Hmm...aprumm? :)

"Hmm..aprum? vera enna matter?" Usuala this question is the favourite icebreaker topic for any idle chit chat or conversation to begin. If used once, it would very well serve its purpose as the initiator but i've come across scores of people who almost use it as a delimiter. Every single pause would be filled with it. Even if you reply in the negative saying "onnumila..usual life" then also it wouldnt subside. CBI CIA visaaranaila kooda avlo thadava thuruvi thuruvi kelvi kekka maataanga. Adhuvum if the person happens to be someone who contacts you after a long gap..sethaanga. Makkalay...ennadaa ivan ipdi solraan..oruthan manushana mathichi phone panni pesa vantha ivan ivlo scene podraanaynu nenachukaatheenga. Intha feedbacklaam enaku vantha feedback. Naan entha alavuku mokka podrengaratha..kodumai thaangaama surrender aana oru victim sonna vaira varigal thaan mela sonnapattavai :D Me one self confessed conversation moron. I do have a problem in spacing my speaking vs hearing parts. Either vaaya mooditu kaetukitay irupen..or pesarathula kaathula ratham vara alavuku mokkai :) And kodumai is..i am absolutely aware of it while conversing !! Thats a real pain if you can understand what i am saying here. Speech silver .silence golden. Elaam ok..Aana..art of carrying out a good conversation is platinum cum diamond mix. Romba romba kushtam. As much as possible i try to move the chat to my comfort zone - the written format rather than verbal. Saatharanamaa orutharoda oruthar sagajama pesikarathu avlo kashtama? over scena irukaynu yosikareengala...hmm. its something which i am afflicted with right from my school days. I have always had fear of sounding stupid and was never a confident speaker as such. Blogla mattum apidi ennamo athi methavi mathiriyaakumnu solreengala..athelaam kandukapdaathu :D The kind of career line i am in currently it requires me to have a good command over my words verbal or written. And unable to carry out a good conversation is a big handicap. Schooldaysla suthama vaaya thirakaatha paiyanlenthu..i went overboard into a thona thonappu case :) I bombard people with questions to such an extent that it has become my identity. Ivan kitta maatina kelvi keattay konnuruvaannu paathalay odiruvanga :D In a way it has acted as adeterrent against my lack of skill. Okay. Ethuku ivlo bittunu paakareengala..matter oru line silpaansikabilpaansi matter thaanga. Me have joined one speech club in aapice :) Athula every week we have to give prepared speech. Athula competitionlaam vera undaam. Schooldaysla sernthu senjirukara velailaam ipo me the doings and enjoyings too. First day self introduction topicla pesinathukaga oru Gel pen prize kuduthaanga :) I was so happy. Veetla vanthu amma kitta kaatitu inniki speechku prize kuduthaangamma sonnapo felt as if i went back to my schooldays. I've missed many things in my school life without even realizing their absence. Onnu onna ipo compensating for them :)

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.
