These are the dark ages as far as the Tamil film industry.
If there’s been a Renaissance in Indian arts and culture, it has not touched Tamil shores yet.
The other day we committed the deadly sin of buying the Evan di Unna Pethan track from the upcoming movie Vaanam (Simbhu) on iTunes.
Keeping in line with the current rage of remaking movies, Vaanam is a rehash of the 2010 Telugu film Vedam.
Misery, Unending Misery
Folks, a lot of ugly sights and discordant sounds have fallen on these fading eyes and these old ears but few have caused us as much agony, so much grief as Evan Di Unna Pethan.
The ne plus ultra of trash, this excreta of a song and its diarrhea of lyrics has few parallels even in a Tamil movie industry lorded over by thieves and halfwits making films for imbeciles and crackpots.
We listened to Evan di Unna Pethan repeatedly to see if we could salvage some element of sanity from it.
Hard as we tried, we came a cropper.
From the babyish first line to the sophomoric middle to the depressing end, it’s all one dystopian nightmare.
Our biggest issue was to discern which was worse – the music or the lyrics. A tough one, an impossibly odious task this business of finding the lesser evil!
Of course, something so obscene, so bereft of any redeeming features would perforce find favor with the Tamil audience.
So, it’s hardly with any surprise we note that the song is resonating well with its intended audience.
These stupid Tamils deserve the crappy music, the trashy movies and the crooked leaders thrown at them with monotonous regularity.
