Today we are going to tell you something very different, something we haven’t done before. If you are on facebook, Twitter or you are a consistent Visitor to Youtube and you are an Indian with as much as remote interest in music by now you would have heard the song which goes by the name Kolaveri Di from the upcoming Tamil movie 3, due to be released in 2012, composed by Anirudh Ravichander, which has already become a national hit. The song is penned and sung by popular Tamil movie star Dhanush. A promo of this song was released on YouTube on 16th November 2011, and it instantly became viral on social networking sites for its quirky “Tanglish” (Tamil–English) lyrics. Soon, the song became the most searched video on YouTube.
Here’s the video:
pa pa paan pa pa paan pa pa paa pa pa paan
The feel of the song is good but the only thing that still most you out there don’t understand is the meaning of the lyrics.
So here we are to explain you the same
Why this Kolaveri Di?: Why do you have this Kolaveri, Girl? (Represents the guy’s feeling after his girlfriend ditched him).
Kolaveri: Urge to Kill/Torment/Hurt (meaning varies on situation) someone.
Soup Song: A song about failing in love.
Soup Boys: Men who have failed in love.
Sariyaa Vaasi: Play the music properly.
Showed me Bouv-u: Rejected me (When you go near a dog, it barks ‘Bow’ which means, go away don’t come near me. Similarly when you go after a girl and she shoos you away, it is called showing ‘Bow-u’. In a funny way.)
Da or Mama: Tamil variant of “Dude” or “Bro”.
Di: Tamil variant of “Girl” or “Babe”.
