Happy Birthday Imman

Ofcourse with Jilla's 'Kandaangi' sending ripples, we are sure Imman is having a very happy birthday ? . As we are celebrating the talented music director D.Imman's birthday today, here is a quick peek into the wonderful music that he has given us.Talking about Jilla, isn't it a coincidence that Imman first worked for a Vijay movie way back in 2001 - Thamizhan.

What actually bought Imman to light was his catchy title music for various serials like Krishnadasi, Kolangal, Thirumathi Selvam etc. One music director who has had a steady career we could say is Imman. Wondering why we are saying this? In 2003 , his 'Azhagiya Asura' from the movie Whistle came out to impress the audience while 2004 had Aanai do the hit talks for him. 2005 on the other hand showered him love through the movie ABCD in which the track 'Manjal mugame' came to be known as the official 'family' welcome song. We are sure 2006 would have been a very busy year for imman as he composed over 6 films that year. Did you like the song 'Mobile-aa,Mobile-aa' from Rendu? Well ofcourse Imman is the reason behind the score. As years passed by, Imman's hits has definitely carved a niche style for itself.With the movie Myna releasing in the year 2010, Imman's musical journey took a higher note. 'Myna myna nenjukulle' and 'Jingu Chika' are notable numbers from the movie which easily captured music lover's attention.

2012 although proved very lucky for him as Kumki saw brilliant compositions. Infact that year, Kumki's song topped all the charts. Last year ofcourse, the song 'Oodha colour ribbon' did all the talking! 'Varutha padaatha Valibar sangam' was widely appreciated for the catchy songs.As 2014 has just begun, we are expecting more from this talented musician.

Nageshwara Rao was first introduced in the movie Dharmapatni way back in 1941. What is amazong about this man is that he could comfortably don the hat of any role and did not restrict himself to any particular genre. His first movie for instance infact saw him playing a female role! Popularly known as ANR he has also won the Dada Saheb Phalke Award. His variety of roles has been witnessed in movies with folk genre, social issues as well. Alongside his contemporaries like MGR and Sivaji Ganesan, ANR has also given some of the best romantic movies.

'Kurissey Vennilo' is a good listen talking about few best tracks of ANR. 'Cheliya Kanarava' also strikes one's mind thinking about him.His best film includes 'Devdas' where he literally lived the role and made many a audience shed a tear!

This multi - talented actor is also a wonderful writer. The easily mentionable ones are Tenali Rama Krishna, Devdas, Maya Bazaar, Missamma, Muga .
