How many times you have gone to the picture hall got thoroughly bored by the flick & suddenly an excellent song comes along ( in most cases horribly picturised ) It left you wondering what is this song doing in a movie like this. Conversely you liked a song very much that you went to see the movie with the same result.
For starters I have given half a dozen.
1.gangai nadhi oram Raman nadanthan ( varaprasadham. Vijay Kumar , jay chitra horror)
2.meen kodi theril manmatha rajan (Karumbu vil. why was this movie made beats me)
3 engum niraindha iyarkayil enna sugamo ( idhu eppadi irukku. dandama irrukku. based on sujatha's Anitha ilam manaivi. it was averitable kotthu kari. *g jai & sridevi)
4.Vaanavillinul varna jaalangal ( Naan naane than *g P Madhavan's son Aamam nee neeye than en velliya vanthe)
5.Unakkenna mele ninrai ( Simla special what was special was this was a tragic comedy. Sv sekar irrunthum ...oru sirippu kood illai)
6.Malargale malargale (Love birds. pyramid natarjan & P Vasukku than velicham indha padathin nokkam enna enru)
I can think of other movies. the criteria is that the movie should suck ( of course mostly the movies would have bombed but there may be exceptions)
I don't want people to come & post simla Special Ariyaluril 20 Naal Pocchu enru. The movie sucked big time ( more so as it was from Mukta movies)
Join the fun

KKK is one of the stories of a 3 story kannadaa movie(3 stories in one movie) directed by Puttanna kanagal. Aarthi did Revathys role in the original and the villain role was played by our own super * Rajinikanth

I dont know how wide-spread it is but my friends (hi school buddies) used to do that a lot in Kovai, and I always found it very funny - especially since they said it with a straight face even though they meant it as a joke. My favorite was "brother mountain" - Annamalai!
Another cute trick was inverting the syllables. "Lico saapida porom, varaiya?", or sometimes when in the mood for beef biriyani they'll say - "inaikku duma".
I dont know if any other director could have saved KKK - it had enough masala in it, ex. Rajini dodging bullets multiple times, beating the crap out of the villain, a "sexy" dance number etc. The basic theme itself must have been unacceptable to the rajini fans - Rajini's wife being raped, and he accepting her back in the end, and not even killing the villain.

Uthiripookal is rated one of the best tamil movies ever...
3 or 4 weeks back there was an interview with Maniratnam in "The Hindu".
Some of Maniratnam's comments about Mahendran & Uthiripookal....
" The less story you have the better. Some themes even demand a documentary style of piling incident upon incident. Pieces of life put together can become lyrical. In ``Udhiri Pookkal'' the scattered images made fantastic poetry... "
"The credit for weaning the audience away from theatricality goes to predecessors like Sridhar, K. Balachander, Bharatiraja and Mahendran. Balu Mahendra broke new ground with his sense of composition, movement, balance and aesthetics. To see ``Mullum Malarum'' (shot by him) was to realise how zooms can be caressing, how vital composition and lensing can be, how shooting 35mm with a slightly reduced form can give the film
a wide screen impact."
"It's just that ``Roja'' and ``Bombay'' dealt with issues closer to them ... got translated into Hindi. If I get anywhere near what Mahendran did in ``Udhiri Pookkal'' I'll be a happy man.
Sensitive images...? I'm trying...all the time... Let me see if one day... "
As far as "Metti" ... it is another Mahendran Classic... The entire film has just 5 Characters... SarathBabu , brother
of 3 Sisters and Senthamarai the Drunken Father...Kanneer irukkum varai azhuthu kotti vidalam...
IMO, "Nandu" songs might have inspirational to Maniratnam's "Naan Sirithal Deepavali" in Nayagan & "Manram vantha thendralukku"
in Mouna Raagam.

am still looking for the songs in 'Metti'.... wonderful songs... but IMO, just 'coz it didnt run commercially, it cannot be called a 'dud' movie.
the speciality of any Mahendran movie is there'll be central charecters but the other charecters are inter-woven into the plot that u'd find it difficult without the sub-charecters. the best example wd be 'uthiripookkal'. 'johny' could be an exception.

We can even go one step more to say that Mani's Mounaraagam itself is a kind of inspiration from Nenjaththai KiLLaadhae, including the same type climax.

All of Thulluvadho Elami is wasted in the film. Apparently it is very vulgar film
