The music director has scored music for more than 120 films both in tamil and telugu of which his songs for Rajnikanth were evergreen hits.
“Superstaru Yarunnu Kaetta’ was the memorable song composed by the music director and at a time he was the favourite music director for AVM. He composed music for 12 of its films.
‘Anna Nagar Mudhal Theru’, ‘Raja Chinna’, ‘Paati Sollai Thattadhey’, 'Manithan' were some of the films in which his music was stupendous.
Director VC Guhanathan's "mathurageetham" was the debut film for this popular music director and before debutting in films he was scoring music for devotional songs along with another music director of our times deva. He also worked in all india radio.
