Have you heard the song "Akale Akale" - a malayalam song in the music album "Akale"? Have you heard the song "Kandu Kandu" from Mampazhakkalam ? Have you heard the songs "Chentharmizhi" and "Raakkilithan" from Perumazhakaalam?
If you answer "yes" to all the above questions - that means you must have heard the name M.Jayachandran, my favourite music director in Malayalam, who is associated with all the songs I have mentioned above.
Music director M.Jayachandran recently won a filmfare award for the best music director for Perumazhakaalam. Just listen to "Akale Akale" (http://www.musicindiaonline.com/p/x/orOutj4tndNvwrOupt7D/) and you will know why I have dedicated a seperate thread to this talented music director.
Unfortunately, many think that M. Jayachandran is the famous malayalam singer Jayachandran :), which is not true.
