Deva Biography

Deva is an Indian film composer and singer. He has composed songs and provided background music for Tamil films in a career spanning about 20 years. Many know his gaana songs, written mostly using Madras Tamil. He is widely acknowledged as the "Father of Gaana Genre" in Tamil film industry.

Music director Deva has the reputation of having composed music for so many number of films within the ambit of a very short period! He got introduced as film music director in the film Manasukkeththa Maharaasa, in the year 1989. In the intervening years he has composed music for a total of more than 400 films. His son Srikanth Deva is also a music director in the industry.

Deva, was born to the couple M. C. Chokkalingam and M. C. Krishnaveni. Even at the small age, Deva was attracted towards the world of music. Teaming with Chandra Bose, he staged so many musical programmes. He started learning classical music under Dhanraj and successfully finished a course in Western music conducted by London Trinity Music college. His son Srikanth Deva also is a music director, as do his brothers, who have formed the duo, Sabesh-Murali. Moreover, his nephew, Jai is an actor.

Before coming to Cinema, Deva worked for some time in the Television field. In those days Devas brothers were working in the musical troupes of Illayaraja and other music directors as instrumentalists. But Deva took special interests for self-improvement in his profession and at the same time he was looking for chances to enter movies. But the benefits of those efforts didnt bear fruits that easily. Only after much hardship he managed to enter the field with the help of some friends and his four brothers. Just after his entry, the production work of those films, for which negotiations were on for fixing Deva as the music director, couldnt get completed and some other films with his music couldnt be released at all.

Deva continued his efforts to knock every polls and pillars for an opening which finally began yielding results in the year 1989. His first film, "Manasukkeththa Maharaasaa" was released in 1989. Even though this film was not a hit in box office he was called to work on the movie "Vaikaasi Poranthaachu". This was a huge hit and Deva was praised for his work. After the release of "Vaikaasi Poranthaachu", his name became a common one all across the Tamil community. After this, he was flooded with offers from many production houses for their upcoming projects.

So far he has composed music for more than 400 films which include Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films. He is also famous for his compositions for religious films. He was widely acclaimed for his scores for Rajinikanth starrer Basha. His other famous compositions include Annamalai and Baasha both starring Rajnikanth which helped him rise to the level of top composers in Tamil industry for.

He has recently made a special appearance in the film,"Modhi Vilayadu".Famous veteran music director M. S. Viswanathan conferred Deva with title, "Thenisai Thendral" for his contributions.In 1990, he received his first Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Music Director. He was confined with Tamil Nadu Governments Kalaimamani Award in the year 1992. Again in 1995, the film Aasai enabled him to receive another state film award. For Baasha, he got the Tamil Nadu Arts and Cultural Academy Award. He has also been honoured by awards from popular journals like Dinakaran, Cinema Express and Screen.
