With Dhoom 3:Back in action, there was one more hero totally back in action. The Tiger(as he is widely called) put out another stint with this recent release. As Jackie celebrates his birthday today, Raaga.com takes a quick peek into the actor's career stint.

Listen To Jackie Shroff Songs on Raaga.com

Jackie Shroff entered the Bollywood scene with 'Swami Dada' in 1082 after which he was consistently up the scale as an actor. What made him stand out of the crowd was his attractive personality , his versatility to fit both hero and villain roles. Jackie infact at one point of time was the most sought after for a negative role. We have to wait this year until Kochadaiyaan to release to see his performance in this 'one of a kind' movie. The man himself has accepted that he enjoys playing negative characters.
Coming to some of the hit songs that Jackie Shroff is in, Devdas starring Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri and Aishwarya Rai comes to our mind. Considering we have always visualized Jackie in a very negative role, one song which also portrays the other side of this hero is the song 'Tu Mera Jaanu hai' from the movie 'Hero' which released in his initial days.
He is always seen in the side too for many hit songs - 'Choli Ke piche kya hai' is one such example from the movie Khalnayak. He was also seen in movies like 'Mission Kahmir' recently. We could infact say although a villain in most of the roles he holds a considerable prominence in songs too. There is more to come with Jackie shroff's acting maturing every year. We wish you a happy birthday Jackie.

Birds in songs

Don't we all love the way the birds chirp in the morning? Birds have always managed to bring in 'freshness', be it any scenario. No wonder our l have always made use of 'birds' when they write lyrics for the songs. The first thing that hits our mind talking about birds in Tamil songs, we cannot miss 'Love birds, love birds, Thakathimitha'. Din't this song from Anbe vaa appeal to everyone?

Ofcourse 'Pura' is an indispensible bird when it comes to songs. Here's why - "Vellai pura' songs stands testimony to this isn't it? Although used for a mellow tone, this song was loved by all.  Similar is the case with the song 'Oru pen pura' from Annamalai. These songs were set in a sad tone. From the movie Anbe Sangeetha, there is a song called 'China Pura Ondru'.

Moving to other birds, 'Kuruvi' is a noteworthy one and the best song for kuruvi is 'Chittu kuruvi mutham koduthu' from 'Pudhiya paravai'. The swaying tune in addition to the fresh lyrics stirs romantic emotions to every listener. Infact we cannot fail to remember that a Vijay Starrer movie 'Kuruvi' also exists.

Isn't the parrot a beautiful bird? And ofcourse our lyricists cannot do without the 'Kili'.  Recent movie 'Paramaivan' had the song 'Oru killi kaadhal'. Another recent romantic number with kili was Oru kili oru kili from the movie Leelai. In one way or the other the 'kili' has definitely brought out romance even with a lower midtone used in the song - Oru sola killi from the movie Uzhaipaali for instance. A striking kili song would be 'Oru kola kili  sonnathey' from Pon vilangu.

Even kuyil has been used by our lyricists and ofcourse the hit movie Kanda Naal Mudhal has a song 'Koo Koo ena kuyil thedaadha', a beautiful listen yet again. Thus birds have played a major role in depicting emotions be it sad, happy or romantic feelings in many Kollywood songs.
