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 РServer 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.
