Wish list 2014

If wishes were horses...well I would've lot of stable full of horses. That many wishes I got.

First in the list is AAP. ada..aappu ileengo..Aam admy party. The word aadmi has been purpose fully misspelt. I am a staunch believer that India would be better served only under dictatorship. And that should be me is an open hidden agenda:D:D We need to be ruled. Sorry. One correction. We yearn to be ruled. We need someone to spell out things for us. We need heroes to protect us from disease to demons. We always look up for some messiah and have hopelessly high expectations on them. We forget and forgive the scoundrel leaders and would give up on them and their misdeeds quicker than the number of chances that we give for scrupulously clean common people. Our aam aadmis are always "adimai"s and wouldnt allow the yoke to be lifted off them. And this is where AAP's role is going to face its biggest challenge. More than Congress and BJP trying to topple it, its detractors knew that it would collapse on the weight of its own expectations. Suddenly every single citizen of Delhi has become an auditor of the government and forgotten are the days when their "elected representatives" who were unreachable. Every single move of AAP and its members are under scrutiny and given the breed of cynicists that we are, people are just waiting for that "I-know-that-they-will-fail" moment. It makes the job of a person, hoping against hope that he would be as good as he claims to be, to deliver on his promises. If AAP fails that would be the last straw. If AAP wins it would be the real dawn. I don't need to wait till December. Given the rate at which people and opposition are bullying, either AAP will manage to succeed on its promises only to irk erstwhile incumbent, who would topple the government when it becomes too hot to handle or it would go the way of all other "illustrious" predecessors before it. Time will tell for sure. And its running fast.

Romance in movies is second on my list. I sincerely, seriously, furiously with religious fervour hope and demand that, there shouldn't be any more romantic comedies for tamil cinema for next 2 years. Government should infact declare tax breaks for directors who could conjure any other genre other than this. There should also be a ban (tax break sop sounds a juicier carrot) on movies which dwelve on or anywhere near TASMAC, even for a reference. I am sick and tired of all those crap that has been raking in the moolah at BO movie after movie. How much ever the critics pan it, even those crappiest of lot continues to rule BO for reason best known to the movie watching public. I really want to see some interesting themes and genres being tried and hopefully 2014 should set the tone.

If I am a Charles Dickens book, I would be "Great expectations". I am planning on major personality changes for this year. And I hope 2014 gives me opportunities towards that goal :)

Wishing you all wonderful times ahead :)

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.
