vaishAli was another big hit during the late 80's for Bombay Ravi.
This too was in combo with the famed writer MT Vasudevan Nair but the director wasn't Hariharan but Bharathan (who did Devar Magan with NT & Kamal in Thamizh)...

Perhaps the biggest hit movie for the Hariharan / MTV / Bombay Hari combo - oru vadakkan veeragAtha that had Mammootty & Madhavi...
There are some nice songs in that too :
unni gaNapathi thamburAnE :
kaLari viLakku theLinjadhAnO :
my favourite, indhulEkhA kaN thurannu (KJY excels) :
There's another song that somewhat reminds his nakhakshadhangaL song, chandana lEpa sugandham...however, the visuals are enjoyable

An enchanting raagamaalika composed by Jaya Vijaya (twin brothers K.G. Jayan and K.G. Vijayan) for the movie NIRAKUDAM (1977).
The song evokes memories of the rendering styles of Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar, Chowdiah and Paalakkaad Mani Iyer.
Singer: K.J. Yesudas.
Jayan and Vijayan were desciples of Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar. They introduced Yesudas to Chembai for the first time. South Indian actor Manoj K. Jayan is K.G. Jayan`s son.

MSV sang his first Malayalam movie song, his own composition,
for the 1972 movie "paNi theeraaththa veedu" (பணி தீராத்த வீடு).
Lyrics were by Vayalar Rama Varma. Here it is:
Jayachandran's first song under MSV's baton was also in the same movie.

Ivan Megharoopan - Sharreth
Nisha Surabhi has some 70's MSV touch which is eluding me, will get it soon. Ramya Nambeesan's (surprisingly a great singing talent from this kuLLanari koottam actress) Aande Londe has some IR's early tribal flavor, but nothing can be taken away from Sharreth for giving such phenomenal soundtrack. The magic in K J Yesudas's voice in Anuragini is enough to forget ourselves. The harmonium in this song is just mesmerizing. Sharreth and Chitra has taken the best song for themselves in Vishukili. O! Mariyaman is just fabulous except the dialogues in between makes the song little sluggish. It somewhat prevents to enjoy the song with fullest satisfaction, but no way a lesser composition, as it takes different unexpected turns. Sunitha's Innale Njan is a sober lullaby. The visuals are very interesting in all these songs and does not give much clue about the movie plot, which makes me curious to watch this film.
Top album this year! Sharreth sir is getting better and better with every outing. These are the kind of albums India should be proud of and recognize it correctly at correct time. This soundtrack, Ivan Megharoopan is even better than his previous Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty. Thanks Sunil for introducing this soundtrack to me.

Thanks raagadevan for the videos.
aaNdE lONdE sounds like Ambum Kombum (Pazhassi Raja). Will take time to come of these songs. VishukiLi is ultimate.

Grandmaster - Deepak Dev
Doore Engo with great vocals by Sanjeev T (Rahman Ji's Guitarist) Nice balance of soothing orchestration and electric guitar riffs. I've been hooked onto this ever since I heard it!
