Namaste,

This is Songs list  Vol. 6. Sorry, the posting of the article got delayed due 
to some unforeseen circumstances. This time I am focussing on movies for which 
ghanTasAla is the music director. Before listing the songs I would like to say 
that, at this point of time it is difficult for me to list other songs from a 
film. Even for movies for which G is the music director, I do not have them 
listed any where. However, as much as possible, if there are any popular songs 
which I can remember from a movie for which G is the music director, I will 
include in the article. Thanks rAmanna gAru for the suggestion.

susiila)
32. hailessA hailo hailessA aahaa aahaa. pongAre nadipaina naDipinchu nAvA

A surprise to me in this movie is: The movie starts with a song in a village 
in which mAdhavapeddi sings for NTR!. 
mAdhavapeddi also sang another song in the movie. A popular song and a very 
nice one too from this movie is

"dharaNiki giri bhAramA? giriki taruvu bhAramA?
taruvuku kAya bhAramA? kanipenche talliki pilla bhAramA?" 
 Who sang this song? who wrote it? Of course G is music director. 
Is this by any chance a traditional song and tune? (pardon my ignorance.)

In my last article I mentioned that I will list a song which as per the record 
has G and mangalampalli together.
I will post the songs from this movie another time. But for now, let me state 
that the movie is "viirAnjanEya"
The song is "Srii krishNa krishNa gOpAla bAla krishNa." Probably to the 
disappointment of Sreenivas, I should say that
while mangalampalli and PBS start the song with the above pallavi, G cuts in 
singing, "SriirAma rAma siitamanObhi rAma".
(in the same way as in "nidura pora tammuDa" in santAnam when G cuts in while 
lata mangEshkar is singing.)
(I wiill post the details of number of songs next time.)

Once again, please do not attach the complete mail to a reply. Please.

Surayam gAru, mOhan gAru, 
Did you get the personal mail that I sent to you.  Please do let me know. 
Thanks.

Regards,
