The Hindu (March 4, 2005)

You catch Ramesh Vinayakam just as the composer is working on a new, meditative project for Sivaratri. "It is going to be an album of Sivan slokas," he says. Ramesh entered the composing scene with devotional music. Like Gangai Amaran, Ramesh is a composer and lyricist, though he does not always write the lyrics for his songs. "I think the two should go hand in hand ... done simultaneously"Pratidhwani" a compilation of songs on 10 deities, was Ramesh's first devotional album. S. P. Balasubramaniam lent his voice for all the scintillating numbers. Ramesh is a music director in films, but the craving to make devotionals is always there, he says. "My cassettes such as `Shambo Mahadeva' are still available in the market." The entire album of Ramesh's "Krishna Janardhana" has been made in Malayalam as "Radha Madhavam" with lyrics written by Sreekumaran Thambi. "I feel the sustaining power of the genre is more ... Jagjit Singh's "Ma" or M. S. Subbulakshmi's Suprabhatham can never lose their freshness or appeal," says Ramesh. The musician has used the piano, shehnai and santoor in his album on the Lord of Sabarimala, "Aaha Oho Ayyappa" - a novelty that gives an appealing sheen to his music.

News from The Hindu dt.Nov 16 2001:
Ramesh Vinayakam has scored music for a few Telugu films. This is his first film in Tamil.

Director    : Pragadeesh Year         : 2003
Artistes    : Jeevan, Gajala
Producers : Maayapuri Screen
The Hindu (March 4, 2005)

Ramesh Vinayakam, who makes his full-fledged debut in Tamil with "University" has composed "Thottu Thottu" for "Yeh! Nee Romba Azhaga Irukey" and has four Telugu films under his belt. The composer, like his predecessors, draws from different musical styles and genres to come up with some melodious numbers. A highlight the album is "Kathalai Valarthai", where one gets to hear Chitra at her subdued best. It is heartening to listen to her voice after quite a long time. Ramesh Vinayakam's vocals complement her rich voice. The other number, which stands out, is "Kiss Adippom" (Tippu, Mathangi and Ramesh Vinayakam)... it is the coming together of byla and Tamil folk (tappan koothu) with energetic foot-tapping percussion beats. Listen to it and you're bound to break into a jig. Of the other tracks, "Vimmavey" (Ramesh and Gopika Poornima) reminds one of a Broadway musical number while the guitar riffs in the rock `n roll "Nenjay" (Karthik) have shades of Deep Purple. The lyrics by Vairamuthu reflect a joyous and youthful spirit. An album that is very strong on melody. Definitely worth a listen.

'Chords & Notes' from The Hindu
Nala Damayanthi
Director    : Mouli Year         : 2004
Artistes    : Madhavan, Geethu Mohandass
Producers : Raajkamal International Films

Worked with the legendary Kamalhassan, who also rendered a song in English ('Stranded on the Streets')
Kamal Haasan sings in English : Chennai was abuzz with the English-Tamilsong Kamal had sung for Nala Damayanti (Madhavan, Geetu Mohandas) under the baton of composer Ramesh Vinayakam.

The Hindu (March 4, 2005)

The success of re-recording lies in utilising the power of silence, which can at times enhance the significance of certain scenes. Composer Ramesh Vinayakam has understood it only too well. His music wafts through the scenes when necessary, reaches a crescendo when warranted and most importantly knows when to keep mum. Three of the four songs in the film make a tremendous impact - Kamal's English (where the actor's diction needs special mention) and Tamil numbers, Sharad's "Pei Muzhi" refrain and the melodious duet from Chinmayi and Ramesh Vinayakam, "Enna Idhu ... " The euphonious use of violins, the veena (in the country western type Kamal number) and the flute make the music as inspiring as the M. S. Viswanathan songs of yore

from "The Hindu"
Azhagiye Theeye
Director    : Radha Mohan Year         : 2004
Artistes    : Prasanna, Navya Nair, Prakash Raj
Producers : Duet Films

A beautiful film - which won accolades for each and every artiste, technician involved - the song 'Vizhigalin' winning great accolades and reviews.

The Hindu (March 4, 2005)

Kavivarman's "Vizhigalin Aruginil" is captivating with the lyricist dwelling so elaborately on the subject of love, without once using the word ("kadhal") anywhere in the number. With Ramesh Vinayakam's scintillating score the words gain greater lustre.Ramesh Vinayakam moves away from the usual noisy tunes one gets to hear in films nowadays and composes some pleasant numbers.
