Muralidharan, good posts!
On nalinakanthi, I think ye housla is not in it. Also 'manam virumbuthe' - except for the starting similarity with manavyalakim. There's more nalinakanthi in the start of this song, don't you think:
Also here's a beautiful alapana by Nithyashree from the same movie

I have seen great singers moving the listeners to tears by their soulful singing ! But here, this child Anushya , something different ! She, the singer herself, breaks into tears, towards the end. Apparently, moved by the loaded lyrics and the meaning of the folk song !.
The audience is speechless , overwhelmed, tears welling, the judges are stunned !!
Just for reference, The original song from "Thendral" . Music by Vidyasagar .

Raga : Mohanam
Raga : Mohanam
Yesterday night , (26th Jan 2015) I was watching movie "Aranmanai" in Sun TV. In that , this song, "Sonnadhu Sonnadhu needhane"
sung by Harini in Mohanam ( I think so !)was quite nice. Music by Bharathwaj.
Perhaps, This song from film Ayya , by Sadhana Sargam , is a bit comparable, somewhere, in a few places, in to that Aranmanai song. Raga could be the reason , may be the similarity of voice, music director and or style of singing too !

"Of all human powers operating on the affairs of mankind, none is greater than that of competition." - Henry Clay .
I felt this when I was watching the show in Vijay TV Super Singer Junior 4 wild card competition. Perhaps, this challenge rounds are a bit too much for their tender age ! Parental pressure, peer level comparison and stuff like that !
All the 8 contestants were battling it out , heart out ! The out come , during the rounds, was some beguiling songs coming to the fore !
Listened to this captivating, sonorous song on 29th Jan 2015 "Vaidehi Raman Kai Serum.." Film Pagal Nilavvu . What a a beautiful & delightful Composition by the great Ilayaraja.!
It is a ragamalaika. Kalyani, Hindolam Mohanam ...
No matter what these children has been through, they are still here, fighting! .
They might have been challenged ,hurt , betrayed , beaten and discouraged , but nothing has defeated them.

Raga : Pantuvarali
Considered "A meditative raga, Pantuvarali brings forth a wide gamut of emotions when elaborated, and is one of the favourite ragas of rasikas and performers alike. A hint of pathos, intense yearning, a pleading quality — these are the signature emotions that Pantuvarali would convey". - Charulatha Mani .
A remarkable captivating piece in this raga is "Om Siva Om" from "Naan Kadavul" . Isai by Isaignani. Very powerful song. Singer Vijay Prakash.
2. There are very engaging pieces in this raga : Some samples here :
"In the Nimisham" – Film " Hello" By Deva .
3. One Super hit by ARR in Hindi Film 'Hai Rama"- Rangeela.
(Perhaps, You can see some succulent semblance in the tunes between items 2 and 3 )

Raaga : Brindavani Sarang
A Pleasing and Emotional Raga with a light and tranquilizing effect, this Brindavani .
Ancient Nada yoga Says Playing, performing and even listening to appropriate ragas can work as a medicine. In that sense of therapeutic effects, RAGA CHIKITSA says Brindavan Saranga is cure for Digestive problems. So here is a few numbers in that raga. Enjoy !
Starting with Carnatic :
The signature song for this raga is Sri Ranga Puravihara. Listen to the divine voice of MSS and
Also have the dharshan of Ranganathar of Srirangam Temple !
From Light music side,
This malayalam song is really nice : Mazhayil Ratri Mazhayil - Manjari - Romantic song
Hindustani : Jugalbandi in Brindavan Saranga by Pravin Godkhindi (Flute)- Jayateerth Mevundi (Vocal) . It is just class apart.
Coming to Tamil film songs side , Snegithiye - 'Radhai Manathil' Song. Lovely Dance sequence .
Vidyasagar Music. Singers : Chithra, Sujatha, Sangeetha and Shajith

You may be aware Dwaja means flag. Vanthi means Praise . So we may say Dwijavanti Raga for patriotism. Is not ' Raghupati raghav rajaram’ on everybody's lips?
In Dwajawanti “Manappennin Sathyam" by Latha Rajanikanth (Singer) from "Kochadaiyan" were enchanting ! Very nice Wedding Vows ! Somebody said, a must in marriage and engagement functions. Perhaps, appropriate in sashtiaptha poorthis too ! Lyrics by Vairamuthu Awe !
Also, the complimentary "Manamaganin Sathyam" by Haricharan (with Super Star animation )

Mesmerising !! Divine !! Thanks Mayyam.com for the info. Click the link
Other Numbers are :
Unnai kanadha naan - Viswaroopam
Poi Sollak koodadhu – Run
Just as a passing mention, In the film Meera, M. S. Subbulakshmi renders the song ‘Enadhu ullame’ with absolute surrender to the divine.

Raga Megh Malhar
Legends say this Megh Malhar, Hindustani raga has the power to bring out rains in the area where it is sung.
A tamil song form "Star", "Thom Karuvil Irunthom" by Shankar Mahadevan & A. R. Rahman.
May remind "Dheem Ta Dara" film Thakshak sung by Surja Bhattacharya (ARR)
Perhaps, because it is a 'cloud' raga, there is a lovely rain dance piece . A good dance by Aiswarya Bacchan from Guru : Barso re . In tamil, Ven megam mutta mutta A super song.
