WMW-NewYork

Under Weekend Movie Watch..its time for "NEWYORK" :)

My philo for life is that if you don't have much expectations you wouldn't be much disappointed. Guess it applies for movies also. I wasnt too much impressed with the promos for this movie and neither was the song too impressive, with the howling interlude which is becoming typical of all Preetam's songs. But the movie was a major surprise. Unlike the usual run-of-the-mill candy floss romantic stories, which they churn out one after another, this one from the Yash raj banner is a different package. It does have its romantic moments. But very few and far between.

The opening shots are direct lift from a famous Hollywood movie of Denzel Washington..forgotten the name :( Anyways..i guess, Newyork city is the latest obsession amongst Bollywood directors. Wherever Karan Johar goes..Bwood follows!! Have a life folks. The title has no significance to the movie theme except for the location. ( After seeing NY so many ti…

The King is dead..Long live the King

The perennial BAD boy of music world..The King of POP..is no more. My initiation to english music was thru him only. "Beat it" was the first song i heard and fell in love instantly. My personal favourite of all his songs is "heal the world". Excellent lyrics and wonderful music. For a person who dominated the world music scene king size..he did had his fair share of controversies to fight with. I guess its the curse of the musicdom that instant fame is accompanied with imminent embarrassments. My longtime desire was to attend a LIVE concert of MJ...now that is one desire of mine which will never be fullfilled :(
My Dear "Black/white" man..may your soul rest in peace, now atleast.

Reason,Season or Lifetime??

Oru blogla comment sectionla paathathu thaan intha post. Liked it so much..atha apdiye forwarda potruken inga.

*********************************************************************************
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this Person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered an…

WMW-Weekend movie watch

Intha weekend amogama poachu. Saturday fullday was at home.. No company to oorsuthufy. So oru pathu pathinanju DVD'sa fridayvay vaangitu vanthu ootlaye settle aayachu :)

There are movies which makes you feel so alien from the theme..full of fantasy that you can only dream about..and there are movies that relate to you so well that you can immediately link yourselves to them. "PASANGA" falls in latter category.

First feeling you get after watching the movie is..NICE :). You can come out of it with a smile on your face..feeling positive. Good time pass movie. Adults vachu ithey kathayae eduthiruntha mokkaiyaatam irunthirukum. The way in which they have utilised the kids in the movie is marvellous. Especially that Bonda kid and the villain kid. Kalakirukaanga rendu pasanaglum. Adhuvum antha bonda paiyan soooooperu...

Here i am....

My favorite Bryan Adams song...nachu lyrics..everytime i hear this one..its so relaxing and has a positive pull in it. And the music rocks too..simply love this one :) check it out.

Here i am , This is me ,
I come in to this world
so wild and free...

Here i am , so young
and strong , right here
in the place where i belong.

Its a new world ,
Its a new start ,
Its a life with a beating
of a young heart , Its a new day,
In a new land, and its waiting for me...
here i am...

Oh its a new world , Its a new start,
Its a life with a beating of a young
heart , Yeah its a new day , in a new land
and its waiting for me...
Here i am...

Gud old days...hmmm...avlo distant memorieslaam ila. Most of my happy times were in recent past only. The time i get to spend in Banglore was the happiest period of my life. 6 varusham epdi poachunu yosichi kuda paaka mudila..it simply flew away. Manasuku pudicha velai..excellent friends..good environment..nenachapo 6 hrsla odi vanthira thoorathula chennai..pleasant climate..great people..vera enna venum lifela. I had everything to my hearts fill there. Innum konjam overa solanumna..i grew as a person in banglore. Careerwise, personwise epdi parthalum it was THE best period.

I met loads and loads of wonderful people, who left a big impression on my life and in the way in which i saw life. At times it used to make me feel so complex..epdida ellarum ivlo nallavangalaa irukangannu :) Ennoda attitude, personality, behaviour...everything went for a sea of cha…

I've never hated a place more on the first day itself than this city. I tried my level best to avoid this trip in first place and ended up getting tripped into this for long term(huh..no more negative thoughts). vantha mudal naalay mangalagarama pursea pickpocket adichitanga. kathanyagan sv sekar pandiarajan mathiri gaja ka dosthunu solikitu kuda iruntha oru nalla aathma kaasu kuduthu kaapathichi.

"விதி என்ற ஆற்றிலே மிதக்கின்ற இலைகள் நாம்
நதி வழி போகின்றோம் எந்த கரை சேர்கின்றோம்"

again semma cute imagination here in these lines..

"வாசனை தீண்டிட நினைக்கிறாய்
அது வசப்பட போவதில்லை
வானுக்கும் பூமிக்கும் என்றுமே
மழை உறவுகள் தீர்வதில்லை"

"Nenjodu kalanthidu" song from Kaadhal konden mathiri starting rhythm irunthalum sriniyoda solid voice along with flute like voice of shreya ghosal takes the song to a different level. Ithoda oru 100 times ketrupen irunthalum thegata matenguthu. Avlo sweet :)

Reality check

Naama vitutu vantha edathula ulagam nikarathilla..how foolish of me to think that things will be the same forever or i can always re visit that happy place i enjoyed. The wisest thing is to make the place, where you stay and live, the happiest place on earth. You can never turn back the clock. I always dreamt that, anytime i can go back to my Utopia and continue from where i stopped. Offlate the realisation has struck and i have come to terms with my present life. Things will never be the same again. Everything has changed forever, whether i like it or not and its up to me accept the fact and start allover again, using all my experience and lessons life has taught me. Guess its not such a bad thing afterall. And funnily this was something i always wished for. Though the timing was bad, now that it has come true, i can either enjoy it and go with the flow or resist it and be sorry. I decide to choose the former now :) Atlast mind is clear :) And here comes the problems :)))

Cute song

First time keat udanaye manasoda otikichi intha song..lovely lyrics...teasingly written..oozing with romance....anyone cud relate to the lyrics..avlo simple and cute :) rombbbba pudichi poachu..nice voice..chaancela..waiting for the picturisation..

அவள் அப்படி ஒன்றும் அழகில்லை
அவளுக்கு யாரும் இணையில்லை
அவள் அப்படி ஒன்றும் கலரில்லை
ஆனால் அது ஒரு குறையில்லை
(அவள்..)

அவள் பெரிதாய் ஒன்றும் படிக்கவில்லை
அவளைப் படித்தேன் முடிக்கவில்லை
அவள் உடுத்தும் உடைகள் பிடிக்கவில்லை
இருந்தும் கவனிக்க மறக்கவில்லை
(அவள்..)

அவள் நாய்க்குட்டி எதுவும் வளர்க்கவில்லை
நான் காவலிருந்தால் தடுக்கவில்லை
அவள் பொம்மைகள் அணைத்து உறங்கவில்லை
நான் பொம்மை போலே பிறக்கவில்லை
அவள் கூந்தல் ஒன்றும் நீளமில்லை
அந்தக்காட்டில் தொலைந்தேன் மீளவில்லை
அவள் கவிரல் மோதிரம் தங்கமில்லை
கைப்பிடித்ததும் ஆசையில் தூங்கவில்லை
அவள் சொந்தமின்றி எதுவுமில்லை
எனக்கு எதுவுமில்லை
(அவள்..)

அவள் பட்டுப்புடவை என்றும் அணிந்ததில்லை
அவள் சுடிதார் போல எதுவும் சிறந்ததில்லை
அவள் திட்டும்போதும் வலிக்கவில்லை
அந்த அக்கரைப்போல வேறு இல்லை
அவள் வாசம் ரோஜா வாசமில்லை
அவள் இல்லாமல் சுவாசமிலை
அவ…
