Why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di?

If you have not listened to the Tamil song “வொய் திஸ் கொலவெறி டி” (Transliteration: “Why This Kolaveri Di”) meaning “Why this murderous rage, lass?” then you must be an extra-terrestrial.

Anirudh Ravichander

This song was featured in the Tamil film titled “3″, that was released on March 30, 2012. Music director Anirudh Ravichander composed the music in just 10 minutes and young actor Dhanush who sang this song wrote the lyrics, in about 20 minutes by fiddling and twiddling with Tanglish words.

The musical instruments used in this song are western saxophone, acoustic guitar, electronic keyboards, synthesizers, indigenous south Indian instruments such as nadaswaram, urumee, thavil, and north Indian shehnai. The singing is in the style of Tamil folk songs.

The song was officially released on 16 November 2011. It became viral instantly on social networking sites. The song was well received not only by Tamils but also by others who do not know Tamil. Why? Because of the catchy tune and lyrics containing Tanglish words.

The song “Kolaveri Di” became an internet phenomenon. Within a week after the official release of the video, it received more than 3.5 million views on YouTube, and more than 1 million shares on Facebook. Up to 30 November 2011 it had more than 10.5 million views on YouTube. By the end of 2011, the number of YouTube views crossed 30 million.

The song’s universal theme of failure in love combined with unique yet nonsensical lyrics and captivating music has spawned hundreds of imitations and political parodies.

Many lines in this song, sung by the hero in an inebriated state after having been ditched by the heroine, are just utter nonsense..

Lyrics:

A Boost Anthem for Sachin by ‘Kolaveri’ Dhanush


.

Myself . By T.V. Antony Raj

.

Boost is India’s leading malt-based health food drink having a chocolate flavour. Sachin Tendulkar became the brand ambassador for Boost with his debut in 1989 at the age of seventeen.

Anirudh Ravichander and Dhanush

The 28-year-old actor Dhanush and music director Anirudh Ravichander riding high on the success of their Tanglish song “Why this kolaveri di?” was approached by Boost to create an anthem to pay tribute to Sachin’s 23 years of stamina.

“It’s a great honour to sing for a legend like Sachin Tendulkar. I am happy that I have been chosen to do this. He is the pride of our nation. When I was offered to do the song I didn’t think twice and just knew that I had to do it. I have really worked hard on the song and I hope people enjoy it,” Dhanush said.

When asked whether he had met Sachin, the actor said, “No I haven’t met Sachin … I don’t think he knows me or that I am singing a song for him but I hope he likes the song.”

Here is the video uploaded by BoostEnergyIndia on Feb 7, 2012.

And here is the lyrics of the song in Tanglish.
