Endhiran - review

Kanden Enthiranai :) After almost a month since its been released, atlast managed to see the movie. The most awaited movie of the year become the most waited movie for me :) still no regrets. Had i seen it riding the hype wave, maybe i might have felt euphoric (another way of getting over the "iam-conned-lemme-grin-and-bear-it" feeling). Anyways, for the uninitiated (still biding their time to watch it) its not your typical Rajini movie. At the same time, to say that, had any one else, other than the big man, had donned the role, it wouldnt have been as effective, would be the understatement of the decade. I dont remember if Rajini had done a triple role before. Quite a few double acts for sure. But in this one, he really does manages to pull it off with elan. Each role, interstingly, well distinguished from other. Probably, that shows the amount of time Shankar must've had in shaping up the characters. He claims, he had this in cans for almost a decade now. And the effor

Sound of Love

A master asked his disciples: ‘Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?’ the disciples thought for a while, and one of them said ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.’ ‘But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you? ‘Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?’ The disciples gave him some other answers but none satisfied the master. Finally he explained: ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.’ Then the master asked: ‘What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small…’ And he finally said: ‘When they love each other even more, what ha

Open up

Ever since i saw the ad for the first time..have been a big fan of this Nescafe song. Its a real peppy one and got nice tune to it too. Here goes the lyrics :) You can be rich, with no money to spend. You can do everything, when you understand. You can be mother, when your are man. Open up, you know that you can. Open you eyes, open your mind, open your thoughts. Don't stay behind. Open up, open up The key is inside you, to open your mind. You know what is out there, your heartcan't be blind. Open your eyes and open your mind. Open your thoughts, don't stay behind. Open you eyes, open your mind, open your thoughts. Don't stay behind. Open up, open up You raise all the borders, and start in your head. Open your mind, to thoughts ? Open your eyes and open your mind. Open your thoughts and don't stay behind. Open you eyes, open your mind, open your thoughts. Don't stay behind. Open up, open up.

Ipidyum irukumo?

It was that time of the year..when all of a sudden Lord Hanuman woke up to find Lord Muruga and his consort Valli next to him. He was perplexed and asked " come you are here?" "I was waiting for you to wake to up to ask the same question..look there" What he saw was even more shocking. Lord Vishnu in his Varaha Avatar form was seen talking with one rolly polly person with a bald head. Seeing the shocked look on Hanuman's face, Lord Vishnu smiled at him and said "Why blood..Same blood here too. By the Mr.Laughing Buddha" Hearing some commotion near by everyone turned to note something even stranger. Lord Ganesha was seen in a heated argument with another rolly polly guy. When enquired, that rolly polly guy said, "Aiya..I am a Chettiyaar. I had kept a food stall and had asked my wife to take care of it while i was sleeping. I dont know where she went and when i wake up i saw Lord Ganesha eating all the stuff from my stall. He is n

Poi bus karo :)

If chitraguptan, the auditor in charge of tracking the lies told by every individual, wants an easier way to track the liers he should just listen to the conversations over bus journeys. Enaaamaa pulugaraangapa!! I guess most of them use the situation provided by bus journey to cover up their shortcomings. "Itho meenambakkam thaandi vanthutaaaaay iruken" apdinu one guy was kooovifying today..when the bus was no where near even guindy. "Tambarathula eranga poren sir..neenga soneengalay solitu A/C bus nu kooda paakama 30 rupees ticket eduthutu varen. konjam wait pannugnga"..another one trying to convince his client. Inniki evening varapo kuda someone was shouting "Naan enna madam panrathu..semma traffic jam. Vandi inch kuda nagarala" while the bus was literally whizzing on an near empty road :) And one another common factor with all the above buggers is that..they've no bloody sense on how to talk over cellphone, especially while in public place.
