[Raavavan] Naan varuven…
Very interesting song! Rahman’s music and rendition is interesting. Vairamuthu’s lyrics is fantastic!
Singers: A. R. Rahman, Jali Fily Cissokho
Music director: A. R. Rahman
Song sequence: (1)-(2)-(3)-(4)-(2)-(1)-(1)-(4)=(1)-(4)=1
(1)நான் வருவேன் மீண்டும் வருவேன் உன்னை நான் தொடர்வேன் உயிரால் தொடுவேன்
unnai naan thodarven
I will come
I will resurrect and come back again.
I will continue to follow you (continue to be with you)
I will touch you with my soul (make you feel me at heart)
(2)ஒரு பிள்ளை எழுதும் கிறுக்கல் தான் வாழ்க்கையோ அதில் அர்த்தம் தேடி அலைவதே வேட்கைய (3)அர்த்தம் புரியும் போது வாழ்வு மாறுது வாழ்வு கழியும் போது அர்த்தம் மாறுது
oru pillai ezhuthum kirukal dan vaazhkaiyo
athil artham thedi alaivathe vetkaiya
artham puriyum poothu vazhuvu maaruthu
vaazhvu maarum pothu artham maaruthu
Is life like the scribble of a child ?(totally random and not thought of)
is it our quest to try to find the meaning in it (the scribble)?
when we find the meaning, the life changes,
When life changes, the meaning changes thereafter ( implying it is impossible to find the meaning of life)
(4)ஒரு கனவு காற்றில் மிதக்குதோ அது மிதந்து கொண்டு சிரிக்குதோ
oru kanavu kaatril midhakutho
athu mithandhu konde sirikutho
Is a dream (our imagination of life) floating in the air?
Is it laughing at us as it floats? (looking at our ignorance)
rehman imho sounds often more like a poor man’s ilayaraja. dsnt succeed in creating the magic that isaignani is ALWAYS capable of!
Then you should have just ignored him. Just the fact that you had to browse to his song’s lyric website and leave a distasteful comment on a legend and genius of music says a lot about your insecurities than anything else. I’m sure he wouldn’t care a thought to people like you. Wallow in your misery brother. And please do enjoy ilayaraja’s music
Well. I guess you are right to an extent, although both are legends in their own right :). I think with this song, it is a new attempt and experiment to combine non-traditional and alternate sounds.
arr is the type who would choose to experiment ALL THE TIME. A reason behind this streak to inform an artist’s work is in my humble opinion a lack of understanding of what the classical, the established truly is! obviously, no offence intended. Just that I am not very fond of his music.
Aside from this, you might like this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Drc4FXhaNQ (on Ilayaraja)
Then personal concerns if you had any brains you’d just ignore him. The fact that you had to browse to a rahman lyric website and leave a distasteful comment about a legend and genius of music shows more about your insecurities than anything else. I know he wouldn’t care a thought for people like you. Please enjoy ilayaraja’s music.
