Mizhiyil Ninnum

(Translation on request for AN)
This beautiful song that gives you a feel of the timelessness of Appu’s and Mathan’s love. I can’t figure out what I love most about this – the lyrics, the music or the way it is sung. A gem by Anwar Ali and Shahabaz Aman for sure!

To listen to the song, click play:

Mizhiyil ninnum mizhiyilekku
thoni thuzhanje poyi nammal… melle…
[From eyes to eyes
we (our gazes) rowed a boat, slowly]
Mazha arinjill(a)-iravu arinjill(a)-akamazhinjo nammal thammil… melle…
[The rain didn’t know, the night was unaware, that we lost ourselves to each other, slowly]

Aniyam aayi nee amaram aayi njaan..
Udal thulumbi thoovi,thammil… melle…
[From the front(of a boat) who is you, to the stern who is me
(our) bodies filled and spilled, between us… slowly]

Thoni niranju, praanan kavinju..
eenam aayi nammil… melle…
[Filling the boat, transcending our lives
became a tune in us…slowly…]
mayaa… nadhi…
[this enchanting river]

Harsham aayi.. varsham aayi..
vinnile vennila thoovalayi naam..
[We became happiness, we became rain
We became the feathery moonbeam in the sky]
Oru thudam* neer theliyiloode paarnnu nammal namme..
melle.. melle..
[Through a cup of clear water, we saw each other
slowly, slowly]
Pala nira poo vidarnna pol,
punchiri niranjo raavin chundil?…melle..
[Like flowers of myriad colors blossoming
did a smile brim on night’s lips?…slowly]

Mizhiyil ninnum mizhiyilekku
thoni thuzhanje poyi nammal… melle…
[From eyes to eyes
we (our gazes) rowed a boat, slowly]

Thoni niranju, praanan kavinju..
eenam aayi nammil… melle…
[Filling the boat, transcending our lives
became a tune in us…slowly…]
mayaa… nadhi…
mayaa… nadhi…
[this enchanting river
this enchanting river]

*thudam is a unit of measurement.
