Pulamaipithan is one lyricist who always had "content" to offer in terms of poetry ,consistently. This one, another lyricist would have continued the alogorithm of the pallavi further and we would have had another "Gnabagam varuthEy" or TR's predictable reverse swings. But PP incorporates the immortal lines of Bharathi to add to the "Viragam" flavour.
The lines "pachai kodi" would make one think of Bharathi's vasana kavithai "katRu" about the tale of two ropes Kandan and vaLLiammai and then the lines "Mohathai kondRu vidu" -This makes me wonder whether PP knew that RB is going to sing this song!
As usual MSV the "tune Brahma" gives a lovely tune and again fails in the interludes and the use of Synth gives you the feel that he made the studio electrician or a punch card operator to play it.
RB gets into the song, brings out the mood pretty well. Lack of recognition -is it new to Bharathi and his family?
Mano went on to sing 100s of songs without ever attempting expressions and brought enough disrepute to SPB...
Even DC,SNS,Jolly and the soulless Arunmozhi had more songs to their credit. But in case of RB what adds to the surprise is that despite he being TVG's protege, IR did not consider him.
