AnbuLLa Rajinikanth -- "ThEn poovE poovE Vaa..."




Dear “Fans of our Legend”,

I would like to present to you all one more melody from the “IR-SPB-SJ” combo.

Song : ThEn poovE poovE vaa ….
Film : AnbuLLa Rajinikanth (1984)
Music : ILayaRaja
Singers : SPB & SJ
Actors : Rajinikanth, Ambika, Rajkumar, Meena (as a child artiste)

This song is featured on Rajkumar-Ambika singing a love duet and is a flowing melody indeed, with great singing by our SPB & SJ. This song is full of delicate improvisations by both, with our SPB taking the lead. He delivers his characteristic laugh as well, at few places. The ending of each phrase sung by him has his unique stamp especially “naanum kamban dhaan konjum bOdhu” (in the first charanam) the way he renders “bOdhu” stretching it charmingly and delicately & also “unai ninaithEn” towards the end of the song. One information I found confusing about this song is that in many websites the male singer is mentioned as “Krishnachander” (???!!!) (maybe, he would have sung the track and it got credited to him) and in some sites as SPB, when it is quite clear and known that it is the one & only SPB with his clear stamp on it.

The Maestro has provided lively orchestration with guitar & flute taking the lead initially then followed by the violins. The interludes too have abundance of sounds from these instruments.

Now about the film which has the name of the Superstar in it. The primary characters in this film are Meena, as a child living in an orphanage and Ambika, working there who later comes to know that Meena is her own child born out of the relationship with her lover Rajkumar. The Superstar plays a cameo role and appears as a real life character, that of actor Rajini. Meena is featured as an adamant child who does not mingle with other children & elders in the orphanage and always maintains a distance from them. Actor Rajinikanth happens to visit the orphanage on one occasion and even then she shys away from him and does not care about him. However, later she sees one of his films on TV (I think it must be Annai Oar Aalayam where he is seen with an elephant) and this impresses her a lot and for the first time in her life opens out and writes to him as “Rajini Uncle” and expresses desire to meet him. This is a start off of a special relationship between the two and hence the title “AnbuLLa Rajinikanth”. This role of Rajini would have endeared him to the children as well, earlier having attracted the adults of TamilNadu. Meena had grown leaps and bounds since then finally ending up pairing with the Superstar himself in a couple of films later. A good & decent movie.

This film had two other songs – one by Yesudas and the other by Latha Rajinikanth (I think) which were great.

Now, listen to the song of the discussion.


Lyrics :

ThEn poovE poovE vaa...thendral thEda

Oh..konjum inbam pOl vEru yEdhu..

Dasaradhi sir..

Its a Great Duet by a Great Duo, My SPB and My Darling Jaanuma..The initial Touch By Raaja needs no extra Eulogical words, instead just close our eyes and so on..Balu and Janu, hmm I dont know What to Say,..

S Sir, Actually the Track was by Krishnachandhar, then sung by SPB. Interstingly, the song "Poovaadai Kaatru" from Gopurangal Saaivadhilai was supposed by SPB, but Raaja satisfied with the track sung by Krishnachandar, and he sang that song also very well along with my Darling, Needs to Say anything about Jaanu..ohoo

Hi Dasaradhi
Theyn Poovey poovey is a b'ful song of TRIO legends ...Esspecially the scale , mixing , composition , orchaestration , Renderation etc etc nothing can be found any fault with this song ...Esspecially i like that charanam " naanum kamban dhaan konjum bOdhu
Oh..konjum inbam pOl vEru yEdhu..
dhEva dhEvi..yennOdu dhaan
" ...We can die this type of songs ... Still I'm proud to say that " Maestro is THE ONLY COMPOSER " and " PADUM NILA is THE ONLY SINGER " ...
It's surprise that Poovaadi kaatru was suppose to be sung by Our Jumbo ... B'se that too one of my favourite in Maestro's composition , i think Our Thalaivar can sing this in the next version " SPB n Paadatha Paadalgal " ...Thanks for posting good songs always ...
Luv and Live with Music
