K.V. Mahadevan died on 21 June 2001 in Chennai when he was 83.


His music assistant known as Puhalendi in Telugu film industry was with him like a life partner throughout his life, though scored few films on his own. Mahadevan-Puhalendi Pukazhenthi as music director duo scored music for 1993 N. T. Rama Rao movie Srinatha Kavi Sarvabhowmudu directed by Bapu (director).


Music has no Language barriers. “Sisurvethi, pasurvethi, vethiganarasamphanihi” is a popular Sanskrit axiom which says that Music has the power to impress a child, animal, and the universe alike. As we can read from Climax song of film Sankarabharanam (1980 film), "Tatva Saadhana ku Satya Shodhana ku Sangeethame Sopanam" (Music is a Stair Case for attaining Enlightenment and truth discovery)


According to famous Director K. Raghavendra Rao opinion as expressed by him, Mama "Mahadevan" is "Saraswati Putra" and K. Chakravarthy is "Ekalavya". His 1977 film Adavi Ramudu (1977 film) was recorded as the highest grossing Telugu film of the 1970s. Director K. Raghavendra Rao 's father K. S. Prakash Rao mostly worked with Pendyala Nageswara Rao between 1950&1974. K. Chakravarthy too composed good music for music lover K. Raghavendra Rao previous movies Jyothi (1976 film) and Kalpana (1977 film).

But Production house Sathya Chitra earlier production Tahsildar Gari Ammayi music was scored by Mama. Based on their faith, Sathya chitra insisted and retained "Mama" for N. T. Rama Rao movie Adavi Ramudu (1977 film). Mama's composition "Krushi vunte Manushulu Rishi avutaaru" (Effort makes Humans Saints) stands testimony to all stake holders of this movie and to every one who believes in determination. "Yuva Chitra Arts" banner Producer K. Murari being ardent fan of "Mama" stopped producing movies ever since "Mama" called it a day in his career. Director Bapu (director), Producer S. Gopala Reddy , Director Kodi Ramakrishna and later in his career actor Mohan Babu loved working with "Mama". It would be tough to guess between "Swara Brahma" and Director "K. Viswanath" as to, who was elemental in whose fame. Combined effort returned laurels to art of Cinema. May be "Vidhaata talapuna prabhavinchinadi anaadi Jeevana Vedam". Contemporary musician P. Bhanumathi criticized "Mama" about his score for movie Sankarabharanam (1980 film) as lighter version Carnatic music Raga 's rendered by him. Later she even went on to sing a song "Shree Surya Narayanaa Melukoo" for "Mama" in his 1984 movie Mangammagari Manavadu .


Telugu Film Industry crowned him with title "Swara Brahma" (Creator/Father of Musical notes). His song "mama mama mama" from 1962 Telugu movie Manchi Manasulu became popular those days,as a result, Telugu film industry with love started calling him "Mama" since then.


A contemporary of M. S. Viswanathan and T. K. Ramamoorthy, starting his career in 1942 with Manonmani, Mahadevan scored music for over six hundred feature films, spanning four decades, and has garnered two National Film Awards, three Andhra Pradesh state Nandi Awards, a Tamil Nadu State Film Award, and a Filmfare Award South. He was also conferred the title of "Thirai Isai Thilagam" (Pride of Cine Music Directors) in Tamil cinema. His assistant Pukazhenthi is credited to have usually writing the score and arranging the orchestra, after Mahadevan composes a tune.
