Mudhalvane Lyrics Meaning — Mudhalvan | Shankar Mahadevan | S. Janaki

“Mudhalvane,” from Mudhalvan is a playful ode to a lover’s complaints getting overshadowed by politics, is brought to life wonderfully by Shankar Mahadevan and Janaki’s fetching vocals and Vairamuthu’s inventive lyrics. AR Rahman puts his magical touch on the exuberant, carnatic-inspired composition.

mudhalvane song lyrics english translation

Mahadevan and Janaki infuse tremendous verve into the humorous lyrics, and their voices are blissful yet teasing. Janaki croons tongue-in-cheek lines about longing for her Chief Minister boyfriend’s time away from governmental duties. At the same time, Mahadevan lends his smooth voice to reply as the ‘ruler’ justifying his distractions. Phrases like “Won’t I get the relief of your kisses?” highlight the romance underlying the track.

This song’s crux is Vairamuthu’s imaginative poetry, using clever puns like “sign on your heart with the honey ink” to juxtapose political responsibilities against emotional bonds. Witty lines like “opened schools, no time for my bedroom?” bring out the conflict with comic nuance. AR Rahman’s energetic composition shifts seamlessly across emotions with gleeful highs.
