Your opinion on the movie?
He never disappoints us with his score. I always wonder where this genius gets his creative juices from!
He is THE one for Background Score!!
The movie is right up there with Mahanadi on my list of the greatest, even “unsurpassable” Tamil movies ever.
yup..on any day..raja rajathaan..the emperor of music..
exactly…its one movie which cannot be classified under any genres..and ilayaraja raised the movie to the next level which is unthinkable in the tamil movies which ever we have seen….He is the genius to me in the lines of the geniuses of yesteryear s like Ramanujam(Maths),Bharathiyar…
Since the previous comment mentions Ramanujan, I should add that Ilayaraja had been approached for contributing to the the movie “The Man Who Knew Infinity”, Ramanujan’s Bio-epic based on the book by the same title by Robert Kanigel. British actor, writer, director and Poly-math Stephen Fry and ace Indian Director Dev Benegal are going to direct the movie. That is what we were told in 2006. They still haven’t even finalized the cast and the team. If Ilayaraja does take up the project, he will have to work with one of the best British composers. Considering the fact that he has done that before and even studied at Trinity, albeit a different one, I don’t think it should be much of a problem. If Ilayaraja is the musician for this beautiful Mathematics epic, Ramanujan was the Mathematician behind the Music.
