|Why This Kolaveri Di?|
This Tamil-English song, supported by excellent music and different lyrics, has taken the web by storm. It is trending on YouTube. It was trending on Twitter. This song was seen as a strong competition and threat to Lady Gaga. Most importantly, it has bought the South Indian film industry into limelight and has been widely appreciated by folks across India.
This is a song about failed love. However, this song has also reflected the mood of the moment across the world.
The entire world is in a murderous rage. (Well, Kolaveri means Murderous Rage).
In a span of less than 4 days, a single man has slapped two high profile politicians. And like I heard on the news hour tonight, they have been slapped a million times with the videos being replayed continuously on TV.
Next times the politicians will step out, they will be accompanied by bodyguards and a MP3 player playing - Why this Kolaveri?
|Dhanush Shruti Hassan Why This Kolaveri Di?|
The Libyans are in a murderous rage. They have bought down the Gaddafi regime, killed Muammar Gaddafi himself and captured his son Saif. The Egyptians removed their ex President Hosni Mubarak from power, and are now gunning against the army to install a civilian government.
The only thing that the military rulers can say - flummoxed by the attitude of the civilians - Why this Kolaveri?

It would be most worthwhile to note that this song is from the debut movie of music composer Anirudh Ravichander, all of 21 years. I just hope and pray that he gives excellent music in the coming years. As for Aishwarya Rajnikanth, Dhanush's better half, this is her directorial debut. The film "3" stars Dhanush himself and Shruti Hassan, and is all set to become a mega hit.
