Pattammal sang for more AVM films besides "Nam Iruvar". Those were
“Vethala Ulagam” (1948) , “ Vazhkai” (1949) and " Rama Rajyam"(1948)." Vethala Ulagam" was based on fantasy -play by the founding father of
the Renaissance of Tamil theater, Pammal Sambandam Mudaliar. Pattammal sang two melodious songs both
written by Mahakavi Subramanian Bharathiyar.
One song was "Thoondir Puzhvinaipol Sudarvilakkinaipol " which has
been popular for years before it was used in this film. It is in this
song the following famous lines occur.....
Paalum Kasanthathadee Sakhiyey Padukkai Nonthathadee Kolakili
Mozhiuyum Seviyil Kutthal Eduthathadee!
The other song was the more popular "Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai..!.
The excellent seemingly effortless singing style of Pattammal and the
bewitching dancing by 'Baby' Kamala elevated the last scene in the
film to great aesthetic heights. This scene was hand-tinted frame by
frame and in many cinemas it was screened in color!
AV. Meiyappan dubbed the super hit Hindi film, "Ram Rajya" in Tamil.
In an innovative move he added a prelude to the film, the popular song
sung by Pattammal describing the main events of the epic, '
Ramayanam', "Enakkun Irupatham Ninaikka .." As she sang, the events
were shown on screen as 'shadow play' (silhouette ), a novelty in
cinema of that day. Pattammal sang in ragas, Kedharagowla,
Shanmughapriya, Bilahari, Dhanyasi, Mayamalavagowla, and Mohanam.
Pattammal also sang in AVM's " Vazhkai" (1949) which introduced
Vyjayanthimala to movies with a bang. The film was a major hit of 1949
and Meiyappan remade it in Telugu ( as " Jeevitham") and Hindi ("
Bahar"). Vyjayanthimala attracted national attention and became a
multi-lingual star and never looked back. The talented Bharathanatyam
dancer executed a scintillating song and dance number, "Bharatha
Samudayam Vaazhgavey." written years ago by Bharathiyar and rendered by
Pattammal. The music composer was R Sudarsanam.
