GA is doing some show on Sun TV it seems


When did Amaran turn lyricist?

“Before Ilaiyaraaja began to play on the harmonium. Originally He he used to create tunes for lines of popular songs. That was when I would give him my lyrics and suggest that he compose music for them. Thus we stored a lot of compositions in our mind and drew from them when required.” Amaran wrote the popular song, ‘Vaigaraiyil Vaigai Karaiyil,’ when he was just 14 and ‘Andhapurathil Oru Maharani,’ at 15! “As I talk to you I wonder, ‘was it I who wrote them?’”

This lyricist of nearly 500 Ilaiyaraaja films, which translates into around 1,200 songs, besides songs for other musicians, and composer for nearly 200 films, which include all-time hits such as, Kamal Haasan’s Vazhvey Maayam, is modest about his achievements.
...
...
Amaran and brother Ilaiyaraaja were in M.S. Subbulakshmi’s house to invite her for a family wedding. “She welcomed them with a smile and told Ilaiyaraaja, ‘My day begins only with your song. What a composition!”
“Which song?” asked Ilaiyaraaja.
“‘Malar Pola Malargindra …’”
The popular devotional piece was composed by Gangai Amaran for the album he brought out on the Pondicherry Mother. “Ilaiyaraja said, ‘That’s not mine. It was composed by Amar.’ But I was already on cloud nine! My life has been a blessing right through. I believe God works more for my well-being than I do.”
...
...
“Ilaiyaraaja and I may not always be on the best of terms, but the affection we share is intact. Even today, when the young participants tots of Sun Singer, or my friends abroad, wish to meet him, I call up, and however busy he is, he gives them appointments and greets them warmly. My respect for him and his music will always remain.”

In the KTV show for chithiraiyil nilAchchORu, R Sundarrajan openly states that he was not confident of GA writing a climax song Laughing

IR forced him to use 'vaigaraiyil vaigai karaiyil' Smile

Was discussing with a friend on twitter on GA penned IR composed number and since he had doubts and mistook a few GA songs for Vaali, did a playlist with 58 of the best/most popular songs GA wrote for IR:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?feature=edit_ok&list=PLn4GJpNVAHex-BOgiP11QWqCcoPrVtCoU

4 hours. Enjoy at leisure. Also, this list is living proof that GA the lyricist is underrated and shall live on, unsung.

எங்களுடைய வளர்ச்சிக்கு பாரதிராஜா உதவியாக இருந்ததை போல, அவருடைய வளர்ச்சிக்கு நாங்களும் உதவியாகத்தான் இருந்தோம்.

இப்போ இளையராஜா மாதிரியே அவரும் போஸ் கொடுக்க ஆரம்பிச்சிட்டார். மனிதர்களை மனிதர்களாக மதிக்கத் தெரியாத அவர்களை, என் மனதில் இருந்து தூக்கியெறிந்துவிட்டேன்.

Part 2 here, once again in Pavalar Shiva's FB page :
https://www.facebook.com/pavalar.shiva/posts/779723215471289

This FB page seems to be a much better resource than many other places for "insider" information Wink

For e.g. there's a post that IR attended (Sabesh) Murali's family wedding and blessed the couple. 
(Murali = MD Deva's brother)

There's also a picture of GA and Deva dining together (same table) on this occasion.

Definitely some page to visit once in a while Smile

This seems to be more frequent than a weekly...

There are already 7 parts in that FB page.

In any case, here is Part 6 Smile

This talks about how annakkiLi became a "late pick-up success", how 3 members of VK's troupe didn't care for annakkiLi but later landed in IR's team and worked with him for years...

Part 7

Here GA talks about how they never thought of "overtaking" MSV / S-G / VK et al, who were on the top at that time! They simply wanted to have their own projects / life / survival etc.

censor board member gives interview to The Hindu


By the time the brothers stepped in to the industry, they knew what the audience expected of them. They lived an ordinary life and understood what common people like to watch and listen. They started with folk music and later picked up western music. “We wanted to do music for the masses. Ilayaraja gave the classical touch to his folk compositions and sensitised people to the nuances of classical music. For instance, the song ‘Yeh, Aatha, Athorama Variya’ from the movie ‘ Payanangal Mudivathillai ’ sounds like a folk music but it has the classical touch,” he says.

IR v/s ARR it seems, the worst comparison that can be made...

I wonder shouldn't this kind of program come under "royalty" surveillance... Wink

Renamed the thread to show my irritation towards Amar taking an anti-IR side (even for fun, how can a thambi do such nonsense on such a sensitive topic? First of all, how can IR be compared with a person having < 1% of his talent?)

Anyways, this is apt due to a few reasons :

- யாரும் கண்டுக்காம இருந்தப்ப இவரை நாம தான் "கூவிக்கூவி" வித்தோம்.

- எப்போதும் உரக்கக் கூவுவது அவரோட பழக்கம் தானே, அமர் கூவுறது கூவியம் என அழைக்கப்படும்

- அவரோட முதல் படம் (இயக்கம்) கோழி கூவுது தானே?

This website has published the text of that audio conversation (pretty much verbatim) :

http://www.vivegamnews.com/Page.aspx?id=22418

The most annoying thing is this :


அவருக்கு தம்பியா பிறந்ததால் எல்லாருக்கும் பதில் சொல்ல வேன்டியிருக்கு.

Nonsense. 

If not for that relationship, one can't say if this fellow would have really been in the limelight today.

As a member of the ruling political party of central gov / censor board / award committee etc., GA definitely has the right to criticize IR's decision (not to accept the award) and also defend their post-2010 award structure of "separate for songs & OST".

That is definitely in order.

However, getting into mudslinging like "not mahAn" "not appreciating next gen" "recycled tune cannot be awarded" etc are totally unwarranted in this conversation. Those are outright irresponsible uLaRals.

And he caps them all with the "thambiyA irundhu tholaippadhAl" kind of pulambal nonsense. 

I'm with the tweets of Nerd / MayilSK and others - that, with this, GA is proving to be worse than other rAsA-enemies (like VM) Embarassed

//Self Plug from FB//

Why is it hard for us to digest that every individual has a right to his opinion in a civil society?

So does Amaran (response)

My response back...

Totally agreed. However, what is in play here is the media turning a house fire into a Fort Mac. Now that you think GA has the right to speak like this, let me give you some background. Before that, though I have researched Raja's music for years, I do not share his opinion about how these awards must be given.

In 2011, the award was created for BGMs in India and Raja won it for Pazhassi Raja (Malayalam). However, Raja did not accept that award by going to Delhi. It was delivered to him He was of the same opinion then and now - he is consistent. Ousepechchan won the award in 2011, if I remember correctly. That is what I mean by 'right to his opinion'.

Raja did not say that anything is wrong with M.Jayachandran getting the award. He just voiced his opinion and also cemented this by writing a letter to the I&B ministry.

When the govt gave him the Padma Bhushan, he had no issues accepting it and when the same I&B Ministry gave him the award for lifetime achievement in music award, he had no issues. He has an issue with this method of awarding in two categories.  He has a right to voice his opinion as he is an affected party.

See how GA falls into the media play. I would have respected his views had he stuck to only the awards issue. He goes on a personal attack on his brother which is outside the issue. He throws his own interpretation of why Raja said what he said - this is the stupid mindset, where he gives in to his emotions. Raja did not say that young people should not be awarded or Jayachandran does not deserve it. Those were GA's words. He went on to criticizing TT's music which was not the point at all.

GA suffers from insomnia as he does not seem to remember his own brother's stand from 2011. Also, in a previous interview to the same media, he said that 'Kaatril Varum Geethame' and NEPV were the only worthwhile songs of Raja in the last 16 years.

You can hate Raja to the core, but you will find that GA has a personal agenda here and not any true musical one...

//End of Self Plug//

Now, it's not just on a kuppai website like India Glitz - it's also there on The Hindu

The comments below give some insight as to how idiotic a good % of today's indhu paper readers are. 

The conspiracy gumbal against IR,doing propaganda since 1991 or so, had partly succeeded in making a good % of public believe that IR's serukku > IR's thiRami.

நல்லா இருக்கட்டும்.
