Sathya Jyothi

Remade in Tamil as Manidhanin Marupakkam, which itself is a remake of the original Malayalam movie Nirakkoottu featuring Mammootty.  

Digression Smile

nanRi for the information - looks like Sumalatha did this story in Kannada too Smile

She did a few great movies in Malayalam, "thoovAnaththumbikaL" being the best!

I watched niRakkoottu only in recent years (on DVD) and it's a nice movie.  OTOH, "poomAnamE" song is very familiar right from the time it came out - being my early days in Palakkad where it got played everywhere.

Especially in the bus in which I used to go to work daily! KSC still had the teenager voice in this song (which was a rage in Kerala).

One of the few great songs that Shyam made IMHO (no comparison to IR of course ; other favorites from him are "vaishAka sandhyE", "ivaL dEvadhai idhazh mAdhuLai", "Anandha dhAgam", "ponnE bhoomiyadi" and may be "mazhai tharumO en mEgham")  Smile

That's all I meant! Smile  "No comparison to IR"! 

I do like Shyam's music.  Without any offense/disrespect to Shyam, IR songs are on a different plane altogether.  

Also, I am greedy enough that Fazil's Manichitrathaazhu (songs by MG.R. & score by Johnson) should have been composed by IR!  We could have received a stunning album like Salangai Oli including the Background Score.

Tri-lingual remake of Naanum Oru Thozhilaali

The audio sleeve image is from this forum itself!  Credit: karthicc

None of the 3 songs are available anywhere.  If anyone has the audio, you could post it here.

71+3=74 songs

Kannada songs of Maestro IR - Page 3 Sooryo10

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Then, for 2 years, IR had no movies in Kannada.  Wondering why.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#18. Namma Bhoomi - 1989       Remake of 1985 Annai Boomi

Director: R. Thyagarajan                Lead Cast: Tiger Prabhakar, Nalini, Charanraj, Ilavarasi

75. O Julie Julie - SJ - charming children-theme song with various shades in the tune

 

76. Rathriyu - SPB, SJ - beautiful duet

  

77. Pusthakau Odhu - SJ, MV (again, NOT SPB, as mentioned in the credits description) - Mehfil-style duet

Yes!

Interestingly, while I very clearly knew that "vaishAka sandhyE" and the other songs I mentioned were by Shyam right then i.e. during the days they came out, "poo mAnamE" was a different case.

Never knew who the MD was those days Embarassed Didn't even know the movie the song was from. (Didn't care to check - any of my Malayali friends could have easily identified for me).

Only in recent years i.e. after watching the movie on DVD did I know it is from niRakkoottu and Shyam was the MD Smile

Namma Bhoomi winds up the 1980s outing of IR in Karnataka.

And after a LONG hiatus of 7 years, IR gets #19: Nammoora Mandara Hoove in 1996.  The songs are already in Page 1 of this thread - 

77+7=84 songs



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, moving to: #20. ShivaSainya (1996)

Excellent album by IR, overall, with a good variety.  It has 7 songs, still uncompromising in orchestration or melody.

Director: Shivamani      Lead Cast: Shiva Rajkumar, Nivedita Jain, Arundhati Nag

Lyricists: Sri Ranga, Shyamasundara Kulkarni, V. Manohar, Doddaranga Gowda & IR!

Singers: Mano, IR, Chitra, Arunmozhi (a jackpot for Mano)



85. Arey laila laila - Mano, Arunmozhi, chorus - Fun song with a Middle-Eastern spin

86. Chikkamagaloora - IR, Chitra, chorus - Sweet duet with delectable rhythm

87. Om shanthi shanthi - Mano, chorus - Trendy, situational number in devotional background

88. Raja namma rajyake - Arunmozhi, Mano, chorus - Catchy yet melodious number 

89. Jailali huddi Like a Star @ heaven - IR, Mano, chorus - Bright folk-ish song with dramatic interludes (LYRICS by IR)  

Like a Star @ heaven This is the song IR was talking about (maybe, at IIT last year), that the lyricists were unable to come up with lines for that situation, and hence IR ends up penning that song, all by himself!

90. Yuva kranthiya - Chorus - Uplifting title song with beautiful choir-styled chorus

91. O mere pyaare - Chitra, Mano - foot-tapping number with funny lyrics and a heady rhythm

Audio available on Mio, Gaana.com & Raaga.com - https://www.raaga.com/kannada/movie/shivasainya-songs-K0000626

BC wrote:Another Album hit: Nee Nanna Gellalare (1981).  

Director: Vijay   Lyricist: Udayashankar   Singers: S. Janaki & Rajkumar

Featuring the ever-popular Jeeva Hoovagide in which the music and vocals remind you of a perennial river. 

Probably, the only time Rajkumar sang for IR (2 songs including the title song)


Seeing this thread only now. Wonderful. BTW, Rajkumar sang one more song later for Raja. It was for a Ramesh Aravind movie, titled 'Hoomale'. He sings the song 'hoomale hoomale'. His voice by that time had aged a bit but he sings well. The tune is lovely.

Thank you.  I have never heard of that Hoomale song, though familiar with 2 songs from the album.  Will certainly add it, when getting there.

Next up is #21: Gulabi (1996)

Director, Lyricist: S. Narayan       Lead Cast: Ramkumar, Roshni (sibling of Jyotika/Nagma)

Singers: SPB, KSC, IR, Arunmozhi, Sowmya, Rajesh

Audio available on Gaana - https://gaana.com/album/gulabi-kannada 



92. Madhura naadha - Sowmya, Arunmozhi - beautiful duet with a sweet charanam & a Mandolin postlude

93. Ee cheluve - Chitra, Rajesh - trendy, melodious duet

94. O prema devathey - IR, Chitra - another melody with good interludes

95.  Kelisadhe prema - SPB, Chitra - divine, haunting duet with IR singing the prelude

96. Beesu mungaare - SPB - gloomy solo with dramatic charanam & postlude

97.  Arey chaanchaare - SPB, Chitra - catchy duet

98. Ooru malaguthidhe - Rajesh, Chitra - melacholic song

Yet another good album from IR.  But, as with several IR movies, all songs fell prey to an average movie, IMHO.

Looks like the director could not get enough of duets; probably he would have asked IR "Give me 5 romantic duets and 2 sad songs!".  IR would have been like "As if I was expecting anything else!".

Idhayam itself gave me a migraine, though I watched it first only 8 years later.  IR music was the sole saviour of that movie.

How many "love stories" does Indian Cinema have?!  And yet, till today, they keep churning out more and more of the same mediocrity.

#22. Prema Raaga Haadu Gelathi - 1997

Director: Sunil Kumar Desai      Lead Cast: Shiva Rajkumar, Nivedita Jain, Ramesh Aravind, Srinath

Lyricists: S. M. Patil, K. Kalyan   Singers: SPB, Chandrika Gururaj, Manjula Gururaj, Gangadhar, Shiva Rajkumar

Audio is on: Jio Saavn & Gaana   https://www.jiosaavn.com/album/prema-raaga-haadu-gelathi/w0rZxKwAa5o & https://gaana.com/album/prema-raaga-haadu-gelathi
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The making of the movie where they talk about IR:

  
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The team of the successful Nammora Mandara Hoove returned again, but it looks like the movie did not do well like NMH.

STUNNING album.  Apparently, the Background Score is popular as well.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
99. Baa baare o gelathi - SPB, CG - Slow-paced melody (CG's voice slightly resembles that of Preeti Uttam Singh). The anupallavi is amazing.  The short version of this can be heard on Gaana.com: https://gaana.com/song/baa-baare-o-gelathi-bit 



100. Malle huva male - Gangadhar - Sombre solo with superb interludes & a brilliant Saxophone postlude.  Short version of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlZjOTOC6-M 



101. O baale baale - Shiva Rajkumar (pretty good singer) - Catchy solo with trendy rhythm



102. Lalanaamani - SPB, Gangadhar, CG - What a song!  X number of variations!  applause A crazy roller-coaster ride!  A Zig-zag prelude and an addictive anupallavi 



103. Naav handaang - SPB, Manjula Gururaj (the lady who sang Unnai thaane in Nallavanukku Nallavan) - Weird-sounding pallavi with a heady rhythm and a postlude - The last song in this IR-Kannada-hits-jukebox 


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A string of Background Scores:

#24. Hoomale - 1998

Director: Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar     Lead Cast: Ramesh Aravind, Suman Nagarkar

110. Hoomale hoomale - Dr. Rajkumar - Cheerful song; Rajkumar's voice has considerably aged from the times of Jeeva Hoovagide, ~ 2 decades; in some places, his voice in this song resembles that of MV.

115. Nanna muddhu - Ramesh Chandra - Folk-ish song with beautiful interludes

The rest of the audio is on Mio & Spotify: https://mio.to/album/Hoomale+%281999%29 and https://open.spotify.com/album/0nBn1WqgtP3IM6Q2qS2FHI

#25: Usire - 2001 - A remake of Tamil movie, Bharathi Kannammaa

Director: Prabhu Solomon (his only stint with IR)      Lead Cast: Ravichandran, Rachana Banerjee

Lyricist: K. Kalyan                                                  Singers: KJY, KSC, SPB, Mano, Bhavatharini

116. Preethisuvve preethisuvva - KJY, Bhavatharini - Gloomy melody; the pallavi touches the base of an old Tamil song of IR sung by BSS "(Vaazhve maayamaa) Verum kadhayaa" lines, and then veers away 

 

117. Chandri nin chanda - KJY - Rhythmic melody with good interludes

 

118. Chilipiliyenno chilipiligale - KSC - Beautiful racy melody

  
119. Majunu alida marubhoomi - Mano - Intense, touching melody with changing shades in the tune; well-rendered by Mano applause
 


120. Muththu helo maathidhu - SPB, KSC - Festive song with superb beats - https://www.hungama.com/song/muththu-helo-maathidhu/2077794/

121. Janapadha annodhu - KSC, SPB - Duet begins with prelude by SPB, but gets interesting with a twist of KSC rendering the pallavi - https://www.hungama.com/song/janapada-annodhu-namma-jeeva/2077800/ 

Audio is on Hungama: https://www.hungama.com/album/usire/2045750/

#26: Namma Preethiya Ramu - 2003 (Remake of the original Malayalam movie, Vasanthiyum Lakshimuyum pinne Nyaanum; Kaasi in Tamil)

Director: Sanjay-Vijay       Lead Cast: Darshan, Navya Natarajan, Hamsavijetha, Doddanna

Lyricists: K. Kalyan, B.P. Ramegowda (Krishna Priya)       Singers: Hariharan, Udit Narayan, IR, Ganga Sitharasu

Of ALL the versions, with respect to music, Tamil version is the best, next is Kannada, and third only is Malayalam.  Histrionics-wise, both Kalabhavan Mani & Vikram score a century.  
Background Score-wise, TAMIL Kaasi is the BEST applause .  Anybody who have not watched the movie should watch it.  A good movie by Vinayan.  Yet again, IR gets NO award for doing all this.

Maestro IR always breathes the same air as the director or sometimes even outdoes the director's vision (a pride for IR; an envy for some directors).  

Here, IR understands the emotions of a harmless, innocent, good-natured, blind man so well that he chooses the same singer for all the songs (Hariharan) and also tames Hariharan's sometimes-over-the-top nuance-tantrums down, because all the songs are sung by a naive, blind, rural man and not a sophisticated, professional singer!

Watching Kaasi gives you so much TRAUMA that you can never pull yourself up to watch it again, as seen only in another IR movie like Avatharam, Moondraam Pirai, Mahanadhi, Sethu et al.

Audio(video) Jukebox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwFiNP65Abo - 

  

122. Naa kaano lokavaanu (Naan kaanum) - Udit - He has sung well, but cannot match Hariharan's depth

123. Kannille hodaru - Udit, Ganga - A different song filling in for Rokkam irukkira, probably.

124. Joli jokaaliyalli - Hariharan - A different song again, than the one in Kaasi album.  Cheerful song; a fusion of Folk & Western; well-rendered.

125. Nannede baanali (En mana vaanil) - Hariharan - Lesser nuances in the charanam than the Tamil version.  Second interlude is slightly different.

126. Badavana gudisalanu - IR - Melancholic song 

127. Tegada marakadidhu - Hariharan

4 different songs for this Kannada album, even though it is just a remake.

Audio is on Jio Saavn: https://www.jiosaavn.com/album/namma-preethiya-ramu/G6Ade7VvFys_

Director: K. M. Chaitanya                       Lead Cast: Chethan Kumar, Veda Sastry (Archana)

Lyricists: D. Sumana Kittur, K. Kalyan      Singers: IR, Nanditha, Vijay Yesudas

Audio is on Gaana & Mio: https://mio.to/album/Aa+Dinagalu+%282007%29

Jukebox on YouTube:

 

128. Sihi gaali - IR, Nanditha - IR voice adds that extra depth and emotion.

129. Aa Dinagalu - Vijay Yesudas, Nanditha

130. Aa dinagalu - Vijay Yesudas - somber version of the romantic duet.

A short and sweet album.  Yet again, everyone else gets some award for this movie, except IR!

Lyricists: V. Nagendra Prasad, Kaviraj     Singers: IR, Shreya Ghoshal, KSC, Kunal Ganjawala, Udit, Karthik, Manjari, L. N. Shastry, Reeta, Tippu

The album has a whopping 8 songs, but still every song is a good one and nothing is average.

Audio is on Gaana, Hungama & Jio Saavn: https://www.jiosaavn.com/album/bhagyada-balegara/Lg6Kw-VTGP0_



131. Balegaara balegaara - SG, Kunal - Folk romantic number with beautiful charanam

132. Nannenne noduvanu - IR, SG - Good melody duet 

133. Madhu magalu - Udit, KSC - Sweet duet with catchy rhythm

134. Bhagyada balegaara - Reeta, Tippu - This mellifluous song was tuned for the lyrics.

135. Ghallu ghallenutha - Karthik, Manjari - Foot-tapping folk number tuned for the lyrics

136. Chendulli chendulli - IR, SG - Good orchestration

137. Badu badu - L. N. Shastry - Gloomy, hypnotic number; well-rendered

138. Zallu zallu - Kunal - Folk rhythm-based cheerful song

#29: Prem Kahani - 2009       

Director: R. Chandru       Lead Cast: Ajay Rao, Sheela

Lyricists: K. Kalyan, V. Nagendra prasad, Kaviraj, Santhosh       Singers: IR, Sadhana Sargam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sriram Parthasarathy, Rahul Nambiar, Tippu, Bela Shende

A loaded album with 8 fine songs.

Audio is on Gaana, Jio Saavn & Mio: https://mio.to/album/Prem+Kahani+%282009%29

Here is the YouTube jukebox: 



139. Yaarivanu yaarivanu -  SS - Sweet melody 

140. Hodadavane - RN, Tippu - Addictive, hip, urbane dance number.  Well-picturized with good choreography too



141. Giliya mariyondhu - IR - Heart-breaking solo

142. Rangu rangu - IR, SG - Superb, rhythmic, fast-paced duet with fine orchestration

143. Nannavale - RN - Choking song in elegy-style.  IMHO, this also should have been sung by IR.  While RN sang it very well, IR's emotional delivery is something else!

144. Kokile koogu - Bela - Sweet-as-a-cuckoo solo

145. Yarivalu yarivalu - SP - It looks like Sriram has gone out of his box to croon this out, but his voice sounds ill-fitting; nevertheless a good version of the first song. 

146. Badavara manege - SS - Beautiful lullaby

147. Shrungaara bangaara - SG - Lilting melody with excellent charanam

#30: Ajantha - 2009

Director: Rajppa Ravishankar      Lead Cast: Venkatesh, Honey Rose

Lyricist: K. Kalyan                      Singers: IR, Nandhita, Vijay Prakash, Vijay Yesudas, Tippu, Madhumitha, Murali, Swetha

A good musical.  It looks like all the good music fell a prey for an average movie, as is the case with several IR movies.

Audio is available on Raaga.com (9 songs): https://www.raaga.com/kannada/movie/ajantha-songs-K0001985

I have described the songs in the order of my favorites - ranging from best to average. 

148. Elli iruve swarave (Enge irundhaai isaiye) - IR, Nandhita - Complex composition.  It is amazing how IR was able to conceive a good orchestration, that is otherwise unrelated to the song, and molded it to suit the movie's situation and audience's taste.  Two versions are there: Happy & Sad.



149. Yaaru yaarendhu - VP - Well-orchestrated, addictive, light-as-air romantic solo with a fine charanam; well rendered by VP.

150. Yaaru hogadha - VY, Nandhita - Simple, mellifluous duet with superb charanam and good orchestration

151. Pannavu konchavu - Nandhita - Beautiful intense melody

152. Kaigalali keyboardu - Tippu - pretty catchy, fun and youthful male solo

 

153.  Ho ho - Nandhita - A good song that begins in Western mode, proceeds to light music tune with folk rhythm and then changes again, to end with classical shade, without the regular pallavi-charanam-pallavi-charanam-pallavi pattern.

154. Aaye aaye - Madhumathi - A better singer could have done some justice to this song.  Even more injurious is the cast and picturization - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE6ruXBCbug

155. Haakku baa - Murali, Swetha - Not a bad song to listen to, but watch the video at your own risk!

#31: Suryakaanti - 2010

Director: K. M. Chaitanya        Lead Cast: Chetan Kumar, Regina Cassandra

Lyricists: Yograj Bhat, V. Nagendra Prasad, Jayanthi Kalkini, Kaviraj, K. Kalyan

Singers: IR, Shreya Ghoshal, Karthik, Kunal Ganjawala, Roshini, Tippu, Neha, Anitha, Suvvi, Reshma

The songs seem to be well-picturized.

Audio is on Hungama: https://www.hungama.com/album/suryakanti/1422323/

Jukebox on YouTube:

 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

156. Solpa soundu jaasthi - Roshini, Neha, Anitha, Suvvi, Reshma, IR - An unusual and trendy song.  Is that strange voice IR's?!

157. Chan chanaare - SG, chorus - Sweet, addictive, foot-tapping, enlivening melody. The pallavi orchestration is superb! applause



158. Edeya baagilu - KG, SG - Slow-paced, breezy, jazz-based old-world-style melody



159. Mauni naanu - Karthik -  Beautiful melody

 

160. Jaikaara haakona - Tippu, Roshini - Folk-style song with heady rhythm

161. Mauni naanu - Karthik - Even slower, pathos version of the fourth song.  Karthik could have emotionally differentiated both versions better.  This is where he falls short of the likes of SPB, KJY etc. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oBwAPhlF28

#32: Nannavanu - 2010

Director: Srinivas Raju             Lead Cast: Prajwal Devaraj, Aindrita Ray

Lyricist: V. Nagendra Prasad     Singers: Bela Shende, SPB, IR, Vijay Yesudas, Sriram Parthasarathy, Karthik, Tippu

Yet another good album from IR.

Audio for free listening is not available online.  You can download the songs as files, from https://wsongs.com/nannavanu.html but not sure if they are safe downloads.

162. Muthu thuthu thaare - IR, Bela - Nice, rhythmic melody

 

163. Enidu enidhu - Sriram P., Bela - Fusion melody with zigzag charanam

  

164. Modhalane baari - Sweet romantic duet; SPB shoots up a bit towards the end of the second charanam. 



165. Hey maamu - Karthik, VY, Tippu - Lively song with superb vocals and anupallavi

  

166. Om Shivoham - SPB, Bela, chorus - Folk-style, dance-based devotional song, with SPB touching some high notes so amazingly well that my throat hurts!  Second interlude is really heady and fantastic!  It has NOTHING to do with its namesake Naan Kadavul song. 



167. Devadi deva (bit song) - SPB - Softer, devotional, Carnatic-based song that reminds you of Vedham from Saagara Sangamam/Salangai Oli.  



168. Denna dennaanna - VY, chorus - Trendy, groovy song with EDM-style arrangement

#33: Hare Rama Hare Krishna - 2011

Director: C. V. Ashok Kumar      Lead Cast: Sri Murali, Pooja Gandhi

Lyricist: Hamsalekha! (It is amazing how another famous composer writes/works for IR, given that Hamsalekha himself is IR's peer and has composed for some popular numbers in Tamil like the ones from Paruva Raagam, Kodi Parakkudhu, Captain Magal etc.  And of course, yes, he is a fan of IR.  Turns out it is Hamsalekha who penned all the songs himself in the Kannada original of PR, Premaloka.)        

Singers: KJY, Karthik, Rita, Kunal Ganjawala, Tippu, VV Prasanna, Ganga

There is nothing on YouTube.  The only source is Mio: https://mio.to/album/Hare+Rama+Hare+Krishna+%282011%29 

169. Angel angel - Karthik, Rita - Melodic duet

170. Baalu idhu - KJY - Gloomy solo

171. Naanendhu Bombe - Kunal - Trendy number

172. Hare rama hare krishna - Tippu - Very good, uplifting song 

173. Kampunee - Prasanna, Ganga - Peppy, folk-style song with good rhythm

A pleasant listen, overall.

Jukebox on YouTube: 

 

178. Ee janumave (Indha porapputhaan) - Kailash Kher - Fine song for foodies!  3 greatest food-based songs in the history of music: Kalyaana samayal saadham, Enna samayalo & this!

179. Gaaliyaa maatali (Eeramaai eeramaai) - Vibhavari, Ranjit -  - Such a feel-good song.

180. Manadi belagaayithe (Therindho theriyaamalo) - Ramya, Karthik - Another outstanding melody.

181. Bareyadha saalanu (Kaatru veliyil) - Sharreth instead of IR - Sharreth has rendered it very well, though I like IR's Tamil version better.

#37: Mythri - 2015

Director: B. M. Giriraj     Lead Cast: Puneeth Rajkumar, Master Adithya Bharadwaj, Ravi Kale, Mohanlal, Atul Kulkarni, Archana Shastry

Lyricists: Yogaraj Bhat, H. S. Venkateshamurthy, Jayanth Kaikini, Sharanya Gaonkar, B. M. Giriraj, IR

Singers: IR, Monisha, Bhavatharini, Kailash Kher, Shravan, Anitha, Nancy

Audio is on Mio, Gaana & Hungama: https://mio.to/album/Ilaiyaraaja/Mythri+%282015%29 

YouTube Jukebox: 

 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

184. Hudugaatave hudugaatavo - Monisha, chorus - Peppy song with a bit of pallavi tune resembling the pallavi of "Oru naayagan" from Thaavani Kanavugal.

185. Idhu yaava lokavo - Bhavatharini, IR - Beautiful, breezy melody 

 

186. Geluvu ondhe - Monisha, Nancy, Anitha - Fast, steady-paced number

187. Aakaashaa edhurunto - Shravan, Monisha - Uplifting tune with foot-tapping rhythm.  Penned by the director himself. 

 

188. Chandraanenu chanda - Kailash Kher - Gloomy melody
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
189. Vishaalavaadha hrudayakintha - IR - WRITTEN by IR as well!  Divine tune.  This is a short, bit-song appearing in the end credits but not available as part of the album's soundtrack.  I wish it was a complete 5-minute song!  IR's voice makes it extra special.  Even within those 1 and a half minutes, you will be moved to shed a teardrop or two!  This song goes to show that IR takes care of the music (of a movie) from the first bar of the title card to the last bar of the end credits; NO exaggeration.
