Romba neelllamaaaana write up. And I yawned.( First time with your writing- always a time for a first I suppose )
a few points
The failure of its film would have been due to what JK has told "

Come on why this "burgeois " term on AVM. are n't you being naive here - Shanthi, Anand, Globel release seithal padam odiyirukkuma?
Let us thank small mercies and be happy with the songs.
IPTA gave us MBS and Balraj Sahni but it also gave us AK " ham ham" Hangal! So as in any other group IPTA had its fair share of rotten apples.
Flag waving should come in small doses that is why " nenjirukkum engallukku" or " tholvi nilayenna" will touch a chord while left leaning movies would leave even a left of centre person like me seeing RED!
My gut feeling says that MBS would have been the person to refuse offers that should have come his way - no naan capitalistskku work panna maaten naai vitha kaasu kuraikkum etc. I am still trying to figure out or do a google on the exact details of his death. my pakshi told me that he was found dead in a second class train dabba. if i am wrong - my question a la danal thangavelu- appa antha vaazhapaza tholil vazukki vizunda maaa yaaru? some jolna pai IPTA film guy.
saravana yaar antha kavingar- kisu kisu paani does not suit you. what is the song.it does not ring abell. I can imagine OISG breaking into agrin with his kai vaccha baniyan- ithu kooda theriyalaya enru- theriyaleyeppa ; -(
I am surprised that you have not heard much of "unmai oru naal" This is a song I have heard often alongwith "chinnakallu mukuthi" regarding thenangeetru I have nothing to say.PBS paatuppa and i can and do hear it wheneverI want.
My form with stats these days being like Kaifu's run with the bat in 2006 i should keep mum. But old habits die hard I thought ( see i have not used think oru chinnas escape route than!) Unmai was sung by ALR - i can hear ALR roll of the rs in "orru " and" poruttum". I'll look at my damp cassette covers I think I should be having it somewhere. where else could Ihave heard it if you say IVKSTC2 did not broadcast it!
AAAAvv i think ennoda responsem konjam thoonga vaikkum ragam thaan. But as you know my responses come straight from the heart at such a rate that my fingers plead mercy.
