S.S. KUMAR T.M. Soundararajan at a recording theatre in Chennai in December 2008.

Whether it was melodies, lyrics loaded with political statements or philosophy, folksy tunes, or a raga-based song, T.M. Soundararajan’s (1923-2013) singing was unparalleled. His voice captured the nuances and majesty of the Tamil language completely. By B. KOLAPPAN

TMS was a legend whose popularity was unparalleled in Tamil cinema. His rendering of devotional songs and his ability to modulate his voice to suit the actor for whom he was singing playback remains unmatched till today. There can never be another MKT, GNB or PBS there can never be another TMS.
