    i think 'oru murai vandu paarthayo' is the best tamil love song i've ever heard & it ends up in a Mal film.who wrote this song as my cd & cass of this film as well as 'Thenmaavin kombathu'(every song a classic) have never been returned by mates.can some one also please post the lyrics to that song in 'Kireedam'(the best Indian film ever made?) as I can't understand it & I keep reading that it's a great lyrical masterpiece. I don't expect anyone to translate the song into english but did I hear someone volunteering to translate it...thanks in advance.

    Raju:

    The lyrics for "Oru murai vandhu paarththaayo...."
    was written by none other than Kavignar Vali. The music for the song was by M.G. Radhakrishnan, who is the brother of singer M.G. Srikumar. The background music for the movie (MANICHITHRA THAAZHU) was by Johnson, who is a national award winning MD (for KUDUMBA SAMEDHAM). BTW, it is not unusual in Malayalam movies to have one MD doing the songs and another one doing the BGM.

    Typo: Kavignar Vaali (of course!)

    I will briefly discuss songs from the movie SWAATHI THIRUNAAL. The album is a great collection of Swaathi Thirunaal compositions, the only exception being "Mokshamu galadaa puvilo...." by Sri Thyagaraja. The singers include Balamurali Krishna, KJY, SPB, Neyyatinkara Vasudevan, Chitra and Aundhathi. MD for the movie was M.B. Srinivasan.

    Here are the songs:

    Pannakendra sayanaa.... (Balamurali Krishna, KJY & Neyyatinkara Vasudevan)

    Alar sara parithaapam....(KJY & Anuradhi)

    Mokshamu galadaa puvilo....(Balamurali Krishna)

    Parama purusha Jagadeeswara....(KJY & Neyyatinkara Vasudevan)

    Sumasaayaka viduraa....(Arundhathi)

    Paarvathee naayakaa paahimaam....(KJY & Chitra)

    Saarasa mukha sarasi janaabhaa....(KJY)

    Geethaku mithu thaga dheem (thillaanaa)....(Ambilikkuttan)

    Maamavaa sadaa jananee....(Neyyatinkara)

    Devanukei pathi indraa....(SPB)

    Krupayaa paalaya souree....(KJY)

    Jamunaa kinaarei pyaarei....(Balamurali Krishna)

    Kosalendra maadhavaamithaa....(Neyyatinkara)

    Chaliyei kunjanu mo thum....(Chitra)

    GV,
    I have listened to 'param purusha'. N.Vasudevan's rendering and the mridangist (don't know who) have done an excellent job in this song.

    BTW there is a song that goes like 'kanagaangi' (KJY in the raga kanagaangi itself). Can you tell me which film is this song from?

    why is only carnatic film music being discussed here? there's much much more to malayalam film music, if anyone's interested, especially the music of that genius, Johnson.

    let's talk mal music, and not just the semi-classical variety.
    unlike in tamil cinema, discussing mal albums is difficult, simply because it's not often that u find a (post-80s) film with more than 3 songs, and some of the best songs i have heard are in films that have just 2-3 numbers, or even less.
    i would like to take up the album, "NakhakshathangaL", meaning fingernail-prints, for discussion.
    starring vineeth, monisha (i think both debuted in this one), thilakan and jayachandran (the singer) in a delicious cameo, the film is directed by hariharan, one of the finest talents we have seen. the script is by MT (Vasudevan Nair), music by Ravi (Bombay) and lyrics by ONV Kurup. The filom won the best actress award for monisha, who is sadly not amidst us.

    the songs are:

    manjaL prasaadhavum - chitra
    neeraaduvaan - yesudas
    aareyum - "
    kEvalam - jayachandran
    vreeLa - " (a poem recital)

    the film is a beautiful love story, told in the simplest manner possible and peopled by some unforgettable characters. the picturisation is par excellence, as is every other aspect of the film.
    grab the album (its usually available in combination with panchagni and kaathOdu kaathOram, which we can discuss later), and if u can, grab a video as well. you will fall in love with it straightaway and be hooked for life.

    cram:

    Chitra won her second national award for "Manjal prasaadhavum.....", which is a simple, but pleasant song.
