Harris Jayaraj - A Kollywood Copycat ?

Harris Jayaraj is currently one of the most eminent music director in kollywood second only to A.R Rahman. Harris started out his career as a guitar player , then worked as additional Programmer for A.R Rahman.

'Varaanam Ayiraam' was a milestone in Harris career , he soar to all new heights after the album release. He bagged all the awards possible that year for his work in Varanaam Aayiraam. All the leading newspaper and online site gave Varaanam Aayiraam such record breaking ratings. But did Harris Jayaraj really deserve those accolades ?

There were totally 7 Tracks in Varaanam Aayiram , out of which 4 seems to be a copy. We give the proof , you decide if its to be called Inspiration or just plain Imitation ?

Song 1 

"Adiye Kolluthe"

This Song is a total Rip Off from AC/DC's Love Bomb.

Song 2 

"Mundhinam Parthene"

This song has also been blatantly copied from George Micheal's Faith, Looks like Harris has taken the task of Repacking Famous Pop Songs for our Tamil Audience upon himself .

Song 3 

"Nenjukkul Peidhidum"

The starting guitar chords are almost similar to each other, this maybe considered by few as copy and inspiration by others.

Song 4 

"Ava Enna"
Stolen or Just Plain Coincidence ?

Harris Jayaraj's songs time and time again seem to have a very strange co-incidence with Our Legendary Composer A.R.Rahman's work. Is it  Strange Co-incidence or just blatant copy on Harris Part ?  Here are few example listen to them and you decide 

1. Kuru Kuru From A.R.Rahman's Hollywood Picture 'Couples Retreat'

Now listen to Harris Jayaraj's Kulu Kulu Venpani Pola from 'Engeyum Kaadhal'

2.  Kaiyil Mithakkum Kanava Nee From 'Ratchagan'

Now listen to Harris Jayaraj's Azhiyilae Mutkuli from 'Dhaam Dhoom'

3.Finally this one is very recent indeed, Listen to A.R.Rahman Hit chartbuster Elay Keechan From 'Kadal' 

And here is Harris Jayaraj's Version from Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal


  1. okkk....but a bit of music r tune s copied .....but the rest tune in a song is composed him......if ar r u1 r gv does tis?????

  2. Ava enna and nenjukkul songs r copied :D

  3. even pokkiri theme song is copied from Enemy at the gates movie!! whatever but he has to give credits... an english pop singer used his music and gave credits at last... he should have dignity to give credits atleast... and google google song resembling gangnam style??? :P

  4. only in nejukul song he copied the tune .. in first two songs he took the guitar loop and not the tune .. listen carefully when the pallavi starts

  5. Padayappa mouth organ music is copied in nanban title song.....:p

  11. Stop making such dumb posts. He's the only reason Music is still alive.After 2001 how come these many composers like dsp,thaman r composing..its only by inspiring from his tunes n its a fact. Go to hell haters. But u'll make only his videos n posts bcoz no one can compose such and every normal person who can't do such will feel jealous on those who can. This is called Ego or anything. So those who can't do any music and who have this feeling starts liking those who do avg music. Its an act of self-convince by taking revenge against xtraordinary composer
