Vairamuthu Ramaswamy or Vairamuthu has been one of the most prolific and contemporary Tamil poet and lyricist to serve Kollywood. Born in 1953 in a small village called Mettur in Tamil Nadu, he started writing poetry at a very early age. Besides the village ambience the real poet within him was inspired by the Tamil Rationalist movements of the sixties. The speeches of Periyar & Anna, the writings of Karunanidhi and the creations of eminent poets like Bharathi, Bharathidasan and Kannadasan had a great influence on him as a youngster. He began his film career as a lyricist in the Tamil film ‘Soolam’ (1980). Since the last three and half decades he has successfully penned nearly 6000 songs and enjoys the distinction of associating with all the big names in Kollywood. His partnership with composer A. R. Rahman has resulted in delivering many box office chartbusters. He was bestowed upon the ‘Kalaimamani’ award by the Government of Tamil Nadu for his contribution to Tamil literature. Besides receiving the Padmashri in 2003 and Padmabhushan in 2014, respectively, he has also been awarded the National Film Award for ‘The Best Lyricist’ six times, the most by any Indian lyricist, so far.
