Song: abishega nEraththil
Film: azhagE unnai ArAthikkiREn
Singers: SPB

I've resisted this song despite many requests only because it was quite an obvious choice. But every now and then it's good to go for a sure bet. While it sports all the elements that are endemically themmAngu, this song still has an urban flavor to it. Perhaps its the manic romp of beats that IR throws down here, perhaps its the frantic urban pace, perhaps its Vaali's split-down-the-middle lyrics that straddle all genres and defy every one, or perhaps its just SPB channeling the naughty pleasures of a voyeur. Whatever the charm, for a brief while we're all one and the same in arrested youth.

- Saravanan noted:

The film starred Latha, Vijayakumar, Jaiganesh and introduced Prakash and Subhashini, directed by Sridhar. It was a hit- I think I have seen a shield for the 'Velli Vizha' in one of the Abirami theatres-Chennai. Sridhar had turned to Illayaraja in 1978, and gave the super hit-Ilamai Oonjalaadugirathu and all the lyrics were by Vaali for the first time in an IR film. This Sridhar-IR-Vaali combo continued in AUA. In spite of the stupendous success of the songs of these two films, Sridhar went to Vijabhaskar for his next film-Soundaryamey Varuga Varuga-1980. Though the songs were great, the film crashed.
