Vaigaasi Nilave ❤️

Back in 2007, when Sun Music / Suryan FM & Radio Mirchi blasted ‘June Ponaal July Kaatre..’ & ‘Unnale Unnale..’ I’m glad ‘Vaigaasi Nilave..’ pleased my ears more than the other songs from this film. I remember the high school & college girls having a crush on Vinay to the maxxx & boys were kraaazy about Sadha’s character during the release of this film.

So, how did I come across this song?!? Before downloads, streaming & after CDs, there was a phase called “MP3”. Costed 30 bucks, had 23-25 film songs in 128kbps [Piracy, But ariyaadha vayasu. BTW later I purchased the original physical copy of this one]. It was a bluish sunday evening & on a random shuffle I landed on this song. The mellifluous prelude is the main reason I passed 25 seconds in this song & when Haricharan’s rendition started, I concentrated more on lyrics, Something told me that this is magical. Next day I rushed to school soon, just to discuss the song with my back-bencher gang. I was in my 11th standard then (I’m a 1st bencher. No, don’t judge. I wasn’t a padipps. Just height issues).

I believe that a perfect blend of lyrics, tune & singing makes a song spell-bounding. This is one such song, where the tune & the singing adds more charm to it but, BUT.. I find the lyrics of this one, a step ahead of the fabulous tune and amazing rendition by Haricharan & Madhushree. According to me, this is one of the most underrated songs by Harris Jayaraj ever. It didn’t receive the love & due recognition which it deserved.

Loved the way Vaali conceived the lines

"வைகாசி நிலவே வைகாசி நிலவே
மைபூசி வைத்திருக்கும் கண்ணில்
நீ பொய்பூசி வைத்திருப்பதென்ன!?!"

To quote my favorite lines in this song,

"இதோ எனக்காக விரிந்தது இதழ்
எடுக்கவா தேனே?"


"காலம் நேரம் பார்த்துக்கொண்டா
காற்றும் பூவும் காதல் செய்யும்?"

Thank you, Harris! Thanks for this song.

Cya! I really hope this post made you revisit ‘Vaigaasi Nilave’. See you soon! 🙂 Please write to me if you have any memories associated with this song. Would be really glad to read’em! 🙂

Yours truly, Pattukkaaran 🙂 Bubye!
