You can verify whether the youtube view count for 16 vayathinile songs get increasing day by day or not. Songs like Senthoorappoove Senthoorappoove from Ilaiyaraja lives forever in the air. The whole album permeates into Tamilnadu houses in unimaginable reach.

It does not reflect the interests of the remaining 95%.

Look at the youtube count of the song which is almost 20years older than Senthoorapoove. It does not have the attraction what Sridevi has provided to the youth of 80's.

depends on age group and perception....... ppl who were in their teens in late 70s will vouch for 16 vayathinilae, ppl who belong to the pre-60's era might feel bhagapirivinai better...... for me one is an apple and another is orange...... i can enjoy both at different mood sets without getting into the complexity of comparing them but will stand for Rahman's songs

i used to have some dislike for the popular late 70's and early 80's songs in my young age, esp songs from Nizhalgal (other than pon maalai pozhuthu song) and many BR movie songs, mohan songs etc, came to appreciate those songs only in the satellite and audio cd era when heard them in digital sound...... also was in awe of them when i heard those songs in orchestras...... only then i realized, my perception on the songs were due to the quality of those songs where i heard from mono speakers (FM radios and dd channels) and saw in poor quality film prints......
Also i always had this doubt, most of the films that came before 70's (from late 50's onwards) had good prints and good quality sound tracks.... even the color films that came during 60's (Eastmen color) were of rich quality compared to most of the films that came in 70s, is there any reason to it? or is it just me who thinks like that way?

Claiming that my generation had the best actor , best Director, Best MD and all is fan boyish and claiming that they are the best of the century and all as if we are experts in that field is not correct. Some of them here often make comments of this sort and that is the reason this comparison was made.

This is why the entry of Bharathiraja's 16V was significant. It had mass appeal. Its biggest asset was not Rajini or Sridevi.Kamal's acting Yes but the main asset was Illayaraja's music. Fellows who had not watched MGR or Sivaji movies or any Tamil films till then watched 16V with me and enjoyed it. After this movie and Apoorva Ragangal Kamal got a huge following among the movie going teenagers. Rajini became a star after Murattu Kalai.
