For the sake of this discussion I will take into consideration only TFM since IR, as that was the loudest transition in TFM.
With the advent of IR, not only did TFM find authentic, folksy vernacular and new blood in its music but also in the writings of Gangai Amaran, Muthulingam, and Panju Arunaachalam (not quite a new blood, but he did majority of his writing during IR's early days) who wrote about new subject matter with a new eye that touched on the everyday life of the rural areas. The lyrics in the songs from Annakili, 16 Vayadhinilae, Kizhakkae Pogum Rayil, and Pudhiya Vaarppugal were a clear departure from the norm as far as subject matter is concerned and this added a new dimension, a freshness to TFM.
In the post-VM IR period, a key ingredient in most of the hit songs is a new writer: R.V. Udhayakumar, Pazhani Bhaarathi, the guy who wrote "Sempoovae", etc.
