Legends' Birthday Special!

LEGENDS' BIRTHDAY SPECIAL!

By Prathap

Three of the legends of Tamil cinema, Mani Ratnam, SPB and Isaignani Ilayaraja, celebrated their birthdays this week. While their contributions to our movies are immensely commendable, we look back at a few of their hit songs that brought them together, just as the monsoon is showing little signs of embracing Tamil Nadu bringing down the soaring mercury levels.
 
Mouna Ragam - While all the songs in this movie are equally popular, Nilaave Vaa, Panivizhum Iravu and Mandram Vandha stand out for their rendering as well as their composition.
 
Thalapathi - An epic movie to have come out of the Mani Ratnam stable, the movie's Raakamma Kaiyathattu, Sundari Kannal, Kaattukuyilu songs are wildly popular even now.
 
Idhaya Kovil - If there is one highlight of this movie, that would have to be Ilayaraja's music and SPB's rendering of Naan Paadum Mouna Raagam.
 
Idhayathai Thirudathey - Despite being a dubbed film, the movie's Oh Priyaa Priyaa was a superhit and still evokes nostalgia.
