Lyrics – Music India Online

Shot 45 years back, this is still the most perfect song ever shot for a tamil film. And then there is Pachai Niramey from Alai Paayuthey.

From the camera to editing to lyrics, music and performance, just about everything dazzles here. A classic example of aaberi raaga which has created magic in just about every song it has been used, on-screen.

Anytime Pasamalar is played on cable, the whole of Tamilnadu starts to shed a tear. A classic, it really is.
