Whenever the Master himself takes up the mike, it turned out to be special ,unique & evergreen ..

Though the noof songs wouldn’t cross 100, each one is praiseworthy

One of the very best of the Champion composer is SOLLATHAAN NINAIKKIREN …ULLATHAAL THUDIKKIREN…

S.V.Subbaiah’s family of 3 daughters that include Srividya and Jayachitra are young and enterprising characters . Once Shivakumar steps in as a tenant, all interesting things happen with the 3 sisters falling in love for SK . While SK moves in a dignified manner with them, whom he marries finally is all the story is about. The movie also features Ulaga nayagan Kamal Hassan who was slowly coming up . Shivakumar is the hero .......

KB always ensured that the crux of the story & any turning point of the movie is brought to book through a song & this song is no exception….

Each one of the sisters dream as if they are alongside SK …It’s a background song well picturised also in slow motion in parts….

The highlight of the song is the mesmerizing voice of MSV though S.Janaki is given 2 charanams !

Another significant feature of the song is the wonderful usage of rhythm Guitar which supports like a gentle breeze …… Well well….long before, in the early 70s itself, the Master has already pioneered the art of applying Guitar , be it a lead or rhythm…..

The song also has a lovely & very sharp interlude arrangement , each different and refreshing …. The prelude however is very short but sweet Violin which is directly linked to the pallavi….

சொல்லத்தான் நினைக்கிறேன் உள்ளத்தால் துடிக்கிறேன்
வாயிருந்தும் சொல்வதர்கு வார்தைஇன்றி தவிக்கிறேன் ஆஹா
சொல்லத்தான் நினைக்கிறேன்

A superb 1st interlude before the first charanam with a combination of Piano / Violin to begin with & the flute takes over in a nice manner which takes to the charanam…..

The sweet voice of S.Janaki comes to the front now & our hearts get filled with joy …SJ’s voice is always refreshing as ever

காற்றில் மிதக்கும் சுவை போலே அவன் கனவில் மிதக்கும் நினைவுகளே
மனவீடு அவன் தனி வீடு அவள் புகுந்தாளோ எங்கும் நிரைந்தாளோ
அவள் புகுந்தாளே எங்கும் நிரைந்தாளே ஆஹா
சொல்லத்தான் நினைக்கிறென்

That tabla usage has to be mentioned here ….top class ……

Here comes a scintillating 2nd interlude with solo Violin playing its part with a gentle support by Guitar …….This sort of solo Violin interlude is something the Master has applied sporadically for songs like Kann pona pokkile , Vaan nila nila alla ....& everytime this unique lude arrangement gives a special feeling....... Now the Master resumes with…..

காதல் என்பது மழையானால் அவள் கண்கள் தானே கார்மேகம்
நீராட்ட நான் பாராட்ட அவள் வருவாளோ இல்லை மாட்டாளோ
அவள் வருவாளே சுகம் தருவாளே ஆஹா

The melody king rushes through for the 3rd interlude with a sweet flow of Guitar & flute .. and this time its SJ again………

ஆசை பொந்குது பால் போலே அவன் அனல் போல் பார்க்கும் பார்வயிலே
கொதித்த மனம் இன்னும் குளிரவில்லை அவன் குளிர்ந்தானோ எங்கும் நிரைந்தானோ
அவன் குளிர்ந்தானே எங்கும் நிரைந்தானே அஹா
சொல்லத்தான் நினைக்கிறென்

And what a finish !!! MSV uses whistling to sign off with a flourish !!

Even Bangoos plays its part well throughout the song….

Every charanam ending with that Aahaa is unique and gives special touch to the great song….

This song is part of the glorious early 70s when the Champion Composer was at his awesome best , unleashing a series of splendid hits…….

MSV-KB had given some immemorial hits right from the late 60s and this movie is another feather to his cap……

S.Janaki is another gift to South Indian cinema …… This song could be the only one she sang with the Master ? …..Right from the 1960s to the 70s, MSV has given some superb songs to SJ and this one reminds in my memory as something special & so sweetly tuned….

Listening to songs like this makes me wonder why MSV didnt take up singing seriously ! Even in the 90s his voice was considered special that ARR requested him to sing Aaalakanda !

Just today evening, I had a chat with my elder brother ( who is a diehard IR fan & a Guitarist ) ….and he instantly recollected that final mind blowing whistling at the end of the song …….. What a splendid finish to a top class melodious composition of the great early 70s !!

Janaki sang another song with Mellisai Mannar.

Sinthu Nathi Poove from Shanker Saleem Simon (1978 - Rajanikanth & Latha)

"Sollathan Ninaikiren" is an evergreen song.

Superb Balaji Sir!!!

Songs sung by our EMPEROR are not much, but each one is SPECIAL!!! I love the violin ensemble in the prelude, and the start of our EMPEROR at "Sollathaan Ninaikiren"....

Another noteworthy song from the movie is the SPB - LRE "foot tappin" duet "Kalyaanam Kacheri"..

Dear Balaji,
Great song - Great Write up.... MSV ai purindhu kondu padalai keta arambitha kaalam......
Indha padalukaga padam parka vendum enru mudivu seidhu - Veetil ragalai seidhu (appodhu ellam nam ishtahtuku film poga mudiyadhu
Periyavargal decide seivargal - idhu nalla padam - idhu vendam enbadhai pola... children parpadharku thadai seiya patta padam. .Anal naan padalukaga padam parpen enru kettu kondu partha padam idhu.)

padam parthu vittu veetuku vandha udan engal manadhil padhidha dialogue - You don't know - Kamalin andha ragathilayae solla poga -
veetil periyavargal orae thittu - "idharku than indha padam parka vendam enru sonnen enru."

Anyway, enaku manadhil padhindhadhu - padalgal dhan.

Manam pol siripadhu 16 by whom??

Pallavi enru mannan ketka paduvenadi - Excellent situation song.

With Love,
Usha Sankar.

டியர் பாலாஜி அண்ணா...

மெல்லிசை மன்னர் பாடிய மிக அருமையான பாடலை தேர்வு செய்து அலசியிருக்கிறீர்கள். 'சொல்லத்தான் நினைக்கிறேன்' மெல்லிசை மன்னரும் எஸ்.ஜானகி மேடமும் அருமையாக பாடியிருப்பார்கள். எத்தனை முறை கேட்டாலும் அசத்தும் பாடல்.

மூன்று நாயகியர் ஒரே கதாநாயகனை (மனதுக்குள்ளேயே) காதலிக்கும்போது, அவர்கள் மனநிலையை படம் பிடித்துக்காட்டும் அருமையான சிச்சுவேஷன் பாடல்.

உங்கள் அலசல் (வழக்கம்போல)அருமையோ அருமை.

உஷா அக்கா...

இன்றைக்கு அது போல பெற்றவர்கள் தேர்வு செய்து படம் பார்க்க அனுப்பினால், எத்தனை படங்கள் தேறும்..?. நூற்றுக்கு நாலு அல்லது ஐந்து...????.

MSV's "Sollathan Ninaikiren" has that rare dream-like quality one could witness in the poems of British Poet Walter De La Mare's poetry.This song would captivate anyone's heart even after one listening. By the way there is another song which comes so closer to this in terms of melody and mesmerising ability sung by the same duo MSV and S.Janaki is from the film "Mani Osai" and the song is "Varusham Parthu Thethi Parthu Vayasu Vantha Pennai Parthu". Unlike Sollathan song, here MSV would only hum in between stanzas. But even this humming would be enough to take us to the dizzy heights.Thank you for your analysis, which every ardent MSV fans would like to do but somehow fail to do . Let all of us prostrate at the feet of this great genius MSV. I am really proud to be living at the same period as that of MSV's. May God Shower him with choicest Smile blessings and Long life

As ever, another splendid analysis by our Balaji !!!

What a great song and see how it suits the movie and the situation! Your writing conveys that aptly.

As a fan of your writing
- "பின்னிட்டீங்க தல!!!"

As usual a very good analysis dear Balaji...

This is one of the greatest song sung by MSV.
A great prelude...
In the same movie, at the end, MSV avargale oru bit song paadiyiruppaar.
"Solla ninaithathu sollaamal ponathu..."...
Yeno intha paadal TV matrum Radio-la olibarappa pattathillai...

Movie partha pothu mattum dhan ketruken...
