The Drama ‘Babukka’ narrated the story of the one and only M.S. Baburaj. It was a homage to the genius of the man whose compositions continue to enchant music lovers even decades after his death.
M. S. Baburaj a.k.a Babukka represents everything evergreen in Malayalam film music. He is the composer of several timeless melodies that the Malayali hums across three generations. But it remains a sad fact that this music-magician died an impoverished man at 57.
The Raju Koorkancherry Smaraka Kalakendram of Thrissur recapped Baburaj’s life story in a biographical play ‘Babukka,’ which was enacted at the Vyloppilly Sanskriti Bhavan in Thiruvananthapuram.
