I, as like most of you, listen to Tamil cine music everyday. I listen to the lyrics keenly, admire its beauty and sometimes laugh to myself . But my mind naturally goes to judge how well the lyrics go with the movie. In fact, sometimes just a single line would convey everything. Here are some of them which I liked so much in the way how its aptly fits the movie.
I am not mentioning lines from old movies as I think there are lllots and llots of situational and apt songs…only mid and new ones here:
‘Mandram vandha thenralukku manjam vara nenjam illaye’
This is the one which I observed long long ago but still my favorite line
A single line tells neatly about the lover’s ekkam that ‘kalyanam varaikkum vandha unakku kattil vara manasu illaayye’ nnu – movie’s essence.
‘Mottu onru malarndhida marukkum...................................kaatrin vetriyaa..’
In these lines the lyrics of the duet is in written a way that depicts that they have ego- kushi movie’s essence. And it’s implicitly said that there is nothing like victory / failure for either side when the final thing produced by them is great (here, meaning the love). In fact the lyrics of the whole song revolves around ego nicely..
In the song ‘ Ennai koncham maatri ‘, the lines
‘Ne killum pookalai naan soodi kollave en ennam indrae vandhache.. aanalum nerilee
eppothum polave iyalbaaka pesi povathu enraache’
The feeling of being in love but still hiding is so nicely articulated with a simple example. (Indha paatula ‘surya’va rasikkadha ponne irukka mudiyaadhu)
Another ‘love but hiding’ lines which I find to be great is in
Gentleman. In the song “en veetu thotathil” , the lines
Sollukkum theriyaamal sollathaan vandhene , sollukkul artham pola sollamal ninrene….
‘Oora therinjukitten ulagam purijukitten’
This song is so aptly in its place in the movie and it tells how deeply he is affected inside….
ennakku romba pidikkum
Varumai Niram sikappu:
In the song ’ Sippi irukkudhu … the lines
‘Mayakkam thandhadhu yaar, thamizho, amudho, kaviyo’..
These final lines nicely convey their attraction to each other in the movie .. ( athuvaa idhuvaa edhunnu?). Another final line saying love, in fact synchrony, is in
‘Un samyalaarayil song…’ the whole song is nice. Everywhere they say if u are that, am I this/ that? etc.. indicating that I am close to u .But no lines says till the end that they are synchronized. Even the penultimate line will say “ un valadhu kaiyil pathu viral ; en idhadhu kaiyil pathu viral’ indicating that there is something like u and me though their fingers are held together... but the last line ‘dhoorathu megam…thekulipom’ indicates nicely that they are synchronized.
I happen to watch the song after I heard it and I felt that the meaning was aptly picturized.. u may feel that I am blowing up small thing… hee hee.. But I feel its good.
‘Thanjaavuru mannu eduthu..’
The poet has taken enough care to identify which place would be suitable to say for making which organ and it ends excellently.. It depicts how much an artist would love to do the art in the superlative terms…’thandhaane thandhaane thandhaane kuyile’ linesla graama vaasam thookudhu..
Innum solla neriyaa irukku… these are ones on top of my head…Hope u liked them.
