Happy birthday Ilayaraaja and Mani Ratnam

Today, June 2nd is a big day for Tamil Cinema. It is the birthday of the legendary music composer and an inspirational film-maker. Yes, we are talking about Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja and Mani Ratnam.

Ilaiyaraaja turns 74 today, while Mani celebrates his 62nd birthday. Both of them have worked together in several films and Raaja has been a major cause for uplifting the already elevated quality of Mani's films. The songs and background scores that have come out in the films from their combination have always topped the charts and have been critically acclaimed too. Even though their amalgamation didn't continue from the early 1990s, the existing legacy is very much loved by their fans.

Ilaiyaraaja's most recent release was Enga Amma Rani and we are all eagerly awaiting his next, Naachiyaar, directed by Bala. Mani Ratnam struck a chord with his recent, Kaatru Veliyidai and there are a lot of expectations over his next film, which is widely speculated to be with Aishwarya Rai.

We wish both these incomparable and blessed legends a very happy birthday and a long life ahead. We also hope that somewhere down the line, they would collaborate yet again to re-create their magic.
