You who is smiling so much
What sadness is it that you are hiding?
You who is smiling so much
This nameless pain,
Why doesn’t it stop?
What has finished,
Why doesn’t it pass?
Unfortunately, hope came and shook me up
Why would I blame any one else?

Deivam thandha veedu veedhiyirukku Indha oorenna sondha veedenna njaana pennae Vaazhvin porulenna nee vandha kadhai enna I … [Read more…]

Later on, because the child objects to her father’s remarriage, they are forced to stop seeing … [Read more…]
This is a melodious potential Ohrwurm which describes how he is falling in love. As it seems to be typical of the time period in which this movie was made, the choreography is weird, their expressions seem more contemplative or sad than joyful and the costume design is odd but the song sounds good.
