Though you see a lot of experiments and permutations happening in the film industry, certain things have been followed as standard procedure. One such aspect has been one movie used to have one music director. Things used to be rather streamlined in that department.
But the eccentric genius Ram Gopal Varma broke that by bringing in multiple music directors for one of his movies. Recently, for the hit movie Temper the music was by Anup Rubens and Background score was by Melody Brahma Mani Sharma. As such, both are popular.
Now, it is heard that Thaman has been asked to compose a song for the Tamil movie Mass starring Suriya. Also, Thaman and Anup Rubens are teaming for Akkineni Akhil’s movie. Due to such arrangements, single card music director’s trend is decreasing and their identity is in trouble. It is heard that they are finding this uncomfortable because it is also about respecting their experience and reputation. However, that’s how the trend is set so they have no choice but to accept it.
