Unfortunately, there are not too many compositions by TCR in Tamil. What could be immediately noticed is that , atleast in his songs that I know of , he did not use Ghantasala. "Then uNNum vaNdu" for Sivaji was sung by AMRaja, a super melody. My favourite has remained "MaNa naattiya medayil aadinen". He can be proud of the fact that his "ULLangaL ondragi thuLLum pothile" from punar jenmam was copied in Hindi "Yeh wada karo chaand ke saamne" sung by Mukesh. "Neerazhi mandapathil" is a superb song by SPB and PS probably in the late sixties. This song had different tunes for the stanzas and scale changes too. I will try to compile more about TCR.

M.D. for Meenda Swargam is T.Chalapathi Rao.

Another song worth discussing is "Neeraazhi mandapathil" sung by SPB and PS , tuned by T. Chalapathi Rao.

TCR did music for lakshadhikari, a song by ghantasaala and PS is there in real audio. http://www.geocities.com/Nashville/Opry/2325/mabbulo.ram

TCR and SRS did music for manchi manishi

a song in punar jenmam, uLLangaL onRAgi (AMR, jikki) is there in
