Unforgettable Melodies (more)

Couldn’t hold this back – you’ll know why in a little while!

Sit back and lose yourself in…


‘Velli kinnamthan’ in Uyarntha Manithan, a 1968 film written by Javat Seetharaman and directed by Krishnan Panju produced by AVM with Sivaji Danesan and Sowcar Janaki in the lead roles. The film’s soundtrack and background score were composed by need-I-say M/ZS. Viswanathan and lyrics by Vali. Singers: As only T. M. Sounderarajan, P. Susheela could.

So sweet and hummable – Sivaji looking Lord-like even in romance:


P. Susheela melodiously goes ‘Chittu kuruvi mutham koduthu’ – not recommended for bathroom singing – in Puthiya Paravai, a 1964 romantic thriller directed by Dada Mirasi. Produced by Sivaji Ganesan, the film features him and Saroja Devi in the lead roles, It is a remake of the Bengali film Sesh Anka (1963), which is itself inspired by the British film Chase a Crooked Shadow (1958). Music by who-else-but Viswanathan and Ramamoorthy and lyrics by Kannadasan.


Finally the lovable tragi-comedian of yester years Chandrababu cavorting with Jamuna in ‘Kunguma poove’ in Maragatham (1959). Music: S.M.Subbaiah Naidu – so Shankar-Jaikishen like!.

Here’s a DVD version of it from Joe Niranjan Pancratius:
