Found in mistranslation

"Manithan unarnthu kølla, ithu manitha kaathal allae...Atheyum thaandi, ithu punithamaanathu.." - Gunaa (1991)

I don't entirely understand the Tamil words mentioned in a song from the aforementioned film starring Kamal Haasan and Roshini. If only my Tamil was as basic as my Urdu! However, i can safely presume that it's beautiful. Way too intense. So touching that it doesn't really matter whether i get it completely. Or not.

Update: It means "That man should be provoked by our love, this is not mortal love. Way beyond that, this love is divine."

Wonderful, isn't it?
