Seethalu Singaram & Poondhenil Kalandhu

Dear SPB Fans,

Presenting to you now, bi-lingual versions of a song.

The details of the Telugu Version is as follows :

Song : Seethalu Singaram ...
Film : Seethamalakshmi (1979)
Music : K V Mahadevan
Singers : PS & SPB
Lyrics : Veturi
Director : K Viswanath
Actors : ChandraMohan & Talluri Rameswari

Both PS & SPB have rendered this song enthusiastically exchanging verses with each other. One of the good numbers in Telugu. The movie was also very good and i remember seeing it at Subham Theatre, Chennai in its year of release. The heroine Rameswari played the role beautifully with the expressive eyes conveying the emotions enchantingly.

Seethalu Singaram (Telugu)



The details of the Tamil Version is as follows :

Song : Poondhenil Kalandhu ...
Film : Eni Padigal (1979)
Music : K V Mahadevan
Singers : SPB
Lyrics : Kannadhaasan

Director : K Viswanath
Actors : Sivakumar & Shobha


Unlike the Telugu version, the Tamil film had a solo version of the song also. I have included the solo because of our SPB's beautiful improvisations in this song. This song was discussed already in the English blog by our "Prodigy Bala". He had written excellent comments for this song and i am just capturing them here in my own words. The song starts off in the "honey-filled" voice of our SPB. Just listen to the phrases "en madiyil thuLLi vizhuvaaL" & "adhil enakkum oru mayakkam". While rendering the word "thuLLI" (jumping in ecstasy) , he literally performs the word by modulating his voice to bring in a "thuLLal" effect. Likewise for the word "mayakkam" (intoxication), he renders it in an intoxicating manner lending beauty. This film had a very subtle & great performance by the award winning actress Shobha. It was indeed a great loss to the Tamil Film Industry when her life met a tragic end in the early 80s.
