Does Paamaran want IR to make a World Tour raising money for the poor/downtrodden of TN/India ?
A very good idea. But did IR ever read this article ? I feel now that IR has grown big, he is obliged to make TN/Indian music popular among the rest of the world. He has gained enough financially and emotionally from the people of TN. Now he should do something to make our music popular across the seas. He is the most capable person I can think of. If RaviShankar, Zakir Hussain and Nusrat Fateh ALi Khan can get an audience outside even IR can. If he has to change the format of his music (eg. drop lyrics) so be it.
(Compare this to other Music Directors vending foreign music in TN to make money)

IR is such a great maestro enpathu marukka mudiyatha oru unmai.However,he was over shadowed by Rehman only b'cas of Rahman's recording quality. As the latter used some latest equipments he was able to do it quite easily.But no doubt rehman also gives some great incredible tunes. But after hearing to some of the G.Ramanathan songs i feel that illiaraja is greatly influenced by G.R and has adopted lots of ragams in film music as adoptd by G.R. But the way IR gices the interludes for a song & the way he has handled violins & flute I think no body on earth has handled it so far as he has done.He is a real immortal & it is unbeleivable that a person from a village origin has produced such a great music so far.my pranams to that maestro. Long live IR

I didn't get a chance to read your letter to KB. But IMO, if someone in this world, who has got more rewards for what he deserves, then it is KB and KB only. Barring movies like Unnal Mudiyum Thambi, Thanneer Thanneer, and few more to add, he has not given a clean movie. All his movies will be "kochai"fying relationships. If i start to site some examples, then i will end up in writing a thesis on it. All i am wondering is can't he think straight? Can't he make movies that people can sit with their families and watch? In simple words can't he make a good movie? I am very much doubting his standards. How come anyone with these kinda talents is considered as the "iyakunar sigaram"? Is that means there are no talents in tamil film industry? No it is not the truth. When people like mahendran etc., are not geting their due credits, how come KB is still considered as a great(???!!!) director? People has hyped him very much and made him a big guy. If we had continued to support him he might have made movies equal in standard to the typical shakila kinda movies. Thank God!!!

A MESSAGE TO ALL IR FANS.
ARR destroyed IR's career is a fact, in the last 10 years how many albums of IR beat ARR in the sales.
Kadulu mariyathai sold well. So was Sethu.
How many songs in friends were good?
Remember the Kumudam article by Kalaipuli thanu he said Kamal wanted to sell the music of Abhay to a particular company because they paid for Hey ram and it didn't sell well, he even showed the 500 rs advance that the music company gave Thanu.
Poor IR couldnt do well in a period film but ARR gave a similar period film Laagan soul stirring music that sold like hot cakes all over India and the world.
After a brilliant Thalapathy, IR should have been offered hindi film music, i don't know why nobody offered IR a decent good budget hindi film.
probably they thought he cant do it.
Water finds its own level, similarly Talent cant be contained.
IR can never give hindi music with authenticity that ARR gave.
ARR graduated from TFM to HFM and now world music.
IR is still here in TFM.
IR did earn a lot of money till 92, so after that he should have done less work, make sure each song is heard everywhere, he should please both the masses and classes.
He didnt he was self obsessed with his music, that proved so bad to his career.
Manirathnam dropped him off after a great album like Thalapathy, Balachander doesnt work with him and so is his dear buddy Bharitiraja.
All the regulars with IR dumped him and his music, so after thalapathy a possible uprising graph went downwards, its going down every day which spoils his reputation.
Take an exaple of balu mahendra, his previous films like mundram pirai and eratai val kuruvi has good music but why did IR gave tunes like he did for raman abdullah and julee ganapathy.
Weren't the tunes of these two films show any class?
Why isn't IR unable to give the music he did in the past to Balu mahendra?
he lost his pace and creativity is for sure.
IR fans : dont talk about the few songs he gave in 10 years, if IR made 150 films in last ten years for example that is about 700-800 songs just citing 10-15 songs doesnt make any sense - realise.
IR has become a kanathu thavalai, all IR fans realise this but they are unable to bear it.
I feel sorry for them.
Kamal says IR is the best but why did Kamal invite ARR to do the unity of light concert in chennai to raise funds for cancer institute? he could have asked IR to do the same but kamal being a good business man realises that IR hasnt given a great deal of superb tunes in the recent times and he is not a crowd puller. IR fans think about it.
This will show the true position of how IR is in TFM.
I read a post if society doesnt accept IR's music then they are missing something, let me tell you music is beyond any religion, even an uneducated man can tap his foot or hum to a good tune so if IR cannot produce great tunes in regular frequency people will forget him.
Remember the Titanic song - every night in my dreams, even uneducated persons were whistling that song - IR fans your reasons are just funny.
Talent finds its level - it can never be contained.
IR fans dont find lame excuses - your brains will accept it but not your heart.
AHA I WHENEVER I CREATE THIS TOPIC IT VANISHES - TFM MODERATOR THIS IS NOT FAIR.
SO I AM SORRY TO SPREAD THIS MESSAGE FOR NOT ALLOWING ME TO CREATE THE TOPIC.
