நான் மகான் அல்ல

பொல்லாதவன் மற்றும் அஞ்சாதே போன்ற படங்களில் தெரிந்த அதே விஷயம் இந்த படத்திலும் தெரிந்தது. எந்த ஒரு பகட்டும் இல்லாமல் ஒவ்வொரு காட்சியும் நாம் வாழ்க்கையில் சந்திக்கும் காட்சிகளைப் போல தத்ரூபமாய் அதே சமயம் ஒரு வித Dark and Gloomy யாக உள்ளது. இது எல்லாருக்கும் உகந்த படம் அல்ல. திரையரங்கை விட்டு வெளியே வரும் போது ஒரு வித இறுக்கமே மனதில் இருக்கிறது அந்த அளவுக்கு படத்தில் வன்முறை நெடி.
ஒவ்வொரு கதாபாத்திரமும் நம்மை பயப்பட வைக்கிறார்கள். ரவுடிக்கான கதாபாத்திரத்தை தேர்ந்தெடுப்பதில் ஷங்கர் மற்றும் கௌதம் மேனன் முன்னிலையில் இருந்தனர் ஆனால் இந்த படத்தில் இயக்குனர் தேர்ந்தெடுத்திருக்கும் ஒவ்வொரு ரவுடி கதாபாத்திரமும் மனதில் பீதியை உண்டு பண்ணுகிறார்கள்.
சென்னை முழுதும் இப்படிப்பட்ட மக்கள் நம்மை சுற்றி இருக்கிறார்கள் என்று நினக்கும் பொழுது எச்சில் விழுங்க வேண்டிய அளவுக்கு பயம் வருகிறது.
படத்தில் வரும் வில்லன்கள் செய்யும் காரியங்கள் நம்மை மிரள செய்கின்றன. ஆனால் படத்தின் கதை ஒன்றும் பெரிதில்லை. ஆதி காலத்தில் இருந்து வரும் அதே பழிவாங்கும் கதை தான் ஆனால் அந்த கடைசி சில நிமிடங்கள் நமக்கும் நரம்புகள் முறுக்கேறுக…

Last in first out

In our country everyone wants to come last and go first. You can see this anywhere you go. Few common places where you can see such thing are Petrol bunks, weddings, hotels, movies, bus stops, traffic signals and it goes on...

In petrol bunks when you stand behind the person whos getting petrol the next guy who comes will never wait behind you but he would rather form another chain behind the person before you because he wants to leave first though you were there first. After petrol if you move to the air point again there it will be more chaos with 5 to 10 people wanting to be first ..

In traffic signals its always the guy who comes last will leave first as he will cross everyone and violate all lines and stand before everyone. Chances are if someone comes after him then he will become second in line ..

This act you can notice in all well educated people also. Try going to KFC in chennai you will see people who doesnt have the basic queue sense. All they want to do is eat bucket full of…

Traffic

Its been a long time since I posted a post on traffic which doesn't mean all iz well in chennai. Chennai has only gotten worse. With the metro work started major portion of all the major roads are being occupied and it is nightmare to travel.

It doesnt matter what time is it always roads are choking with traffic. I don't think the Metro is going to improve the traffic condition in anyway. It is only going to bring out more people outside. The way the metro line is aligned is along the mount road. No new routes have been identified. We cant blame them as the roads are the only spaces currently open in chennai beneath which we can dig safely. They can't dig anywhere else as they themselves dont know what they might encounter if they dig underground in residential areas.

Unless other cities are developed chennai will only get worse. Instead of developing chennai (which i dont think is possible) they can concentrate on creating some great cities farther from chennai.

Blue

Started watching this movie and watched for first 30 minutes the movie didnt go anywhere. All I saw was everyone aping all the hollywood movies they had seen. It looks like a spoof movie imitating all hollywood movies.

Now I understand why this movie bombed.

Inception

The above title doesn't need any introduction in the internet world but I was not as impressed by the movie as the most of the fans around the world.

First reason I couldn't gel with this movie is a person doesn't dream always so its not like you can make me sleep and come into my dream just like that. If they had told its like entering into the other persons mind then that makes sense.

Anyways Nolan sets up lot of his own rules and moves the story within those rules. There so much left to the viewers interpretation. When you watch a movie at the end of it there should be a satisfaction that you understood whatever happened in the movie but when Inception was over I only had lot of questions.

When I search the net for answers and talk to people who said the movie was a masterpiece everyone has their own interpretation. There can be intelligent movies but it shouldn't become like I should watch the movie and then read a book to understand what happened in the movie.

I felt…

Enthiran

Wanted to listen to the songs in my own CD so avoided listening in FM and mp3s which were available from 30th.

Today bought the CD from Landmark Spencer plaza.

Here is my experience on listening to Enthiran songs for the first time.

The first song Puthiya Manitha started with a electronic voice and went on as some school prayer. I was kind of hoping for some exciting opening but the starting was quite contrary to my expectations and slowly SPBs voice started and I could see myself falling into the rhythm but before I could enjoy it fully the music was over.

I fast forwarded the next song Kadhal Anukal as I read that it was a melody as I wanted a fast beat song.

Next song Irumbil oru Idhayam had some heavy beats but I couldnt gel into the song.

The next song was just music Chitti dance and again I was not impressed.

Then came the song of the album Arima Arima I was totally mesmerised by the song awesome song. I liked Hariharans voice with full energy.

The song that followed Kilmenjaro is a ver…
