my favorite from May maadham is "Minnale" song......great rendition from SPB, great prelude/interludes.......lyrics was also top notch......

"Paal mazhaikku kaathirukkum boomi illaya
oru pandigaiku kaathirukkum saami illaya
Vaarthai vara kaathirukkum kavignan illaya
naan kaathirundhaal kaadhal innum neelum illaya" 8-)

this song proves ARR was pretty strong in WCM right from his early days.....

[tscii:071fda2ecd]Track List

1. Markazhi Poove - Shoba
2. Madras Suthi - Shahul Hameed, Manorama
3. Aadi Paaru Mangaatha - Subha
4. Pazalattu Machanukku - Unnimenon, GV. Prakash
---------
5. En Mel Vizhundha - P. Jayachandran, Chitra
6. Minnalae - SP. Balasubramaniam


Excellent pick SQS. :D

1.A successive attempt to CC-Aasai in form MPoove(female solo), the prelude flings like a breeze and the song, orchestration, vocal rendition blew mainstream listeners inspite of those controversies been howled. ARR's theory of musical magnetism continued to vibe.
2. Grand narration of Singara Chennai. Check the witty kickstart from Manorama dur...driona hey hey.... :rotfl:
3. Situational Song "Raja eduthuvai Rahmanaiyum eduthu vai" :lol:
4. With lots of funky beats and excellent guitar usageÖ GVP, the kid rocked
----------
5 & 6 Now Rahman unearths & proves his mastery over melodies. He chastely differentiated it with a soft-duet (EVM) and the other one(Minnale) an effervescent solo-violin races astoundingly. SPB rendition & the lyricist vairamuthu needs a special mention here. Bliss! While the earlier tracks are funny, situational and for pleasure listening, the captivating MPoove & two eternal melodies will remain always in the disciples playlist. :D [/tscii:071fda2ecd]

Thanks Scale :)

Is that Veyyil MD was the kid voice in that song!? its a news for me :)

as a melody i prefer en mel vizhundha'better than minnale and maarghazi poove! .... what a song...! :P

minnale comes next,when the audio got released my brother used to listen this song again and again ....! SP.B sir voice is a big + to the song....!

maarghazi poove is a beautiful song expressing the beautiness of nature, whenever i listen this song i feel so relaxed .... :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

aadi paaru mangatha & paalakattu machanukku are good songs but got faded before the above said excellent songs! :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

madras-a suthi kaata poren was one of my fav song when the album got released because i was at Trichy at that time and Madras was like a dream place to me .. it will be exciting when manorama,vineeth sings about the places and nature of Madras but ingga vandhu kuppa kottuna peragu thaan theriudhu :oops:

actually all these 3 songs had singers who were famous in other ways.....

GVP - all we know is a MD now.....he also sang in "Chikku bukku rayile, kaathu kaathu dhinam kaathu(Uzhavan), Kuchi kuchi raakkamma" and many other songs of ARR...

Adi paaru mangaatha had pop star Sunitha rao sing for her first cinema song.......she later released her chartuster "paree" album......ARR proves he is too good in identifying talents.....look at KK.....HJ totally depends on him.... :D ....he was introduced by ARR only

Madrasa - song had the grand lady of tamil films- Manorama singing in it......it seems that Manorama's son and ARR were childhood frnds....they still call him Dileep it seems..... :shock:

I still remember this is the first Rahman album that I loved so much, it became a theme for me :D I think Palakadhu Machanaku is ahead of its time ahead of its time, I like the part where heavy bass guitar is played in between Chittukuruvi, Chittukuruvi. This is a fun filled song with tappa tappa tapping

As for Marghazhi Poove, it was a phenomenon back then. Everybody was attached to that songs. this song really proves ARR magical blending of classical & western instruments

Adi paaru mangatha was good (minus the lyrics)

May maadham is an excellent album with four outstanding numbers.

1. paalakkaattu machchaanukku -- You can never predict the tempo of the song and the guitar usage will be too good.

2. maargazhi poovE -- This was the most famous song when the movie came out. They often used to play this in TV/Radio

3. minnalE -- Amazing lyrics and superb rendition by SPB and the orchestration gelled very well with that.

4. en mEl vizhuntha -- My most favourite song in this album. Outstanding lyrics again. Close your eyes and listen to the song. Pure magic :)

P.S. This album was written off by vikatan in their review (of the movie). I am pretty sure they had to eat a little humble pie :)

1)Whenever I hear this song "Marghazhi Poove" my eyes lit up, my spirits get rejuvunated and I feel fresh..I dunno why.. :huh: For some strange reasons, this is my favorite song till date..I was studying 6th or 7th tat time and they wud telecast the song very often and the radios will air the song too often... I will jump with joy whenever I hear tis song..Even now nothing has changed..
Yes this song's starting is inspired from "Suprapadham"..But everyone including the composer wud have known tat..There must be some special reason behind it..
Tat chirping sound,followed by beautiful flute and jazz guitar and all those strange sounds.....Wow...Sweet memories..Tat song was ahead of times in terms of sound..Strangely Shoba never sang again... :confused2:
2)Paalakaatu Machaanuku is a catchy song very popular those days but faded soon..Beautiful guitars and beats..Innovative stuff..
3)En Mael...Wow wat a song..Excellent melody..One of the best tracks of Rahman..The movie got released in 1994..(May be later half of 1994)..Rahman exhibited maturity in his compositions..
4)Minnale..Another great song..Still one of my favourites when I play in my keyboard..
5)Even this movie's BGM's r superb.. People can hear from arrfansgroup or some other sites..Breath taking youthful BGMs..
Kind request from ARR fans like me is--> Rahman we need another May Madham or Duet..Can u give it????

Wibha
12th January 2007, 08:43 AM

22nd January 2007, 11:09 PM
ThirudA thirudA is my most favorite ARR album till date, easily. And its arguably one of his best ever. The tracks in the order of my preference :)

Putham pudhu boomi -- Best song from the Mano + ARR combo. Actually I like ALL the songs from this *rare* combo. Mano rocks especially in the lines sontha Agayam vENdum. jOdi nilavonru vENdum

Thee Thee - Just mindblowing music intertwined with some amazing lyrics. The interludes in this song are amazing

rAsAthi - Shahul hameed's magical voice. Very good chorus which doesnt hinder the flow of the song.

veerapANdi kOttayilE -- Fantastic percussions and a great dance number.

chandralEkA -- Amazing prelude. Electrifying and thats probably the highest pitch a female singer can take :)

kaNNum kaNNum -- A fun song with funny lyrics. very good interludes.

Thiruda..thiruda:

ARR's BEST work till date. The freshness, the arrogance of youth were all in the fore in this album. After Roja, and pudhiya mugam, I was also one of the people who thot this guy would fade away after giving two interesting albums, and when I first heard the album (It was in Binaka geethamalai, i first heard veera pANdi kOttayilE) I was bowled over.

After the first listen, chandralekha was my fav, and hated rAsathi. Thee thee ( i knew the jathi was a lift from his own work for tantex vests & briefs ad - Maris complex in trichy, screening thiruda..thiruda, unfortunately had the ad played just before the movie started, exposing arr :-) )was my second fav. Then came the Thiruda..thiruda chase theme...for a 11'th std kid (me), it was a very exciting score.

As I kept listening to it, the order became...

1. Puththam pudhu bhoomi: One of the most refreshingly original numbers by arr. One piece of work (apart from bombay theme) that shows he can do a good job in WC. Lyrics were good, and the picturization was good too.
2. Chandralekha: Anupama takes the song to a different plane by her singing. a very good sound engineering, along with great arrangement, makes this a fantastic number.
3. thee..thee: Purely for percussion, and the jathis. A more manly & clear voice (SM, may be)wud've done wonders to this song.
4. rAsAthi: The flow of the song is amazing.There's no single moment where you feel you need an interlude. A very innovative number.

the other two were decent numbers.

23rd January 2007, 11:04 AM
With Thiruda Thiruda i think mani started a new way of marketing trend....till the movie was released in oct 1993, the radio was repeatedly broadcasting only the veerapandi kottaiyile song if i remember correct and making it a super hit bfore the movie got released.... Once the movie released naturally the other better songs in the film over took veerapandi kottaiyile :)

inniku kettalum fresh ah irukkara sooooooooooooooperb songs thiruda thiruda la.....one can never believe the album came 14 years ago :D

23rd January 2007, 02:11 PM
this album's songs were really barrier breaking -

Chandralekha featured in MTV (that time MTV was only in US and used to telecast in US only)......dunno whether it was the first indian film song to do so.....

veera paandi song was the first tamil song which featured in "super hit muqabla" which was a very popular countdown show in North India that time.....

Raasathi had no instrumentation support.........which was answer to his critics that he can give songs without instrument support.....

Thee thee had a person called Jathi raja for jathis in the song......that Jathi raja was none other than ARR :lol:

in all TT was a real path breaker in 90's/......wish ARR gives such albums to send the copy cats packing out of TF.....

Raasathi had no instrumentation support.........which was answer to his critics that he can give songs without instrument support.....

There was a bass guitar that popped up occasionally, but it just provided a basic beat, not a melodic bass line.


Thee thee had a person called Jathi raja for jathis in the song......that Jathi raja was none other than ARR :lol:

I don't think so. It doesn't sound like ARR.

Chandralekha sounds so amazing its hard to believe that it is 14 years old! It still sounds extremely fresh.

Ahead of its time Dragun, nobody does it better :thumbsup:

As far as I remember, THee Thee was the least preferred song in TT when it was released because other songs Kannum Kanum, Veerapandi, Chandralekha outshined as time goes by Thee Thee became the best, Rahman's slow poison I think :thumbsup:

[tscii:e770b849c6]This is one of my all time favorite albums. Specially the song Rasathi, what an amazing song. I still donít know who sings that song. What an amazing and refreshing voice. Itís simply amazing.
Then the theme song. its just to die for.
I got this new pair of Koss headphones. and this album sounds great in them.

iv only mentioned 2 of my favorites in this album, but all the other songs are also just amazing. Chandraleka, Kannum Kannum and Veerapandi are just as good.

One of the best albums of all time.
the first time I listen to this album I thought it must be very new (After Alaipayuthe) and then realized later that this was older. this album sounds new even today

hats off to the great A. R. Rahman

Whenever i listen to Thiruda Thiruda it defly brings back my school memory!

1. Kannum Kannum

This was my fav when I was in school.We used to discuss about the lyrics and video of this song, in my classroom.Funny song, but very different one in that period

2.Chandralekha

IMO this is the first song with such a classy beats! Excellent pictuarisation is yet another plus of this song.

3. Veerapaandi

It is one of the best song of ARR. "...Vaal munayil oru suyawarama;managaikul...." after this line slowly the song will reach the fast phase..excellent!!

4. Putham Pudhu

When I was studying my college days myfriends sang this song and got first prize in an inter-college competion, simple but amazing song!

5. Thee Thee

It is my pick of the album! What a song!! What a picturaisation!! What a beautiful,rich female voice!!

I heared that Thiruda Thiruda is the first album to be released as musical CD, is that true? (I read it in Sujatha's 'Kattradhum Petradhum')

29th January 2007, 01:20 PM
Thiruda Thiruda.... One among the truly groundbreaking albums in TFM. ARR has scaled so many peaks in this one single album, that it is still tough to compare it with his other magnum opus albums. I should say both ARR and MR were too ambitious with this album and ARR pulled it off succesfully. This is what I will call "pushing the envelope"... :thumbsup:

Kannum kannum - Nice cool song... ARR has imbibed certain key elements of rock music in this song. An audacious interpretation of Rock in TFM!! :clap:

Chandralekha - This was my favourite when the album was released... and even now it is my favourite :2thumbsup: ARR once said that he suggested to do a song like Michael Jackson. But MR was apprehensive of wether it would fit into TFM or ppl will like it. The song that he came up with is this one. Sure it is modelled on MJ's pop, but where do we see the similarity?
And the programmed loops part... simply awesome... never b4 in TFM :2thumbsup: . And the maestro's wizardry comes to the fore once again when he uses a pucca indian instrument like veena in this western song... and to wat effect he uses it.... :notworthy:

veerapandi - Another awesome number... especially the western classical influenced interludes. if there is one thing that ARR has acheived in this album, it is to have mastered almost all kinds of instruments. And that includes vocals too which is evident in this song. Vocals compete against instruments in a dialogue sort of interlude. That is my fav portion of the song ... :thumbsup:

thee thee - Well, I hated this number in the beginning. I thot ARR did this just for the sake of adding one song. Ofcourse now you can almost predict my current opinion. This song is just too awesome to be appreciated in one hearing. I have been to several light music competitions in college culturals and in most of them, a group from Hindustan engineering college wins. In every single competition they perform this song and get accolades. Especially the flute interludes, a guy called naveen (coincidence? .. :huh: ) plays it perfectly. This song is so awesome that they win almost every competition. Last yr saarang they lost.. proly coz of being repetitive :oops:

There are other songs in this album... but enough said. No words can justify this truly wholesome album... long live the genius :notworthy:

sadly yes.... :cry: ....he was killed in a road accident......ARR had said "this is one of the most shocking/bad news that i've ever got".......

other songs of shahul hameed with ARR:

1. Maari mazhai (uzhavan)
2. Edhukku pondatti (Kizhakku cheemayile)
3. Usilambatti penkutti (Gentleman)

as far as i can remember........ :D

wonderful album

Putham pudhu boomi by Mano &KSC is a wonderful song with b'ful lyrics by VM

veerapandi kottayile by Mano,Unnimenon,KSC is a fantastic song .. as some one said " Vaalmunayil oru suyamvarama mangaikkul oru bayam varuma.. our damayanthi nanamma en nalarajan yaramma" it says the story of these guys behind a girl..

Chandralekha-- wow!! Anupama's dominating voice (if someone had heard her hindi song ye raat .. you'll appreciate it) with

thee thee - a new singer caroline had sung with a great effect ..

rasathee - folk tune and sahulhameed a perfect fit ..

Duet is by far the best of ARR, Ofcourse there are other masterpieces by ARR, but for me this is definitely slightly higher than rest of his stuff.

SPb is(was) already an established singer.if u notice ARR has only new comers most of the time..... rahman gives opportunity to everyone i guess. but watever it is experienced singers like SPB hariharan and chitra have atleast one song in most of his movies

Duet........ most lovable album from A.R.Rahman... Anjali Anjali song........ athu appadiye manasukkula pugunthu ithama varudi kodukara song... I was in my +1 / +2 when this movie got released. Eppo lam enakku sogam / depression varumo appolam i will hear this song...... and manasukku semma aaruthala irukkum :D........... so sweeeeeeeeet song

But I feel this was the film that got A.R.Rahman his first bad review in the media.

Kungumam said, pulichu pona paadalgalaiye koduthu makkalin kaadhugalai thavaraga edai pottu vittar Rahman ( I dont remember exactly..but ithu pola something)

Vikatan too didnt have much to tell about (I dont remember what they said)

Only Kalki said.....dont watch the movie, just buy the audio cassette and enjoy the film closing your eyes.

DUET

i have seen this movie 14 times - 3 times in theatres and 11 times on TV.......this is one of my favorite KB's movies.......genius of K.Balachander written all over... :D

Naan paadum sandham - my favorite song......wat a tune and amazing sax bits from Kadri Gopalnath.... 8-)

Mettupodu - amazing number.....great percussion with a very traditional look......the guitars used in interludes sound so indian..........Sax and Guitar sounded so Indian.....i think ARR mastered the art of making "western instruments sound Indian in this movie only"......

Anjali - SPB/Chithra - dont we miss this combo in ARR songs?? :cry: .....3 charanams and all have a different tempo.....innovation redefined......

Vennilavin - again yesudas is a rarity in ARR songs......amazing arrangements.......the violins speed and stop for yesudas's voice, and then speeds again.......so neat......ARR clearly showed that he is a WCM genius....

En Kadhale - is there anything left about it that hasnt been said before?? great music and supreme rendition by SPB

Sax theme - just listen to it......so cool......highest recording quality...
Kulicha kutthhalam and Kathhirikka were also good.....
"Kavithaikku porul" and "Sithhithinaal" poems.....
English song sung by Noell James (does anyone know this :wink: )

all in all K.Balachander gave a big playground for ARR to play.....and ARR played like a champion on it....if there is a shankarabaranam for carnatic music then there is a Duet for fusion music...

A little info 'bout the Duet cdwhich i PROUDLY own ( actually my dad bought it way back in 94)

The cd was released by pyramid, that time mostly all Rahman album was released by Pyramid, the quality is great & works fine until know.

It has a booklet with the motto 'adding a new dimension to music' with KB, ARR & VM photo inside with the usual credits of Rahmans team

Sax (western) - Raju
(classical) - Kadri Gopalnath

Flute & Rhythm - Naveen & Raja

Audio Engineers - H.Sridhar & Sivakumar

Keyboard - WHO ELSE :!: :wink:

funny it didn't mention drums Sivamani's name

At the end of the booklet it feature's A.R.Rahman "future" release under Pyramid ; May Matham, Puthiya Manargal, Vandi Cholai & BR's Thiruvizha :shock: maybe it has undergone changes in the name

The cd has 9 tracks minus the two poems (should've been included :evil: ) don't bother 'bout asking the other half of the songs in the cd :banghead:

one more thing it comes with a 35.00 price tag

I cant help remembering the day i bought Alaipayuthey audio. I was doing my first yr engineering at tiruchendur then. I went restless when i saw the promos in Dailythanthi. I was waiting for the day of its release. Madras talkies had been constantly giving promos on the paper without mentioning the date of audio release. Finally came the D day. I, along with some other ARR fans bunked the classes and went to the music shop and enquired if the cassettes had arrived ( I was not having a CD player then). But the shop keeper had said that it wud take atleast a day's time from the actual day of release. Engalukko Porumai illa... We caught a bus to Tuticorin which is the nearest city ti tiruchendur. Then we started our hunt for the cassette. It was just 10 am and the cassettes had not arrived. We all waited till 1 pm and when we finally got the cassette in our hands, we felt as if we had waited for 10 months and delivered a baby..

i have so much to say about this album. but i dont realy have time. so ill make it short.

This album is what showed me what music was. I knew nothing about music, NOTHING! This was the time my dad got me a Walkman. It was the best in the market at that time.

I wanted to listen to some music. One of my friends recommended Alaipayuthey. He said that it was out about a week back and the songs are really good.

So I went to the only record bar I know and asked for it. Normally in SL they would record me the album in a D60 TDK and give. But this guy gave me the original cassette for 130 SLR/=. I will never forget that.

I came home and played it. I fell in love with it the fist time I listened to it. Snegithene and Eveno Oruvan were my instant favorites. But then I started to love all the songs in the album.

Started reading the information given in the cassette over and over again. I knew about ARR only then. I started asking my friends about him and his music an step by step I fell in love with ARRs music so much that now all my friends ask me about ARR.

This album made me love music. It was a curse! It was a gift!

I even got the cassette.. not knowing a word of hindi .. not that I know too many now...

No super sound system then ... still everytime I am home .. Rangeela.. was played non-stop .... breakfast.. lunch .. dinner time included.... ARR was just mesmerizing..
Folks at home were already fans of him due to "Thiruda Thiruda" which went through the same rituals..

The more I listened ... Rangeela Re became my least favourite of the album .. "Kya Kare" was numero uno .... "Pyare Jaane Kaisa" was number 2 and "AiAiyo" took the third spot... I think ARR really knew how to use Udit.....

One helluva path breaking album... Hmmm good old days...

2nd March 2007, 07:12 AM
"And to this date I dont think anybody has dethroned him there..."

As is the case in TFM too. Harris and Yuvan are popular as are Himesh, Jatin-Lalit, Anu Malik, Pritam etc. Both, however, have not dethroned him, IMO. ARR's popularity in Tamil has probably waned, though. His albums are not inducing that craze anymore, at least to me. In every tamil album of late, two or three songs are very very good and the rest are only so so. I don't see this trend changing with Sivaji. May be ATM.

2nd March 2007, 08:57 AM
Yeah..ARR seems to be on the IR style...giving hit albums..experimental and refreshing one after another and once they have become established forces and more into international music their output is reduced to two or three hit songs per album or the odd hit album....hopefully ARR does not fall into the global trap and focus more on significant albums and less on certain ones like IR did even though their output and quality is as fresh as ever :exactly:

ARR on IR style??? no way......ARR is always unique and will stay so.......thats y we like him, if he had bbeen like IR he wud have bcome another deva only..........the sluggish tunes/rythms that u see now are a sign of maturity.....he wants to xperiment........how long can he churn muqablas and mustafas??? its like Sachin who has stopped playing like wat he was in 90's..... :D

Mangta hai kya - Shwetha shetty and ARRahman - it was probably the first ARR hindi song..... :D .......with catchy rythms and interesting interludes, this song was a immediate crowd puller.......the first interlude has a african touch supported by pretty good beats.....a feel good song which had sounds of Ramu as well........wish ARR works with Ramu again.....

4th March 2007, 01:34 PM
Rangeela..if i am not wrong this was ARR's first with Ram Gopal Varma and also first in hindi. Fantastic tunes with a deep longingness of romance displayed in the songs which probably reflected on the movie in which aamir only gets urmila at the end. Somehow the songs did not propel ARR to the heights he is now in HFM then . Before this film came ARR's pudhiya mugam which highlighted his penchant for mixing the situation's atmosphere within the tunes of his songs which really made him unique. :P Same bodes here as well. If RGV's picturisation was better the songs would really have been a blockbuster on screen.

dinesh2002

yup Hulkster... agreed with both ur post above... :D

but i think Rangeela's BLOCKBUSTER HIT status was satisfying... i mean...gosh...the amount of times the songs was beein played around...though i was young that time...i still can remember its effect... and also Kadhalan's effect... one of ARR's greatest time in his career.... :D

Hulkster
4th March 2007, 03:18 PM
Kadhalan is another one..although it was abit massy with muqaala and oorvasi which showed the usually focussed skill of him (rhythms) there is a melody that can compete with his best melodies so far. Ennavaley adi Ennavaley..lyrics..the orchestration and the soothing sound it produces when you singing..scintillating stuff. Was it piano that he used in ennavaley? I remember the way it rushes after the female lead singers says "hmmm"..:P

Yes Sanjeevi, singers in ARR songs explore the other side of them, the deep passion towards music of theirs r usually visible in ARR's songs... a good example check out Chinamyi in Tere Bina - Guru :)

Yes.. Kadhalan... and no doubt about Mukkala's excellent & neat arrangement of loops at the ending of the song. Those loops were used by almost all the Mds of today but can never create a Mukkala effect :P

ARR is well versed in how to make his instruments talk for the situation...and thats why the loops he used at the end of the song gave prabhu deva's dance a double magical effect...actually those dance steps were still minimal but the loops did the rest. The MD thats use the loops now use it as beats for accompanying purpose or just to give the song a "polished" effect with no studying of the situation. :D

Ramsu :cool:....Pettai Rap along with mukkabala showed why ARR is king of rhythms...he just tunes it to let you go all peppy...but i have interest in yerani gopala...it had some unique beats with some vibrant vocals which also showed ARR's interest in folk music :D

Kadhaan is indeed a superb album...
1) Oorvasi-Superb song,great music...Great dance movements..Listen to that bass guitar in one of those interludes...Great beats
2)Ennavale-Cool as a breeze..Electronic piano,flutes,violins and bells to a grandeur effect..Easily one of Rahman's best..I can still remember an article way back in 1994 tat stated tat Rahman used a western band to play tat opening flute piece(May not be true)..
3)Kollaiyile-No one talks about tis song...I love this song..Great melody..Short song but superb melody..
4)Kadhalikum pennin-Another superb song..Great catchy number..Great singing by SPB.Great mandolin effects loop used thro'out this song..
5)Muquabala-Wow..great number in alban's style..One of the greatest hits along Oorvasi and Ennavale..Powerful beats..As ARR fans we only hope tat ARR gives one song of this kind now.ARR himself admitted tat he did this song in a hurry and as a result the same loop was used by two composers(one being a western composer-the loop is a free one)...
6) Errani-Some how I don't like this song..

I was crazy about Kaadhalan songs when it was released.

My friend said, when he watched the movie in Chennai, college students flocked operators cabin to show the songs once more (Esp. Muqabla and Oorvasi). They even gave him money to repeat the songs. When he refused over a point of time, they blocked the lens with books and darkened the screen.

Till now I ve never heard such a crazy thing happened for any other movie songs.

this album made ARR's solid stand in Indian music for years to come. Valli said in a function that Mukkala Mukkabala is actually referring to "mukkal pazham" so that's how the song was born & it wasn't ARR fault. The line that I like is "santhosham yenbathey salikathe padalaa..." looks like Valli was right :wink:

songs like Kolaiyilay Thenai Vaithu & Katru Kuthirayilay were used as parodys by current Md's.

just like Mukkala, Urvasi Urvasi is a phenomenon........till now, tested Prabhu Deva's dancing skills with ARR keyboards. the late Shahul Hameed for Vadivelu :lol: great

Pettai rap. we've heard western + classical, but western+ghana :shock: Rahman got to the masses

Ennavalay, all time greatest love song, can't deny it.

My least fav. (doesn't mean I hate it) for this album is Gopala Gopala, it has really good instrument arrangements, interludes in between......awesome

Kadhalikum Pennin, my personal fav. song, the beats, loops. Udit was great rendering those jathi's & lyrics, with all these upbeat western music, our master never forgets to insert classical instruments in this song; melam & vennai. That's the reason oldies (like my dad) love him

Ghana, folk, rap, classical, dance, melody (whatever you wanna add) it's here in this album

I heard this is the first tamil album made in CD,,,,,,is it :?:

Kadhalan - the musical earthquake that hit TN in 1994 8-)

it was literally a earthquake of sorts with all ppl. just lapping up this album......the hype/craze that this album created was too much and it was Muqabla song which clearly put ARR in Indian map of music......i still remember the frenzy that muqabla carried along with it.......it just smashed the hell out of the conservatives.......

Interesting incidents:
a) A conservative family used to live in our opposite house with the uncle being a big ARR basher........he used to blast ARR whenever he used to see me knowing that it irked me...... :evil: ......i used to keep quiet just bcos he had a daughter of my age :noteeth: .....so, after Kadhalan's audio released, i used to play it non-stop which tempted the bro-sis in my opposite house to the hilt........after a week or so, kadhalan's songs were playing from their house :shock: ........later i came to know, that the aunty had bought the cassette for her kids and they used to hide the cassetter whenever uncle is at home and listen to it when he was away......thats the power of ARR's music..... :thumbsup: :musicsmile:

b) during my english exam - there was a question - "write a essay on something that u enjoyed the most in the recent times" and i wrote Kadhalan's audio...... :lol: .....but i was warned by teacher not to repeat it ....... :cry:

Link : http://www.raaga.com/channels/tamil/movie/T0000074.html

song listing in my order of preference:

1. Kadhalikkum pennin - u know y i liked this song..... :wink: .......it evoked some strange feelings in me.......the veena bit in second interlude just melts u......udit's try at tamil was so cute but not liked by all :oops: ........picturisation was also cute with shankar feauturing in it (did u know? :wink: )

2. Urvasi : great beats/lyrics.........the first interlude is a lesson for fusion music.......amazing fusion of rajasthani folk sounds with the western beats........the second interlude had "kandadhum kadhal." which was a innovation in tamil music which was monotonous with pallavi-charanam-pallavi format.......

3. Indiraio aval sundariyo (ennavale tune) - this song just melts me any time........ :cry: ......wat chorus singing and arrangement of slow beats with female vocals....... :shock: .......manam mundiyadho, vizhi mundhiyadho, karam mundiyahdho.....kaviarasar oru kadhal-raisgar allavo..... :wink: ....the unnikrishnan of ennavale which was more famous - though bashed by subbudus and other vaitherichal cases-was touted as the best carnatic song in many years.....it started the trend of carnatic singers joining film music...

4. Muqabla - no need for me to describe anything abt this song except that we all were breathless to see the picturisation..... :D

5. Pettai rap - another first in tamil music......first RAP song..........i laugh when some ppl. say this trend started by u1...... :lol: ......it was one hell-of a song........it just had ppl. in frenzy......stop it - eva avaa - was the most famous dialogue in the schools and colleges those days.... :lol:

Katru kuthirayil, kollaiyile were awesome bit songs......errani kurrathani never gets listen time amngst such gigantic hits...... :oops:

this is wat we call a earth shattering effort - :bluejump: .........as long as my nose breathes, my brain works, my heart beats, and my eyes can see, these songs and memoried associated will stay with me........i think its same for many ARR fans of my age group.....

During the release of Kaadhalan, i was too small. I had no idea who Rahman, Prabhudeva were that time. But i still remember being very adamant with my dad asking him to buy the cassette without having a single knowledge about the creator of the album. I was a crazy fan of Urvashi and Pettai rap then. I had no idea what the movie itself was all about then but saw the movie umpteen no. of times just for the songs. Only when i saw the movie about 4 or 5 years back i understood the movie. :D

Following are NOT my words about Kadhalan. Some years back I accidentally stumbled upon dhwanii.com/rahmania, which had ARR album reviews from 1992 to 2002. What I liked about the reviews is that all reviews were in the perspective of a common man and not a critic. I immediately downloaded all those pages to add to my ARR collection. I must say I was lucky as this site is no more online.

"Kadhalan.... well! An absolutely contrasting opening for the songs, for me. I had an agreement with my Cassette shop owner that as soon as the cassette reaches his shop he shall call me and I should buy the first cassette. I was boarding a bus to go my native village. Suddenly a conductor from the next bus ran towards my bus conductor hands him a cassette and told " Maplai! Pudhu paatuya. Amarkalama irukkuthu". The driver loaded the cassette and "Urvasi" started. I was furious; my vendor has cheated me! The not-much heard Dilruba, UK, PJ cooled me. When I reached my destination, already "Muqqabla" had been played thrice (passenger request!). Late night I reached back Trichy, straightaway went to the vendor and told "nalla ematheetinga thalaiva! Kadhalan paatu vandhiruchu". He took me to the rear side of the shop (where he resides). His 5-year-old son was dancing to "Muqqabla". The man turned around and said "Nethu rathirleyiruthu ithey paatuthan oodikittu irukku. Eppathan puriyuthu en neenga evvalvu aarvama keteengannu" (Since yesterday night this has been going on. Only now do I understand that why you were so eagerly expecting it!)"

Kadhalan was album which put the tag of "King of commerical Cinema" on ARR . Even though personally I think its inferior to the incomparable Thiruda Thiruda , It was a Shankar's movie.. and he knew what he wanted and what ARR could deliver. And boy , deliver he did.. he made the entire TN dance..literally dance....
what ARR didnt expect was that the silently growing audience in the north (ever since they heard "chiku buku") professed their liking for Rehman out in the open. Countless "pop-icons" in the making started beliting out "Muqabla" as if it grew in the backyard.....

This album simply put rehman all over the map of india and when Rangeela stuck them, India wasnt suprised at the output.. People were only too happy to grab it with gleaming smiles..

my picks..
Ennavale , kadhalikum..Orrvasi ... forget it.. I think the like the entire album

One of my most favourite albums of ARR. i liked all his scores for Village subjects. Poraale is the best and it is one of ARR's favourites too which he has openly said in some interviews. He has reused this tune for an hindi song too. Then, Kaadu potta kaadu is my next favourite in this album. He has made Bharathiraja sing this one.

16th March 2007, 01:33 AM
I guess this is the song that struck me first. It was a techno rustic song with a totally unmatching(BR- that's the beauty), but authentic voice to start the movie, which is ultimately about the pains a girl child undergoes in her life.

I was having a big hope in this album since the last one ARR did for BR was Kizhakku Seemaiyile and lesser known Andimandharai. In between BR jumped to VS for pasimpon and I was very angry with BR. I was not sure how the songs would turn out to be but with "Then merku" song it all seemed to be a ultra mordern album...
But wait that is ARR, if I dislike an albul at first I had come to know by then that I will love that for ever till my death. It is no different for Karuthamma also.

This film has one of the ARR top 10 best Tunes, that is "Porale". The BGM for this film was also mind blowing and you need to see it to feel it. BR had made a real authentic story with more emphasis to the message than to any comercial aspect of the film. Karuthamma is one of the land mark film for Tamil movies and also for ARR's music.

I'm takin a break from Sivaji ( for today) and going down memory lane

Thenmerku Paruva Katru - Rahmanji has given few couple of rain songs but at my list this is the best of them all. The beats are still fresh & electronically rainy like & not to forget the drizzle part . Unni has changed his voice to give a chill in the song. Chill out song. Can't say this is a folk song eventhough the lyrics do.

Poralay - the BGM for this song is definitely awesome, with it's orchestra, flute & it's chorus that we never get bored of. The lyrics is like a dialogue that really blends well into Rahmanji's tune. I like the interludes with all the classical instruments used (as far as I know of); flute, tabla, vennai...etc. for whom that don't know, Chanda Suraj (vande Mataram) tune is from this song :wink:

Kadhu Podha Kadhu - wow :shock: he made BR sing & it turned out pretty well, even BR's voice is folky :D . The lyrics is excellent :thumbsup: , resembles the village. M'sia Vasudevan has done his part well. the interludes/ bgm is really haunting. My second pick of the album.

Pachai Kili - what can I say 'bout this song, it's kinda funny listening to animal sounds from start to finish, a different kind & rare song in ARR's list. There won't ever will be a song this in his keyboard (I think :roll: ), but I like (the late) Shahul's part in the song.

Poralay (solo) - the bgm is clearly from Uyire uyire (Bobay). Actually this one came first. Rahman let Swarnalatha do the talking in this one. Except for the BGM, only the flute is used in the interludes.

In the whole album, Rahmanji really gave a top priority to the lyrics & it was nicely blended into the tunes & instruments.

Muthu - first super league album of Rahman 8-)

When Muthu audio was about to be released, we were so excited to see what will be the outcome........cos on one side, we had Rajinkanth and his fans, who have a great ear for conventional songs/ formula songs......and on the other side, we have ARRahman who was hell bent of breaking norms and formulas.......so to be frank we were really scared about the outcome........ :D .....but wat came out was Muthu and rest is history.....

Interesting incidents :

1. When i went to devi paradise for watching this movie, there were a group of college fans taking "arrathhi" for rajini poster........me, a small boy, went directly to them and told - appadiye ARRahmanukkum oru arrathhi yedungalaen.......2-3 guys in the group were like :evil: , move out before we break ur neck..... :shaking: ....then one guy told, dei machaan chinna payyan aasa paduraan, yaen keduppane and they gave the arrathhi plate to me and i took arrathhi for ARR's photo there :rotfl: .....it was one of the best moments of my life.....

2. when the audio released, i was on a school picnic to mahabalipuram............i had 100 rs with me for the entire 1 day trip........me and my frnds had "kothhu barotta" from the nearby shop and i paid for all those idiots, which left me with 40rs........then i saw muthu released poster in the cassette shop , but found out the cassette was 45rs........i couldnt buy the cassette and i was so upset that i couldnt buy it that day........i didnt talk to that group of frnds for the entire return journey.... :rotfl: .........(didnt even have the patience to ask for 5 rs loan from someone :oops: )

Listen it here - http://www.raaga.com/channels/tamil/movie/T0000106.html

songs listing in my order of preference:

Kuluvalile: wats Udit narayan doing in a rajini movie song??? that was my initial reaction.......but didnt his voice fit thalaivar??? :D wow.....i thot he was a natural rajini playbacker 8-) ........his voice was the biggest asset in the song.......just listen to the pallavi that comes after 1st charanam - "love love yea yea aaee"....amazing..... sorry guys, we havent seen a talent of this caliber since SPB and yesudas :oops: ......and the malayalam-pop fusion just elevates this song.....one of the classiest Rajini duets (except for katchi, thittam - political lyrics :banghead:)

Oruvan Oruvan: it mite not be the best rajini intro song ever but the most grand of starts.....this prelude even beats "rakkamma kayya thattu" prelude hands down....the arrangement was so majestic that it left ppl.'s mouths open....... :D ...........then the song somewhat slows down in pace and rythm but the feel of a rajini song with momentum was still there/......

Kokku saiva kokku: a very underrated song which was a sound engineering marvel with all hen,peacock,parrots,sparrows sounds in it :lol: ........the base beats accompanied with jaalra "cling" came in countless songs thereafter........a trend setter 8-)

Thillana : YO! this is called "rythm" dude.......the song had amazing rythm pattern, zig zagging ur senses on a roller coaster ride.......the jungle beats were so catchy and it just stays throughout the song.......it was later copied exactly in bollywood called "dewaana deewana" wth ajay devgan....... :lol:

Muthu was a very crucial album for ARR in the sense, a normal-talented, weak hearted youngster wud have been crushed under the mass of rajini and his fans.....but heres ARR, the man whose music is gonna stay for 1000 yrs, took it effortlessly and gave a real unique Rajini album and thaliavar also okaying such a different sound to his album...... :clap:

still many rajini fans dont like muthu as they feel it was pretty westernised and Rahmanish than thalaivar;s album :oops: .....i think ARR failed to satisfy rajini fans here but more than made it up in padayappa

but he more than satisfied this Japanese Rajinikanth fan: :D

Awesome pick! My favorite Rajini - ARR album... :clap:

* I like the titles themselves, the BGM played when they show all those characters in cartoon-paintings!

* Best intro song ever for Rajini!

* My favorite is Kokku Saiva Kokku... There'll be an interlude that completely mesmerizes me!

* Kuluvalile, very different for Rajini and soooo classy in those beats!

* Vidukathayae, absolute pathos song that blended sooo well with the script, and brought tears to the audience as the scene moved!

* Thillana Thillana, song of the masses at that time... Superhit!

* Overall, it was puzzling for a lot of ppl when ARR was signed for the movie, but then he showed his amazing style of music to convert what would have been a normal masala-family kinda village story into a classy one with an absolute western flavor! The BGM for all the stunt sequences were amazing! It is still soooooooo fresh in my mind, how many times me and my friends used to listen to this album every day!

bay, FYI , me too a thalaivar fan........its just that his fans (many not all :lol: ) couldnt understand his penchant for unique sounds..... :oops:

btw, did u read that IMDB comment??? she credits music as the main reason for liking the movie.... :clap:

Muthu - first super league album of Rahman 8-)

When Muthu audio was about to be released, we were so excited to see what will be the outcome........cos on one side, we had Rajinkanth and his fans, who have a great ear for conventional songs/ formula songs......and on the other side, we have ARRahman who was hell bent of breaking norms and formulas.......so to be frank we were really scared about the outcome........ :D .....but wat came out was Muthu and rest is history.....

Interesting incidents :

1. When i went to devi paradise for watching this movie, there were a group of college fans taking "arrathhi" for rajini poster........me, a small boy, went directly to them and told - appadiye ARRahmanukkum oru arrathhi yedungalaen.......2-3 guys in the group were like :evil: , move out before we break ur neck..... :shaking: ....then one guy told, dei machaan chinna payyan aasa paduraan, yaen keduppane and they gave the arrathhi plate to me and i took arrathhi for ARR's photo there :rotfl: .....it was one of the best moments of my life.....

2. when the audio released, i was on a school picnic to mahabalipuram............i had 100 rs with me for the entire 1 day trip........me and my frnds had "kothhu barotta" from the nearby shop and i paid for all those idiots, which left me with 40rs........then i saw muthu released poster in the cassette shop , but found out the cassette was 45rs........i couldnt buy the cassette and i was so upset that i couldnt buy it that day........i didnt talk to that group of frnds for the entire return journey.... :rotfl: .........(didnt even have the patience to ask for 5 rs loan from someone :oops: )

Listen it here - http://www.raaga.com/channels/tamil/movie/T0000106.html

songs listing in my order of preference:

Kuluvalile: wats Udit narayan doing in a rajini movie song??? that was my initial reaction.......but didnt his voice fit thalaivar??? :D wow.....i thot he was a natural rajini playbacker 8-) ........his voice was the biggest asset in the song.......just listen to the pallavi that comes after 1st charanam - "love love yea yea aaee"....amazing..... sorry guys, we havent seen a talent of this caliber since SPB and yesudas :oops: ......and the malayalam-pop fusion just elevates this song.....one of the classiest Rajini duets (except for katchi, thittam - political lyrics :banghead:)

Oruvan Oruvan: it mite not be the best rajini intro song ever but the most grand of starts.....this prelude even beats "rakkamma kayya thattu" prelude hands down....the arrangement was so majestic that it left ppl.'s mouths open....... :D ...........then the song somewhat slows down in pace and rythm but the feel of a rajini song with momentum was still there/......

Kokku saiva kokku: a very underrated song which was a sound engineering marvel with all hen,peacock,parrots,sparrows sounds in it :lol: ........the base beats accompanied with jaalra "cling" came in countless songs thereafter........a trend setter 8-)

Thillana : YO! this is called "rythm" dude.......the song had amazing rythm pattern, zig zagging ur senses on a roller coaster ride.......the jungle beats were so catchy and it just stays throughout the song.......it was later copied exactly in bollywood called "dewaana deewana" wth ajay devgan....... :lol:

Muthu was a very crucial album for ARR in the sense, a normal-talented, weak hearted youngster wud have been crushed under the mass of rajini and his fans.....but heres ARR, the man whose music is gonna stay for 1000 yrs, took it effortlessly and gave a real unique Rajini album and thaliavar also okaying such a different sound to his album...... :clap:

still many rajini fans dont like muthu as they feel it was pretty westernised and Rahmanish than thalaivar;s album :oops: .....i think ARR failed to satisfy rajini fans here but more than made it up in padayappa

but he more than satisfied this Japanese Rajinikanth fan: :D

Gr8 post,maddy....

I was studying 9th std at Nagercoil when the audio got released. I had booked my cassette 3 days b4 the release date. I remember going to the same shop umpteen times to check whether the cassettes had come. finally i got my copy at 5 in the evening.. Still Muthu is one of my fav Rajni albums..

Superb album and great pick, RK :P

Still remember watching the movie, FDNS at trichy, ramba. I dont have to say the reception Rajini got when his name showed up on the title. The surprising factor was ARR getting a huge applause when isai - isaippuyal A.R. Rahman flashed on the screen and the opening song oruvan oruvan is very loud but I could hardly hear anything. People were dancing and doing all kinds of things and once the song ended shouts of once more were heard from almost everyone. An excellent opening song :thumbsup:

Other favorite songs in the order of my preference:

1. vidukathayA -- Very emotional song and hits your heart. Superb acting by thalaivar as well :P

2. kokku saiva kokku -- Innovation at its best. The sounds used in this songs are so awesome that you can't say which instruments he used. Very catchy tune as well.

3. thillAna thillAna -- no need to say more. Was a runaway hit :P but I was not very impressed with the picturization :(

4. kuluvaalilE -- Horrible diction and again superb beats :thumbsup:

The BGM is also worth mentioning here, though not as good as padayappa, it fitted the movie really well 8-)

One of the best ARR albums... His 2nd movie I think (after ROJA)! All songs are top notch... It's after GENTLEMAN that became a huge BO success, that ppl started to realize that a new star is born and it was not just luck (that ROJA album became a sensation), but real talent that's there to stay and rule... And then ARR became a real-sensation and started revolutionizing Tamil movie music... That kinda revolution has not happened after that yet I think!

en veetil thotathil is also very gud :oops: ella paatu nalla irrukum :D

Otakatha Kattiko is my favorite! Especially the starting tunes that will lead to some awesome beats!

Like KB said, I kinda liked all the songs... The first time when Chikku Bukku Rayilae was shown in Oliyum Oliyum, I was hearing comments like, "Ithu enna thamizh paataaa" and all that! :lol:

Gentleman album brings me so many memories. I think i was just 3 when the album released. I remember I first heard en veetu thotathil at a marriage. I really loved the song when i first heard it. Amazing album. My cousin who was 16 or 17 then was recording gentleman songs when i went to his house. While recording cassettes, as u all know, the songs play really fast sounding like chipmunks. I was so frustrated i started screaming so he would play the songs normally. When I was young, I always won using my weapon of mass destruction -- screaming and crying -- and so he stopped the recording and played the songs normally. :lol: A very nice album :D

Dragun
10th April 2007, 01:34 AM
I remember I visited India when the Gentleman songs were all the rage. I never heard a hip number in Tamil like Chikku Buku Raile until then. The other songs were terrific as well. Shahul Hameed singing Usilambatti, the amazing thavil beats in Ottagatha Kattiko, the beautiful violin piece in Paarkathey, the beautiful melody of En Veetu Thottathil. All wonderful.

LOL Thineshan, you've brought back my own memories of high speed dubbing!

This album is one of the best of combo arr-shankar, from arr, all kind of music is present!!!

En veetu thottathil, beautiful melody...simple beats...nice tune...overall amazing lyrics...good voices, sujatha, she's a new comer at this time suprises me, nothing to say about genius spb :notworthy: :D everything is great in this song 8-) :) :D :thumbsup:

Chikku bukku very stylish song, i have liked even today the second interlude, mix of western and nathaswaram beautiful done by arr, I imagine reactions of people of this time when they listen to this song!!. It's my pick of this album. This one distinguish arr-shankar combo from others: peppy beats, new technologie... :thumbsup: :redjump:

Ottakathai kattiko my second favorite, a good starting, i never liked before this song janaki but after this song my opinion changed, :oops: traditionl instrument, it has flavor of illayaraja :roll: , at first listenning, i thought it's from ilayaraja...fanny lyrics :P

Usalam petti,folk song, few instruments compared to previous tracks, my favorite singer swarnalatha simply rocked in this song!!! but the picturation spoiled this song, it's o the worst picturasation made by Shankar!! :x ...and a new comer shakul hameed a different voice make alive this song, ...it's very sad that he was died :( :cry2: :cry:

These 4 songs attract me at first listening but the other one grow me after few listennings because it is quite different from other tamil songs!!!!

Melody, peppy number, a traditional track, a jazz number,a folk number... This is an entire album!!!... this is what needs shankar to sucess his first movie!!! 8-) :roll: :D

Instruments that replaced singers

Yen Vedhu Thodhatil - flute

Odhagatha Kadhiko - sounded like sax / harmony box

Ussalampedhi - keyboard

Chikkubukku Railay - keyboard

Pakathey - keyboard

Kadhal Desam -> one of the biggest achievements of ARR - this movie ran for 125 days at DeviParadise :shock: :rotfl: .....jokes aside, this was the pinnacle of Kadhir-ARR combo......bash of youth...... :cool: .........mustafa,hello doctor,kalluri saalai,ennai kaanavillai, oh vennilla, thendrale.......show me a more youthful college-centric album with a wider variety than this and i quit......:clap:

Interesting incidents : none as i was in a crucial year in my academic career......couldnt even watch the movie in theater... :cry: ....but after seeing it on TV, i dont regret that at all...... :rotfl: ......yes, me and my frnd copied vineeth's hair style and mantained that for 6 months :oops:

Listen it here ->
http://www.musicindiaonline.com/music/tamil/s/movie_name.4707/

Songs in order of my preference

Oh vennilla - foreplay of music and lyrics....however lyrics stays on top :oops: (sorry kids).......the pain of a heart at the intersection of love and frndship was beautifully bought out by Valee.......this is my most fav "love" song of ARR.......the song runs at its own pace and the mild violins in the interludes melts.........paragraph tunes are very beautiful and the interest in the song just doesent go off throughout the song......truly a musical orgasm from ARR and Valee..... :clap:

ennai kanavillaye - who says melodies are meant to have no beats......i think this is one of the best melodies of TFM....again the lyrics are of top notch and rendition - :omg: SPB and OS.Arun just sizzle in this......ARR's penchant for new voices shows up here as well with OS.Arun's intro........also, picturised in the most beautiful city in the world - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ6fM6gpVok :cool:

kalluri saalai - this song surprised even ARR fans when it came out first.....starts with a WCM feel, moves to a rock-n-roll feel, later travels to rap mode, chugs into a bhajan-song mode and finally finishes with a excellent guitar riff......this song had the youth in a roll those days........picturisation was also very good for this song.......a truly different yet remarkable song......ARR at innovative best.....

mustafa - well, this song is another muqabla,chayya chayya - means it was a hit in the entire country not just TN.....:cool:......starts with a very unique guitar piece(unique for a tamil song atleast), then carries a excellent rythm throughout the song.......ARR again sings in this song......cant remember a movie other than this where ARR has sung 3 songs :shock: ........lyrics again, touching the innermost channels of the heart........:clap:

hello doctor - this song was my most fav when the album released initially.......this song was a bit ahead of its time, in terms of its feel........U1 gave a similar song in Kadhal Kondein - 18 vayadhil........so, it was easily 6-7 years ahead of its time..........good beats and the second interlude where ARR's keyboard just plays magic..........

Thendrale - a ghazal in tamil film......yes thats wat this song is.....some people call it painfully slow.......dont believe them, listen to it on ur IPOD just before u sleep......it will be like a "thaalattu"......very beautiful lyrics again........i think this album was a culmination of ARR's music and valee's lyrics....:clap: .........malarin kaadhal panikku theriyum, yaen manadhin kaadhal theriyuma......:cool: .....song was criticised a lot but mano has this song in his favorites list.....

all in all, a great album extracted from a great musician by a under-rated director.....:clap: .....it was the explosion of youth, association of music and lyrics, manifestation of fusion music, and dedication of ARR to his fans.....:clap:

After the song got over, he said one interesting thing about the song praising Rahman's genuisness in tat song..

He said tat the instrument tat comes in the song(1.13 minute) is not flute but Rahman himself whistled tat tune(he whistles tat sound).. I was totally surprised...I have never thought it to be a human made sound...Now I am hearing tat song again and again...

Then he praised Rahman lot and prayed tat Rahman shud get an Oscar award for those 3 songs and get an award scoring for a Hollywood movie...

Friends...Please hear tat song again in tat 1.13 minute...

1)Acham Acham illai-->Superb song..Has a good patriotic element in it, even today in days of national importance, our TV channels beam this song.

2)Nila Kaigiradhu-->Both the variations are good...It was Harini's first song and the rest is history..Hariharan's version is my pick, superb semi classical melody..Beautiful guitars and flute with light percussions.
Even today in all the music talent hunt programs, kids as well as seniors sing this song to show case their prowess(Is it Kaapi raag??)

3)Thoda Thoda--> Heavenly melody..One of the favourites of the legendary SPB. Nowadays more people sing this song on stage. Once SPB said in Vijay TV,"Ennaku Rahman mela romba kovam,enna intha madhiri arumayana melodykala avar ippo kodukka mattengiraru"....This appreciation is enough for this song..

4)Oda Kaara-->Highly under rated song..But a huge hit..Simple and effective percussions..Good bass guitar..Excellent singing..Note the piano entry when the hero enquires about his girl-" Matha katha ennakethuku yen kuruvi eppadi irrukku"....Wow..Rahman u rock...

Most or all ARR fans will want an another Indira..This is one of my favorite albums..

Yes, Vaanan. Especially the knowledge that ARR possesses on Classical music is amazing. In spite of being a Muslim,he often gives amazing classical numbers. Thats the genius of ARR..

and also, being a south indian - his command over north indian folk and hindustani types is amazing....anarkali is a amazing fusion involving hindustani aalaps.... :D

Nowday MD's use very less of fusion like our master do, KKS is a very good example of this. Eventhough it was underated when it was released, it will be remembered years to come

One of my most favorite ARR albums.

Theekkuruviyaai is my favorite. Heavenly composition especially the last few seconds when harini takes the highest pitch. Wow :clap:

ennuyir thOzhiyE is my second favorite. Superb lyrics coupled with excellent orchestration.

anaarkaLi is a great song as well. anaaaaarkaLi anarakaLi, that was something :)

I must tell about the first interlued for En uyir thozhi (probabaly the best of top 10 ARR composition)

The piano plays, then comes Chinmayee's humming, again the piano plays and in due course the humming and piano synchonizes so well that its the perfect fusion...and suddently with a big stoke Chinmayee takes off with full power as "otrai jadaiyil unnai" line..
Guys, listen to this piece, its a short piece only but if you can understand music this one interlued is enough to read who ARR is entirely...GENIUS

Kangalal Kaidhu Sei - Tears of blood

yes, tears trickle down my cheeks, the red ones - when i listen to this album and its songs..........fate was cruel on Allah-Rakha-Rahman and his fans, who could sell 200 million copies in 10 yrs but could not sell a few thousand copies for this mastrerpiece work.......thank god that ARR didnt have a weak heart cos it wud have blown into pieces with the verdict that people gave to this timeless piece of art...i mourn it as a personal tragedy whenever i listen to it........"kanneer thuligal dhaane, kalaigalin vegumaanam" - Nammavar......how true.... :D

En uyir thozhiae - i'm really sad that i have use the word "magical" for much lesser things before - cos this song deserves it the most........the beautiful rush of piano in the starting, the interludes, and the way charanams start.....and the charanam - cherry on the cake - simply magical

Anarkali - the hindustaani aalap elevates the song to a different level...........karthik's rendition is perfect...........and the fusion of aalap -chinese sounds - again a speciality from ARR......lyrics - pathetic - "ulagathile miga periya poovum neeyadi" - gawddddd

Theekuruvil - very unique and different ARR composition..........pretty fast and peppy yet melodious.....ARR is the only composer who can have reggae bits and carnatic aalap in one song, iguess :lol: .........guys who havent seen the picturisation of this song - pls dont attempt to :banghead:

As an album KKS was not one of ARR's best, but two songs and one very good song in "Anarkali" is more than paisa vasool.

If one day I meet ARR, I will surely ask how did he conceive that part in the "en uyir thozhi" song. Infact the entire song.

I do not believe BR could have inspired ARR to do that as the output in the film is even less than Zero.

One more thing, people close to ARR must ask him to use these type of immortal classics often in his live programmes. Or else, golden pieces like these will die silently.

a perfect 10/10 from ARR but was wasted in a drab movie..........picturisation really su**ed.....sorry BR, this is ur worst.........u killed a beautiful album..... :evil: ........KKS - a knot in the heart of ARR fans which pains whenever u listen to the above 5 songs :cry:
