Innum Yennai Yenna Seyya Pogirai

As i have said many a time in this blog, Illayaraja is and was will always be miles ahead of any composer (Save perhaps, the divine Carnatic trinity). Another of this gems which i recently heard was this. Innum Yennai Yenna Seyya Pogirai from the movie Singaravelan. Click here to listen to that song. In what was a comedy movie, Raja unleashes out a brilliant song with some stunning flute pieces and violins set in the ragam Gambeera Nattai. In fact, if you listen to the song closely during the pallavi, you can almost see that the flute follows the singers.
And needless to say, SPB and Janaki sing out the song effortlessly. In all, a stunning song once again from the Genius !

    ALthough the story and song lyrics were total crap in Singaravelan, the orchestration of the songs is a marvel in itself
