Tamil months have always held a lot of significance in terms of the festivities that happen during the months, in terms of welcoming home a bride, in terms of weddings etc. Raaga.com brings to you exclusive songs based on Tamil months.
Let us start with Thai considering this is the Tamil month of Thai. Thambikku oru paatu which released in 1991 has the song 'Thai maadam Kalyanam'. Talking about 'thai' month , we cannot miss 'Thai pongallum pongudhu' from the movie Mahanathi.
The month of 'Aadi' on the other hand has always brought in a sense of 'happiness' thanks to the 'Aadi sale' culture. But apart from that, here are two songs that will strike us the minute we think of 'Aadi'. One is ofcourse from the recent release in 2012 from the movie Attakatthi - 'Aadi pona aavani' , with a very desi tone attached with it. 'Aadi ila kaathu adicha' from the movie villain stole our hearts for the emotional quotient brought out in the lyrics. Coming to the month of Maasi , the beautiful song in the movie Dharmadurai is worth remembering. Titled 'Maasi Maasam Aalana Ponnu' , the song was sung by Swarnalatha and K.J.Yesudas. This song needless to say was a hit in the Tamil industry.
With the song 'Vaikasi nilave' from the movie 'Unnale unnale' in singer Karthik's voice, the song not only describes pain but also gives a romantic touch to the song.
Although the month of Margazhi just ended, there are more reasons to celebrate Margazhi as these songs have always remained immortal. Haven't we all heard "Kaalangalil Aval Vasantham.. Kalaigalilae Aval Oaviyam..Maathangalil Aval Maargazhi.. Malargalilae Aval Malligai" . These two lines will put you through a beautiful mood. We cannot forget A.R. Rahman's Margazhi Poove from the movie May Maatham and ofcourse 'Maargazhi Tinggal Allava' from Sangamam. The chitthirai month seems filled with love, thanks to 'Chiithiraiyiil ena varum' from the movie Sivapaddikaram starring Vishal. This song is a beautiful duet sung by Karhik and Swarnalatha.
The movie 'Panguni Maathathil' by itself is a wonderful example to describe the month of 'Panguni'. The month of Karthigai is ofcourse synonymous with lamps and we can all connect with the song "Deepangal pesum ithu karthigai masam" from the movie Devathai.
Every month has its own reason to be welcomed. Let us all welcome every Tamil month with joy.
