Govind Vasantha is an Indian composer, singer, and violinist who works in Malayalam and Tamil films. He is one of the founding members of the musical band Thaikkudam Bridge, in which he is a vocalist and violinist. He was recently accused by legendary music director Ilayaraja for using his songs in “96” movie.
Govind Vasantha’s composing was very well appreciated by the fans and by the critics as well. In a way of paying tribute to Ilayaraja, the movie crew used number of his songs in the movie. The movie apparently used some of the legendary music director Ilayaraja’s old hit songs as a tribute and as a tool which elevates the movie’s plot. The movie became a blockbuster and the remakes of the movie in other languages are in full swing.
Putham Pudhu Kaalai from movie Alaigal Oivadhillai
Aasai Athigam Vachu from the movie Marupadiyum
Kannan Vandhu from the movie Rettai Vaal Kuruvi
Thendral vandhu theendum podhu from the movie Avatharam
Yamunai aatriley from the movie Thalapathi.
These songs are used in the movie 96. Though they have not used it completely, few verses of them took place ion the movie. Now to our shock, the veteran musician Ilayaraja seems to be unhappy about the movie crew making use of his songs to connect with the audience.
Ilayaraja called the musician of “96” as “Impotent” for using his songs for it’s plot in the interview with Sudhir Srinivasan. This created huge outrage in social media where many people expressed their hatred against Raja who even became the victim of severe trolls. Now in a way of shutting them all, Govind Vasanth has released a video in his official twitter account.
The video shows the composer playing the violin version of “Sundhari” famous Ilayaraja song from the movie “Thalapathy”. He added a caption saying “Forever Fan!!
#Ilayaraja #IsaiGnani #thalapathi #Rajinikanth”

You people are the initial reason for the audacious quality of Illayaraja

“When they don’t have the potential to create a new song to impress the audience, they are using a popular old song to connect with the audience. In “Yaadan Ki Baarat” movie, R.D Varman composed a fresh song to help themselves with the plot. He composed his own song as a 20 year old one. If the plot requires a 1980’s music, a music director have to compose it himself. This shows their impotence in making fresh compositions” Raja said.
ஆனாலும் ராஜா சாருக்கு இவ்வளவு மண்டகனம் ஆகாதுப்பா.. அதுவும் சொல்ற உதாரணத்த பாரேன்.. 😫
