Young music composer Imman, who is on a high, post the success of Kumki is all set to recreate the magic with Ilayathalapthy Vijay’s next, tentatively titled Jilla. The movie also stars Mollywood biggie Mohal Lal, who enjoys equal screen space as Vijay and hottie Kajal Agarwal who will sizzle with Vijay once again after Thuppakki.
Buzz has it that the movie has a native subject and is set in Madurai. If this is true, then it is for the first time that the Velayudham star will be seen in a rural role after having completed more than 50 flicks in Tamil.
Imman who started his career with a Vijay film Tamizhan has come a full circle in the last decade. Ask him what special care he takes for Illaythalapathy Vijay who has grown as a mass hero, Imman asserts, "Madan Karky is teaming up with me for the first time.
Though there will be a pattern of songs that is associated with any big hero’s film, it will still be in my style and template. Melody is my forte. Be it a peppy number or an item-song, the highlight will be the melody and soul in it, which we are making sure comes across, through our lyrics and music."
Apparently, Imman had met Vijay recently and discussed the music of Jilla and how to bring a fresh sound in his compositions. Unlike other composers of K’town who sometimes get the mood to compose only in exotic locales, Imman strongly feels that his studio in the city is the ultimate place which has brought out his best. "I don’t believe in the idea of flying abroad to exotic locations and billing it to the producer. A good tune should come from within you. Even now I am sitting with Karky in my studio for Jilla’s first song," he says.
In his debut Tamizhan, Imman managed to convince Vijay to croon a n u m b e r Ullatthai Killathe. Any plans of roping in Vijay for a song, since the star also recent ly sang the hit number Google Google? "Why not," he says, adding, "Vijay sir is particu lar that the song should justify his voice.
If it is tailor-made for him, he would be too willing to come forward and render it." Let’s hope the master of melodies can please his Illayathalapathy.
