A versatile playback singer, Music Director. Soft, Scintillating, attractive voice. Very Strightforward in his approach which is a minus point in cinema industry. In those days of 50's he was an unique educated artist. He was adamant in his decisions, not liked by many coartists. Had he changed his quality with flexibility, He wouldn't have gone in exile from Tamil film music. He made a come back but that was not successful for him
Still, his songs are eternal. Raja is Raja always.
