After the song 'Unnai Kandu Naan Aada'
Kalaimamani P.Suseela wished the audience a very happy Deepavali.
The Guinness man Mr. U. K. Murali joined them for a few songs, notable
among them being:
Paal Vannam Paruvam Kanden" with P.Suseela
Nilavum Malarum" "
Aval Parandhu Ponaaley" with TMS
In fact, Mr U.K.Murali changed the modulation to resemble the original
singers, namely, P.B.Srinivas & A.M.Raja. The "Udayaragam" orchestra,
particularly the Violin group, was very good rising to the occasion
and providing the right support for all the songs.
Kaviarasu Vairamuthu greeted the duo when he was called on stage
to give a short speech. He felt that without them the cine songs
in Tamil could not have become this popular among the masses. He
appreciated TMS for being the main playback singer for the two giants "Puratchi
Thilagam" and "Nadigar Thilagam". He added that his
voice suited them both, for he could change it to suit the role
and character in their respective films. At the end of his speech
he commented that he was very keen to arrange a felicitation function
with the lead pair of the evening, due to their contribution to
the Tamil Film Industry for more than half a century.
On the whole, it was a wonderful evening enjoyed by the crowd who
turned in full strength to fill up the arangam to hear all the melodious,
most popular old hits. Those who missed this opportunity can view
the same on "Jaya TV" when the recorded version is telecast
on the stipulated day.
