The beautiful song "Kakkai Chiraginile" sung by KJY was composed by ____________

L. Vaidyanathan. This song is from the film Ezhavathu Manidhan, which featured songs all of which were written by Bharathiyaar. The film was directed by K. Hariharan, who is now a noted film academician. Raghuvaran played the lead role and, I believe, this was his debut.

L. Vaidyanathan also worked for a few other offbeat films like Pesum Padam (Pushpak) [1], Sandhya Raagam and Marupakkam.

[1] - L. Subramaniam, his younger brother, worked with Kamal Haasan in Hey! Ram, before he dropped out of it in the middle.

  • One of the two - L.V or L.S - also composed music for 'Lottery Ticket' starring Mohan and Suhasini that was released sometime during 1982-83. It had a nice song as well - 'Kannil vanthaai nenjil ninraai nee' written by Muthulingam.
