A gem from the ’70s

Suddenly remembered this song in the morning. Its been stuck in my head since.

An absolutely beautiful composition by Illaiyaraja, great lyrcis by Valee and sung by the evergreen SPB, from the movie Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu. A great movie too, starring Kamal Haasan and Rajni. Definitely among their best performances. The last scene as Rajni drives off in his car is very poignant.

    i totally agree..these are his gem songs…already have an never erasable place in my ipod and my heart..above all that his humility is what undoubtedly touches your heart…cheers to him.. 🙂

  3. 75-85 almost everything that was produced was a gem…where are the plots in the movies produced these days…want to go back in time to watch these films in theater or wait for the radio to play the favourite song…its 2010…thank you YouTube…and thanks to you for reminding us about these movies…
