S.M. Subbiah Naidu, brother of S.M. Sriramulu Naidu, is one of the finest composers of South India. His contribution is invaluable. Not only he is a composer, but also very good conductor, orchestrator, and what not. He is considered as O.P. Nayyar of South India. His tunes will be very very catchy, his songs instant hits. He has made Chandrababu a great singer in the song Kungumappoove konchum puraave. He would leave no stone unturned to bring the best of his singers. Till now, the best of S.Janakia is Singaara Velane Deva which was composed by him. He innovated the concept of voice with Nagaswaram. Let us bring the best of his compositions.

Congrats for opening this thread Sir !

SMSN & Pattukoattai Kalyanasundaram was a great combo - eg. Malaikkallan etc., isn't it Sir??? Pls correct me if I'm wrong.

Would like to know more about SMSN.

Nadodi Mannan is one of the best from Subbaih Naidu.

Thank you Dear Joe and Mohan,
As I said some of the outstanding contributions of SMS begin with Nadodi Mannan. Each and every composition is a gem. Particularly, the song Kadu velanjenna machan, namakku kaiyum kalum thane micham, sung by TMS and P Bhanumathi had become legendary and when MGR assumed office as CM, this song almost became a guideline for his rule. Such was its impact. I am giving below a list of films composed by him. This is only a comprehensive one and a few films might have been left out. Stalwarts like TFML, GSRK, Madhu, and other friends, may throw light on it.
1. Aasai Mugam(1965)
2. Abhimanyu (with C.R. Subbaraman) (1948)

21. Maragatham(1959)
22. Marma Yogi (with C.R. Subbaraman) (1951)
23. Mohini (with C.R. Subbaraman) (1948)
24. Mutthuchippi(1968)
25. Naadodi Mannan(1958)
26. Naalum Therindhavan(1968)

Hi Raghavendra,

Wonderful thread on SMS, the guru of MSV. He deserves it.

Did Thirumanam have two MDs, SMS and TGL? News to me. Anyway the songs in this movie were simply out of this world TMS sung two of his very best solos in this film and they were: Mangiyathor Nilavinile Kanavilithu Kanden (Bharatiyar song) and Ennamellam Ore Idathaye Naaduthe (wonderful composition in the raga Sahana, my personal TFM favourite in this raga).

What abt another great TFM solo, Inbam Yaavume Thunbag Agume Idhuthan Vaazhvin Anubavame? From Thirumanam, isn't it? There was a lovely duet by AMR and Jikki too "Thanga nilavil kendai irandu thulli thirivadundo".

Can anyone give online links to these fantastic songs?

Thank you Sri TFML,
Pirandha Naal Indru Pirandha Naal, the subprabatham of Ceylon Radio, Pudhusu idhu pudhusu from Sabash Thambi,Azhagile Kani rasam, Samaiyalukkum maiyalukkum from Pennai Vaazha Vidungal, Paithiyakkaran pathum solvan, Azhaga irundadhu nethu, Raja veettu pennaanalum from Raja Veettu Pillai, all these were super hits during those days. Thank you for reminding them and as you said there may be a few more films. In fact I would like to bring out the filmography for each music director which am already started with the two websites (i) http://mellisai.tripod.com for Viswanathan-Ramamurthi and (ii) www.freewebs.com/mellisaimannartkr for T.K. Ramamurthi. And heard that Sri Ragapravaham Sundar is bringing out a detailed website on TFM to be launched shortly. All the best for him. Coming to SMS, Asaipattadhu nanalla and Padaithan boomiyai iraivan from Eindhu Latcham is also a hit song, and if I remember correct, Nalum Therindhavan is also by SMS, which contains such hits Nari ondru sirikkindradhu, nilavukke pogalam van nilavukke, etc. He has given a minimum of two to three hits in each of his films.
Thank you for your encouraging words,
With regards, sincerely,

Dear Sri TFML,
Your words make me a more responsible person and I am afraid if at all these words suit me. Whatever little memory of TFM I have, I want to share it with the next gen. That's all. Irrespective of the generations, every composer has God's gifts. Whomever it is, from G.Ramanahan, S.V. Venkataraman to today's Vijay Antony, every body is a creator. If we point their outstanding contributions and appreciate them, definitely it will give them a boose to bring more such. Since I am not very well versed with the present day songs, I am not able to write about them. Moreover, today there is no problem for archiving or documenting because every thing is digitised. But the hard work of past generation mds need to be taken to the next generation and that's where I want to contribute whatever little part I could. SMS is one such genius who needs vast coverage and analyses of his songs. I have also started a separate thread for R. Govardhan. As there are threads for singers, it is better we have threads for mds and lyricists too, so that the focus gets more on the creativity. We need to discuss many unknown mds, Rajagopal, R.Parthasarathy, M.S. Gnanamani, Chidambaranathan, C.N. Pandurangan, Diwakar, etc. Hope it is done in the future.
Coming to Vairaakkiyam, there is another song, Vanathai Kadavlu Thalaiyal alandhan, which tune is remiscent of Chinna Kannan Thottathu Poovaaga from Sendhoora Poove.
Raghavendran.

Hi,

Maragatham had another great song, by TMS and Radha-Jayalakshmi "Kannukkulle Ennai Paaru". I have read somewhere that the JPChandrababu song "Kunguma Poove" was set to music by TGL for another movie but was used in Maragatham, similar to what happened with the famous AMR-Jikki duet of "Gulebagawali" "Mayakkum Malai" which was actually a composition of KVM but was used in a movie in which VR duo were the MDs.

In Thirumanam if TGL also co-composed with SMS would like to know who was the creator of "Ennammellam Oor Idathaye", "Mangiyathor Nilavinile" and "Inbam Yaaavume" three top solos of TMS, easily among his very best.

Yes, Rajesh. Great star cast. Wonder whether the movie with excellent songs, including a melodious duet "Thanganilavil Kendai Irandu Thulli Thirivadundo" was a success. That was by the real-life jodi AMR and Jikki. Also wonder why SMS chose TMS to sing three solos, all great nos mind you, for Gemini when in those days it was AM Raja who ruled the roost as the singing voice of "Kaadal Mannan". I agree TMS has sung some other great songs for Gemini in those days like "Ennarumai Kaadalikku" in "Ellorum Innanattu Mannar", "Vaazhndalum Yesum" in "Satharam" and "Thillai Ambala Nataraja" in the movie I can't recollect off hand. Still three solos for TMS in a Gemini film in those days looks a bit incongruous, does not not?

Hi all,

Continuing the very interesting discussion abt SMS, one of his landmark albums was surely "Annayin Aanai", a wealth of superb songs with the TMS solo "Annayai Pol" and the wonderful TMS-PS duet "Kanavin Maya Logathile" being the icing on the cake. Not to forget the melodious P Leela song "Neeye Gadhi Eeswari". Wonderful compositions, all. And Savitri looks bewitching in the dream song "Kanavin Maya" crooning with the stylish Sivaji Ganesan. One of the best-ever dream sequences in TFM. But that's one of the few scenes of romance in the movie as son Sivaji is bent upon avenging his father Sivaji's murder right through the movie by kidnapping murderer Ranga Rao and imprisoning him in the dungeon, a 'la' Alexander Dumas-style. Clearly more of grey in this character etched by the master.
