Mysskin’s experience as he approached Ilayaraja for upcoming flick

Actor Sri did movie ‘Vazhakku En 18/9’.  Now, Sri does movie ‘Onaiyum Aatukuttiyum’ directed by Mysskin.  The upcoming flick is a seat edge thriller. 

Music composer Ilayaraja seems to have asked Mysskin to leave the place when he approached Ilayaraja to compose music for the upcoming flick. 

Mysskin is one among ardent fans of Ilayaraja. Mysskin and Ilayaraja teamed up for movie ‘Nandalala’.  Ilayaraja gave wonderful background music and numbers for the movie. 


But Mysskin used just two numbers and stored the other numbers in CD.  In between, Mysskin directed movies as ‘Yudham Sei’ and ‘Mugamoodi’.  Music composition was by K.  He is also a fan of Ilayaraja.  There is line in ‘Mugamoodi’ which goes thus ‘Raja Illaadha Sangeethamaa...’

Mysskin spoke of his experience as he approached Ilayaraja for music composition in ‘Onaiyum Aatukuttiyum’: -


‘When he first saw me, he asked me to leave the place.  I realized that he was angry at me for not using his numbers in ‘Nandalala’.  As I explained the reason, he listened to me like an elder brother.’


‘When I told him that there is no number in the movie, he was taken aback. But, as he listened to the story, he conceded.  He realized that the background music is important and we started working together. 


 Although the movie does not have numbers, Ilayaraja makes himself felt throughout the movie.’

‘The movie does not have a heroine.  That is the decision arrived at considering the movie’s story.  It is not my decision alone.  Since I am both director and producer for the movie, I have liberty to make decisions.’

‘Movie ‘Onaiyum Aatukuttiyum’ produced under my banner Lone Wolf would be a seat edge thriller.  Major portions where shot in Chennai during night.’


‘The movie’s hero Sri has lived the character of traumatized college student.  The shooting schedules are nearing finish.  The movie’ release would be in September.’
