Illayaraja- Vaali combination – 1978 - Ilamai oonjal
aadugirathu: Veteran Director C.V.Sridhar – IR came together in this Film.
IR had expressed his feelings in paal nila pathai where in he says he was
thrilled when he got a call from Sridhar’s office. Though IR had played Guitar
in MSV’s music for Sridhar’s film “Avalukkendru oru manam” for the song “Malar
edhu en kangal” by P.Suseela this was the first Sridhar’s film for which IR was
the Music director.
More to IR’s surprise the film had two super actors Kamal and Rajini . Rajini
didn’t have any songs in the movie. All songs were for kamal and all were
situational (Sridhar is the director). Sridhar- Vaali association started
with Nenjirukkum varai with the song Nenjirukkum … Knowing Sridhar’s taste Vaali
came up with some memorable songs with beautiful lyrics.
The Song of today is “ Ore naal unai naan “ by S.P.Balasubramanian, Vanijayaram.
This is a love song between kamal & Sripriya . Song starts in a restaurant and
travels thru eliot beach.. Ore naal unai naan is my pick follwed by Kinnathil
then vadithu by KJY & S.Janaki
