    Aruvadai Naal

    Some how I have developed a special feeling about the movie "Aruvadai Naal" released in the eighties.

    The movie is not a great or a land mark movie. But if you ask me to pick top 10 BGMs of IR, I will place this film one among the top 5.


    Starring Prabhu, Pallavi, Indira and Vadivukkarasi etc, it is a story basically about the love between a ( as usual ) innocent village boy Prabhu and a educated Christian girl Pallavi who comes to the village for becoming a nun. The love fails to reach marriage and this pain is superbly brought out in the rest of the film by none other than Ilaiyaraja's truly mesmerising BGM.
    The director ( I dont know his name ) himself has acted in the movie as a Christian father.

    The theme of the movie is the evergreen melody by K.S.Chitra "Devanin koil moodiya neram..."

    What an orchestration and what a feel ! The lyrics makes your eyes wet though you never loved or met love failure.

    "Inaivadhu ellaam pirivadharkkaaga
    Idhayangal ellaam marappadharkaaga
    marandhaal thaane nimmadhi"

    An excellent gem that went unpicturized

    Remarkable performance by Pallavi as a girl struck by love failure.

    Some "Punyavaan" has uploaded the highlights of this movie in youtube.





    Please listen to the BGM and share your feelings

    Is that so? I remember seeing the picturisation with the nun character driving in a tvs champ or something. These movies aren't telecasted in the channels for some reason. At least, an IR-hits show in the dreaded music channels might do.. but the channels never seem to bother. Maybe they didn't get the rights.

    While I have not watched the movie...the song Dhavenin Kovil has captured my heart...at melancholy times it is the song that i repeatedly listen too....the pain and the strength to go past it when you're abandoned and forgotten anyways...beautiful...it was one of the very few songs that seem to speak to me directly...

    That was the compilation of random scenes and made in to a song by SUN music. Actually that song went unpicturized

    You can see this film getting telecast occassionally in Raj Digital Plus. For many rare eighties films, Raj TV is the place

    Amazing song .... looks like IR did very well with songs that had a christian touch..(usually organ, church bell, guitars)

    The director is late R.P. Viswam who acted as Prabhus father (villain ?) in the same film.

    The Christian father is Prabhus blood brother Ramkumar.

    " Chinna ponnu chinna ponnu " is also another good melody from the same film.

    Sorry, the director could not have been R.P.Viswam.

    Because few years back, I saw the interview of that director ( he said director Kathir is his close friend and they were trying for chance together ). He was a middle-aged fat man..but I don't remember his name.

    Yeah, your'e right. I was confused. Director is GM Kumar.

    Actually, he is married to Pallavi, "Aruvadai Naal"'s heroine. He also acted as Pasupathy's father in " Veyyil ".
