ARR Discography Application

Recently, I noticed that the whole discography information was updated on ARR website:

I then uploaded those CSV spreadsheet files to Zoho Creator, an online database application and quickly created couple of forms and views. (Disclaimer: I work for Zoho). I also created a simple dynamic HTML page with the count of movies and songs fetched from this online database and those search fields that allow you to search. Here is the searchable ARR discography application:

PS: I was thinking of doing the same thing for Ilaiyaraaja discography. But then I found a better modeled application at
