You might criticize us for digging old graves, but we still cannot get over the fact that some people in London left music maestro AR Rahman’s concert midway because he played a couple of Tamil songs. While some fail to appreciate good music, there are others who love it irrespective of the lyrics. We belong to the second category. Having said that, we don’t think there’s anyone who will disagree when we say that South Indian songs are one of the trippiest and peppy dance numbers, you just cannot stop yourself from grooving to it. And ‘Jimmiki Kammal’ from Mohanlal starrer ‘Velipadinte Pusthakam’ is one such number. Unless you were living under a rock, you would have definitely heard this song and slyly danced on it too. Well, you are not the only one who is tripping on it, American talk show host Jimmy Kimmel seems to love this song too. Here’s the official video of the song.
While we were busy grooving to this song, there was one guy who noticed the potential of these two becoming a classic example of Homonyms, given how they sound so strikingly similar. He took this opportunity and shared a video of a group of students from Kerala dancing on this song and asked Kimmel if he has heard this or not.

Now that Kimmel has listened to the song and loves it too, let’s hope that he plays it soon on his ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ show.
