Answer for Background Score - 1


This piece is from Mozhi. This is when Prithviraj and Prakash raj scores background score for a scene. Most of them got the answer correct and some of them got even my reason for choosing this BGM correctly. As far as I know, this is the only Tamil movie, where they show how background score is done for a movie. Infact one of the main dialogues of the movie takes background score for analogy. Even in one of the filler dialogue, Swarnamalya will say 'Intha Maathiri scenukku ellam eppadi music vaasippinga'. And above all, though the movie's comoser is Vidhyasagar, every note of this piece beautifully invokes early 90's Illayaraja (Infact one of the answers is Karagattakaaran).

Here is next BGM

Raajapaarvai begins with the scene in the studio where rerecording for a film is going on. This is repeated in more scenes in the movie.

And, BGM Emperor Ilaiyaraaja BGM innum podaliye??

Vidyasagar initially started doing instrumentation in more tech. style - as was the in thing in the early 1990s when he got famous with Arjun's films. But later when he started scoring for more films which involved more of love / family stories and less of action movies, he started using more of Raaja style.

You can see a lot of Raaja similarities in his BGMs / songs post 2000 - like Poovellaam Un Vaasam ('Kaadhal Vandhadhum' is almost the same as 'Thumbee Vaa' / 'Sangam Thannil'); Thithikuthe; Paarthipan Kanavu (the usage of that violin in BGM); ThenRal, etc. Some songs can be mistaken to be Raaja numbers - like 'Thanthana Thanthana Thai Maasam' from Thavasi.

But, he is definitely a good composer in the way he uses the instruments and gives a wholesome feel.
