The Other Side

While the music listening community goes ga-ga over Rahman's Guru (I do agree a few songs are good in it. But as usual it needs listening to a lot more to grow on you. Usual Rahman), Vidhyasagar, whom i have always rated as the most serious contender to God Illayaraja in terms of melody, has slipped in another of his lilting pieces into the movie "Sivapathigaram". Check out the song "Atrai Thingal" from Here. Madhu Balakrishnan does a good job of the hummings and the pallavi. This song BTW is set in the ragam Darbari Kanada. Sujatha another of his "melody songs" constants does not disappoint either. With minimal orchestration vidhyasagar manages to give a nice soothing feel to this song.
In all, a brilliant song which makes you listen to it again and again !
Here are the lyrics:

Atrai thingal vaan idam
Alli chendo neer idam
Sutrum thendral poovidam
Sokkum raagam yaazh idam
Kaanugindra kaathal ennidammmmmmmm
Naan thedugindra yaavum unnidammmmm
Atrai thingal vaan idam
Alli chendo neer idam
Sutrum thendral poovidam
Sokkum raagam yaazh idam
Kaanugindra kaathal ennidammmmmmmm
Naan thedugindra yaavum unnidammmmm

Adi thoda,
mudi thoda aasai perigida,
nerum pala vitha pari baashai
Podi pada,
podi pada naanam podi pada,
keatkkum manathinil uyir oosai
Mudi thoda,
mugam thoda mogam muzhugida,
verkkum muthuginil ethigaasam
Urugida,
urugida yekkum urugida,
koodum anal ithu kulir veesum
Kulunginean udal koosida
Keranginean viral meinthidaaaaaaaa
Mayanginean sugam sernthida
Thalumbinean enai nee thodaaaa,
paainthidaaa,
aainthidaaaa
Kaanugindra kaathal ennidammmmmmmm
Naan thedugindra yaavum unnidammmmm
Atrai thingal vaan idam
Alli chendo neer idam
Sutrum thendral poovidam
Sokkum raagam yaazh idam

Udal ethu,
udai ethu,
thedum nilai ithu
Kaathal kadan ithu adaiyaathu
Irav ethu,
pagal ethu,
theangum sugam ithu
Saagum varaiyilum mudiyaathu
Kanav ethu,
ninaiv ethu keatkkum pozhuth ithu
Kaama pasi vara adangaathu
valam ethu,
idam ethu vaattum kathai ithu
Theendum varaiyilum vilangaathu
Nadungalaam kulir vaadaiyil
Adangalaam oru vaadaiyillllll
Thayangalaam idai velayil
Urangalaam athi kaalaiyilllll,
koodalil,
oodalil
Kaanugindra kaathal ennidammmmmmmm
Naan thedugindra yaavum unnidammmmm

Pure tamil/sanskrit words and not tanglish words ;-)
