Manisegaran on Udumalai Narayana Kavi

Original Thread

  • From: Manisekaran (@ bat-48-151.tm.net.my) on: Wed Apr 22 06:33:30 EDT 1998


    Udumalai Naarayanakkavi was most popular before the coming of the geethakkuyil Kannadasan and the ppaattukkoru kOttai Kalyana Sundram. U.Na.Kavi was affectionately called "Kaviraayar" in the cine circles. Producers used to wait in Q to get songs from him. C.R Subbaraman was of the opinion that U.Na.Kavi was the only best lyricist, and he even side-stepped Kannadasan. Before Kannadasan could establish his hidden talents already latent in him, CRS suddenly passed away.

    Though born in Kovai district he used Udumalaippettai as his initial. He started to write songs for stage dramas, but as the more glamorous and lucrative cine industry picked up momentum, U.Na.Kavi switched to writing songs for films. He was a contemporary of Paabanasam Sivan, and earned equal respect. He excelled in writing songs for the peasants as well as seerthirutha paadalakaL. With the constant association of the PaguthaRivu kumbal, he came to accept their philosophies. He wrote many songs for Anna's films, and Kalaignar also used him. He composed songs for NSK, of course with basic idea emanating from NSK. Remember the most popular "Kinthanaar Sarithiram"?.

    As we have to move fast let me just touch 2 of the numerous imnmortal songs that he has left for posterity.

    1. A song from Sella Pillai

    Naadu Nadakkira Naadayiley
    Namakkey Onnum Puriyiley
    Naagareega Thinusukalaley
    Nallathu Kettathu Theriyiley

    LadygaL podum Ravikkai ThuNiyil
    Aadavarin Bush CoatukkaLaam
    Aadavar Mathiri Penkal Meley
    Angi Nijaaru vEttikaLaam!
    Angi Nijaaru vEttikalaam

    Kalaiyai Padichavan
    Kaathai PaRakkiraan
    kaakkai PudikkiRavan
    kaaril PaRaakkuRaan

    kulamagal raagi Koolai Kudikkiraal
    koorukettu pOnaval
    kummaLam pOduRaal.

    Uthavi enRu pala nithikaL thiRattuRaan
    oorai Echipputtu Undu kaLikkiraan
    itham pala pEsi election jeyikkiRaan
    pathavi vanthathum pachonthi aagiRaan

    2.from Vivasayee

    nalla nalla nilan paarthu

    illathaar vaazhkkayiley
    inbap payir valarkkanum

    paar muzhuthum manithakkuLap
    paNbuthanai vithaithu
    paamararkal nenjathiley
    pakuthaRivai valarthu
    pOr muRaiyai koNdavarkku
    nErmuRaiyai vithaithu

    patruthanai vithaithuvittu-nalla
    otrumaiyai vaLarkkanum.

    2. Mathurai Veeran

    summa iruntha sOthukku nashtam

    ulaginil avaravar thiRamayum kaNdu
    thozhilathu purivathu migamiga nanRu
