Song of the Day: ‘Unakulle Mirugam’ From ‘Billa 2’


Song: Unakulle Mirugam

Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Singers: Ranjith

Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

Actors: Ajith Kumar

Film: Billa 2

‘Unakkulle Mirugam’ from Billa 2 was Ajith and Yuvan’s fifth collaboration. The album released on Ajith’s birthday, May 1 in 2012, amidst rage that was a first even for Ajith Kumar.

The film tells the story of an ordinary man becoming David Billa, an underworld don. Yuvan builds this song on the trademark Billa title track, with guitars and chords that hold attention till the end. This was also one of the few songs for which the lyrics were written first by Na Muthukumar, and set to music later.

A part from the song which says only you are your own friend and enemy:

இங்கு நண்பன் யாரும் இல்லையே
எதுக்கும் பகைவன் யாரும் இல்லையே
என்றும் நீதான் உனக்கு நண்பனே
என்றும் நீதான் உனக்கு பகைவனே

Here, no one’s a friend,
Nor do you have an enemy
You are your only friend
And you are your only enemy

These lines and his songs from Billa 2, Mangatha went on to cement Ajith’s position as a super star.
