Every evening, as the day comes to an end, we think of different things..things we could have done during the day, things we plan to do the following day, things we cherish about the day and so on. After a long day at work, we usually dedicate our evenings for some ‘me’ time and do whatever activities we really enjoy doing. Here is a wonderful list of songs that has the word ‘Maalai’ in it, and this list by itself is unique considering the mood it will set you in. Read further

Listen to Evening Time Songs on

Which song in the recent era hits your mind the minute you hear ‘Maalai’ ? Well, we could think of ‘Maalai neram Mazhai thoorum kaalam, en janal oram’ from the movie ‘Aayarathil Oruvan’ romantic is it? On similar lines is another song ‘Maalai magnum neram’ from the movie Rowthiram. The pattern to be noted here is the sway and lilting tunes usually a part of the tune considering the mood every evening we are in - a relaxed one. 

A wonderful number which every bachelor atleast once his life would have sung is ‘oru maalai ila veyil neram’ upon seeing a girl. This brilliant song by karthik is from the movie Ghajini and has Surya singing in a very romantic maner for his lady love - Asin

Similarly, in the song ‘maalayil yaaro manathodu pesa’ we see the heroine lost in thoughts where she is seen thinking and imagining a bright future. Words like ‘Moham vandhadhe’ etc bring out the romantic nature of the song going very well with the theme of ‘Maalai’ as mentioned earlier. 

Finally we all love the song ‘maalai pozhudu mayakathile naan’ from the movie Bhagyalakshmi is one of Susheela amma’s classic which ofcourse talks about delving oneself into dreams during the evening time

Thus the mood of the ‘evening’ or rather ‘maalai’ is always associated with relaxation, a time to be spent with loved ones and thus in the process also give sometime for oneself.

Tajdar Amrohi, son of eminent filmmaker Kamal Amrohi briefing the media said, “There are many misconceptions regarding Choti Ammi (Meena Kuamri) amongst the people. Hence through the film I wish to remove these misconceptions and present a true story which I know because I have grown in her lap and have seen my father and Choti Ammi’s relation from close quarters.” 

Elaborating on the myths circulated among the people regarding Meena Kumari, Tajdar said, “There are rumors that Choti Ammi took to liquor in dejection after she was robbed of being a mother but the truth is that Choti Ammi had conceived twice but aborted herself due to her personal reasons.” 

Amrohi is confident that the film will put many questions to rest, “I am going to put the truth across in this film. These misconceptions need to be erased,” he said.

Tajdar Amrohi initially wanted eminent director J P Dutta, who made hits like GULAMI, BORDER, REFUGEE etc. to make the movie but as J P Dutt is busy making his own home production, hence he settled for Shashilal Nair. 

In fact Tajdar Amrohi’s obsession for Nair is so intense that he has brought him from Manchester. Tajdar says, “I like the work ethics of south Indian filmmakers, and have been a great fan of Shashi’s films like ANGAAR and GRAHAN.” He added, “I have known Shashlilal Nair for years but we lost touch. I didn’t know where he was in England. Still, I managed to track him down in Manchester and insisted that he accompany me back to India. He came back and we started work on the project immediately.” 

Tajdar claims there will be four actresses playing Meena Kumari, from age six to 39, when she passed away.
