    Today's SOTD appears when the lovers meet . Their love is not for lust or that momentary pleasure but its pure love which also gets reflected through the lyrics .

    Kalangal sendralum neeye deivam
    kallaga nindralum neeye deivam

    thanmanam kaapatrum kalyaname
    naan kaneerai vellum oru pennaga vendum
    naan poovodum pottodum thayagavendum

    Picturised in a decent manner and both displaying high level of etiquette and culture

    I will give 500/100 for P.Susheela Madam for singing such a melodious song
    She starts with a beautiful lengthy humming and ends the charanam with repeating the word Vendum Vendum and hums again.

    During the second interlude, MSV suddenly inserts accordion which shows his class !
    Splendid piece of improvisation by Mellisai Mannar .

    Dear Nakeeran,

    You have picked a very nice song from 'Kaviyathalaivi'

    "KaiyOdu kai sErkkum kAlangaLE" is one of the best in the year 1970 (movie released in Deepavali '70 along with Sorgam, EngirundhO vandhAL and run successfully).

    This song was picturised in Bijapur fort (we can see the tomb of Bijapur Sulthan). Eventhgough a black & white movie, but worthful camera work.

    Thanks for nick selection.

    Maalai pozudhin mayakathile ( Bagyalakshmi )

    Vow what a tune & Bgm :shock:

    Splendid veena , sitar , violin, mirudhangam !

    An unbelievable tune, singing by P.Susheela Madam & the song picturisation also is quite decent and nice !

    Oops , the lyrics by Kavignar Kannadasan !

    Ilayamai ellam verum kanavu mayam idhil maraindhadhu sila kaalam
    thelivum ariyadhu mudivum theriyadhu mayangudhu edhi kaalam

    I have no words to describe further about this classic composition .

    Please listen & enjoy the Master's evergreen melody.

    Sorgam Pakkathil ( Enga Mama )

    We had already covered one beautiful song Chella kiligalam palliyile wherein Nadigar thilagam makes the children sleep .

    Today's SOTD is about a song which appears when Balaji introduces his fiancee Nirmala in a hotel where NT works as a singer .

    The preludes are thunderous & you will spontaneously stand up and dance . A song absolutely western in style with all the instruments at large ! very peppy & fast song sung by TMS & LR Iswari .

    TMS sings exactly like Shivaji ! Vow. If you dont believe, just listen to the words Ondru naan , ondriley ..

    The entire song runs at high speed with extended interludes . Drums roar !

    Pesuvadhu kiliyaa ( Panathottam )

    Not convinced with the picturisation, Thalaivar insisted that the song be re-shot which inturn was obliged duly by the Director. Finally, the changed one was appreciated by everyone !

    Thats thalaivar no ?

    Ok. what about the song ? bangoos thunder and announce the arrival of Puratchi Nadigar MGR !

    MGR :

    Pesuvadhu kiliyaa , pennarasi moziyaa ?
    Kovil konda silyaa ? Kothu malar kodiyaa

    Saroja DEvi :

    Paduvadhu kaviyaa illai paari vallal magana ?
    Cheranukku uravaaa ( hinting that he is from kerala )
    senthamizin nilavaa

    MSV vaazga

    With a small harmonium , what kind of magic this MSV had produced ! :shock:

    [tscii:fb449d8f71]Amongst infinite number of melodies composed by the great duo MSV-TKR, I find this MALAI POZUDHIN MAYAKATHILE extraordinary & beyond one’s imagination.

    A soul stirring tune , orchestration, precise selection of instruments in tune with the situation called for !

    The song features in Gemini Ganesan / Sowcar Janaki / E.V.Saroja starred BAGYALAKSHMI , another interesting movie of the early 60s.

    It’s the tale of a child widow ( who doesn’t know that her husband is actually alive then ) SJ who incidentally stays with her friend EVS whose lover and latter day husband will be GG. The story revolves around the 3 & the plot thickens when SJ comes to know that her childhood husband is still alive.

    Its really a pathetic situation for a YOUNG WIDOW , what trauma she has to undergo in life while parallelly her friend EVS will be well settled down in life with a loving / caring husband and child.

    So, one fine day when EVS requests SJ to sing a song while she will be playing the Veena , being watched by hubby GG very casually and enjoying every bit of the song .

    Given the situation, Kavignar steps in with some MIND BLOWING words , outstandingly orchestrated by the duo .

    Sensing the situation , the duo start with a soothing violin & veena with a small pause .


    From now, I request you all to view the song & observe the lyrics from the view point of SJ and her predicament so that you all will realize the greatness of the song ! Understanding the mood of the song & the situation is paramount for a music follower to follow the song .

    Manadhil irundhum varthaigal illai karanam en thozi …..karanam en thozi

    Inbam sila naal …thunbam sila naal…endravar yaar thozi….
    Inbam kanavil….thunbam edhiril…kaanbadhu en thozi

    As the song moves to the first charanam, the veena flow continues in a scintillating way in flow with the mood of the song before the violin takes it forward ……

    Manamdipavar pol aruginile or vadivu kanden thozi
    Mangayil kayyil kungumam thandhaar …maalayitaar thozi
    At this point, from nowhere a shehnai steps with a delicate touch !

    Vazimarandheno vandhavar nenjil saindhuviten thozi
    Avar …maraven maraven endraar udane marandhu vitaar thozi !

    When the song gets into the second charanam, there will be some nice exchanges between violin & veena before the shehnai guy once again penetrates the 2 with a touch of pathos !

    Kanavil vandhavar yaar ena ketten ….kanavar endraaar thozi
    Kanavar endaal avar …kanavu mudindhadhum ..pirindhadhu en thozi

    Once again the shehnai intervenes & pours his sympathies to SJ !

    Ilamai ellam verum kanavu mayam idhil…maraindhadhu sila kaalam
    Thelivum ariyaadhu mudivum theriyaadhu …mayangudhu edhir kalam ….

    What a lyric !!!!!!!

    An amazing tune & orchestration ……..

    Throughout the song, a mild mirudhangam support will add colour

    It will appear as if even the instruments sympathize with the situation / plight of SJ !

    Because , there will be no loud music or noise but a gentle flow that runs through like a pleasant breeze !

    The song ends in a nice manner with EVS signing off with a veena piece ………

    IMHO, this song goes beyond the situation, the movie , the period then…. The highly dampening Shehnai , the veena & the mirudhangam & the moody violin all take us to a different world

    Hats off to P.Susheela for having sung in absolutely serious manner ,having thoroughly understood the mood of the singer SJ. Excellent rendition clearly exhibiting a sorrowful / sobre mood

    And what a variation from the duo ! ………….. when PS sings Vadivukanden thozi. , she goes to mid range…..and immediately comes back to normal mode through ….. Mangayin kayill kungumam thandhaar !

    And on a high pitch mode during…. Vazi marandheno…vandhavar nenjil ………
    Once again back to base through….. avar maraven maraven……….marandhuvitaar thozi !!

    And the repeating of the last 2 words of charanam is another fine bit of improvisation….an add on to the song to add more pathos

    MSV is a master of the usage of Shehnai

    Class personified !!!!!

    Probably, this was the pattern / song structuring he did those days- the first sentences of charanam in mid range …the third one to shoot in high pitch & the 4th one to come back to normal scale and seamlessly go back to the pallavi

    And the 2 master composers – what an amazing tune, the ludes, the orchestration arrangement …….. out of the world ……… It’s a clear reflection how closely they had followed the song requirement, the situation, the mood of the character & how the song will play in the movie ! The duo once again, have done their homework well !

    When I am meet Mellisai Mannar one day, the first question I will pose is about this song only

    The 3 main characters to the movie also play their part to perfection, each one displaying their role in a nice manner .
