MS Viswanathan Biography

Viswanathan, hailing from an orthodox Malayali family, with parents Subramanian and Narayanikutty, in Manayangath house in Elappully village in Palakkad, Kerala, India. He lost his father when he was four. He was saved by his grandfather when his mother decided to kill him and herself as an escape from abject poverty and lack of support. He sold foodstuff in a movie theater during his childhood and later learned music from Neelakanda Bhagavathar. He gave his first stage performance in Trivandrum, when he was 13 years old. Despite his Keralite background, he established a prolific film music composing career in the Tamil film industry. His first score was for the film Jenova. He dominated film music composing in the South Indian film industry during the 1960s and 1970s and together with Tiruchirapalli Krishnaswamy Ramamurthy he has composed scores for over 700 films. His achievements range from introducing fresher melodies, style and orchestration approaches to incorporating various genres of what is now called world music into Indian cinema music. He has sung over 500 of his own songs, as well as those of other music directors like V. Kumar, Shankar Ganesh, Ilayaraaja, Gangai Amaran, Deva and A. R. Rahman. He has also scored music for many non-film albums and for political campaigns. His achievements include appearances in numerous films and television series. He often worked with the well-known Tamil poet and lyricist Kannadasan. It may be a strange coincidence, both are born on the same date, MSV being one year younger. In recent times, Viswanathan has focused on composing devotional music and anchoring as judge in Malayalam TV reality shows.

Tamil cinema songs composed by MSV attracted not only the Taminadu people, but the entire south Indians.Tamil people living in all parts of world enjoyed his songs.I know some friends staying in US and canada are habituated and enjoys MSV songs regularly before sleep. The songs by MSV and T.K.Ramamurthy combination is un comparable.The western music BGMs generated from the original music instruments (nowadays all music by key boards) by the orchestra members are exellent outcomes.Each song, they try for Western Bangos rather than convensional Tabla,Dolac,mrithangam,etc. If not suits,they introduce Bangos in BGMS..Each song was created and recorded like a project work. They are the people changed the Carnatic oriented tunes to western and classical tunes. MSV,Ramamurthy,Kannathasan,T.M.S and P.Suseela and all musicians sit together and made each songs as Gems. .It is very unfortunate, these two are separated in 1965.If this would have not happened,much more beautifull songs could have created.Anyway each south indian will not forget the word the mastero MSV. He will be remembered till Tamil Cinema exits.

எம்.எஸ்.விஸ்வநாதன் இசையமைத்த படங்களின் பட்டியலில் பல தவறாக உள்ளது. எடுத்துக்காட்டாக மேல்மருவத்தூர் அற்புதங்கள், மீண்டும் பராசக்தி... பிற இசையமைப்பாளர்களின் படங்கள் ஏராளமாக இதில் நிறைந்துள்ளன. சரிசெய்யுங்கள்.

MUSIC DIRECTOR MEANS IS NONE BUT MELLISAI MANNAR M.S.VISWANATHAN

SRIDHAR, on 24-04-2014

A self made music legend.Had all his training in music from my place, Kannur, the place of Gurus which had even made president of Singapore,Shri.Devan Nair. Grew up into a legend along with time , with his gifted talent ,sheer hard work and innovative ideas. Provided path for attaining eminence to his associates. Made immortal tunes for songs such as Allayamaniyin.....,Sithukkuruvu......,Adi ennadi Rakkamma.......,Rajavin parvai........,Ragangal pathinaru....... ,Swargnandini Swapna Viharini... ( Malayalam), Aa Nimishathinte nirvrithiyil......( Malayalam).... so so many..... MGR,s popularity, if were on account his films, the success of his films were on account of MSV's songs alone. Especially the 1973 released Ulagam Sutrum Valibhan, had been a super mega hit with MSV's songs, which I had even seen from my native place in1973. It was a hit in Kerala as well those days! Had MSV not been there many of the celebrities in Tamil film industry would not have attained prominence. His departure is an irreparable loss to all music lovers....an end of a saga. But his music will remain for ever, so will be his memory.

MSV is the dictionary for Music composers. The last part of of his name ending ''Nathan'' can be linked to Isaikku Nathan = MS vishwanathan

Supreme Music Director. Wonderful tunes from mellisai mannar. No remember to his tunes.

showkathullah T, Thanjavur on 31-05-2016

For more than 50 years I have been listening to the music of M S V. The style in which he composes each song-raga based and scale based- feel a new experience, M S V style is the only style no one can imitate or copy. It is he who brought Dr. Balamurali sir to the Film. Two great Gurus, No M S V will be born ever for the coming 1000 years. We lost the a great soul and a great Guru. I feel it is our luck to be living in the great M S V 's time. May the God almighty give peace to his ATHMA.

Unnikrishrishnan, cochin on 26-07-2015

Mr. M.S. Viswanathan is a Musical Genius and this view has been endorsed by all the persons connected with the music industry. What amazing tunes and chord progression has this man given over the last so many years. His joint venture with another great master Mr. T.K. Ramamurthy have been simply wonderful. In short Music means MSV and MSV means Music. Longlive this great human.
