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.

To listen to the song, click play:

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]
