Vaali’s lyrics ‘Kanmani Anbodu Kadhalan’, from the movie Guna released 33 years ago, symbolized the guna or essence of –  Eros – romantic love.

Lovers always talk to one another about their love; Friends hardly ever talk about their Friendship.  Lovers are normally looking face to face, absorbed in each other’s eyes;  Friends stand side by side, Shoulder to Shoulder, their eyes looking ahead…..

Orikkalum Theeraatha Iravundallo…  Koode Pirakkaathe Pirannavar Thunayundallo…
