Hasili Fisili Rasavali… What the Hell does it mean?

25 Sep

This typical Harris Jeyaraj song from the movie Aadhavan has become so popular since its audio release. Everyone is going gaga over the song. But I am not at all impressed. In fact, I get irritated when I listen to this song as a caller tune or ringtone. Am I a Maverick?? May be… But what makes me get irritated it the Lyrics of the 1st line “Hasili fisili rasavali…”. What’s its meaning and in which language is it? In Hindi there are words “hasle” ” faasle”. But what is rasavali? Was it coined by the Music director/lyricist to make a it rhyming with “kathakali” in the next line? “Sirippinil kathakali” might have been used since Nayantara is a Mallu.

The only good thing about the song is its singer. Karthik always does justice to whatever song he sings (May be because of his Name). I liked Harris-Karthik combo a lot ala  Oru Maalai, Oru ooril azhage, etc. The duo were Awesome. But I was toooo disappointed when listened to  “Anjala…” from Vaaranam Aayiram. No doubt Karthik has sung it to his best. But it’s like  K.J.Jesudass singing “Thannithotti thedivandha kannukkutti…”  Anjana (Hasili fisili…”) is better than Anjala. But still it’s not an extra-ordinary composition like the Oru Maalai & Oru Ooril. I wish Karthik to sing such songs. 

P.S: If anyone tell me the  meaning of “Hasili fisili Rasavali“, they will get a Koffee Mug from my Koffee Klub preferably with their Sun Sign print on the  it!!!

    well… you seem to be lookin at the whole thing very critically… when a guy wants to please his gal, he calls her by various cute names… perhaps somethin lyk hasili fisilye.. mayb he means to say she’s a haseena..
    and for rasavali… we all know wat rasa means.. he might want to say she’s another rasa.. vali has been included to make it rhyme with the next line… :):):)
    in fact, it’s a stupid idea to debate the meanin of the words… the song’s cute.. jus listen to it and feel happy…:-)

    @ n Hindi there are words “hasle” ” faasle”. But what is rasavali? : first we in Tamil try to avoid Hindi & inclusion of hindi word’s in the first line wont be fine going with tamil’s so therzz no way one could agree to the fact tht those may be hindi word’s & as another person ha told may be he has used such words to please his girlfriend …..cuz in tamil people use all word’s to please their girlfriend’s ……so all the word’s were ta same & rasavali may be a sweet as written by the other user …….
