Recently I was thinking about my interests when I was a teen. I was a big fan of tamil novels. Especially Rajesh Kumar, Subha and Pattukotai Prabhakar. While I was reading these main stream authors I also used to read Rajendra Kumar and Pushpa Thangathurai. Compared to the earlier three these two will sprinkle in little more erotica in their writing.

At that time all these people were in their top form and they were celebrities. Over the year the latter two were no more there in the field. I can see the celebrity span of these celebrities are limited. I dont know how many of them remembers Pushpa Thangathurai. Only people who were from 70's and 80's still look for his writing that too not actively. Some celebrities will have longer span than others.

There are some who gets written in the history like the kings and artists like Alexander or Da Vinci but others are forgotten after their era. Their names will still be found by people who dig deeper into he area but still their longevity is limited.

Even if we look at MGR who had a huge fan following during his days, I dont know how many will remember MGR as an actor. People who search for his movies has come down and will come down as the people who lived during his days die. He will still be there in history as TNs chief minister though as it is an official record. Like that some might exist only in the history records.

Compared to normal people their longevity might be high but when we look at it from the earth's age everything blurs.

But dinosaurs are real heros they are still remembered after millions of years but still only as species which went extinct. It can happen to all the Kim Kadarshians, Paris Hiltons, Donald Trumps, Michael Jacksons, Rajini Kanths, Kamal Hassans and Ambanis as well. They will only be remembered as human species.

Sicario is one movie which impressed me in a long time. Atleast the first 3 quarters of the movie was in different league and the twist in the climax was not that impressive, atleast for me. Everyone delivered stellar performance right from Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin to Emily Blunt as the brooding women agent.

The cinematography was fantastic, the state of Arizona provides such stunning backdrop for the happenings.

Sometimes I had to just sit through without understanding what the hell was happening but it was still satisfying.

If you are looking for a gripping thriller, this is the movie for you.

It's going to be difficult to utter this stations name in future. How much ever we try we will not be able to ignore the horror which happened.

The scary part is there is a guy roaming around the city who committed such a atrocity in broad daylight. He might just be walking very close to us in road or travelling right next to us in the train or sharing a cup of tea in a tea stall with us.

So many questions, so many thoughts, so many emotions. I am only reminded of Death this post. Everything seems meaningless.

The concept sounded interesting and the hype that Shah Rukh has conveniently pulled off a 24 year added to the excitement. Did the reality meet the expectation? Well it is mixed reaction.

The main problem with the movie is in that it tries to be realistic and cinematic at the same time. The first half is realistic. When the Fan cries we can relate to him. But the second half goes over the top.

The ending is something which can see miles before it comes.

Even though the movie sounds to be message oriented it doesn't convey clearly what it is trying to convey.

But having said all that Shah Rukh is excellent.

The sad thing is this movie could have been so many things. After setting up such a first half it just fails somewhere.
