Its not about the so called culture and tradition…!

Got to watch the  Tamil movie – Vamsam in theater few days back. As  I was much impressed with the director Pandiraj’s previous movie “pasanga”, my expectations was lil bit high. And the review in Ananda vikadan – a Tamil weekly magazine also added more expectations into me.  While watching the movie I was lil bit disappointed with a usual village subject with normal stuffs. But the efforts were good and cleanly displayed. The second half of the movie is good, especially Jayaprakash and Kishore’s performance were extraordinary.

But I feel, director Pandiraj can do much more than this.I feel these kind of subjects need a good music.  But this movie failed to impress with the music. But one thing I hate with this move , not only with this movie and with all other movies is when it was about a particular caste system. Told positive or negative, but it creates impact on common people. Cinema is not only a entertainment media for most ppl, it travels beyond that. It gets into many lives and hearts an a  sensitive media too.

This generation doesn’t need the things related to caste system and the stories related to that. It will create a impact on this generation too. We don’t want to see a caste based division and discrimination again with our generation. And we need our next generation without caste system existence. I’m aware that these caste and subdivision are created with some good reason, but all the ex-generation gentlemen spoiled those values and now it is carried with different note and intention. And with the rapidly changing in the attitude of the living style , these things doesn’t mean much. So better to avoid to deal it detail in the movies.

Coming to this film Vamsam, the movie deals with a south region caste and portrayed the so called tradition and culture. The worst part is , few of my friends being a good critic , they like this movie and praised this movie blindly with no reason. I wondered why it was…then while discussing  to them in detail, I  came to know that they are from the same caste and region and they feel proud about this. I’m not finding a fault in them. Because movies is not only a entertainment , it also creates impacts. What we say culture and tradition in movies are not actually. Things were created for good cause and later it has been used for different cause.

Lets create a new caste & religion  free world for our next modern generation. Wish every director should have some social responsibility.

ps: about the movie is afterall my views and not review. Perception varies…just expressed my views.

One of the best Click in my life…!

05-07-2010 one of the memorable day in my life. One of my friend took me to Enthiran (ROBO) movie shooting held in chennai. Five of us been there and had a great time in the song shoot of Enthiran Movie. We spent around two hours there.  Very happy to see my all time favorite star RajiniKanth on the shoots. With the young look makeup, he looked very handsome and active. And happy to see the most beautiful women of India Aishwarya rai.

Nice to see the amazing and costly set and all the technical unit working in the same place. As usual A.R Rahman’s music was amazing. With only two days of shooting pending, the post production works will start by this weekend. Trustable source says that the movie will be released in August 2010.

Finally we took photos with Rajinikanth and was very happy at that moment. Usually I’m not much into seeing actors and actress and taking photographs with them (except for two). But I always wanted see Rajini and to take a photograph with him. And the dream come true because of Suresh(Asst. Art Director) and Balaji.  And only actor Surya is pending..and hope very soon will meet him also.

But with Surya the meeting will be on different grounds and different platform. Anyways I’m more excited and happy to meet my all time super start and to take a Snap with him. One of the best clickz in my life.

Ravanan – The visual Treat…!

Another awesome (visual) treat from the India’s most lovable & talented director. A old story with slight changes for cinema, with a effort less script, having base in cinematography , music and actors…this could be the best thing I can say about Raavanan movie(Tamil).

Mani knows how to get best out of actors. Vikram lived as Veera (amazing acting), wat an performance. Vikram was the  best selection for this character(veera). In the second half of the movie Aishwarya also shares the acting. Prithivi as a handsome cop did his job well, Fits best with the role.  The major advantage for the movie is camera and music. Santosh Sivan , mani combination never failed. And hats off to RAHMAN for the songs and BG  score. I could say the climax fighting scene in floating bridge was one among the best CG & VFX done in Indian film industry.

I wonder about the location comes around the film.  A little bit faster first half of the movie would be a added advantage. Anyways , from beginning till end I loved the movie. Please watch the movie in theaters with good sound systems, sure it will be like a treat for ears. Every time Mani’s movie create a impact , even we are out of the theater, but his time I miss it. But nothing wrong in it, this is also a kind of narration.  Gonna watch the hindi version also ( avid to see junior bachan’s performance) .

For sure  Raavanan won’t be a hit in B and C theaters , will make some decent mark in A centers. But still for movie lovers, this will be a treat. For the new generation kids, a new way of story telling about RAMAYANAM (Ashokavanam episode).Happy watching Raavanan.

ps:- The above content was just my view on the Movie Ravanan and no intention to hurt or justify any one’s creation and talent.

Every death gives a birth…!

MyViews – Sarvam – Tamil Movie

Got to watch this movie on its first day of release(15th may 09). I had some good expectations after seeing the trailer of the movie few months back. I Was most impressed by the camera and background score.

It’s a different try from vishnuvardan (director) but the same old story of Tamil movies. This movie would have been good if some of the cinematic scenes were avoided. Overall vishnu and arya had tried different things with our time and money.And arya tried acting in this move and he succeeded a bit…but a long way to go…!

Sarvam - Worth watching for camera and BG

Sarvam - Worth watching for camera and BG

But worth watching for the cinematography by Nirawshah and BG music by yuvan. The locations chosen and the way Nirav handled the colors and scenes are awesome.He makes our eyes pleasant in all the scenes. Yuvan simply touching hearts with his bg music.Few of the songs were also good. And for sometime screenplay is also good.

Bit of concentration on the first half to make it faster would have helped the movie to reach better and director totally wasted J.D chakravarthy. I’m sure this movie not gonna reach the  B and C theaters. Better luck next time vishnu.

At last I felt hard to catgorize this movie. It may be a thriller  , pshyco , love and comedy(non laugh) movie.

Dreams of a village gal …!

Poo – my views

Yesterday got to watch a Tamil movie called “Poo” (Flower). The movie Poo story is based on a short novel ‘Veyilodu Poi’ by Tamilselvan. The movie was directed by Sasi, and he has done a flawless adaption of the story “Veyilodu Poi”. A 100% village centric movie with the real touch of the peoples and environment.

Srikanth has done the lead role and the malayalam actress Parvathy has done the female lead. A story based on the character “mari”. The story completely revolves around the character, her feelings,her expressions etc., There is nothing new in the story, but the way it was portrayed and the way it was expressed matters. Stupendous performance from Parvathy. This will be a life time movie for any female actress, Parvathy got the luck but she deserves.

Srikanth & Parvathy in 'Poo'

Srikanth & Parvathy in Poo

Movie displays the dreams,simplicity,sacrifices and the real love of a village girl. Hope after a long time a women centric movie in kolywood and which gives a lots of scope for acting. Hats off to Sasi for selecting this script and for his excellence in direction. “Chu chu mari” song steals every ones hearts. Overall its a nice moview for those who loves to watch all kind of movies.

ps:- Its after all my view about this movie and views can vary with individuals.

Strength of Thousand Elephants – Vaaranam Aayeram !

Vaaranam Aayeram – The most awaited Tamil movie. A Gautam vasudev menon’s 7th movie and I am very eagerly waiting for the movie to be released.Surya’s stills are stunning. Hope he have done lots of workarounds for this movie.Already his six pack body become more familiar and his role as a 18 year old , 40-60 year old makes every one to see him screens.

Surya

Surya - Vaaranam Aayeram

Music has been released yesterday , Harris scores the music and Gautam – Harris combination rocks always. Totally it has 7 songs and few songs along with video has been released in youtube several months back. Two songs were already hit. I always love Gautam’s way of story telling and surya’s most committed performance. After long time Simren appears in this movie. With lots of expectations ..hope this movie would be released on Diwali festival 2008.
