Akkadaanu naanga udai poatta..

Than muyarchiyil satrum manam maaratha Vikramaathithan mathiri Gils enters office sharp at 10.30 for 9.30 shift. Damager looks at Gils and sighs (the exhaust air includes wildest of swear words which cant even be represented by all the wild characters in keyboard and finally ends with "ivan ethana thadava sonalum timeku varamaataan so tholayuthu").

"Gils..inniki enna day?"

"Today aapicer"

"Ketrukavay koodathu..adaii daii daii...inniki enna daaayyyy"

Damagera kaalangaathala azha uda venaam solitu "Monday aapicer"

"Monday anniki potukitu vara dressa ithu? Saaku mootaiya pirichi vitta mathiri oru pant. Chessboardla rangoli veladina mathiri oru sattai. Unnalaam roadla naai thoratharathaalaa thaan nee intha timekaachum office vara nenakren"

"Aapicer..intha dressku enna kurachal aapicer"

"Ellaamay jasthi..arent u aware of dress code?"

"Kodu poata dress neria iruku aapicer..atha solreengala"

"Adi vaanga pora maganay"

"No kovams aapicer. Less tensun more work. More work less tensun"

"HR kannula sikkara anniki irukudi unaku"

"Aapicer nangalaam Yoooooth aapicer. Iskooloda intha uniform podra kodumailaam over nu nenacha..inum ipdi dress codunu penal code poata epdi aapicer"

"Client vantha enna nenapaan"

"Dress nallarukay Indian traditional costumenu neanpaan"

"Velayadatha gils. Be serious. Naalilenthu ozhunga formalsla varalainaaa..."

"Veetuku anupiduveengala aaapicer..haiaaa"

"Waitees...Loss of pay poatu veetuku anupiduven"

"Aiayago..enna kodumai...seri..try panren"

Nextday @ opice:

Damager gives that same villain look seein gils entering opice at 10.45.

"Saaree aapicer. Neenga sonna mathiri costume theda konjam time aidichi"

"Ithu thaan unga oorla formalsa?"

"Enna aapicer.."neer thaan jackson duraia" rangeku kekareenga. Ithu formals ilama ennathu?"

"Nike la epo formals poda arambichaanga"

"Neenga sattai pantku thana soneenga..shoeku solalaye nethu..."

"Karumam..poi tholai.."



"Y tension aapicer"

"Enna kolam ithu"

"Opicer..neenga sollamaye naan oru vela panitu vanthiruken. Tie poatukitu vanthiruken parunga. Paaratuveenga paatha..thitreengalay"

"Tie ya thupatta mathiri poatu why maanatha vangara"

"Katta therilaye opicer..athaan differenta try panen"

"Kitta vaa..naan oradiya iruki thallidren..epovum vara mathiriye vanthu thola..maanam poguthu unnala"

"Thank you opicer"

Gils goes away humming "Vetri meethu vetri vanthu ennai serummmm"

I hate this concept of dress code. Somehow being punctual and coming in formals are two things which can never be programmed into me. And more the insistance on dress code more creative my dressing sense becomes :D Finala things are back to normal now :D

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…
