Ilayaraja Copying His Own Song.
As commented by some, does Ilayaraja copy his own songs? I was little convinced with this argument for a while. Since I am a hardcore fan of Ilayaraja, I did some digging. I realized later that he does copy his own songs, but for a reason!
‘Shanbagame Shanbagame’ is my all time favorite Tamil song. As you watch this video, even if you don’t understand Tamil, you will agree with me that this is a love song.
Now, here is the song from Aa Okkati Adakku movie, ‘Pavurama Pavurama.’ In this, the same tune was composed as a sad song.
As he was stating in a recent audio function, he does get the tunes based on the director, situation and mood of the scene. He had thought that this tune is best suited for the situation and composed again the same tune in a sad mood.
Isn’t it a wonder to hear a same tune in two different moods? Enjoy!
