Biography
 
Career

K.V.Mahadevan was born in tamil Iyer family in Kanyakumari district. A contemporary of M.S. Viswanathan T.K. Ramamurthy KVM has scored music for over 600 films spanning four decades after starting his career in the 1950s with Avan Amaran. Health reasons hastened the end of his career in the mid- nineties. His last film is Murugane thunai in 1991. During this period he scored music for
More
about 250 TamilTelugu films.

The special features of his compositions were: giving primary importance to lyrics and composing music that is perfectly suited to lyrics; always keeping a base in the Carnatic music systems; and giving independence to singers and other assistants to freely contribute ideas for improving his compositions.

Some of the famous Tamil movies for which he composed include Adimai Penn Thiruvilayadal Vaanampadi Thillaana Moganambal Kandhan Karunai Muthalali.

His most famous compositions in Telugu were in the movies directed by K. Viswanath Swathi Kiranam Sankarabharanam.

He produced many hit songs collaborating with legendary directors K. Viswanath including the multiple national award winning Sankaraabharanam. He is clearly the director with the most number of musical chart busters in more than 60 years of Telugu music and most of his movies went on to create box-office records as he was a part of the best technical teams of highly successful directors as K. Viswanath Adurti Subba Rao V. Madhusoodana Rao V.B. Rajendra Prasad K.S. Prakash Rao Bapu Balachander K. Bapaiah to name a few.

He is known as one of the very few to bring the purity of classical music into the masses. His songs gave primary importance to lyrics an important attribute that made the songs stand out time. His lyricists included all-time greats such as Acharya Atreya Arudra CNR Sirivennela Veturi Kosaraju Dasaradhi Srirangam Srinivasa Rao Devulapalli and Mysore Vasudevachari. He regularly directed maestro singers Ghantasala P. Suseela and Leela.

He was very reserved with the usage of singers thus giving numerous opportunities in grooming greats such as S. P. Balasubrahmanyam Yesudas Janaki Chitra & Vani Jayaram some winning the national award for best playback singing multiple times with his songs.
