Friday Melody

Hoping to have a Friday melody special with a theme(nature, colour as suggested by my dear friend, philosopher and ---guide, Sadhashiv) every week.

It is 'Kaatru' this week.

Kaatrekenna veli - Avargal

I cannot say which one I like the best about this song: the lyrics, the picturisation, the voice. One cannot help feeling elated listening to this song. In the picturisation, the first thing that comes to my mind is the scene where Sujatha hesitates and then goes ahead & plucks a flower where there is sign board saying 'Do not pluck flowers'!!

Kaatre en vaasal vandhaai - Rhythm

Vasanth, IMO, is the best director to come from KB's school(has anyone noticed that alternate movies of his are hits). Like his Guru, K. Balachander, Vasanth too has always given special importance to music in his movies. Enjoy this one from Rhythm.

Kaatril endhan geetham - Johnny

I have never seen this movie but love all the songs. So this is for all you Rajni fans!

Hi,
I came here from Balaji's 'Aasai'.
You have a nice blog. We have a lot in common...please check my blog.!

I liked all the songs.! The first one..Is it kannadasan.? All the movies are class. Vasanth - IMHO is a great Movie maker of modern times.

Thanks for all the songs.!! keep it coming with 'Themes' like this.!

fatwalleter, thanks for the detailed list.

Balaji, Deepak, Vatsan
Not only Johnny, I have not seen any Rajni movie since 'Guru Sishyan'(except Baba!)

Keerthi, how come you always come up with Mjaar, Sivaji songs???

Narayanan Sir, thanks for visiting my blog and your encouraging words. Yes, 'kaatrukenna veli' is by Kannadaasan.

Deepak, thanks. BTW, yes, Vasanth is the one who directed 'Keladi Kanmani'(and 'Aasai', 'Rhythm' among others).

Senthil, thanks for the extra kaathu. How did I miss the uzhavan song, Che!!(Kannamma song is reserved for future topics)
