Parthiban Kanavu is one of my favorite movies, and as a consequence (or probably, because) it is one of the most quotable movies. The absolute best is a line from “Nagesh” Krishnamurthy, where he tries to pacify his grandson, Srikanth, who is ranting at his wife singing a Carnatic kriti: “ஏன்டா, உனக்கு கோபம் சங்கீதத்து மேலயா? இல்லை, சம்சாரத்து மேலயா?”
On an unrelated note, I chanced upon this video. J.P. Chandrababu, in the guise of a woman, sings Sudhdhananda Bharati’s “Eppadi Paadinaro” in Western style. A riot!
