The most awaited 'CEG's Thiruvizha', Agni, kicked off at the main grounds on 5th October, 2017 and was graced by the crew of the movie Nenjil Thunirvirundhal. The Guindy Times got to interact with the entire crew of the movie which boasts of aspiring young talents such as Harish Uthaman, Mehreen Pirzada alongside renowned names such as Suseenthiran and D. Imman.

Here are the excerpts from a lively and frank interview with the music director of the film, D. Imman who is a favourite among many youngsters.

How did the journey begin? When did you first start composing music?

When I was four and a half years old, my parents urged me to join a music school. I attended reluctantly just for my parents. I continued like that till the age of 10. After that I began to love music. I started making my own tunes which were appreciated by my parents and friends. These encouragements made me pursue a career in music.

How do you concentrate on the intricate details of every album, despite other commitments?

I really dedicate myself to each and every project. I make time for every single composition. I am punctual and loyal, as I am passionate towards the profession.

A few words about your journey as a music composer

The first thing I got to know was the basics. You need to be very strong in the fundamentals of any field, to achieve excellence. The most important thing that you need to accept is that it’s not easy to achieve success in the music industry soon. All the glam and popularity comes only when you completely dedicate yourself and work hard towards the goal in front of you.

How is it that your songs top the charts almost every time?

Everything is by the grace of God.

What would be your advice for aspiring music directors?

The only key point to remember is that you must have a strong knowledge about the basics. The next thing you need to focus on is the melody and the rhythm. The music you compose must be easy and candid, such that the audience will like it.
