Song:thannan thanimaiyile
Film: School Master
Singer: PSuseela
Lyrics: Kannadasan
Music: MSV

There are certain songs you can never stop listening to. Even if you stop listening , the song keeps playing in the back of your mind for a while. This is such a song.
It is a simple song but its sheer simplicity wins you over.
-The song is for Sowkar janaki who consoles her husband played by Gemini Ganesan after he feels sad on his retirement.
Kannadasans lines, as ever, magnificient.
But the real winner is Susheelas voice. She gives the apt gambeeram in the pallavi and charanam. The slight shivering she brings in her voice at the end is just brilliant.
'School Master' had Gemini, sowkar, sivakumar,kumari padmini and nadigar thilagam in a guest role. Other noteworthy song in the film is 'poongodiye poongodiye'
This film was made in telugu, kannada and Hindi. Sivaji ganesan played the guest role in hindi version too(I think this was is only hindi film).
-The recent bollywood blockbuster 'baaghbaan'(bachan, hemamalini) was heavily inspired from this film

-This song reminds me 'naan aatchi seidhu varum'(aadhiparasakthi).Are they based on same raaga?

What a song!
What powerful emotions it emits!
As a kid, I remember watching this movie and silently shedding tears during this song. Spectacular performance by Gemini Ganesan and Sowcar Janaki.

Even today, when I listen to the song, it brings on a feeling of melancholy - with thoughts of my future when I retire....
This song rates high in my "feelings of abandonment" songs including stunners like Un kannil neer vazhinthaal and Yaarai nambi naan piranthen.

Talking of inspiration this is the song that Deva copied to produce the hit song Konja naal poru thalaivaa!

Thanks RR

Nov nice to see your post.

Ramki, RR: excellent song in Ananda Bhairavi. Other notable old songs are:
1) Poi Vaa Magale (Karnan)
2) Nal Vaazhvy naam Vaazha (Veettukku Veedu)
3) Madurai Meenakshi Manikaratthil (Chellakkili????)
The last one is another MSV-PS gem but I cannot recall the movie name for sure. It does seem like PS's voice is made for this raaga!!

RRA 'madhurai meenakshi manikarathil' is from chellakiLi. I think it was for sripriya

The lines "iduvum unakkE meeankshi, idhuvA nee seiyum arasatchi..." then 2 visumbal.. PS brought that emotion of pAsa malar song even in this song after 20+ years. A great artist.
