    Sanskrit Classical Compositions in Movies

    There are several Sanskrit compositions in movies, mostly Telugu and MalayaLam, that I liked. I sing a few of them.
    I thought of posting those in Hindi songs thread. I was not sure how they would be received. That is why this new thread.
    " I think there is a world market for may be five computers". IBM Chairman Thomas Watson in 1943.

    RD: I have a pretty good guess about the version you have in mind and the movie!

    Good one Raj! This one has Balamuralikrishna, Yesudas and Susheela singing the Swaathi Thirunal krithi... GAANAM was a great movie with a radical social theme. The star cast included Lakshmi (Tamil), Ambareesh (Kannada), Poornima (Mallu/Tamil), and the movie was directed by engineer turned poet/musician/story writer/artist and movie maker Sreekumaran Thampi (Mallu). It had several of the traditional classical compositions as well as some pleasing raaga-based melodies composed by Dakshinamoorthy Swamy. I may be tempted to post "yaaramitaa..." here if you don't post it soon!

    One of my favorites.. just because of the rendition. BMK sir Note that he doesn't sound like a carnatic singer at all in this song. I think it all comes so naturally for him.

    RD: I forgot about the movie plot completely (I think I watched only half the movie). Can you brief us on the background to this song..

    Thank you Sudarshan. PBS sounds so mellifluous. Haven't heard the song or seen the movie before!
