Oct 2nd International day of non violence..and i ended up watching the most violent movie ihave ever seen..Apocalypto!! Mel gibsonuku ennapa achu..i dunno whether to appreciate him for the awe inspiringly original way in which the movie has been shot or to despise him for the graphical gore..Right from scene one its revoltingly original..at times i could feel my jaw hurting from clenching it through the scenes..the movie is a candid camera on tribals with usual cinematic exaggeration thrown in at places. Not for those with milder taste.
En iniya Iyanthira...the moment i hear this name its takes me back to the gud ol days of DD...Guess it was Sivaranjani who played the role of Nila in that..who can forget that dog Juno, sujathas best creation after ganesh n vasanth..i was browsing through the tamil section in a book store and unearthed this gem..have read the book in my school days and always wanted to own one..and now i have it :) planning to start a collection of sujatha novels...lets see how far it goes :)
Another book which i bought was Vikramaathithan kathaigal..yup..the same ol vikram vetal series...amazing..inag oru story full mudikarathukulla nora thalluthu..in that vikramathithan series..each story has an interlink with some story or other which leads u into a labyrinth of stories and mesmerisingly take you through the magical world of vikram and in a simple yet interesting way the knots and loops unfold and it all comes to a meaningful conculsion..amazingly simple yet so complex...chancela..if u'vent read it yet..chk it out...makes nice read..
Vera enna pannen..hmm..Bourne Ultimatum padam paathen...its no way related to the Original story from the book..but its somewhat better than the book...very very fast movie..racy is slow to describe it..guess the cameraman mite win an oscar..WOW..the car chasing scene in climax..i wonder how many cameras were used..its a no brainer scene by concept but amazingly shot..padam enamo usual tamizh telugu masala padam mathiri thaanalum...kaathula pooku badila thoatamay sutharanga...but 2 hour ponathay therila semma fast..makes nice weekwend watch with hot popcorn..( u need not buy more than a pack as the movie wud be over by the time u come to the second one ;) )
