9 days and 5.44 million hits on you tube and still counting..Tke Kolaveri song that flaunts off fancy and cool Tanglish words has struck an instant chord among the young. 

Global lyrics, regional music and a rustic voice..Combination of these three things are the key to the success of this song.

Dhanush  (The singer and actor) Calls it da ‘soup song’ for ‘soup boys

Soup: Failure in Love

Soup Boys: Guy who has just been dumped by a girl

Soup Song: Love Failure Song

Moonu: Moon (also refers to Number 3 in Tamil)

Mama: Dude

Kolaveri: Murderous Rage or Killer Rage

Di: used to usually call girls in a crude way (some thinks its shortened form of de(ar) and boys are called ‘da’ which is shortened form of darling)

Kai: hand

Bovu:   bye-bye by the girls from your life
