The Best of “Why This Kolaveri Di” – the wold famous viral song!

ravoof - why this kolaveri?Why This Kolaveri Di – The Viral song of the year according to many, has transcended continents, languages, people, cultures… everything! This phenomenon started in November 2011 when the song was aired in YouTube. The song by Dhanush, a brilliant upcoming actor from Chennai, South India, was sung in Tanglish (a mix of Tamil and English).

The reason behind this song spreading to such a wide audience in a matter of just a few weeks is still something one cannot come to terms with. The simple music by debutant music director Anirudh is very catchy and clean. Dhanush has also sung this song well and the lyrics are very simple too. I guess it shows that simplicity is what people what these days when everything under the sun seems complicated and confusing. This song has been composed for the Tamil movie ‘3’, directed by Aishwarya, daughter of famous Tamil Superstar Rajnikanth a.k.a. Rajini, and wife of Dhanush.

Most of you wonder what ‘Kolaveri’ means. It is actually a tamil slang for ‘murderous rage’. It is usually used to put off a cranky person in a group. This song depicts the anguish of a person who has just tasted rejection from the hands of a girl whom he liked.

With over 27.5 million views and counting, 190,128 likes, 94,100 comments and number 15 on the YouTube charts from the time it was posted on Nov 16, 2011, this is certainly one of the best examples of viral media at its best!

From the time it has come out, it seems to be on everyone’s lips. Be it any nationality, they either know or have heard about it. This in turn brought about new varieties of the song. Kid version, Malayalam, English, Hindi, Arabic, chipmunk, carnatic, female, Gujarati, etc. There are also funny versions. There are parody’s and dances. I guess this this whole thing can also be termed as another “Kolaveri”.

The original – Tanglish (Tamil English) Version

This is the original song with music composer Anirudh, Dhanush, Shruti Hassan, Aishwarya and Sound Engineer Sivakumar.

The Neevan Nigam (Kid) Version

The cutest version. Neevan is the son of famous Indian playback singer Sonu Nigam. A real treat to watch. I just loved instantly. You will too.

The Malayalam Version – Enthini Kolachadhi Di

Surprisingly this song was good! I never expected it to be. Brilliantly sung by Ajay Sathyan and directed by Adeeb Peedikayil. Well done guys!

The Arabic Version – Why This Khalli Walli خلي ولي

Hahaha. Being expats in Dubai, we know the meaning and feeling of being a Khalli Walli! Working without visa in this country is also termed as Khalli Walli. Khalli Walli basically also means ‘let it go’ or ‘whatever’. Nice song.
