This ‘poomaram” song is trending one in social media and it is directed by highly talented Abrid shine whose 1983 and Action hero biju are excellent movies, adopted a different script and made it even better with his finesse in making and “poomaram” is the launching cinema of Kalidsan into Malayalam, who is the son of actor Jayaram..
when we translate it is very challenging to convey the exact form and feeling meant by the creator might be because of lack of proficiency in these languages or simply that thing or custom does not exist in the geography and language one is translating “
I am not adopted word by word translation,I opted the words that is closer to the words mentioned in the original song, take it as “creative freedom” of mine..
Aaa…aaaaa… Aaa…aaaaa…
Aaa…aaaaa… Aaa…aaaaa…
Njaanum njaanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
Njaanum njaanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
Me and my dear one and
my 40 companions
have made a ship from a Flower tree (poomaram)
Kappalilaane aa kuppaaya kaari
Pankaayam pokki njaanonnu nokki
Kappalilaane aa kuppaaya kaari
Pankaayam pokki njaanonnu nokki
That beautifully dressed girl is in the ship
I looked at her while lifting my Oar..
Njanonnu nokki avalenneyum nokki
Naappathu perum shishyanmaarum
Onnichu nokki
Njanonnu nokki avalenneyum nokki
Naappathu perum shishyanmaarum
Onnichu nokki
I gazed at her and she also gazed at me
40 of my companions and their disciples looked at once..
Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
Mmmmm…
Me and my dear one and
my 40 companions
have made a ship from a Flower tree (poomaram)
Enthorazhaku.. aa enthoru bhangi
Enthorazhakaanaa kuppayakarikku
Enthorazhaku.. aa enthoru bhangi
Enthorazhakaanaa kuppayakarikku
What a beauty…how beautiful she is…
my darling is really beautiful
Enpriya alle priya kaaminiyalle
Ente hridayam nee kavarneduthille
Enpriya alle priya kaaminiyalle
Ente hridayam nee kavarneduthille
you are my dear and my lover
And you have stolen my heart..
Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Pumaram kondu kappalundaakki
Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Pumaram kondu kappalundaakki
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
Me and my dear one and
my 40 companions
have made a ship from a Flower tree (poomaram)

“poomaram” is an intersting term used in this song, by which the creator used his imagination that suits the overall structure of the song and put forth symbolically the visual beauty of “flowering tree”,we all knows that “poo maram” is not used for ship building and different kind of trees can be included in the “poo maram” list including gulmohar, since the creator used the term “poo maram”, so using the exact word translaing the “poo Maram” “the flower tree” in this song….

poomaram in malayalam roughly translates to “flower tree”
The song by itself lacks meaning and depth.What made this song so viral is it’s melody and the beautiful voice of the singer Faizal Razi.
Chorus: Njaanum njaanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Pumaram kondu kappalundaakki
Him,his beloved and forty people built a boat with poomaram tree.
Kappalilaane aa kuppaaya kaari
Pankaayam pokki njaanonnu nokki
Kappalilaane aa kuppaaya kaari
Pankaayam pokki njaanonnu nokki
Njanonnu nokki avalenneyum nokki
Naappathu perum shishyanmaarum
Onnichu nokki
Njanonnu nokki avalenneyum nokki
Naappathu perum shishyanmaarum
Onnichu nokki
Chorus:Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
This paragraph roughly means that he saw his lover on the boat, and that their eyes met for a brief moment and the forty people(the ones who helped him built the boat) also looked on. Then the chorus.
Enthorazhaku.. aa enthoru bhangi
Enthorazhakaanaa kuppayakarikku
Enthorazhaku.. aa enthoru bhangi
Enthorazhakaanaa kuppayakarikku
Enpriya alle priya kaaminiyalle
Ente hridayam nee kavarneduthille
Enpriya alle priya kaaminiyalle
Ente hridayam nee kavarneduthille
Chorus:Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Pumaram kondu kappalundaakki
Njanum njanumentaalum
Aaa naappathu perumm..
Pumaram kondu kappalundaakki
Poomaram kondu kappalundaakki
that the lady on the boat is so beautiful and that she is his dear one.She has stolen his heart.Again chorus….
Personally I find this song meaningless. Many say that this was inspired from titanic movie,portraying the love between Jack and Rose.Both fell in love while on a ship.
