      5.Malayalam film idustry ude -ve um +ve um enthaanu...in your point of view...??





      1. ok first of all,let me ask whtas this paandi style?

      we call anything tamil as paandi and try to use words like paandi.this is very similar to calling blacks as negro or nigger.but as a matter of fact thats considered to be an insult.if you ask same question to a tamilian,they consider their culture and their music as very much superior to ours.so whats no:1 and no:2 is still very much a "relative" thing.

      ok coming back to your question,i do understand the spirit of the question.I have answered this in a lot of interviews.The first thing to know when you compose for a film is - Keep your bad of egos and attitudes in a bag and lock it up.Its a product that will evolve through discussions and dry runs.

      Its not a private music album you are going to do when you do music for a movie.You are actually giving the musical versions to the director's vision,based on your knowledge and understanding and also based on "n" number of discussions and meetings.

      I guess the "paandi" style you are referring to is the dapankoothu or gaana type songs in 6/8 time signature in movies like chotta mumbai or malabar wedding.

      What can you do when a director demands that and you are a debut composer?tell me how many composers can deny that?

      when we talk about our legendary composers,probably they can deny that,because of their stature in the industry and the respect they already have.But not a relatively new kid on the block.Its either "DO" or "OPT OUT" of the project.But all through these times, i have desired to do a musical subject or atleast work with a director who had a better musical taste that do matches mine atleast to certain extents.And im extremely happy to say that shyamji has been kind enough to give me the freedom of expression i always desired.I had started getting that kind of thing right crazy gopalan and mayabazar i should say.But both were different genre films which were aimed to be mass commercial films.However technically brilliant an album is,only if there is a soul touching track will you get the support from the listeners.In that regards RITU is definitely an eye opener for me.


      2.

      surely yes,i was first offered "Alexander the great".But i dont know what happened to it.Probably i did not follow up well.I know Im really bad at that.The director murali sir had been a great fan of mine since my amrita tv theme music days where he used to tell me he wakes up to that song every day.But you never know,anything can happen anytime...so yes you can surely expect something not too far away from now.


      3.
      Yeah defnitely.who would'nt want to be part of some industry where they offer truckloads of money and hellloads of respects to all technicians.Its very similar to opting for ajob in USA or UK in the IT field.its much better for finacial security as a matter of fact.

      Right now there are 2 projects in telugu.One is RITU in telugu and another commercial film by a new director starring navdeep.

      4. 3 things

      1- Patience.it may take years in some cases.for me it took 4.5 years of wait after my plunge into the industry.
      2- never-say-die attitude - sometimes for weeks and months of hardwork,people may respond in a very lukewarm way.Dont be sad about such things,if you are true to your heart,your sincerity will be appreciated one day or the other.
      3- most importantly MUSIC" - these days i have seen lot of people chancing into music scene just because there is a lot of glamour and fame associated with it.lot of people are taking up courses in SAE and other sound institues as an alternate career stream afer school or college.My plea is plunge only if you are so sure and if you really love music and want to do be in that as a professional.


      5.

      Im not too experienced to give an in-depth analysis about positives and negatives of malayalam film industry.
      But i think if there are more mutual respect,an industry can grow as a whole.a healthy competition instead of "curb it" attitude.
      For eg when i went to see 2nd show of RITU on first day with my family and 2 other families,i was really dissappointed to see a huge group of guys booing and howling through the entire show and i was really saddened to see that myself.Yeah there might be loopholes in a film here and there.and yes we do see people howling occasionally.But this was like too much.I did a small investigation with a CI friend of mine in my personal way.And the things i found out were shocking.This whole bunch was arranged by an actor and his fans group.And i even got the phone numbers and names of people who were involved in the act.But i did not take it up further because i was really saddened about the way things do work sometimes...really strange.I just informed my producer to lodge a complaint and thats about it.All im asking is,why would someone want to put something down to prove they are better than others,why cant they just let their work prove and wait for the result.why do manipulations take place.these are few thiings i cant digest and i cant really understand.

      2. who according to you are the best singers of new generation ?

      3. What is your opinion about TV Reality Music shows ? are they helpfull in bringing up good singers or are they just gimmicks ?

      1.

      let me tell you,its not what the audience want.If it was,you would'nt have asked me this question.because its obviously not what you want and i do guess you are one among the "audience".It what the "filmmakers" think what the audience want.its just a total misconception.I do feel sometimes,all these people are going in some direction and audience is actually much advanced than them and are in some other direction.only if their paths converge at some point,will there be films and music that audience want and like.Only if there are situations in the script that demand that type of music you had mentioned can we do something like that.recently i would appreciate deepakdev for attempting picha vecha naal song in puthiya mugham.he could do it because the script had demanded it.In 90s writers like lohi sir created stories and themes and situations that needed such kind of class music...and we had no scarcity for class composers.
      Nowadays tell me one film where such subjects come?2 years ago i remember seeing a film in which one boy was singing classical songs(dont remember name of film).it was full of classical songs,but do you remember any song?or do you think the film was a success?
      so such things have no definite and clearcut answers.there had been superb classical based songs and films,but not all have bee accepted by audiences too.
      Tell me what will i do,if a director comes to me with a scene where the hero is dancing with his gullywallahs and they are having a local party?tell me one classical song that can suit the mood?so unless there is a song situation that demands such a score,we cant give it.ARR had to wait till DUET to prove that he could do something beyond what he was expected to do till then.I still remember how well it was received.


      2. I think its already answered


      3.
      They are good in one sense.They give a platform for totally new singers to show their talents and to announce their presence.

      positives according to me
      1-platform for newcomers
      2-more attention of people towards music
      3-young singers will learn oldies and all types of music they would'nt have otherwise even known about
      4-respecting masters of musics as celeb judges

      negatives
      1-im not very convinced about the "REALITY" in such shows.
      2-mental traumas of contestants when they go through elimination and other ego hassles
      3-pseudo-star status that they get through such shows.i say its pseuod because it actually never lasts more than a few months.
      but on the basisi of that immediate stardom,.they tend to behave abnormally or with "jaada" as we call it.this will lead to them losing good projects and chances.
      4-though they are considered to be stars in front of tv viewers,the film industry doesnt give much shit about it.they tend to be totally non-affected by such stars.so there is always a lack of oppurtunities for such "stars" in films.i can say i have given many chances to reality show singers like sangeeth,job,jeetu,vipin xavier,gayatri suresh etc.
      5-the SMS factor is always debatable.it creates a grey area where no one can really see or cross-check the credibility of the actual results.

      1.


      surely i will, if the singer is talented and does deserve a push.it also does depend on the director believing in their voice and a willingness from him.but in all projects i do try to push in some newcomer.
      for eg
      chotta mumbai - Sangeeth,sangeetha prabhu and vipin xavier
      time - sangeetha prabhu
      malabar wedding - vijesh gopal,sam shiva,vipin xavier
      one way ticket - santosh keshav,gayatri suresh
      mayabazar-cicily(relatively new)
      Ritu - Suchit suresan,Neha sasikumar,Jeetu,Job kurien,Smita nishant


      2.
      I was heart-broken to see that in theatre.i remember that even i was in the howling group in tha song scene..lol
      The way it was conceived and composed and the way it was actually on-screen,it was pathetic.
      To be frank there are lot of stupud politics sometimes.But it could also be the time-constraint or even some other limitations.But the song was such a waste in that film.Anyways good to know some people have liked the music atleast.inshah allah..!!!


      3.
      yes 2 telugu projects are on the way
      1 - telugu dub of RITU
      2 - Commercial film with navdeep(arinthum ariyamalum) in lead by a debut director
