For your information: The sixth raga from Subhapanthuvarali, ie, 51st mela ragam is Panthuvarali. Illayaraja has conspicuously not produced any good number in Panthuvarali.The only one that I know is the re-recording in 'Raja paarvai' in which blind Kamal plays violin with the troup. I forgot the situation for that in the movie. Sa Pa Ma Ga Ri Sa Sa Ri Ni Sa....That is how the recording goes. Though it is usually quoted as good Panthuvarali, I did not like it very much. He had tried some fusion in that. Nothing can beat MSV's aezhu swarang- alukul in Panthuvarali.

It is like listening to a katcheri. Vani Jayaram's performance was terrific. Did she get national award for that song? Perhaps, it is because of this song that she always says that MSV is the best music director who gave carnatic music in pure form, forgetting about Illayaraja's 'indraiku en intha' (vaidhegi kathirunthal) and other innumerable etcetras. Maybe, Illayaraja stopped giving her chance to sing in his movies only because she praised MSV all the time!
