I know Valentines day is over, but I could not have published this one on that day, believe me 😉
There is a Tamil Song from the movie Dheena – Sollamal Thottu Chellum Thendral…. (Cast – Ajith Kumar and Laila; Lyrics – Vijay Sagar; Music – Yuvan Shankar Raja; Singer – Hariharan). I think this song can be dedicated to the spirit of Valentines day. Want proof? I have given the translation of the important (selected) part of the lyrics in English, along with the Tamil lines, below. Read those gem of lines yourself!
“Indha kadhalinal, kaatril parakkum kaagidham aanenn…”
I have become like a paper, flying in air because of Love…
“Kadhalin Avasthai Edhirikkum Vendam…. Naragam Sugamallava…”
I do not wish the pain of Love even to my enemy; Hell is more comfortable…
“Neruppai Vizhungi vitten… Ooo Amilam Arundhi vitten…”
I (feel like) have swallowed the fire… drunk the poison…
“Noyai nenjil ni nuzandhai, marundhai yenadi thara marutthai?”
You came in to my heart like an ailment; but you forgot to give me the medicine…
“Pengalin ullam padu kuzhi yenben… Vizhundhu yezhundhavan yaar… Aazham alandhavan yaar… karayai kadandhavan yaar…”
The heart of women is like a huge pit… Who has ever got out after falling in?… Who has ever measured the depth… Who has crossed the shore?….
“Kadhal Irrukkum bayatthinil than, kadavul bhoomikku varuvadhillai… Meeri avan, bhoomi vandhal, dhadiyudan than alaivar veedhiyile…”
Its due to the fear of Love, that God doesn’t come to earth… If he comes in spite of that, he would have to roam around the streets with a beard!….
So, looks like Ajith Kumar has had a glimpse of the truth, in spite of Laila coming in between so many times in the screen… 😛
PS: None of the views mentioned here are my own, I have just translated the song from Tamil to English… 😀
