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.
