Length of Pallavi - How does it affect a Song? Length of Pallavi - How does it affect a Song?

Is there a correlation between a song's popularity and the length of a pallavi?

In the 80's and early 90's, we had songs with really short pallavis. Most of Ilaiyaraaja's songs had just 4 lines of pallavi. With the advent of Rahman, the pallavis have become longer and longer... the longest one I know of is "Maayaa Machindra" from Indian.

Let's discuss how the Pallavi's length affects a song.
