Kaala

#Kaala

Rain fight is the best of the movie. BG score is too good especially for Rajini and Nana Patekar. 1st half had me entertained with all dimensions of Rajini, tho some claim that it has lengthy family scenes, 1 song too many  and 1 fight less, but I find the composition most appropriate, couldn't have been better.

2nd half has lots of tragedy coming and the mass scenes doesn't compensate enough to consume the tragedies. Ranjith makes you yearn for mass scene but that is also why Rain fight is appreciated by most. Fire fight in 2nd half doesn't match the rain fight enough.

Ranjith probably wants to show a more practical and realistic hero. Dialogues are contemporary and fits the social situation, no boring sermons. 

One of the best movies of Rajinikanth, the response it has got now despite all the fake negativity created around him is the proof.

Even the opposers who fell for fake stories wants to watch it anyhow other than theatre, even thru theatre print downloads. They call it their principle to watch it not in theatre, but boycotting him in all formats would be their ideal principle, that would be the right thing to justify and respect what they believe in. Havent watched Kathi movie in any format till now since the story ownership issue came out on that movie. Sadly,  immaturity and ignorance is easily exploited by vested interests, as is said in the LMES video, someone else in the hiding decides what n when you should watch, what n when you should oppose,  what n when you should appreciate and I believe WhatsApp is the greatest tool used by these hiding vultures. I wanna remind those people driven by fake stories, it's not just ego you got, there is something called brain,  make use of it.

Pondy, the trip

Have been to pondy in the past a couple of times I guess, but my latest trip by the end of Mar 2018, that is last week,  had shown me the pondy that I had not known till then, the pondy that I should have known.
Travelled with colleagues on my car. We started at around 8 am after i reached home at 7.10 AM from office, yes full nightout that scared our gang if I would make it to the trip.
We had simple breakfast on the highway, reached our mediocre hotel, visited a private beach, had our great lunch at the delicious Kamatchi restaurant, full non-veg. Dinner and the next day break fast was at a self service restaurant near the hotel  and that was too good too. 2nd day lunch as well was at Kamatchi, it had that chicken and fish omelettes which I haven't heard of before and were delicious too.
I confess,  I did have breezer which technically is a fruit juice according to the boozers. Booze I understand is 50% cheaper as you would all know.
Pondy does have beaches and we visited the paradise beach through a ferry ride as well. I think this paradise beach is well suited for family. Ferry ride costed Rs. 300 per head. There is also the paid fresh water shower with music in the open which our gang enjoyed as well with dance. Having a real stage singer in the gang was a plus for us throughout the trip, especially the evenings.
Drive around the city with full pitch music is an unbeatable pleasure. 
We of course did not visit the temples and ashrams.
The best thing for me was the night we spent at the main beach near the Gandhi statue. The walk with gulfi enjoying the cool sea breeze and seeing around all the beauties....
Conclusion is that,  I should have travelled to pondy frequently before 2012, yeah when I was a real bachelor

மழை

அவளை நான் சந்தித்ததில்லை
நிழற்படம் மட்டுமே
பல நாட்கள் சென்றன பேசாமல்
வற்புறுத்த விருப்பமில்லை
இன்றவளே விசாரிக்கத் தொடர்பு கொண்டாள் குறுஞ்செய்தியில்
உள்ளுக்குள் ஒருவித மகிழ்ச்சி
அது மகிழ்ச்சிதானா தெரியவில்லை
விசாரித்துக் கொண்டோம்
அவள் குரல் கேட்க ஆசைதான்
கூறிவிட முடியவில்லை
தயக்கங்கள் ஒரு புறமிருக்க
சொல்லிவிட்டேன் அவளை நான்
இழந்திருப்பதை
சில நொடிகள் அமைதி
'ம்ம்ம்' என்றவள் பின் அழைத்தாள்
அது வெறும் குரலல்ல
பெண்மையின் வடிவம்
நான் முழுமையாக நனைந்தேன்

மழை
