adadA...the site DID HAVE puthiya vArppukAL, BR's fourth silver jubilee film Embarassed

Just that they spelt it differently (putiya) and I didn't notice it.

Posting it now Smile The movie that introduced KBR as a hero! He was doing only insignificant (just one or two scenes kind of) roles in the previous three movies of BR. He was also the story-dialog writer of some of those.

Also, the movie was the launch pad of the 'Ek dujE kE liyE' ladki...Rathi...

Recently, during the 'nenjam thotta rAsA' series on visay TV, director Vasanth remarked that 'thamthana namthana thALam varum' was the song that made him openly manifest his conversion from a HCMSVF to an IRF Smile

What a lovely song! I remember reading those days that veeNai Gayathri used to play regularly for IR's songs and she probably did the sweet veeNai sounds in this number...

Just to showcase that how even totally forgotten (not that these even got registered in the first place, chummA oru idhukku, should be called "unknown") movies suddenly light up our day because of some unforgettable IR songs...

sonnadhu nee dhAnA (ippadi oru padam vandhadho, pOnadhO romba silarukkE theriya vAippu irukku...OTOH, the 'sonnadhu nee dhAnA' song sung by PS is an evergreen classic!).

Now, this movie has a PJ number - even the very mention of 'veLLi nilAvinilE thamizh veeNai vandhadhu, adhu pAdum rAgam nee rAjA' makes me sit up and suddenly brightens my day!

Though the disk had more than one song, thiraippAdal had chosen to host only that number - simply NOT TO BE MISSED by anyone interested in IR's music & PJ's voice :

Now, for documentation purposes, the disk covers here:

'rOsAppoo ravikkaikkAri' was advertised to be Sivakumar's 100th movie (poor fellow, even in that movie, there was no heroics possible for him...only the role of a loser...look how his kid Karthi is a "mass-hero" from day one Laughing)

IR gave a wonderful score for his first hero...'uchchi vahindheduththu' will not easily leave the minds of TN-ers who happened to live during the arrival of the song, until their lives end!

Actually, this number could easily challenge if there is another song so brilliantly fresh yet rooted in the maN & so emotional in TFM...

plum's favourite Unni Mary is featured in the cover, Deepa the 'rOsappoo ravikkaikkAri' Smile

Looking at the back cover that RR's LP record, me wonders whether this was the biggest featured IR-pic on disk until that time Smile

Nice one and there's some 75% match to today's Karthik Raja Smile

ok, coming to the end of current run of year 1979...one last album cover (and the last one for today...it'll be a while before I post more, as holidays are typically busier than work days Laughing )

Movie that not only features in my "all-time-top-10-in-TF" but also in a similar list of many others (including such celebrities as Mani Ratnam)...

Yes, Mahendran's uthirippookkaL!

With that terrific 'azhagiya kaNNE' by kavingar & SJ!

Enjoy the covers - even those were designed different it appears :

Another interesting thing about this disk cover is it displays 45 RPM predominantly. Still, it had 3 songs per each side. That means, it was not the regular 45 RPM compact sized record but should have been of the regular 33 RPM disk size (i.e. the LP record size but recorded at a faster RPM).

That's quite interesting...

are these standard 140g pressings? should have cost a bomb in those days.

Starting those available for the illustrious year 1980...

Devar films 'anbukku nAn adimai'.

Naturally, the LP cover has presence of jAnvar(s)...dog & ram, apart from humans - Rajini & Rathi.

Back cover also has the ram & Rathi.

rAsA pic is squeezed between producer, director & lyricists...

Three songs were quite popular (kAththOdu poo orasa, kAttiloru singakkuttiyAm & onROdu onRAnOm anbOdu). I'm surprised that there's a fourth song (pazhuththa pazham, PS solo) and I don't even remember hearing this once before Shocked

All four songs are at thiraippAdal:

Second (and possibly the last) movie by director Rudraiyah...(whose first was avaL appadiththAn, a wonder)

grAmaththu aththiyAyam!

rAsA blessed him with four gems - Aththu mEttula, oodhakkAththu veesaiyilE, vAdAtha rOsAppoo, poovE idhu poojaikkAlamE (from the vinyl cover, all got penned by GA)!

Nice front cover...

Kamal - Sridevi - I V Sasi...

One of the all-time-big-commercial-albums of IR...guru

The movie title cards showed just SPB & SJ as singers (like a later arrival payaNangaL mudivadhillai).

I've earlier mentioned about the "incapability to hold more than 4 songs in a disk" problem in the 'anything about IR in the net' thread, citing guru as the example. I'm re-presenting the cover pics here, just for documentation purposes Smile

The album had 6 sweet numbers :

-pEraich chollavA? adhu nyAyam AgumA?
-paRandhAlum vida mAttEn
-endhan kaNNil EzhulagangaL vArAi kaNNA vA
-nAn vaNangukiREn
-AdungaL pAdungaL piLLaippon vaNdukaL
-mAmanukkup paramakkudi (Kamal's ooru name plugged in here)

This cover pic from musicalaya website has only four out of those six songs...

Can't believe this is my 600th post in this new forum Shocked

It appears to me like we started only a few days back... regardless of when we began, I was definitely posting at a maddening pace. Well, the holidays cooled it down a bit and the pace is picking up again Laughing

OK, while I don't have enough time to invest for a post for the IR-PS thread, at the minimum let me try to add an interesting album pic for this small landmark Smile

Johny!

Interestingly, the LP cover has nenjathaik kiLLAthE, as a bonus! It also has something called a "chasing track", an instrumental - though the film's name is not mentioned for this track, it can't be from NK...must be from Johny. If someone has the actual disk, please let us know what BGM is that.

So, one stone two mangoes...

Another interesting thing about this cover is crediting Jency for the 'oru iniya manadhu isaiyai aNaiththuch chellum' song. I've always thought that the track was by Sujatha. (Or at least there were two versions, one by Jency and another by Sujatha). This album cover does not show any Sujatha version. SJ'kku one, SPS'kku one but Jency'kku mattum two songsA? idikkudhu rAsA sArE!

I gave a more careful listen to the song from thiraippAdal just now and it does sound like Jency now Embarassed (especially the ra / Ra are agmark Jency)
(thiraippAdal maintains Sujatha, however)...

(note - it's "snow reeta" and not "seno rita" Laughing )

Pics are here:



Both movies were directed by Mahendran in the same year (as most of us know) and were both commercial and critical successes! Excellently supported by rAsA!

'nenjathaikkiLLAthE' also won NA for Ashok Kumar for oLippadhivu I think...in addition, the movie was a silver jubilee runner / trend setter etc...

Johny couldn't be called a trend-setter at that time and wasn't even thought about as a mega hit those days, i.e. in comparison to the other adi-dhadi movies of him during the same time period, (e.g. murattukkALai / billA etc)...some "style-fans" were even upset those days with his different authoring of the dual roles, despite Rajini being very stylish but not gimmicky. However, the movie won over many in subsequent years and can now be considered to attaining classic status in the minds of many. Sridevi - sollavE vENAm, one of her career best roles!

(oru small personal note - I didn't watch Johny when arrived. It was in 1983 June that I watched the movie, when my 3rd sem exams were on...In the middle of sem exams, I watched the movie both 6 PM & 10 PM shows in college audi on a Saturday Shocked No wonder that was my poor-most performance in any exams Embarassed First time I got 59 in a paper and the only case of hitting below 70 I think! pinna enna, moththamE oru semesterla padikkaRadhu 15 days only for all 6 papers, adhulayum oru nAL pOchchu Laughing )

nanRi, V_Sji!

It's exactly the BGM what I expected to be...However, I don't think the whole length of this track is together in the movie, it comes in bits and pieces I think...possibly put together as a track...

#Even all the mp3 version of Senorita calls it Snow Rita, now I know what the origin is.

#Uravenum is by Gangai Amaran. Pleasantly surprised. Big fan of the pallavi/anupallavi lines

Another I V Sasi movie from 1980 - kALi...it seems he was quite busy both in MF & TF during this time period.

There're two links in the musicalaya site for this movie...but one of the covers don't even list any songs. They have pictures of Rajini & Seema chEchi (riding a motorcycle) ; here are those two pictures :



However, the second link has the cover with all the songs listed. (We're quite familiar with this cover, from my old post in the "anything found in the net about IR" thread. It has both kALi & guru movie songs included...two IV Sasi movies, one with Kamal and another with Rajini ; it has the funny "ghuru" spelling for the KH-SD movie).

Here are those two pictures, repeated for making this thread the one-stop-shop for all record cover pics:



'adi Adu poongodiyE' is such a lovely MV number from kALi!

Wizzy has recently posted the youtube of 'nee illAtha pOthu' in another thread. What a lovely song from the movie 'iLamaikkOlam'!

Wait a minute - the vinyl cover says it was 'iLamai kOlam' with no 'ikku' Laughing

The album has two wonderful KJY numbers that most of us are very familiar with - the semi classical 'sreedEvi en vAzhvil aruL seyya vA' and the rocky themmAngu 'vachcha pArvai theerAdhadee'!

It was possibly the launch vehicle of the villain of Sivaji the boss...(also note the picture of KBR in the album cover, for kadhai-vasanam Smile )

Look at the covers now:

If not for the sweet 'kAlangaL, mazhakkAlangaL', none would have possibly cared for a movie called 'idhayaththil Or idam' - not now, but even at the time of the movie's arrival.

Most knew such a movie existed only by listening to this song on radio...(IOKS broadcasted this pretty regularly, especially in the evening 5.30 neengaL kEttavai program).

Funny to see the disk cover where S P Shailaja's name was originally printed against this song and later correction made it S Janaki Laughing

A couple of years back, there was this doubt in one of the hub threads about whether Nivas was actually credited as the director for kallukkuL eeram. (I stood by memory that he was the director as per posters those days and BR was credited with 'direction mERpArvai' only...in addition to playing the protagonist on screen)

Those were days when youtube didn't have the whole movie & it wasn't that easy to locate this movie on the net...(IIRC, Nerd or another prominent hubber had to search out the DVD in their collection to verify the titles).

Though such question can easily be answered nowadays as there're plenty of net resources to confirm such, it's nice to have a pic in our own thread to verify such trivia Smile

So, here is the KE album cover that clearly credits the oLippadhivALar as the director as well...(and what lovely songs IR had gifted this movie with Shocked )



BTW, if there's a vinyl record that can be called a "star on screen", that has to be this one Smile

After all, the 'siRu pon maNi' song from this created thunderous response when gettting played from a music shop in the movie 'subramaniyapuram'! Calculating from its release time, a quarter century later - a phenomenal feat by any standards!

This must be one very interesting (i.e. unique) disk cover featuring IR.

Because, it also features four other MDs!

kaNNil theriyum kathaikaL - that had 5 MD's, each one doing a portion of the movie (and not working together). Also, each one doing one song!

The disk cover clearly states that 'nAnoru ponnOviyam kaNdEn ethirE' was done by IR, with SPB-SJ-PS the singers! (Well, even if it credits incorrectly, we know who alone can compose such a number Wink ) It can also be used to correct fellows who claim IR to be the composer of 'nAn onna nenachchEn' song (SPB-VJ-Jikki) Smile One of the biggest hit songs for S-G during that time period!

Nice to see all the MD's posing for a picture together...for the sake of the movie's producer possibly, the 'pAppA pAppA katha kELu, kAkkA nariyin katha kELu' singer A L Raghavan!

Considering the fact that (annakkiLi) Devaraj-Mohan were the directors of this movie, that IR had agreed to do only a portion proves he wasn't ego-driven Smile

Another Rajinikanth movie - nAn pOtta savAl.

The MV song 'sugam sugamE, thodath thodath thAnE' was quite popular those days. (Duet with VJ).

The famous AVM movie that featured Rajinikanth as "kALaiyan" comes next...

murattukkALai, that had the famous 'podhuvAka emmanasu thangam' song.

Also has two SJ sweeties, 'pudhu vaNNangaL konjidum sOlai' & 'endhappoovilum vAsam uNdu'. The fourth number (that possibly featured Sumalatha on screen) is the SPS number 'mAmEn machchAN', one of my all-time favourites!

Karumbu Vil was another movie with IR as the main star attraction (hero Sudhakar)...

Both KJY & Jency versions of 'meen kodiththEril' were very popular those days!

Also popular was the MV-SJ number 'malarkaLilE ArAdhanai'...

Now, a landmark album Smile

The first TF of the IR-BM combo!

moodupani!

This was advertised those days as the 100th movie of IR. There seems to be two versions of the vinyl (and two sets of covers available from this website)...One has the UR song 'AsaippoNNE ArirO' and the other doesn't feature it.

IIRC, Shobha was already married to BM...

Look at these covers that feaure Shobha:







And the listing of songs from each of the disk version...
