"ILamayo ILamai" ILamai Enum Poongatru

Dear SPB Fans,

You must be wondering why i am posting this evergreen melody "Ilamai Enum Poongatru..." from the Tamil Film "Pagalil Oar Iravu"(1977) directed by I V Sasi. Well, since it is an evergreen melody i thought you would all love to hear it once again along with me even though we hear it quite often in Concerts, Radio, TV, CD Player and PC. Our SPB Fan "K Padmanabhan" had initiated this, by providing the lyrics some time back and i eventually fell for it and posted it now. Also, this would be good listening to those who do not possess a record of this song either on CD, Tape or their computer but having a latent longing to hear it again.

As you all may know, Music is by The Maestro "IlayaRaja" and the lyrics by none other than the one and only "Kaviarasu Kannadaasan". What lovely lyrics bringing out clearly the essence of the song with great orchestration by the Maestro employing the violins, flute and guitar to great effect. The loveliness ends there and would get corrupted if the song is viewed on Screen. I was a die hard fan of SriDevi and seeing her in this song really broke my heart (of course many other(s) heart(s) also) and that too with an unknown character. So, let us concentrate on the audio alone and enjoy the lovely moments again. This song even after almost 30 years has stood with its roots grounded & firm and like the "Ilaya Nila" song will never fade away. I now picturise even the Grand children of those who are yet to get married listening to it and enjoying the song. Evergreen indeed, it will be, forever.



ilamaiyenum poongaatru paadiyadhu oar paattu
oru pozhudhu oar aasai sugam sugam adhilae orae sugam
orae veenai orae raagam (2)


thannai marandhu mannil vizhundhu
ilamai malarin meedhu kannai izhandha vandu
dhaega sugaththil kavanam kaattu vazhiyil payanam
gangai nadhikku mannil anaiyaa


angam muzhudhum pongum ilamai
idham padhamaayth thoanra alli anaiththa kaigal
kaetka ninaiththaal marandhaal kaelvi
ezhumun vizhundhaal endha udaloa endha uravoa


mangai inamum mannan inamum
kulam gunamum enna dhegam thudiththaal
kannaedhu koondhal kalaindha kaniyae
konji suvaiththa kiliyae intha nilaidhaan enna vidhiyoa

Hi Dasaradhi
