One film Wonders - Part 2

Manoj Bhatnagar: If someone remembers a Vijay movie called “Endrendrum Kaadhal” that released in late 90’s they will remember Manoj. It was supposed to be his comeback movie after a long time but both the film and its music sank without a trace. Nevertheless, the title song. Oh Thendrale, Chalakku Chalakku, Pogaadhe Naadodi Nanba etc were nice to listen.

Devi Sri Prasad: This Chennai based Telugu music director stole the hearts of all Vijay fans with his music in Sachien especially the song Kanmoodi Thirakkumbodhu. And he made Vijay sing after a long gap with Vaadi Vaadi, a typical gaana, which was a run away hit among Vijay fans. Other memorable tunes are the Beat of Sachien and Gundu Maanga. There was an unfortunate bitter experience with respect to copyrights since he used the tune of a Telugu song for “Dei Dei Dei”. The song was retuned with same lyrics and visuals after the film released. He has also composed a single song “Kattu Kattu” in Thiruppachi.

Ramana Gokula: Yet another music director from Telugu who worked for the remake movie Badri. Angel Vandhaale and King of Chennai were the new tunes while Kaadhal Solvadhu, Travelling Soldier theme and Vijay’s own Ennoda Laila were retained from Telugu original “Thammudu”. All songs were hits.

Dheena: This music director from small screen who created waves with Manmadha Raasa created news once again with “Kumbida Pona Deivam” with the same lead singers in Thiruppachi. This song and the intro song of Vijay “Nee endha ooru” were big hits. But this was not his complete album. He shared credits with Devi Sri Prasad and Mani Sharma for one song each.

    Hmm... This is a noteworthy point. Vijay movies had hardly any big music directors .. Except for couple of movies (Kadhalukku mariyadhai, Friends) where I'raja supported , the vijay songs have been most played, most seen on TV these days ... all because of vijay's fast dance only !!!
