MELODIES ALL THE WAY!

With over 5000 songs to her credit, Sujatha Mohan is one singer which is almost everyone’s favourite. This sweet-voiced lady has explored her talent in almost 5 languages, but is most sought after for the Tamil and the Malayalam industry.

Listen to Sujatha Mohan Songs on Raaga.com

Thanks to A.R.Rahman, she was given a chance to sing ‘Pudhu vellai mazhai’ in the movie Roja in the year 1992. This we can say is one of the songs that took her to a peak in her career. Following this was the song ‘Naetru Ilaatha Maatram enadhu’ from the movie Pudhiya Mugam that hit the top charts. ‘Freshness’ in her voice what was liked by many of the music directors. We can say the A.R.Rahman and Sujatha combo has been brilliant and has brought out some wonderful music. ‘Enveetu thotathil’ from Gentleman, ‘ Kattirika Katthirika’ from Duet , ‘Malarodu Malaringu’ from Bombay, ‘Ini Acham acham illai’ from Indira, ‘Thillana Thillana’ from Muthu were the first few hits that set their musical chemistry on a high.Other melodious numbers by Sujatha are ‘Garuda Garuda’ for the movie for Natpukaaga , ‘Athisayam’ in the movie jeans, infact the melodies sung by here are not countable.

SujathaMohan is one of the judges for the popular music show – Airtel Super singer and encourages many upcoming singers. She is also the recipient of prestigious awards for her wonderful renditions in Minsara kanavu (Poo pookum osai) etc.

A gifted singer that she is, Sujatha Mohan has also added her daughter, another wonderful talent to the music fraternity (Shwetha Mohan). As a lead playback singer, it is amazing to note that Sujatha’s voice suits almost all the heroines.

SujathaMohan has also taken up the responsibility of spreading the joy of ‘music’ in her own ways. We wish the singer more success in the  coming years.

Time Travel : T.M.Soundararajan

T.M.Soundararajan or more popularly known as T.M.S, a wonderful songer who contributed a lot for the growth of the Tamil Music Industry. A genius that he was, he has contributed for over an unimaginable six decades. His songs ofcourse are volumes. Unfortunately it was last year when T.M.Soundarajan passed away.

Listen to TM. Soundararajan Songs on Raaga.com

It is a surprise that a singer like T.M.S was initially rejected by many composers after which he suddenly made an entry into the films with Krishna Vijayam, thanks to S.M.Subbaih Naidu. His collaborations knows no bounds and has been involved in all sorts of productions, right from the days of Thyagaraja Bhagavathar. T.M.S has won over a hundred awards and honors and infact one can say he completely deserves it all.
‘Naan Naanyitaal’ is enough to describe the mass attraction T.M.Soundararajan has created. Until today it created that the mass appeal and infact it can never be replaced. Similar is the case with the song ‘Adho andha paravai pola’. These are ofcourse his classics. Movies like Agathiyar, Shanti, Padagotti etc. were infact flocking with crowd, thanks to the hit songs T.M.S. gave in the movies.

One thing admirable is that T.M.S worked with all composers on an equal note and infact when he worked with M.S.V and Ramamoorthy, he yet again delivered a lot of hits. Some of the hits would ofcourse include ‘Accham Enbadhu’ from the movie Mannadhi Mannan and ‘Aaru Maname aaru antha’ from the movie Andavan Kattalai.

 Another fun to listen song of T.M.S is ofcourse ‘Azhagiya Tamizh magal ival’ from Rickshawkaran, Engalukkum Kalam varum from the movie Pasamalar – which ofcourse is talked about till today for the beautiful affection shared between the brother and the sister.

T.M.S has definitely left behind a huge history to talk about that is ofcourse never ending. Time to tune in to his best songs here.
