Pamela Anderson in Big Boss 4


Wow !! Did you hear the news that Pamela Anderson is going to enter Bigg Boss 4 ?? I mean is it really going to be ‘ The PAMELA ANDERSON ‘ , ‘ The BAYWATCH ‘ star ?? .   If this news true then i guess the TRP ratings would be at its best for this Show .

There have been too many twists on this show already. First, Entry of The Great Khali , i think Big Boss 4 would be a place i would least expect him to be in. Then Dolly Bindra’s Wild card entry, who turned the place into a complete Mess. Man! She needs to control her anger and not to mention her Voice too 😛 . Hasn’t she fought with almost everyone in the house ??. Anyways then , Ali Merchant, who came in to sought out his differences with Sara,  ended up  marrying her inside the Bigg Boss House. That was weird and Silly too .Rahul, one of the few , not so vicious types is out (i was hoping him to stay till the last) and Now Anchal too . Veena is just happy flirting with almost everyone in the house and seducing her way to glory . God Knows whats wrong with Seema, She faints and remembers nothing about it. And , Amidst this , If Pamela Anderson enters the house, I am sure the house would be on Fire. Why not ? The lady is so hot 🙂 . The Ladies man Ashmit is going to be in a fix 😛 .

Anyways i had a hard time  finding a suitable picture of Pamela Anderson. My blog being G rated is not a proper place for such pictures 🙂 . I mean you can only find nude or almost Nude pictures of her 🙂 .So yeah, You can appreciate me for that 🙂

 

Pamela Anderson Dressed up 😛

The Great Khali , Dolly Bindra,  Pamela Anderson . Whats next ?? I would not be surprised to Paris Hilton appearing on the show 😛 .  They have got some Real Crazy brains Working behind the show.

Obama in India


Yeah, I know, you are probably aware that Obama is here in india. Infact everyone knows that and he is here for what ??  May be – To visit the place where the 26/11 incident took place, or To sign a 6$ billion deal so that he could go back with 50,000 odd jobs , or To get the tension Off  between india and pakistan, or To Visit Taj Mahal. It Could be anything, i mean the reason which is not important to us, all that is important eventually is that he is here.

Well, I dont mind the unnecessary attention that is given to him , he is the president of United States so let him get the special attention. He gets to set out his food on a specially made Red carpet from his plan. He gets to occupy one whole floor in TAJ HOTEL . He gets whatever a King would get . But this is something i found totally unjustifiable  –

Coconuts removed in India ahead of Obama visit

In their effort to provide maximum security in the run-up to his visit on Friday, they have removed coconuts which may fall on his head from trees.

All coconuts around the city’s Gandhi museum have now been cut down, an official told the BBC.

And yeah, I forgot to mention that  as funny too 😉 .  I don’t have anything  else to say. You have any comments ??

World’s Fastest Car – Bugatti Veyron


Quite Ironic i must say , at a time when the leading car makers in india are competing hard to manufacture Cheap cars like Tata Nato and Renault’s Yeni, Volkswagen owned Bugatti  launches its fastest and Costliest car here in India – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport .

And With this release , Bugatti Veyron becomes the best in Super sports category. According to the official site, Veyron is by far the most sophisticated production vehicle , ofcourse none can match the one that Batman owns 😀 .

Isn’t She Sexy ?? 😛

This Sizzling beauty can reach a top speed of 407 Kmph.  Yes, you heard me right. You can reach 0-100 kmph in just 2.5 seconds . If thats not enough to amaze it takes just2.3 seconds to reach from a speed of 100 kmph to 0 . Bugatti Veyron’s 16 litre engine generates a whopping 1000 Horse power.

Technical Specifications:

Cylinder capacity 7993 cm³
Power output 736 KW (1001 hp) at 6000 U/min
Max. torque 1250 Nm at 2200–5500 U/min
Gearbox 7 Gear DSG
Top speed 407 km/h
Acceleration
0–100 km/h 2.5 sec
0–200 km/h 7.3 sec
0–300 km/h 16.7 sec
Fuel type Super lead free 98 RON/ROZ

Bugatti Veyron would Cost a whopping 16 Crore INR (aprx 3.5 Million $). I read in todays Newspaper that you could buy a Whole island incaribbean with that amount of money 😛 Isn’t that something 😉 ? :mrgreen:

Anyways i think Only the tata’s , the ambani’s and yeah, the malya’s would be eying on it just to have it parked somewhere along with other collectibles as i am sure there’s is no way you could drive those on Indian Roads.

First Maybach, then Harley davidson bikes and now the fastest car – Bugatti Veyron.  This actually brings us to a point where it would be quite apt to say that automobiles are now the new status symbol in India, which is fast rising in the most number of billionaires list.

 

 

Big Boss 4


Big Boss , as most of you know,  is a reality show  that has been Copied recreated on the Indian television on the lines of Big Brother. And Big Brother, again u must have known, was responsible for bringing back Shilpa Shetty to limelight. Thanks to the racial controversy created by Jade Goody at the Big Brother, She was able to win with around 60 percent of the  votes, after which her life was never the same :).

I did not follow the earlier Big Boss Seasons, for the very fact that i hate reality shows( ofcourse, not all 😐 ) . I have , however,  seen some episodes of this season.  Honestly speaking the series keeps up a good suspense and so much of drama through out the show  that you are tempted to watch the next episode too, no wonder, the show has high TRP ratings .

Anyways, I Don’t understand some basic points regarding the show – What is the point in bringing a bunch of people (half of them unknown)   into a house and recording almost every part of their daily lives  ?? Do the Celebrities pay to get into the Big Boss House or Do they get paid for becoming a part of the show ? because i heard that Shilpa shetty had to pay some amount to get into Big Brother. And Why is the show called  BIGG BOSS and not BIG BOSS ? 🙂

Khali in Big Boss ??

The  latest edition to Big Boss 4 has been “The Great Khali”. If you have watched Wwe then u might just be able to recognize him. He was a sensation in the Wwe  Universe due to his size and weight ,when he joined. He won Wwe Championship too which almost all the top English News channels Covered as if he had won some Olympics gold Medal . Everyone knows that Wwe is more or less like Indian drama  everything scripted to lure the audience  but who cares even the news channels these days have become kind of commercialized.   That was more than 2 years back i guess, Now he is like,  everyone just comes and beats the hell out of him and may be thats why he is here to participate in the Big Boss season 4 😛 . Whatever it may be there are a lot of Wwe fans like me who would be switching ON their TV’s just to catch the glimpse of  what this huge wrestler does in the house .The Trick of Bringing Khali in Might just work out for the producers:) .

And yeah If you are unaware of the contestants participating in Bigg Boss 4 then might want to read this. . I mean honestly i dint know half of them ,at first. Thanks to google and Wikipedia 🙂

Enthiran (ROBOT) – Movie Review


No Spoilers !!

I cant think of  any movie that was being as eagerly awaited as this one and why not, just look at the names of the People Behind the Movie – Rajnikanth , Director Shankar, Aishwarya Rai , A. R. Rahman , Yuen Woo Ping as the stunt coordinator , Stan Winston Studios (special effects) and not to mention the Production house  SUN Pictures which backed the whole project with a whopping Indian Rupee symbol.svg160 Crores (and for the worldwide publicity) . And when names like these come together its natural to have an expectation beyond imagination.

Its not everyday, that your friend calls you  for a movie like Enthiran saying that he has got tickets for  weekend night show, at possibly , the best theater in the city. You dont get luckier than this 🙂 . And It is even more unlikely that during a time like this when you are high on mood waiting for the spectacle to began you realize that you are sitting on the Very First Row of the theater  😛 . You just feel like standing on the seat and to Cry out loud.. “MAAPU !!! Vichitaaan da Aaapu” 😛 . I guess this was only thing i regretted for the next 3 hours.

The movie sure ,unlike the other movies in the past, has lived upto its expectations (i mean my expectations 😛 )  . Before seeing the movie i had got a little “not so” promising remarks about the first half of the movie but i believe it could not have got any better.  All Credits to Director Shankar for believing in his script and waiting for almost  a decade for making this Historical movie Which might well be the opening for Sci- Fi Movies in the indian Cinema.  The Sheer flamboyance of Shankar’s direction can be seen in movie everywhere right from the Scene one. The locations for the songs couldn’t have been better  especially the ” kathal Anukkal “ which has been shot GOD KNOWS WHERE (please enlighten me ). I have never seen Special effects of such Quality in indian cinema ( Mind you, i am a big hollywood fan so i wont compare it to hollywood standards :mrgreen: ) although i feel , had the movie been under Hollywood Productions , the special effects could have been even better with even more budget 😀 . Stunt sequences were awesome ,the train one in particular ( leave alone the ROBO rajni running on the train 🙂 ) and I am really tired of actually saying that the music is good 🙂 . When A.R . Rahman is the Music Director, it has more or less become a default compliment associated with him 🙂 .

Rajnikanth politely declared in Enthiran why he is still acting at 60 . Although the movie is not exactly the Stereotype movies he normally selects , he has carried the whole movie and taken it to a different level altogether .  Sometimes it is really irritating to  find people mocking rajni and his so called exaggerated stunt scenes .  Yes,  he might have done something overboard but everyone in the industry too have done that at one point or the other, so why pick this man out. Better than mocking i think all those people should consider watching his old movies :X . Anyways lets come back  to the review, Rajni obviously stole the show through his ROBO character ” CHITTI ” . Honestly , there was nothing much in the movie when we talk about the performances. Almost 80 percent of the scenes has Ranji in it . I just felt as if there were just 3 characters in the whole movie (two of them being Rajni 😀 ).  Unbelievable but true.  There aren’t many Indian movies where you would actually be enjoying a villain’s character and i can assure  you that this one is one such kind .

Songs although wonderfully shot, sometimes appear to have been introduced just for the visual treat, like the “kilimanjaro” which seem to have no proper reason of being there.  Some action sequences in the climax too appear baseless but in indian cinema you are bound to watch those even though u dont like it 🙂  and yeah the funniest of all where Rajni talks to a mosquito ,it is actually not something that i expected from shankar’s movie 😛 .

Inspite of those things that i mentioned above i wouild still rate the  movie 7 out of 10. Please do watch the movie just to witness -the flamboyance shankar has given to the indian cinema,   life that Rajni gave to the ROBO character called Chitti ,  Music that was equally complimented by the superb locations they were shot and may be, on a lighter note , even for the kisses Aishwarya Gives to Rajni (almost double her age) 🙂 .

My Friendly advice for those  who love to watch a movie just to find logic behind the scenes is just avoid the movie rather than lamenting later 🙂 and yeah, once again for all those Who dont like Rajni, you should start watching his earlier movies first 🙂 .

And I being a Rajnikant Fan would be surely watching it once again ( atleast ) 🙂

 

PS: Did I say that one of scenes in the movie was shot at My office (Olympia Tech Park, Guindy 🙂 )

Cricket !!! What else ??


A 5-0 series white wash  against India in their own den would have been disastrous for the lankan lions. Thanks to some lousy bowling from indian bowlers and really stupid selection of shots , Sri lanka has been able to save a little pride by winning atleast the last one day match of the series .

India sure is on a roll and i have never been so optimistic about the current cricket team  . Yeah its the  same me who use to talk about the enigmatic indian cricket team and i still stand by my words . Anyways ,lets not talk about that 😛 . 5-0 against england and 4-1 here in srilanka is laudable effort considering the team without ganguly,dravid ,harbhajan and even sachin (if u consider that he dint score in two digits in the series 😛 ) . The best part being that they have been able to win convincingly and comfortably (Second one dayer was an exception ofcourse ). First time TEAM INDIA is starting to show its real meaning because the team is playing as a unit as for the first time ,not depending upon a individual.

Last couple of months have been quite exciting for Cricket fans like me .Indian cricket team is on second position in ICC cricket ratings for the first time . Yes , for the first time and thats quite a shocker isnt it  ??.A country like  ours  which has given so many great legends to the sport like kapil dev ,sunil gavanskar ,sachin tendulkar ,bishen singh bedi etc , has never been able to reach the second position leave alone the first place . Better Late than never now that we are in 2 , the no1 spot is just a series away . Touchwood 😉

South african team becoming  the no. 1 team and australia moving to 3rd place , Sounds so good rite ?? I mean i was sick of seeing a perfect side like australians had 😉 .  I am really happy to see the fall of the mighty australian side .Yes they were the best team and played some fabulous cricket over last decade but then they could never gain my respect ,may be because they were a proud team and had an acute superiority complex . MR . Ponting – i know it must be paining a lot .but thats the way it is . Higher you go , Harder you fall !! 😀

Coming to IPL seasons II , I wonder if the last two letters mean Paisa Lutaao . These so called business tycoons with their so called Girl freinds / cine stars are spending money like hell . The news channels have already raised questions if spending this much is necessary during recession times . I guess ITs there money and and they can very well spend that and i am sure they will get huge returns for that . Thats why they are investing it . So simple logic 😛 . All i feel sad for  now is that my DAD is not a Cricketer 😛 . If he was one i would have been one too and that way  i would have  made so much money by now 😛 and instead of posting a blog post , i would have released a book . I would have been famous . Not to mention that i would have become  a heart throb among the indian girls by now 😛 .. and then…….wait a minute i have gone way off the track .. .So where was I ,.. yeah IPL . So I was saying IPL is really merry making time for cricketers . Take for example Peterson and Flintoff , they are getting 1.55 million dollars for 3 weeks .. and Mortaza , the guy from bangladesh valued at 50,000 dollars was auctioned at 650,000 $ ,more than 10 times his value . like we say in tamil ..

engayo macham irrukku pa ivangaluku .

sorry guys cant translate that one 😛 .

Anyways  lets forget about money . All i want to say is that i cant wait to watch these guys come out and play .

well , I will call it for today . I know most people dont like cricket here 😛 . never mind the post ,u can always post some off topic comments on my blog  😛  .
