Inception - are you awake ?

            "Dreams",an exciting subject christopher nolan has taken in his hands this time. We all know how good he is on weaving intricated stories impeccably with his amazing script/screenplay writing ability.He proves himself again with a big hard bang by giving us the INCEPTION.such subjects gives you eternal freedom on anything and everything.It could be on visualizations or could be on characterizations or could be on atmosphere or could be on anything that you could imagine.Your imagination is your limit, when you go beyond that, the dream world exists from where Nolan makes a convincing story out of it.

           Fantacy could have been an easy option but what the director has done in this movie is intelligence. you as an audience will be convinced on the subject completely no matter what.Though the movie is a pile of new ideas, the very core of the movie is the most interesting part which is 'Planting an idea in the mind of a person through dreams'. This left the audience with their jaws stuck atleast me. Ok goody,now you got a great bottomline, but can you enhance and develop it as a complete story ? "YES WHY NOT" says Nolan and he does that using "Nested dreams" - A dream inside a dream inside a dream inside a dream.... till you wakeup :-) interesting ain't it ? not yet ? ok how'bt this ? Those nested dreams can be shared by many people,will be designed by an architect and it will be controlled by a person. This is achieved using a technology called 'Dream-sharing'. what ya say now :-) ? I dont want to do the autopsy of the movie hence i leave it here about the story.

            Certainly a great research and thought process has been done by Nolan and his crew before he took the pen in his hand,it shows on the screen and pays on the box office.Leonardo di caprio is my man, he is truly showing all the signs of a great actor and that is why he has become a favorite hero for all the good film makers. As the movie progresses, Nolan plants a thought in the audience mind too, that is to swing a totem once we reach home n check if it topples :-), i did it i bet you'll do too.

Verdict : Don't Miss it.PERIOD.

June 25 - My Birthday

            Before I could forget my last year b'day celebrations and happenings here comes my next b'day today. Who said a year is a long time ? I disagree :-) nevertheless this day is special to me and wishes from friends and family makes it more than just special. My sister made gulab jaamun to celebrate her dear younger brother's b'day (:-)) he he ).Its a weekday so option of roaming out is ruled out but i'll go to 'Raavanan' movie tonight booked at sangam.

           Personally in the past one year nothing has changed except my age and my age alone. I am still the same person who would immensely enjoy every note of good music that reaches my ears, I am still the same person who would go on journies without any destinations in my bullet. I am still the same person who doesnt grow old on staring at the eternal skies, I am still the same person who desires to bring down my weight but not doing that by hiding behind silly excuses :-). Hope this year would take me to the right places at the right time and more importantly with the right shape :-).

Pehla Nasha - Evergreen

Another divine composition which never fails to rejuvenate the feeling of Love inside me perhaps inside everyone whoever listens it. Jatin-Lalit, the melody masters one of the ever-green composition from the movie 'Jo Jita woh sikkandar'.

A healing song

      A human being may have million superior qualities and capabilities over other living beings in this very earth, but of them all i personally believe that understanding music is the most distinguishing and gifted ability. A good music can light up your senses, it can magnify your happiness, can be soothing when you are in grief and on top of all it keeps you calm and more human.Thanks to Mozarts and Beethovans.I always believe no music or musician can be compared with each other. Every single piece of music that reaches inside you beyond just the ears deserves its own respect and accolades. The one posted below is one such composition from Yuvanshankar raja, he is immensely talented and still haven't got the recognition what he deserves. He deserves far better rewards for his soul-stirring melody numbers.

       As far as me, this is yuvan's best, the best tune that such a illuminating lyrics can get.It lists always on top of my selections.

Hear it, It heals......

பத்தாம் வகுப்பு விடுமுறை
அதுபோன்றொரு அனுபவமில்லை இதுவரை

மனித உடலுக்குள் இருக்கும்
மாய ஜாடிகள் திறக்கும்
பருவகால பயணத்தில் கிடைக்கும்
ஒவ்வொரு நொடியும் மனமது கிடந்து திளைக்கும்

தேன் குரல் போய் ஆண் குரல் பிறக்கும்
முகக்கண்ணாடியிலேயே முகமது மூழ்கிகிடக்கும்
பால் வடிந்த கன்னங்கள் பழுக்கும்
அன்றாடம் புதியதாய் பத்து பருக்கள் முளைக்கும்

மூக்கின் கீழ் கம்பளிபூச்சி ஒன்று வந்து படுக்கும்
அதை காணக்காண மனமது றெக்கைகட்டி பறக்கும்
அணிந்துவந்த அரைக்கால் சட்டை மூளையில் கிடக்கும்
புதியதாய் வாங்கிய முழுக்கால் சட்டை இடுப்பிலே இருக்கும்

எதிரில் வரும் பெண்ணை கால்கள் மட்டுமே கடக்கும்
வரமனமில்லாமல் நினைவது அங்கேயே கிடக்கும்
சந்தியாகாலத்தில் மொட்டைமாடி தனிமை பிடிக்கும்
ஏன் எதற்க்கென்றில்லாமல் எதற்க்கெடுத்தாலும் வெட்கம் தாவியனைக்கும்.

Sachin - The Superhuman


          A country, second richest in population is diversified in million things but stands united in very few cases and he is one among them. If you are born in india, naturally you'll prefer playing cricket over anyother sports. If you play cricket, naturally you'll prefer batting over bowling. If you bat you'll naturally try to replicate his postures and shots over anyother player. This is a primary reason why this country is able to produce many astonishing batsmans than bowlers after his arrival to Indian cricket.As a matter of fact, cricket did not made him famous, He made cricket famous in india.While he bats,He can stop trains in india, He can bring down the country's production by 5% in america, He can flood the roads with vehicles rushing back home to watch him bat,This genius can stop the time in India.To have such a incredible Fan Following, one should possess some exceptional qualities and he does possesses all of them.

Pick a quote arbitrarily that talks about Perseverance, He will completely fit as an example to that quote.
Pick a quote arbitrarily that talks about Caliber, He will completely fit as an example to that quote.
Pick a quote arbitrarily that talks about Humility, He will completely fit as an example to that quote.

He is the best at his profession, He is a genius of innovations, He is the benchmark batsman,He is who leaves you stranded without words when you tend to praise him,In short, He is what we all want to be.

He is Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

While People are busy in publishing books,big books and huge books about him, I am paying my respect in a trivial way by writing this post.

 Reigning 20 years and Raining records

When I was studying 3rd grade, he made his debut in international cricket and today after 20 years during which i have completed my 12 years of schooling, 5 years of my graduations and working for the last 5 years, he is still doing the same what he was doing then, ruling his game, Cricket.

Since he started playing cricket
- India has seen 7 new Prime ministers.
- US $ value has gone up to Rs.46 from Rs.17.
- 107 players have made their debuts in ODIs for India.
- 76 players have made their debuts in Test cricket for India.
- 2 generations has grown old watching him play.

but he still remains there and remains as big as he ever was, dances down the pitch and slams the ball straight behind the bowler for a six. He was a nightmare to the bowlers in the early years of his career and today he still remains a worst nightmare not only to the bowlers but to the captains as well.On the field he shows no respect to the bowlers what-so-ever but off the field, the humility that he shows is a lesson to every human being.

I wonder,could there be a person in this planet who could achieve as much as this man has done in 2 decades. He leaves no field unconquered. 20 Years is a imperative time for any individual human being. In the last 20 years this is what this super human has achieved.

Myriad number of his records
  • Youngest player to debut when he debuted.
  • Most number of fours scored in Test cricket. 
  • Most number of Fifties scored in Test cricket.
  • Most number of Centuries scored in Test cricket.
  • second ever player to score 10 Test centuries against Australia,
    a record remained unbeaten for 70 years set by Sir Jack Hobbs of England.
  • The first batsman to score 12,000 runs in Test cricket.
  • Most number of runs scored in Test Cricket.
  • Most number of fours scored in ODIs.
  • Most number of Fifties scored in ODIs.
  • Most number of Centuries scored in ODIs.
  • Most number of runs scored in a calendar year.
  • Most number of runs scored in an innings.
  • The first player to score 10,000 runs in ODIs.
  • The first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark that has been crossed in ODI cricket history.
  • Most number of runs scored in ODIs.
  • First player to score fifty centuries in all international cricket combined.
  • Most number of Man of the Match titles.
  • Most number of Man of the series titles.
 Few quotes about him by other cricketers

Shane Warne (Former Aussie spinner) :
" I'll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the  head for six. He was unstoppable."

Allan Donald (Former SouthAfrican Paceman):
"Sachin Tendulkar has often reminded me of a veteran army colonel who has many medals on his chest to show how he has conquered bowlers all over the world"

Glenn McGrath (Former Aussie Paceman) :
"I still think Tendulkar is the best batsmen in the world ahead of Steve Waugh and Lara."


Anil Kumble (Former Indian Spinner/captain) :
"I am fortunate that I've to bowl at him only in the nets!"


Mark Taylor (Former Aussie captain) :
"We did not lose to a team called India...we lost to a man called Sachin"


Brian Lara (Former West Indies batsman):
"Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal."


To all you tourists who visit india, Dont forget to do 2 things when you are here
1. Visit Tajmahal
2. Watch sachin playing cricket.
Because both represents our country's culture and proves our extreme capabilities.

காதலில் தோல்வியுற்றவன்....... இல்லை காதலியால் தோல்வியுற்றவன் !

துடிக்க மறந்தாலும் உனை நினைக்க மறந்ததில்லையடி என்நெஞ்சம்,
நடிக்க பிறந்தவளே ! ஏனடி செய்தாய் எனக்கு இப்படி  ஒரு வஞ்சம்.

என் காதலை நீ ஒப்புக்கொண்ட நாள் தானடி எனக்கு தீபாவளி,
ஒப்புக்கொண்ட நீயோ உன் தோழிகளிடம் எனக்கு தந்த அடையாளம் கோமாளி.

ஒவ்வொரு நொடிப்பொழுதும் உன்னை சுமந்தே வந்ததடி என்மனம்,
எல்லாம் பொய்யென நீ கூற, வெட்டவெளியில் ஆனதடி என் காதல் அம்மணம்.

சந்தித்த பொழுதுகளிலெல்லாம் நீ சிந்தித்து பேசி இருக்கிறாய்,
என் சிந்திப்பெல்லாம் உன்னை சந்தித்து பேசுவது மட்டும்தானடி.

உதட்டில் தான் சாயம் பூசி இருந்தாய் என்று நினைத்தேன்,
உச்சரித்த வார்த்தைகளிலும் சாயத்தை பூசிவிட்டாயே !

காதலில் பொய்கள் சகஜம், காதலே பொய் என்னும்போது ரணம், ரணம்,ரணமடி.

முக்தி நிலை

புத்தனுக்கு போதி மரம்,
எனக்கு வள்ளுவர் கோட்டம் பேருந்து நிறுத்தம்.

எந்த இடம் ? நல்ல இடம் ?

கவிதை எழுத எது நல்ல இடமென்று
கேட்டான் நண்பனொருவன்,

கடற்கரைக்கு செல் என்றான் ஒருவன்,
பூங்காவிற்கு செல் என்றான் ஒருவன்,
மொட்டைமாடிக்கு செல் என்றான் ஒருவன்,

காதலியிருக்குமிடதுக்கு செல்லுங்கலடா,
கவிதை வருமென்று கூறி முடித்தேன் நான்.

பரிசு ?

கவிதை போட்டி என்றார்கள்,
துண்டு சீட்டில் எழுதி வந்திருந்தனர் மற்றவர்கள்,
மேடை ஏறினேன் கையில்  ஏதும் இல்லாமல்,
நிமிர்ந்து பார்த்தேன், சிரித்தேன்,முதல் வரிசையில் நீ,

பார்த்து படித்துவிட்டு வந்தேன் உன்னை,
முதல் பரிசை கையில் கொடுத்தார்கள்,
பரிசு கொடுத்தவனிடம் கேட்கவா முடியும்,
எனக்கு பரிசு வேண்டாம், கவிதைக்குரியவள்
தான் வேண்டுமென்று .

 நீ வந்து போன இடத்தை, நான்
வந்து நின்றவுடனேயே உணர்பவன் நான்,

கடற்கரை மணலிலும் உன் பாத சுவடை 
கண்டுபிடிப்பவன் நான்,

எங்கேயோ போக கிளம்பி, உன் வீடு
வந்து சேர்பவன் நான்,

மல்லிகை பூவில் உன் வாசம் வந்ததெப்படி
என்று வியப்பவன் நான்,

நீ இருக்கும் ஊரில் நான் இருப்பதை நினைத்து
பூரிப்படைபவன் நான்,

நீ முகம் கழுவிய நீரை தான் பன்னீராக
விற்கிறார்கள் என்று நம்புபவன் நான்,

இப்படிப்பட்ட என்னை மற்றுமொருவனாக
நீ பார்க்கும்போது, நின்ற இடத்திலேயே
உயிர் போய், உயிர் திரும்புதடி.

எல்லாம் சுகமே

மார்கழி குளிரில் காலை ஆறு மணிக்கு 
தூக்கம் கண்களை  திறக்க விடாமல்  மறியலிட 
அதை சமாளித்து எழுந்து,

குழாயினுலிரிந்து பனிக்கட்டி உருகி    
ஊற்றுவது போல ஊற்றி கொண்டிருந்த 
குளிர் தண்ணீரில் குளித்து முடித்து,

காலையில் தனது சட்டையை தான் தன்  
நண்பன் போடுவான் என்பதை அறியாமல்
உறங்கி கொண்டிருக்கும்  நண்பனின் 
சட்டையை  உடுத்தி,

என்னை எப்போது தான் மாற்றுவாய் என்று 
ஏக்க பார்வை பார்க்கும் செருப்பை 
அணிந்து கொண்டு,

பெரியண்ணன் ஓட்டி, சின்னண்ணன் ஓட்டி, 
அக்கா ஓட்டிய பிறகு,கடந்த 4 வருடமாக 
என்னுடன் வாழ்ந்து வரும் எனதருமை  மிதி வண்டியில் ஏறி ,

மார்கழி கடுங்குளிரிலும் சட்டை நனைய வியர்க்க, 
40 நிமிடங்கள் மிதியாய் மிதித்து
நான் வந்து சேரவும் நீ  அந்த பெயர் தெரியாதவனுடன்
ஊரே பெயர் போன அவன் வாகனத்தில் ஏறவும் சரியாக இருந்தது.

உனக்காக வாங்க எதுவுமில்லை இந்த மூச்சை தவிர
என்பதை உணர்த்துவதை போல வாங்கி கொண்டிருந்தது
என் மூச்சு வேகமாக. 
என் வாழ்வில் நீ வந்த நாள் முதல்
இல்லை அமாவாசை, 

ஆனால் உன்னையும் என்னையும் பிரிப்பதே 
உன் அம்மா ஆசை !

உன்னிடம் அறிவியலும் தோற்றதே

மருத்துவர்கள்  கூற்று படி 
ஒருவர் மூன்று மாரடைப்புக்கு மேல் 
தாங்க  மாட்டார்கள்  ஆனால்  
நான்  இதுவரை  மூவாயிரத்தை தாண்டிவிட்டேனே  !

Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya -- Review

            Movie was over and as the Closing credits was playing on the screen, I was staring the screen with one question in my mind..... When was the last time I was bowled over by such a poignant love story ? and I couldn't remember myself ever been there in such situation in the recent past.... hmmmmm i would say not at all in the past. Yes! 'Alaipayuthe' made us to think about love, 'Love story' by erich segal made us to moan for their love,'Unnale unnale' gave us a glimpse of love in the pragmatic grounds but 'Vinnai thaandi varuvaaya' has raised the bar for the standard of love story to a different level. Its been a long pause since a full length intense love story based movie was released but fortunately Gautham has made our wait a worth.

            Gautham menon has proved his abilities on handling romance in all his previous movies. Though those movies' main theme revolved around a different plot, they all had a thin line of beautiful romance. This movie is a full lenght intense love story and gautham gets a nod unanimously from the audience as 'Yes he has done it again'.Story line is not a revolutionary one, but 'simply superb' is the word to define it. As he decribes in the promos of the movie 'poratti podudhu nammala '. Scene by scene, dialogue by dialogue love overflows but the feel of the movie wouln't have reached the audience if the protoganists failed to emote so well. Till date Simbu/Trisha's best ever performances.I am slightly unconvinced on Trisha's casting. There is no question of Trisha's performance but i felt like this story has to be done by fresh faces.
Simbu was brilliant in his role that is because we have never seen simbu so. He gives a fresh face feeling to us and that is what required for this story. I saw simbu as 'Karthik' but not Trisha as 'Jessi' atleast in few scenes.

        For such a story, music is the life and gautham was scare free and care free in this regard. Why not ? he has handed over the responsibility in the hands which holds 2 oscar and 2 grammys in it. First time joining hands with the Legendary A.R.Rahman and as expected the outcome drenched all of us through enthralling music. Like the 4 seasons.... Spring,Summer, Fall and winter whenever A.R.Rahman's audio launches, the next 2 months would be Rahman season, its Rahman season here now.Songs were placed at the right place at the right time. The visuals of the songs are stunning which adds more charm to them.

Verdict : Gautham Menon is the Phenomenon now.

Love is the destiny

Fear destines to tears,
bliss destines to tears,
misery destines to tears,
wrath destines to tears,
Tear destines to Love.

Thevar magan - My Favourite scene.

Today saw Devarmagan movie, after 18 years even today the movie gives the same feeling of what it gave when i saw it for the 1st time. If Tamil Industry prepares a profile of its own career...the achievements list would not miss Devarmagan, Truly one milestone in Tamil Cinema industry. Out of the whole movie if i am asked to pick a scene which pulls you inside the story, indeed it would be tough to resist the urge of choosing the whole movie but still the scene which is given below defines how good a actor sivaji ganesan was/is. There are few ppl who would impeach the acting skills of sivaji ganesan by saying his as 'Overplaying', for those all-mouth-no-action hypocrites,watch this video where you would fail if you try to get a glimpse of sivaji, all you could see is 'Thevar ayya' and 'Thevar ayya' alone.

My Bully 350

Every time when i ignite my bullet, It is not just a ride it is a PRIDE-RIDE.

Soaring spirit and roaring thumps,
ignore the pits and speed bumps
get out of my way, hey you rumps
or you'll taste the worst of this grump.

So...How was 2009 ?

This is a cliched topic which finds a place in almost all the bloggers pages. It deserves such prominence after all a year beckons us with 365 opportunities, 365 surprises, 365 challenges and what not. It remains the same as ever, it is us who age, change, raise, decline, laugh, wail, wrath.... through the course of its time. Ok  lemme stop this shakesperism and look back 2009. There were many milestones personally here are few of them.

....Got a promotion thru a internal project jump. To me, moving out of my old  'Wax on A**' team (professionally A-team-with-great-visibility ;-) ] gave much reason to rejoice than the promotion.

....I started doing this what i am doing right now... bingo! started to write my own blog (Going gr8 so far).

....Earned my own respect in the new team.

....Traveled a lot than the last year

....Chetan bhagat opened the gates to my Book reading habit, as a result i introduced myself to Jhumpa lahiri,Paulo ceolho,Erich segal and few more authors and finished 10 different novels in 3 months (I am elated abt this new beginning )

.... I owned/own a Bullet classic 350... since then its not just ride it is Pride-ride ;-)

.... One more year, one more opportunity went as a vain attempt in shaping me up physically. ( but i still feel its just the year which is lost not my hopes )

....Took steps to kill the monotonous mode of my life and its doing wonders now.

So overall it was a year which had more reasons to celebrate than to moan , indeed it was a happy journey, hope 2010 has more fun to splash out on me /the entire world.

                    Happy New year !!!
