There are some intriguing filmmakers in Tamil Cinema. R.Ranjith Kumar is one such. He started his career with a slew of low-budget movies Udhayamgirathu, Manjal Nila and Anbe Odi Vaa. None of the films had a good run at the box office. He was out of the scene for few years until he came back as Nambirajan to make Nila (1994) with Jayaram and Vinitha in the lead that had a decent run. His next venture Chandralekha (1995) with Vijay and Vanitha Vijayakumar didn’t do well at the box office. He went back into a hiatus for few more years and came back as MGR Nambi. He started a recording studio and announced movies that didn’t even go to the floors. His last announcement was to make a 100 crore movie with newcomers in 2010.

The interesting part is that Ilaiyaraaja scored music for the majority of his movies and with some scintillating songs. Today’s selection is one such from Manjal Nila.

There are some movies that people don't know that they existed. Manjal Nila is one such and Poonthendral Kaatre Vaa is a scintillating duet rendered by Jayachandran and P Susheela
