Rare Song 865
Movie: engaL thAi
A very nice TMS-PS duet.
Saravanan writes about the movie, engaL thAi...
'engaL thaai (1973/ Malliam Productions) was written and directed
by Malliam Rajagopal. Savitri played the title role of the mother
who struggles to bring up the children, and then they turn out
to be ungrateful or something like that. I saw it long back, vaguely
remember Major playing her husband. AVM Rajan was the hero, playing
one of her sons. V.Gopalakrishnan played another son. I think
another son was some small time actor who later showed up in Doordarshan
dramas. I remember CID Sakunthala also being in the cast.
There are 4 songs from the movie: Two duets stand out- 'ramanin
nayagi' (TMS/PS) and 'un kaathai kodu, oru sEthi solla' (Rajesh/SJ).
MSV singing Bharathiar's 'thondRu nigazhnthathu anaithum' is a
great song as well. Another song is LRE's 'ada veLuthu kattu machaan'
