Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah

During diwali I had the opportunity of watching this movie and I was pleasantly surprised. The movie is a breezy romantic movie. The major highlight is its songs. I like all the songs instantly and Ghibran has done a great job. Chillendra Chillendra is my favorite out of the lot. I hope you enjoy these songs too.

Gone too soon

The title of this blog is a line from one of MJs songs. I have been noticing from my childhood people dying when they were still young to die. First such event to which I witnessed was the death of one of my friends father. I still remember going to his house on the way back from school wondering what I will say to him when I meet him. It also left me wondering even at that age why should he be fatherless for the rest of his life and how difficult such a life would be when greater percentage of the population including me doesn't have to go through such a tragedy.

People keep dying when it is not time to die. Is there a right time to die? Is it above 60 or is it above 70? Some guys live long enough to see their children's children's children while some die right while being born. For a larger population to be happy there is always a marginal percentage of people who go through suffering.

There are Champagnes which costs more than some people could earn in their life. When people are born in this world everyone is entitled enjoy the resources of this world but some people struggle for even the basic necessities such as water and air while another section gets to enjoy the choicest items of this world.

The world is not a fair place which also make it very difficult to understand the entity who created such a place but only the hope on such an entity makes it easy to go through each day.

The Jayalalitha Episode

The same people who voted her out during 1996 election are doing unimaginable things to show their loyalty to Amma.

As long as such crowd exists even bin laden can win Tamilnadu elections.

But all this tells us that there exists evil forces which are beyond human understanding which also proves existence of GOD.

A Separation

This movie by Asghar Farhadi made me an immediate fan of him. This is my second Iranian movie after "The Color of Paradise". Again one similarity I noticed in this movie is moral is same in every corner of the world but law is different but it is done in good spirit.

Another revelation was Tehran looks as good as any western city at least whatever was shown in the movie looked very modern. Also life has the same joy and sorrow in Tehran as it is in Kanyakumari. Though we hear that women are not given freedom in Muslim countries this movie has some strong women. They are no different from any women we see in Chennai.

The movie has multiple knots and all are connected to a main plot and it drags you inside like a strong current. We learn a lot about culture and lifestyle in Iran. It is indeed a pity we don't see such simple but strong emotional movies in India.
