Biography :

M Venkataraju, one of the finest music directors of Kannada film world, who had a short span of life. He composed very good tunes for few movies due to his sudden demise. He was comparable to G.K. Ventakesh and if he was with us for long then there could have been a very good competition to give us more good songs. One technique he used was Ugabhogas (one of ways in Kannada poetry – Daasa Sahitya has used this more) in the beginning of the songs or just the Ugabhogas were his specialty (SwarnaGowri, Kanakadasa has good examples). He was brother of noted music director M.Rangarao (who famous for Saakshatkaara, Bandhana,etc.).
