illayaraja is known for his great music talent is what we know! But he has a great heart to support young talent, which only a few are aware of it. An Indo-Aussie origin, director Julian Karikalan approached with complete script of a romantic love story between a couple, where both are from the different cultural background (one from India and other from Australia). The movie was titled Love and Love Only. Liking the script and talent of the director, Illayaraja decided to support this talented director’s film by scoring music and not only this, he also did music for very less remuneration. In total this movie contains 21 music tracks. This showcases the great helping nature of our maestro.
The movie was sent to International Film and Entertainment Festival of Australian (which was hosted in December 2016) screening and the movie gained great applauds from the jury. To everyone shock, the film fetched two awards, one for Illayaraja for best music and other for Julian Karikalan for best direction. Movie team is not planning to release in theatres, instead, it is planning to release across VOD platforms.
