‘Naan Yaarumillae’ from ‘Thamizh Padam 2.0’ shows you what a hero’s opening song is really like

The hilarious first song from CS Amudhan’s ‘Thamizh Padam 2.0’ is out.

Filmmaker CS Amudhan and actor Shiva have returned to do what they do best.

The teaser for Thamizh Padam 2.0, a sequel to their 2010 parody Thamizh Padam, showed that the duo were going to continue to make fun of overused plot devices, character types and mannerisms of popular actors in Tamil cinema. The team has released the first song from the film, Naan Yaarumillae, which pokes fun at the quintessential Tamil film hero.

The song is fashioned on the lines of a traditional opening song that marks the entry of the hero in the average potboiler. It opens with a group of women praying to the hero to come save them from a raging fire. But instead of a muscle-flexing saviour, they get Shiva who, while flexing his muscles, asks them to spare him of these brave tasks.

With hilarious lyrics by CS Amudhan and Chandru, the song upturns the idea of a laudatory introduction to the mighty and powerful Tamil hero. Even as the police and community beg Shiva to save the day, he declares that he is a nobody and is not here to do anything useful. “Enakku mass illa, velocity illa, volume illa, gravity illa,” he confesses (I don’t have mass, velocity, volume or gravity).

Naan Yaarumillae also pokes fun at popular catchphrases specific to popular actors and their films in the recent past, starting with Rajinikanth’s Kabali (“Neruppa da” becomes “Paruppu da”) to Ajith’s “Varen ma” from Vivegam.
