Answer for Background Score - 11

This piece is from ‘Dharmathin Thalaivan’. It is used in a fight sequence and also when Rajini secretly enters a big bungalow. But I first heard this piece as a lead music of Sun Movies Channel. It has been my favourite piece of music since then. Usually, it is good to see people guessing the movie correctly. But this time it was interesting to see many guessing it wrongly (as Apoorva Sahotharargal, Michael Madhana Kaamaraajan and Nadigan), which lead to more exploration of similar beautiful music pieces by Illayaraja. I think the dishyum sound in between the clip caught everyone’s attention.

I don’t remember the BGM from fight sequences in AS or MMKR but Nadigan BGM is still fresh in my mind. I like the music from the scene when Manorama reveals her love for Master in Nadigan, there is a bass guitar piece looping in the background which sounds like the piece from Dharmathin Thalaivan and there is a beautiful romantic piece played on a string section whenever Manorama is shown attracted to older Sathyaraj.

Yeah..I remember now. The dishyum sound did the trick which made us guess it wrong. Suresh, what abt. the other piece that you
had given in the background score 11. I absolutely love that version of the tune (unlike the fight one)
which has a kinda melody base to it. I remember hearing to
this piece before but cannot think where. Was it done by IR in a concert or something?

This piece when you posted reminded me more of Sangathil paadatha song(Captain's Autoraja)/ Sneha's Jewelery ad bgm/Thumpi vaa song(Olangal-malayalam movie). Heard of these?

Suresh Kumar said...

Abubaker - Heard all the songs. Yes IR has used it many times.

The starting part of this music is like "Ram Bam Bam" from MMKR. That was why somebody might have linked it to MMKR.

-- You can get a very similar brillian composing in URUVAM which is very similar to the above explained from NADIGAN.
