We are all familiar with IR's extensive use of counterpoints in TFM. I wanted to know if any one else in TFM has used counter points effectively and made a song hit. If so can you please name the movie, the song and the music director?

"counterpoint. The ability, unique to mus., to say two things at once comprehensibly. The term derives from the expression punctus contrapunctum, i.e. `point against point' or `note against note'. A single `part' or `voice' added to another is called `a counterpoint' to that other, but the more common use of the word is that of the combination of simultaneous parts or vv., each of significance in itself and the whole resulting in a coherent texture. In this sense counterpoint is the same as polyphony."
