Alters Amalgamation, complies coherent

In the 1980’s, mostly there was only two names in the Playback section of the movie’s title cards, SPB and S.Janaki. This pair took the fans’ souls with their melodious voices. No musicians and producers wanted to change this winning combination, neither the fans. In the early 1990’s Ilaiyaraja changed this winning combination and created a new winning combination of SPB and KS Chitra. Sporadically, Raaja used another successful combination of MSV’s times, SPB and P.Susila. If Raaja nexus this combination meant, he decided to give a melodious number to the Tamizh Film music. There are many notable hits from this combination under the baton of Raaja, who will forget the “Pesakudadhu” from “Adutha Vaarisu” or “Thenn Madurai” from “Tharmathin Thalivan” . To the above all, I like the popular song from this combination “Muthumani Maala” from Chinna Gounder.

Chinna Gounder was directed by RV Udyakumar, who was successful director, then, with a series of hits like Kizhaku Vaasal, Eajaman and Singaravelan. The specialty of RV Udyakumar is that the maximum of songs were penned by him only, and all the songs are evergreen hits. This song also penned by RV Udhaykumar and the music scored by Raaja. No need to say about Raaja’s music, he usually sketches the lyrics with his baton, and the resultant will always be a finished product, and this song “Muthumani maala” is one such product.

In the process of designing a finished product, executors play a vital role; in this song, SPB and P.Susila portray the role of executors, and assist the composer with their mellifluous voices.

RV Udhayakumar’s favorite singer is SPB and he always wanted SPB to render the maximum songs from his pen. Once, RV Udhayakumar praised SPB “Balu sir paadina, ennoda ezhuthukal Ezhundu Aanandha nadanamadum” (If Balu sir sings my songs, then words of my songs will dance in ecstasy), what RVU said was hundred percentage true, just listen to the line “Megamdan nilava muduma”. Also, SPB produces the elusive expression to the words of RVU with his expressive way of singing. There is a line “Asai peshula paadhi moochula lesa degam suuderaaa”, when utters the “Moochula”, he ventilates neatly and while in “lesa” he goes nimble, and finishes with his usual elastic effect of “suudera”, he is an singer with effective emoticons.

I like S.Janaki very much; she is my sole favorite singer. But, one should agree the divinity in the voice of the veteran P.Susila. Casual, melodious, and softness are the trademark PS’s voice. In this song, his voice not only gave the divinity to the song but also to the heroine.

Eventhough, this film got a duet of the famous combination SPB and SJ, this song by SPB and PS, alter in the amalgamation by Raaja, prevailed the race, and fans titled this pair as “MATCHLESS MERGER”.
