The 60's styled name and one "Gokulakrishna" as director made me think that the movie maragatha veeNai should have been a Telugu dubbing Embarassed

It is a Suresh-Revathy film, possibly a musicial (with this many songs listed). After Plum informed me of the hit numbers, I played them on youtube. While the songs are still not very familiar to me (somehow I wasn't privileged to listen to them upon arrival), they're not dubbing songs or anything like that Smile

Typical mid-80's numbers with SJ domination. So, three of those songs that got voted as hits are as below:

#822 maragatha veeNai isaikkum rAgam (SJ-KJY duet, maragatha veeNai)
Sweet duet, somewhat in the 70's MSV mold Embarassed

#823 kaNNA vA kadhai solla vA (SJ solo, maragatha veeNai)
Excellent solo, #IR_Waltz with SJ doing full justice! I can see how this should have got featured in buses in south TN

#824 oru poovanakkuyil (SJ with chorus, maragatha veeNai)
Another #IR_Waltz with faster tempo, possibly the demand of distributors those days after the popular AN pAvam - to have some kuRumbu song for Revathy!

I don't see any need for "poll" for the next few movies. Let me simply add them here as those are well-known, evergreen hits (regardless of TN or Kerala).

No need to say that the following songs are all SUPER HITS :

#825 kuzhaloodhum kaNNanukku (KSC solo, mella thiRandhadhu kadhavu)
As informed by MSV himself, this was both melody & orch by IR (while some other songs had MSV melody and IR only did orch). patti-thotti-citi hit. This song was so popular in Kerala too and I still recall a coworker from Alappuzha singing that "வந்தாச்சு சித்திரை தான் போயாச்சு நித்திரை தான்" with so much of enjoyment!

#826 thEdum kaN pArvai thavukka thudikka (SJ-SPB duet, mella thiRandhadhu kadhavu)
Exotic arrangements and some great neLivu suLivu in the melody, fantastic song!

#827 sakkara kattikku chiththira kuttikku (SPS/KSC/BSS group song, mella thiRandhadhu kadhavu)
I doubt if there was any MSV-consultancy for this song, as IR had done 100's like this...possibly just his consent for comical abuse of வாராய் என் தோழி வாராயோ Embarassed

#828 ooru sanam thoongiruchchu (SJ solo, mella thiRandhadhu kadhavu)
Fantastic evergreen number! I wonder this song was "the-other-way-around" song, with IR's melody and MSV orch. Either way, this is the song that shouts aloud about the "combo" in a true sense!

#829 vA veNNilA (SJ-SPB duet, also SJ solo, mella thiRandhadhu kadhavu)
Two versions, both had enough air time those days and later! This is a known case of "almost-reuse" of an older MSV melody.

#830 dhil dhil dhil dhil manadhil (PS-SPB duet, mella thiRandhadhu kadhavu)
How can they not have PS in a MSV-IR album? Thus went this song to her perhaps (and she struggled to deliver IMHO). #IR_Waltz (showcased as Jazz Waltz by music specialists)! Overall, what an album this one is! (Per GA, ARR was playing keyboard for this album)

#831 manRam vandha thenRalukku (SPB solo, mouna rAgam)
Original of the recent-times Hindi hit "cheeni kum hai" Wink The song and the whole album is ever-green!

#832 nilAvE vA (SPB solo, mouna rAgam)
It is interesting that SPB got both 'pAvam' solos in this album while SJ got both thuLLal ones Wink The most balanced TFM album ever I would say (2+2+1 duet for this pair)

#833 pani vizhum iravu (SJ-SPB duet, mouna rAgam)
Terrific rhythm concoction for the song - though the same got repeated for both pallavi and saraNam. Often IR switches to another pattern for the saraNam but retained it in this song (possibly liked it that way). Very trendy and evergree too!

#834 chinnachchinna vaNNakkuyil (SJ with chorus, mouna rAgam)
One of her all-time best numbers, per my reckoning. What a lovely song!

#835 OhO mEgham vandhadhO (SJ with chorus, mouna rAgam)
Fantastic rain song and there were few more that followed this in other movies later Smile

As there'll be no poll / discussion needed for the hits of another hit movie, let's add them too - before we start polling for the subsequent one:

#836 summA thodavum mAttom (Two versions, MV-SPB duet, SJ with chorus, mudhal vasantham)
Both the male duet and the female versions were big hits, often played on public address systems, teakkadais, buses etc. Possibly the biggest hit album among any of the Manivannan movies (with the exception of iLamaikkAlangal, where he wasn't the director when the album came out)

#837 mAnAdakkodi poovAdum oru sOlai (SJ solo, mudhal vasantham)
Superb SJ song, sounds a little bit like IR's late-70's songs but popular nevertheless

#838 ponni nadhi veLLam inRu (SPB solo, mudhal vasantham)
Possibly a "bought-out" song from some non-starter 70's project. Some even wondered if this was indeed by IR Smile

#839 ARu adhu Azham illa (IR solo, also UR solo, mudhal vasantham)
Phenomenal hit - popular to this day. (Even the female version was quite popular, often heard on buses but nothing compared to the IR solo)

I don't think the other IR song (poonguyilum pAdudhu) did have that much reception, so leaving that out.

Let me now add a poll for the next movie, nee thAnA andhakkuyil - that had the 'poojaikkEththa poovidhu' song (supposedly KSC's first in TFM)

yen jeevan pAduthu (2 songs) KJY solo and SJ solo
kaNNAna kaNNA unnai yenna solli thAlatta (2 songs) K.J.Yesudas / Sangeetha duet and KSC solo
mAnang karukkuthu mazhai vara pAkkuthu Malaysia Vasudevan / Uma Ramanan
pArthA ithu pachchai kiLi Malaysia Vasudevan / Saibab / Chorus
poojaikERRa poovithu Gangai Amaran / K.S.Chithra [Debut]
kOttaiyilE kuyilirukku ilaiyaRaaja

So, there had been 4 hit songs from that "annakkiLi R Selvaraj" movie nee dhAnA andhakkuyil, couple of them super hits!

#840 en jeevan pAdudhu unnaiththAn thEdudhu (KJY and SJ solo versions, nee dhAnA andhakkuyil)
KJY version was a super hit, heard 100's of times on buses and it was an emotional rollercoaster song! Set in 7/8 with udukkai & all, it's captivating!

#841 kaNNAna kaNNA unnai enna solliththAlAtta (KSC solo and a KJY / Sangeetha duet, nee dhAnA andhakkuyil)
The KSC solo was a hit and I've heard many times on buses as well!

#842 mAnam karukkudhu mazhai varappAkkudhu (UR/MV duet, nee dhAnA andhakkuyil)
That 'vENam mAmA - yammA yammAmmA' portion of UR was very popular - another bus-famous song Smile

#843 poojaikkEththa poovidhu (KSC-GA duet, nee dhAnA andhakkuyil)
The most famous "first recorded TFM song" of KSC, even though many other songs got released prior Smile

Let us now run a poll for the next album, pAlaivana rOjakkaL - podhu udaimai song is known to me but others of this album are not very familiar Embarassed

kAdhal yenbathu pothu udamai ilaiyaRaaja
thoRanthu vaikkiRa manasu muzhukka Vani Jayaram
seer vanthathu S.P.Sailaja / Chorus
nenaichathellAm ilaiyaRaaja
yentha vazhithAn ponAlum [Pathos] [Bit] ilaiyaRaaja

I guess kAdhal enbadhu was the only hit song from pAlaivana rOjAkkaL - interestingly, the movie was a hit (remake of a Malayalam hit by Manivannan).

Rare case of just one song hit from a hit movie in IR's career Smile

#844 kAdhal enbadhu podhu udaimai (IR solo, pAlaivana rOjAkkaL)
I've heard this song a few times on buses during TN trips. This song seems to be fairly popular on youtube too Smile

Next poll is for the Manobala movie 'pAru pAru pattaNam pAru' (that had the sweet yAr thoorigai thandha Oviyam & thenRal varum songs)

yE jOsiyam solgiREn [kElappa kumba rAsiyil] [Title Song] ilaiyaRaaja
yAr thoorigai thantha Oviyam [Duet] S.P.Balasubramaniam / Uma Ramanan
thendRal varum yennai aNaikkum S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
nEranthAn Aguthu vA mAmA Malaysia Vasudevan / Vani Jayaram
pAvai oru mEdai Adi pazhagu Malaysia Vasudevan / B.S.Sasireka / Dheeban Chakaravarthy
thiravAi nee kaNNE thiravAi nee S.P.Balasubramaniam / Chorus

Based on the feedback and my own "trips-based" experience, we'll get those two duets from the Manobala movie included now Smile

#845 yAr thoorigai thandha Oviyam (UR-SPB duet, pAru pAru pattaNam pAru)
Very enjoyable duet and I've written about this song on the IR-SPB thread in the hub a few years back as well!

#846 thenRal varum ennaiththazhuva (SJ-SPB duet, pAru pAru pattaNam pAru)
Another sweet duet from the album that played more times in recent years in my car (than probably the # of times I've heard on buses those days)

I don't think we need a poll for the next movie, which was popular in both TN & Kerala (directed by Fazil) with three sweet hits.

#847 oru kiLiyin thanimaiyilE (KSC-KJY duet, also a KSC solo, poovizhi vAsalilE)
Lovely saraNam portions and terrific orch. - the song was heard everywhere in the Cbe-Pollachi area those days and I guess it was likewise popular elsewhere in TN!

#848 chinna chinna rOjAppoovE (KJY solo, poovizhi vAsalilE)
What a lovely song! Evergreen hit!

#849 pAttu ingE rA pA pA (SPS / MV duet with chorus, poovizhi vAsalilE)
Terrific bass score and fantastic interludes / rhythm arrangements - it was reasonably popular but not to the extent of the other two IMHO

Next album too needs no poll as all songs were superhits!

#850 EdhEdhO eNNam vaLarththEn (KSC solo, punnagai mannan)
Even before the release of the movie, this song was popular - to the extent that Palakkad theaters played it during intervals (during Malayalam movies, can you imagine!)

#851 enna saththam indha nEram (SPB solo, punnagai mannan)
Popular to this day and I've heard this song involuntarily in totally unexpected places - such as a music store in Aluva or a tea shop in Chalakkudy Laughing

#852 kavidhai kELungaL (VJ-PJ duet, punnagai mannan)
So-called first song that got recorded with "computer music" in TFM and such reporting by magazines made this song popular even before it was heard by anyone Laughing

#853 one two three (Francis Lazarus solo, punnagai mannan)
English song but a hit as the whole cassette - including the famous theme music - had been played in every bus in TN those days

#854 vAn mEgam pooppoovAy thoovum (KSC solo, punnagai mannan)
Another Revathy rain song after the mouna rAgam number, supposedly switched to manual playing of drums by Sivamani after ARR struggled to get the sequencer running with correct tempo

#855 kAlam kAlamAga vAzhum kAdhalukku nAngaL arppaNam (KSC-SPB duet, punnagai mannan)
Solo violin special, superb #IR_Waltz and popular to this day. (kodumai on screen)

#856 singaLaththu chinnakkuyilE (KSC-SPB duet, punnagai mannan)
Very sweet melody and lovely ludes! The song was played everywhere in TN, despite having the 'singaLaththu' word - showing the well-known magnanimity of Thamizh people (with Eezham struggle in progress)

#857 mAmAvukku kudummA kudummA (MV solo, punnagai mannan)
Another fast-rhythm song which is popular to this day!

Overall, what an album that was! For a Kamal - KB movie!

Next is an album unknown to me (possibly Telugu dubbing) - rAtchashan...Let me ask help from those who lived in TN :

malli malli idhu jAthi malli S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra
kiLiyE iLangkiLiyE kani uNNa vA S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra
hEy naughty love boy S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra
machchAn machchAn vanthAn vanthAn S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra
nee muththam thanthAl inikkum S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra

Since not many cared for that dubbed movie, let me take it out and place another in the poll.

This one is a BM album with at least 2 certified hits that I know of Smile As I'm not sure about the fate of the other two songs inside TN, hosting a poll for forumers / twitters to confirm :

rettai vAl kuruvi (I think even the movie was a hit, I know kaNNan vandhu & rAjA rAja chOzhan are evergreen hits but what about the other two?)

suthandhirathai vAngiputtOm P.Jayachandran / K.S.Chithra / S.N.Surendar / Anuradha / Saibaba / Chorus
thaththedutha muthu piLLai yArO P.Susheela / K.S.Chithra
rAja rAja Sozhan nAn K.J.Yesudas
kaNNan vanthu pAdugiRAn S.Janaki

Looks like the other two songs didn't make much impact inside TN. So, let's catalog the two super hit songs and move on Smile

#858 rAja rAja chOzhan nAn (KJY solo, rettai vAl kuruvi)
Very famous number and popular to this day!

#859 kaNNan vandhu pAdukinRAn kAlamellAm (SJ solo, rettai vAl kuruvi)
What a sweet song! A drums delight - evergreen hit!

The next album seems to be a Telugu dubbed one - salangaiyil oru sangeetham, Vamsy...not sure if TN people made the album a hit...Let us poll!

yAr azhaithathu kanavu rANiyA S.P.Balasubramaniam
yArOdu yAro nee yentha oorO S.P.Balasubramaniam
manadhilE orE koNdAttam ilaiyaRaaja / S.Janaki
kanavA idhu uNmaiyA S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
salangaiyil oru sangeetham [nadarAjan kudi koNda kalaiyallavA] S.P.Balasubramaniam
Ah vEdhanai [un vEdhanai oru AlAbanai] Rajkumar Bharathy / S.Janaki

BTW, Anbu Sir e-mailed me that rAkshashan was indeed the Thamizh dubbing of a Chiranjeevi Telugu movie called rAkshasudu and shared the vinyl pics of both original and dubbing.

I'll be posting those sleeve pics in the appropriate threads!
