The Faltering Lullaby

When people think of actress Sujatha the "kadal meengal" song comes to mind. But somehow I feel the pathos in the below song is very chilling. Listening to this song can have a profound effect on your mood. I know Ilayaraja deserves the credit for this. But here is a perennially sad actress at her best playing a very sad role.

This song along with Pillai Nila (Neengal Ketavai) and Azhagiya Kanne (Udhiri Pookal) defines mother- sentiment melancholy. At times they played all the songs in a single Oliyum Oliyum theme.

RIP Sujatha for one last time (have seen u die several times on the silver screen)... she was one azhumoonji actress who would never fit in a comedy movie.. even sowcar and vijayakumari have acted in lighter roles but not sujatha..

I, metti oli (from metti) is another classic piece abt mother sentiment, though the song is a duet...

She was brilliant in Avargal. Even 'Thalaatudhey vaanam' from Kadal meengal has a similar effect on ones mood. Great actress. RIP.

Pillai nila from neengal ketavai is an awesome song. Typifies the single mom..
