The violinnnnnssssssssssssss....................

I am sure anyone who hears this song will never ever forget the violin notes that kicks up the song.

Some common trivia:
  • This song was featured on Ravindar-- the then famous dancing star (apart from Kamal in those days ofcourse!!).
  • This movie starred Shivaji in the main role with Ambika. Thank god for small favours that this wasn't pictured on him!?! *LOL*
  • The singer Raaj Seethaaraman went off the planet after this and couple of other numbers which he rendered for IL.
  • Anyone who wants to catch Shivaji dancing can see Kaalam Maaralaam by SPB/ VJ in the same movie. Wonderful song but pathetic picturisation !!

Movie: Vaazhkai
Music by: Ilayaraaja
Originally rendered by Raaj Seethaaraman & P.Susheela
Sung by BlueByrd & Meera

The essence of dhwani....

Famed music director of the yesteryears Naushad at his very best in this number. In the original, KJY's haunting hindustani style was matched up by the subtly sad yet yearning filled voice of P.Susheela. An amazingly lingering number....

Movie: Dhwani
