Hacksaw Ridge – One of the best war movie I have ever seen. Mel Gibson never disappointed with his directional skills. I’m a great fan of all his 4 movies and again for this movie now. The film will never disappoint you if you like war movies. That too this is based on a true story. (Hacksaw Ridge is the true story of Private Desmond Doss, an Army medic in WWII.)
Family of a army person, situations in their house during pre and post service in army, a true love, true patriotism of youngsters, trust and love in Lord, commitment, bravery, patience, emotions & Happiness, impact of a war (on and off field), what else do we need to get from a war movie ? This movie has everything in a right note and in a right tone. All the actors have justified their roles and CG works are excellent.
Hats off to this brave man Desmond Doss. when told he was a hero, Doss concludes, “The real heroes are buried over there.” Doss wanted to serve the nation by serving in army and he said, “While everyone else will be taking life I’ll be saving it.” & he did it.
Hope this movie will bag few Oscars this year. Lets see!!! All the best team !!!
Perfect Casting, simple yet strong one line, perfectly aligned screenplay, best BGM…Yet another master piece in Tamil Cinema – Kutrame Thandanai. After Kakka Muttai, this movie also came very well from Manikandan. Such a great talented director in the recent times. He is slowly setting his own style of film making as like “Maniratnam”, “Bakyaraj” etc., His way of not explaining the scenarios as spoon feeding, his way of completing the movie with the way he wants and no compromise in the name of “Commercial trend” etc., have taken him to the next level.
And actor Vignes is in the lead role, and he justified his role with his casual and matured acting. Screenplay, Casting, Background music, need of the hour one line (message), strong direction skills, apt cinematography….these facts made this movie a good one. Apart from the commercial success, these kind of movies are pride for Tamil Cinema industry.
I’m sure that this guy has hell a lot of talent and he will reach heights. Eagerly waiting to watch his next movie Aandavan Kattalai.
In a relationship, it’s not about love, it’s not about gender, its all about who earns more between them. It defines the superiority in a relationship.So-called male domination is the one which makes a women compromise her dream with no choice. Mostly the male domination thoughts have been infused in men by women. All mothers, sisters & wives want their son, brother & husband to be the one who is responsible for their secured life and he has to earn more to prove that he is a Man. It’s all about earning respect in the so-called society. Even now, most of the modern age wives/girls want her husband/man to earn more than her, just to avoid the social stigma. This has to be changed. It will take a lot of efforts to see a change and surely it might take few generations.
According to me, every mom, sister, and wife has a responsibility to not to infuse the hidden male domination thoughts to their son, brother, and husband. Instead, it is the responsibility of every dad, brother, and husband to infuse thoughts on her daughter, sister, and wife to think, dream and live free and independent. Though we can see a lot of changes in the young generation couples and parents, but still a long way to go.
Men not going to work is a social stigma and women going to work takes great responsibility and superior. This is the perception in most people’s mind. Why has this to be like this? In a relationship, it’s all about their decision to lead their life as they wanted to.
Work for survival, live to build a home and love & care for each other. Complement each other. Never take advantage of any decision. Domination starts when someone takes advantage of the situation. Women are not meant to be controlled or to be a sacrificing machine. In the same time, men are not meant to be superior ( physically/mentally ) and to be an earning machine.
Life will be so much beautiful when no domination thoughts are infused into the deeper minds.
Ki & Ka – Hindi Feature film, yet another beautiful movie from Balki. Topsy-Turvy is the best word to describe one of the most talented directors of Indian Cinema. Different Concept, unique approach, perfect casting, soothing music, eye-catching visuals, suitable dialogs and an equalent sprinkling of humor and emotion all over the movie. If you can see all these in a single movie, then it is Dir. Balki’s creation.
Ki & Ka is a cleverly chosen sensitive subject. The plot is all about the topsy-turvy thinking of the relationship ( so-called traditional / conventional practice ). The way he handled the script was amazing. Kareena Kapor Khan & Arjun Kapoor did their best for this movie. Swaroop Sampat(Kareena’s mom) role was adorable. Though this movie has got mixed reviews both negative and neutral, I felt that Balki handled it very well by not making it as more emotional or more of an advice or preaching kind of movie. He touched most sensitive parts of the movie very lightly, as he wanted to get connected to the younger generation.He just wanted to break the perceptions like Women has to do all the house chores and homemaking and Men have to earn and has the responsibility to protect the family. If handling and making a home is an art, then why its totally dependent on Women ?
Few other things I like in this movie are romance between Ki & Ka, Ka & Ki’s Mom relationship, Ki’s house railway and train interior ( though it looked dramatic or set kind of thing ), visuals & Ilayaraja’s background score.
Apart from the critics and reviews about this movie, I feel all men and women have to watch this movie once and this will surely bring a different perception of seeing their living style. I liked this movie very much and I will recommend it to my friends to watch it once 🙂

Cheap politicals stunts will create a bad example for future young politicians. (Next Gen. Politicians). Tamil Nadu is experiencing the heights of cheap political stunts towards May 2016 elections. DMDK’s negotiation tactics, PMK’s day dream for becoming CM of Tamil Nadu, DMK’s begging attitude for an alliance with DMDK, pathetic unnoticed BJP for no major calls for an alliance, no comments on Congress and other minor parties and finally silent and helpless AIADMK.
Aslo, we got to see few interesting happenings,
- PMK’s simple and effective and most needed manifesto ( but from a worse visionary -party head )
- Seeman’s NTK with effective and clean manifesto and principles ( not strong enough to win..but a good start if he maintains his stand of opposing Dravidian parties in future elections too)
- Vaiko-Thiruma’s MNK with a mix of so-called activists turned opportunists in politics (MDMK, VCK, CPI, CPM). A good decision to join together and may win hearts if they maintain this for 2 future elections at least
Few of the top blunders are as follows ( Dance of Democracy )
- DMK’s Namakku Naame Thittam – Heights of political stunt ( got some positive and negative vibes equally ) but a great entertainment through memes ( thanks for that )
- PMK’s “Change Progress Anbumani” and related campaigns in Obama Style promotions from A leader-party head with no clarity and no individuality
- Congress’s belief and assurance on winning more seats in alliance with DMK
- BJP’s where to go situation and waiting for a last minute call from any of the parties for an alliance
- AIADMK’s silent and confused attitude
- DMDK leaders crystal clear interviews with blabbering every time and get trapped to the journalist questions ( as the way they wanted ) and for all the enjoyable memes circulated in social media portraying DMDK leader
Apart from all these blunders, the worst was the negotiation talks from all parties to Vijayakanth except AIADMK. TN ppl witnessed historical situations like, a 50+ year old party to beg DMDK for an alliance. Finally got ditched with the decision of DMDK’s standing alone in all 234 positions. But now DMK pitched in for post-election alliance with DMDK with no regrets of getting ditched recently.
More to talk about these wonders and blunders of TN elections 2016. The worst part is, people are left with No effective manifesto, No productive schemes and No sincere promises, No people-oriented principles, No inspiring leader and No hope for growth.
Good luck TN for more wonders and blunders of TN 2016 elections and also for a bright future with inspiring leaders like VK, MKS, AM, JJ. 😉 This too shall pass by. Another election will come and we hope for the best.
Wonders or blunders, Let us VOTE and decide.
ps: ”Dance of Democracy” is a title lifted from TOI’s election news page. This post is just a view of mine and no intention to portray or impose good or bad impression on any individual party. This is jusst an expression of my thoughts on day to day recent political incidents I came accross.
#chennaifloods #chennairains #chennairescue #chennaimicro #verified #ChennaiRainsHelp #medicalcamp #areanames etc., etc., These are the rescue and relief tags used by most of the volunteers and good hearts towards Chennai. People stood up and getting back Chennai as normalcy.
Crores of Donors
Lakhs of Volunteers
Thousands of Camps
Tonnes of Relief materials
Hundreds of huge containers
Thousands of vehicles, vans, lorrys, Cars
Thousands of Shelters ( Marriage halls, mosques, temples, Churchs, community halls, bungalows, houses, Complexes, Multiplex, theatres )
These made Chennai what it is now. This is new to Chennai to face such a natural disaster. Chennai had no experience to handle this situation. Chennai would have never imagined getting these much support in a short notice. But everything happened. Very proud to be in the generation and humanity. No words to express thanks to Indian and NRI donors and the love they shared.
Life is so much beautiful with these good hearted people around as.Thanks for everything. We will be back in form in few weeks.
Let’s roar … ITHU CHENNAI DA !!!
