Hi 116,

It is SriSri only who has penned down the lyrics of the title song in kurukshEtram. Earlier you convinced me that it was mahAradhi.

The last night, I watched the DVD and was alert during the titles. Screenplay (chitrAnuvAdamu) was by Samudrala Jr, Dialogues by mahAradhi and songs by SriSri, CiNaRe, Dasaradhi etc. I did not see mahAradhi's name in the lyricists' list.

Balu once talked high about a romantic song that comes on Sreekrishnudu. But the darn DVD.. it doesn't have that song

BTW, Jaya Malini really looked like a dEva kanya in DVS Karna in the maya sabha song. But in kurukshEtram, Jyothi Lakshmi had a song in the similar context and man.. she looked very obese and old. I wonder how they casted her in that dancer role. At least Halam could have been better in that role.

The title song in Kurukshetram was by Sri Sri only. There is an extended version of this song that I heard only rarely. In that version, it even talks about how Drona was killed "...aswatthama hatah...kunjarah...." etc. When Balu sings "kunjarah" he suddenly drops his voice, the way Dharmaraju supposedly did.

The romantic song for Srikrshindudu picturized on Sobhan and Latha (satyabhama) goes like "alakala...kulukula...alivenee....bhamamani...satyabhamamani..."

Thanks Hanuman for this reminding this duet.

Alukala kulukula aliveni priya bhaamaamani sathyabhaamaamani

is a superb song but not like Mrogindhi kalyaanaveena or harivillu virisindhi which will be felt as hits on first hearing itself.  One has to hear the song repeatedly to know the exact sweetness of Saluri vaari ee paata.  As the song goes on, the melodius beat (BGM) goes to high pitch and that will be mindblowing (As I saw the film 19 times in theater, I could get that. There is no guarantee that others may get the same feeling).

In "endarO mahAnubhAvulu" program (2000 or so), Balu was talking about the music sittings on this alakala, kulukula song and was metnioning the "sangatulu" by sAlUri vAru in that song. Undoubtedly, mrOgindi kalyANa veeNa is the most popular song in the movie.

If any one has this song, alaklala, kulukula song, pl. send it to me at chimata.music@gmail.com

Thanks,
Srini

That song about Dronacharya is not an extension of the title track, but rather a separate verse. It is included on the Kuruskshetramu DVD. However, I don't recall seeing any song song picturized on Shoban as Krishna in the film.

Srini, a good quality file of the song can be found here:

Direct download
http://m3.lisanym.com/telugu/Kurukshetram%20(1977)/02%20Alukala%20Kulukula.mp3

Can anyone confirm that this Alakala Kulukala song does not just appear on the soundtrack but also in the film as well? The DVD copy I rented did not have it anywhere.

You would think that either the casting director would chose someone else for the role, or Jyoti Lakshmi would watch her weight as a dancer but no. Only in the South would something like this fly. There's no way an item number would feature such a chubby dancer with ginormous hips and thunder thighs in a North Indian film, unless it was as a joke. No wonder the entire song seems to have been scrapped from the Hindi dubbed version, Kurukshetra (1977).
