Best and Worst Charanams

We have great songs that start off with amazing preludes and pallavis and also great interludes. However, there are some songs that have lost their impact because of long winding charanams. My favorite all time greatest charanam is for the song "Vaasamilla Malaridhu, Vasanthathey Theyduthu" by the inimitable T Rajender/SPB in Oru Thalai Raagam. Then comes the charanam for the song "Kanni Raasi Un Raasi" by KJY/G Devarajan. One of the best songs of IR himself as he has claimed lost its impact on me because of the long and lost charanam. The song was, Idhayam Oru Koil from Idaya Koil. Nanbargale, please list out your best and worst charanams after looking at the previous posting as if you agree or disagree and add your input. Like are there some innovative charanams like for the song "Lucky, Lucky" of ARR. You know, Charanam is a concept only unique to Indian music. A beautiful, short and sweet charanam goes a long way in making a fantastic song.
