Suriya starred in the Tamil movie Soorarai Pottru (Translation: Praise the Brave).  The movie featured the song ‘Kayilae Aagasam’.  The song is sung by Saindhavi and tuned in by her husband G.V Prakash Kumar. On 4th September, Amitabh Bachchan had watched the song and was deeply moved by it.

He took to his web blog to write a heartfelt note. Amitabh wrote, “There are times, and there are times, and times bring more than expected at times .. last night was such .. and the emotion so great that it was difficult to control the tears .. and each time it was presented it flooded the eyes .. .. the moment cannot be shared just yet, but its lead up is here .. .. a song .. a Tamil song from a Surya film .. Surya the superstar of the South .. the moment is heartbreaking in the film as can be seen in the video, but yesterday it was put in a different context .. more real .. and it has made it simply uncontrollable for me stop the tears …. it bears the feel of emotion between a Father and Son .. .. this is the video”

English Translation of ‘Kayilae Aagasam’

Amitabh even shared the English translation of the Tamil song on his Tumblr account. It goes like..

Kaiyile Agasam, Kondu Vandha Un Pasam

Kalame Ponalum Vazhnthidum Rasa

Kannile Neerada, Kanja Nelam Porada

Poothadhe Ayiram Poo Sirichidu Rasa

Your love brought the skies within our grasp!

This will live on, even when time is gone!

As tears filled our eyes, as scorched fields put up a fight.

A thousand flowers now in sight! Time to smile, son!

Thoondhirundha Kenilum Pal Surakka Koodumaiya

Thoodhuvala Kambilume Then Vazhiyadho

Uchchi Veyil Velaiyile Undha Varum Thooral Onnu

Thondaiyila Vandhu Vizha Oor Nanaiyadho

Even a dried-up well with milk can swell!

Even from a bitter herb, honey can flow!

Under the hot summer sky, a gentle drizzle floats by;

as it falls on parched throats, the town entire float.

Kaiyile Agasam Kondu Vandha Un Pasam

Kalame Ponalum Vazhnthidum Rasa

Kannile Neerada Kanja Nelam Porada

Poothadhe Ayiram Poo Sirichidu Rasa

Your love has placed the skies within our reach!

This is going to live on, even though time is gone!

As tears filled our eyes, as scorched fields put up a fight,

A thousand flowers now in sight! Time to smile, son!

Annatha Thattula Vechu Ambuliya Katti Ninna

Thayume Ninavu Nerunga Porandhadhu Kalam

Kannathula Kaiya Vechu Kathirundha Sanangalum Than

Pallakkila Yeri Poga Maranjathu Sogam

Pallakkila Yeri Poga Maranjathu Sogam

As she fed you, plate in hand, Mother pointed to the faraway moon!

Now, the time has come For the mother to taste the moon!

The people who waited With a yearning look in their eyes.

They can now sail to the skies. For sorrow has met its demise!

Reportedly, Amitabh was deeply touched by this song.  In addition to this, he shared that even mentioning the song makes his emotions stir. Also, G.V Prakash the music composer of the song replied to Amitabh’s post.
