Mankatha, now the only mantra in kollywood. I just entered home after watching the chilling Mankatha movie. To start with I shud def say, its a sterotypical THALA movie.I have read the exact copy of this movie in some James Hardley chase books. Though am an avid movie watcher am not good at giving reviews, but from the moment this movie was released I got rave reviews about it which kindled me to pen it down here.

First of all, Thala Ajith's acquantaince are perninal, even after a long gap of his movies, the gala and josh was not reduced in theaters for his movies. Ajith looks flavored the movie very well. His formal dressing, with cigars in mouth, shades on eyes and whites on hair looked very good for the role. The movie is all about a heist, Ajith executing it and Arjun defending it. Its really appreciating for "betting and Booking" theme to be introduced in Tamil movies, which usually survives on remakes(intentionaly, internationally), cupid love themes or no theme at all. The director has tried to film something new out of the conventional rules.

People claim the first half as slow, tat is mainly bcas of the concept. Betting n Booking is almost like 2G Spectrum n Jan Lokpal Bill. We might have heard these names many a times in news but when we are asked to explain about them in detail we look up. So, the director has consumed few scenes to show, What is betting n booking, How its done in networks, and how powerful the underground world is with huge black money rolling with them.

Arjun's entry was more appealing than Ajith's and he has done his role in all butter and bread, getting applauds. I was wondering why Andrea was posed in such small role(???) . Trisha's role was just a breezy wand used by the director and she does nothing to write more on her.
Songs, according to me gives a negative fade to the movie. They never merged with the story. I liked the Vilayadu Mangatha and BGM. Yuvan failed to give a decent tune for us to hum. Nothing lingers, they were just passing clouds.

Second Half was fast and well screened. Ajith's sheer screen presence was seen in second half and proved that his mere presence can pull the movie fast. Though the movie involves loads of violence scenes, it was handled intelligently. Director beautifully eliminated all emotinal, sentimental drags and even handled death with smile. Its a movie where you come out of the theater with smiling face irrespective of bullets firing, cars rolling, building burning. You are entertained to expectations and dime spent.

Overall, Go to theater, remove your logical shoes, reasoning coat, sit back and enjoy Thala movie clapping and whistling for his appreciable screen gestures.

Observing My Observation

Crimes never end in the city, same time good guys catching bad guys also never stops!
Best part,we both watching new series every time when we are done with one, also doesnt stop!

This time it is catching the bad guys with the help of a Psyhic, a brain manipulator along with the FBI. Psych is an American detective comedy-drama television series created by Steve Franks and broadcast on USA Network. As we are done with Prison Break, Dexter, Lost & Heros we thought its time to move on to something lively, fun, thrill and chill . Hence, after lotts of fishing the 'psych' series was trapped by us and soon it started topping in the recently watched list in our Netflix account.

The main theme of the series is the "Heightened Observational skills" of the hero. I was greatly impressed by that theme and started mimicking myself like that hero in my everyday life. I went on to do small excercise by observing my observational skills.. Phew, everything lost! Only after I started noticing small small things around me,I really found out how colourful n useful my home is.. I found a small teddy bear bottle opener in my kitchen stash. I open it everyday, but have never seen the opener before and infact we used to borrow opener from friends n got a new one recently.After deep investigation over it I found it was bought by me n my hubby an year ago at a nearby fair.

I have noted a tinge of slight shadow on my bedroom wall. When u look on them in a particular angle they diffract different colours and looks like a rainbow inside the room. Flashback - I have spilled some oil on the floor which was splashed on the wall few months before. Now, the Sojourn through this picturesque wall looks more lovely reflecting colors when sunlight kisses it. I was amazed thinking how wonderful it wud be to notice everything around us deeply. Infact its a way of meditation in one form as u do every small thing with caution and full-heart. Improving observational skills is not burning the midnight oil concept. Its like hibernation, which takes time to get utilized. I found a very interesting VDO about observational skills. It makes you feel volatile. Check out.

Back in Action

Here am back in a different form, different attitude and personality. Yeah, now that am a married gal(woman). A brief recap of me in the past year for you- Like fish n chips combo, my parents thought this groom n myself wud make up a good pair and yes, till now we are. Got married to not so unusual software engineer working in US. Henceforth I quit my softy job to be with him. Now am a full time home maker with work permit visa, waiting to somehow get permitted by a recruiter. Besides this I pass time sleeping, amateur photographing, trying to cook something tat flashes in mind the moment I open the fridge and see all sad veggies lying unused to days.. My husband is a nicest gentleman and copes with me in all my spectrum color moods. Then struck why not blogging again and now am here. I thought I should first clear out my blog which had loads of junk comments like selling of abs machine and some cracky hackers codes. As I was renovating the blog, I happened to notice my first early posts in this blog.We often read others blogs n webs, have u ever read ur own post which was written earlier? Try it out.. Its interesting.. Like an album its breezy to go through. I was able to figure out a gradual increase in my maturity through my writing. Things tat looked so great, now looks so silly and I was laughing myself out seeing those posts.I started this blog as a fun while in college just to show my frnds even I know something to do with system apart from Fb, orkut, gmail and gtalk. Later blogging turned into some serious business where I can very well talk about anything n everything.. My thoughts and rants reached some soul somewhere in the world, tat made me happy n encouraged me to write more. It always helped me to rediscover myself. I had stepped out of blogging for almost an year due to marriage n acquaintances and now am being kick-started by my sissy to blog again. So hereeeeeeeeeeee...
