This is a super hit song from the movie Ingeyum Oru Gangai from the 1980s. Music by Illayaraja. Illayaraja had ruled the roost in the Tamil Movie Industry during the 80s. This song features Murali and Thara (who is a very popular Kannada actress now). This song had topped the charts of all the Radio programmes during that period for several weeks. The male voice is Gangai Amaran and the female voice is that of P Susheela. Illayaraja's mastery over folk music and his ability to compose subtle melodies based on folk is showcased in this song. Incidentally the movie did not do too well.
