Festivals and Films

The distant sounds of the small drums used on Bogi Pongal instantly brought memories of a famous film. On a second thought, I felt that most of the festivals or occasions remind me of some song or a movie. Here's the list

New Year:
'ILamai Idho Idho' - Sagalakalaa Vallavan.
Who can forget that bike stunt and Raja's superb music. One of my college seniors used to sing it just like the original

Bogi Pongal:
Thalapathi......Need I say anything more

Pongal:
'Pongudhu pongudhu paalum pongudhu' - Mahanadhi

Maattu Pongal:
Murattu KaaLai - the jalli kattu and following song 'Podhuvaaga en manasu thangam'...ippa paathalum whistle adikkanum pola irukkum

Valentine's day:
Vivek's comedy - where we wears a green shirt to signify that he is available. I think the movie is "Kannedhire Thondrinaal"

Holi:
'Andhi Mazhai Megam' - Naayagan

Vinaayagar Chathurthi:
'Vinaayagane vinay theerpavaney' song sung by Seergazhi Govindarajan. Margazhi maasam mattrum Vinayaga Chathurthi appo ellam enga oorula indha paattu thaan loud speaker-la poduvaanga

Aadi Maasam:
'108 amman' song from Purusha Latchanam. For those who cannot recollect its the song where Kushboo prays for Jayaram

Ayudha Pooja:
'Naan auto kaaran' - Basha

Navarathri:
'Raghavane ramana raghu raja' - ILamai KaalangaL.
Although 'Paada vandhadho gaanam' is my favourite in this movie, this song reminds me of navarathri golu.

Deepavali:
'Unnai kandu naan aada' - Kalyaana Parisu

Kaarthigai Deepam:
'DeebangaL ettrum idhu karthigai maasam' - Devadhai (Vineeth and Keerthi Reddy). Its a beautiful song by Raja.

Christmas:
'Devanin Kovililey yaavarum deepangaLey' - Vellai Roja.
DD has telecast that song from time immemorial for Christmas, that the song now reminds me of Christmas.
