Idhu "Balu" Paadum Thaalaattu..... (A TR-SPB song)

This song is from the movie "Oru Thalai Raagam" (1980). This i remember as the first T Rajender's movie and what a debut film it was. A totally new love concept, not thought of for films till then or experimented upon. It was a trendsetter in many ways. 1) the lovers do not touch each other in the film 2) there are no female singers 3) many male singers were used namely SPB, TMS, Malaysia Vasudevan, Jayachandran and Jolly Abraham 4) a lot of new entrants like Chandrasekhar, Shankar, Rupa, Usha (i think she became TR's wife later) and so on...

Our SPB had sung two songs in this movie and this song is a touching one with excellent lyrics and music by TR. What a poetic treat he has presented in this song.
Our SPB has sung it with the right emotion elevating the song to a great level

TR has used the veena (hope i am right here) generously for this song and it is prominent throughout the song adding beauty to the composition. I read somewhere that this song is based on "Kaapi" raagam.

JUST LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND ENJOY

Idhu Kuzhandhai Paadum thaalaattu
idhu iravu nera boopaalam
idhu maerkil thoondrum udhayam
idhu nadhiyillaadha odam
(Idhu Kuzhandhai...)

nadai marandha kaalgal thannin thadaiyathai paarkiraen
valamizhandha therathu ondrai naaldhoorum izhukkiraen
sirakizhandha paravai ondrai vaanathil paarkiraen
sirakizhandha paravai ondrai vaanathil paarkiraen
uravuraadha pennai yenni naallellaam vazhgiraen

(Idhu Kuzhandhai...)

Verum naaril karam kondu poomaalai thodukiraen
verum kaatril uli kondu silai ondrai vadikiraen
vidindhu vitta poozhudhil kuda vinmeenai paarkiraen
vidindhu vitta poozhudhil kuda vinmeenai paarkiraen
viruppamila pennai yenni ulagai naan verukiraen

(Idhu kuzhandhai...)

ulamarindha pinthaano avalai naan ninaithadhu
uravuruvaal yena thaanae manadhai naan koduthadhu
uyirizhandha karuvai kondu kavithai naan vadipathu
uyirizhandha karuvai kondu kavithai naan vadipathu
oruthaalaiyaai kaathalilae yethanai naal vazhvadhu

(Idhu Kuzhandhai...)
