She's like a Golden Lotus!


A raffle was drawn and the winners enjoyed a trip in a Train!! Yes. The sponsors actually ran a train from Chennai to Kanyakumari, which was first of its kind in the State. When the movie 'minsara kanavu' (loosely translated as 'electrifying dream', came in Hindi as 'sapne') was released in 1996, it was a box office hit. "Isay Puyal" A.R.Rahman's rocking music, beautiful Arvind Samy, bouncing Prabhu Deva, Nasar in a new get-up, cool cinematography - all put together made this movie as a great entertainer - different from the Trade Mark commercial movies which had belly dance, stupid fight sequences, punch dialogues, etc. The movie was like a Greeting Card!

Every song was so well done in this movie. The poetically picturized 'vennilave vennilave' of Hariharan, rocking and rolling 'mana madurai mamara kilaiyile' of Unni Menon, sweet 'anbendra mazhaiyile' of Anuradha Sriram, beautiful 'poo pookkum osai' by Sujatha, and the 'strawberry kanne' by Sadana Sargam and Krishnakumar!

This solo sung by SPB, for which Kajol calls Arvind Samy to get drenched in the water-falls, got him the National Award. "Thanga thamarai magale" had a different tune, beats, and the voice of SPB which made it stand apart from the rest of the crowd. Listen to the way SPB sings 'vaa azhage'! Awesome!

There was a lot of publicity campaigns ran for this movie. One of the raffle question asked was "What's the color of the dress, Kajol takes off and throws out in this song?" !!!!! :) :) Guess they couldn't find anything else attractice in this song? COMMERCIALS.... COMMERCIALS... may be they judged the the taste of the mass well!

Baluji's call of the Golden Lotus Girl, got her the National Award!



Well. Is he identified by these awards?
