Space 101: Next Stop, The Illusive Red Planet?

Are we on target to visit the Red Planet?

So Dr M’s Vision 2020 will remain a vision and will not become a reality, at least in 2020.… [Click to read the rest] “Space 101: Next Stop, The Illusive Red Planet?”

Tamil Movie Review: Why 3 Idiots 2009 is Better Than Nanban 2012?

It supposes to be a quick post on Shankar’s Nanban but I ended up writing more especially after yesterday I watched again the well made 3 Idiots

nanban

(The guy on the far right – your right – seems better than the rest. Trust me, you will be safer watching the original 3 Idiots than the “new” idiots in Nanban – they are nowhere close to the beauty of story-telling and acting in 3 Idiots.[Click to read the rest] “Tamil Movie Review: Why 3 Idiots 2009 is Better Than Nanban 2012?”

Tamil Movie Review: Realistic, Downright Engaging Angadi Theru 2010

Angadi Theru movie

(A very realistic movie on the lifeline of a saree shop, the salespersons and story of lovers who started off as enemies all in one neat package. Image source: The Hindu)
