To say that MGR songs are melodious is like Gold is precious( ardent MSV fans would have discussed this aspect 1000 times over the last decade ) ….. . It goes without saying , most of Makkal thilagam’s evergreen hits were composed either by the magnificient MSV – TKR duo or MSV alone ( KVM was a exception for Devar Films and Shankar Ganesh briefly )

I could see a different composition…. Rather a surprise gift by the duo for


A TMS solo….He breathed like MGR for this song ! A thunderous start ....drums and bangoos roaring ……followed by the duo’s customary group violin prelude before the Pallavi and there will be a small PAUSE….before TMS takes off with Oru pennai paarthu….

Another beauty is…the drums/ bangoos will resume again ( rather will wait until TMS completes Oru pennai paarthu nilavai paarthen )…..

Sheer delight and class BGM when TMS sings…aval illaamal naan illai ( a gentle drum beat ..tak tak tak with bangoos again on the background ) naan ilaamal aval illai….. and the pallavi ends with lalalalalalalalalalalalaaaaa…….( the lalala was needed to fill the gap I presume )

Probably the duo were told that MGR and Sarojadevi will be dancing inbetween …which made them come out with splendid violin interludes before charanam…..and suddenly with a accordion …a surprise package !!! before violin again ! all in a flash !! before the resumption of…. Kodi minnal oru paarvai maano meeno endrirundhen ..kuyil osai pol oru vaarthai ..kuzalo yaazo endrirundhen …..

Earlier we had extensive sharing on thoughts on the speciality of MSV TKR music and their compositon style ESPECIALLY IMPROVISING MELODY WHEN A CHARANAM GETS REPEATED ….

Here also they didn’t miss when TMS sings …NENJODU YENNAI SERTHAAI THEEYODU PANJAI SERTHAAI …and again Nenjoooooodu with a subtle change ! vow terrific improvisation !!

Indru kaadhal ekkam thandhaal sendraal naalai enseivaalo…… TMS appadiyay swaram irangi paaduvaar…..fantastic voice modulation

Again , there will be a pause …..

Look at the impact of what even a silence can do to a song !

Oru varutham enakku….. the same interludes will get repeated for the second charanam as well ….why ?? They could have easily created another interlude …these are unsolved mysteries of TFM …or probably MGR liked the first interlude so much that he preferred using the same

The song doesn’t end so easily…..the duo will give a fine finishing touch with tremendous flow of drums and bangoos again ( which was never heard in a radio )

MGR and Sarojadevi…..ketka vendumaa….MGR ALWAYS CHEERFUL…when he sings a love song …and this song was no exception…..while Saro will be the silent spectator just reacting to MGR’s tantrums….

Makkal thilagam….in his own inimitable customary fashion…Thanudaya kayyaiyum kaalayum nanraaga veesi veesi nadippaaar ! with an attractive dressing ( unlike the palich palich yellow or red or blue which he wears sometimes )

Makkal thilagam will look young and charming…..Saroja devi as well…..

The dance movements are of typical MGR ….few steps forward and few backward…with hand joining with Heroene ( this type of MGR dance movements, we must have seen umpteen times ! )… I think MGR never took any major risk in dancing except for Aadaludan paadalai kettu wherein he had to dance like a pathan with a dance expert like L.Vijayalakshmi ! but he did remarkably well…..there will be a mini twist dance also in this song oru pennai paarthu !

It’s a simple indoor song but the impact the magnificient duo created through the thunderous flow of drums and bangoos made this SOMETHING SPECIAL AND EVERLASTING….

Ofcourse, Vanna kilee sonna mozee is another variety … a song known for rhythm

Andha moondrezuthil yen moochirukkum…is a 100% MGR kolgai parrappu paadal…..
