Dear Friends,
Speaking of KD, another song coming to mind is the 'pAsa malar' number "pAttondru kEttEn paravasa mAnEn".

Way back in the 60s MSV has spun musical web around this lyric sung by JamunA rANi. That way the movie 'p m' can boast of its variety in lyrical range, music and in the number of voices used in a single movie including that of MSV himself for rendering the title song 'anbu malar aasai malar'.
I do not know how to describe the strategy used for this lyric. After every statement there is a denial like
'nAn adhai pAdavillai'
pAvaiyin mugaththai ppArthAr oruvar nAn adhai pparkkavillai --hoi
'kuil varakkandEn kuralAl azhaikkavillai'
yEdondru kandEn ezhudhidakkandEn
nAn adhai ezhudhavillai'
While this phase moves on along similar patterns,
from 'Adi mudindhadhu AvaNi vandhadhu, the tune takes a swift course but elegantly rejoins pallavi in a typical MSV fusion, backed up by Piano ludes which set the platform for the singer to move on.

I wish to emphasize here that it was a time when song recording was a Herculean feat, having to contend with minimum facility, less perfect acoustics, no technology to recall for cut and paste and innumerable other limitations. Yet MSV has consciously opted for Piano notes to make use of it in a mood-builder mode. How authentic this man has been even 53 years back, despite the demand compelling his presence everywhere.
How stubborn has he been in adhering to quality even if it meant taxing himself mentally and medically?

His wizardry has been erected on uncontaminated dedication.
KD and MSV reveal themselves through this song as creators
par excellence.

Thanks for this opportunity.

Warm regards K.Raman Madurai
