ENDHIRAN – A SCIENTIFIC LYRICAL EXPERIENCE!

Endhiran’s music has generated all kinds of reactions. Well, we are not discussing about the music here. Even the lyrics of Endhiran have aroused a lot of curiosity. Being the first full-fledged sci-fi film to come out of India, the lyrics of Endhiran have been written very unconventionally. There is a lot of ‘science’ in the lines and it is interesting to note how and why they have been used. Go ahead and experience the first ever ‘scientifically’ penned lines in a Tamil movie.
Endhiran
Kadhal Anukkal - Vairamuthu
Kadhal Anukkal
udambil etthanai
neutron electron – un
neelakannil mottham etthanai


These opening lines of the ‘Kadhal Anukkal’ song have already created amusement and interest amongst listeners. Perhaps, for the first time in many years, school students will get the opportunity of hearing the terms ‘neutron’ and ‘electron’ outside of their textbooks. Well, one must say that this is the kind of lyric that reinforces suspicions that scientists are nerds who cannot think about anything other than science, even during romance. The real significance of the lines, however, seems to be this….

‘The Kadhal anukkal (love atoms… a literal translation), an imaginary creation of Kaviperarasu Vairamuthu are as numerous as neutrons and electrons! Now, that is as scientific as love can get!

Well, this song does not get too scientific or robotic with its lyrics after the opening lines. Yes, there are a couple of references to Newton, but nothing much. Looking at the amount of scientific terms, names and analogies that have been used in other songs, this one is definitely on the lower side and suggests that it is one exclusively for Aishwarya Rai and Rajinikanth (the human form).
