Random facts:

1) Just like "hmmm".."aahhh"..."ok"...used as fillers while talking..I use the word "Like" a lot :D Even while describing about things i dont like, i use the word like so many times in my speech that people actually get confused whether i like it or dislike :D (assuming they do listen to what i say in first place :D )

Memories of Mouna ragam

Happened to see Mouna Ragam Movie in Adithya channel today :) There are movies and there is Mouna Ragam. Each time i see the movie it leaves a sweet taste in mind. I can see the whole movie even without the video portion. Just the rerecording and songs are enough for me. Not that i've anything to fault against Rahman-Rathnam combo..but Raja-Rathnam had cast such a wonderful spell on movie goers that their movies rock even after 25 years!!

This movie and Agni Natchathiram are two of THE BEST tamil movies, of modern era atleast. MounaRagam was released during my school days. Would've been in 1st or 2nd standard i guess. I never understood why my elder cousins and friends sisters were gushing about the movie. In fact except for the spiral staircase and the colorful diwans i didnt like anything in the movie when i saw it the first time. The house were Revathi and Mohan shifts too in Delhi, it immediately became my dream palace. The back ground music reminded of Sarangi vadan in DD.…

Yudham Sei

Romba lateaana review :) Still wanted to share with you folks. I dont remember the last movie i posted a review on. Avlo naalachu nalla padam paathu. Inbetween gapla dozen kanakka movies paathaalum..nothing worthwhile to share or post about. But this one..took me by the scruff of my neck and the ending was such a punch that i felt like vomiting. No doubt its a sick sick sicko movie and at the best qualify as offbeat. But the treatment to the story and the awesome awesome screenplay is what carries the movie. If realistic films are not ur cuppa tea better skip this one.

Story is not brand new nor or the situations. But the way the characters are shaped is what makes the movie tick. Cheran, the supposedly hero of the movie, comes as a CBCID officer. To be honest i've never seen a dochu aapicer like that character before. Even the thugs dont get hit when he shoots and marunthukuku kooda no style. Ada Oru Tee shirto coolerso kooda ilapa!!! Still..he looks every bit a police officer. Di…

Vedham puthithu

There are twin kiddos in the apartment opposite to mine. Recently one of our relatives had been to Benares and had brought with them ganga water in small sombu. The kiddos had watched the copper sombu with all curiosity and the moment those relatives left they pounced on it. Since the mouth of the sombu was sealed they werent able to open it. They tried shaking it to check if it really had any water in it. After a while they got disinterested and went to their house.

A few days later one of them came to me with an icecream cup full of water. I asked them what was that water. One of those kids told me it was water from the river Nile. Two things struck me - one was the conviction with which they made that claim and second was the wonderment about their knowledge on the river. I laughingly asked them who told them that the cup had water from River Nile. They told me it was their cousin brother who had traveled abroad had brought it for them. I teasingly asked them that how can they be so…

"Athivasi madam..neenga epo vantheenga?"
"Hey gils..naan ingaye thaana irunthen..nee epo vantha"

The aftermath

On a day like today
the whole world could change
the sun's gonna shine
shine thru the rain
on a day like today
ya never wanna see the sun go down

Well..Nature doesnt exactly go by Bryan Adams lyrics i guess and i wish i never ever see the sun rise again as it did today :(
Super moon or Sumaar moon whatever the crap they call it..it better get away back to its original orbit. The pics of ships and planes and cars and buildings all strewn like garbage and the sight of muddy sea water rushing to swallow more dry land like greedy miser after money..it sends a shudder up my spine to even visualise the scene on my mind. Heart goes for those who bore the brunt of nature's fury. Make no mistake. Japs are a proud race. Once while discussing about weekend plans, being the month of August and Independence day falling that friday it was long weekend for our team. I was chatting with my Japanese counterpart about my weekend plans and casually asked him when is the independence day of Japan. Pat …

Exams - Tense Present for a Perfect Future?

After a long time there was a decent topic on the "Neeya Naana" Chat show in Vijay TV - Exams and the associated stress. The kids spoke in an exceptionally matured tone and compared to their parents they sounded pretty confident and clear on their thoughts. More than their parents they had a better idea of what they need to do get good marks and more specifically as to what their parents were doing wrong in goading them towards getting more marks. How much ever the parents tried to justify their cause and the reason as to why they are pushing their kids towards marks, it still sounded hollow. It was quite paradoxical. Everyone know the reason behind the pressure and but everyone accepted it as a justifiable pressure, even though it sounded silly. To sound politically correct, they argued for a brief while that every child is unique and not every one can become topper. Still, the yearning for pride, the thought of seeking glory in their kids victory shone brightly on every pa…
