We know these terms well but anyone who have known the word ‘Physics’ at least once in their life time should be familiar with these. But you know what? There is this exemplary person who created wonders in music hailing from this seriously boring backdrop! When someone can at least imagine in their wildest dreams that one can become a music director with a post-graduation in Astrophysics, let us mention the name Ravindra Prasad Patnaik, popularly known as R.P.Patnaik.

If he is better known to the masses with his folk numbers like Gajuvaka Pilla, Ranu ranantoone, Rangobothi etc, he is a master at melodies. Neekosam, Nuvve Nenu, Mansantha Nuvve, Jayam, Santosham, Nee Sneham etc are sheer testimonials for the statement. An ardent fan of Maestro Ilayaraja, he is a unique feather in the cap of Telugu Cinema Music. Crafting a niche for himself in the world of commercial cinema, he has never shied away from experimenting. His international album on time signatures [first of its kind in the world] Chjakra The Signature of Time has been even recognized by the prestigious Grammy Academy and now he is the member of this revered academy. He has even introduced above 25 singers that includes ace singers like Karthik, Ranjith, Mallikarjun, Kausalya et al.

A creative person doesn’t believe in boundaries. R.P hasn’t limited himself to music but in fact rediscovered himself in acting, screen-writing, directing and even producing. Films like Seenu Vasanthi Lakshmi, Broker, Friendsbook etc have introduced us a new R.P. He is now coming with yet another diversified film named Thulasidalam.

Apart from various Nandi, Filmfare and other awards he has won, iQlikmovies wishes him more awards, sound health and a great future. Happy Birthday R.P!
