TAXI TAXI From sakkarakatti Video song


Well ,Ever since the audio of sakkarakkati was released Taxi taxi song has been a bIg hit . A.R rehman is a genius . Isn’t he ?? I mean he creates magic every time he composes music  and sakkarakatti is no exception . The movie is full of peppy numbers and each song has a feel good factor . BEST of the lot is Taxi Taxi 😀 . This is my personal choice .

I always wanted to watch the video song . Thought of watching the movie earlier but after reading the reviews, i have changed my plan . Unless they telecast it in TV i am not going to watch it 😀 .

Anyways I was searching for the video of TAXI TAXI song on you tube . ALL i could find was this one 😛 . Enjoy the music and the video ofcourse 😀 😛 .

I AM NOT THE ONE DANCING IN THE VIDEO 😛

THE DARK KNIGHT

Saw The DARK NIGHT oops KNIGHT recently (2 days back) at the same theater where i saw IRON MAN and if you are one of my regular readers u must be knowing how bizarre my last trip to that theater ( SATYAM multiplex) had turned out to be . So to avoid all the problems i had to face last time i decided to start from my house well before time and ended up reaching there 1 hour before the show time 😦 .

Well ,lets come to the movie. Quite frankly i have always found BATMAN as the most boring of all the superheroes but i think i have to accept that this movie has changed my opinion completely . The movie was just AWESOME!!!. Two and a half hours of spectacle that u would witness would be sure to make such an impact that u cant ignore thoughts creeping in even after the movie gets over.. 150 mintues is long for an Hollywood movie by any standards but the movie has everything in it that would make it an enjoyable and thrilling ride .

I must say that this must be one of the best superhero movies i have ever seen. The movie deviates From the normal conventional and stereotype superhero action movies where you have the super hero fighting his ass off to make the world better. Yes ,the batman does involve in some rescuing acts in this movie but it goes unnoticed before the Heath ledger’s ( joker ) role of a psychopath.

 

HEATH LEDGER - JOKER
HEATH LEDGER – JOKER

 

The movie has an unusual importance for the Joker’s character . Joker’s performance has to be the best i have seen from any villian. He plays a role of a psycho.The make up that had been given to accentuate the inner character was superb whihc makes him even more terrifying . He makes an impact from the very first scene he shows up . He is cruel , he is terrifying and yes he is intelligent .Every expression he makes looked natural which brought an unbelievable amount of life to his psychotic character.

ThIs would be one of the very rare movies in which you would enjoy a villain’s charecter more than the heroes .I had to admit that christian bale’s (batman) role was totally overshadowed by heath ledger’s stand out performance.No wonder Talks have been going for an oscars already . He was just amazing every time he was around .

Special effects and stunt sequences are simply superb , a special mention to a car chase involvving police van, joker and the batman would be a must . The scene lasts for a looong time until BATMAN’s car is thrown away by a bazooka. There was a huge roar ,when without warning Batman suddenly pops out form his car in a thing that looked like a bike with MRF tyres fitted and AK 47 on both sides 😀 . What ever that thing was it looked awesome .

Aaron Eckhart who plays the role of Harvey dent was good too .He added Something which made the script even more powerful and interesting . His make up for the later part of the movie was just excellent .Reminds me of the movie MUMMY . Quite scary i would say .

The movie ends as usual with BATMAN fleeing and the government blaming him for some deaths which makes it easy for the director for another sequel .

On the whole the movie was superb ,a huge applause which followed in the hall after the movie got over said it all .I would recommend this movie to every one , including those who stay away from action movies.WATCH IT !!! not to catch up a super hero flick but for the sake of late HEATH LEDGER’s wonderful performance .

MISSION IRON MAN !!!


Before you jump into conclusions let me tell you clearly that if any of you came to check out some review about the movie IRON MAN then i am extremely sorry to say you are in the wrong place. This post of mine just shows an outburst or u can say rant and rave describing the difficulties i faced to watch this movie.As the Title says IT was nothing less than a mission impossible for me to reach the theater where it was being played.

It all started with a call from one of my friends ganeshan (gannu) asking for me to come for the movie ( 1 pm show at satyam ) which we had been planning for quite some days now but every time it got canceled for some or the other reason. Today too , Unfortunately i had some work which was already getting delayed from past 1 week ,so i said him a flat NO and asked him not to book ticket for me 😦 .

Then as i was preparing to go out for that important work at about 10:30 i got a call again from gannu who seemed to be in a bad mood this time .I asked him his problem and he told me that mistakenly he has booked 3 tickets for them 2 times 😛 .So which counts 6 tickets totally for just 3 persons .He asked me to come to the movie in any case as he dint want the tickets to get wasted. i said YES half heartedly keeping in mind the Blistering sun that was out in the sky 😦 .

Satyam complex is about 20 -25 KM away from my house so i started at about 11:30 which is still quite early for a 1 pm show.I went to TAmbaram santorium station got myself a ticket to chrompet (to catch a bus from there) .I waited there for a few mintues and looked down at my the watch , it showed 11:40 no train!! I waited, waited and finally the train came and when i got down at chrompet which ironically is just the next station to sanatorium , the time was 12 sharp.I had a comfortable 1 hour before the show could was schelduled to start. 5 mintues went by and with that about 10 buses passed by but none of the buses among them was to my destination . Thank goodness they had just built a well shaded bus stand so i was able to stand in that scorching sun .5 minutes became 15 minutes there was still no clue of the bus ,i needed to get into . I was getting quite peevish and started thinking of returning back but then dint cuz it was a loss to gannu ( each god damned ticket had costed 120 bucks that means 120×3 bucks waste for 3 extra tickets ).

Finally i saw a bus 18 E , far and instantly looked at my watch , 12:20 ( 40 minutes is the actual time from that place to satyam complex) so felt relieved . just as the bus came near the stop it sped along instead of slowing down. BAST##D !!! that was my first reaction .i was clueless why he did like that.The time in my watch was 12:23 and I was helpless. I needed to wait .I waited again and the when the bus came it was 12:36 i knew i would be late so i called gannu and asked him to come out once i reach the satyam complex.

Adding insult to the injury the bus dint seem to move ,it was literally crawling on the road..I wanted to go to the driver and shout put on the accelerators you AS# #### . but again i was helpless I waited again and cursed myself . It was as if i had to wait till eternity ,when i was finally near my destination the time in my watch was 1:20 . Actually the stop is about 500 meters away from the theater so i thought of getting down in the signal . MY lucky day the signal was green and the bus went right ahead and stopped at spencers (one of the malls in the city) bus stop . SO now i had to go back again on the same road in which i had come . BLoody hell ! i ran like i had never before till the theater came to my sight. I had literally bathed in my sweat :angry: .Went to a shop near the theater got 2 packets of drinking water , gulped them and went inside the multiplex. Luckily another guy was late too and he was waiting for me with the tickets.

A final look down on my watch , itshowed 1:30. i thought OK , 120 bucks , 1 hour wait in red hot sun ,a drive in a motarized bullock cart and a 500 meter sprint all for a movie .What the hell !!.I must be insane. We Went inside and located our seats which was an arduous job too as it was quite dark and i made myself comfortable but thanks to my sprint the AC was of no use i was still sweating badly. AT a point of time i thought of removing my T-shirt 😛 but then thought abt the level of decency they maintain there and more over no one would be able to see my six pack abs 😛 in the darkness so dropped the idea 😉 .

With no other go i had to just sit adjust and watch the movie . How boring .!!

Phew!! Luckily the movie turned out to be pretty good. Nice story line . Awesome Special effects . And a funny climax.I guess we could expect a wonderfull IRON MAN PART 2.

Ok. now that u have come so far u could have a look at the review here. 😛 I am in no mood to make the post further long by writing a review and moreover it would be bizaare to read a review from a guy who went for that movie 30 mintues late 😉 .

JOHN RAMBO


I have had a real hard time downloading a DVD rip print of JOHN RAMBO. Waking up at 2 am ,yes 2 in the morning ,after sleeping at 1:30 is not easy and thanks to the poor service from the BSNL i cant even rely them for a infallible net connection ,so that i could happily switch off the monitor and give some rest to my eyes . Not having an unlimited connection has really some disadvantages 😦 . Worse , due to the connection faliure somehwere in Mediterranean sea the downloading speed was so slow that it took 3 days for me to downlaod it completely. Imagined getting up at 2 continuously for three days . ???

ALL for a movie where u have a guy as invincible as , i mean i cant imagine , who almost single handedly finishes off a whole military battalion . Believe me watching the movie was an arduous job even then downloading it . Being a huge fan of the other 3 prequels i was expecting ,if not a better one , a movie that would be as entertaining as the previous ones. But the movie turned out to be a big disappointment for me yet again.My chemistry with movies isn’t going well at all.This is my third consecutive review that is negetive 🙂

Violence is something that is obvious with all sylvester movies but this one was different .The previous versions of rambo had a strong story line where he completed the mission alone but they looked plausible if not possible due to the intelligent script.But this movie looked more like a documentry that has been shot to show the miserable life of people in burma suffer. Most of the movie is about killing people with guns , bombs or by some other means . you can see bodies being torn into pieces almost in every frame.

There was a time where i cant even see whats happening in the movie .I agree the nights are supposed to be like that but originality upto this extent where you cant even see what the actors are doing is silly .

Stallone carries the same weired expression in his face throughout the whole movie which u can see in the poster above it seemed like he was angry with the crew or something 😀 .The movie’s climax was as expected – rambo massacres 1000 army men with one gun ofcourse a big one 😛 . The climax has been shot with intense graphic like body parts flying , well some scenes reminded me of the movie ” SAVING PRIVATE RYAN ” .

Here is the story line —

SPOILER ALERT

Twenty years after the last film in the series, John Rambo is staying in northern Thailand, where works as a Boat man. Civil war still continues to take thousands of life in burma which rambo seems to have ignored since the last 20 years .

A group of human rights missionaries arrive at thailand to seek help from rambo to guide them upto the burma border. Sarah (JULIE BENZ) and Michael Bennett (PAUL SCHULZE) ask rambo to help which rambo denies first as in earlier movies 😛 . but then finally accepts .The missonaries after going to the village get trapped .

Arthur Marsh (KEN HOWARD) asks rambo again to help the embassy to find the missionaries along with some hired mercenaries .How he saves the missionaries is the rest of the story. 😀

BHEEMA REVIEW


 BHEEMA
Just came back watching the Movie “BHEEMA” in mayajaal complex 😛 and after 3 hours of non stop violence i was quite relieved to be out of the theater .Well ,i had written a review on billa earlier for which i was bombarded with some rash comments from ajith fans .So this time i am not expecting any softness from vikram fans 🙂 .
I am a great admirer of vikram so i was anticipating this movie from a long long time .The movie is about three main things – Violence ,violence and violence.SO light hearted girls please stay away from the movie :p but ofcourse you could got to watch the movie just for vikram 🙂 .He was the only life of the movie.As always, he played his role with perfection.
The movie revolves around shekhar(vikram) ,a thug who joins the gang od chinna (prakash raj).As usual their is a rival group (raghuvaran’s) which has a stronghold over the city.Shekhar single handedly fights and acquires the control for his master prakash raj.This is the main story line and ofcourse trisha comes inbetween every now and then for the obvious romance track . According to me trisha’s role was total useless  in the script but an unexpected climax gives some justice to her role 😛 .The director wants to give some message at the end  but for me the climax sounded as if the story writer was out of any ideas and was finding it difficult to end the story so the dirctor ended all the roles abruptly and that was the end (this is meant to be a spoiler for all of you who have not seen the movie ,I just saved your 100 bucks :D).
Songs are good if not great .But i was totally exasperated while watching the item song done by sherin.Was that meant to end some spice to the movie??If it was, Director made the worst mistake by picking up sherin who was finding it difficult to even shake her hips .OMG!! who would call that as a dance .Though sherin is HOT still ,an item number is too much for her 😛 .
Backround music was awesome for almost all the scenes.Fights sequences were something that were larger than life ,just unbeleivable, but the way vikram did them made it look great.Raghuvaran’s perfaormance as a villain was just infallible.HAd a short but crisp role.
On the whole the movie was OK ,not more than that ,dint live upto its expectations.Except vikram’s performance there was nothing much in it.
