Gireesh puthenchery had defeated the life with his songs  that piles up on his thoughts and vanishes within seconds. With kindness, he subdued the songs to his pen.

 Malayalam cinema's playback stage had that attachment with his life. After

Vayalar and P.Bhaskaran who had left over the Malayalam cinema's branch of music, there always he made his presence felt with his beautiful lyrics.

 Therefore their every song is known to Gireesh, that's why this South Indian lyrics writer went on to had a great time with Bollywood musician. Earlier when unfortunately Dassettan couldn't make it to the recording in Mumbai for that film, after that recording was re-arranged in Chennai and when Dassettan came to sing, Lakshmikant-Pyarelal left over all the responsibility of that song to Gireesh.

Ranjith's recommendation brought him the chance to write songs for director Jayaraj's movie "Johny walker". In that movie, a song called "Shanthami Rathriyeel" had brought him critical acclamation, which reflects his career in Malayalam cinema.

Ranjith's directorial movies like "Devasuram", "Aaram Thampuran", "Ravanaprabhu", "Nandanam" all includes his journey of golden era.

 In 1981, he joined Aakashavani to write scripts but before coming to the cinema. Gireesh wrote about 500 songs for the amateur dramas. In the interval of lyrics he wore the scriptwriter's face as well.

Later on he attended the funeral services of actor Cochin Haneefa, after returning from there he felt unwell. He was on the scripting work of the new film with Mammootty, but before that god's call was arrived.
