Let's look at some of the groundbreaking film albums the two of them worked on in honour of their birthdays.
Unaru, a 1984 malayalam film starring mohanlal Mani Ratnam's second movie is called Unaru. This is the tale of a group of employees who disobeyed their union officials to aid in the construction of a new factory. 'Deepame' and 'Theeram thedi olam padi' are two of the movie's well-known songs.
In the 1988 tamil film Agni Natchathriam, two half-brothers who contend that they are the sons of the same father engage in fight with one another. The music on this album was incredibly progressive for an album released in 1988. Agni Natchathriam ended up setting trends for introducing synthetic pop and electronic funk to tamil music audiences.
Nayakan (1982, Tamil): Ilaiyaraaja adhered to his tried-and-true formula of blending Carnatic, folk, and robust Western orchestration. The album's centrepiece is Thenpandi Seemayaile, which is performed by both Ilaiyaraaja and Kamal Haasan, the lead actor in the movie. The Chitra and mano song Nee Oru Kadhal Sangeetham has a particular place in the hearts of millions of listeners.
