if u follow telugu movies closelt u r bound to come out of the theatre wiping ur face from bloodstains . Thats the minimum gurantee that u get when u haev 4 fights and 6 songs and lot of punch dialogues.
This movie comes as a repreive and u can actually come out fresher than u went in. The basis of the story is an over protective father and a wanna be independent son is really a bold attempt. I think the movies that revolve around relationships and human emotions are well appreciated when u can associate urself with any one of the characters.
i ll go ahead with the pluses and minuses
The lead cast . I would go ahead with a contest of which is the role that Prakash raj doesnt play to perfection . Sid fits the bill
Genilia unusually looks average and has acted well ( she usually is the opposite)
The screenplay and teh characterisation are the backbone to the movie
The love track and the blossoming of love b/n the lead cast cud have been better .
My recommendation is watch the movie

I will try my best not to be a spoil sport , by spilling the beans over the story and the suspense .
I will as usual come straight to the pluses and minuses and the feel of the movie
Kamal , jyothika and the rest of the crew ( most of them though) .
Music ( songs and the background score)
Raviverma s camera nd the locales he s been successful to capture , and make the city stay in
Gautham's treatment and the editing that gives a totally different feel of the movie ..
The villain though portrayed in a manner close to that of kakka kakka , doesnt impress u as
much. Its a role hat jevan has left a deep impression and needs a better effort to redo the
The second half drags for some time , b4 kamal and jo 's life takes a diff turn.
Overall the movie is worth ur money but leaves u wanting for more from the director who gave us the "kakka kakka"
U can't help but go in with sky high expectations when u see the ppl involved behind the script.

I would prefer to get straight to the topic cuz i wouldnt like to spoil anyone's party( if u could call it that ) . Well the script seems to be more mature in terms of content. And the problem (or advantage ) with movies made on human relationships is that, it will be accepted when u have people who can associate with them . So the movie seems to be just aiming at the urban audience.
The movie seems to be almost right except the overemphasis about a particular situation now and then . It s a nice movie if u r the type who doesnt demand a movie with the script racing away . Its quite medium paced with a neat flavour .
Grandeur of the movie ( thats bound to b there when the johars and the chopras are producing it)
Music ( esp the bgm , seems to haunt u the way dil chahta hai did)
Performance of the lead artisites( baby b seems to carry the movie!)
drags a bit
u feel u have seen the treatment before
This is all i can say about the movie w/o revealing most of the script .
the plus and the minus will make u enjoy the plus and overlook the minus cuz u ll expect it to be worse but it wont

This blog , dont worry will be short :D
I just happened to come across this chocolate by chance and thought it was worth a tr y atleast cuz it came form the house that provided us with the max quality chocolates and i have no glitches to say they have maintained the standard . In a land where there are not so many dark chocolates cuz we love milk chocolates , this had to be a brave move .
Taste: This dark chocolate bar was broken lengthwise into six sections. Each piece had the Cadbury signature logo on top. It was fairly thick, and it took some minor force to break the sections apart. The chocolate was bittersweet and pretty good, if you're in the mood for some dark chocolate.
Aroma: Typical dark chocolate smell.
MY VERDICT : Being not so particular about food this has been one of my boldest moves to say , go ahead and taste it. it s worth ur money

The latest Zidane joke:
Where is Zidane now?
He is in a rock concert - head-banging to the music!!!
Well, now that the tone has been set, let me tell you one lil' secret - There is a Zidane in all of us!!!
I have seen and heard of so many people who have lost their cool when they should not have. They should have ideally retained their composure and carried on with their good work. But, then, where is the fun if everything is so idyllic?
I vividly remember two cricketing incidents that have changed not only the course of that particular match but also the face of that particular sport.
At a certain match in Toronto, Inzamam ul Huq went up to the stands and beat up one spectator because he called him "aloo".
At a World Cup match in Bangalore, Ameer Sohail hit Venkatesh Prasad for a four. Prasad reacted by saying that he should try hitting another four. Sohail lost his cool and lost his wicket too.
All sports are marred by such incidents. Mike Tyson, Diego Maradona, Eric Cantonna - they are all villains in our eyes. But are we also not villains in a saint's garb? Or are we all sages with no dark side?
Is it just one moment that demarcates a hero from a villain? There have been, in our lives, many moments like these. The slap across your boyfriend's face; the abuses hurled at your best friend; the decision to leave home forever - the list is just too long. And then, we regret. And apologize. Or maybe we don't. But by then, does it really matter?
Fardeen Khan and Rahul Mahajan say that they regret that one moment. So does Sanjay Dutt. So Hugh Grant and Paris Hilton. But, as I mentioned, does it really matter? The moment of madness leaves a very bad taste in the mouth. And there is no use ruing over the deed done.
I am not trying to glorify such deeds - but am definitely trying to make sense out of it by saying that we all go through such flashes. We all do it - unknowingly - and then realize.
Most of us sail through life very smoothly and then we react or act suddenly like a wasp-bitten cat. That moment undoes all the heroics and good work done by us in the past. And suddenly, we are the EVIL.
The reasons for reacting like that may be innumerable - a personal grievance; some childhood scar;a psychological disorder. And if the scar is very deeply embedded then even a small instigation may result in vicious reactions.
And then, people suddenly become Zidanes....

A moment of Ronaldo class and a controversial Adriano goal helped give Brazil a 3-0 win over Ghana on Tuesday but their path to the World Cup quarter-finals was far from smooth.
Ronaldo struck after five minutes but Ghana piled on the pressure and exposed the world champions' defence on several occasions before Adriano broke their hearts, if not their spirits, in first-half injury time.
Midfielder Ze Roberto added the third in the 84th minute when he slipped the Ghanaian offside trap once more.
Ghana ended the match with 10 men, striker Asamoah Gyan sent off in the 81st minute when he collected his second yellow card for a dive.
Brazil, seeking a fourth successive final appearance and a sixth triumph, now face Spain or France, who meet in the last remaining second round game later.
Brazil got the ideal start when Kaka sprung the offside trap with a pass into the path of Ronaldo and the striker bamboozled Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingston with a quickstep dummy before tucking in his 15th World Cup goal, overhauling the record he shared with Germany's Gerd Mueller.
Ghana, without suspended midfield inspiration Michael Essien, looked in disarray in the first 20 minutes but gradually settled to attack the shaky heart of the Brazilian defence and create a series of chances that had the world champions rattled.
Matthew Amoah should have scored but scuffed his shot in front of goal after 24 minutes and John Mensah then met a corner with a perfect downward header that Brazil keeper Dida somehow kept out with his foot.
Ghana were then stunned on the break with a controversial goal as Kaka fed the overlapping Cafu, making a Brazilian record 19th World Cup finals appearance.
Adriano was well offside at that point but play continued as he had not collected the ball but he was certainly involved, and probably still marginally offside, as he drove into the six-yard box to nudge home his captain's low cross.
The Ghana players protested to no avail as did their Serbian coach Ratomir Dujkovic, who was sent to the stands for his troubles.
The last remaining African side in the competition did well to come out fighting, with Gyan forcing Dida into a good diving save after 69 minutes.
I know the title never sounds like antonyms , but in reality it persuades u to feel this way . WHy does FIFA shy away from Technolgy thats begging to be used . U have almost all games that seek the help of technology for corroboration of the on field evidence but the game which involves teh maximum money shies away from it .Huge paradox !
U have the penalty to Italy , today's Adriono's Offside , and even the Cafu's offside and what not . In a day u can get more than half a dozen instances that make the game more unfair and susceptible to humar error. Over all why will i ever forget the "Hand Of God " ( ya we never had he tech those days as we have now. )
If its the time constraint that FIFA has in its mind , very sorry , we can watch a game for 2 or even 2.5 if its played fairly with stop timers. That shouldnt be the barrier in a game that involves huge money and the public sentiment .
All we want is a good game of football thats fought fairly. When wil this strike to FIFA or if i am not well informed abt the reason , please comment
I have been very satisfied with this camera , and a good option for camera in this range.
U have to choose teh dealer u r gonna buy from as additional costs for accessories and battery or may be the memory card can be avoided.
1) Great picture clarity
2) Good shutter speed
3) audio playback strong in videos
4) Good red eye reduction via camera
5) lot of options to shoot during various situations like beach , sports etc that sets the modes regarding pixel quality etc all by itself
6) Good kodak sofware that hass average no of alteration modes
2) Bad battery back up . This applies when u r using the standard duracell type batteries . BUt when u ue the NiMH batteries as recommended by KODAK , it lasts 100 fotographs . U get low cost batteries in gray market and that is worth the money . but never use teh standad eveready or duracell batteries . It last for less than 10 fotografs
3) Video quality is not good .

All u could shout out at the 95+ min was "what the F@#$" .Its not just u or me , it wud have been the reaction of most of the people other than the Azzuries. When Italy more or less dominated the 1st half half and the half went goalless and then the socceroos had the ball rolling for them for most of the second half , i think the game deserverved a better finish than the what we saw . It was a damp squib in terms of the poor refreeing .
This is what i am blogging immediately after watching the match , so i think u guys need to stand the intensity that may ooze outta this .
Ya i had to bow to the bad red card decision against the italians but that by no means equalise the decision for the penalty in the final seconds of the match.
If u guys havent seen a match that changed in teh final seconds on the half , then this was a perfect illustration of what a goof up by the refree can lead to . The commentaors ( harsha bhogle and Co ) were equally shocked by the refree's decsion. One of them said that he had seen such incidents of playing for the penalty and earning it many a time in the italian and the spanish league. He did the same thing here , a person with a kinda ok sight could spot that that totti earned the penalty and tripped when he could have easily crossed the defender.
If u thought that azzuries would have had a cake walk b4 the match started , then u r highly mistaken , cuz it was the strategic cheating that got them thru.
Its not that i didnt want them to win , its just that , i wanted such an enthralling encounter be given its due respect , and finished in a manner where the winning side can take pride in its victory .
for more on that read the following article on CNN IBN

For a person who didnt like the theme parks to one who wants to go there within a week's time , its wuite a huge turn around.It could have been the low quality if theme parks that i had been earlier that may have turned me off. I have abstained from visiting the ones that have sprang up offlate. But this place (Wonderla) thats about 28 km drive from b lore, is the one that turned my opinions on these theme parks . Its got a wide gamut of dry( scray) ones and the water (enjoyable ) ones.
These just take responsibilty that the child within u peeps out . The hygiene in the park is something that needs to be lauded for. For a place thats full of water and foot marks they have invested quite a few people ro maintain its neatness. I personally enjoyed the water games and refrained from those scray twists and turns that are engineered magnificently. I'd prefer to keep the blog short cuz its more fun to be than to read .But for first timers , there is 1 thing i'd recommend .Other than the rides , dont miss the cine magic and the Bird's eye giant wheel . The cine magic seems to be simulated to perfection that gives u a 1st hand experience of a bumpy ride and then teh giant wheel is sth thats better experienced than said .
At last i think this trip was a wonderful equaliser , in terms of real life nervous ppl seemed to possess more courage whereas the alleged brave ones seemed to chicken out ( as i did )

If u have heard all the bad reviews on puduppettai and u were searching for the 1 good review , u have followed the right link . This is nt an effort to buck up a losing movie cuz its collected more than invested and isnt a loss in any propotion , its just what i feel abt the movie and a person who is ready to provide u realistic movies at the cost of his image .
Yeah i mean selvaraghavan . He has totally broken the tamizh cinema "sampradhayam " to give u a realistic portrayal , rather an insight into a gangster's life . I wont be givin u a summary of what the story or the plot is like , cuz i think its a journey thru a person's life . Just when i thought that i'll start giving just the pluses and the minuses of a movie , i feel like giving more on his movie .
Now all the compalints about the movie can be , why will person do like this ?
how can a person be so ruthless?
What makes him do this ?
where does this rage come from?
People who havent liked the movie always find it tough to relate themselves to this character and find a lot of such unanswered questions . But the foremost thing u need to do is know that he is a gangster and u r not . So u obviously won't be able to associate urself with him. With this in mind , if u step into the theatre u r bound to enjoy the visual treat .
here is a link who asks so many questions http://www.cinesouth.com/scopes/reviews/new/pudupettai.shtml .
But please u need to know what happens to their life b4 we shoot out these kinda questions . U know that prostitutes an subject to inhumane treatment and this has been in media . It just makes me wonder how can a famous website be so naive .
Now to the + and the +
1) Arvind krishna's offbeat cinematography . He just rox with never seen b4 kinda visuals. He
Single handedly gives ur ticket's worth .Be it wide lens shots or teh dawn and dusk shots ,
2) Yuvan shankar raja is a major factor y ppl thronged to theatres cuz his music was a sensation
much b4 the movie released .
3) Selva's bold narration and characterisation.
4) Dhanush's performance .
1) Length of the 2nd half
2) Climax that glorified the villian
But to me i feel that this is the 1st movie where the gangster is treated as a gangster and not a godfather who helps the poor outta trouble . The life span of a gangster is 10 yrs at the max and this accentuates the same.
I have to applaud selva for his bold script and realistic portrayal . He jas it in him to turn the tables of tamizh cinema

With the title slide of the movie boasting of names like Dharani , Pawan Kalyan ,
Sri Surya movies (A.M.Rathnam) , Vidyasagar , V.T.Vijayan and if the first half an hour of the movie was anything to go by this movie should have been the biggest blockbuster for some time now. But as the movie progresses , you'll realise that all the above touted factors have worked their way out to make the movie as cliche and "let down" as possible .
The movie revolves around the never-told-before(pun intended) theme of factionism. The movie starts of impressively with pawan kalyan aka Bangaram organising a dare devil interview with the assam terrorist outfit , but the movie loses its fizz gradually . The plot in a nutshell is about how bangaram tries hard to unite the separeted lovers ( i hate this words being phrased this way ) .
Bangaram circumstansially ends up in Karnaul , where factionism is on a high. The characterisation of the factionist groups is portrayed , like you would feel they would soon develop a software to keep track of the in depth details of the alleged "martyrs" in the bloody duels.
I wont reveal any other information about the story ( obvious that i dont wanna think more as wat the story could have been ) . A.M.Rathnam would have imagined that the subject of factionism would have enough impetus for the crowds to throng , but looks like it ll be the opposite ( i wouldnt like to commit myself to this cuz i cant trust the taste of Andhra ) .
This one of the very few examples , where a movie isnt very great but u still dont feel the length ( its we ll over 3 hrs) .
Well i had to be a hell a lot optimistic to be pointing the pluses of the movies .
I could point out 4 good pluses in the movie .
Pawan Kalyan ::: Vidyasagar ::: The child artiste ( the heroine's sis)::: Camera work (Gopinath)
Pawan has the X factor in him that will still make u go and watch him in the big screen . You would feel what i say is true when u witness the crowd enthusiasm even after a hatrick of flops .His stunts that are his trade mark and his natural self in terms of comedy and acting seldom lets him down and even here he somehow manages to be the silver lining in this movie .
Vidyasagar with his peppy tracks sporadically wakes the audience up( well this is left to ur discretion , depending on what ur taste is ) .
For me the biggest find would be the girl who comes as the heroine's sister . From minute expressions to emotions , she seeems to outshine most in the movie . Accolades to the girlie .
Gopinath's camera tries hard to keep u glued to the screen
Well i wont speak in detail and bore you guys off . I will just mention it .
To me the biggest letdown is dharani ( director) , having displayed his prowess in over 3 movies , this movie just negates them all . Screenplay is banal and nothing new, except for a scene here and there .
The villains and the henchmen of the opposing groups seem to have deafening effect on the audience.
The climax and the whole concept of swapping the bride is puke level .
The comedy is nt great or bad . Serves no purpose either . Looks like we need a break from factionism and try to delve on subjects that are a little different. Atleast i have had enough of chest thumping , thigh slapping and reiterating the "poguru and pourusham of a rayalseema manushi"
The movie seems very likely to lose out to POKIRI that realeased a week earlier , and seems to have enough reason for a movie goer to shower repeated visits .
P.S Looks like vijay has selected the wrong movie to remake again .

When you are totally bugged on a sunday afternoon and you are left with no other option but a movie, If u are quail whether you would get tickets on a sunday , no apprehensions , u'll definitely get . But 9 outta 10 of u wud have felt it was better to stay home than risk urself on this .
Not disparaging the movie any more ( what else am i left with ) , the movie has its good moments but somehow the pace of the movie militates its good story . Now the plot is about a girl Simran , the lady love of the international gangster is enebriated every other day and aakash (emraan hashmi) provies her the moral support , and the shoulder she needs , and then the relation takes predictable twists and ends on an unexpected note ( i know anurag basu , the director wud do the narration better , cuz he's a professional ) .
The pluses first ( you ll know i am a very optimistic person after you watched and read this ).
You d say that the role of ganster daya ( shiny ahuja ) stands out . This guy has a very few lines and yet stands out with his expressions. Next emraan wont let fans like me down and he impeccably knows y i venture to watch his movies . He has a few torrid kisses and may very soon at this rate earn the distinction of the "most played ground ( his lips) ".Well the most important plus is that u r in for a surprise if u'd expect gunshots in a movie called Gangster (kinda misnomer), cuz its a love triangle . And a couple of songs are good.
Well that was all i could take solace of in this movie.
Well now for the minuses( i'd better make the list short, i dont wanna bore others u c ) . The heroine despite the decent performance here and there , is totally unphotogenic . She ( or her dubbing artiste ) screams more often than keeps silence. The screenplay is kinda cliche with betrayal of the lover . Emraan Haashmi never seems to find a girl of his own .She either is married or has a boyfriend . The pace of the movie(biggest drawback ) and rerecording form hurdles to the movement of the movie.
With all said and done i wud recommend u guys to venture out if u have loads of time hanging on u or have no other commendable job to do , cuz its definitely not worth managing time and postponing schedules

With less than a handful of technicians u know , and a shoe-string budget, all u could expect was a low profile love story that has a very low probabilty of enticing your taste buds .
But bang!!! director mishkin takes your heart for a ride on a few occassions . He just gives you the movie that is least hyped about and this believe it or not works for the movie . The movie goes at a good speed but keeps a low profile throughout except on a couple of occassions , where the screenplay peaks and so do you inevitably. The director had immense guts to break free from the usual image oriented movies that come out every alternate day and even break the shackles when it comes to parent sentiment .
I am not gonna be a spoilsport to spill the beans over to narrate the story . I want most of u to go throught the roller coster ride that i went through last night ( after watching the movie ) .
Now to sum up the artists who infuenced me hard that i wouldnt think twice to revere them . I wont be relentless to mention the director after the lead , cuz they say that the director is the captain of the ship and this ship has coasted safely and impressively too . He has in him the adept mind that is inexorable to a narrator . He makes the audience dance to his tunes. Then the lead pair narain ( aka sunil in malayalam ) and bhavana ( malayali too ) . They seem to have a good head on shoulders to carry this script neatly ( this is nothing new as we have seen that people from Kerala seem to have the natural talent that makes them get noticed wherever they go) . Narain and bhavana epitomise their respective characters , and makes you feel that they are THE best choice . The music director Sundar C Babu , proves his mettle with a duet and in-tune-with-movie kinda rerecording.Then its the camera work by Mahesh , who gives the whole movie the feel required and the picturisation of the duet is worth a mention.
The climax as to reveal the real narain was simply breathtaking . The movie ends though in a cliche format that kollywood has perfected over the years .
With all this with a good script and narration Chittiram Pesudhadi is a undoubted winner , but the crowds throng the theatres for the one and only song( topping any countdown ) by GANA ULAGANATHAN , without a reference to whom i cant write a review. He is the only reason the crowds thronged in and but Mishkin has taken ample care to see that people dont get just that .

Life has always been an oxymoron to me . But offlate it seems to be peaking . I just saw a packaged tour on CNN IBN about the adventure tourism of New Zealand organizing a couple of amazing tour iterinaries. Went online and checked the price and the plan came upto 40k , so was already contemplating it . Life had just taked me to the helm of imagination when this foto u see , slapped me hard .
I at one end am think of splurging upto half a lakh when that money can just feed a lakh children for a day . This is something thats been in my mind for quite some time as to where do i draw a line b/n the 2 .
I strongly feel that poverty during the youth is cruicification. Ur mind cant accept ur inabilties of being under normal . U see hedonistic life style on one side and on the other u struggle for a meal per day . Its like the mirror which u can see but cant have a solid form .
All u can do is curse God for having made this big a bias on different people, and claiming that all are his children. Its only the disbelief in God that would get better of u .
I think we should have job reservations in all the fields. I
completely support the PM and all the politicians for promoting this.
start the reservation with our cricket team. We should have 10 percent
reservation for muslims. 30 percent for OBC, SC/ST like that. Cricket
should be modified accordingly. The boundary circle should be reduced
for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered
as a six and a six hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs. An
OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.
We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like
Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player. Bowlers
should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to an OBC player.
delivery above this speed should be made illegal.
Also we should have reservation in Olympics. In the 100 meters race, an
OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.
There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let's recruit" - MITR
