Deva - Profiles of Music Director

So far he has composed music for more than 200 films which include Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada films. Yet, he hasn't given up composing music also for 'bhakthi' films! Above all, Deva composed music for the films acted by Tamil cinema's important personality, Super Star Rajinikanth, which added to the great popularity of Deva. There's an important reason also for the cinefield's great personalities opting for Deva for composing music for their films! It's this: fame couldn't blind his eyes and he never forgets people. He mingles with them with humane approach! As a result, he composed music for "Annaamalai", "Bhaashaa", "Arunachalam" and wrote new success history, rising to the No. 1 spot among the music directors in Tamil.

Behind Deva's great success, there are his brothers also, which fact he won't deny too! He says: 'If I stand at this height as a music director, the supportive reason behind this is my brothers. They too work hard like me. That's why it was possible for me to accomplish the task of composing music for such huge number of films! So to say, all my 4 brothers have their own share in my present success!'

As a brother Deva showers upon them (brothers) his heart-felt felicitations and his brothers, on their part, continue to take greater pains professionally, to add to the well-meaning achievements of Deva in the future also! This quality of Deva has enhanced his image among the top brass of the cineworld! Hence, veteran music director M.S.Viswanathan has conferred upon Deva the most suitably coined title, "Thenisai Thentral". As if doing full justification to this title, Deva's tunes and musical scores never fail to pour sweet honey in the form of melodious songs into our 'yearning' ears! Among the films whose music was composed by Deva, 7 became silver jubilee hits! 100 days films were 34.
