Only music director whose many movies had all tracks very popular. His songs for children, marriage, poverty, philosophy, bhakti, hope, romance, despair are still popular among old songs of 50's, 60's, 70's. He has given music to some of Malayalam films also by the name of Bombay Ravi and won awards but his contribution was never recognized at national level.

The word 'Simply superb' suits for him only.

Your music is different in the industry

He is new to this scene. I'm sure in coming days he will definitely come up in this list. At present he is in the 21st place. Watch out for his music in the new Rajini starer yet un-named movie from director Ranjith.

Ousepachhan is an Indian film composer who mainly sets scores for Malayalam films. He is a recipient of National Award, Filmfare Award and Kerala State Film Awards for his numerous film soundtrack albums and background scores.


The legendary music duo brothers. They set a melody trend. Once I read in a newspaper that SPB sir has mentioned it is the Kannada film industry which is giving more and more melodious songs than any other film industry! Rajan-Nagendra dua are the music composers to whom SPB sir sang maximum songs in kannada. What a lovely music... love you and your music sir...

He is a Best Music Director in Tamil


The guy who composed films like Aashiqui 2 and Murder 2 should be at least in top 10.

Mithoon should be placed a lot higher up. This list is meaningless

Some brilliant songs like Tum hi ho, meri aashiqui, maula meri; some songs in films like kalyug, anwar, train, zeher, etc were composed by him...

He would be the first

JS is definitely a big league music composer. What the hell are big league directors doing?

Joshua Sridhar is an extremely good composer. He needs good directors to work with.

Hope he teams up with big production houses.

He is good. But hasn't been very lucky so far.
