She has sung almost 200 films in Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada. She became famous through the song ‘Ambilipoovattom Ponnuruli’ from the film ‘Ennu Swantham Janakikutty’. Her song ‘Thannerai Kathalikkum’ from the film Mr Homeo was a hit. ‘Odathandil Thalam Kottum’ from Pazhassi Rajai, ‘Dhum Dhum Dhum Dureyetho’ from Rakkilipattu, ‘Alare Govinda’ from Kakkakuyil and ‘Thalam Poyi Thappum Poyi’ from Ayyappanum Koshy were also quite famous.

She had also sang for more than hundred audio cassettes in Malayalam and Tamil. She had accompanied many famous singers for ganamelas organised abroad.

Her immense ability to sing in a way reminiscent of the voice of K B Sundarambal singing ‘Jnanapazhathe Pizhinthu’ also made her famous. The then chief minister Jayalalithaa who witnessed her singing this at an awards function came to the dais and presented her gold chain of 10 sovereigns.
