Audio release without the music director but with all leading Directors
January 05, 2007

The audio release of the movie Deepavali was held today morning at Satyam theatres. This function would have brought the Tamil film world to a temporary halt as all the leading directors were seen at the Satyam theatres. The list includes Balumahendra, Bhagyaraj, Paarthiban, K.S.Ravikumar, Gautham Menon, Cheran,

S.A.Chandrasekar, Saran, Durai, Perrarasu, SS Stanley, Vasanthabalan, Simbudevan, Balaji Shakthivel, R.K.Selvamani and Manobala.

The function which had Barathiraja releasing the first copy and Shankar receiving it was not without controversy. The music director of the movie Yuvan Shankarraja was missing. It is said that the music director happens to be the hero of any audio release function. Already the rumor mills have started to work. At least there should have been some efforts from the organizers to explain why Yuvan could not make it. Some even say the music director was not invited to the function as it was a gathering of all directors.
All the directors present were given chance to speak and each one introduced the ones to follow them. Jeyam Raja said “I am now speaking as a director who has given three hits with Ravi and not as his brother. I appreciate the work of Ravi in this movie and thank director Ezhil for bringing the best out of Ravi”. This speech of his brother had Jayam Ravi choking but he did control his emotions on stage.

Director Lingusamy who is the producer of this movie said that he was to produce the movie Kadhal, but due to some reason could not. Lingusamy’s loss is Shankar’s gain. He also said it was Balaji Sakthivel (the director of Kadhal) who recommended Ezhil’s Deepavali story.
Lingusamy too became emotional when he recalled how his brother would financially support him when he was trying to get into movies. “My brother worked in a retail store for Rs750 to support me and my family” said Lingusamy with his eyes filled with tears.

In all, the function was organized well with all leading directors being invited and all getting to have a say. But the function would have been even better had Yuvan graced the occasion or the organizers making an effort to explain Yuvan’s absence.
