  1. Poovachal had capability of writing lyrics in very short time. Remember reading that once he got an emergency call from studio while he was packing for a trip. Train was one hour away. and he was able to complete it and reach station on time. Most of the 80’s 90’s golden songs has his stamp. I believe he is mostly into construction biz now

    1. Hi Rajesh,

      Thats true, he seemed to have this awesome capability of churning out stuff that somehow turned itself into chartbusters though the lines sometimes had you looking around for directions 🙂
