Mouna Raagam sings Kamal Songs

The music show on 7th November started with a instrumental piece of the famous Illayaraja number "Thumbe Vaa."  Then the singers sang excellent but rare Kamal songs. When Murali announced a song from the movie "Raja Paarvai", everyone thought the song would be "Anthi Mazhai Pozhigirathu". But singer Ananthu mesmerized the audience with the song "Azhage. Azhage Devathai".

Abaswaram Ramji was the guest of honour. He recalled his 40-year-old friendship with Kamal. When people ask Kamal why Raja Paarvai did not do well commercially he used to joke, " That's because Ramji comes in the first scene!".

The other numbers were Vai Raja Vai from Panchatantiram, Naan katil Mele Kanden Vennila from Neeya, and Irumanam Konda Thiruman Vazhvil from Avargal. The mimickry for the Avargal song was excellent. "Tere mere beechu mae"  in a female voice from Ek Dujhe Ke Liye was again excellent.
