    This is not a quiz, but I was just wondering a little bit of history on Ilayaraja's career! I was wondering if he started scoring music for other languages (Telugu, Malayalam, etc.) right when he started his career in Tamil in the late 70s itself, or later?

    Some info will greatly help!

    Bay, since IR was assistant to GKV for something like 100 movies, he was already familiar with all four fields of south (and a good % of movies were made in Madras for all four lang then too).

    That made his entry almost immediate into other three languages after the outbreak of annakkiLi. I think he has done a few movies in the other three languages in 77/78 timeframe itself.

    That's freakin awesome! This is a classic example for "Ignorance is Bliss" on my part. Because we've been hearing about how music directors of today are global, universal, and versatile in other languages, I had a cloud in my mind all this time that Ilayaraja was only confined to Tamil alone.

    But I came across so many Telugu songs of Ilayaraj from the 80s on Youtube, and hence became curious. Gosh, it feels like I have been exposed to a world of news here!

    Thanks...

    ok, his official website (raaja.com) talks about the telugu version of Badhrakali in 1977, vyAmOham (mal) & a kannada movie in 1978. After these "debut" films, there was a flow of movies in all southie languages.

    While he was giving quality stuff in malayalam field (and may be for some kannada films), his max success was with Thamizh / Telugu, where he scored for most top star / top banner movies in his hey days.

    I think the Telugu field took a major decision to move all work away from Chennai at some point of time and Raja's work for them got reduced a lot from that point. Obviously because he was not a travel freak even at peak.

    So good to know that a talent of IR's caliber was not confined to Tamil only!

    All the three songs have the same music in their 1 and 2 interludes, which is a rare thing in raja's music.

    Latest addition is 'kaatu vazhi kaal nadaya' song.
