Tamil Movie Review: 3 Idiots 2009 vs Nanban 2012

It suppose 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.

I started blogging in 2005 – it seems to be “in” thing back then

I started blogging mainly because I wanted an avenue to put my thoughts in writing and improve on my mastery of English (I am still trying). And along the way, I have picked something on presentation, html and coding.…

If you are looking out for a good movie to watch, remember this name – Paul Haggis

The twice Oscar award winning screenwriter & director has done it again with “The Next Three Days” (TNTD) and if you thought “Crash” was damn good, it gets even better in this movie.

Sometimes, we can determine a good movie upfront by seeing who is the director of the movie – throw some names like Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and in Tamil movie scene, Shankar (although he screwed up his last movie), Mani Ratnam, Gautham Menon and many more up into the air and you can be assured that you going to see a movie that is not only entertaining but well made and with the right storyline.

Tamil Movie Review: Enthiran 2010, Simply Dumb And Simply Illogical

(I know there was trouble when I saw a “Borg cube” at the opening credit of the movie. Poster source: SYFY)

Before I start with the review, let me tell you upfront that we have been duped, major time, by Shankar and the studio marketers with the whole hype before the movie was released.…

Tamil Movie Review: Lovable, Sensible Pasanga 2009

(The main characters in the movie – Image source: http://nowrunning.com)

I used to hate Tamil movies, especially after the 1990s…

Ya, they had great music and if you throw in Sivaji Ganesan and Kamalahasan, great acting too but one thing I hated the most was the storyline – dumb and illogical.…

Hindi Movie Review: Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year 2009

Rocket Singh Hindi Movie

(Downright honest salesman – you can see it in his face but the reality of things is that it is a dog eating dog world out there. Can Harpreet and his no-nonsense company make the cut? Image source: IMDB)

Indiaglitz reports it as “uplifting and brilliantly performed”!

Along with the excellent 3 Idiots, this movie is another MUST have in your Hindi movie collections.…

World War 2 Movies: The Most Memorable Movies I Ever Seen

world war 2

(The last major war around the world at the same time was the World War 2 that happened between 1939 to 1945. For most of us who were not born then, we can understand the ultimate sacrifices that many gave from some of best movies ever made on this subject. Image source: http://www.buchanan.org)

Tamil Movie Review: Usual Confusing Mani Ratnam’s Raavanan 2010

raavan movie mani ratnam tamil

(The movie poster looks impressive and the trailer somehow entices us to go to the cinema and get the whole “picture” but that is about it. Poster source: Wikipedia)

This has to be one of the most anticipated Tamil movies for the year 2010 but there is a big problem.

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)

I wonder why really good Tamil movies always seem to have tragic endings.

Just take Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu for example – brilliantly made movie but the ending was tragic, despite the underdogs winning the final match, the main character ends up dead and the beautiful heroine is left looking for her love for the rest of the life.…
