Election 2014

A better entertainment that IPL has begun. IPL will look like vayalum vaazhvum in front of our election. No rules no logic no principles no morality that's our election. Sometimes we also have to wonder if it is staged like WWF where the contestants act as if they are really fighting. But at the end they laugh all the way to banks.

For the people who decides the government which comes to power the decision is not made after thinking about the pros and cons. For them it is like watching women mud wresting. It's dirty and erotic and it provides you absolute ecstasy but right after orgasm you wonder what the hell was it.

There are some who approach election with absolute fear. DMK is one such party. They are always desperate to win. So even if i form a party and i have some 100 people's support they will be ready to give me a seat. It's because of them all thukkada parties act as if they are decision makers.

BJP, PMK and Vijayakant provides the necessary humor to the proceedings. Last time it was Vadivelu who made fun of him and this time AIADMK is using him well.

Congress stands alone this time and it was not because they don't want anyone but rather even suyetchais don't want anything to do with them.

Finally there is one party which approaches election with utmost confidence and that is AIADMK. For Jayalalitha she knows she has to win if her current state of pleasure has to continue but she will never beg for votes. She knows majority of the people of the democratic are fools and they will wag their tails even if the ejaman kicks the dog in stomach. Just look at her meetings she stands on top of a medai with aircoolers behind her and starts delivering a speech which has all the arrogance elements but the people who sit under the chennai sun they act as if they are enjoying it. It is purest form of sadism. People are even ready to lick her foot for what for nothing.

Whoever is elected nothing is going to change. And our great people will make great decisions. We can absolutely trust them.

Kochadaiiyaan - Audio

Writing the name of this film with the right spelling is a nightmare as there are two i's and two a's. I never thought this movie will see the light as it was directed by Soundarya who is just famous for launching movies but not releasing them. But proving me wrong the trailer and audio has been released and the movie might indeed see the light.

What was impressive about the trailer was the sound effects and Rajini's voice. Rajini's voice which was lacking its punch in previous movies is back in form. On the visual effects it does leave a kind of mixed feelings. As there is a huge crowd waiting to laugh at the movie even a small slide will give them the reason for that. If it is a Kamal film people would say atleast he tried but it will not be the case for a Rajini movie.

Coming to the audio I can say that AR has given his best even though the movie is not like a normal movie. Each song is a different experience. To be frank on first listening except for Manapennin Sathiyam all other songs gave a let down feeling.

After listening to the songs on my Yamaha system the songs and the orchestration sounded excellent. None of the songs have the usual Rajini song feel or a simple catchy tune. They are very different and though it is cliche I have to say it takes multiple listening to like the songs. I am sure the songs would sound great in theaters with great sound systems. I just hope that the movie is as good as the songs.

Wild Justice

After coming across some lame novels I landed with a cracker of a novel. When I usually take 2 weeks to finish an average novel it can extend to 3 to 4 weeks for a below average novel. I finished this one in almost a week.

This is my first attempt with Phillip Margolins work and I am glad it worked out. I was somehow able to predict the ending but still there were enough twists, humour and characters with whom we can connect.

I have already chosen my next one and it will be The Patient by Michael Palmer which will be another first for me.

Hour Game

I am trying to move away from my comfort zone and have started trying out books written by different authors. My journey into English fiction world started with "To sir with love" and then I moved to Sidney Sheldon and then I became more comfortable with John Grisham, Stephen King, Robin Cook and Dean Koontz. Occasionally I tried Jeffrey Archer, Harold Robbins, Irving Wallace. Then there was a big lull in my reading habit and I have again rekindled that habit and been trying out books by different Authors. Some choices made me happy and some made me cringe.

One such book is Hour Game by David Baldacci. This is a 600 page book and contains murder after murder and can really be mentioned as an example for a serial killer novel. The novel just went one from one murder to another and there is a incompetent police chief who hires couple of detectives to solve the cases for him. The FBI also gets involved and together they go nowhere for almost 500 pages. They just sit and watch them murders with us. Suddenly there is twist after twist and finally the novel ends. It's not a great novel but it can be read if you don't have anything else to do.
