Bichu Thirumala (Malayalam: ബിച്ചു തിരുമല) is an Indian lyricist and poet from Kerala, who works in the Malayalam film industry. He, along with O. N. V. Kurup, is known for creating the style of arranging beautiful words in Malayalam film songs. In Malayalam cinema, Thirumala led the group of lyricists who wrote songs for readymade tunes. In 1981, he won the Kerala State Film Award for the best lyricist for the films Thrishna and Thenum Vayambum. Thirumala won the same award for the second time in 1991, for the Rajasenan directed film Kadinjool Kalyanam.
Bichu Thirumala started his lyricist career in the 1972 Malayalam film Bhaja Govindam. After his modest beginning, Thirumala went on to become one of the most successful Malayalam lyricists and wrote songs for such notable music directors as Shyam, A. T. Ummer, Raveendran, G. Devarajan, and Ilaiyaraaja. In the 1970s he teamed up with music director A. T. Ummer to compose many sweet melodies.[clarification needed] Bichu Thirumala penned the lines for AR Rahman's one and only Malayalam music for film, Yodha. His first song "Brahma Muhoorthathil" became popular as a "lalitha gaanam" or light song since the movie Bhaja Govindam did not see the light of the day. Radio Ceylon used to air the song in the early-1970s.
Bichu was born to C. J. Bhaskaran Nair and Shasthamangalam Pattanikkunnu Veettil Parukutty Amma on February 13, 1941. He is married to Prasanna and they have a son named Suman Bichu.
