The song titled “Medante Meda Kaadu” was from the 1967 hit Telugu movie Sukhadukhalu ( = Happiness and Sadness) Sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam. Music composed by S. P. Kodandapani to the Lyrics penned by Devulapalli Krishna Sastry.

Although SPB is a legend now, it wasn’t a cake walk for him to get to where he was. He had pretty big shoes of Ghantasala to fill-in, reluctance of actors and music directors to hire a new singer in place of a legend and also the competition from other upcoming singers. However luck must be on his side when he got a chance to sing for this movie. Story goes that Ghantasala gell ill on the Muhurat ( = Auspicious) day of the movie. Producers were sentimental of the day, so Kodandapani suggested for SPB to sing the song instead (who was working as Kodandapani’s assistant then). Everyone agreed, SPB sang and rest became history for this song. A beautiful melody that explains the meaning of a home and difference with a house.



Mote tidbits:

1) This movie got lot of attention for Vanisri and paved her way towards stardom.
2) Incidentally several of the leading artists had acted opposite Chandra Mohan in their beginning years. Perhaps he was their lucky charm or he inadvertently provided them the right ladder.

3) Lyrics in Romanized Telugu:

Medante Meda Kadu, Goodante Goodu Kadu
Padilanga Allukunna Podarillu Maadi
Podarillu Maadi

Medante Meda Kadu, Goodante Goodu Kadu
Padilanga Allukunna Podarillu Maadi
Podarillu Maadi

Nenaithe Aaku Komma, Taanaithe Vennella Vella
Nenaithe Aaku Komma, Taanaithe Vennella Vella
Padilanga Nesina Poosina Podarillu Maadi

Medante Meda Kadu, Goodante Goodu Kadu
Padilanga Allukunna Podarillu Maadi
Podarillu Maadi

Kovello Velige Deepam Devi Maa Talli
Kovello Tirige Paatala Guvva Na Chelli
Kovello Velige Deepam Devi Maa Talli
Kovello Tirige Paatala Guvva Na Chelli
Guvvante Guvva Kaadu, Goravanka Gaani
Vankante Vanka Kaadu, Nelavanka Gaani

Medante Meda Kadu, Goodante Goodu Kadu
Padilanga Allukunna Podarillu Maadi
Podarillu Maadi

Gorinka Pellaipothe, E Vanko Vellipothe
Gorinka Pellaipothe, E Vanko Vellipothe
Goodantha Gubulaipoda, Gundello Digulaipoda

Medante Meda Kadu, Goodante Goodu Kadu
Padilanga Allukunna Podarillu Maadi
Podarillu Maadi

4) Another beautiful song from this movie was pictured on Vanisri which was actually the one that got her into limelight. Titled “Idi Mallela Velayani” Sung by P. Susheela is another soft melody with a very deep meaning towards life and that though it isn’t rosy for this girl, yet doesn’t lose hope and makes the best of what life throws at her wishing for a better tomorrow.

I had read somewhere that the lyrics of the first line of the song were swapped by human error and unknowingly the music director composed the song the same way. Actual line was “Idi Vennela Masamani  Idi Mallela Velayani”. Despite the error the song went on to become a hit number aiding several of the crew’s futures.



Lyrics in Romanized Telugu:

Idi Mallela Velayani Idi Vennela Masamani
Tondarapadi Oka Koyila
Munde Kusindi Vindulu Chesindi

Kasire Yendalu Kalchunani, Musire Vanalu Munchunani
Ika Kasire Yendalu Kalchunani
Mari Musire Vanalu Munchunani
Yerugani Koyila Yegirindi
Yerugani Koyila Yegirindi, Virigina Rekkala Origindi
Nelaku Origindi

Idi Mallela Velayani Idi Vennela Masamani
Tondarapadi Oka Koyila
Munde Kusindi Vindulu Chesindi

Marigipoyedi Manava Hrudayam, Karuna Kaligedi Challani Daivam
Marigipoyedi Manava Hrudayam, Karuna Kaligedi Challani Daivam
Vade Lataku Yedurai Vachuvadani Vasanthamasam
Vasivadani Kusuma Vilasam

Idi Mallela Velayani Idi Vennela Masamani
Tondarapadi Oka Koyila
Munde Kusindi Vindulu Chesindi

Dwaraniki Taramanihaaram, Harathi Vennela Karpuram
Dwaraniki Taramanihaaram, Harathi Vennela Karpuram
Mosam Dwesham Leni Seemalo
Mosam Dwesham Leni Seemalo, Mogasala Niliche Ne Mandaram

Idi Mallela Velayani Idi Vennela Masamani
Tondarapadi Oka Koyila
Munde Kusindi Vindulu Chesindi
