The question - part 9


Looking at his condition, Priya picks up Ram's phone and decides to inform his home. Deciding against scaring his parents, she drops that idea. Suddenly the phone vibrates with call from Anil. Thanking her stars, she picks the call and informs him of the situation. Anil rushes to the clinic.

@the Clinic:

"Romba thanks Priya. When you picked the call instead of Ram, naan enalamo nenachuten one nimit"

"Avlo tension pannitena..sorrynga..didn't knew you were that close with him"

"Cha cha..tension ila Priya..I thought ...seri vidunga.. dei Ram..are you ok now"

Half conscious and reeling under the effects of sedatives, Ram blurts something.

"Ivan saatharanama pesinalay puriyathu ...ipo idhu enna sonnar"

"Slight concussion..mathabadi nothing to worry...ok Anil..appo neenga paathukareengala..I will leave..already late aaidichi"

"Neenga enga ponum sollunga..will drop you after we deposit this guy in his home...idhuku mela cab kedaikrathu kashtam..double rate poduvanga even if they accept the request"

Priya agrees and settle in the back seat with Ram who suddenly wakes up from his stupor.

"Ennnnaaa traffic..vandilam nagarutha illa park pannitu driverlam asanthu thoongitaangala..."

"What to do ...naatula car jaasthi aadithu..are you alright now" asked Anil

"Aaamanga saar  ..Appuchi  Dacalti nu bike velayae car vida jaasthiya irukarapo..atha vida kammi velaikku rendu tyre extravoda varuthaynu kanda naayum car vaangiduthu....intha car eppo vaanguneenga?"

"dei..unakku lift kuduthen paaru enna solanum..athenna saar nu solraan..oru vela innum mabbu pogaliyo" ran in Anil's mind voice. Priya unable to control her giggles watches outside the window.

Both reach Ram's home. After hearing the incident, his mom scolds Ram for often eating out and falling sick, this time literally.

"Aairam thaan irunthaalum namma oor saapaadu mathiri varaathu. Per vaikrathulenthu evlo mangalagarama saambar, rasam, moar, saadhamnu saathveegama vachirukanga. Vellakaaran saapatu periyum paaru..pisaasu pichakarannu"

"Athu beggar illa mummy burger.." corrects Ram which is frowned upon by his mom.

"Romba thanks ma..un per enna sonna"


"Eeshvaro rakshathu...Deivathinde thuthi.." prays Anil

"Yaaruku thithi?" asks Priya

"Adhu thuthi..thithi illa..thuthi naa paadal..thithi na padaiyal..its getting too technical you know..naanay theliva irukenn..unakenna acchu" queries Ram

"enna ezhavo..kadavulay nee thaan enna kaapathanum" grumbles Priya

"Exactly" and Ram falls down on the couch in full sleep mode.

"Seringamma appo naanga kelambrom..Priyava veetla drop pannitu naan poganum"

"Oru nimisham irumma..vellikezhamaiya paathu veetuku first time vanthiruka..intha kumkumam vachukko. Verum nethiya irukku paaru"

"Aaha..paiyan workout panrathukulla amma set aaiduvanga polarukkay...machi..macham da unakku" nu mind voicela pesikitaan Anil.

On the way back to her home, "Ram amma chancel..semma sweet and veguli la" said Priya

"Aaamam..avanga romba nallavanga..Ram ku set aagalinathum antha jaadhagatha Maheshuku kuduthu ipo avanga life set panni vachirukaanganna parungalen"


Antha "ohh" la pala vishayangala Priyakku clear aanathu Anil understood.

"Aaama ...naan unga call pick pannapo edho nenachen soneengalay..ennadhu?"

"Adhuva..hmm...err..Ram mimicry panraano nenachen.."

"Ungaluku poi sollavay varaleenga...freeya vidunga"

"Seri..kochikaama thittama iruntha solren"

"Avlolam kashtapadalam venaam"

"Aiyo..amma thaaye paradevatha..unna kattikitu Ram enna paadu pada poraano"


"Jothika mathiri edhuku ivlo don't know that he likes you?"

"Hello..idhelaam over..unga friendku apdi edachum idea iruntha..let him decide and talk for himself..sorrynga..thappa nenachukatheenga..and thanks for the lift back ..."

Looking at her going to her hostel Anil was wondering "Sothapitomo?"

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…
