Gopi Sunder, born into a musical family, was an associate to the composer Ouseppachan for long time.[1] Sunder's father was a friend of Ouseppachan, which made Sunder a leading member in the troupe of the prolific composer.[1] In the popular songs like "Aankhon mein teri'" (Om Shanti Om) and "Ek Main Aur Ek Tu Hai" (Bluffmaster), keyboard programming was done by him. His break in films came when director Roshan Andrews approached him with an offer to compose the Background score for his movie Notebook which made him one of the most demanded background scorers in the Malayalam movie industry. He then went on to compose the background score for the super hit movie Big B, starring Mammootty, which lead to a big break in film industry for him. Noted director Sibi Malayil approached him for composing the soundtrack and BGM for his Mohanlal starrer Flash. His next project as a composer was in Amal Neerad's big budget movie Sagar Alias Jacky Reloaded. His work in this movie was praised well by the audience. The songs he composed for Amal Neerad's Anwar rocked the charts for many continuous weeks. His critically and commercially acclaimed songs and BGMs in the Malayalam Film Ustad Hotel made him one of the leading composers in the film industry.
