Default Malaysia Vasudevan passes away.

Veteran playback singer Malaysia Vasudevan passed away in a private hospital in Chennai on Sunday. He was admitted a few days before after he suffered cardiac arrest.


8,000 songs in Tamil.
4,000 songs in other South Indian languages.

Love his voice.

An excellent singer, neat actor too. Here is a favorite of mine:


This is the second instance of a good singer disappearing in recent times - Swarnalatha being the other.

A great actor, a fantastic singer and a fantastic comedian IMHO.

A little underrated in the Illayaraja - SPB era but has his own fan following.

Can Someone share a list of songs sung by the great MV?

Though a renowned singer, his roles as a constable in Thiruda Thiruda and the Father's character in Puvae Unakaga, will be remembered for a long time. May his soul RIP.

Good singer with unique voice , he was the voice of Rajni and his number Aasai nooru Vaigai from Adutha Vaarisu was my favourite song.

Yes, a different voice during the 80's when TMS was slowly fading away and SPB was picking up. My most favorite is same as Phoenix's- Kodai Kaala Katrre..!
A few weeks ago, there was a TV show wherein he was expressing his complete distress as the Tamil Cine world had let him down. He was struggling financially.
May his Soul rest in peace.
