Review time again :)
This time the review is full of all mokkai movies and books. So veridict ippovay sollidren..onnumay therala.
Naduvula konjam pakkatha kaanum -
A movie, that caught fancy right from its title. And songs were pretty neat too. The video of "Hey crazy minnal" sung by Andrea would've had more hits than the movie itself i guess. And she keeps getting prettier with each song and movie!! And with an equally chirpy voice to kill for. Many people who saw the movie, hyped it up about the humour content in it. More than the review, i usually go by the word of mouth review and it was almost unanimous that every one liked it and cheered the comedy. But somehow, i found it to be otherwise. The first half was dragging but considering the second half it felt breezy fast. There were too many repeat scenes and dialogues and more than being funny, the entire first half carried a serious tone to it. May be the director meant it as a spoof?? not sure. The really funny moments began bit late into the second half, from the reception scenes onwards. They were really original and ticklish. Especially the way the hero looks at the heroine and comments on her makeup, repeatedly. And how his friends try to manage it differently each time. While the hero is almost passive in expression, doesnt require any over the top emotion for that matter, the friends compensate for it. Especially the specs guy who is seen throughout in all seriousness. There are some situational comic moments between the other two friends when the senior of them is repeatedly proven wrong each time. But again, too many repetitions. It seems they took the entire story on film and never edited it. Considering that 3 songs from the movie never made it to the screen the length of the movie is perplexing!!! But one thing is sure. Iniamay "Ennachu" nu yaaravathu keta the response is going to be howlarious :D
Nee thaane En Pon Vasantham -
Contrary to the public opinion again, found this movie to be interesting. Have seen only the first half, that too after skipping too many segments. Still, it does strike a chord in some scenes. Especially the school scenes. That set up was way too natural and familiar. One word to describe the movie - Samantha. She looks yummier than in Naan E and entire first hour breezes by just because of her. Have become padutheevira fan of hers :) Special mention to the costumer and hairstylist. Her school getup is perfect and she looks a million bucks :)) Almost reminds me of someone from my own school. Aana chellam..never ever dub in your own voice. Jeeva ku thonda kattikita mathiri iruku voice. All the songs were awesome and though Yuvan's voice is at its irritating best, "Saainthu Saainthu" song rocks. Comedy is so so only. Having been warned by everyone who saw the movie that it was a mokkai, actually had the ulta effect. Though I dint see the full movie, i think i will like this in bits and portions. Strictly for Samantha fans i guess :D
Next one is a book review, which again turned out to be a dud. A maste dud at that.
Cure by Robin Cook -
Had always been a big fan of Robin cook. Used to be amazed by the way he entwines medical terms and diseases with mysteries, usually the mafia. But soon the themese became repetitive and lost sting. When i saw this book, hardbound at that, was immediately tempted to buy. It turned out to be the worst of the lot. Its around 400 pages in size and the story never takes off till the 350th page. Within next 50 pages, there is a kidnapping, recovery , link between the first 300 pages and the investigation, arrests and a SUBAM ending as well. Marana mokka. Ithuku ivlo buildupa nu veruthu poachu. Cook turned up half baked this time.
Currently reading - Story of Nagas, which is turning up to be a spoiler compared to first part , Immortals of Meluha. Got some more books to read, that are in pipeline. Mothama serthu will post another review :))
Innum 4 daysla world azhiyutha illaya therila, but i've planned my longest ever travel trip. Hope it works out :))
