Maestro goes Hindi

Composer Ilaiyaraaja has composed music for just a handful of Hindi films.But now, he seems to be taking Hindi films bit more seriously than before. He is dishing out about 2 films (there is one more i guess) very soon. Both the film-makers hail from South - RamGopal Varma & Balkrishnan.
While RamGopal Varma's film is titled as "Shiva"(a retro) , Balkrishnan's film, starring Big-B and Tabu, has a very strange title-"Cheeni Kum".

"Waiting to see how well he does a Hindi film."...

I think it depends on how "bollywoodish" and "philmy-ish" are the producer, director and partygaL.

Waiting for your reaction on Shiva Aakarsh.

I did not like the songs initially other than Dheemi Dheemi...but having heard them again and again and in 'good' quality versions...I am very impressed. Really impressed.
