Shwaas - Marathi movie

Heart melting. You would've heard this phrase repeated for all and sundry to the extent of being abused off its meaning. Watch this movie. You can feel the phrase. I couldnt control my emotions sitting throughout the movie. Every single living being in the movie..oozes with warmth and genuine affection that it makes one feel proud to be human and realise how GOOD it feels to love someone without any expectation and inhibition. There is no villain in the movie and it could almost become an awareness creation ad campaign but for the meager production values. The movie is so simple and pure, with a single line story and shoestring budget. But it is riveting right from the first scene. The characters are all so natural, the situation so obvious and precise, the acting..was it acting?? I thought it was a candid camera on a real life granpa and his grandson. Amazing performances. And lilting background music. With tamil subtitles it feels as if they are mouthing their dialogues in tamil itself. I loved the scene where the mother talks to the granpa over phone enquiring about the kid. The kid butts in asking about the cow and the calf and ...i dont want to spoil the fun. Just watch that scene. Its nothing short of magic. So touching and realistic. And the final scene says it all. I am sure, it wouldnt just be the kid who applauds in the end.

Kicking myself as to how i missed this one for so long. But glad i finally saw it. Konjam..ila..romba overavay pheel panni kooviten nenakren. But again, i've poured in how i felt after watching the movie. May not be everyone's cup of tea.

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…
