Top 5 Director-Music Director combo in the last two decades.
27 Mar 2017
There are few combination in the Tamil film industry that have always garnered positive response from the audience for the kind of output that they are capable of delivering. And when this association happens between a Composer and Director, the expectation level for the movie as well as the music album is too high considering their works together in the past. An example for this is the Bharathiraja-Illayaraja and Manirathnam-A.R.Rahman combo. In current times, there are few such Director - Composer combo that always create buzz among the fans. Lets have a look at them below.
Gautham Menon - Harris Jeyaraj (Minnale, Kaaka Kaaka, Vaaranam Aayiram)
Songs always has a special place in a Gautham Vasudev Menon movie as he always place it in the right place and right time. GVM association with A.R.Rahman may be successful, but the magic that was created by his earlier association with Harris is simply brilliant. These two share a special bonding and most of the fans would want them to be back together.
Selvaraghavan - Yuvan Shankar raja (7/G Rainbow colony, Kaadhal Kondein, Pudupettai)
This is one other combination that has always created quite a stir among the fans for their chemistry and the kind of offbeat music that emerge from their association. The songs like 'Idhu Porkarlam' from 7G and 'Enga area' from Pudupettai are just a gist for the kind of music this pair is capable of producing.
Vetrimaaran - G.V.Prakash (Polladhavan, Aadukalam)
This is one other combination that has fallen apart due to some reasons. But the works of these two together gives us reason to believe that it is simply one of the best combo in the industry. Be it the 'Yengayum Yeppodhum' song in Polladhavan or the 'Yathai' song from Aadukalam, they have always managed to give us some fresh and original music that go well along with the movie.
Prabhu Solomon - D.Imman (Myna, Kumki, Thodari)
Probably one of the most successful combination and these two had managed to stay above the expectation of the audience with their recent 'Thodari' album. Both 'Mynaa' and 'Kumki' are musical hits and also the background score in these movies were quite notable. Both of them have used each other quite well to establish themselves a strong place in the industry.
Pa.Ranjith - Santhosh Narayanan (Attakathi, Madras, Kabali)
Finally, the talk of the town. The 'Kabali' Album is already making history in the industry and the fans are quite eager to see how these songs has been visualized by Ranjith. Their previous association in Attakathi and Madras were rave hits as the music perfectly reflects the tone of the movie. The background score is one other thing we got to look out for when these two comes together.
