These are the dark ages as far as the Tamil film industry.
Forget Thirutu Nais like Venkat Prabhu, even veterans like Kamal Haasan have stooped to stealing. When they’re not stealing, these Kollywood rascals are churning out unendurable trash like Sura.
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.
Ya everyone who listened it for the first time got retched.(including me). BUT it has become a cult now in TN with repeated hearing and sharing on social networks… I would say u shld listen to this song for fun/time pass than reviewing it seriously :)..Its not worth reviewing and all! simbhu and yuvan themselves would be offended doing that exercise..

There are less painful ways to hurt ourselves! 🙁
SOngs is for timepassing. That itself you dont understand. you are what to comment on yuvans music. are you some other music director who has given many many block buster hits??we have a lots of fans in tamilnadu for yuvan so dont talk rubbish about yuvan for any money that you get paid. Nobody ever compelled you to buy this, you yourself buy and then cry if the music is not good whom can answerr you? get some music according to what taste you liking why insult others work?? this is not good at all on part of you…
1. You write: we have a lots of fans in tamilnadu for yuvan
Bet you have lot of fans for Namitha too in Tamil Nadu.
Bet you have lot of fans for Karunanidhi too in Tamil Nadu.
Bet you have a lot of fans for the Cooum too (no wonder it’s not been cleaned for several decades).
Bet you have lot of fans for all kinds of crap in Tamil Nadu.

Someone hurt your backside today? 😉
3. You write: this is not good at all on part of you…
Hmmmm, appadiya (is that so?)
Kumaraguru, neenga thamizhaye thitti irukalame? 😉
Mr Boopalan, i was born and brought up in rural tamilnadu (andhra border) so i could not get quality education like other people i just know telugu and tamil fluently. whatever im writing is what i learnt out of my own interest. So kindly excuse iof my english is bad. Im still learning day by day hope oneday ill able to write correctly without mistakes
Don’t you worry, sweetie! Your English is refreshing as it is.
These Boopalans, Gopalans and Komalans act as if they were born in London, wear only Savile Row suits (even in bed), watch the Derby every Saturday and drink High Tea every day! They are probably regretting the departure of the British even now.
In the spirit of good cheer, we dedicate our next swill of Pale Moon to you, Honey!
SI, It is alright this time you forgot to add that I’m the heir-apparent, next in line to the throne. 😉
Kumaraguru, Don’t fall for the words of mischievous SI. Relying on him / her / it proved to be dangerous in the past for many 😉
By the way, Kumaraguru, i did not intend to be hurtful or offensive. I am from a village you-wont-know-for-sure (and a.k.a place-SI-does-not-give-a-f**k-for). Medium of education was Tamil. You’re way better than me, since you’re fluent in two languages, while I assume I’m fluent only in Tamil. 🙂
Next in line?
Hell! We’re first in line.
Ask Anushka Shetty, Ask Vimala Raman, Ask Jennifer Lawrence, Ask Tabu, Ask Ingrid Bergman…. 😉
Have you schmucks Firefoxed 4 Yet?
You ought to have confused between ‘thong’ and ‘throne’. While you’re first in line to get your hands on the former, I talked about the latter 😉
@Kumaraguru “so dont talk rubbish about yuvan ” and who are you to say that?
This YUVAN has copied AKONs BEAUTIFUL
Listen for yourself and decide! Such a copycat yuvan will never learn!
We listened to song from above link once with cricket in background.
Unsure, if it’s a copy or can we give Yuvan the benefit of doubt.
Folks, what’s the Makkal theerpu (people’s verdict)?
Yuvan has not copied Akon’s song, He has infact had copied ‘Pitbull feat Ne yo’ find out for yourself from this
Please give your comments after you watch this.
dinesh,can you say who is your favourite music director
I am waiting for the movie to getting released soon. SImbhu as usual is a superb star who can sizzle in the cinema theatre when ever he is coming. Simbhu is next biggest actor you watch that film, he’ll do the roles better than the original and im sure it will be block buster for 200 days. further to add, beautiful anushka is also there simbu and anushka form a better pair than that small-brinjal surya who putted heels to acting with anushka.. So tamilnadu fans, get ready for another super hit from simbu the superstar after super film VTV
1. Yeah, that ‘small-brinjal surya’ always putted (sic) heels to all Tamil movies.
Small-brinjal surya’s father Sivakumar also putted (sic) heels with this stupid dance in Vellikizhamai Viratham
Better small-brinjal surya ‘putted’ all his time to those stupid Kapi ads.
2. You write: SImbhu as usual is a superb star who can sizzle in the cinema theatre when ever he is coming
We feel Your Psychiatrist’s pain.
3. You write: im sure it will be block buster for 200 days
Hey, this is Tamil Nadu.
If Karunanidhi can be a superstar for 50+ years, any shit can be a superstar!
If small-brinjal [If tamils did not understand what was intended to be conveyed by this phrase – it is a sheer translation attempt of tamil usage – ‘kulla katharikaai’] surya ‘putted’ heels, the tiny-brinjal Simbhu should have ‘putted’ on some ‘stool’ !! 😉
Ha ha ha.
did you watch singampuli its a nice comedy cum masala movie. It has jiiva and santhanam has hero the comedy is very very good. See that beautiful movie and review that also. the songs are bad but the film is full of good comedy and action that you will definite;ly enjoy and the money u spend is real worth.
Thank you for the valuable suggestion.
We like all Tamil ‘film is full of good comedy and action.’
DUDE pls stop from even thinkin of watching shit like singam puli…Kumarguru has clearly barged in to execute a brutal attack on u 🙂 :)…Its clearly a bait from kumarguru…brace yourself..
Sweetie, liquor has taken a big toll on our brain. But, have no fear, there’s still some left of this once-huge mass. We ain’t watching no Singam Puli nor Asingam Puli. 😉
the heroines of the movie are not that good. playboy jiivas heroine was little ok and goodlooking. they should have selected anushka who is very beautifully looking like we sawed in singam cinema. she is always sizzling watch more anushka movies and she is the best and will win many awards for talented roles that she will be doing in future.
Looking at your comments, it seems like you’re the type of person who’d go to the extent of building a temple for Anushka aka Sweety Shetty 😉
no i was just her fan. she acts well than other heroines like trisha, sreya who doesnt give a single expression . already kushbu temple was built that itself is a big mistake so no more temples. .
@Kumaraguru / @trishna147,
SI just loves Anushka & reaches orgasm at the mere sight of name Anushka 😉
If all any temple would be built for her, it is most likely that SI demands chief-priest position in it.
SI is already Head Priest in the church of Jennifer Lawrence. 😉
i agree that Anushka is better than these non-actresses like Shriya, Trisha, etc. I heard these people also built a temple for Namitha. Enna Kodume Sir ithu…
hahaha i agree 🙂
btw SI, which contemporary Indian actresses do you even like nowadays?
You write: btw SI, which contemporary Indian actresses do you even like nowadays?
Indian actress? Can’t think of any.
Foreign, a couple.
Also, if by like you mean ‘drool,’ then we’d say only Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone and Gong Li (Memoirs of a Geisha)) find favor with us
see if that song is very bad then why would they do thios
evandi unna pethan pethan….its a next superhit from yuvan sure.shot….mark my words its already a huge hit in madurai , theni and madras also
1. You write: see if that song is very bad then why would they do thios
You talk as if going to Bollywood is like a trip to Mars.
2. You write: mark my words its already a huge hit in madurai , theni and madras also
Yeah, big shit in Villupuram, Valavanur, Vadalur, Vriddhachalam, Vysarapadi too.
What all you could have done with $0.99.
I heard it once and I then decided not to hear that shit again in my life.
Three oatmeal cookies at Mac. 😉 Hard to do too much damage to oatmeal cookies (at least, we hope so).
NZ 79-2 (after 16 overs) Need 187 to win. 10:43AM EST
SL – 265-9
SL must get rid of the fierce Ross Taylor quickly to have a good chance. He survived a dropped catch.
SI said: Yeah, big shit in Villupuram, Valavanur, Vadalur, Vriddhachalam, Vysarapadi too
that reply shows how good ur broughten up?? respect is somethings that will be coming to you only if you give other people some respect. fools like you will never realize. mark my words, that film is going to rock tamil nadu take care. Im not tyour type to use foul language and scold other people.. take care
Hey, we’re from those parts of Tamil Nadu. Don’t mock our love for our area.
We know what our people in those areas like. If we can elect Captain Vijaykanth as our MLA then you can be certain our people will
loveadore anybody and anything including Evan Di Unna Pethan, Evan Di Unna Kadichan, Evan Di Unna Saptan, Evan Di Unna Potan…..
Mark our words, that film is going to rock 9.9 on Richter scale places places like Villupuram, Valavanur, Vadalur, Vriddhachalam and all over Tamil Nadu.
Simbhu Rocks! Simbhu Tsunami! coming.
err.. I thought this song is fun. 😀 good party song.
Et tu…. 🙁
NZ in BIG TROUBLE – 102-6 after 23.5 overs. 11:22AM EST Murali 3 wickets for 9 Runs in 3.5 overs. Great show.
SL – 265-9
Interesting to see that SL is playing a group match in India..
New Zealand 129-8. No Hope for NZ. 11:54AM EST
Ireland demolished Netherlands. I guess it is time to promote them to the big league before England steals all their good players (Eoin Morgan, Ed Joyce)
Sarah ‘Alaska’ Palin could have probably done that!
Agree with u SI, couldn’t complete hearing this song at first and not tried yet, never will. That bad.
Yuvan is definitely a good music director but this one is bad. Original drums, violins, pianos etc. are missing from music now. Everything is synthesized.
tomorrow and day after tomorrow matches would be good also. Tomorrow Aus vs Pakistan and day after tomorrow india vs WI in madras. dont miss it
Will watch on Willow.
Evandi song was pathetic to say the least.
Some jarring sounds made in the name of the song.
I can’t believe Yuvan has plunged to such “low” depths!!
Irritating voice to say the least.Pain to the ear.
You write: I can’t believe Yuvan has plunged to such “low” depths!!
Did Yuvan ever soar? 🙁
The bozos sound like they gorged on a full vessel of Kaakha Biriyani (crow Biriyani) and then went on a rampage with that
songstupid-shit Evan Di Unna Pethan.
now now SI, dont be too harsh on Yuvan. He’s done some great work in the past, notably in Paruthiveeran, Kadhal Konden, 7G Rainbow Colony, Mounam Pesiyadhe, Naan Mahaan Alla, Paiya, Raam, etc.
Its just whenever he joins with Simbu that he churns out crap…
on another note – pathetic Eng vs SL match. So wanted England to win 🙁
1. You write: Yuvan….done some great work in the past
We diminish the word “great” by using it so cheaply in India and of many undeserving Indians.
Gandhi was great. Baba Amte was great. Bhagat Singh was great. Ennio Morricone (not Indian) is great.
This Yuvan wateva Raja is not great.
2. You have our sympathies on England’s loss. Guess, they should be on the plane by now. 😉
Just listened to the title song from the movie Engeyum Kadhal. Nice soothing melody.
Unfortunately watched Singam Puli in theater.
Jiiva does well.But a pathetic piece of shit overall (3 hours of nonsense and stupid screenplay).Jiiva had a flop in Katcheri Arambam,still he does not learn from the disaster.Well,some people don’t learn!!
Hope he does well in Ko and Nanban (remake of 3 idiots).
1. You write: Jiiva had a flop in Katcheri Arambam,still he does not learn from the disaster.Well,some people don’t learn!!
If Jiva aka Amar B. Choudry were not RB Choudhry’s son, he’d probably be driving an auto in one of the smaller towns of Tamil Nadu like Vellore or Cuddalore or Thirukoilur.
Tamil MA might be an exception, though.
2. iTunes has Engeyum Kadhal. Not sure if it’s worth $7. Must listen to snippets a few more times.
The album has a track Bathing at Cannes.
Sounds interesting. Assuming they show Hansika Motwani Bathing at Cannes as God created her with that Rap song playing in background. 😉
What next in Tamil movies? Music tracks like Bathing at Chennai, Bathing in Cooum, Bathing in Tirupati? 🙁
3. BTW, is there nothing more to life than this stupid Kadhal?
Look at the number of movies with the word Kadhal on IMDB. They may have even missed some. 🙁
Engeyum Kaadhal, ha ha ha. Kadavule kapathu! (god, please
Engeyum Kadhal songs are nice. If you spent god knows how much on ‘Evan Di Unnai Pethan, Kaiyile Kidachan Setthan’, you might just as well get EK. And KO has a really nice song called ‘Ennamo Edho’. The rest arent that great. One of the sounds exactly like Hasili Fisili (its called Amali Thumali; you know what, i think Harris Jayaraj should write his own dictionary, perhaphs then we’ll know what he means by Oh Maha Zeeya, Randakka and whatever). But still, its any day better than this song…
We’ll look at Engeyum Kadhal again tonight on iTunes.
definitely you should watch that movie that movie was not very entertainment movie like siva manasula sakthi or kacheri arambam but jiiva was good and santhanam comedy was ok im just sharing my happy moments after watching that movie not to hurt anyone. instead of watching that horrible India hater freida pinto movie and all you can watch singampuli. mark my words jiiva and simbu movies are very good and they both are talented like kamalhaasan and their movies are always rocking .
1. Even if we want to watch it, we can’t because Singam Puli ain’t playing here no more.
2. What’s wrong with Freida Pinto. She has a great deal of spunk. At least, she’s not going around stealing stuff like that Ulaga Madayan. We may not like her acting but we think she’s a pushy girl trying hard. More power to Freida Pinto. Show us one Indian girl who’s got directors like Woody Allen casting her in their movies!
regardign ur opinion on freida pinto she may be trying hard but is that one quality enough. every one in the cinema field is trying, even aishwarya rai acted in hollywood film and she was also trying hard to get more roles with a good scope for acting. If a poor girl from rural part of india got a big break like slumdog millionaire then she would also be trying hard to proceed further what makes freida pinto so special? she openly stated that she doesnt like to be branded as indian . maybe u NRIs maty like because she is an anglo indian and u consider her as ur people. but will you admit any other actress trying hard as much as this talentless girl freida pinto? kamalhaasan may steal others work but he is still best and has given many good films in the past like devar mahan, kurudhi punal , sigappu rojakkal. michael madana kamarajan, rajaparvai , varumayin niram sivappu and many more. now i agree his recent works like dasavatharam manmadhan ambu are very boring but it doesnt make him as bad as freida pinto. Wody allen may be the best director but even you didnt like the film by freida pinto? that [deleted] will return soon to india after being ignored by hollywood directors and then beg for a chance in bollywood forgetting her statements.
1. You write: maybe u NRIs maty like because she is an anglo indian and u consider her as ur people.
So you don’t think NRIs can be Iyers or Mudaliars or Vanniars or Chettiars.
Hear, hear…all of us can only be Anglo-Indians. 🙁
Could you please explain how a virgin (Mary) could give birth to a son (Jesus). This non-Anglo-Indian NRI would like to know. 😉
2. We like Freida Pinto because she has lots of spunk. No Godfathers, No Miss World title to help her, no Great Face that can launch a thousand ships…just enormous drive.
Ok you didnt ever mention why u compared sucha nasty actress with a legend like kamal haasan.
if she didnt have godfather who is danny boyle. if she didnt act in danny boyles movie and acted in priyadarshans movie instead will be famous as she thinks she is now?? even ajith didnt have any godfather and there are many others like him without godfather. What about maniratnam then?he has a godfather? he is not famous now?
one thing that nasty india hating actress has is luck and that is why she is in this position.
Luck will not be ever lasting she will come to india once again and beg that is for sure
You write: even ajith didnt have any godfather
God Knows how many more crappy films like Billa this thala or vaalu would have subjected us to!
Some of the comments in this thread are hilarious! :))
Kumaraguru, Kamal is a good actor within the parameters of Indian Cinema. Tamil cinema to be specific. He has done some good work in the past. My problem with Kamal is his lack of originality. “Legend” is a very loosely used term in India. Anyone who acts for 2-3 decades ends up being called as a legend.
With so many decades of experience and success, one expects more from Kamal than a freakshow’s like Dasavatharam or stolen scripts like Manmadhan Ambu. A good actor should deliver each time because we pay each time.
1. You write: “Legend” is a very loosely used term in India. Anyone who acts for 2-3 decades ends up being called as a legend.
By that reckoning, Khushboo is already a legend and Namitha on her way to being one.
Though if you ask us, they are already legends for their legendary you-know-what. 😉
2. You write: A good actor should deliver each time because we pay each time.
We agree with the above.
But while an idli is just an idli, a vada just a vada and a kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh (one of the great moments in movie history) this acting thing is so much more complicated. Perceived so much more subjectively and so differently by so many. Of course, we all agree on the greats like Marlon Brando or Laurence Olivier (on the stage) but when it comes to lesser lights like Kamal, Vimal, Bimal…..people tend to diverge so widely.
I would take ‘Goundamani’ as my legend over Kamal any day. I just love goundamani!!! 😉
