where is "mudhal mariyadhai" in the list.

As far as tamil film industry people, even now they say that, M M re-recording is the best & cannot be reproduced in future.

Basically for good bgm, u need a good story & screenplay, which is not available in today's trend.

Another notable film is "Mullum Malarum" (another M M)

Btw should not this thread be in current topics? :?

Anyways that would be hard as each album lets say the good ones might be done to suit the film and of a different genre and you cant really compare and rank them. Somemore older movies (Pre IR) had some brilliant soundtracks usually semiclassical which were good. Quite hard for me :D

I think THIRUVILAYADAL &THILLANNA MOGANAMBAL sound tracks are ever green. Even today sound track of these movies are popular and aired most number of times.

Agninatchathiram should be rated 4 stars since this movie had fantastic songs and bgm. This movie audio got released one year prior to the movie's release and created lot of expectations. Once the movie got released the audio became a sensation. This movie and BGM is way modern for that time.

Yes i understand your problem. However the credit should go for SAR. This kind of chorus part (lalalalalaaalaaala) has impressed SAR a lot.
