    Thank you very much Krishnan!

    Alot of journalists and commoners make this mistake that thalaivar has a certain image of composing folkish western classical melodies. They seriously need to go through all his songs and will realize the number of genres and styles he has adapted into his own style which sounds so simple when heard together yet incredible complex when you try to break apart the composition to understand the nuances.

    But at the same time this "image" happens because the directors of yesteryears only approached him for the same script and situation and mostly asked for the same type of 80s songs from him. Thankfully, thalaivar is much more choosy with the scripts and as a result, he has alot of interesting situations to compose for. Shamitabh and Neethane Ponvasantham are two very good examples of what he can do if you give him a different script and situation.

    That's a surprise new movie! Trailer available at https://www.facebook.com/Loveandloveonly.Movie . Curious to see what genre of songs IR has come up with. Not sure how much of an exposure will the movie get. Anyway, hoping for the best.

    thanks,

    Krishnan
