I recommend this beautiful movie to everyone. In this song, the uber-talented dancer has become an alcoholic and he sings and dances referring to the past he shares with the widow who is watching him. He says he blames no one for where life took him, possibly implying that he doesn’t care about anything any more. Thanks to my dad for correcting the meanings.
Thakita thadhimi thakita thadhimi thandhaanaa
Idhaya oliyin jadhiyil enadhu thillaanaa
Irudhayam adikkadi irandadhu enbaenaa
En kadhai ezhudhida marukkudhu en paenaa
Surudhiyum layamum onru saera
The heart’s sounds’ rhythm is my dance song.
Will I speak about my heart often dies?
My pen, it refuses to write my story
Melody and rhythm are coming together**
Ulaga vaazhkkai nadanam nee oppukkonda payanam
Adhu mudiyumboadhu thodangum nee thodangumboadhu mudiyum
Manidhan dhinamum alaiyil alaiyum kumizhi
Theriyum therindhum manamae kalangaadhiru nee
Thaalamingu thappavillai yaar meedhum thappu illai
Kaalgal poana paadhai endhan ellai
The worldly life is a drama, a journey you accepted to take
When it ends, it starts, when you start, it ends
Man is a bubble roaming daily in the waves
Even when that is known, mind, don’t get mixed up
No beat has been missed, the fault is no one’s
I go where ever my feet take me!
Pazhaiya raagam marandhu nee parandhadhenna piridhu
Iravudhoarum azhudhu en irandu kannum pazhudhu
Idhu oru ragasiya naadagamae
Alaigalil kulingidum oadam naanae
Baavamundu paavamillai vaazhkkaiyoadu koabamillai
Kaadhal ennaik kaadhalikka villai
You forgot the old tunes and flew away from me
All night, I cried and my two eyes were sore
This is a secret drama
I am the boat which rocks with the waves
There are feelings, not sins here, I have no anger with life
Just that love didn’t love me!
