Any Tamil movie fan will be familiar with Lalitha Kamalam of Unnal Mudiyum Thambi. Did you know that there was a song in the movie on the same raga, Lalitha?

Idhazhil Kadhai Ezhudhum Neramidhu … which exudes the genius of Ilayaraja in every phrase ๐Ÿ™‚

Lalitha belongs to the the Mayamalava Gowla janya (15) with the scale as –

Aarohanam: S R G M D N S
Avarohanam: S N D M G R S

There is just one song that I am aware of in this ragam – Hiranmayeem Lakshmeem by Muthuswamy Dikshitar.

Another song I chanced upon, Nannu Brova by Syama Sastri. Find below a video clip by TN Seshagopalan.
