There is a song
'poonjittu kannangal ponmani theepathil
paal sombu ponguthu kanneerilE'
in film 'Thulabaram' is a nice, melodious song
which is aptly written for the film.
I did n't know whether that was discussed

Movie : Simla Special ...
After Kamal comes to know that
SV.Sekar has betrayed him . He sings
Paal pola kallum undu
Gunathaaley erandum undu
naan enna kalla paala
nee sollu nanda laala
This suits the situation very well

Movie: thulabaram. It is a remake of thulabaram(mal) which got one of the 3 oorvashi award to Sharadha. It is one of the sad story films where people come out of theaters with a kerchief in their hands.
The storyline goes like this where a slumdweller works as a servant in someplaces faces many problems. On a festival day(pongal) where she is not able to make good food for her kids, She sings this song and makes her kids sleep so that they can forget a bit of their hungriness. a touching one
poonjittu kannangal ponmani deepathil
paal sombu pongudhu panneerilE
pongal piranthalum deepam erinthaalum
aezhaigal vaazhvadhu kanneerilE - ingu
aezhaigal vaazhvadhu kanneerilE
ponnulagam kannil kaanum varai kannurangu.
next she compares food and dress of her kids with the kids of her ejaman since she is the one who feeds both
selvargal illathil seeraattum piLLaiku
ponvaNNa kiNNathil paal kanji
kanneer uppittu kaaveri neerittu

idhayangal aengudhu vaazhvinRi
ponnulagam kannil kaanum varai kannurangu

The situation is sad. Whenever anybody hear this song it makes their heart heavy in the likes of
'nilave ennidam nerungathey'

pal, the situation is not totally sad. avm raajan and saaradha are shown to be happy with what they have in the movie. only in some places in the song, there is a tinge of sadness. also, i think the song occurs again just before she kills her children...

Pal & bb,
I remember this movie in pathces (I was under 10 when I watched it). I guess this song appears twice in the movie. Once with AVM Rajan and again after he gets murdered in an union quarrel.
There is another heart-wrenching song in this movie - kaatrinilaE, perung kattrinilaE by KJJ.
Sorry for the digression..

Have anyone heard the song 'kaana vandha katchchi yenna velli nilave' in the film Baghyalakshmi?
This is totally situational song. Really fantastic

I happened to watch this movie recently. Though this song is not a sad one (the first version). It is a 'fatalistic' song. I am not sure pal got the lyrics right, the woman sings positively and it is AVM Rajan who songs 'Ezhaigal vAzhvathu kanneerilE'. I liked the other song, which Ravy mentions, for its melody (like the lyrics for this song). Somehow it reminded me of the chemmeen (Mal) song.
All these were penned by kannadhAsan right ? We do really miss him. A man's life is well-lived when he is missed. What a career !!!

I'm from Malaysia. I've been watching
Tamil movies for 30 years but I especially
like the artful speech, lyrics and poise
of older movies compared to the present
day ones. The songs in Thulabaram are
very melodious though melancholic.
I'll continue to watch such movies.
