Laila Ponnukku Kannalam


This name may be more popular than what it is now, if she acted in VIP instead of Simran, in which she was booked initially. But the things changed because of gossips made on her about extracting more money from producer by staying in five star hotel, even before having a shooting of single frame. Ok..Forget all that.

Now she going to marry a Mumbai-based businessman on Jan-6. I have a doubt now also, that how these heroines going as a life partner to a businessman always. She acted in very few than expected, but did good jobs in Nanda, Ullam Ketkume, PithaMagan, Kanda Naal Muthal and Innum en manakanakil varatha sila padangal. In between there was a gossip that director Bala going to marry Laila. That came to end, once Bala tied a knot for a Madurai girl.

Anyway, nobody going to miss Laila, like Simran. Whenver I thought Laila, her cheek with small
hollow will come to my mind.

Congrats Laila...

Adieu 2005

It is the time to give a walk backwards onto the roots of 2005.
What is special in this year and what sort of incidents I come across...

I had visited Vadapalani Murugan Temple veryless in this year, when compared to 2003 and 2004.In my Chennai life, it is the place I have visited more times than anyother.Initially I tried to go fortnightly and then it came to montly. Now It drags to bi-monthly.Going to Vadapalani, give me a peace-thoughtful moments, I forgot my life, my wealth when I see the Murugan. I love Muruga..from my childhodd days. When I was in my home I usually visit Palani atleast once in a year..and most of the time my hairs were devoted to Thandayuthapani. My weekend plan is going to Vadapalani Temple this saturday.

Another acheivement (on 12-Jul) is my 'Bike Kanavu'. Before buying my Hero Honda splendor plus, I had a thought to book Bajaj's discover (I omitted Pulsar from my list, by seeing its weight and height). But evrybody, When I asked whats to buy, suggested to buy splendor. At that time I able to justify the question arise in mind about the number of splendor in Chennai.. It's black (is black horses there) with blue wings. I liked it very much. But after this continuous rain, it covered with lot of dust and manage, by clearing the dust nearby my seat. I have to wash my bike in this weekend.

Change of my work place. I would call it like that only. Now I am in Tidel, with comfortness in Job at TCS. This was my College Days Dream to get into TCS.BUt didn't have single chance right from there. When I had, God makes all things right and Now I am here. I am also trying to make my company to climb to Top 10.

It is a black year for me as film-goer. I saw very few number of released movies and not able to see more because of my resolution of not-seeing-movie-on-pirated-VCD. Eventhough, went to all the films, which are listed in Top 10 in both the category (BO and quality) of movies. Chandramukhi, Anniyan, Ghajini, Arinthum Ariyamalum, Ji (First day, Second show as Rasigan), Thavamai Thavamirunthu, Ayya, Ullam Ketkume,London, Aei, and A Aa. In UG at Madurai, I spent most of the time to see all Tamil movies, Even twice at some time, with my friend Manikandan. I really missed that times truely.

And Everyyear, My friends list getting added and some pages of that book is remaining there, without touching for a quite long time. Eventhough the list is becoming big and it's tough to manage time for all, it becoming quite voluminous. Everytime I get scolded from somebody not putting a call to them. Eventhough I love to have many as friends and having them throughtout
my life.

This year my heart-near friends flied to various lands and digging there to bag dollar/pounds
to India. Some are Krishnakumar, Senthilkumar, Kubendran, Devi, Pradee, Gayathri and still more. When we had our campus interview at our college, everything was a dream..Even entering into a doorsteps of a high-profile company. Now we are positioned to go onsite, from the same company. Inspite of staying and sticking there with greencard, life of 1-4 years will be enough. It's purely upto the person. That is my own thought.

As all know, the list very long..Will write more, if have time.

Good Bye 2005 varudamE!!

Puli Varuthu..Puli Varuthu

[Intha pOstirkkum Mele Ulla Padathirkkum satrum sambantham kidayathu]

After a awesome success of Ghajini, which had inspirations from the Hollywood film, Memento, now the Puli of Vijay-SJSuryah has the traces of The Punisher.

Vijay doing a cop role first time in his career and SJS is now changing the story of The Punisher for Tamil.The movie Punisher was an action based thriller with lots of fighting, gunplay and explosions. The hero of the movie was an FBI Special agent who overcame the villains with his intelligence and iron determination.

Intha padam Nija Puliya... illai Puli thOl porthiya Pasuva..
April 14 will reveal the answer..

Cinema-vum Thamizha-num

After seeing yesterday post of bbthots, I was in hurry to send answers. My friends named me in different names as Another film news Ananthan, Cine Database, etc. First time I want to test that. So I had answered all the questions in the time span of 5 minutes and send the answers to balaji. I am eagerly waiting for the results like a Higher secondary waiting to see his results.

Actually these type quizzes are funny and will brush-up our memory power. Hope balaji got a lot of responses for this through mail.

Whenever I saw a film, I will see it from the title card by watching the name of each and every technician. That habit started from my UG where my friend also like me. We watched atleast 5 movies a week, some films may be repeated. Couple of times, we went for continuous shows. Now it get minimized because of the work I am doing and the cost of tickets at the theatre, in Chennai. But I will never see the films, through pirated CDs, eventhough I met lot of chances for that.
In my village, I wondered by seeing many of my friends/people, criticizing the film with their story, screenplay and technical aspects. Every Thamizhan is linked with some movie or hero and he worshiped that hero without any limitations. We cannot pull them away from cinema.

Whatever may be the thoughts or ideas, please see the film in theatre. Avoid seeing the film through pirated CDs. It is equal to the credit somebody getting from the work you are doing. Will you accept that?

Puthusu Kanna Puthusu

A new search site in the name of Previewseek has come up with some more options like previewing and categorizing the results. Check here to have a look of the new site. If you type 'Mercury' in google and it will also show you results of Planet mercury even if you are looking for info on the element called Mercury. Where as in PreviewSeek first you get different categories of mercury (Planet, Element and what not!) and from there you can proceed only into that

Is it going to be a Google's Nambiar...

Mella Thamizhini…

On first week of December, one of my friends called up and asked to tell the first 5 lines of Aththichchudi. I had started and stuck on 3rd line. He needs that because he was playing Chris Mom- Chris Child game among his team. Then I called some more friends and I asked the same. Everyone started and not able to pass to 3rd line. At that time, I wondered. At last, I found here and conveyed it to him. He got couple of chocolates by winning. Is it true that, we are slowly forgetting all our old epics and writings? If you also like me, in asking the same question, then please try to spread that and make awareness among the children...

The stampede for relief funds which got 42 people killedwas the most terrific one, hits Tamilnadu now. Is it because of the Government inability in controlling people or people inorderness in getting the money. Whatever may be the reason it happened andtoday 42 families are suffering by the loss its member.My deep conslation to the family and atleast Tamilnadu should learnthings from these incidents. Government staff should take correct precautionary steps to avoid these things in future.

If they could learn lessons from the Visayarpadi incident(same kinda thing happened before 40 days), they will avoid this.

Cini Thulikal

Thalaivar's Shankar directed Sivaji has official website. But that still under construction. You can see the developed one in ten or twenty days.

Thalai's Godfather resumed and one week shooting is going on. Hope the film will be released for Feb 14.

In Sivaji, Rajkiran may act. Rajni and Shankar get impressed after seeing his talent in TT.

Yesterday on Thinathanthi, a leading Tamil newspaper, I saw an advertisement of the Sandaikozhi. The movie going to release today. Nearby that, another ad, which made me a convulsive laughter, is the pooja of the film Vedakozhi. Mumtaj is the heroine. On what basis directors are selecting the name of the film. Do you have any idea.

After marriage, Top star Prashanth have couple of films n his hands..Thagappan Sami, Petrol, Pulai Visaranai II, Jambavan, Runway are the films in line..Ellam puthu ponnu vantha neram...

After 2003 diwali, both Ajith and Vijay going for hunt at box-office for Pogal 2006. Who will one? Like Rajni and Kamal, only one had success, when their films get released simultaneously.
For Villan and Bhagavati, Villan did well and among Thirumalai and Anjaneya, first did good business..Now Vijay's Adhi and Ajith's Paramasivan..Who going win?

Kanda Naal Mudhal

I can honestly declare that Yuvan made the flim watchable with his remarkable songs and pleasing background throughout the film. The movie which is a musical hit before the release, will always do good business most of the time. You want to watch a entertainment movie, you can step-in to the theatre, where KNM is screened.

Always I have a good opinion about Prakashraj and the way he selected the movie as a producer. Full of entertainment without a single over-masaal-ed item like item number, double enterndre, hyped stunts, low-taste sleaze etc.. For me, Azhagiya Theeye is very good than KNM, eventhough first one was bad at Box-office.

The flim is a narration of two - obviously hero prasanna and Heroine Laila, and how they get into heart-touch life. The third person Karthik is also there. So you can expect traingular love..but in some different dress. It is a debut of Priya V as a director after well-shaped by Maniratnam..She did each and every frame in a touchy manner, where you can enjoy the flow of movie, without any jerks. The picturisation of songs are very nice and that shows who is her teacher...

Prasanna..After Azhagiya theeye..he perfomed very well here, where he used the opportunity well as a actor. The way he expressed his feelings in climax and some scenes before that is really good. Prakashraj found a low-budget actor, who will also do good at screen.

Laila..After a lovely and screaming performance in Ullam Ketkume and Pithamagan, she steals the show in KNM. She came and occupied our heart with his remarkable, well-defined action. But I am missing something in her, when compared to a lifetime action in Nanda. (Her acts in Pun paniya song is still in my eye)

Karthik..As a american-trendy lover boy, expresses his feeling very well..but less scope for acting..

As a cameraman, PC.Sreeram did some blacky, darkened shots, which is his trend-set touch. I thought he is still in 90's where he has to bring some new ideas to film, instead repeating the same manner.

Another thing is its dialogue(E.Ramadoss), which is very good in some places. This make the movie to go with smooth flow.

Instead of watch some usual trend cinemas like Sivakasi, this will be a good one to see and spend time, which willl not put any violence, sexy thoughts in our mind.

The film has nothing to teach, nothing to bore, nothing to embarrass you. But you can sit comfortable in your seats.

Kanda Naal muthal..becomes a hit movie on padalgalai Ketta Naal Muthal..

Kandal Naal Muthal..Thendral

Vetkam! Vetkam! Vetkam!

I am able to see lots of blogs (Including this) saying happy birthday to Rajnikanth and Cheran on Dec 12. Anybody know that Dec 11 is a birthday of Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar? Is the way to acknowledge him and his thoughts.

Oh..So that had he written the song..

This day spread lights and try to make our heart, with full of spritual knowledge. I accept the thoughts of Kaviyarasu Kannadhasan in his Arththamulla Inthumatham. He said that each and every activities insisted by Hinduism have some meaning. It's really true. Did you realize that? I am going to list out the activities and true meaning behind that in my future blog.

Happy Karthigai!

Happy Bday Cheran..

Today is a birthday of another man from cini world..Mr.Cheran..who paves a new route for Tamil Cinema..and occupies a different pinnacle.

I really get impressed after seeing his interview with sify and the way he answered for the question about the length of the movie.

Don’t you think that TT was a bit lengthy for the audience?
If people can watch a one-day cricket match patiently without missing a single ball for nearly 8 hours why not my film? It is only 3 hours and 22 minutes!

Happy Bday Cheran...

Happy BDay Thalaivaaa!!

ithu Net tea-Kadai

It's essential to have a ecopy of daily newspaper in Tamil. Dinamalar have made this and you can view that here.

Thanks to Keerthi and my college friend Muthu, the people who introduce this to me.

Gone are the days..
sitting in tea-kadai and reading new papers..

Reviews on Magazine

I always have trust on content quality of Ananda Vikatan (AV) and their film review. I know most of the people also have same opinion on AV. You might see lot of the film posters having the marks of AV in that. Up to my knowledge, still Nayagan and Mahanadhi stay on top with 60 out of 100. After a very long period Cheran's recent product Thavamai Thavamirunthu owns good review with 53. (Autograph is 48) I have faith on AV's film review, which will explains each and every technical thing of the film. Many people decide to go to film after seeing its review.

Meanwhile, Kumudam also gave 4.7 out of 5 for TT. I always wonder about the reviews of Kumudam. I am unable to come for some conclusion that whether they are reviewing the film based on Quality or on commercial. They rated latest movies under two topics such as Box office Top 5 and Kumudam Top 5. According to sify, Kandal Naal mudhal is in top of all the films in box-office for last week which is not appearing in Kumudam box office top 5.

But the views on films will be different from people to people and always AV and Kumudam will be at two ends. Eventhough, TT got high ratings among all with their quality and content, don’t know whether make profit at box office.

After trimming the film by 12 minutes, to give a relief to theatres, we have to wait for another one week, to see whether these ratings do magic at box-office.

Thanks Kamal'Ji'

When I read an article in Behindwoods, I said thanks to Padmasree Kamal to bring new technical things to Tamil Cinema. His latest imported one is shooting Vettaiyadu Vilayadu film in 35 mm cinemascope. Vettaiyadu vilaiyadu is the first film in Indian Cinema shot in 35 mm. Other well known made in 35 mm is mega hit Hollywood film Titanic. Still VV has 25 shooting remaining. The film is scheduled to release on April 14.

Nooravaathu Naal..Is it Real?

Surya starrer Aaru is going to be released on Dec 9. This flim going to remove and replace Sivakasi in most of the theatres in Chennai and State. Now Vijay and his father S.A. Chandrasekar asked the theatre owners to retain and continue sivakasi atleast for 50 days. On Dec 8, Sivakasi completing its 38th day. It happened to Ghajini when it was replaced by Sivakasi, on its 39th day Even the theatres, which going to release Aaru, have Vijay's Aadhi in their hands to be release on Pongal, which again 35th day of Aaru.Theatre owners are explaining that they are getting collections only from first 20-25 days. After that the flim is running only on compulsion of stars.

Still I have doubt about Vijay's Sachien which completes its 200th day in Chennai (One theatre, One show). It seems it was happened because of its hero. When I saw the 100th day poster of Sibiraj's Jore, I was totally collapsed and got smiles.I came to conclusion that I shouldn't go to films only on seeing the posters showing the number of days with highlight.

When I was in my hometown, some people said that if the film run for 100 days in Madurai, then it will be super hit. Don't consider Chennai for this, where it would be running because of the hero/producer.

Is the number of days going to be a rank for the heroes?

Thavamai Thavamirunthu

Thanks to Cheran for giving an opportunity to have a view of our childhood days and the parental care. The flim is a bio-graphy of a father by a son, while the father counting his days in hospital bed.

The film is about Muthiah (Raj Kiran) , his wife Sarada (Saranya) and his two sons. Elder son is Radio Mirchi RJ Senthil in the name of Ramanathan and Cheran lived as Ramalingam. Muthiah is the owner of a printing press and by his hardwork and by getting loans, he giving a good education to his children. He wanted to make his sons to be in a good positions. And Ramanathan joins in Polytechnic and Ramalingam joins Engineering.

After getting marriage with Latha (Meena), Ramanathan moved to led a city life, because of Latha, who is not adjusting with Muthaih and Saradha. Meanwhile, Cheran falls love with Vasanthi (Padmapriya). Situations make Vasanthi to pregnant by Ramalingam (Here I have to appreciate Cheran, where he captured this without a single bit of Vulgarity. Imagine if Some others (Selvaraghavan, Balumahendra) has directed the same.. ) and they are pushed to go Chennai to marry. There they get a girl baby. By realizing their mistakes, they return to Village to led a life with their parents. Ramalingam taking care of his parents till their last minute and give them a peaceful life with great enjoyment.

Everybody will get drop of tears, when Rajkiran come to Chennai to see and to give money to Ramalingam. Film starts with black and white screen and all present tense will be in black and white whereas past are in colour (like HeyRam). Rajkiran did a great performance and his fabulous acting will make us to realize many things in our life. He dominated the whole film and where he is the hero of the flim by story itself. Saranya also did a lifetime character which is not easy to get these type of roles. She handles it really well. Cheran as director got all the emotions from actors very well as per his expectations. Even the new comers Radio Mirchi RJ Senthil and Meena done their job very well. Padmapriya got a good opening in Tamil cinema.

Music is by Sabesh-Murali. Their creative background is good support for the film and the songs 'ore oru orrile', 'unnai saranadathen' are on top. In audio, you may hear a song 'Ola' which is very native to Madurai (Oppari kina song) is not present in the flim.

The drawback of the flim is its length. We can't say it is slow, because cheran need the expressions and emotions to be realistic. No wonder Cheran calls it a novel on screen it really u a feeling of turning the pages in a good novel.

Really a very good movie and everybody should see the flim and should take care of their parents. But it will be nice if you watch this with your parents.
Cheran by his bold and realistic way, has directed a good life in big screen, without compromising anything. Every bit of a film is an emotion. But don't know whether the people will sit for a long time. If they sit, then the flim will be success in box-office also. Then only we can expect good film in tamil cinema.

Congrats Cheran

BAZZ - Today's Boss

[Chepauk Stadium on December 2, 2005. Picture Courtesy : The Hindu]

It seems that Rain Goddess always wants to watch the match played by India. So that it always comes to Chepauk MA Chidambaram stadium, Chennai, whenever there is a match. Still yesterday, it was cloudy. But today morning, it started pouring in Chennai. Chennai enjoying(?) continuous rainfall for the past 5 hours. The result First day of First Test match between India and Srilanka getting abondoned. Now rain is a baddie character for Cricket fans and they are throwing words malevolently against rain, thinking as if Nambiar has comes between MGR and JJ.

Already there is a case in HC against Cricket Association, in paying back of money collected for third ODI between South Africa and India. Some organisations pasted posters in the city buses asking to return Money or to give that as a flood relief fund.

Yesterday, fans were stayed for long hour in queue to get their tickets for the Test match. Will the Bazz (new name of present storm) allow it to happen?

When I heard an Ironic statement("After release of the film 'Mazhai' only, Chennai is getting this heavy rain.") by a stranger while walking in a road-side platform, I was smiled and thought about the life of tamilians and cinema.

Still something is there to be washed out in our minds...

Cheran-in Thavam Kalainthathu...

Cheran was happy to see his film on white screen after a month delay. Thavamai Thavamirunthu going to release tomorrow, Dec 3. I am able to see couple of posters of 'TT' all over Chennai with photos resembles like 'Autograph'. Songs are also good to hear and some are folk numbers. Now length of the film has reduced to 3 hours 11 minutes where it was 3 hours 42 minutes previously.

We Cheran is the director giving a moral based cinemas, with have different life-base-line in his films. And all films earned good ratings among people eventhough some doesn't pick money well in theatres. I am sure this will be another feather in his cap. And I am eagerly waiting to see his Thavamai Thavamirunthu.
Wishing Cheran and his 'TT' to have good entry and to do good business at box-office.

World's A.I.D.S Day

Today is World's AIDS day.
This picture says more than my words.
