Subbudu reviews on
He has not mentioned anybody by name. Maharajapuram Vishwanatha Iyer was a musician of an enormous stature, however he was also noted for his humourous retorts. The ladies were embarrassed and asked me I were a music teacher. Of the three items performed by the exponent, Pitanjali's "Shambhu Natanam" stood out for its encompassing masculine feel. I did not, and do not, have an interest in watching sports — be it cricket or any other game, direct or on the TV. Courtesy: Sruti. Gandotra, we need people like you who can finance art and who do not actually patronise it! Sakharama Rao pitied the man for his poor understanding of musical knowledge despite his material wealth.
Ilayaraja's comments in Kumudam
Subramaniam, popularly known as Subbudu, was one of the most important dance and Soon Kalki the Tamil magazine started by Kalki Krishnamurthy and T. Sadasivam. published his first full-fledged review. A chance meeting with V K. In the s and s during the December Season, the audience waited not only to listen to concerts, but also to read Subbudu's reviews in.
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN TO TREAT Subbudu
In the world of film music - my memory of subbudu at his insulting best was the pithy review of Rahman's 'ennavale' song in Kadhalan.
He demonstrated that talent, to be meaningful, had to be harnessed to serve humanity. Though these ragas have like sounding names they are widely different.

So in my review I remarked that it was akin to coaxing a monkey sitting on a tree to come down! Neither of the vidwans knew the kriti and were reluctant to tell the Maharaja about their ignorance.
He forbade me from becoming a professional musician. Art critic Leela Venkataraman, noted the survival instincts of the man and threw light on the other side of the Maama who had often set "Kaveri on fire"! I got seven rupees and eight annas from the magazine as remuneration for my first music review.
'Subbudu Darbar' a book in two volumes (in Tamil) containing the raving reviews of this critic was released on the occasion. N. Vittal, Chief.
The next day the Bhagavatar asked my father if he could adopt Subbudu as his sishya and make him a full-fledged musician. So the two vidwans had not fooled the Maharaja after all and they felt mortified about the incident.
Celebrating the Centenary of Subbudu Simplicity
What would you call a critic who wishes the art to grow and who writes with passion what he sees with intensity? When I write something, it is easily understood by the common man, which would otherwise be impossible.
Mimicry came naturally to Subbudu. Like his father, Maharajapuram Santhanam was also quick witted and would make his audience laugh with his comebacks.
