Do you remember the guy who asks Padayappa “Andha Pambu Puthukulla Kai Vittingale, Kadichirathungala”? He started his career as a film-maker and his first movie as a director was Idhu Thodar Kadhai with Mohan and Amala in the lead. Gangai Amaren scored the music. His second movie was Ninaivu Chinnam with Prabhu, Radhika and Murali in the lead. Ninaivu Chinnam was a box-office hit, but his later films didn’t do well. He went on to act and became popular.
I have this theory about Ilaiyaraaja and his lullaby songs. His go-to person for most of his lullaby songs was Susheela. Take a list, and you will know what I am talking about. And of course, his lullaby becoming a pathos song – again an Ilaiyaraaja special.
