MILFF 2017: A Musical Journey Not To Be Missed

I think music, in my opinion, is not about motivation in the way it's - it's not a running base. It's art. And my whole philosophy of music is different. It's almost like cooking and serving to people, seeing them smile and enjoying the food, really.” – A.R.Rahman.
Just as god’s favorite musician said, music is indeed an art and it can liberate your soul when you hear to fantastic music. Especially when you have a band playing on stage right in front of you. Well, that is exactly what you are going to get when you attend MILFF 2017.

Malaysian Independent Live Fusion Festival or better known as MILFF is returning again this year for the very second time after a successful outing last year. This year it is going to get bigger and better. 
Sid Sriram
Happening on September 9th 2017, be prepared to be wooed with some musical magic from “Thalli Pogathey” fame Sid Sriram, the highly energetic Vijay Prakash with his ban. This two people need no introduction as they have been hugely successful in the cinema industry and have sung for A.R. Rahman before! Being a huge fan of Sid Sriram , it is no secret that he is the main reasons why I am attending this years MILFF. What an experience it would be to watch this great man perform live in MILFF.

Also the co-founder of Masala Coffee, Sooraj Santosh will be there along with AGAM the band. All of them are set to perform for you for a 6 hour musical festival from 5.30 p.m. at StarXpo Center in KWC Fashion Mall.

What makes this year’s MILFF a little more special compared to its previous edition is the fact that this time there is going to be an inclusion of TWO LOCAL ARTIST in the show. That’s right we this time we are going to have a couple of local artist sharing the grand stage and entertaining us.

Top: Balan Kashmir; Bottom Stylomannavan
And they are no other than Balan Kashmir, who recently burst into the limelight with “Start That Thiruvizha” and the very well-known Stylomannavan. It gives us all the more reasons to be part of MILFF 2017.

For those who are still in two minded to attend and would want to know how was MILFF last year before making the decision this year, well I've had the opportunity to ask a couple of people who attend MILFF 2016 to share their experience on how it was here is what they have got to say.

About MILFF 2016, well for someone with zero knowledge in singing but a whole lot of passion in it, I think it's a great concert. I truly had a blast there. No questions about whether I'll consider going or not, already bought my tickets. Said Thevaraj Raman, a student of University Technology Petronas.

"They started the show on the dot. The music was too good and it's really bad for our knees. We couldn't moving and dancing to the beats till we had sore foot and knees. I will definitely go back with a bigger group. Last year I manage to gather 8 about people. This year we have double the crowd already." Said photographer & former blogger Vicknes Waran.

"One of the best concerts I have ever been. Audience were not taken for granted. They started the show right on time. Perfect song selection and sound system was good. We Malaysians don't really get the chance to experience fusion, carnatic, raaga based music actually. MILFF 2016 was an eye opener to me." Said Venpa famed "Thirumbi Paaradi" singer Thanneer Narayanan.

With MILFF 2016 being a huge success, the stage is now set for MILFF 2017 to be bigger and greater. It is still not too late for you to grab your tickets. For more details visit or get your tickets at Alternatively, call 016-3271557.

On 11th June 2017, I had written a post titled "RIP?: A film like no other before". The general theme of the post was about my review of the film. As I have always had a raw style of writing, I applied it in this post as well.

At the point of writing the post, it never came across to me that my writing could cause grievance and inconvenience to another party. I naively wrote with the intention of expressing my views. However it came to my attention a week later that my post has indeed hurt the film team.

Two weeks ago, this whole turned up to be a bigger controversy as I received an official notice regarding my write up and we had to engage assistance from 3rd party to bring an end to this issue. After a series of letters were exchanged, both parties (the film team & I) were able to come to mutual conclusion to put an end to this controversy for good.

Therefore as part of the agreement, I will delete the initial post of the film effective immediately and hand over a written apology letter to the film director. The handing over of the letter happened successfully today and below is an attached photo of it.

Two of my biggest passion are indeed cinema and writing. That was the reason why I started doing film reviews on my blog. As I do not make any money through my blog, all of the previous article was written purely based on passion and love I have on this two art.

Therefore to avoid a repeat of the similar controversy, I would like to used this space here to announce that, moving forward I will no longer write reviews on Malaysian Local Films. Meanwhile on Indian Tamil Films, I would temporary stay away from writing reviews as the last two weeks has cause me a lot of emotional  distress and I have lost the will to write reviews for now.

Nevertheless I will still continue to write other materials on my blog and hoping to see you guys soon with a new article. I would like to state again that I had no bad or ill intention when I wrote the film article and therefore have taken it down. I would also like to thank all parties who worked together in bring this to an end and we can all now move forward.

Yours Truly,
