The Rahman-Vairamuthu combination gave us some of the greatest hits in the 90s, songs like Uyire (Bombay), Kannukku Mai Azhagu (Pudhiya Mugam), and Puttham Pudhu Bhoomi (Thiruda Thiruda). This movie (Indira) is yet another melodious album from these two great men, with Vairamuthu doing complete poetic justice to ARR's wonderful tunes.

Though the movie didn't do very well, the songs were an instant hit. ARR was at his prime then, and songs like Nila Kaigiradhu and Thoda Thoda from this album are simply amazing. Here is my attempt at Nila Kaigiradhu, originally sung by Hariharan.

Some songs leave a deep impression on you..One just feel like singing and singing and listning to this.
Nila kaigirathu
Nirem theigirathu
Yaarum rasikevilaiyea
Intha kangal mattum unnai kaanum
The moon is out, shining
Night time is fading
Nobody is enjoying it
These (my) eyes alone, see you
Thendral pogindrathu
Solai sirikindrathu
Yaarum suhikavilaiyea
Chinna kaigal matoom unnai theendoom
The breeze is blowing
The oasis-havens are smiling
No one is enjoying it
Just these (my) small hands will touch you
Katru veesum veiyil kaayum kaayum
Athil maatram ethum ilaiyea
Ah…Vaanum mannum nammai vazha chollum
Antha vaazhthu oiyavillai enendroom vaanil
The wind will blow, the sun will shine on
There is no change in those things
The sky and earth will tell us to live
Those good wishes will not stop, ever. In the sky
(The moon)
Atho pogindrathu aasai megam
Mazhayai keatu kolungal
Itho kaetkindradhu kuyilil paadal
Isaiyai keatukolungal
There is passing, a wish-cloud
Ask for the rain
Here, you can hear the cuckoo’s singing
Hear the music of it
Intha boomiyea poovanam
Unggal pookalai thaedungal
Intha vaazhkeiyea seethanam
Unggal theivaiyei keallungal
This earth is a flower garden
Look for your flowers
This life is a gift
Ask from it what you need
(The moon)
