Anniyan songs from a lyrical point of view.
This is one of the most contrasting Vairamuthu
album I have ever heard. 2 songs are top class, and remaining 3 are pathetic! Someone please tell me that Vairamuthu has penned the lyrics for only 2 songs. I will be happy :-)

Nice lyrics and excellent pronounciation by Shankar Mahadevan.
A song where only tamil is used. Vaeru mozhi kalappu illai
(Forget the crazy noises that HJ introduces in between)
oh sukumaari oh srungari
oh sukumaari yeh alangaari nee
oh sukumaari oh srungari eh kumaari nee
kumaari en kaadhal sikki mukki thikkirukudhu kumaari
en nenju vimmi vimmi pammi niRkudhu kumaari
en vaarthai kadal vatri vittadhe
naan thoatru poven endru anjiye
en thervai ellam othi vaikkiren
en manam oru malaradi
indha kaadhal enna verum baarama
idhu veru kaalam illa garbama
oh!! kaadhalai maRaithaal ganam thaangamal
en uyir sethu poagum illaya
kaadhalai solli illai endru maRuthaal
kaadhale sethu poagum illaya
Iyengar veetu azhaghe
It starts with the carnatic song 'Jagadho dhaara'
After that the lyrics are in chaste tamil. No english words used, and no slang tamil words as well. This is my pick.
Nalla tamizh paatu kaetta trupthi kedachudhu!
But somehow I felt, Iyengar aathu azhaghe would have been more apt :-)
Iyengar veetu azhaghe
un poala azhaghi piRakkavum illai
inimel piRandhaal adhu nam piLLai
un poal chamathu ulaginil illai
kadhalan chamathu kaadhalil thollai
aRiyaaamai dhaan ingu perinbam anbe
kaadhalin vaguppil maaNavan dhaan paNdidhane
I liked this part in 1st stanza. Good choice of simple words and it is rhyming also.
magarandha podigaLai eduthu
adhil manjaL thangam konjam ittu idithu
thirukannam engum suNNam poosi vannam seidhaano
oru koadi pookkaL konDu jodi pookkaL seidhaano
un udhadu serndhaal poopadyaum vaarthai
nammudhadu serndhaal poopadayum vaazhkai
aLLi serthen undhan uyirukkuL anumadhi oru muRai
Subtle hint of sensual stuff in last stanza. Vairamuthu at his poetic best!
vaan mazhayil nanaindhaal payirgaL uruvaagum
aaN mazhayil nanaindhaal uyirgaL uruvaaagum
thayangaadhe thodangattum azhagiya thavaRugaL
Rating of 4.5/5
I think after thinking so much for the above 2 songs vairamuthuvin 'vaarthai kadal vatRi vittadho?'
Sounds like a folk song. Starting varNaNai ellam nalla dhaan irukku.
But somehow, I didnt like the way the singers have sung it
andankaaakka konDai kaari
achuvella thonda kaari
ayyarettu pallu kaari
ayira meenu kaNNU kaari
pooval oru kodu poatta saiva kaatu vettakaari
And the quality deteriorates as the song progresses
Sounds like Item number lyrics
pachchai thanniyil otha paarvayil paththa vechaaNdi
un dhaavaNi thottendi
muththathaale vervai ellam suththam seyyendi
and stoops to rock bottom like this
hey chee po endryu eval seivaayo
aa oh hmm endre koova seyvaayo
inji morappaa iduppa paathu kasangi ponen di
eera udhattil soodu parappi isthiri poaden di
Remaining part of lyrics not worth mentioning!!!!
kaadhal yaanai varugira remo(or nemo??)
muththam thandha idathil muttum remo
ramp up remo ??????????????
algrebra ivan dhaegam
amoeba vaaga maarum
kong cobra ivan dhaegam
queen ellam thadumaarum
most of the song has some crap lyrics like this.
I will give it a rating of 1.5/5

Having english words in tamil songs is ok. Like 'Oh Maria Oh Maria' or 'April Mayile pasumaye illai'. In fact the lyrics of those songs were different and were throughly enjoyable. I think is the worst ever song written by vairamuthu
In this song, I think just for the tunes randomly some english words are used.
Rasgullah is good. Vatha kozhambu is good. But vatha kozhambu saadathukku rasgullah thottundu saapda mudiyuma?

And in second stanza, literally pathetic lyrics. Oru 1 1/2 yeard old kid thathu bithunu pesara madhiri irukku.
If the music had been good, they could have better had it as an instrumental.

I think the vairamuthu was watching national geographic, then CNBC then SunTV while penning the lyrics.

Thankfully HJ has composed the music in such a way, that it is heard to grasp the lyrics :-p
Overall rating. I will give 3.5/5 Just for the sukumaari and iyengar songs.
