    On "en mEl vizhundha mazhai thuLiye" (Ramki)

    ‘en mEl vizhundha mazhaithuLiye" - A Lyrical Analysis

    First love. The situation is beaten to death by our lyricists. Numerous songs have been written, sung and forgotten. But there are few that will ever live in our memories. ‘en mel vizhundha mazhaithuLiye’ is one such song. This soft melodious romantic duet features excellent lines Vairamuthu has ever written in his carrier.
    The very first line captures our attention

    ‘en mel vizhundha mazhaithuLiye ithanai naaLai engirundhaai’

    I’m sure all of us, at one point of time in our life, would have wondered where,how and when an affection, love sprouted out. It need not have to be romantic love, it could very well be a friendship that blossomed suddenly or talent you thought you never had and there is no poetically better way to express them.

    The poet continues

    Indru ezhudhiya en kaviye ithanai naaLai engirundhaai
    Ennai ezhuppiya poongaatre ithanai naaLai engirundhaai
    Ennai mayakkiya mellisaiye ithanai naaLai engirundhaai

    The proclamation progresses with each line. But then apt comes the reply

    Udambil uraigindra oaruyir pol unakkuLthaane naan irundhen

    Don’t look around you fool. Look within yourself, it’s always been within you, inside you. Its only today you realized its presence.

    The lines are equally philosophical as it is romantic
    The charanam explains this concept in detail

    Mannai thirandhaal neer irukkum
    En manadhai thirandhaal nee iruppai
    Oliyai thirandhaal isai irukkum
    En uyirai thirandhaal nee iruppai

    ‘olikuL isai pol ennuL nee’ - Never heard or read this uvamai before. Makes one to ask

    ‘indru ezhudhiye Vairamuthe ithanai naaLai engirundheer’?

    Vaanam thriandhaal mazhai irukkum
    En vayadhai thriandhaal nee iruppai

    You will buried in the pages of my I correct that . You will be my history

    Iravai thirandhaal pagal irukkum
    En imaiyai thirandhaal nee iruppai

    Ilaiyum malarum urasugaiyil
    Enne baasahi pesidumo

    Alaiyum karaiyum urasugaiyil
    Enne baashai pesidumo

    Mannum vinnum urasugaiyil
    Enne baashai pesidumo

    Paarvai irandum pesikondaal
    Baashai oomaiyaividumo

    Last few remaining lines are not as outstanding but they aren’t bad either.

    Listen to 'en mEl vizhuntha'.

    When I first listened to the song I felt like asking

    emmai mayakkiye rahmane ithanai naaLai engirundhaai

    After listening to few of ARR’s latest albums I feel like asking
    emmai mayakkiye rahmane enge tholaindhu poivittai

    Nice Article Ramki.. This was one of my favourite songs lyrics wise as well as music wise... Surprisingly the other songs in this movie had very poor lyrics except for certain lines in Maargazhi poove and Minnale.. Again there's a mixture of good lines inbetween some absurd imaginations in these songs..
