Tribute to TMS

Like lakhs of people across India, I’ve always wondered how T. M. Soundararajan could effortlessly lend his voice to both Sivaji Ganesan and MGR, when both their characteristics were poles apart.


I am a great fan of his bold voice! Out of the very few songs of his that I’ve heard, I list down some of my favorites.

1. Avalukkenna, Azhagiya Mugam – Server Sundaram 

2. Pullanguzhal Kodutha Moongilgaley – Krishna Gaanam

3. Naan paarthathiley, aval… – Anbe Va

4. Andha Naal Nyabagam – (which movie is this?)

5. Ullam Uruguthaiyya – listen to it here

His demise today comes just over a month after the passing away of P. B. Sreenivas, another veteran of Tamil playback singing, known for his soft voice.

The twin loss of TMS and PBS has left a void in the Indian film industry that is irreparable!

May their souls rest in peace.

  1. Yes It was really amazing how TMS could modulate his voice. He is the master of HIGH PITCH songs. And PBS (Play Back Singer) is outrageous in his melody. These voices has really influenced my parents, me and my son. Three generations. Great. MAY THEIR SOUL REST IN PEACE.
    One Song sung by TMS is Vandavar ellam thangivittal eidha ulginil edam adhu.
