Director accuses Rahman and Harris of being dishonest to art

IndiaGlitz [Saturday, February 08, 2014]

In the audio launch event of Thegidi the film that has music by debutante Nivas Prasanna, director Seenu Ramasamy one of the chief guests of the event came down hard on popular music director Harris Jayaraj as well A.R.Rahman who is the one and only Oscar winner form Tamilnadu.

Seenu Ramasamy  said "MSV apart from scoring music for big budget MGR films scored for small budget films also. Ilayaraja did the same during his hey days and continues it even today. But today's leading music directors A.R.Rahman and Harris Jayaraj do not take up small budget films. I see this habit of avoiding a project for its budget as being dishonest to art".

The Directot justified his argument against the two composers who command the respect of thousands of fans, stating that "When a big-name music director composes for a small film, it gets noticed by the audience, who will consider watching it. Today, small-budget films give importance to the script, and it's in these films that you can have good music."  He questioned whether these music directors take up the projects based on content without considering the budget.

It is to be noted that Seenu Ramasamy's maiden film went had music by a debutant Raghunandan and the film would have gone unnoticed had it not received two National awards. The film was declared a commercial failure before it got such a recognition. His second film Neerparavai again that was produced by a popular banner like Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies was also critically acclaimed but failed to keep cash registers ringing. The film again had music by Raghunandan whose songs gained good name but failed to raise up the film's fortunes.

We at Indiaglitz are eager to know the response of the fans to Seenu Ramasamy's criticisms. Can they be justified considering the fate of his earlier films?
