    #193 சிறிய பறவை சிறகை விரிக்கத்துடிக்கிறதே
    (அந்த ஒரு நிமிடம், 1985 , ஜானகியுடன்)


    Fantastic song!

    One of the best from the SPB-SJ-IR combo, IMO...with the lovely percussion arrangements for pallavi, 3 saraNams with the second one different from the first & 3rd, both in melody & arrangments (they're differentiating the local Ambikapathi-Amaravathi from the foreign Romeo-Juliet / Laila-Majnu tragic pairs it seems - by way of resorting to mridhangam and nAttiya music). Ofcourse, vizhalukku iRaiththa neer - despite having the talented Oorvashi getting paired with Kamal, the movie was such a terrible bore and flopped (directed by Major S). Did she get another chance to work with Kamal in-between or had to wait for five years to do the terrific Palakkad girl?

    This movie reminds me of a trip to yet another wingmate's village - because that's when we watched it in the nearby Thuraiyur town. This guy was a special friend, who looked so mature in the whole wing and was also one. (For the looks, he had the thickest meesai - had started shaving from high school I think and so looked way senior and mature than all of us. He was also soft-spoken, not getting into silly arguments, never bothered talking much about marks / ranks / this / that, never tense about ejjAms...and is now a top ranking official in Railways). We weren't that much close during the first two hostel years (Agate / Coral) but then ended up in the same wing in Emerald. Besides, he was also ECE. That brought more opportunities to interact. How? Mainly for "sharing books".

    I need to talk about the books now. Except the first sem, I didn't have to buy ANY book at all for the whole engg course! Not just my experience, but that of most of my year mates! Reason? Library / book-bank / book-sharing in hostel! We used to get 3 books from book-bank each sem plus progressively increasing library tokens (1 for 1st year, 2 for 2nd year etc) and with those, could pick standard MKV / Millman kind of books for each sem. What I don't have, another used to have in the wing and it wasn't difficult to share at all - even on the ejjAm day. Worst case, some copying / writing down / visiting library fixed it!

    Well, there was another book connection with this friend. He was the one who introduced J H Chase to me. I had seen those JHC books on book stalls / library but always thought they were 'maRRa' books -looking at those bikini pics on cover - and didn't venture. This meesaiwAlA was reading a JHC one day and told me it has less maRRa content than Sujatha or Pushpa Thangadurai and gave me that "You find him, I'll fix him". And that started my feverish checking out of all JHC's one by one from library until there was no more (around 50 of them - at one point of time I was reading them day and night for weeks!)

    That way, he opened a new avenue to me which continued on for years with other janaranjaga writers like S Sheldon, I Wallace, R Ludlum...didn't they say your associates can have some influence on you?

    Lovely 7 aam arivu review at Grouchy days. ( I already left my comment there about the Kamal article, the best I have come across on Kamal and his fans)

    Back to the thread,

    ANDHA ORU NIMIDAM - Kamal's worst movies votingla top 5 vil guaranteedaa idam pidikkum. A perennial embarassment for fans like me. I think, Kamal fans should launch some mission to destroy the CD/DVD copies of the movie all round the world - the movie is the living Blood Line of Kamal's "wedding" with Nth grade non sense.

    # Mothirathula Visham ..... Shakehand Oosi murders by Major ..... ennaa kidney paa ?

    # Bathroomla Bombu ..... widow Amma kulikka povaango ..... One nimit time ...... Run and Diffusu .......Title Justifiedu

    # "Pachondiye Keladaa " song appuram Kathi Sandai ....... Kamal versus "surprise package" re entry man Vijayapuri C. Anandan ( Veerathirumagan fame ) ..... what a disgrace ?

    # Songs ennamo Okay thaan. esp Siriya Paravai , otherwise nothing much.

    Chinna vayasu, hardcore fan-u, ithayum rasichom. Of course, I caught this on TV like a decade ago. Yabbaa, mudiyala. Must be some charity thingy Kamal did for Major (any back story to this? Plum?)

    nanRi, baroque!

    BTW, I'm not posting any song today.

    As a mark of respect to Raja sir's wife who passed away.

    Will resume after the funeral.

    Hi All
    I started this thread with good intentions of carrying this thread till end, unfortunately due to work commitments; I am unable to participate on a regular basis. I would like to take this opportunity to thank "app" anna for his marvellous work! There are no words to describe his writing skills! (wish the greatest singer ever produced by India ,Dr .S.P.Balasubramanium sees this thread )

    Regards
    Raghu

    nilavu thoongum neram....

    WOW! magical interludes for Caressing S.P.B, Janu is always emotive. Peerless singers indeed!

    aesthetic heart of Ilayaraja!

    First interlude is my favorite... bass guitar goes counterpoint with mouth organ then flute and violin... DIVINE.
    Second interlude is a violin masterpiece.


    ILAYARAJA WITH S.P.B!

    Remember PAGAL NILAVU , App_eng

    Murali mouth organ vaasichundey Revathiyai thorathindu eruppar.

    Uyarathilerundhu periya paaraileyerundhu kizha kudhichu, avalai bhayamurudhiduvaaru...
    back stroke swim pannindey, mouth organ vaasichchu

    Maina maina... irish interludes, Ir sings .

    Moondru Mudichchu...M.S.V . Kamal, Sri Devi go boating , prelude of Vasantha kaala ...... Early Rajinikanth's masterpiece!

    oh... regarding kahani

    First time மோகன் played this tune நிலவு தூங்கும் நேரம்.... to இளவரசி with his mouth organ in their place - கூட்சு வண்டி, it was பகல் நேரம், app _eng .

    As I remember .. story is a flashback . சித்தி & Co கிட்டே இருந்து தப்பிச்சு ஓடி வரும்போது, மோகன் saves her . Later one time கல்யாண வீட்டுலே சாப்ட போவாங்க, அப்போ துரத்திடுவாங்க , that நைட் first time , இளவரசி plays the same tune in his mouth organ .
    the சோக composition when they are living separately , she left , he moved on with a job too பகல் நேரம் only.


    நிலவு தூங்கும் நேரம்
    நினைவு தூங்கிடாது
    இரவு தூங்கினாலும்
    உறவு தூங்கிடாது........

    vinatha.
