[edit] Career

Before coming to Cinema Deva worked for some time in the Television field. In those days Deva's brothers were working in the musical troupes of Illayaraja and other music directors as instrumentalists. But Deva took special interests for self-improvement in his profession and at the same time he was looking for chances to enter movies. But the benefits of those efforts didn't bear fruits that easily. Only after much hardship he managed to enter the field with the help of some friends and his four brothers. Just after his entry the production work of those films for which negotiations were on for fixing Deva as the music director couldn't get completed and some other films with his music couldn't be released at all.

Deva continued his efforts to knock every polls and pillars for an opening which finally began yielding results in the year 1989. His first film "Manasukkeththa Maharaasaa" was released in 1989. Even though this film was not a hit in box office he was called to work on the movie "Vaikaasi Poranthaachu". This was a huge hit and Deva was praised for his work. After the release of "Vaikaasi Poranthaachu" his name became a common one all across the Tamil community. After this he was flooded with offers from many production houses for their upcoming projects.

So far he has composed music for more than 400 films which include Tamil Telugu and Malayalam films. He is also famous for his compositions for religious films. He was widely acclaimed for his scores for Rajinikanth starrer Basha.
