Renowned film lyricist Girish Puthenchery passed away on Feb 10, 2010. This 48 year old poet has contributed to some of Malayalam’s best known songs.

Girish had also scripted for blockbuster hits such as “Vadakkunnathan.” He wrote lyrics for over 2,500 songs spanning more than 300 Malayalam films.
