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
(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
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.… Click to read the rest
This was one of the most waited movies in my list for 2011!
(One of the best scenes in the movie – Cheran facing off the criminals with just a small knife on a bridge. One to one and almost immediate – no stupid scenes like one hero flying or punching 20 guys at one go. … Click to read the rest
I know, I know…this review is more than a month old late!
(I know there was trouble when I saw a “Borg cube” at the opening credit of the movie. Poster source: Wikipedia)

I used to hate Tamil movies…

(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 can make the cut? Image source: Passionforcinema)
Indiaglitz reports it as “uplifting and brilliantly performed”!
(The last major war around the world at the same time was the World War 2 that happened between 1939 to 1945.

(The 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 but there is a big problem…
The problem is, despite having plenty of stars in it (Vikram, the beautiful Aishwarya Rai, Prithviraj, Prabhu and “good to see again” Karthik) and music by an Oscar winner, AR Rahman, the movie is directed by Mani Ratnam.… Click to read the rest
