Meet the parents - 1

"Hey Gils..can u take care of this task for me. Got a personal work..So i am taking off for the day"
"what happened boss..why are u looking so tensed?"
"Got a call from my son's school. His principal wants to meet me"
"Huh...so why are YOU tensed. Should be your kid who should be doing ur role"
"You dunno man..in their school..they are very strict. And my kid..i am sure he wud've flunked every exam. I doubt whether he wud've written anything in the exam"
"It comes with the genes sire. Like Father Like Son ilaya"
"vilayadatha gils..i am really worried"

After lot of Pep talk and mokkai puttings..the anxious dad went to school. I asked another colleague which school that kid was studying. The reply was "ABC Primary School". First i thought i heard it wrong and then asked which class was the kid to confirm it. He replied LKG. I was like !!!@#@#@$#$%#%$. All this fuss for an LKG kid. Was about to call the guy when my phone rang. All i could hear was "Wooohoooo" followed by wild cacophony of noises. Even when India won the World cup i hadnt heard such a whoop of joy. All i could hear amidst those noise was "Mera beta pass ho gaya"

Parents these days!!!!!

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.
