20 Years of Dil Se: What the Malayalam lyrics of ‘Jiya Jale’ actually mean in English

The album of the Shah Rukh KhanManisha KoiralaPreity Zinta starrer Dil Se is unforgettable and one song that stood out was ‘Jiya Jale’. It was the only light-hearted, romantic track in this otherwise intense flick with all the other songs also being in the somewhat dark zone. What also made this song memorable is that it had some lyrics in Malayalam, by Girish Pulthenchri, which gave a nice touch overall. For the Non-Malayalam listeners obviously, it all went bouncer. Dil Se had released in 1998 and this was a time when internet penetration was very weak and hence, securing information was difficult.

Twenty years later, we at Bollywood Hungama finally solve this dilemma and finally present to you the actual lyrics of the song along with the translation in English. Here you go:

Punjirithanji konjikko
Give me a beautiful smile

Munthiri muththoli chindhikko
Steal sweet kisses from me

Vanjani varna chundari vaavae
Oh my beautiful girl

Thaanginnakkath thakadhimiyaadum thanganilaavae hoi
Oh the dancing moonlight

Punjirithanji konjikko
Give me a beautiful smile

Munthiri muththoli chindhikko
Steal sweet kisses from me

Vanjani varna chundari vaavae
Oh my beautiful girl

Thaanginnakkath thakadhimiyaadum thanganilaavae hoi
Oh the dancing moonlight

Thanga kolusallae
You are as beautiful as a golden anklet

Kurugum kuyilallae
You are as mellifluous as a cuckoo

Maarna mayilallae hoi
You are as graceful as a dancing peacock

Thanga kolusallae
You are as beautiful as a golden anklet

Kurugum kuyilallae
You are as mellifluous as a cuckoo

Maarna mayilallae hoi
You are as graceful as a dancing peacock

He kuruvaani kiliyae
Oh my sparrow…

Kuruvaani kiliyae
Oh my sparrow…

Kukkuru kurukuru koovik kurugik kunnimanaththai
While swinging on a branch, your mate is chirping sweetly

Ooyal aadi kooduvagukkik kootu vilikkunnae
He has made a beautiful nest for you

Maaran ninnaik koogik kurugik kootuu vilikkunnae
He is beckoning you again and again

Kukkuru kurukuru koovik kurugik kunnimanaththai
While swinging on a branch, your mate is chirping sweetly

Ooyal aadi kooduvagukkik kootu vilikkunnae
He has made a beautiful nest for you

Maaran ninnaik koogik kurugik kootuu vilikkunnae
He is beckoning you again and again

Thanga kolusallae
You are as beautiful as a golden anklet

Kurugum kuyilallae
You are as mellifluous as a cuckoo

Maarna mayilallae hoi
You are as graceful as a dancing peacock

Thanga kolusallae
You are as beautiful as a golden anklet

Kurugum kuyilallae
You are as mellifluous as a cuckoo

Maarna mayilallae hoi
You are as graceful as a dancing peacock
