Intha vaaram muzhichikitruntha timey romba kammi..so athunala neria padam paaka mudila :( Had a bunch of movies to watch..but no time :(
First paatha padam...P.S I Love you. Rommmmmmmmmba naaala pending. Atlast managed to see it. Intha padatha pathi all my friends where raving about so much that apdi enna thaan irukungara curiosityla i started reading the book first. Not sure which one came first, but somehow i felt the book was more stronger in emotions than the movie. The heroine is more sad, more bubbly, more lonely, more enthusiastic in the book than compared to the movie. How much ever i love Hillary Swank, i still would bet Meg Ryan would've done wonders to this character. I felt it was tailor made for her.
Coming to the story. A cute pair of hubby (Gerald "leonoidas" Butler of "300" fame) and wife(Hillary "Million$baby" Swank)- Who fight a lot and love each other a lot more. Nadichavanga perlaam podrathukulaye hubby dies. Wife is depressed and almost goes crazy with loneliness. Suddenly she starts receiving letters from her dead husband. Aavi ulagathulenthu ilaa..that guy apparently was aware that he was going to die and had written some "post dated" letters..each one containing some message/task for the wife and all of them end with the wordings "P.S I Love You". The tasks takes her through all the places which she enjoyed with him and she relives those happy thoughts. Mean time there is a romantic angle in the form of a long time friend. At one point (read climax) the letters dry out and the last one advices her to carry on with her life. What she does forms the ending.
Gils review: Beautiful concept and mushy romantic. Its been quite a while since i saw a more romantic movie than this. Neria ponnunga like Gerald Butler. No wonder why :) His role is very limited in the movie but still, his charisma hangs throughout the movie as if his ghost is always around. I love the scene where they meet first. A dog starts to bark at Swank and what follows might be right out of any hindi or tamil movie..but here it looks so genuine :) verrrrry kuuuuteee.. Hillary Swank looks less sad..less happy..less cherubic..almost as if she has underplayed that character. Still Swank being Swank..manages to scrape through. Overall a nice feel good movie and if u r sucker for rom coms..dont miss it.
P.S : I loved it :)
Next movie is a bit old one and quite new at the same time - A Wednesday :) Ithana naala hard diskla irunthichi. Almost everyone who had seen the movie urged me to watch it. But somehow was not in mood. Now that Kamal has taken up that role it intrigued me to see ..apdi enna thaan iruku intha padathulanu. I couldnt go for the tamil version. So settled for the original one which they showed in BINDAAS tv yesterday. Its the smallest decent hindi movie i've ever seen - under 2 hrs discounting the ad breaks. I think even shooting the movie wud've got over within a month :) Naserrudin shah speaks for 30 mins inthe movie and same is shared by Anupam kher. Rest of them go through their motions very well. It has very less violence..no songs..no heroine..and no out of the world graphics. Yet its riveting. Saadhu mirandaal enna agumngaratha nacchunu solirukanga. All credit to the director and screenplay writer. Neria logic loop holes. Still the movie makes compelling watch.
Gils review: A wednesday - Movie for all days. Must watch.
I started reading "Chromosome 6" by Robin Cook. But en birend gave me my best gift so far :) DAN BROWN's latest novel "LOST SYMBOL" :) My fav dream as a kid was chocolate maram with icecream hanging on its branches...this one beats them all. Over excited about the book. Kathai epdirukumnu therila..seekrama padichitu solren :)
Wanted to see "Ugly truth". But the more Ugly truth of office on monday (SOB SOB) made me shutdown the pc :( Catch u all next with more reviews :)
