K. Balachander gets emotional!
July 29, 2008

While his music for the recently released Uliyin Osai is still being raved about, maestro Ilayaraja’s next album for Dhanam is well on its way to creating ripples. The album was released by Balachander in Green Park Hotel, Chennai. The event also saw the screening of three songs from the movie to standing ovation, especially for the music and cinematography. ‘Kannanukku Enna Venum’ song won special accolades from the audience.


The event was attended by veteran director Balachander, Ramanarayanan, Sivasakthi Pandiyan, producer Srinivasan, FEPSI Vijayan, and G V Venkatramani. Liyakath Ali Khan hosted the event and first copy of the CD was released by Balachander to Sivasakthi Pandiyan. Sangeetha couldn’t attend the meeting and hence her mother was present.

Addressing the gathering, Balachander revealed that director Siva was his assistant director and cameraman at one point in time. “I have not prepared my speech today unlike other times. That is because I feel certain closeness to the crew and want to speak my mind out,” Balachander declared in his speech.

He further said that Dhanam is a tad different from the other Devadasi movies. “I gave 10 marks for the subject and story before the movie started. After viewing it, I’m giving it 65 marks,” he said. He also averred that Ilayaraja would only agree to score for a movie if the movie’s content is good.

Dhanam is based on the life of a commercial sex worker with Sangeetha playing the lead among other lesser known artistes.
