Classical ragas in Tamil film songs

Classical ragas in Tamil film songs

Tamil film songs and classical ragas: Version 4
Release date: 8/1994 by Subu, Kannikeswaran, Krishna Sivaramapuram, Ramesh Vaidhyanathan, Ramesh Mahadevan, Subramaniam Ramamani and others, Updated: 6/2000 by Vidhya, Rajaraman.
Some film songs are based on catchy classical tunes and here, we list the songs according to the raagam they might be based on. We list some such songs under a raga (with a *) which is probably the closest(where the musician probably got the idea from). This list categorizes some songs into classical ragas. Some of the old classics are truly in the ragas listed, while some of the recent additions maybe more like 'in the scale of the raga' (there is a world of difference). Some doubtful ones are added with a (?). Feel free to add more songs to the list/ correct any mistakes. If you have additions, suggestions, please send them to Comments@tfmpage.com.
