Vishal Chandrasekhar is an Indian film score and soundtrack composer, who has predominantly scored music for Tamil films.
Vishal started playing the keyboard aged six and began to give solo shows by the time he was ten years old. He graduated from Anna University with a master's degree in Electronic Media, and worked on over 450 short films and 250 ad jingles, en route to being adjudged the best music director in the Nalaya Iyakkunar show on Kalaignar TV. He subsequently completed the foundation course at the KM Music Conservatory. Vishal made his composing debut with Brindha Das's Hi Da during 2012, with a grand audio launch attended by Gautham Menon during January 2013. Despite having the soundtrack released and a trailer launched, the film failed to have a theatrical release. Vishal got an opportunity to work with Santhosh Sivan for the making of his war film, Inam (2014), and won positive reviews for his work. A critic from NDTV noted "the music helps you connect with the film on an emotional level" and "even though there are three songs included merely to give the film a commercial touch, it's his background score that draws your attention". He also completed work on the Telugu film Hrudayam Ekkadunnadi (2014), while he went on to work on the Tamil science fiction film, Appuchi Gramam (2014), which became noted for its song "En Kannukulle".
