Full Version: P.b.srinivas Favorites
Hamara Forums > Music > Regional Music > Tamil
I discovered the magic of old Tamil film music much after I did the music of Hindi films. And over the past 20 years or so when I have been enjoyed it, P.B.Srinivas has stood out as the melody voice of Tamil film music. The Viswanathan Ramamoorthy-Gemini Ganesan-P.B.Srinivas combination has provided one superlative melody after another.

I have had the pleasure of meeting this great man many times in Chennai. Talking music with him is a joy. He has deep knowledge of the nuances of music and shares my love for Talat Mahmood smile1.gif

I am sharing 3 of my very favorite PBS melodies. Hope you enjoy them too !

1. iLLamai koluvirukkum (what a disappointment the picturization of the song was !!)
Film / Composers : Hello Mr Zamindar / Viswanathan Ramamoorthy

Nice ones, Shriram - I like his voice a lot.

I remembering listening to P B Srinivas Live at Madras in the mid 70s - he was so good. He left us spellbound when singing a Hindi song of his - Chanda se hoga woh pyara.

He was at ease singing in all the south indian languages - but left a great mark on Tamil and Kannada Film music.

In his 80s now - he was honoured at a local club in Bangalore recently - where he spoke very well and sang a few Kannada songs too.

There is a 4 CD "Golden collection" of P B Srinivas in Tamil. He has talked about a lot
of the songs in this collection. Absolute must for anybody who likes PBS (I fall in that
category). I am amazed by the range of his songs. Everything from western to
semi-classical to romantic duets to sad songs to night-club numbers. There are some
total gems in that collection. My personal favorite is a duet of his with L R Eswari (what
an unlikely combination) - "MuLLil roja". Don't remember the film off the top of my head.
Thanx for the songs that you uploaded shriram.
SB Ditto!

That is kalaikovil I think unsure.gif (LREashwari and PBS duet)

After many years, I would like to hear this golden-oldie again, 'Kaalangalil aval vasatham'.
Even though I don't understand Tamil, I love this song.
Some one please upload it.

Hari Ram

here is the song you requested Hari Ram.

Movie Pava mannippu starring shivaji ganeshan, gemini ganesh, devika and savithri was a good movie with beautiful songs.

Thank you Lakshmi for this evergreen song.
Another member had PMed me the song. Now, I have two copies.
Some of these golden oldies, I love them so much that, I burn all tracks of a CD with one song and listen to them constantly in my car for next two days. Last two days, I was listening to 'esu nadigala daati ..'; next two days, I will listen to 'kaalangalil aval vasantham'
Thanks again for all great uploads,

Hari Ram

Hari Ram,

I am a fan of P.B.Srinivas. He has sung many beautiful songs both in Kannada and Tamil movies. All his tamil songs are very mellifluous. I will upload one more song. This is from famous director Sridhar's movie sumaithangi. I don't understand pure tamil though my mother tongue is tamil. I am more fluent in Kannada.
