Sivaji Vs MGR - How Many Days in BO

hey gud day to you, hmmm finally had the satisfaction of watching thalaivars (HEAD) movie on the first day. Too much hype, too much expectations from my side and the fans, the movie sure meets them all. This movie includes in it the tangy taste of Shankar, Rajni & Rahman, n surely shankars technological aspect takes the lead.

Ok here goes ma review for the movie, no movie is comparable to this one. Whoah the music got released with so much controversies where three songs got released over the net before it was actually released with a celebration, who knows its just because they wanted the media to create an hype and obviously increase the fans n even laymans expectations and sure it did. So many dates for the movie release, hmmm sure Shivaji did use the tactic well during its pre-release.

Ok the movie, was simply superb, me gonna rate it on different aspects,


Style, Action, Comedy - 10 outta 10 (He did his job thats what was wanted from him)

Dance - 8 outta 10 (he did far more better than his prev movies and with the technology along side made it feel even more better)

Fighting - 7 (Nah hes flying all over ppl, i have seen that already in matrix, it suites for that movie and not yours Super Star, its always a single man army, ratio 1:100, wish i had so much power)


Direction - 8.5

Story - 6.5

Post Production - 9.5

Songs - 10 (No one can do better than him, remember the mudhalvan, boys stuff, he does the same but with different themes)

Screen Play - 6 (Man the second half ruined the whole show, very shitty, not the typical shankar stuff)

Costumes & Expenditure on Sets - 10 (He gave the actors the best they can get)


Music - 8.5 (Too much of technology spoils the naturality, meant the digitalisation of his music)

Lyrics - 10 (Obviously he hasnt scored the lyrics, the music goes so good with those lyrics, with the rap/hiphop, melody and so many such mixtures)

Typical A R Rahman Hits, goes very good with the latest technology and trend.

"Too many hands spoil the broth" or "Too much of anything is good for nothing"

I meant the trio in here, leave Rahman, he has done his part. The other two, nah they not the right pair for movies, cos there is a different line of expectation for shankar and rajni individually. Shankar ruined his reputation in this movie, sure movies donot have a reality thing in them, atleast showing something artificial in reality pulls the movie goers. In this movie the whole thing is ruined, shivaji is dead and is alive again after being dead for more than 5 mins, and what they do is just an electric shock (defriblation) to save him, and this is the turning point in the climax. Man it was horrible to see that scene.

There were unncessary scenes in the second half, the Car Fight, very shitty, when would Indian movies stop making such scenes, Shivaji has a Prado and that is all. Wheareas more than 50 cars come n bash him up and nothing happens to shreya n rajni. He bowls them all in the end like the bowling pins. really sick.

The positives, shivajis luxurious life and his heart to help build a better India, pleases every INDIAN. Shreyas costumes and dance grooves sure steals the heart. Rajni and vivek duo are the base for the whole movie, they bully each other, they joke about themselves and man rajni becomes white, blond and as usual young and and and and hes Mottai BOSS( Samuel Jackson) in the end, Now hes MGR not shivaji. So many faces , so many different styles takes on the whole show and surely keeps the movie in the BO for months together, which can be ruined by Kamals dasavadhaaram.

First half full n full comedy sure makes us glued onto the seats, second half is all about shivajis fight back with a lil tinge of comedy makes the people think "wish the interval was a little more than the usual". Watch it people sure rajni makes us move with his style, rahman with is awesom score, shankar with his talent on picturisation and even the smaller details, vivek with his comedy.

whoah i missed out the villain, this guy is new, huge and only with his smile and dialogues makes us believe hes a villain, sure is a talented villain. Delivery of his dialogues are good. Yeah theres also a guest appearance, guess whos that.... its nayanthaara , shes hot and steals the first song with her grooves. The first song is full of surprises where shankar enters into the scene wit a cellphone and all he had to do was throw his cell. ha ha ha

The laughing and cheering crowd in the first half seemed very silent in the later part of the second half. Think they realised its the OLD ways of Indian movies where the HERO lives and obviously saves the world.

enjoy..... ;)

Total Rating : 7.5 outta 10

sorry rajni n shankar fans :(

PS: Check out for the scene where rajni mimics Sivaji Ganesan, MGR n Kamal. simply superb.

Check out his techniques to become fair, man couldnt stop laughing.

You are NEXT - Another Deja Vu but good

Hey me becoming a movie buff already, don't know whats happening with me. I saw a new movie without stepping into the theatres, I hung onto this movie called NEXT by Lee Tamahori.

In the movie Deja Vu (already there), Denzel gets into three roles one in future, present and one in past. What on earth was the director Tony Scott thinking. Theres a big technoscientogadgetohugo machine that makes you transit between future and the present. Whoah we are in '07 people, these stories are all done with the 90's.

Nicolas Cages last movie the bike rider lol "Ghostrider" punished everyone of us, who watched the flick with so much expectation in the theaters. It was utter rubbish. But in this movie 'NEXT', Nicolas Cage has powers to rehearse his own life. He does it so good along with Julianne and Jessica Biel.

Nicolas is so good in the movie with his tactical moves and action scenes, the best part is where he dodges the sniper bullet, great scene. Nowadays hollywood movies are bringing a little of sentiromanto feel into the scene. Totally theres not much of a story line in the movie but the screenplay is good enough to keep you awake and guessing what would happen the next 2 minutes.

Have fun watching this movie You Are NEXT.

P.S: Had a doubt, can he only foresee for just 2 minutes into the future or is it like for long hours. Just cant figure out from the movie

Oceans 14 is Awesum!!!! Read That Again

he he he oceans 14 whens it getting released???? .... man oceans 13 wasnt a big expectation from my side but well yes i did want to watch tht movie soon as it got released and i did so with not much of expection since the xpectations were ruined by oceans 12 which wasnt in the same line as 11 did.

the crew i love them for their cool way of doing stuffs each one in their own way...frm reuben to rusty, man they rock with their witty dialogues expressions, cos they r the stars of hollywood(pitt clooney damon....garcia). hmmm yeah one of the better appearances goes to al pacino who rocks the whole scene thru' his hypocritic ideas n cool new gadgeto systems to secure his casino, sure had a great part on him.

its huge, its the same old thing they do, but with a different style of looting the casino, the five diamonds its what the director steven soderberg and the crew get for this pure piece of fun and con idea. they rock....

get them watching, they r great....hope 14 is getting released in 2010.... waitin for tht.. it wil b a long wait

Last King Of Chennai - Its Moi

Am not gonna be like IDI Amin. many say hes a cannibal and i do believe on that. Ok lemme get clear on this, u think am blabbering. ok me speaking about the Idi Amin an army officer turned president of Uganda in 1971, he was well known for his ruthless use of power n persecutions more than 500,000 in his regime. How did i know so much about him, i saw this 2006 flick "The Last King Of scotland", bows to the director Kevin Macdonald.

He has characterised the story in such a way he brings a young doctor Nicholas Garrigan layed by James McAvoy to uganda to practise, this guy is a perfect playboy, wherever he goes, he keeps his hand on. Even keeps his hand on the prez's wife(one of his wives), so children keep away from this movie.

Idi Amin played by Forrest Whitaker, man i dunno who does the casting and stuffs at the background, whoah no one could have done so good in place of Idi Amin, he spoke, acted and did everythin as amin would hav done. and thats why he gets an oscar for his complete work of art in '07.

This is a movie that every1 needs to watch. Its great and filled with terror and obviously with the playboy its fun. Enough of me telling stories now, go watch it now and comment on it... hav fun

MAY wasnt MAYHEM it was FUN

Hey back to blogging.... I feel so sad that am not able to update my blog frequently these days... Eventhough I spend most of my time online, i don't get to blog. Okies lotsa stuffs happening with me and around me. My college got over finally and am a freakabackamackachackaliciously doing nothing but roaming around. Last month May was real hectic, I was fully occupied with my tours. he he he was at home jus for a week.

When the month started I went to Kodai with the best of my friends, my school mates. We rocked totally. Having fun almost every second, fun with Big J, Han , khad, Captain, komodo and ASH my bestest of people to hang out with. We were in Kodai and all we did was eat and roam around. It was very crowded around this time of the year. We went to all secret places and so we missed the crowd. Never knew Kodai had places like Vattakaanal, Berijam Forest, we enjoyed even a night watch at the observatory. Four days and three nights were so good. There were so many eeeny tweeny moments which will make us cherish all through our life and esp the things happened around Big J. lol hes the only one who can make it happen.

Hmm ok after coming back had my exams, the final semester was real tough with two subjects(that was sarcastic) but anyways I screwed up and got real low marks. After my exams I was sent to Bengalooru in search of a better job, but the best part was I couldnt stop myself from getting around places in Bengaloooru. Its such a beau place and along with came my sisters and vas. We went to all the places in Bangalore, window shopping and dragging my sisters who halt at every petty shop.

It was a week I stayed over in Bangalore at my sisters place before I got a call from my college mates, who invited me for a trip to south of Tamilnadu and a bit of Kerala. I have done so many trips down south during my cycle rallies but this one was the best. So many places, went to theni to my friend Ramkumars place, these were the 4 longest days cos I missed my cell phone back in Chennai and lost all my contacts ;( , again had a trip to kodai, yeah I know its way too much for a person to visit the same hill station twice in a row, couldn't help it. We went to rams estate in Kerala the second day, the climate was extraordinarilycharminglychimingly beautiful. We were a team of 15 and its huge for a trip so it was really a thrillride with my guys. From there the next day we went on a trip to Munnar, visited all the tea estates, waterfalls and so on. The last day we had a tour to Madurai to the theme park which wasnt even in competition to our Chennais theme parks. Anyways it was for Madurai, we had to get in. It was a water theme park which had no deep diving areas, but we did enjoy the water rides and especially the ship aka Columbus ride which made us real dizzy.

The day went off with a visit to the Madurai Meenakshi temple, the whole tour was organised by Ram and his father who inspite of his busy schedule was with us the whole 4 days. The time came to bid farewell to his family and leave to chennai. I reached home and had to take over the online pending jobs I had to do, the usual checking of mails and the timepitchingstupidolicious site which drags most of my time, ORKUT.

I really missed my family in all my tours, my friends over in Chennai whom i had promised for a getogether with them. But had to loose something to gain something. ANYWAYS MAY was fun fun and fun...... kudos to all who made it happen....

love you all
