Lyric Writer's Day Out

It looks like Director Perarasu has lot of competition in the lyrics department. Sample this from the movie Nee Venunda Chellam (Lyrics by Pa Vijay):

eppadiyum oruththankitta kazhuththai niittappoREn
ippavE nii EththukittA muzhusA ennai thAREn

eppadiyum oruththikku nA purushanAgappoREn
unnudaiya purushanAnA thappEyillai vaaREn

எப்படியும் ஒருத்தன்கிட்ட கழுத்தை நீட்டப்பொறேன்
இப்பவே நீ ஏத்துகிட்டா முழுசா என்னை தாறேன்

எப்படியும் ஒருத்திக்கு நா புருஷனாகப்பொறேன்
உன்னுடைய புருஷனானா தப்பேயில்லை வாறேன்

I thought Pa Vijay can do much better than this. Pa Vijay would have probably thought that the viewers would be more keen on watching Namitha than following the lyrics :-)

If you are a Perarasu fan and are missing him badly, do listen to his latest offering from the movie Vallavan. It has lot of thought-provoking lyrics:

yammAdi aaththAdi unnai enakku thariyaadi?

யம்மாடி ஆத்தாடி உன்னை எனக்கு தரியாடி?


  • Kaps

    These guys write these lyrics as what is currently sellable in a youthful markets..
    This is a vicious circle. With most of the present pop albums/movie song featuring racy videos with sleazy lyrics . Our youngster are being influenced at subconscious level.
    There is an interesting research along the same lines and results are not good

  • Was'nt it P.Vijay that came up with that 'Iritinl nizhal kooda, kooda varadhu' in Pudhupetai..

  • @Ganesh,
    fully agree with u.

    i know that we can't do much about it

    thanks or the sympathies

    I thought Na Muthukumar was the lyricist for Pudhupettai.

  • @Ganesh, thats one of my fav. lines. Was thrilled to see someone quoting it.:-)
    @Kaps, the picturisation is bad too. guess you are right about the Namitha factor. Nothing beats "X machi Y machi FM Mirchi..." (gajini right?)

  • @Deepa,
    The picturisation sucks. I hate Jerry Ramesh as well.

  • Tamil Cinema going through an all-time low. Thanks to people like Perarasu.

    People like him should be arrested on some anti-social grounds and be subjected to 10-15 years RI.

    Thats the only way you clean the sewage called 'Tamil Cinema'.

    See what Tamil cinema has spiralled down to. From greats like KB, Mani, Mahendran, Balu M, to these guys nowadays Perarasu, Singam Puli, Seeman.

    Horrible. Disappointing and Gut Wrenching

  • Guys,

    The movie Kodambakkam has the worst lyrics.

    "Adi Nee Oru Sooperu figuru,
    Unna eppadithan pethalo motheru..."

    I think there should be statewide agitation for things like this. I dont mind infringing on creative freedom this one time.

  • Very true! Pretty bad lyrics And only these kind of movies run today! But there are some good songs as well! Like for instance the song Poo Poovai from bala - it has some good lyrics that really emphasize the morale and values of a family!
    "ஒரே ஒரே மின்விசிறி அதன் அடியில் தூங்கி கிடப்போம்.......

    பூமியில் சொர்க்கம் உள்ளதென்று சொன்னால் - வேறெங்குமில்லை அது எங்கள் இல்லமே!"

  • appan pannina thappula
    pethu iruke vethalai..

    Something like these lines..never paid attention to the lyrics but the tune was catchy :-)

    By Blogger Adaengappa !!, at 1:11 PM  

  • @definitely maybe,
    those songs are really disgusting

    @Indian Angel,
    Thanks for dropping by. i'll listen to the songs in the movie Bala

    Don't get me started on Vijay and Perarasu lyrics.

  • Maybe like Porn Movies and Porn Videos, a separate market segment called "Porn Lyrics/songs" should be created for these "X" rated Lyricists... that could ensure that such songs are "targeted" towards specific audiences. It is extremely discomforting to hear such lyrics/songs in a family environment.

    By Anonymous ramki830, at 10:58 PM  

  • @definitely maybe, I fell off the chair laughing after reading the lyrics you quoted. What nonsense!

    By Blogger Deepa, at 10:39 PM  

  • @Ramki,
    I don't think Porn lyrics will be commercial value (as much as porn movies / videos). I feel that Indian censors are not doing much for vulgar film lyrics.

    By Blogger Kaps, at 11:17 AM  

  • yes as much as there are many dirty-lyriced songs, there are some very good songs too.for eg) paartha naal mudhala from Vetaiyaadu vilayaadu.
    and also abt directors, we have some really great directors today. a very good example is my fav one, GOWTHAM MENON, the genius, the maker of kaaka kaaka, VV.
