V. Kumar (Tamil: வி.குமார்), known as Melody King, was introduced to Tamil film music by K. Balachander. He has his own style, which is clearly different from MSV and KVM at that time.

He has used S. P. Balasubrahmanyam for many of his songs. He has been the aasthana MD for K. Balachandar films. Before that, he scored music for his plays.

Songs like Kathoodu than nann pesuvan, Unnedam mayanguren, Madanorchanvam rathiyoodhan, Nann unnai vazhthi padugerean, Adduthathu ambujatthi are testimony to his talent.
