I have been repeatedly listening to "Poongatrilae" from Uyire (Ae Ajnabi/Dil Se) of late. And, this doesnt bore me even if I listen to it 10 times a day!!!

The song startes of with a rustic feel to it through the simple beats, and then when Swarnalatha starts of with "Kannil oru vali irundhaal" it takes you in to that mood of sorrow and pain. That heavy, base voice of Unni Menon fits the song aptly (though, I feel Udit's rendition of Ae Ajnabi is better!)

ARR excels with the music for the song, but Vairamuthu is not far behind with the lyrics, thus making it a perfect song. This is one of my favourites of Vairamuthu. The fact that the song is played on the radio by Shah Rukh, is brought out in many places in the lyrics, without losing the essence of the song.
Kaattrin alaivarisai kaetkkindradhaa ?
Kaetkkum paattil oru uyir vizhum kanneer vazhigindradhaa ?
Nenju nanaigindradhaa ?
Idhayam karugum oru vaasam varugindradhaa ?

Kaattril kanneerai yaettri
Kavidhai sendhaenai oottri
Kannae un vaasal saerthaen
Oyum jeevan odum munnae ododi vaa ...
Picture this... The hero works in the radio station. He has no clue about the whereabouts of his love. The only way he can reach out to her is through the air-waves. He transmits his feelings to her, by airing this song on the radio... and the song's lyrics capture not just the mood, but also the medium though which he reaches her!!! - "I add my tears to the air, with some sweet poetry, and deliver to your house!"
Just brilliant! What more could one ask for! Vairamuthu is Vairamuthu!

One of my fav songs - for the music, lyrics and the rendition!!!

    And the version in Hindi is equally beautiful.

    Why don't u put up those verses in hindi too??

  1. Vani Viswanathan

    amazing song... the lyrics of the thaiyya thaiyya song (the second one!) is equally good in hindi and tamil too! vairamuthu can sure do a good job for mani ratnam's movies at least!

    I don't know but I always thought the Hindi version was better. Though not my fav from Dil Se/ Uyire, I love this one because of the loveliness and the longing. This is one of my mood songs. Immerse myself in it when in the right mood.

    I have the first generation iphone and I want to sell it. I only have the iphone itself. However there are some small cracks in the screen, but it works PERFECTLY. How much do you think I should sell it for? Someone offered me $50, is that too low?
