Favorite Rajni Song Sequences - 9

Unai Thaan Nitham... - Maappillai

This song is here more for nostalgia than anything else since I remember this as the first song that had Rajni execute fast dance steps convincingly. Until Maappillai came along, Rajni vs Kamal arguments usually had me reluctantly concede when it came to dancing. But after this song, I had something in my arsenal too. The song itself is rather ordinary but the picturization rocks. Rajni and a gorgeous Amala execute some nice steps(particularly in the police dresses and the white and yellow dresses) and after the start in the police dresses(which made sense considering the dialog leading upto the song), the color coordination between the sets, props(like the bikes) and the lead pair's dresses in each of the segments is very eye-catching.

Thants an interesting picturization for the bbday star. let me guess some from the list

1. Rakkamma (but ofcourse!)
2. Athiradi
3. Thillana thillana
4. Amma endrazhaikkatha
5. Kick Yeruthey or Va Vaa ramaiyya
6. Naan autokaaran (if no ramaiyya song :)
7. Minsaara kanna (Bad song, and Rajni in something like a chudidr kameez(!!) but grand sets!)

Thank you for this one, Balaji. Brought back memories of seeing the film in good, ol' Alankar theatre in what seems like another lifetime :-) Baradwaj

balaji, as much as you are convincing, i cant help wondering if its the pairing of superstar and your favourtite actress amala in a fast number that resulted in this song appearing in the list

Grrrrrr.. Vetri nichayam? (vandenda paal kaaran might have been more appropriate!)

Not happy with Maadathile..I rank the song average, but then its your blog :) I thot Thillana would be there for sure!! music, dance, catchy lyrics, amazing set and decent dancing fm Rajini!

Endukkura Ra-ra!:( It was Jyotika's song, too less of Rajini to qualify even if it was effective:)

Raaman andaalum/ Kaathalin Deepam/ Unnaithaan were very pleasant additions to the list indeed.

anon, that was defly one of the reasons :)

raj, i think so :)

shwetha, i love 'vandhenda paalkaaran' too but the appearance of the old rajni is the clincher for 'vettri nichayam'.

KSR's obsession with meena's waist kinda spoilt 'thillana thillana' for me :)
