You should hear G Ramanathan sing "Ejamaan petra selvame en chinna ejamaane". This song was tuned by KVM and sung by GR. It is laden with expression and shruthi purity and the diction is excellent. For the boost we give for cetain present day MDs who bray, GR has been to humble.
All GRs composition are par with Pure classical krithis and can be sung in a pure music forum in places like Music Academy! But unfortunately it has not happened.
Chakravarthi Thirumagal had great songs with GRs songs with a variety of songs sung by Sirkali and other singers.
Mukari a crying raga - was used in 'Ambigapathy' for a Romantic duet of Sivaji and Banumathy.
Today MDs make even happy ragas into sogams.
There is no replacement for GR.

The movie `MADHURAI VEERAN' has three songs with adopted tunes.
1.Eatchu pilaikum tholiley sarithana(TMS & Jikki) is same tune as Theena karuna karane by MKT Bagawathar
2.Avarkum enakun (Banumathy)is same as Unakkum Enakun(Jikki)in the film `Illara Jothi'.
3.Thaney Thannanna (cant remember the starting lines) by P.Leela & Jikki is a tune from Jikki's song `Earu poooti povaye anney chinnannaey' film Kalam Mari Pochu (Gemini Ganesh).
G.Ramanathan may have copied his own tunes in the first and second songs, but definitely lifted Master Venu's tune in the third song.
