Why This Kolaveri Di (Tamil: ???? ???? ??????? ??, Voy Tis Kolave?i Di ?; English: Why This Murderous Rage, Girl?) is an Indian song from the soundtrack of the upcoming Tamil film , which is due to be released in 2012. Written and sung by Dhanush, the song was composed by music director Anirudh Ravichander.

Creation of the song

According to 18-year-old composer Anirudh Ravichander, the director Aishwarya Rajinikanth Dhanush (who is the wife of the actor Dhanush) wanted a "light-hearted" song about failed love. Ravichandar quickly composed the tune. Dhanush then began work on the lyrics, which he completed in about 20 minutes of playful singing and writing.In an interview to The Times of India, Dhanush said "When I was writing down the lyrics, I kept in mind all the English words that are used in the Tamil vocabulary. Words like I, you, me, how, why, cow.. I just framed them into sentences and thats how I came up with the song.

After an early version of the song was leaked to the internet, is creators noticed its popularity and decided to go for an official release.


The words of the song are in a simple form of Tanglish, a mixture of Tamil and English. The singer is presented as an Indian boy whose girlfriend has rejected him.
