Embitterment in Mani Ratnam - Ilayaraja relationship vanishes as both meet

The clash between Ilayaraja and Mani Ratnam which has been there for 21 years has come to an end.  Both Ilayaraja and Mani Ratnam met in Mumbai suddenly. 

From those days, both Mani Ratnam and Ilayaraja have been prominent icons in cine field.  Both of them teamed up for movies during those days.  Not one movie failed in performance. Music by Ilayaraja and direction by Mani Ratnam mingled such that movies turned hits. 

Mani Ratnam’s debutant directorial venture in Tamil is ‘Pagal Nilavu’.  The movie paired Murali and Revathi.  Ilayaraja composed music for the movie.  Following the movie, Mani Ratnam directed movies as Idhaya Kovil, Mauna Raagam, Nayagan, Agni Natchathiram, Anjali and Thalapathi.  For all of these movies, Ilayaraja composed music.  The movies turned super hits. 

Then, there was difference of opinion between the two out of which both severed ties.  After severing of ties, both were not able to give a quality output. 

Mani Ratnam, who snapped ties with Ilayaraja, introduced AR Rahman through movie ‘Roja’ in 1992. 

From then, for every one of Mani Ratnam’s movies, AR Rahman composed music. 

Following that, both Ilayaraja and Mani Ratnam moved away from each other.  For the last 21 years, they have not joined hands.  They did not even meet in person.  There were efforts to team up the both, but those efforts did not fructify. 

In a development, Balki who directed movie ‘Pa’ starring Amitabh, has signed up Ilayaraja for upcoming flick.  Balki is close associate of both Mani Ratnam and Ilayaraja.  The sound recording for the new movie was held in recording studio in Mumbai. 

Then, Balki made arrangement for both Mani Ratnam and Ilayaraja to meet.  Both met in person and opened their hearts to each other.  Following the discussion, the embitterment in the relationship vanished.  It is anticipated that Ilayaraja would compose music for Mani Ratnam’s upcoming flick.
