Vellai Pura ondru…

To begin with – I am not a devadass roaming around with beard and bottle. I have hardly spoken to girls and I have no clue on what Love means!

Rajini starring song “Vellai pura ondru” from the movie pudhu kavithai is among my all time favorites. In fact one addiction that I am unable to control all these years is – “Illayaraja”. The song actually has two versions. A happy one and a sad one. This song has the best lyrics which could be felt deep inside the heart. Illayaraja’s composition and KJ’s voice has blended this song in the best manner possible.  And about Vairamuthu – I have no words. He is a genius. Each and every word used in this song is carefully chosen. The sad version has lines that explicitly shows the sadness and loneliness of Rajini.  One need not be a love failure person to understand the pain of the song. It just happens.. That’s Vairamuthu

Based in Kalyani raagam, this song catches my attention everytime I tune to the Maestro’s hits. One particular line that really goes deep in me is – “Illatha uravukku naan seiyum abhishekam”. And in the visuals, Rajini opens up a liquor bottle in this line.  Chance eh illa.. Thala “gethu“.!! Another line I admire in this song is – “thalaividhi ennum varthai indru kavalaikku marundhu aanadhe”. Going immediately – “Vedhangale vazhum varai, sogangale kadhal kathai”. Ada ada ada.. enna oru sindhanai.. Another line is in the second charanam – “neeyum naanum serndha podhu kodai kooda maargazhi, pirindha pinbhu poovum ennai suduvadhuenna kaadhali”.
