Nilave Ennidum Nerungathe

Gemini Ganesan (aka. Kadal Mannan) is one of those few unsung heroes of the Tamil Film industry who retained his own identity amongst other stars during his time. While MGR & Sivaji were considered as super stars of their era, Gemini (also affectionately called "Sambar")held his own and his genre movies were predominately romantic subjects which probably earned him the "kadal mannan" title. In those days his dress style were infact trendsetters.

PB Srinivas use to be the voice of choice for Gemini and this pathos number from the movie Raamu is no different. PBS with his silky voice has rendered this awesome song with such ease that it remains green even to this day. The lyrics for this song was written by Kannadasan for MS Viswanathan's music.

Those days songs with 3 charanams were so common and this one is no exception as well. Considering the length of this song I have limited my rendition to one charanam while the remaining ones infact follow the same pattern.

Hope I was able to get you nostalgic while you enjoy listening to my rendition of this song.
