as well.
The chorus and varied voices/tones also hark back to a song from another age - composed by SC - "Bichchua" from Madhumati.

Even GA manages an a good outing as a lyricist is songs such as these. I haven't seen a kollththamallipoovu in this lifetime, but the brothers (with SJ) sure turn up a heady fragrance!

Song: kaatrodu kuzhalin naadhame
Film: kodai mazhai
Singer : Chitra
Lyrics: ?
Music : Ilaiyaraja

Mrs charumathi writes:

"Kaatroodu kuzhalin naadham" song is set in "Simmhendra
madhyama" raagam and aadhi thaaLam. "Simmhendra Madhyama"
raagam is57th "MeLam". It has the following "Aarohanam"
and "avarohanam":

Aarohanam: Sa Ri2 Ga1 Ma2 Pa Da1 Ni2 Sa
Varohanam: Sa Ni2 D1 Pa Ma2 Ga1 Ri2 Sa

The song has an excellent start with small "Alaapana"
alongwith the mridhangam piece. The small "Thani" alongwith
the "Korvais" between the pallavi and the first charanam makes
it more pleasant to listen.

The tune of the first and second charanams is set in 2
different ways. The tune of FIRST HALF of Second "charanam" is
different. The tune of SECOND HALF of second "charanam"
is similar to the tune of the first "charanam".

The FIRST HALF of the second charanam is based on the
following aspects of Carnatic music:

1. Madhdhima Kaalam (2nd speed)
2. Song has "Jadhis" and also the instruments are played
separately.
3. Setting of "Korvai".

Normally in a song, if the swaram is sung with "Korvai
amaippu", the song will end with either pallavi or the last
line sung. But this song continues with "Sahithiyam"
similar to the first charanam, which makes it quite unique.

The mridhangam with beautiful "Korvai" set in a carnatic
style adorns this song.

The lyrics of the song expresses the eager awaiting of
Radha for Lord kannan's arrival which makes it equivalent to
divine Love. In the musical forms, this reminds the "Padham".
It is noteworthy that the song can be considered as a
semi-classical song.

- 'Kodai mazhai' had vidya, Lakshmi, arundhadhi.
This was the first film by Mukta v sundar.
I watched this film in 1986. Very average movie. Other than todays pick, this film had thuppaki kaiyil eduthu(IR sang for Vidya) and one SJ solo(for Lakshmi). I have been looking high and low for this SJ solo(then thoongum poove) , if any one has this song please send it to me.

An excellent simmendra madhyamam (light but pure, of the 'patham' variety), and a wonderful job by Chitra (except for some of the usual ra/Ra pronunciation mishaps). Most of the charanam/pallavi has no pauses, and the rendition is 'breathtaking'.

Song: aathadi aedho aasaigaL

Lyrics: Vaali
Music : iLaiyaraja

-'anbuchinnam', dubbed version of 'Prema'(Venkatesh, Revathi, Vanisree) didnt see the popularity as it did with its original('Prema' bagged few state awards). This is one of the few non-action movies by Director Suresh Krishna.
This film was also made in Hindi as 'Love'(salmankhan, Revathi) and anand Milind dutifully claimed IR's tunes as his.(even though its a copy i like the 'saathiya thune kya kiya' song by SPB,KSC).
- As far as todays pick , its a beautiful song(well, if you could pardon the mundane 'fill in the blank' lyrics) sung very well by chitra. I always wonder why IR chose Mano to sing the tamil version's of SPB's telugu originals.
I remember two more songs 'Iam sorry' and 'priyathama naa hrudhayama'(what is the tamil equivalent?). I love 'priyathamaa'(its available in MOnline).
-Story line anyone?

I was pleasantly surprised when I heard chitra's voice on 'Cibaca geetmala' during the early 90's. Yes it was 'saathiyaa thune kya kiya'. I hunted for this song the whole week. No northie friends knew chitra's songs, and southie friends asked 'chitra? in hindi?'. Finally found the details only in next week geetmala :) Later it came on air frequently.
Chitra's 'lalalala' is too good in this song. Though the hindi version is a shade better, the tamil version is also good.

Thanks Ramki for this wonderful number.

Ramki, I saw Love in Bangalore. Revathi and Salman start loving after some initial hiccups. Revathi the free bird has an incurable disease. Salman in the last scene will revive her by some strange CPR means. (If I remember corretctly). Padavathi except for Revathi's acting (was my favorite then in my college days) and Saathiya song. If this is how the Venkatesh Starrer was in Telugu, not sure how could this deserve any award at all. The Telugu friends used to curse AM for his lifting and that is when I realized the strong fans for IR in TeFm lovers.

Ramki, there was another song of AM for the film 'Mera Pathi Sirf mera hai -- Maine Dhuje Kath likha -- By SPB and LM' which starred Rekha, Jitender and not sure who. I think this was a remake of 'En Ourushan Thaan enakku Mattum than'. Though hindi songs seems to be a not a lift from this tamil movie, any idea if we have the original version in Tamil/Telugu of that Hindi song?

Music : VSNarasimman

-Sponsor of the song- Naaz

Naaz writes:

FEARLESS LUST



Achchamillai, Achchamillai, much like it’s predecessor, Thanneer, Thanneer, tried too hard. But such is the territory of repetition – two is more, but not necessarily better – and so whatever will be, will be.

Two times the misery?

But they were not thinking along that rhyme scheme.

TT& AA or AA & TT (in vein, you know): One left you dehydrated with rhetoric, and the other launched fearless (expletives omitted) walkouts halfway through.

I’ll let you get the goods on Two Times the Water, but here’s a quick zap on the Fearless one.

The memory dropouts in the following are all my own. Feel free to fill in:
Thaenmozhi (Saritha) is a mill-worker (?) and Loganathan (Rajesh) is a Teacher (??) and every day their paths cross in some truly scenic place that might be Bodi or Thaeni. She loves him for his ideals and sense of cultural pride, and he loves her because she is – actually, he never says.

They are married and have a child, and then things take a turn (sequence?) Loganathan is persuaded to run in the local elections and when he does, he wins. Ah, the sweet taste of power. Loganathan takes to politicking like soup to a tureen, and slowly, Mr. goody-two-shoes falls by the wayside. Thaenmozhi sees the man of her dreams turn into the man of her nightmares – right in front of her open eyes. It’s the beginning of the Anti-Shankarabharanam, KB style.

With Power come the trappings, and here, for a change, the pun works with irony. Loganathan, caught in a vortex of corruption, does not flail. Instead, he flaunts. Alangaram (Pavithra) moves in as his trophy concubine. Thaenmozhi is subjected to some very KB’ish cinematic humiliations. Right around this time you expect a superimposed DD announcer to pop-up on the screen, and say: “Karpil Sirandhaval Kannagiya? Madhaviya? – Idhuve Indraiya Patti Mandraththalaippu…” It’s that ho-hum.

When Thaenmozhi finds out that Loganathan is about to commit something really, really bad (this is a clue – note repetition) she is stirred to stretch her hands and grab the title (answer) Oru Kaikku, Oru Achchamillai.

With garland in hand, Thaenmozhi ascends the stage at Loganathan’s nth victory celebration. The roses hide a sharp, steel blade.

Thaenmozhi – bless her – makes more than two deep gashes in his torso. Twice is not enough, anymore.

And that’s how she moves beyond fear – and even numbers.

The point of it all? Don’t ask.

The best thing about AA was the debut of VS Narasimhan. An accomplished solo-violinist (western classical,) his music buoyed an otherwise desperate and didactic exercise in filmmaking. Aavaramppoovu Aarezhunaalaa, a standout duet in the dulcet voices of PS and SPB, was perhaps the one good motivator for the film’s initial draw. It could well be the prefix to Narasimhan’s name: The identification (song/composer/film/debut) is that complete. VSN also had inspired moments in the compositions for Pudhiyavan and Aayiram Pookkal Malarattum. Why such a creative and gifted musician was unwelcome in TFM beyond a few initial forays should be all but obvious: he was creative AND gifted.

Karisal Tharisu, picturised on Alangaram, and sung by VJ, is a delicious blend of Western guitar and Hindustani tabla – the strum and throb - both perfectly in sync with the seductive impulse of the lyrics. An apprehensive yet eager tease, Alangaram sings this song on the night of her entry into Loganathan’s house as his “new” wife.

The varied baits of a mistress - naïve, impetuous, beautiful and manipulative - are expertly realised by VJ. Here, lust never leaks into lewd.

The brief shiver of a taan after “Podhum Saami Podhum” hits all the erogenous spots with precision. A pause at the sexy “Mudhugai” (how nice it sounds!) leads to the steamy ellipsis of “Sududhey… Moochchu” with rapture. The song is erotic, not easy.

You can come up with a quick roster of the louder amorous moments in TFM on your own?

Here’s the song that got AIRs “moral” knickers in a knot. Ooh, the Mistress of Sex and Spice! Finally, that deferred harvest of Eros is here!

Listen to it once. Listen to it thrice.

Two’s pooh. Ask KB.[/tscii:ba3d4275ca]

Ramki -

Many thanks for featuring the song and the write-up (send-up? :-))
It was fun to think-up!!

RR -

Here's an interesting metaphor: Sex is the Destination to which Seduction is the Road. A song like Karisal Tharisu could have been perverted in many ways - moans, cries and heavy breathing - all amplified and leaving nothing - NOTHING - to the imagination. VJ is an appropriopriate choice, for two reasons: She mines the classical/semi-folk elements of the song with absolute acumen - even the "vaa" endings and "podhums" are done with artistic refinement. Secondly, when essaying such a song, if left to her interpretation, VJ is a singer who errs on this side of baseness and gimmickry. I can think of a few other songs in which (thankfully!) she did not "dhool killappify" -

Tharavaa Naan Tharavaa
Maalai Mudhal Kaalai
Andha Neram Poruththirundhaal
Kaatre Sellu Oru Kaadhal Thoodhu (someone - please! - send me the file if you have it!)
Thodalaam Thottaalum Yogamdhaan
Manjal Arraikkum Bodhu
Naalu Pakkam Vaedar Undu

...and so on.

VSN also stresses subtlety throughout (except for the character lines within) and the song has an interesting division in tempo: it begins with anticipation (Alangaram's,) and in the second charanam the pace accelerates as Alangaram gains confindence (this is the stanza where she addresses Thaenmozhi as Kannagi) This shift is perceptive and creative, and perhaps only available to a discerning ear?

Thank you for the opportunity. The song file credit belongs to Neel D and www.vanijairam.com

Song: mangiyadhor nilavinile
Film: oru manidhanin kadhai
Singers: SPB,SPS(?)
Lyrics: Bharathiyar
Music : MSV or SG?

This is an absolute beauty by SPB. The voice is so soothing to your ears,so soft like melting snow on a warm winter day.
'OMK' - AVM produced the teleserial based on Sivashankaris thodarkadhai in vikadan. Raghuvaran,Madhuri played the lead and i think this teleserial was directed by SPM.
There are 2 more versions of 'mangiyadhor' one by TMS in 'thirumanam' and other by CSJ (shyamalai?).
My guess on MD -MSV. But FM says its by SG

Btw FM your request is next on the list :)

Ramki,
I thought Sumithra played the main role. It came as a one big serial [one VHS Tape] and I thought that it was a movie.

I don't know whether video shops carries this cassette or not :)

OMK is by Chandrabose. That was the time Chandrabose was AVM's aasthaana MD. Madhuri played the wife of Raghuvaran, if I remember it correctly.

T: I think it is OMK, though the song was IOMK!

Ramki: I think this was out as a movie too but not sure if it was the same serial that was rolled out as one.

RC, I think you are right about chandrabose. Makes sense as he has continued MD-ing for several AVM serials now - aachi intl, nimmadhi ungal choice,galatta kudumbam,etc.. But sadly not in quality.. 'mangiyadhor' is incredible. I cannot recall any of his compositions of similar quality.

Song: natarajan kudi konda
Film: salangaiyil oru sangeetham
Singers:SPB
Lyrics: vairamuthu
Music : iLaiyaraja

-Another brilliant solo by SPB. I first listened to this song in a intercollege function at PSG and was very curious to know what film the song was from. Then one fine friday 'oliyum oLiyum' played the song(The one true joy of our fridays :).
'SOS' is a tamil dubbing of telugu 'aalapana' with Mohan, Banupriya, Roopa(OTR fame). This song was picturised on the soo beautiful Banupriya . I think Banupriya played a girl who can't speak but has a penchant for the classical dance. Roopa played the nattuvangam singer and Mohan a railway construction worker. Highlight of the movie were the songs by IR. The songs i know are
'yaarodu yaaro'(SPB)
'yaar azhaithadhu kanavu raaniya'(SPB,SJ)
'kanavaa idhu unmaiyaa'(SPB,SJ)
(There is one more SJ solo in aalapana 'priyatama tama sangeetham'- i'm not aware its tamil equivalent)

I haven't watched the film but from the songs played in oliyum oLiyum i think its wort a watch for Banupriya and her dancing skills and ofcourse the songs.

From Mars
24th January 2005, 01:28 AM
Ramki, I believe Banupriya can speak. She was a dancer in the movie. She was forced to marry the villain, so she escapes with her friend. Mohan is a railway worker, as well a good singer.
This song takes place in a jungle in front of huge 'Natarajar' statue. Banupriya dances for this song.

Song: kai niraiya sozhi
Film: veLLi vizha
Singers: PSuseela, LREswari
Lyrics: vaali
Music : VKumar

This is a lovely duet well sung by LRE and PS with excellent lyrics from Vaali.
'veLLi vizha' had Gemini,Jayanthi,vanisree,srividya,SVaralakshmi etc and IMO first half of 'veLLi vizha' is sindhubhairavi part I.
In 'veLLi vizha' Gemini a popular tennis player married to naive and illiterate Jayanthi.(singer JKB married to naive Sulakshana) Vanisree an ardent fan of Gemini strikes a friendship with him(like suhasini does in SB). But in VV their friendship remains uncorrupted(unlike SB). Post interval jayanthi dies and what happens to GG and Vsree forms the rest of the story.
Todays pick comes when jayanthi starts doubting the friendship between GG and Vsree. PS sings for Jayanthi and LRE for Vsree. But in the same film Vkumar made LRE sing for jayanthi(the melodious 'kaadhoduthaan') and PS for Vsree(irritating 'naan satham pottuthan')
Other songs:
'oru naaL varuvaaL mummy mummy'(TMS,PS)
and my favorite
'unakene kuraichal'(MSV)
All the songs had very good lyrics by vaali.

Song: paniyil nanaiyum malargaL
Film: Priya oh Priya
Singers: Chitra, Mano
Lyrics: vaali
Music : iLaiyaraja

Song requested by yvsMani and RR.

-'Priya oh Priya' is tamil dubbing of Manirathnam's and Anilkapoor's only kannada film 'Pallavi anupallavi' with Lakshmi and Kiran Vairale. I remember watching the songs in chitramala and was very impressed with the song's picturisation (at that time ManiRathnam was a unknown).

Personally today's pick doesnt impress me very much because of the dull rendition by ksc and Mano(listen to original by SPB,SJ in Musicindiaonline). Though the pallavi is very impressive, saranam kind of fizzles out.

RR
27th January 2005, 07:06 PM
Thanks ramki.

I think the song is worth for its pallavi alone. Listen how the tune is taken up by the strings section. The vocals give a sensuous touch, but the strings seem to express the 'rush of feelings' inside. The orchestration goes through a sudden shift in the interludes. Maybe to reflect something in the picturisation. The ending of the song is a 'humming' counterpoint similar to 'ninaivo oru paravai'.
Mano,chitra are ok, though the original is miles ahead.

Song: varuvaai manamohana
Film: Inspector
Singers: MLVasanthakumari,??
Lyrics:
Music : GRamanathan

-This is a unique song interlaced with funny dialogues and good singing by MLV. The dialogues are quiet funny. Im not sure of the situation or the actors in the song but sounds like a director instructing an actress to emote in a dance sequence.

-The tune reminds me of 'kaathirupaan kamala kaNNan'-same raaga?

Mrs Charumathi writes:

"Varuvaai mana mohana" song is set in "Simmendhra Madhyama raagam" and
"Adhi ThaaLam". This raaga is 57th"MeLam".

Aarohanam : Sa Ri2 Ga1 Ma2 pa Dha1 Ni2 Sa
Avarohanam : Sa Ni2 Dha1 Pa Ma2 Ga1 Ri2 Sa This song has excellent orchestration.

Noteworthy are:
"the swara Korvais" of the male singer between the pallavi and charanams 1 and 2;
"The raaga aalaapanai" that follows the line "viraga theeyinaal sarugaai enadhu udal" in charanam 1.

First, I want to confess that I have no idea about the situation or picturisation of the song in the movie. My analysis is based only on the audible aspect of the song.

The song has dialogues in between, sung by a lady in love for her sweetheart, where a male voice (who is an expert in music or a teacher),corrects the female singer in between the lines of the song. I do not know whether to consider "the swara korvais" of the male singer in
between the lines of the song as part of the song composition.

Instead of consdering this as a song, it can be considered as how naturally a rehearsal of the song is done before the final rendition of the song.

When the male voice cuts in between the lines to correct the female singer, a flaw can be detected in the "thaalam". The technical defetcs can be
pardoned due to inadequate technology available in the days of the song.

Alliteartion in the lyrics adds charm to this song.

"MOnai" is found in the following words:

Pallavi : Varuvaai
Varavai

Charanam 1 : Paruva kaalam
Padum paadu

"Edhugai" is found in the followiing words:

Pallavi : varuvaai
Varavai

Charanam 1:
viragath theeyinaal karugumunne

charanam 2:
Paruva
kaalam
urugum
maruvi
tharuga



The music tutor has tried to bring "sahithiya bhaavam" while correcting
"thudiyaai thudikkum" and” karugum"; he could have tried to bring a feeling of longing while singing "varuvaai mana mohana" in pallavi.

He has tried to give a small stress in "viraga theeyinaal" in charanam 1 and "paruva kaalam" in charanam 2; he could have tried to show a feeling of sympathy in the words "urugum" and "irangi".


This song has a hidden message to singers of all times.
Even though singers are perfect in singing, they should try to emote to the meaning of the lyrics and try to succeed in bringing the "bhaavam" to the meaning of the song.[/tscii:a122901980]

Song: bhuvaneswari aruLpuri aadhari
Film: Thaiye neeye thunai
Singers : KJY, Chitra
Lyrics: Vaalee
Music : Raveendran

-What a song. I watched the movie just for this song. I need not mention that i was totally disappointed ..it was picturised on Pandian and Srividya(soninlaw -mother inlaw). This film had 'ungaL abimaana nakshathirangaL' which included amman films mandatory artistes KRVijaya, NaLini etc. The only redeeming factor were the songs.

Valee has done an excellent job with lyrics(difficult sandhams)


Mrs charumathi writes:

"Bhuvaneswari aruL puri" is beautifully composed by Raveendran and soulfully rendered by KJY and KSC.

It is based on raaga, Revathi and set to 'Eka ThaaLam'. It has the following aaro and avrokanam and swarasthanam:

S R1 M1 P N1 S
S N1 P M1 R1 S

Revathi can be said janyam of Mela's 2, 8 and 14.

In the song, beat starts before the humming.
Normally KSC makes hardly any pronunciation mistake, however KJY and KSC made pronunciation mistakes in this song. May be it is a deliberate attempt. Example:

Bhuvaneshwary - Buvaneswary (actual)
Shankari - Sankari (actual)
Sharanam/charanam - saranam (actual).

This song can be only sung by well known singer because of the following reasons:

1) Pallavi has brighas in the following line: 'soolini maadhavan sridharan sOdhariyE'

2) Low and High stayi (pitch) used in the song. For example, in saraNam 1,

Low - High
paavamO - vinaiyin
thaapamO - unathu
kOpamO - viLaintha
saapamO - karunai

3) the song is composed in ascending order and this adds the classical beauty to the song. For example:

S - vazhiyum punalil undhan thiruvadi nanaiyatum
M - nanaintha piraku undhan thiruvuLLam kaniyattum
P - kanintha kanivil undhan kadaikaNkaL oLiratum
N - iruNdu kidakkum engaL pozhuthukaL pularatum

The Music director used fantastic rhythm through out the song. For example:

1. tha ki ta thaam - tha ki ta
bha va mo - vinaiyin
2. tha ki ta - tha ki ta - tha ka - tha ka di mi - tha ka ja nu
vazhiyum - puna lil - undhan - thi ru va di na nai yatum

The composition touches high "Pa" at the end of charaNam 1 & 2. Raveendran has used mirudhangam, Tabla and veena really well in the song, specially he used 'urumi' to express the emotional devotional (bhakthi paravasam) feeling.

It is a duet 'devotional' song which is not common in music.
