Jillunu oru kaathal kathai :) - 6

Story so far
"Have you ever fell in Love? Yaar kittayachum express pannirukkia?" asked Priya
Ram stood silent for a second.
"Ennada Ivlo Opena irukaalaynu paakaria? illa..nalla vela ivala naama kalyanam pannikalanu santhoshapadria?" asked Priya with a smile.
"If i say "for both" will you feel bad?" replied Ram with a smirk.
"Adi pinniduven. I know i am bit of a hmm..different and forthright. Athukaga atha mathavana kurai solla vida maaten. Seri..matteruku vaa..kaetta kelvikku badil sollu"
"All depends on why you want to know?"
"So that it will ease my conscious. You asked me why our marriage proposal got dropped right? My parents were adament on finalising it. Porakuraiku unga veetlenthum okay vera sollirunthaangala..and unkitta apdi enna note panni tholaichaanga therila..they were very impressed with you too. But..Naan thaan..Naan thaan venaam sonnen"
Ram stood in silence.
"Ennada..venaamnu sonnava ippo ivlo friendlya vanthu avalay pesaraalaynu paakaria. I thought you deserved to know the reason and dont know why...for some reason..felt i would feel better if i told you this."
" yaaraiyachum love pannennu would feel your decision was justified? enna loosuthanama iruku ithu"
"Sorry Ram. I know i sound..and i AM.. selfish. But vera vazhi therila enakku. I was in love with someone. Atleast i thought so at that time..stupid story..want to kick myself..uhhhh "
"oh..." There was an awkward silence.
"Just oh..!! enna aaluppa nee. Either blow off in anger or show some curiosity. Ipdi rendumillaama enna oru reaction ithu. Romba decent person mathiri scene podra"
"Adipaavi..scene podrena!! Honestly i've no idea what to tell. Its not everyday a girl comes and discloses her personal life..more so her love life..even more rare when that girl happens to be the one who ditched you"
"hahahaa..somehow expected you to react like this. So en profiling of you is bit more accurate then"
"Hey..un kathaikku vaa..enna sight adikaratha vidu"
"haiioodaaa..nenappu thaan"
"Ahem...hope i am not disturbing you two" said Anil..butting into the conversation at exactly the wrong moment. Priya stood for a moment, smiled at Anil and excused herself.
"Nandhi....Karadi.... and Nee. Enna relationnu kandupudichukka"
"Sorry machaan..naanum evlovo try panni paathen. Angenthu saria ottu kekka maatenguthu. Ithuku mela closea vantha epdiyum terinjidum sollitu thaan nerlaye vanten. Party mudinji plate clean panni kooda vachitanga. Neenga rendum perum kadalai poatu mudicha paada therilaye. Apdi enna thaanda pesitruntheenga?"
Ram smilingly threw a punch at Anil's tummy and walked away.
"Adapaavi..sirikaraanay!!! Appo confirmedu..dai..machaan..wait panraa. Enna nadakkuthu inga"

Ram does his cardio with his usual systematic routine. Anil, bored with showing off his latest pair of NIKE to any gal who passed by, was posing in front of mirror.
"Machaan..6 packsla..lighta oray oru pack mattum form aagirukula"
"Dei athuku peru thaanda thoppai..ladieslaam arasa maratha suthitu adi vayitha thottu paathukara mathiri..anju nimisham tread milla ninnutu absa thottu paathukariye..itheelaam unakay overa therila"
"Dei..Arnold schwarzenegger aagareno ilayo..atleast oru Anil Sivajinagara aachum aagi kaatren. Ithu intha family pack mela promise" nu thoppai mela kai vachu sathiyam seithaan Anil.
"Unna mathiri naalu peru iruntha oorla irukara gymelaam oothi mooda vendi thaan"
"Kanna..en kathai irukatum. Un matteruku vaa. Whats going on"
"Enna whats going on?"
"Dei..Whats going on between you and Priya"
"Enna you and Priya"
"Machi..dumbellala adichay konnuruven..intha mokkai romba pazhasu"
" tension. I've told you before right..antha ponnu enaku erkanavay theriyumnu..ponnu paaka poirunthen..aana allaince cancellednulaam sonnenla..atha pathi thaan pesitrunthom"
"ooooh...adipaavi..first venaam sollitu ipo okvaama"
"Ila machi..she was in love with someone then it seems.."
"huh..appo yeraatha busukkaadaa athana nerama ticket vaangitruntha? aana two look a perfect coupleda..the way you were enjoying each others company was talk of the party. Literalla naanga iruntha nenappay illaama apdi pesitruntheenga rendu perum. Honesta sollu..unakku avala pudikala?"
"Doesnt matterda"
"Ipdiye IDHAYAM Murali mathiriye thiringada elaarum. Ungalukellaam aapu thaan" endru pesikitay parking lot vanthargal iruvarum.
"Yaaruku Aappu? Enna matter?" It was Priya who was standing near her car.
"Huh..athuava..Hindila Aap na 'ungal'uku nu arthamnu sollitrunthen..bye Priya..bye Ram" ena escape aanaan Anil.
"Hey..neeyum gym variya.."
"En ponnungallaam gym varakoodaatha?"
"shabbaa...weekend enna plan?"
"Vetti thaan..nee?"
"Konjam office work iruku..atha veetlenthu panalaamnu iruken"
"Officelaye vetti thaan..atha veetlayum carry pannrathuku ivlo bitta"
"Hahahaa...catch you later..bye Priya"
She stood smiling watching him leave.

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…
