It is common in the Tamil film industry to see people from diverse backgrounds getting into production. So, not surprisingly, a paediatrician and a professor team up to produce Megha. Starring Ashwin, who played a sub-inspector in Mankatha, and Srishti, the film is directed by Karthick Krish, a former associate of Subramania Siva.

Producers Albert James, a city-based paediatrician and Selva Kumar, professor at an engineering college in the city, say the story is about a forensic expert trying to solve a murder.

“The protagonist will play a forensic expert who specialises in gun shot wounds,” says director Karthick Krish. The film is scheduled to release in the last week of April.

What is significant in their project as producers? Albert James says, “Signing up Ilaiyaraaja as music director. What can be more significant than this?”

Ilaiyaraaja is one music director who produces quality music today. He is a no-nonsense composer who gives more than 100% in completing the music direction for any project. Tamil cinema and Tamil film music is dead today vis-a-vis quality. If not for Ilaiyaraaja, we would have stopped listening to tamil songs long ago. Once in a while, he composes music for a film and motivates us to expect "good music". Even if such a scenario of Ilaiyaraaja composing music for a film does not come too often these days, it at least makes us sit up and look for something - be it Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam or Hindi films in which he still composes music. Because of Ilaiyaraaja, we go a step further and take notice of the film to see who the director is, who the hero/heroine are, etc. We are thankful to God for having given us Ilaiyaraaja and for having given us those great musicians before him as well.
