'Why This Kolaveri Di' song’s cool lingo decoded
It doesn’t happen every day that a Tamil song becomes a rage and the entire nation sways to the common beat. Why This Kolaveri Di is a superhit track with over eight million views on youtube in just 10 days. Some give credit to the simple and immensely catchy tune by music composer Anirudh Ravichander. Others have credited Dhanush for his tipsy rendering. But almost everyone is intrigued by the song’s lyrics. Here we decode them for you.

Tamil star Dhanush who has given words to the song never expected that it will be appreciated so much by the masses. He sings it’s a ‘flop’ song, however, ironically, it isn’t. We tried to decode what’s the meaning behind the bizarre words of the track, like ‘soup’, ‘holy cow’.

As the song is in Tanglish, those who couldn’t understand the Tamil words easily followed the English lines, but one of the most asked question after the song became a hit was, “What is the meaning of Kolaveri Di”?

What’s more funny was when we came across some people, with no knowledge of Tamil, who thought that it’s about sister as in Hindi ‘di’ stands for elder sister. Well, Kolaveri di as Dhanush penned it is for the killer rage, the murderous rage. “Why do you have this murderous rage against me?” is the actual meaning of the main chorus of the song, and 'di' is a way to call a girl.

And “soup” is a kind of informal Tamil word used for the boys who are losers in love, while “holy cow” has also colloquial connotation. Interestingly the line “you showed me bouv-u” means rejection -- when a girl rejects a boy and shows the door. “Sariyaa Vaasi” in proper Tamil, means “play the music properly”.

This kind of words are commonly used by Tamil youth. In fact, Dhanush, quite self effacingly, said that the song is “absolute nonsense”.

But do we really care? ‘Nonsense’ does make sense when millions lap it up.

Now youtube also has a video showing Japanese girls dancing to the tune of Why This Kolaveri Di. Don’t miss this one:
