Return of Kedi

ok..before moving any further..K..E..D..I is pronounced as "kay dai" as in Jedi (Star wars). Thappa padichitu correcta artham pannikapdaathu..okva :) I may not carry a light sabre..but me heavy and sober. Rombaaaa naala intha pakkam etti paakalaya...oray ottadaiyum thoosiyuma senthudichi...mindla i mean :)

Diwali anniki "Ganga Snaanam aachaa"nu kekara mathiri..."Endhiran ticket book panniyaacha" nu ooray allolagallola patukitu kedaku. "Engengu kaaninum sakthiyada"nu Bharathidasan paadina mathiri..enga paathalum Endhiran. Trailor releasekey oora rendu aakitaanga. Sun pics mite've pumped in 100 plus crores for making the movie. But i think they wud've put in an equal amount on promoting the movie too. Yesterday went to Albert theater with friend, who by the way happens to be a Rajini fan(atic). Thursday night, zeroth day zeroth show, movie ticket rate was 1500 rupees!!! and it was sold out already!!!!! Just to catch a glimpse of that 2 mins trailor, he had seen most of the mokka movies playing. This would be another first in movie advertising i guess. Theater owners are wooing people with ads that, they are showing Enthiran trailors in their theaters!!! Aurora theater in Matunga, Mumbai is getting renovated just for the sake of this movie, which happens to be the last movie to be shown there as its getting demolished to make way for a mall soon. Still the owner is spending so much, for he himself is a rajini fan it seems. When contacted that guy has said, "Anything for thalaivar".

I think, the curious case of Rajinikanth would be something that would make an intriguing research topic, if not already taken. Whether he comes in jeans n tees, or plain dhothi kurta, sports a mush or clean shaven, wears paratta thalai hair style or bald..this is one guy who is loved by one and all irrespective of his looks, even though his USP was his supposedly style quotient. What makes him tick is something, if can be bottled and sold, would rake in zillions. Still there is one remarkable quality of him which is for everyone to see and pursue too - his humility. It borders on being fake!!! How can a person, who with a mere wave of his hand can send thousands into raptures be so humble is again something which might make a good case study :) Either he is too good an actor offscreen atleast or an amazing person worth following. Whatever the case is, Endhiran is all set to become the "Avatar" of Tamil cinema for sure and probably of Indian cinema too, provided it has a decent storyline. Like all gullible movie freaks..me too awaiting the darshan. This time next week will tell, if its Enthi"run" ning or Enthi"ran". Goodluck to the movie, for the sake of the intriguing big man.

Yeah...thats what even I was wondering...how much marketing and advertisements for trailors and advance booking ???? My God, just thot it was too much...But that has always been the case with any Rajini movie ....everything is too much...

But as u said, theres something which makes this guy tick...I am a fan of Rajini, esp becos I hate Kamalhasan's over-acting looks...and I love the entertainment assured in Rajini's movies.

While Rajini's heroines have progressed into character roles or mother roles, he seems to be the evergreen superstar...LOL....

Enthi"run" ???? Lets see....It'll make money in the first week itself...all over the world. Thats my guess... :)

Chennai-28 part 2- boys are back

The best thing about the first part of the movie, Chennai-28, that came like a decade back was its originality. The pin code had a role to play and was right in the scheme of things which made the movie a hit. It was a nostalgic walk through for people like me who grew up near that area and all those cricket grounds and lanes and streets had ready recall value. Bonus was the simple story with tongue in cheek one liners and the climax twist that was a roftl howler on the team. Even the songs were memorable and everything clicked well in first part. Very rarely do we get sequels which are a literal continuation with almost the same cast playing their age per the story. A big kudos to the director for the setup. Nothing seems artificial and he has played to the strength of the story pretty well. The cricket crazy boys in first part have all become adults, with none, but for one, are bachelor. They’ve their daily routine life, which other than many things, is totally devoid of playing cri…

La la land

The whole issue of mini-mum usurping the throne is heading towards Stockholm syndrome of a climax. All that is required is for her to appear before mike in a publicized meet and cry a few tears on how people are tarnishing and passing cheap comments on her and blocking her opportunity just because she was an assistant to the late supremo. Social media is abuzz with meme’s of how the ex-servant maid is now going to be the next ruler of the state and are, as usual, over the top in decrying her and her intentions. Some of the comments and memes may straight away invite defamation cases and are out right condemnable even if true. What such people miss out is that, though their intention of stopping a corrupt person to come to power may be justified, their means are not. Not a single meme or post talks about how corrupt she is and what are the charges against her and no one is questioning her source for creating such a vast fortune when her original and only known occupation had always bee…

Remo - Movie review

Much ado about Remo could very well be an apt title for this post. Siva Karthikeyan has reinvented the tried and tested success formula of wastrel hero winning laddu heroine, patented by Dhanush and Vijay and Ajith and who-is-who in the movie industry. At some point of time in their career, before their image started deciding scripts for them, all mass heroes have been victim of picking scripts that were bordering on female harassment to abuse, when the same scenario if applied to the villain would lead to fatal consequences for him what might earn catcalls and whistles and even duet for the hero, mocking the heroine. And all said and done, if she, sanely, decides to reject the advances of the hero, there would be even more bashing bhashans on how selfish womenfolk are as compared to how selfless and pure the guys who woo are, who are in fact wastrels as pronounced by all and sundry, right from their own parents to peers to people of their parish.

Rajini successfully tapped the male e…
