I don't take criticism in a wrong way: Thaman

I don't take criticism in a wrong way: Thaman

Music director SS Thaman is the sensation in Tollywood right now. He is back with a bang with the blockbuster music album of Ala Vaikunthapurrammuloo. Juggling with both Venky Mama and Ala and other films, Thaman is the most happening music composer. Despite his super busy schedule, we manage to strike a conversation with him.

"Ala Vaikunthapurrammuloo and Venky Mama are good scripts. Good scripts require good songs. The directors of the films are taking the good songs from me. I have nothing to do much," says most humble and down-to-earth Thaman about the immediate two big releases of his work.

Divulging how he has redefined his career and what helped him to bounce back, Thaman reveals, "I took break after Sarrainodu and have studied where it was going wrong. I had played cricket. I had travelled. I had interacted to my friends. The break was good and helped me to improve myself. I be with the people. I talk to people on Twitter."

"It all depends on selecting scripts. I came to know that I was repetitive in choosing my scripts. I know where I'm standing today and I know where I'm going to stand tomorrow," adds Thaman. "From Mahanubhavudu, I've started fresh. I took a break for one and half year. I have studied what is happening with me. From Bhaagamathie to Tholi Prema to Chal Mohan Ranga to Aravinda Sametha, everything has changed," says Thaman about his transformation in his career.

Talking about feedback and criticism, Thaman says, "I don't take criticism in a wrong way. Every tweet is like a press meet. Why would someone tweet negative about one's work unless and until he is disappointed with one's work. Next time, I make sure to make that person happy. That's how I keep working upon myself and my work." "Amma Thittakapothe Ela Telustundi, " says Thaman comparing critics with mother.

Talking about Venky Mama, Thaman reveals that the film is an emotional film with a lot of depth in it. "Without dubbing, without rerecording and without effects itself, my eyes were teary when I have watched portions in edit suit. Venky Mama was touching and moving."

Ask him how does he feel when singer is taking away credit and dominating, Thaman quips, "If Sachin scores a century, does the team feel bad? No, right? If a singer gets credit, I'm very happy. I really feel happy if a singer handpicked by me has delivered his job well."
