R.N. Jayagopal 84th Birth Anniversary Tribute Video

I’m Ravi Prashanth Jayagopal – the son of legendary Kannada Lyricist, Writer & Director, late Sri R.N. Jayagopal. I made this video to celebrate his 84th birth anniversary on August 17, 2019.

Honestly, there was no way I could do justice to his 10,000+ song resume over his lifetime, including movies, janapada geethe, and devotional songs. And if I even tried, it would be over 10 hours long, and you probably won’t ever watch it :-).

So I did the best I could to summarize some of his greatest work, interwoven with stories from my childhood.

I am blessed that I was born to not just one of the most talented writers and lyricists ever, but also one of the, if not THE, greatest human being to ever walk this earth.

Great job and a fitting tribute to famous departed soul. Our generation heard only his name more times when had interest in listening to movie songs.
