WMW - Naan Ee

Intha vaaram Weekend Movie Watchla its "Naan Ee" time :) Oray samayathula tamil, telugu and one more languagela release aagi kalakitrukara movie. The director, Rajamouli, is the hit machine of Andhra. Consecutivea 8 blockbusters he has directed and this one had lot more expectations riding on it. The fact that, Thalai's "Billa-2" got postponed because this one occupied all the theaters speaks for the publicity and hype.

Storywise perusa onumilla. Usual revenge-reincarnation matter thaan. For a change hero takes "E" avatharam in his second innings and villaina samhaaram panra kathai. Nyayapadi intha padathuku hero villain thaan. Right from frame one, Sudeep dominates the movie like anything. Herova vara Naani ku romba kammi screen time. Kedacha gapla Samantha va maanju maanju love pannitu mandaiya poturaar. Samantha....avvvvvvvvvvvvv...veyil kaalathuku etha ice cream sundae. Romba alatikkaama...lighta smile..lighta fear nu...kozhantha ennaamaa act pannuthu. Antha kannalaye kavithai ennamolaam solvangalay..athey athey. Right from her debut movie "Moscowin Kaveri" she has grown looking beautiful with each movie :)

Aprum..padathoda original hero "Ee". Computer graphicsla semmaya velaadirukaanga. Usuala namma oorla CG based moviesla maina sothaparathu depth perception and scalingla. Originalityla focus panren pervazhinu imagela kaatra importancea appearancela vitruvaanga. For example the gorilla in Duet movies logo will look much authentic but it will look bigger than the tree it would be climbing on to. Antha mathiri ilaama..intha padathula..romba menakettu try panni irukaanga. And the screenplay of how the Ee takes revenge with the help of heroine is told semma interestingly. Logiclaam paakama enjoy panna vendia padam.

Another highlight for the movie is the music. WOW. Songs are awesome. Especially the first song sung by Karthik. Usuallavay his voice makes even normal songs sound special. Intha songoda innoru strength Madan Karky oda lyrics. Appakku pillai thappaamal piranthirukaaru. Loved his word play and have always amazed at the ease with which he brings in technical words into tamil and inserts them expertly at the right places. Be it "Kuviyam" in "Ennam Yetho" song from "Ko" or the word love in umpteen different lanugages for "Nanban" or the chinese song sounding like Twinkle twinkle little star in "7aam Arivu" this man has always been upto something. When i heard this song for the first time, what stuck me was the originality of the lyrics and how amazingly it suited the heroines character. She comes as a miniature artist in the movie. Atha base panni "Nun silai seithidum Pon silaiye " nu oru vari varum..and adutha line was even cuter "Pencilai seevidum Pen silaiye". Totally smitten with the song and has been playing non stop on my playlist. Here is the lyrics. Oru kutti poatti. Of the two kavithais given below..which one is more beautiful? one looking out the window or the one below the pic :) heheheee..

Gils verdict : Ee oattathu..intha Ee odum.

Please gils - movie review is fine, but don't quote lyrics of songs. Of all the arts related to Tamil, the one that has plumbed the lowest of lows is lyrics.

I was expecting learned treatise on Samantha vs Andie Macdowell, but .... disappointment .....

Oru padam vittu vekka maateengala... tsk tsk...

I am kinda skeptical about this movie, but since u the saying it is good, might just watch it one of these days.. :-)

But me no understand how the hero becomes the Ee.. computer graphics too mucha? it might seem too fake and i might start picking on that...

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…
