Please suggest a book with comprehensive list and lyrics of Maharaja Swathi Thirunal compositions. Also where can I get a copy of the Malayalam movie on him?
Thank You

There is a comprehensive book by T.K. Govinda Rao which has lyrics, meaning (gist of each section), as well as notations. I am not sure if it is available in bookstores - if you are in chennai or have someone in chennai, you can get it directly from Shri. TKG at his house in Indra Nagar

From the book:

Ganamandir Publications
Plot #16, 11th Cross Street, Indira Nagar, Chennai 20.

If you can go by MRTS, his house is a 5-10 min walk from the Indira Nagar MRTS station.
