Best Music Directors in Tamil Industry

studio.jpgI know there are thousands of musicians out there who have composed musical pieces that anyone would love to hear over and over again. Coming from Chennai, India I have grown up listening to mostly cinema music, especially Tamil songs!!! I have to talk about two the most famous music directors of all time in the Tamil Industry (Kollywood). They have created some of the best music one can ever listen. No matter how many times you keep listening to it over and over again, you are not going to get bored. They just take me on an amazing journey every time I listen to them.

It’s just amazing how music can totally take you to a different world!!! I listen to all kinds of music and off late have also started listening to heavy metal. But may be because I have always been listening to Tamil songs, I feel that its one of the best music one should listen to. I will say that there are many Hindi songs too that are brilliantly composed. In Hindi one can find more variety as there are many upcoming artists and album songs that are equally good like the movie songs. To say, in Hindi I see more and more new talents coming up and doing their album which is great. I wish that could happen in Tamil as well where more individual artists or bands come up with good, quality music and show their talent and music to the whole world. Another kind music that I have started listening off late is Sinhalese. I have not heard so much but I am really enjoying the way they portray music. Its really nice that there are many young music directors that are coming up too like G.V.Prakash.

Hence the two biggest Music Directors in Tamil Industry are non other than the great Maestro Ilayaraja and the unbeatable A.R.Rahman. These two have not just contributed to Tamil industry. Their music has no bounds. They have touched thousands and thousands of people with their music and the fans just keep getting bigger. They have not only composed music for films but have also composed for various other purposes. A.R.Rahman has composed tunes for raising charity, for Taj Mahal and the like. the following two posts will talk about each of them, little bit in detail about their background and how they started off to reach where they are now!!! Few other good music composers are Harris Jayaraj, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Preetam, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Deva, Vidya Sagar, Vishal-Sekhar, Ismail Darbar etc.

Rajinikanth Next Movie!!!! ROBOT… renamed to Eyanthra

I am sooooo excited about this movie as I am a die hard fan of Super Star Rajini Kanth . The same big names who were involved in Sivaji are ready for the never before made Sci-Fi thriller in Tamil industry. Shankar, Rajinikanth and A.R.Rahman have come together for the second time to make Shankar’s dream project come true. Looks like the budget for the movie is even bigger than Sivaji which was close to Rs. 30 Crores (I’m guessing!!) . I am thinking close to 50 crores for sure for this movie. This movie had many heroes before Shankar finally announced that Rajinikanth will be the male lead. Some of the names where Shahrukh Khan, Kamal Hassan, Vikram etc. Same was the case with the heroin and as far I have heard, looks like Aishwarys Rai will be the female lead for the movie after Nayanthara and other big names.

Ayngaran and Eros International will produce the film. The rest of the crew is yet to be decided. Hope this will set a landmark for the Tamil Industry and make it big across the world not just financially but also quality vise. News says that this movie is going to be released simultaneously in Hindi , Telugu and others. I am not going to expect too much but hope its bigger than Sivaji in every way.

All the best to the crew and for the success of the movie!!!!!

I shall keep updating this as I get to know more!!!
