Tamil Song picks: All about Love (Kathal): Kathal theme
Our picks for the Valentine month

Love, the most popular and commercial subject for Indian movies. There are numerous songs available to choose from. There are generally 2 school of thoughts: One school believes that "Love is sweet and Universal" and the other believes "Love is bitter". Here is our list of songs which we picked with both school of thoughts. You can see which school of thought is dominating ;-) Here you go for your leisure time watching and listening!

Album Song Why picked? Listen & Watch the song on You Tube*

Album: Keladi Kanmani
Song: Mannil Intha Kathalandri ...

This song written by Paavalar Varadarajan vouches the first school of thought that "Love is Universal". Ilayaraja's interesting composition and SPB's effort to sing the song without taking a breath are other highlights for this song.

Mannil Intha Kathalandri Yaarum Vazhthal Koodumo..?
[Can someone live on this earth without love? ]

Good song for the Valentine month ... You can steal this poem if you cannot write one ;-)

Another Ilaiyaraja's classic with Malaysia Vasudevan's teasing voice.

Another new composer for Tamil movie - Vijay Ebenezer. According to published sources Vijay is a popular devotional music composer and Harris Jayaraj worked as a keyboard player for him.

Interesting composition, nice lyric and you will like it!

In this busy world do you have time to say your love? You don't have to say it, so goes the song lyric :-) Another good composition by Yuvan.


Album: Siva Manasulla Sakthi
Song: Oru Kal, Oru Kannadi ...

Interesting definitions for love (kathal). Glad our lyricists are not part of a dictionary team ;-)

"Oru Kal, Oru Kannadi, Udaiyamal mothi kondal kathal ...
Oru Sol, Oru Mounangal, Pesamal Pesi kondal kathal"

[Translation: When a stone and a mirror can dash against each other without breaking, it is love ...
When a word and a silence can talk to each other, it is love ...]

What do you think?

Album: Aanpavam
Song: Kathal Kasakkuthaiya ...

This song written by Vaali emphasizes "how bitter love is (the other school of thought)". Another classic from Ilaiyaraja in his own voice.

A song to cheer up discouraged hearts!
One side love - composed by DSP.

Album: Karakattakaran
Song: Ooru Vittu Ooru Vanthu ...
