Blockbuster Review: Viswaroopam (Tamil Film) – Gallant Gusto!

To begin with, let’s get the dialogue right. Q: Was it worth the hoopla? A: No. Pertinence of few hopelessly wounded individuals lay squashed beneath. Q: Did it have enough to be termed as the ‘Blockbuster’? A: To a large extent, yes. Except the narration (in the second half) that could have been crispier andContinue reading “Blockbuster Review: Viswaroopam (Tamil Film) – Gallant Gusto!”

Blockbuster Review: Kadal (Tamil Film) – Waterplay!

It’s not the typical Mani classic, neither would it fall in the lap of a run-of-a-mill commercial bolt. It plunges in to a zone that’s spurred by moments of brilliance and has Mani’s baton in patches of singing waves. I have stated for sometime now and I continue to echo. Filmmakers make, create, introspect, visualiseContinue reading “Blockbuster Review: Kadal (Tamil Film) – Waterplay!”

Blockbuster Review: Django Unchained – Ruffled Business!

A periodic flamingo ahead of a civil war with a solitary government prognosis and an aid who threatens the very existence of an inevitable black with an improbable quest to bisect the native world with a penchant of pursuance with audacity.

the tale of a pulsating cricketer..

As a youngster, his name was Jesus to my ears. I celebrated his hundreds with madness, yelled at his dismissals and cried when his tons weren’t enough to canter home. I still remember my mom commenting with a disappointing tone – “your love for him supersedes that ought to be reserved for me”. “He isContinue reading “the tale of a pulsating cricketer..”

Yashji..

A filmmaker transcends boundaries, surpasses eras and redefines cinema. Yash Chopra just did that. And yet, to survive with a glimpse of fortitude requires ability and a deep understanding of the connoisseur. Hailed as the ‘Baadshah’ of romance, my picks would surprise almost many as I believed in his more rustic approach of filmmaking whichContinue reading “Yashji..”

I see an era of extinct moss..

Greats in all fields reign supreme and flourish with blemishes of floundering magic. I have seen and admired few, and continue to revel upon couple of them. Yet, such characters become an inevitable part of our lives, and in sport, we call them legends. 2012 has been one of those years that epitomized solo goodbyesContinue reading “I see an era of extinct moss..”

As I watched Gayle’s exploits at the Premadasa while the Windies lifted the World T20 championship, the glares of the past could be seen lingering within. Can’t say ‘ghosts’ since any sport and its defeat stand distraught in terms of performance and the characters that hugely inflict the impact of such profound greatness. Dad chippedContinue reading “as the calypso sang..”

Barfi! – Sweet..

Landscapes woven out of an artist’s dream, streets that flush meadows in daylight, people who appear and are human, love that has touched the arms of divinity. ‘Barfi!’ is straight out of a folklore that doesn’t exist. Rather, you and me don’t know if it ever did. In the last 15+ years of Indian Cinema,Continue reading “Barfi! – Sweet..”

romantics unleashed – an amateur classic!

a new arrival terms the beginning of an evolution, budding flowers blossom meandering fragrance amidst vane, fewer mortals discreet farther feathers, yet, I love to fall and emerge unravelled. tinsel town connotes me at a level of subjugation, a celebrity of self invokes within.. gallops like highwayman when confronted ballistically, quiver, shiver and smell theContinue reading “romantics unleashed – an amateur classic!”

Satyamev Jayate: Slogan or statement!?

If I wander across borders in search of peace, will I get quantum or suffice the unknown elements of this planet? My school gave me the assets that defined the lanes of my life, but conspicuously, they were intangible. Guess, meant to be that way. Present talks language that preach the fetish collages of ourContinue reading “Satyamev Jayate: Slogan or statement!?”
