Unda Mayakkam

Diwali @ foriegn desam apdina intha potluck, games, familya settle aagiruntha snacks and sweet distribution to all apartment veedu and bachelorsna oc saapaadu for couple of days. Guess this is the norm in most of the places. For this diwali, it was for the very first time, spent it with such a huge gumbal. Ithuvaraikkum entha oorla irunthaalum will get back to Chennai for festivals. This time that wasnt possible. But this experience was very nice too. Here they had arranged for potluck with some 20 plus families, with each one preparing a dish. Around 40 people had been invited. And i was made incharge for the most important and critical and essential and mandatory item, without which potluck wouldnt have been possible. Vera entha dish sample panna kedaikutho illayo ennoda item ilaama ethuvumay not possible and each one had to have one of it alteast. Avlo criticalana mukkiyamaana antha matter ennagareengala..athaanga Plate. Aairam thaan vagai vagaiya saapaadu pannalum..plate illama sapda mudiyuma. Itha sonna udhaika varaanga. Enna kodumai ithu :((
The family at whose apartment we all gathered had arranged for kutti games also. Etho mini kalyana saapadu mathiri irunthichi. Avlo variety. Nalla kattu kattunu kattitu ellarum kelambinaprum kadisia kelambrathula innoru vasathi irukku. Especially if you are single. Micham meethi ellam pack panni parcel kuduthiruvanga. Here also, chamatha enga roomkaga oru peria packet was ready. Pora kuraikku oru anbu ullam, wheat halwa senju, enakaga speciala oru packet kuduthu vittanga. Avvvvvvvvv...avanga anbu alwava vida sweet. Apruma diwaliku release aana THUPPAKI padam paaka motha gumbalum went. Paathi theater enga gumbal thaan. It was neither a typical Vijay movie, with no punch dialogues or mass kuthu songs, nor a Murugadoss movie, with hardly any of his signature touches, nor was Kajal Agarwal good looking in that, semmaya weight potu pannikutty mathiri iruntha and comedy was pathetic and songs marana mokka except for Google Google. Choregraphyum padu sumaar. Only saving grace being the mind game sequences between hero and villain. Konjam logica and thrillinga irunthichi. Padam poora oray whistle and comments and cat calls. When we had went for SKYFALL, the vellakaara ammani who was sitting next to some of the ladies in the group, sushed them and scolded them for making non stop comments about James Bond. Intha vaati no such prachanai. Highlight was, in the movie there is a scene when Kajal Agarwal tries to kiss Vijay. One of my colleagues kid, hardly 5 years old was sitting at the edge of his seat watching the scene with rapt attention. We all were watching the keenness with which the kid was following the scene with so much "involvement". My colleague sighed and said ," Ivana inimay padam paaka kootikitu vantha Thavani kanavugal Bagyaraj mathiri chillarai kaasu kaila eduthu vachuka vendi thaan". Those who've seen the movie, will know which scene he was referring too :D Semma fun it was.

Ivvaaraaga diwali celebrations mudinji adutha naal officeku kelambara mathiri kodumai irukay :( romba kushtam. Previous day panna comedies pathi arattai adichay paathi naal odi poachu. Mokka potukitu irukkum boathu suddenly one reminder popped up. There was a training scheduled for 12.30 PM and it was about to being in 5 minutes. Adichi pudichi login pannaparum thaan realised, athu naan present panna vendia session!! Enna topicnay maranthu poachu :D One by One makkal started joining the call. Enna panrathu theriama oruthar oruthar kittayum Happy diwali and how their day went, ithay kaettay oru pathu nimisham thallitu, antha gapla brushed up what i needed to talk about :D pakkathula ukkanthiruntha colleagueslam semma ragalai. Call mutela poatutu galatta pannitrunthaanga. Funny thing was, session mudinjathum, itha mathiri oru session en vaazhkkaila attend pannathilla..enga arivu kanna thoranthiteengannu oray aaravaara comments.

That's the way to celebrate Diwali, but in a potluck you can't get the plates. You should have made some involved Diwali sweets and the precious twenty something would have batted eyelids at you .., !

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…
