Tamil Nonsense - Addictive.

While this viral video for a 2012 film track has upset some Indians who are not used to nonsense lyrics, we love the singer's nonchalant voice, the pace of the song, the crisp drums and the changeovers. And the upset, of course we love the upset it's causing! (Despite the awful patch of pitch corrector).
This mesmerising and controversial song is in Tanglish (Tamil/English) with a lot of nonsense thrown in, the main chorus line is "Why this murderous rage, girl?" The film "3" is a psychological thriller, written by the singer Dhanush's wife Aishwarya R. Dhanush, and the song is written by her cousin Anirudh Ravichander, who did the sound track to the film "Ice-eh, scotch-eh, glass-eh, full-eh!"
Safe to suppose that detractors haven't enjoyed any of the gibberish of Lewis Carrol's poems and the like then? Plus there's an English version but it's poor by comparison.
