Made my contribution to Kamal Hassan


I was in no mood to follow the controversy running behind Viswaroopam… But I was standing behind Kamal without showing my support by sending him the ticket money or by shouting in Social Networks…

Also I missed to watch the movie on the first day with my friends… Normally I watch a movie like a mass crowd by shooting at heros intro…

After a while I was too stressed because of some if my relatives and wanted to walkout of home… What is the best place to distract from stress, a place to rest and to pass time… Decided to goto a theatre and the immediate choice was Viswaroopam…

Most people who watched the movie said it was a mediocre movie… But I didn’t get bored at any point of time and importantly I was watching the movie alone…

Come to the controversy part where Muslims were shown as terrorist… I saw more of a reality than exaggeration and I didn’t feel any community being targeted…

What can be done with  Hollywood movies where Muslims are shown in bad light?? Also I saw huge crowds of Muslims coming with family… While coming down I heard a Muslim asking her relative about his thought and he gestured it was like seeing a Hollywood movie and he didn’t see anything wrong in the movie…

Finally movie helped me to relax my mind and my urge to watch Viswaroopam…

Enjoyed MidNights Children


MidNights Children
Thought of taking a break for couple of hours and went to watch MidNights Children

I’ve known Salman Rushdie as a controversial writer and playboy but I couldn’t believe if he had this much imagination…

It was a story of kids born during the time of independence and partition… It covers early days of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh War and Emergency…

Now many people would like the movie as it moves slowly and moves like story-telling…

It is perfectly converted into a movie by Deepa Metha and neat performance by characters… Movie genre takes me back to Malgudi Days…

Now I have to buy all the writings of Salman Rushdie and time for some reading…

And here I come flipkart…

Kamal Hassan a real gentleman


When his movie Viswaroopam was running into problem there were lots of fans who have started sending the ticket money as DD to the actor who has invested a fortune…

I didn’t believe in such acts (sending DD) because for a business person risk is a part of life… He should be ready for unexpected and to overcome situational… Also he is not going to refund the money if the movie is not good…

Anyways fans showed there love and support to this deserving actor… I was curious to know if Kamal would encash those monies or now…

When I came to know that Kamal has returned them all… My respect for him has grown multiple…

You are a true gentleman SIR!!!
You are the true UlagaNayagan…

I’m proud to be a generation which grew watching your classics and master pieces…

Killing Them(US) Softly


Choose to seeĀ Killing Them Softly instead of English Vinglish for following reasons;

  • It is a Brad Pitt starrer…
  • Movie got released in India ahead of US (US release happens on November)…
  • BookMyShow.Com gave a thumbs up…
  • IMDB rating was 7.3/10..

But the reality was totally different… I went to watch a movie after 45 days and that was a long time for a movie buff like me who use to watch 2 – 3 movies a week… I was expecting much more from the movie but returned a bit disappointed…

  • First disappointment was Brad Pitt’s intro which happens almost after 30 min…
  • Movie was full of conversation and I was not in a mindset to watch a movie of thisĀ Genre…
  • BookMyShow.Com is the Digital Partner and their thumbs up was misleading…

Finally I enjoyed last 10 min which was Brad’s how and the Closing punch;

America is not a Country it is a Business

The Holiday Experience


This is one movie challenged to me to finish watching it… First went to my friends house in Yercaud and couldn’t watch the movie completely…

Then I got a CD in Madurai and again I couldn’t finish watching it because of my busy schedule…

Pon my next visit to Madurai I wanted to complete watching the movie and this time there was some problem in the CD…

Finally I accidentally played a movie without realising the CD was inside and not sure about the miracale but CD gofree paired by itself and I watched the movie hassle free… Finally a sense of great relief of completing something which waswalkways challenging me to QUIT…

COMING BACK!! I was impressed with the subject of the movie and not sure how I missed watching this movie on its release…

The movie revolves around breakups and how the leading ladies copes with that failure… Initial explanation on typesold love and the quotes were exceptional…

This movie would have helped me get some solace if I watched during my troubled days…. But even otherwise I ended up doing same things and it helped…

Over all THE HOLIDAY is a biography, motivation and challenge accomplished…
