For one thing, you shouldn't need to be root to run "realplay". Also, you have a space between "/" and "Alangati" that shouldn't be there. Another thing is that you need to escape the space between "Alangati" and "Mazhai", ie. it should be "Alangati\ Mazhai.mp3".

Try those and see what happens.

Also, PLEASE don't use rubbish thread titles like "Help me". They won't help you get helped any quicker and you're even told that they're bad titles when you post a thread.

In future please give your thread a more meaningful name (e.g. name your thread - how to play mp3 from shell). By the way. This way you will be able to find information in google, yahoo etc...
