Remembering Na. Muthukumar the complete modern poet - lyricist

Monday, August 14, 2017 • Tamil Comments

A year has passed since the untimely demise of Na. Muthukumar but it’s heartwarming to hear his name mentioned often by his friends and collaborators like directors Vijay, Ram, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Seeman, GVP, Selvaraghavan and others.

For the modern music lovers, Na. Muthukumar will forever remain as the complete modern poet-lyricist who captured feelings and sculpted them into music to perfection. If both versions “Ninaithu ninaithu parthen’ from ‘7G Rainbow Colony’ will drive a stiletto of love and its pangs into your hearts, his “Kadhal yaanai” from ‘Anniyan’ will put you in yo yo mode. His “Akkam pakkam yaarum illa” from ‘Kreedam’, “Paravaiye Engu Irukkirai’ from ‘Kattradhu Tamil’ and the two National Award winning “Azhagu” in ‘Saivam’ and “Anandha Yaazhai” from ‘Thangameengal’ are just a few drops from the ocean that Muthukumar has left behind and he will continue to live in his words that will always be resonating in some part of the land where Tamil is spoken.
