Tamil cinema loves sentiments, both on-screen and off-screen. One of the famous sentimental aspect is having Ilaiyaraaja Title song of the movie. In fact, the title song of Karagattakaran mentions this aspect and it became an habit. So, I am planning to showcase some of the title songs (not title music) in the next few posts.
Parthiban wanted to have Ilaiyaraaja’s music for his first movie but it didn’t happen for various reasons. But he was stubborn about having Ilaiyaraaja’s music for his second movie and his adoration for the composer is unmatchable. The song provides the premise for the movie – the hero is a conductor in a bus and his life ambition is to find a good wife. It may sound cliched but the movie touches a different nerve when you watch it.
|Song||Yaaradi Naan Thedum|
|Movie||Pondatti Thevai (1990)|
