This Week …


… So far has been a forgettable one .

 

I was in office for almost 65 hours this week including  Saturday.

I am suffering from Severe cold since Tuesday and the virus isn’t even close to leaving my body.  😥

If that was not enough , my computer has been infected from a virus called Rahul’s Virus 🙂 . Cant use my Pen Drive , it shows some stupid error message  having Rahul’s name .  Luckily , I dont see anything else affected by it . Need to get Rid of that anyway. Btw Who is this crackpot – Rahul ? 😡

Morning went to the showroom where i usually buy Clothes , only to find that the guy had chosen the best possible time for the showroom’s  renovation work. Hmph !!

Today’s Match with Australia was called off  too , I wonder why dont we keep buffer days in a tour for matches like these.

My Manni (bhabhi) took my book Malgudy Days . She didn’t know that i was  already half way through that one 😦 . So off  to a fresh Start with The hound of Baskervilles .

Ever since i changed this theme i have been eying to update my sidebar and my header image. I have photoshop in  my pen drive but cant use it .  Would someone tell me that dickhead Rahul’s addres 👿
I just realized that tomorrow is Monday and that makes this week even more awful .

Hope atleast you had a great week  🙂 .  .  Wish me a better Week ahead .  Thanks in advance . Cyaa

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 🙂

Yeah before publishing this one, A simple Question for you guys – If you were given a chance to take part in a show like this . What would be your decision ?? 😀

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 🙂 )

Ummm… Hiiii …


Bloody hell !! I have been staring my computer screen for almost 10 minutes now, just thinking how to start this post. I suppose you cant expect anything better when u are not blogging for almost a year and half.  Believe it or not , i logged in to my account after almost a year and for the last 1 hour have been moderating around 500 odd comments ,around 300 still waiting for my approval 😛 and yeah 80 percent of them make no sense anyway:) . Gosh! People are still crazy about hacking and counter strike 🙂 , thanks to them no of visitors to my blog has increased by around 1 Lakh since i left it 😛 .

Well,  I guess i need to get rid of my writer’s block somehow. This is totally insane , although i want to write , its like i am just out of words . I suppose this is what happens when You don’t write anything for a  year. You just end up like this drafting some gibberish Post . Anyways there’s always a chance to start afresh, and here i am trying to make some sense out of this senseless post 😛 .

There are actually  a lot of things i could share with you here. Its been almost 20 months since i stepped into my professional life and i  have just started to get the Kick of corporate life 🙂 .  Damn! Now Dont i miss my college life ? 😦 . leave the money factor ,ofcourse, I would always opt for college again 🙂 .I have bought myself a New mobile , a Brand new Micromax Q2 . I thought of buying a Iphone but ended up buying a Micromax set which ofcourse costs 1 Zero Less than than the former one and Since my sony W810 stopped working my Dad is quite sure that I cant handle anything properly and he somehow managed to persuade me in buying this Cheap Blackberry Remake 🙂 . And Yes, I bought a New Bike too , the new HONDA CB TWISTER and I am just loving it :).

Quite Ironic to say , ever since i stopped writing  posts supporting the Indian Cricket team, It has come a long way to become No1 Test Team . Now that’s something interesting isn’t it ?? hehe. Well , Honestly , Sachin Scoring a Double hundred, Chennai super Kings winning the IPL3  and then champions trophy i think i have missed a lot of entertainment here as far as cricket is concerned. Its just not Cricket that i missed, there have been hell lot of other things like those Witty tags that we used to do, those calvin and hobbes strips , those hilarious posts especially by Nikhil and a lot more .

Well, I wont promise but i guess i would try to be as regular as possible from now and Yeah, Did i say that i saw Enthiran (ROBOT) yesterday and i kinda liked so might just be able to review it in couple of days.

And To my regular Readers (those days 😉  )  How are you Guys ?? Hope You have been regularly updating your  blogs unlike me .  The Very thought of opening my google reader scares me . I guess there would be thousands of posts waiting for me, half of them from our Vishesh Ofcourse 🙂 . Anyways   would be catching up with those slowly .

OMG!! Tomorrow is Monday , Possibly the worst days to work 😦 so i need to hit my bed , its already 11:30 PM .  Wait a sec, Let me  switch on the TV first i just realized that i have been missing the HELL IN CELL telecast in TEN SPORTS 🙂 ,  So thats it for now,  The Entertainment Blog is ON once again 😀 .

CHAO!!!!

 

 

 

 

Jai Ho !!!


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  !!!

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  😛  .

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
