So it has been a while since I heard this song when I heard this song on the radio, “why this kolaveri?” There are those that love the song and those that abhor it, they must be a minority, considering the song still has a large following and is one of the few Indian songs that has had an international popularity, after Daler Mehndi’s Tunuk Tunuk Tun. As for me I loved it! I don’t think it was a creatively challenged song, and I do believe the purpose of the song was more than to show off Dhanush’s perfect jawline and cute smile.
If you have been looking for the meaning of the song, here it is. At least this is what I understand. The song is written in Tamglish, Tamil English as it has a mix of both the languages. I don’t think it is trying to make fun of either of the languages as much as it seems they are having fun with it.
This particular song is part of the genre called nonsense lyrics. No seriously, but this is not exactly nonsense (except perhaps white background nightu nightu), the song is about a guy whose girlfriend is fuming, raging, mad and the guy is now in a soup. It looks to me like a drunken reverie about this guy, hint is the line, “kaiyala glass, glass la scotch,” meaning a glass of scotch in my hand.
Actually you know what I just want to have fun listening to the song, and not try to analyse it. What is the point of the aaaas in the alaaps of classical songs or the nasal singing of the opera singer other than people like it. If you think about it aliens might find the whole idea of singing and dancing ridiculous.
Am I giving too much thought to something I said I would just enjoy, not analyse? I think I am, so I will just shut up and enjoy the song and let you do so…:))
