The Manjummel Boys team receives a legal notice from Ilaiyaraaja saying, “Remove the song Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan or…”

In February 2024, the film Manjummel Boys, starring Sreenath Bhasi and Soubin Shahir, was released. The unauthorised use of renowned Tamil music composer Ilaiyaraaja’s song, Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan, from the Tamil film Guna (1991) in Manjummel Boys has resulted in legal trouble for the Malayalam film, according to The Hindu.

Makers of Manjummel Boys vs. Ilaiyaraaja

The Manjummel Boys makers were accused by Ilaiyaraaja of “illegally” using Kamal Haasan’s song Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan in their film without getting his “consent, permission or licence,” according to the report.

According to the notice sent through Ilaiyaraaja’s attorney, he wrote the song. The notice stated that “the same or any underlying gesture cannot be a substitute for our client’s permission/licence/content for such usage,” even though the Manjummel Boys creators had acknowledged this fact in the title cards.

Select one of the two options.

Given that the musical piece had been used commercially without permission and without paying royalty or licence fees to Ilaiyaraaja, his legal team demanded that the producers of Manjummel Boys either get the composer’s consent or immediately remove the musical piece from their film in addition to making restitution for unauthorised usage.

The notice purportedly threatened to take appropriate legal action, both civil and criminal, against Shawn Antony, Babu Shahir, and Soubhin Shahir, the film’s producers, should they choose not to pursue either of the two options.

Concerning Manjummel Boys

In the survival drama Manjummel Boys, a group of eleven friends from Kerala are organising a trip to Tamil Nadu’s Kodaikanal. Their journey takes an unexpected turn when one of the friends falls into the Guna Caves, so named because of the 1991 film of the same name starring Kamal Haasan. The next scene in Manjummel Boys depicts the other friends fighting against all obstacles to save their friend.

Vijay Sethupathi gives Shah Rukh Khan props: “His voice surprised me.”

Recently, Vijay Sethupathi talked about his co-star in Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan. In a Cinema Vikatan interview, Vijay referred to Shah Rukh as “a great storyteller.” Prior to Jawan, Vijay debuted as an over-the-top actor in Hindi last year with Farzi on Prime Video.

“He has a very flexible mind.”
According to a report , Vijay said in Tamil, “I’m shocked to hear Mr. Shah Rukh Khan’s voice. He tells fantastic stories. He has an extremely flexible mentality. In an interview, I told him that he is more gorgeous in person than on screen.

“Shah Rukh Khan’s enthusiasm never wanes.”
In a recent interview , Vijay talked about the compliments that Shah Rukh Khan gave him. During Jawan’s filming, the actor also discussed his connection with Shah Rukh. Vijay went on to share what he had discovered from the actor.

“I learn something from everyone,” declared Vijay. Shah Rukh Khan never loses energy, that’s what I’ve learned about him. He was sick one day during the shoot, but you never know until he tells you. That’s a truly remarkable trait in him. He told me a lot of personal details about me, which made me delighted. I’m much happier by what Vijay and Rajinikanth have said about me. I was content that they noticed so many aspects about me and my performances.”

The antagonist in Jawan (2023), Vijay, had stated that he would prefer not to portray villains in films in the future. “I first stated that I don’t want to play villain roles and guest roles going forward during the Merry Christmas promotions,” he remarked. I’ve declined a lot of these kinds of roles lately. There are restrictions and parallels to your previous movies and performances when you play many roles in the same scene (antagonist).

The 50th and most recent film directed by Vijay Sethupathi, Maharaja, was released on June 14. Anurag Kashyap, an actor and filmmaker, also stars in the Nithilan Saminathan-directed picture. We are given a slow-burning thriller by Nithilan. Many characters appear in the early half, although they all seem unimportant but as you get to the intermission, you realise there are bigger things at play. It’s in the second half that you begin to connect the dots and figure out why Maharaja is a determined man on a relentless mission to find Lakshmi.
