Mind-boggling Melody flows along with ‘Vaigai’

Mind-boggling Melody flows along with ‘Vaigai’

I have many friends from Madurai, temple city of Tamizhnadu, so always there will be a debate with them by comparing Madurai with my own Trichy, Rock city of Tamizhnadu. Sometimes, the discussion goes beyond the rule of a forum (with lots of censored words), and but still I believe (may be still childish) Trichy is the greatest city than Madurai, and my own Trichy got Srirangam Temple which is popular than Meenakshi temple, Rock fort is gigantic than Pazhamudhirsolai, REC is far better than TEC for engineering education, and many comparison which will make Madurai-Sand people to throw stones and putrefied tomato towards me, not to escape from those, I’m going to tell onething that I never compared the divine Cauvery river with deity Vaigai. Because, I love both the rivers not only for its divinity, but also because of the cini songs on these rivers sung by SP Balasubramanium, for me he is the only singer knows how to catch the souls of fans like me with his mesmeric voice. He sang many songs for the river Cauvery, equally many songs for the river vaigai too, who will forget that melodious lullaby “Thene Thenpandi” and mournful “Vaigariyil vaigai karayil”. More than the above, I love one song, which will be always in my soul , the song “Then madurai” from “Tharmathin Thalivan”.

On the exceptional side, there was not that much hype for the film “Tharmathin Thalivan”, which is unusual for a Rajni’s movie. Even ‘atta’ (colloquial way of representing FLOP) movie like ‘Shiva’ got a catchy slogan “Gumthalakadi Gummava, Rajni na summava”, honestly speaking, even “Film News” Aanandhan mayn’t aware of the release date of Tharmathin Thalivan. Like all of you, I impressed with Malasiya Vasudevan’s open throated “Oothadai Oothadi” song initially. Then, all the Rajni fans of my class “ettampu ‘aha’ pirivu” (8th std, ‘A’ sec) irritated me by saying “Your Kamal is nothing infront of our Rajni, go and see the movie Tharmathin Thalivan, especially the song Mutamizh Kaviye song, and see the Rajni’s romantic look with Yellow T-shirt”, first I got irritated with that, because for me Kamal was God at that time, but after getting into that song, I started to love Rajni and his look in that song, which was well sung by “Mr.Voice” KJ Jesudas, and “chinnakuyil” Chitra. But, slowly I started to love a song from that movie and strived for that song, and waiting for that song in Friday’s “Ol(1)ium, O(2)lium”, that song is “Thenmadurai” sung by SPB.

The song starts with a mind-boggling work of raja and his musical strings, and there is no doubt, why he titled maestro, so. For any Good work, there is a need of an enhancing work, which will complete the divinity, thus the voice of SPB for Raaja’s good work. Have you noticed this fact that in most of the musical hit movies, the name of the hero will be “Balu” (May be Balasubramanian, Balakrishnan, or simply Balu and etc), just refresh musical hit movies like Saagara Sangamam, Pudhu Vasandham, and many to list. In this film too, the hero Rajni’s name is Balu, Prof.Balu. I think the directors always preferred the name of the great singer Indian Film Music ever produced.

This song is based on the theme love and relation. In the first stanza, importance given to the brotherly love and the second is for a lover. SPB, very well catches the soul of the music lovers, and how he differentiates the first stanza with the second is the work of a master.

In the first stanza, SPB explains us how to express love towards a brother. SPB sang many songs for representing a sister’s love, but I think this is the only song for the brotherly love. The expression in “Thambiii undhan ullamdhane” will say it all. We can give anything to SPB, for his melodious way of singing the lines “Kannodudan Un Vannam”. Always SPB’s finishing sounds the voluminous, in this song too, just listen to the capricious curve of this song and the way SPB’s finishing “Indha Nesam Paasam Naalum Vaazhga”.

Now, the second stanza is for a lover and for a romantic mood. SPB shifts from brotherly love to romantic mood with his soothing intonation of “Nenjil Ennai Naalum Vaithu”. When hero Rajni sings for his brother Prabhu, the throat of Balu maintains some decorum, but when the same hero sings for his lover Suhasini, the same throat of Balu starts the usual ‘leela’s, just listen to the lines, “Poovai Soodi Pottum Vaika”, rather than reading my texts, it will say it all. Then, the punch, the highlight of the song, what else other than the cute laughing of SPB, while singing “Ullam thannai Kollai konda Kalvan Inghu Naanenane”. In this note, I want to tell you all onething that there are many singers use to sing between songs, and SPB is not at all pioneer for such a work too, but whenever I listen to SPB’s, I get heavenly feeling.

Well, do you have brothers? And you are far away from them? And feels that you are missing your brother(s), if so, just listen to this song in the night after finishing your routine work, SPB makes you to feel your brother aside with you. Now, Its 12 midnight in the Bengal Capital City, there is a pin-drop silence in the area where my guest house situated, I’m opening my Laptop, usual clicks in to real player, selects this song and SPB takes me to the heaven along with my brothers as I’m slowly closing my eyes. God night brothers and sweet dreams my dear anonymous wife!
