Vaa Ponmayile from Poonthalir

Dear SPB Fans,

This is a solo melody from our Emperor for the Tamil Film “Poonthalir” (1979) featuring Sivakumar & Sujatha. Music by IR and lyrics by Panju Arunachalam. One of my all-time favorite song. IR employs the violins once again for this song giving a great effect to the song

A great love song with the man inviting his lady love to join him towards an eternal bliss. He finds illustrations in nature and compares it to the attributes of his lady love. What more does our SPB need. He puts in heart and soul into the song and comes out with a great piece. The richness in his voice is so great that it fills our ears with honey. Just listen to the way he renders the lines “endrum neeindri naanillai, naanindri neeyillai, kanmani”. There are lots of such sweet toned rendering throughout the song. His voice expresses a longing feeling matching very well with the mood of the song

Actor Surya (son of Sivakumar), in one of his interviews, citied this song as his favorite song featuring his father.
