Rare Song! Rare Movie! Rare Pairing! Year 1969

This is a Rare Song from a Rare Movie featuring the Rare Pairing of Muthuraman and Saroja Devi who have acted together in just a handful of movies. This beautiful song has been rendered in exemplary fashion by P Susheela under the music direction of M S Viswanathan for the movie, "Odum Nathi".  This movie was directed by Dada Mirasi for Chitra Mahal productions in the year 1969. Ravichandran, Balaiah and Nagesh have performed supporting roles in the movie. Nothing much is known about this movie, (not even a Wikipedia or IMDB Posting!) although it appears from the scenes in the song that Balaiah is looking for a suitable bride for his son who happens to be Ravichandran. The movie also has other popular songs apart from this one which mentions about the famous deity Vayalur Murugan who is the favourite deity of the great Kirupaananda Vaariyaar.
