Thumbi Penne

Kuttan is a very adorable character. He meets Meenakshi; it seems to be his first experience with being in a relationship. This song rightly portrays his infatuation with his new girlfriend in those initial days of their love story.

Thumbi penne kothiyille neril kaanan, vannitunde en velipennu
Kavilathu unde kannadi thundu… chundathu unde chingara chendu
[Hey you dragonfly, aren’t you eager to see her, she’s here, the one I’m going to marry
Her cheeks, shines like a piece of mirror… her lips, red like a bouquet of embers]

Neela kaayalu pol thonnum omal kannanu
Mudi kaarmukilum tholkum naadan chelanu
[Like a blue lake, is her adorable eyes
Her tresses, even the rain clouds can’t compete with their beauty]
Konde pokaam pennaale ponnonakaalathu
Kannu onnu anjum kannaale nee kaanum nerathu
[I will take her home, my lady love, during Onam
So that she can enjoy enticing sights with her own eyes]
Thanga thaamarapol poonthen chinthum nenjanu
Chella tharakalum pennum pande kootanu
[Like a beautiful lotus, flows nectar from her heart
Little stars and my girl have always been friends]

Pulari kilikal kaathoram konchum pole…
Pulakam vitharum chenchillam mozhiyane hoi
[Like the morning birds’ sweet chirping in my ears…
is her mellifluous voice hoi]
Kuliril viriyum poomulla poovum kondu
Hrudhayam pothiyum punchiriyaanee
[On chilly mornings, like the lovely jasmine flower which opens
Envelopes my heart, her smile ]
Ho… onnu avale ninachale mazha pozhiyum
Oh ho… kanmaniye nee kandaatte
[Ho…When I think about her, it drizzles
Oh ho… you watch the precious one]

Neela kaayalu pol thonnum omal kannanu
Mudi kaarmukilum tholkum naadan chelanu
[Like a blue lake is her adorable eyes
Her tresses, even the rain clouds can’t compete with their beauty]
Konde pokaam pennaale ponnonakaalathu
Kannu onnu anjum kannaale nee kaanum nerathu
[I will take her home, my lady love, during Onam
So that she can enjoy enticing sights with her own eyes]
Thanga thaamarapol poonthen chinthum nenjanu
Chella tharakalum pennum pande kootanu
[Like a beautiful lotus, flows nectar from her heart
Little stars and my girl have always been friends]

Nagara thirayil neeradi paadikondu
Ozhukum arayannam pole pennale
[In this city’s waves, she bathes singing songs
gracefully moving like a swan, my girl]
Thodiyil kaliveedu undakum kaalam thotte
Pathivaay kanavil njan kandolee..
[From the days of playing house in my backyard
I have always seen her in my dreams]
Ho… innuvare ivalkaayen manam thudiche
Oh en kanmaniye nee kandaate
[Ho…Till now, for her, my heart beats
Oh you watch my precious one]

Thumbi penne kothiyille neril kaanan, vannitunde en velipennu
Kavilathu unde kannadi thundu… chundathu unde chingara chendu
[Hey you dragonfly, aren’t you eager to see her, she’s here, the one I’m going to marry
Her cheeks, shines like a piece of mirror… her lips, red like a bouquet of embers]

Neela kaayalu pol thonnum omal kannanu
Mudi kaarmukilum tholkum naadan chelanu
[Like a blue lake is her adorable eyes
Her tresses, even the rain clouds can’t compete with their beauty]
Konde pokaam pennaale ponnonakaalathu
Kannu onnu anjum kannaale nee kaanum nerathu
[I will take her home, my lady love, during Onam
So that she can enjoy enticing sights with her own eyes]
Thanga thaamarapol poonthen chinthum nenjanu
Chella tharakalum pennum pande kootanu
[Like a beautiful lotus, flows nectar from her heart
Little stars and my girl have always been friends]
