Pompous self-referential songs in Tamil Films.

Kamal
Ulaga Nayagan in Dasavatharam.
Sakalakala Vallavan in Sakalakala Vallavan.
Azhwarpettai Andava in Vassool Raja MBBS.

Please feel free to add to this list. One wonders, who instructs the lyricist to churn such panegyric muck.

  • Lots of Vijay and Rajnikanth have such references.. Kuruvi's Happy New Year reeled out all Vijay movie names...

  • I'm not sure if Ilayaraaja had anything to do with these, but they are references to him for sure:
    1. "Puthu raagam padaipathaale, naanum Iraivane" - Madai Thiranthu from Nizhalgal
    2. "Raagangal Thaalangal Nooru, Raaja un paer sollum paaru" - Valai Osai from Sathya

  • Ilayaraja is well known for these types of lyrics. If you sift enough, you can find atleast 100 just for Ilayaraja.

    ARR has also started this. "6.5 kodi pergalil oruvan....adiyen thamizhan, naan undhan nanban"
