Comical Song from a Hilarious Super Hit Comedy Movie! Sensational Directorial Debut!

This is a hit song from the super hit Comedy Movie Kaasethaan Kadavulladaa starring Muthuraman, Manorama, Srikanth, Lakshmi, Vennira Aadai Murthy, Sasi Kumar, MRR Vasu and others released in the year 1972. The movie had been directed by Gopu who had once mentioned in an interview that it was Jayalalitha who had introduced him to the works of the great comic genius and English novelist and author P G Wodehouse. This particular movie which is his directorial debut is loosely based on the famous novel 'Leave it to PSmith' by P G Wodehouse. Wodehouse himself would have been proud of this fabulous screen adaptation of his novel with some stellar performances from the entire star cast which does not boast of any accredited Super Stars! Credit goes to the debutant director Gopu for having put together such a talented yet uncelebrated group of stars and for having brought out the best from each one of them. The music for the movie had been composed by MSV. These comical words and the funny lyrics had been written by the ever so talented and eternally youthful Vaali. The plot of the movie based on the novel is as follows: Parvathi (Manorama) is an extremely domineering second wife of Sivaswamy (Vennira Aadai Moorthy) and controls all his money while treating him like a non-entity. When Sivaswamy's son Ramu (Muthuraman) (son of his first wife) needs Rs. 3000 for his Sister's (who had married out of her own choice) husband, Manorama obviously refuses to part with the money. Srikanth playing the role of Sekhar Muthuraman's cousing has some debts to be paid of and Muthuraman who has agreed to take on that additional financial responsibility. Vennira Adai Moorthy himself needs money for his own personal needs! With all round need for money for various different needs, Ramu and his cousin Shekar (Srikanth) hatch a plot with their childhood friend Appaswamy (Thengai Sreenivasan) who pretends to be a fake swamiji in order to get to Manorama's Secret safety locker and steal a sum of Rs. 50,000. The other part of the plot involving Lakshmi, Ramaprabha and M R Vasu though not in the original novel is a welcome addition to the plot and merges and blends well with the original story. Contrary to the popular belief that this song has been sung by TMS the song has actually been sung by Kovai Soundarrajan along with K Veeramani known for his famous rendition of the song Pallikattu Sabarimalaikku and the relatively unknown singer Dharaupram Sundarrajan. Enjoy the song!
