Shraddha’s Valai


It is indeed ironical for someone like me, who was so far quite oblivious of the fact that the Tamil Drama’s even exists, to accept the fascination that has grown towards it. My respect for the various Drama troupe’s has increased over the past few months. The amount of dedication that is put in and the perfection that these talented artists achieve is just unbelievable. Take the script, direction, acting, the stage set up or even the background score, everything is worked upon with sheer sincerity. The very fact that these people still continue acting and creating wonderful stage dramas, despite the lack of glitz and glamour associated with it, just shows the amount of love and passion towards it.

Sraddha’s Valai, written and directed by Srivatsan, is a brilliant and unconventional script that talks about the web (Valai in Tamil) that we unknowingly spin across our lives. The opening scene enacted by the protagonist Balaji as Shiva, her wife Maya and his father (played by Kathadi Ramamurthy) goes for more than 10 minutes and Kathadi Ramamurthy with his witty comical punches steals the show with ease. The very next scene showcases the amazing creativity by the people managing the sets, a set over another. I mean the whole hall literally broke into applause when the curtain was raised, something that I have never witnessed so far during any other play. The concept of showcasing two different timelines is not new but the approach that was taken for Valai was simply mind-blowing.

The entry of Nithya Kaushik, who plays the character of Mrinalini, was definitely impressive. I mean, it’s not often that you see such a charming and cute girl playing a villain character. The eloquence with which she carried her role was pretty much evident through out the play. Did i mention that she was pretty? Ahem! Mani who plays the part of a staff working with Balaji was impressive too. Although the manner in which his character was portrayed was far from reality, it did add a lot of fun factor which kept the audience entertained.

Balaji soon discovers the evil plot and conspiracy around him that could very well jeopardize the whole project. This marks the entry of Srivatsan who, as always, got a grand reception from the audience. He played the role of the well known writer Sujatha. The whole conversation between him and Balaji was something beyond what was required at that point of time and perhaps, was just added to increase the weightage to Sujatha’s character. From thirukurals to nanotechnology, it had everything, which at the beginning made the scene a little draggy. Nevertheless, Srivatsan’s impressive stage presence did make up for that part of the script.

The script ended on a good note and it was left to the audience to comprehend what the real Valai was. Was it the web of corporate life that we spin around ourselves and we don’t even bother coming out of it? or Is it the technology that inevitably spins its web around us without which we cannot live and also at the same time which could do us a lot more harm than we can possibly thing of.

It is indeed quite sad to know that most people still consider the whole thing related to this Tamil Drama and Theatre as obsolete concept. The only solace is that various troupe’s and organizations such as Shraddha are putting all they can to revive the theater culture. Going by the recent unique scripts like Shyamalam and Naarkaliku Edamilai, and the reception that it has got, Tamil Theatre does look strong.

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.

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 🙂

A Lot has happened in a span of month . Yet it seems  so vague that i will have to search for words to fill it up here . Sometimes i feel that the world has narrowed down  much within a time of 2 months .Home to office , Office to home . Ofcourse they pay me but it still seems so odd . Huh !! May be i need more time to adjust with my Korporate Konnection 😛 . Anyways  i dont intend to write my tantrums out here 😛 . So lets talk something interesting . Cricket ???  . WHy not  !! . Well,  India creating history in NewZeland by winning a series after 41 years is not what i am going to talk about .:P They are creating “history” far too often now that it has started to become little monotonous now 😉 . The interesting thing is that HIPL (Hewitt internal peremiar league) is going on at my office 😛 . The good news is that my team (vennila cricket kuzhu ) is through to super six . Now how good would it feel to hit  a six as the winning shot 😛 . Thats what i did and my team members have found their new hero 😀 . Well , you see i have a natural flair for the game . Lucky that i have a blog where i can blow my own trumpet 😛 . And we have formed Vennila kabbadi kuzhu also  😛 . I am sure we would be atleast runner up in that . It seems there are only 2 teams that have registered inluding my team 😛 .

I have regained my old love and passion for books  😛  .  Although i dont get much time but still i have been making it a point to read atleast 30-40 pages  daily .Currently reading The White Tiger and now i am able to realize why people were going ga-ga over this book . Bought Robin cook’s  Invasion . Anyone here who has read that book ?? A short review would be  fine in the comment section 😛 . Talking about books , Yesterday one of my collegues came  across my blog .She was hell-bent on insisting me that IT field is not my cup of tea. .According to her I should ,perhaps , write a book . Now How crazy is that ? :mrgreen:

Rakhi SAwant Ka swayamwar

And Whats all this about Rakhi sawant Getting married On NDTV IMAGINE . I mean Is she  On her minds or what . I knew she was crazy but this is too much .I  need to figure out  a theory which proves  that  Length of dress u wear is  directly proportional to the size of brain 😛 .  And May be  now NDTV IMAGINE can flaunt with a big advertizement Rakhi ka SWAYAMWAR – Reality show ka Baap :D. The show would be the height of crazyness 😛 .

Other day i got this pic through a mail –

No surprises  .I am not going to write anything new , infact i have got nothing new :P.

First of  all I would like to congratulate Ar Rahman and Resul Pookutty for bringing oscars 😛 to our country ,something that we badly missed every year. Each and every indian would be proud for what they have managed to achieve . Frankly speaking i never thought we would get oscars 🙄 .

But ,when A.R.Rehman got nominated i was sure that he would get one atleast . He is a true genius . Starting from Roja for which he won national award ,he has never turned back . The magic he creates in every movie  still amazes me. I can name quite a few movies which ran in theaters just  due to his music 😛 .Kollywood -> Bollywood ->Hollywood , Is there anything left unconquered .

Long live rahman  . Jai Ho Rahman !!

Anyways, I would like to put forward some questions . Give me your honest opinion 😛

Both the songs in slumdog were good . But dont you think he (rahman) has infact , given us far better songs in the past ??

No wonder slumdog won the award for best cinematography , I really liked the way the movie was presented ,but did it deserve the award for best motion picture ???

Did You know who Resul pookutty was before he won the oscars ?? (i mean i am not a movie buff so i wasnt aware of him )

okay i will stop it here .You see, time constraint is a big problem . 102 posts still unread on my reader .  My valuable comment will be on all ur blogs within a day 😉 .Extremly sorry for the delay 😦

Chao  !!!

MILE SUR MERA TUMHARA !!!


I hardly get to watch Tv these days and even when i do  get time , most of it goes by just surfing around the channels . There arent any genuine entertainment programs available these days . All one could see is sick mega soaps where one women plots against another or  the reality shows where people do everything to disgrace themselves in front of public  or lame news channels which covers  a tiger-tigress love story . And living in cities like Chennai doesn’t help either because they bring in some crap Set top system and remove all the good channels saying that they are not free . Now i understand the meaning of Nothing Comes Free.

Let me come to the topic without deviating anymore 😛 .   Changing channels with a stone aged remote is a big pain in the ass hands 😛 . Bang it here ,bang it there and then press the button and it   will work . Thats the mantra for operating the remote  which no one in my home ,except me, understands . So i was changing the channels .. 1 …. bang bang …2… bang bang … ..67 . and then it stopped .I could not beleive my eyes .I was seeing the good old DD channel  in malayalam though . and guess what ??  The channel showed Mile sur mera tumhara ad  . I dint move an inch during the whole song . Even even my mom who was running from one room to another , stopped to watch it .

Created in 1988 by Lok Seva Sanchar Parishad, and promoted by Doordarshan and India’s Ministry of Information , the song still remains in the heart of millions of people . 6 minutes of complete bliss .thats what the song is .A song which describes our country as a whole , which teaches the meaning  of Unity in Diversity ,harmony and National integration .Too bad that no private channels show it anymore when it is most needed.

Political Parties dividing the country for vote bank is not new these days . I think those people should be locked in a room and this song should be played 24×7  😉 .

Anyways here is the song ..

You can download this song from here
