Music maestro Ilaiyarajaa received the award for Best Original Score at the Amsterdam International Film Festival. Ilayaraaja won the award for his compositions in director AJithvasan Uggina’s Indo-English film, A Beautiful Breakup.

(The) award for best original music. We are so happy!!! It’s incredibly beautiful music,” Robinson wrote.
The film, which includes up to 30 original Ilaiyaraaja soundtracks, was produced by A5 Natures Movies International in the UK and stars debutants Krish and Matylda in the lead roles. A Beautiful Breakup is about love, hate, desire, revenge, and a variety of other conflicting feelings that run through Krish and Ruby’s lives at the same time.
Krish and Ruby, the protagonists, are a couple living in the UK. Various destinations have seen their love deepen over the years as a couple who have traveled the world together. Despite this, the couple decides to end their relationship, and they want to make it a memorable experience by traveling, which is their favorite pastime. Unexpected plot twists result from ghostly activity in the tourist destination.
