what is this film 'Rajaraja Chozanin Porvaal'?

Some low-bud movie with a TFM lyricist acting as hero (his name is Snehan).

There was this hype of IR composing a song in front of public, for this movie.
(In a temple in the city of Karur in TN).

Touring Talkies audio did not release. Probably if it enters Oscars race, it might.

And I think the other two hindi films - SRK and Happi will rest in cans.

Rudrama Devi and Prakash Raj films are the only two projects on which I have some hope.

This could be another movie that will generate some buzz (Kannada / Thamizh multilingual as told earlier):
http://tamil.oneindia.in/movies/news/ilayaraaja-composes-movie-on-isaipriyas-life-190964.html


Porkalathil Oru Poo is the movie based on Eelam artist Isaipriya's life story and Maestro Ilayaraja scores for the movie.

The link says: Based on a story penned by Usha Datar, the film is a love saga set in the 1930-1950s in Konkan. It revolves around the turbulence faced by a Brahmin family when their young widowed daughter-in-law falls in love with her older brother-in-law.


If this film really gets made (more importantly, if the audio really gets released), I expect some beautiful compositions here, given the backdrop.

Reliving the Mahatma


What would have been the story of India had Mahatma Gandhi’s vision for her not been cut-short by three menacing bullets from Nathuram Godse’s pistol on 30 January, 1948, as he was headed to a prayer meet at Birla House in New Delhi? The ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ on what this country could have been fated for and what it has come to be anguish many and of those, filmmaker A Balakrishnan feels compelled to put forth his views through a film. To be released worldwide this January 30 in almost ‘100 cities including London and New York’, Welcome Back Gandhi explores how Gandhism would have worked in today’s times.
...
...
Welcome Back Gandhi was shot within 40 days, mostly in Chennai, and on a tight budget of `3 crore despite the fact that celebrated talents like Anupam Kher and music director Ilayaraja are associated with it. “Anupam Kher was so charmed by the concept that he charged a nominal fee. Ilayaraja, too, accepted fees only for recording,” says Balakrishnan who associates the long journey from 2006 to the film’s imminent release later this month as indicative of the pains of filmmaking.

Review of Touring Talkies by Hollywood Reporter


The songs on the soundtrack, not performed by the actors but simply accompanying the images, are a dime a dozen. However, the score by veteran composer Ilayaraja, another Jai Hind alumnus, cleverly plays on the film’s tradition-versus-modernity theme and Amol Gole’s cinematography makes good use of the countryside locations.

India Glitz says Bala is going to IR because GVP is busy playing hero and not available for music direction


It is old news that Bala's next film will have Actor turned Director and Producer Sasikumar playing the lead role. Initially it was told that G.V.P will be composing the music for this film. However the young composer has backed from the project since he is busy with the film Pencil in which he is making his debut as a lead actor. This apparently has paved way to the much desired reunion of Raja and Bala Sources closed to the untitled flick say that the senior Raja may give a nod to work with Bala if all things goes well.

Lets keep our fingers crossed.

It is தாரை தப்பட்டை and not கரகாட்டம்


இப்படத்தில் சசிகுமார் நாதஸ்வர வித்வானாகவும், வரலெட்சுமி கரகாட்ட கலைஞராகவும் நடிக்க இருக்கிறார்கள்.

இப்படத்திற்கான பாடல்களை இளையராஜா முடித்து கொடுத்து விட்டார். இளையராஜா இசையமைப்பில் வெளிவரும் 1000வது படம் என்று செய்திகள் வெளிவந்த வண்ணம் உள்ளன. ஆனால், இளையராஜா தரப்பில் இருந்து இதுகுறித்து அதிகாரப்பூர்வமாக எதுவும் தெரிவிக்கவில்லை.

It would be nice if they also list what were 600, 700, 800 & 900 Wink

1 - annakkiLi
100 - moodupani
200 - Ayiram nilavE vA
300 - udhaya geetham
400 - nAyagan
500 - Anjali

  It requires an 'uncanny' director to ensure that the film sees the light of the day. Or else, it lies in the can!

This had been posted about sometime earlier - supposedly a movie based on real life story of Isaipriya, an Eezha Thamizh journalist who got tortured / killed by Srilankan army. Also read somewhere that its a Kannada-Thamizh bilingual or it is being made by a KA team (and not Chennai fellows) or something like that...

Low key release of 'oru oorla'

Though IR keeps churning out songs, many movies do not go to theaters nowadays...


Vasantha Kumar's Oru Oorla which happens to be Ilayaraja's 999th musical and Maareesh Kumar's Marumunai are the other two lesser known releases this week

+ve review for oru oorla


படத்தின் கருவான பாசத்தை, ரசிகர்கள் மனதில் ரொம்பவே அழுத்தமாக பதியவைத்துள்ளது இளையராஜாவின் இசை. பாடல்களிலும் சரி, பின்னணி இசையிலும் சரி படத்தை வேறு ஒரு தளத்திற்கு எடுத்துச் சென்றுவிட்டார் இளையராஜா. சமீத்திய இளையராஜாவின் இசையில் வெளியான படங்களில், இப்படத்திற்கு முதல் இடம் கொடுக்கலாம்.
...
...
நீண்ட நாட்களுக்குப் பிறகு தமிழ் சினிமாவில் ஒரு இயல்பான கதைக்கொண்ட படமாக இப்படம் வெளியாகியுள்ளது. படம் ஆரம்பித்து முடியும் வரை, ஒவ்வொரு காட்சிகளையும் இயல்பாக படமாக்கியுள்ளார் இயக்குநர் வசந்தகுமார்.

படத்தில் நாயகி இருந்தாலும், நாயகனுக்கும் அவருக்கும் இடையே எந்தவித காதலும் இல்லை, டூயட் பாடல்களும் இல்லை. இயக்குநர் எதை சொல்ல நினைத்தாரோ, அதை ரொம்பவே சிறப்பாக சொல்லியிருக்கிறார்.

காமெடிக்கு என்று தனி டிராக் இல்லாமல், படத்தில் நடித்த புதுமுகங்களே இயல்பாக காமெடி செய்திருக்கிறார்கள். டெங்கு காய்ச்சல் விழிப்புணர்வுக்காக கிராமத்தில் முகாமிடும் அந்த மருத்துவ பெண்மணியின் பேச்சும், அவர் பிரச்சாரம் செய்யும் விதமும் குலுங்க குலுங்க சிரிக்க வைக்கிறது.

முழுக்க முழுக்க புதுமுகங்களை வைத்துக்கொண்டு நேர்த்தியான திரைக்கதையோடு, ரசிக்குமடிபான காட்சிகளோடு உருவாகியிருக்கும் 'ஒரு ஊர்லா' பார்க்க வேண்டிய படம் தான்.

If Oru Oorla is 999th film, then Prakash Raj's film must be his 1000th film right. How come Bala's film is being touted as his 1000th film then?

As I keep repeating, 500th film was Anjali. On what basis no one knows. We know that he surely has done 900+ films. Depending on counting method(released films? Dubbed films counted? If unreleased films counted, how do you decide the order - recording date? audio release date?), the exact 500th film could be Anjali or some other one. It suited GV to advertise Anjali has 500th so he did.

Note that 3 of the landmarks are GV movies - Nayagan, Anjali, Thalapathy. It is not hard to dedce that marketing hyper GV decided that IR was close to 400/500/600(+ or -) and  simply usurped the number for his movies.
Not unsurprisingly, with Thalapathy GV left IR and after that, nobody doing IR films was savvy enough to claim landmark numbers.

Likewise, with the number close to 1000, looks like Bala put an early kerchief for hyping his movie as 1000th.
