Chennai: Maestro Illayaraja will compose the background score of "Kaaka Muttai" fame director M. Manikandan's upcoming Tamil crime-thriller "Kutrame Dhandanai", which is currently in its post-production phase.
"Illayaraja sir will be composing the background score. He is currently busy with another project and as soon as he's done with it, he will start working on our film," Manikandan told IANS.
The film was earlier titled "Kutramum Dhandanayum".
"We changed it to 'Kutrame Dhandanai' as Illayaraja sir felt it was more suitable," he said.
The film, which features Vidharth and Pooja Devariya in the lead, will feature no songs.
"If your story is engaging enough, I don't see the need to include songs in a film. I came to this conclusion based on the feedback I received from audiences, who felt songs broke the narrative in recent Tamil films," Manikandan said.
