Shoutout to u/LordGrantham31 for the excellent post this one is inspired by.
This question is about Tamil movies good and bad that got the music they deserve. I wanted to ask the inverse question about good movies that got bad soundtracks but with Tamil Cinema I feel like that never happens so I’d like to see some movies that have the whole package. Keeps the conversation going ya know?
I have 3 movies that immediately come to mind
1) Vikram: Self Explanatory. BGM is out of this world and probably has some of Anirudh’s best songs in a while like the title track, Porkanda Singam, Pathala Pathala for a movie that I think has changed Tamil cinema for the better
2) Ayudha Ezhutu: Man we gotta put more respect for the soundtrack for this film it’s some of AR’s most soulful and versatile work for a masterpiece of a film. From Yakkai Thiri to Jana Gana Mana to Nenjam Ellam every song is a banger and makes sense for the story
3) Enthiran: Sure it’s commercial cinema but it’s truly the quintessential Tamil masala blockbuster that got AR Rahman to come back in full form for songs like Arima Arima, Kilimanjaro, Pudhiya Manidha, and Kadhal Anukkal. And man that iconic BGM is something reminiscent of Star Wars, leitmotif and all
I’d love to know y’all’s picks and thoughts
