The Musical Side of Vijay's Movies

Allah Un Aanaipadi…

For those who are wondering if such a song had come featuring Vijay… Yes, it had. One of Vijay’s early movies Chandralekha with Vanitha Vijayakumar playing the female lead had this song. It is a beautifully composed romantic melody by Maestro Ilayaraja and sung by Unnikrishnan and Preethi Utham Singh.

Vijay plays a Muslim in the film and Vanitha a Hindu Brahmin. So the whole song is set with a Hindu-Muslim integration feel. The music and lyrics express this in an excellent manner.

An example is this:

Female: Kaadhalukku undu kalyana raasi
Sertthu vaikum nammai allavin aasi

Male: Kel kadhu kulira kaadhal enum geethai naalum padippen

Shot completely in the Indian Wonder Taj Mahal, Agra, this song is also a visual delight. An interesting thing which many would not know is that, there was no permission granted for playing a film song in Taj Mahal. So, during the shoot, Vijay and Vanitha were singing out the song actually without the song playing in the background, as with normal shoots.

The song can be listened to online at this link.

    Vow ! U had known of that no song playback while shooting trivia. And, vijay comes with bare foot in the song. The heroine looks SO fat and the film is miserable to watch... This is yesteryears vijay that many would have seen only after known him as kadhalukku mariyadhai or poovae unakkaga hero.
