I the back...again ;)

Like an out of form cricketer being given innumerable chances to get into the Indian cricket team (entha cricketer pathi pesarennulam kekkapdaathu..there are so many of them like this), Chennai takes me back again for one more time.

Vanthu oru vaaram aachu. One advantage of being a night owl is, epdiyum no thookams..so intha jetlaglam oray naalula sari aaidichi. Veetla iruntha thookam varala but office pona kannu sokkuthu. Oru vela IT officelaam government office stylela work panrathunaala irukumo??!! Naama thaan punctual paranthaamannu paatha, en ex-team makkal enakku melanu prove panitaanga. I went to opice around 2. Appo thaan paathi team coming to opice itself!! Lean periodnu solraanga aana makkalaam snacks saaptu semma rounda irukaanga :D

Women's dayku post podalaya..status update pannia...atleast naalu ponnuku wish panni msg anupinianu oray the imsais. Ada pongappa. Newspaperla kashimir kundu vedippu epdi pulichi pona newsa aadicho athey mathiri rape news agitu varuthu. Bus rape..auto rape..veetla infants raped..autistic child rape nu oru ponnu vidaama thedichi pudichi rape panitrukaanga!! Hindusthaan lenthu Rapeisthana maaritu varuthu..intha timela womens day celebrate panrom sollitu already safea irukara ponnungaluku wish panni maska adikarathu avasiyama thonuthu. I fear for the safety of my friends and folks. All of a sudden aan makkal ivlo veri pudichi alaiyaraangala..illa..ithelaam ipo thaan newsa varutha therila. As I was preparing to leave I got a India travel advisory from my own aapeece. Be aware of rapists, pick pockets, malaria, dengue and kidnappers nu potu irunthichi. Was feeling very bad. And paavam antha Nirbhaya ponnu. The news about her tragedy started as bus rape victim..grew as Delhi gang rape and got blown up as India gang rape. When we were watching tv on office cafeteria the news came up and all the vellakaarans were watching us for our reaction. Shameful is mildly putting it.

Aprum, my usual airport escapades. Airport and gils iruntha kodumai illama irukuma. This time surprisingly it was relatively trouble free, except for the first hiccough. As I was clearing security at charlotte airport, I came out of the clearance and was collecting my things. I called up my friends who had came to send me off and went to collect my boarding pass. It was a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggg corridor. When I reached the counter, a vellakaaran came rushing ahead of me, apologised and barged in to collect his pass. Appo thaan I realised, I had left my cabin baggage at the security clearance itself. Unclaimed bag...running Asian..sweating like anything...suthi vara security folks. Imagine the situation. En nalla neram...before it could raise any suspicion, I took the bag and escaped from there. Athenna therila..airportukum gilskum vaasthu sari ila nenaikren. Any parigaaram palagaaram...please ping me.

Ippothaikku attendance putting..appalika comings. Take care makkalay :)

You are an unique piece Gils- you can make tragedies with cooking, airport, sleeping (waking up at odd hours), partying and what not- no matter where and when. Mudiyyyala :D

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…
