Mazhai Kuruvi Lyrics in English | With Translation | – Chekka Chivantha Vaanam

Rather than the direct translation, I can give you the essence of the song which I understood. Because the English words are not going to give you any feel whereas the Tamil words by Vairamuthu (in case you know Tamil)and the meaning in the context of the movie is a delightful experience.

Ethi is a guy who is egoistic, practical and longs for care(as he says to his mom)…

Nee…la mazhai saaral

Thendral nesavu nadathum idam

Nee…la mazhai saaral

The song starts with beautiful description about nature.

Vaanam kunivathilum

Mannai thoduvathilum

Kaadhal arinthurunthen.

Sky bends and touches the land.According to Ethi, if you are to give away your pride and do something ‘not so you’ for someone then it is love.

Kaanam urainthuvarum

Mouna thiruveliyil

Oru gnyaanam valarthurinthen

Idhayam erithirunthen

Naan iyarkayil thilaithirunthen

He is detached from people and enjoys nature.. as he doesnt get the love he longs for from family.

Chittu kuruvi ondru

Sneha paarvai kondu

Vatta paaraiyin mel

Ennai vaa vaa endrathu

She came into his life and showed affection.

Otrai siru kuruvi

Nadathum ooranga nadagathil

Satrae thilaithurunthen

Oru naal kanavil ithu

Peratti per uravo

Yaar varavo

Nee kan thottu

Kadanthidum kaattro

Illai kanavil naan

Ketkkum paatto

Ithu uravo illai parivo…ooo

He enjoyed the joy she brought in his life. He wonders if it’s going to be just a passing cloud.. He wonders if it’s just her sympathy for him.

Vaanaveli mannil nazhuvi


Thisaiyellam mazhaiyil karainthu


Comparing sudden rainfall to her unexpected death

Chittu chirukuruvi

Parantha thisaiyum theriyavillai

Vittu pirinthuvitten

Pirintha vethanai sumanthirunthen

She disappeared from his life and he is bearing the pain in his heart (ARR voice just breaks with emotion and touches our soul)

Vittu pirinthen pirinthen

Uyir nanainthen nanainthen

Antha siru kuruvi ippothu

Alainthu thuyarpadumo


Intha mazhai sumanthu

Athan rekkai vazhithidumo


He suffers miserably.. He even worries about her well being after the death…that of her soul..

Sottum mazhai sinthum

Antha sugathil nanaiyaamal

Ennai ettu ponavanai enni enni

Azhuthathu kaan azhuthathu kaan

The one who loves nature is now not able to enjoy the rain.. instead crying for her..

In the start he said love is something when you do something ‘not so you’. He became attached and unable to be himself anymore(not enjoying nature)
