In the beautiful eighties, Tamil movie industry was awash with angels. A single man's fetish for young Indian girls clad in shimmering white gowns, seemed to meet his standards of artistic outreaches. It is quite funny how even acclaimed directors lose themselves to such silly gimmicks.

I found this video of a mellifluous song by Illayaraja, in a movie called "Nizhalgal" or Shadows. The main guy who comes is called Ravi, and he still is an actor but acts only in side roles. Ravi's role in this movie became so famous that even now he is called "Nizhalgal Ravi". The second guy's name is Rajasekar, and he too, though talented did not make it big. The uber cute girl in the song was never heard of again in the movie industry.

Nizhalgal Ravi looks so shady in this song, that I can only think of someone like him brushin random females in public transportation. No idea why the director thought he was good looking :(

OMG - the song picturization is so hilarious :-D! There are way too many funny scenes - not the least of which is the fully-dressed heroine taking a sudden flying leap into a pond filled with flowers...!
