Here’s the biggest sensation awaited by all ardent fans of the all time musical legend Ilayaraja.
For the first time, you will watch a song featuring Ilayaraja himself on the screens. It’s all for his forthcoming film Azhagar Malai featuring RK and Thamirabharani fame Bhanu in the lead roles.
Maestro Ilayaraja has scored a spellbinding tune for the following lyrics
Uzhagam ippo enga poguthu…
ennaku intha annai boomi pothum
ingu piranthavarum engae pogirar
ennaku intha sontha naadu pothum
intha mannai vittu naan engae selvain…
The maestro himself croons this melody in this movie by director SP Rajkumar and producer Sangili Murugan.
The complete song has been visualized from retrospective point view of the maestro himself. For instance, the song will have Ilayaraja in white costumes moving through places that evoke his nostalgic memories. Likewise, his mother’s cemetery, a specific banyan tree where he played around with his wife, his regular road to Thiruvannamalai’s Ramana Ashram, his school and American College of Madurai where he became a graduate.
Of course, the lanes to Thiruvannamalai where he walks without any footwear have also been pictured.
The entire team was moved when they witnessed the enchanting simplicity of Ilayaraja. He traveled to the shooting spots in his own car. Moreover, the entire crew was astonished with his professionalism in carrying out each gestures on the screen.
Filmmaker Rajkumar has earnestly thanked producer Sangili Murugan for turning his dream ideas into reality!
