One of India’s greatest musical directors, Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja, won the award for Best Original Score at the Amsterdam International Film Festival.
Ilaiyaraaja won the award for his compositions in the Indo-English film “A Beautiful Breakup” by director Ajithvasan Uggina.
Producer Sir Marco Robinson shared the news on Twitter. He said: “We won the best score for our film ‘A Beautiful Break’ with composer Ilaiyaraaja at the Amsterdam Film Festival. (The) award for best original music. We are so happy!!! It’s incredibly beautiful music.”
The film, which features up to 30 original Ilaiyaraaja soundtracks, was funded by a UK-based production house called A5 Natures Movies International and stars debutants Krish and Matylda in the lead.
“A Beautiful Breakup” is Ilaiyaraaja’s 1422nd film and an international project. KRGunahsekar was the director of photography for the film, which was edited by Srikanth.
Ilaiyaraaja’s upcoming musical titled “Music School” directed by Papa Rao Biyyala has completed its forty-five day schedule by successfully shooting ten of its eleven songs in Hyderabad.
The quick and efficient realization of this program can be credited to master choreographers Chinni Prakash and Raju Sundaram. The first two programs of this Ilaiyaraaja play were choreographed by Broadway choreographer Adam Murray.
The makers of the film are now gearing up for its final program with the intention of delivering a memorable musical.
At the end of the program, Shriya Saran said, “Thank you for this amazing shoot. Mr. Kiran, we love you. Thank you Chinni Prakash sir and master Raju for your choreography. It was fun shooting with Sharman and the most amazing child actors. Thank you dad sir for making this movie.
Actor Sharman Joshi added that “I just finished the third music school program. It was a huge task with very elaborate dance sequences and a very large cast with children.
“It was quite a challenge for Mr. Rao’s team. For me as an actor, it’s been very exciting to see all of this come together and huge efforts for the film that we’re trying to scale in terms of scale, in terms of casting and everything else put in square. ”
