G.V.Prakash Kumar, a Kollywood Music Director with a charming set of evergreen tracks as a part of his discography is celebrating his birthday today. We cannot ask for a better reason to post about the Top 5 Albums of G.V. Prakash Kumar that we all love in no particular order.
Released in 2010, this A. L. Vijay directorial has the chartbuster track, “Pookal Pookum Tharunam” and 6 other beautiful tracks which will never go out of a Tamil Cine Music Fan’s playlist. G.V. Prakash’s musical fame grew to a different level after the album’s release. His music greatly supported the blend of different cultural values in the Pre-Independence Setup.
6 National Awards. This will talk enough about the film’s success and reach. Released in 2011, this Vetrimaaran directorial had 7 songs in total. What makes Aadukalam special is for a film that is very earthy and rustic G.V.Prakash just added flavours. His music keeps you attached to the settings of Madurai and never once takes you away from it. This album is also a fine mix of songs which has something for a fan of any music genre.
With Actor Vijay playing the lead, everyone knew right away that this album would be received well. It did and G.V. Prakash did his part extremely well. A commercial album with a good mix of 7 tracks and two bonus tracks, Theri serves a place on this list. Theri had a Folk Chartbuster in “Jithu Jilladi” a melody hit in “En Jeevane” and other feel-good numbers. For so many fans out there, Theri felt complete.
4. Raja Rani
Released in 2013, this Rom-Com directed by debutant Atlee has 7 lovable, cheerful tracks. Raja Rani’s romance is in its tracks. The album has peppy romantic numbers like “Oday Oday” and also heart-wrenching romantic numbers like “Imaye Imaye”. This album became an instant hit among couples all over the Kollywood Fandom.
Ok! So, as we get to the last album on our list, we really felt bad missing out on many more good albums. The albums that almost made to our list are, Deivathirumagal, Angaadi Theru, Aayirathil Oruvan, Thaandavam, and Darling. With G.V. Prakash concentrating more on acting nowadays we surely miss his contribution to the music.
5. Mayakkam Enna
2011 was such a beautiful year for G.V.Prakash. Collaborating with Selvaraghavan for this film he just delivered a track list that will be one of his career best sets. Karthik Swaminathan(Dhanush) is left speechless at many instances in the film because of his struggles and taking his place in conveying the emotions to us is G.V. Prakash’s music. Not only the tracks but just the BGM of the film stole the hearts of millions of confused dreamers all over the world.
We wish you a very happy birthday G.V. Prakash Kumar!!!
