As I had mentioned in my “Michael Madana Kamarajan” post, there are quite some songs from Kamal-Ilaiyaraaja combination that didn’t make the final cut. This song is one more from the same list. Kadhal Un Leelaiya is a beautiful melody rendered by Ilaiyaraaja that didn’t make it to the screen due to the length.

Japanil Kalyanaraman was probably the first official sequel in Tamil Cinema, but it didn’t do well at the box-office as expected. It was shot during the Tokyo Expo ’85. Enjoy this melody that blends the melancholic voice of Ilaiyaraaja with guitar strums and drum beats that accompany the song. Don’t miss the counterpoint at the start of the song and the second interlude.
