The Black Beauty

April 23, 2010 9 comments


When I listened to the song “Aval appadi onrum azhagillai” from the movie, Angadi Theru I liked it instantly. I thought the song had amazing lyrics. Generally lyricists in tamil cinema when talking abt love, romance, they heap laurels on the gal. This one was an exception. The poet (Naa.Muthukumar)  talks about his lady love, her superficial beauty in the first line and then in the second , he talks about beauty from within and so goes the song. I wanted to represent the song (atleast the first few lines) in a sketch and hence this one.

The songs first line begins by saying she isnt beautiful, so I didnt want to sketch a face and say this one aint beautiful. That would be a sin of sorts 😛 . Hence just the gals background. For the simple lyrics, here is a simple rustic gal.

“Aval appadi onrum azhagillai

Avalluku yaarum ennaiyillai

aval appadi onrum colourillai

aanal adhu oru kuraiyillai

aval peridhai yedhuvum padikavillai

avallai padithey mudikavillai

aval uduthum udaigal pidikavillai

irundhum gavanika marukkavillai”

Here is the translation of the above lyrics.

“She isnt that beautiful,

But her beauty is unparallaled

She doesnt have a fair complexion

But that doesnt bother me.

She isnt that well educated [not good at studies]

But I havent finished studying her.

I dont particularly like her choice of clothes

But I dont fail to notice her though.”

After ‘the proposal’, it is just logical to follow up with getting ‘Hitched’… This is my take on the movie poster of “The Ugly Truth”.

Shringara – Rasa2

November 3, 2009 9 comments

Shringara means love and beauty. This is the emotion used to represent that which appeals to the human mind, that which one finds beautiful, that which evokes love. This is called the king of all rasas and is  most frequently portrayed in art. Classical Dance expresses this rasa in a lot of ways. This is the only rasa that makes us forget to think about  our well being in the first place. There are various interpretations for this rasa like being used for  the love between friends, the love between a mother and her child, the love for god or the love between a teacher and his disciples. The most common/popular form of Shringara is the love between a man and a woman.  9/10 Indian films exploit this rasa in one form or other. But thats what makes what we are 😛

Here in this sketch I have tried to portray  a sweet anticipation of a woman as she waits for her lover and thinking abt her lover she is lost in thought.
