Jotheyali, Jothe Jotheyali - Geetha (Kannada)

Hi SPB Fans,
Today I am posting a kannada song "Jotheyali, jothe jotheyali " from the movie "Geetha"(1980) composed by Ilayaraja.
This film was released in the late 80's starring Shankar Nag and Akshata Rao. This movie was the first original story of its kind. Geetha is the name of the main lead, who happens to
fall in love with a singer (Shankar Nag). After initial hiccups the two finally look for each other
only to know that Geetha has a blood cancer. This song is the heart throbing song of young couples.

SPB and Janaki's voices also play a very good part.
SPB Has sang 2 great songs in the same movie. Kelade Nimageega (kannada version of "Devadai Ilam Devi" from "Ayiram Nilave vaa" in Tamil) & Nanna Jeeva Neenu is my alltime favourite song in Kannada.

Movie Name: Geetha
Singer: Balasubramanyam S P, Janaki S
Music Director: Ilayaraja
Lyrics: Udayashankar

Lyric for the song-
Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu
jothe jotheyali iruvenu endhu endhu
entha mathadidhe nala nee
entha mathadidhe nanna manisina bhavane neene heLidhe
Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu

Preethiyendharenu endhu eegha arithenu
savinudiyali thanu araLithu
saviganasali mana kunniyithu
olavina ee mathige
karedhiha ee notake
koduve ninage bha preethi kaNika
Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu

Modadhali jodiyagi theli naliyuva
haraduva aragiLigaLa mathadisi mudhaduva
khamana billeruva
jarutha naavaaduva
hagalu iruLu ondhagi haduva
Jotheyali jothe jotheyali iruvenu heege endhu
hosa harushava tharuvenu endhu endhu
entha mathadidhe indhu nee
entha mathadidhe nanna manisina bhavane neene hellidhe
Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu

Small correction, Movie 'geetha' was released in 1980. But *ing Shankar Nag and Akshata RaO. Not Anantha Nag.

Dear Vikas,
A good melody.
In fact i had posted the Tamil version of this song "Vizhiyile Mani Vizhiyil" from "Nooravadhu Naal" in our blog on 3rd of this month. At that time i was not aware that it had a Kannada predecessor. So, our ILayaraja had used the Kannada tune as it is for a Tamil song. Interesting. Thanks for the posting
