The movie ‘Premloka’ brought him great success and popularity as a music director. From there, all Hamsalekha played were victory tunes. Almost all the songs and movies done with ‘Crazy Star’ Ravichandran are super hits.
Hamsalekha did not give a hit song to Bari Ravichandran. Dr. Right from Rajkumar’s movies to the current generation Yash movies, Hans has set the tune. He has told wisdom, done mischief, taught love, taught love through songs. All genres of music have been given. It can be said that the foremost music director in Indian cinema who composes music and writes lyrics himself is Hamsalekha.
Many awards have been won for this extraordinary talent of Hamsalekha. Hans has won many honors from Rashtra Award to Filmfare. Hamsalekha has received three times state award and one time national award. In addition to this, he has received the prestigious Filmfare Award six times.
