Song-'Sirpi sedhukkaadha poRsilaiye'
Film: Edhirpaaradhadhu

There is also a jikki version(happier version) for the gorgeous padmini .
'Edhipaaradhadhu' had Sivaji, padmini and SVSahasranamam(?) in the cast. Story and screenplay was by Director Sridhar.
Jayatv recently had a sridhar special in its thenkinam programme where they mentioned that 'edhipaaradhadhu' was the first feature with his screenplay. When he first narrated the story to sivaji , nadigar thilagam was highly impressed with and accepted immediately to act in the movie. Sridhar then completed the dialogues in 3 days time.
The story was a slightly unusual for those days..padmini, who is in love with sivaji, ends up marrying his father sahasranamam.

AM Raja's singing is unusual, but superb in this song. His voice seems to break when he sings 'sirpi' and later 'endhan'. He is simply oozing feelings in this song!
The song is also loosely structured to (probably) reflect spontaneity. He starts

sirpi sedhukkaatha porchilaye
en sithathai nee ariyaayo

but in the very next line sings

endhan.. sithathai nee ariyaayo

The pause at 'endhan' is beautiful.

The anupallavi actually comes after the first interlude. So effectively the song has only 1 charanam. (Romba feelings-la authukku mela paada mudiyala pola!)

Another gem!

Thanks for unearthing this forgotten golden song "sirpi sedhukkaadha". Somehow, I feel "chithiram pesudhadi" , which is also a stunner, got inspired from the former.

Manisekaran, thanks for the details. What are the other films that had pandurangans music?

RR, the happier version(beautifully sung by jikki)also has the same lines. short but sweet song
