The river Yamuna is here!

Chevalier Shivaji acted in dual roles in this movie 'Gauravam', which was released in 1973, directed by 'Viyatnam Veedu Sundaram'. Music was composed by the Melody King, MSV. This movie had some good numbers from T.M.Soundarajan viz., 'neeyum naanuma?' and 'Palootti valartha kiLi'.

Shivaji acted as a leading lawyer (Barrister Rajinikanth?) and his nephew. The Comedy Actor Vivek imitates Shivaji's - so-called 'over acting' - in his comedy tracks these days. Well after 30 years when we see this movie again, it does apppear to be over-acting - compared to today's acting standards.

SPB and P.Suseela had sung this beautiful duet song which is very sweet and soft to hear.

With a breezing prelude, PS starts the Pallavi with her honey-soaked voice, with SPB singing the Charanam - both have beautifully rendered this song.
