Pramadavanam Vendum

I would rate the "Pramadavanam Vendum" from His Highness Abdullah as the best Malayalam song I have ever heard. To hear the song, goto: Raaga

Pramadavanam - His Highness Abdullah
Music : Raveendran
Lyrics : Kaithapram
Singer : Yesudas

Pramadhavanam veendum rithu raagam choodi Shubha saayahnam pole..(2)
Theli deepam kali nizhalin kaikkumbil nirayumbol Enn.. (Pramdhavanam)
Ethetho kathayil sarayuviloru chudu Mizhineer kanamay njaan Kaviyude gaana rasaamrithalahariyiloru nava Kanaka kireedamithaniyumbol..innithaaaa.... (Pramdhavanam)
Ethetho kathayol yamunayiloru vanmalaray Ozhukiya njaaan.
Yadhukula madhurima thazhukiya muraliyiloru Yuga samkrama geethayunarthumbol . (Pramdhavanam)

Kannadasanai kaatha kannan

In early 1972 Kaviarasar made preparations for his third (or fourth?) daughter's wedding. The date was set and barely three days into the wedding he was in a dilemma. Someone who promised to advance the money for the wedding disappointed Kaviarasar at the eleventh hour. Poor chap, it was during these type of situations he will cry like an innocent child. The good Lord had heard him cry....

Filmi village

What is a typical tamil film village? A village is used to have lot of mountains, rich green scenary, the guys should speak either madurai dialect or coimbatore gounder dialect and one big banyan tree. This is what we were forced to beleive by the directors like, soundarajan , r.v.udayakumar, k.s.ravi kumar. Thanks to thangar bachchan, lingusamy, and bala. we could be able to see other kinds of villages from south arcot , tanjavur and trichy districts. Lingusamy seems to favour villages and other places near Kumbakonam which has some great traditional and fine old buildings and structures. I lived most of my life in Kumbakonam, and considerable years in chidambaram, i feel kumbakonam be my home town. But i like chidambaram and other places too for other reasons. Thats why i was happy to see films like azhagi, solla marantha kathai ,which were shot in south arcot and kadalur districts, particularly near panruti and neyveli. Here in these films, thangar captured these wonderful places , people, their language and senses wonderfully. I felt i was there in those places, because I had been there so many times. Hope thangar's next film as the tile says "chidambarathil oru appasami", will be shot entirely in chidambaram and the neighbouring places.
