Audible Andrea

This wonderful actress conquered our hearts with her graceful acting in Pachaikili Muthucharam.  And even before we knew it, this actress showed us her other talent. Yes, this wonderful actress is also a wonderful singer. Although it was 'Idhu varai' from the movie Goa which made her famous, she has a lot of songs to her credit?

Andrea has delivered some beautiful renditions. One of the most startling discovery is that she is also one of the singers for 'Eno Eno panithuli' from the movie Aadhavan along with Sudha Raghunathan. If we had to vote one of her best songs then it would ofcourse be 'un mela aasadhaan' from aayirathil Oruvan. A well trained singer that she is, Andrea has also exposed in the music arena that she is a very versatile singer. Her romantic rendition with a tone of huskiness was loved by all. One track that is worth mentioning for her husky tone is 'Oru Murai' from the movie 'Muppozhudhum un karpanaigal'. Din't 'Maalai neram' from Aayirathil Oruvan trigger a spark of romance in you? Din't you feel like singing it for the love of your life? Thanks to Andrea then. Although she hasn't been used by the great A.R.Rahman for her voice, Andrea has lent her voice for music directors like Vijay Antony, Harris JAyaraj, G.V.Prakash Kumar, Yuvan Shankar Raja and most importantly for the Maestro Illayaraja itself.

Following this stint was the movie 'Naya Zamana' which released in 1971 yet again followed by 'Raja Jani' and 'Seeta aur Geeta'which released in 1972. Ofcourse there was no doubt on the chemistry these two shared on screen. One can although say that it was Sholay which was released in the year 1975 that  made them popular as a couple and thanks to 'Dream girl' which hit the screens in 1977, there was definitely more noise on the two. Do you recollect the song 'Dream girl'? A beautiful song sung by Kishore Kumar, composed by Lakshmikant and Pyarelal, penned down Anand Bakshi, this song ofcourse made Dharmendra get his dream girl Hema Malini after which they tied the knot in 1980.

Another classic Dharmendra- Hemamalini song is'Dhariya mein phek do' from the movie 'Aas Paas'. Their other movies together was 'Samraat' 'Andha koon'. These movies were welcomed by many for the natural romance portrayed by these two on screen. If one had to count the number of movies these two have acted two, it would easily reach up to above 40 films. Their Dillagi movie together also won them applause for their ace acting skills.

From then until now, this couple have attached a beautiful chemistry to Bollywood. Their last although was in 2011 with Tell Me O Khuddha which did not become a hit. Will we see them more on the screen?
