Nitya Kanni - M.V.Venkatram

Ahh....the book is too good.M.V.Venkatram tells a mythological story of a women , who has a special boon.The boon of being a virgin forever.Venkatram tells a wonderful story with it, actually i found out later that this was based on, one of the mythological branch stories of maha bharatha.But not taking any credit away from venkatram, He just turns that mythological story into a one, that portraits the power structure of our society and what's a women's role in that.He actually goes even further and talks about the mighty and the weak.A wonderful book.

Sayavanam - Sa.Kandaswamy

A beautiful novel. On the surface it looks like a detailed description of a man destroying a garden.But through various metaphors , Sa.Kandaswamy opens up the novel for various lines of interpretation.Excellent writing.

Nan Kadavul

Bala has done it again.He has shown the middle finger to the entire tamil film industry.He has broken all the conventional norms of tamil film industry to give one of the darkest tamil film ever.

Yes the movie wont run for packed houses, yes most of the english bloggers with trash it.That's because this is not a movie for the light hearted audience looking for a good time pass or mild intellectual discussion.If that is the case, you should stop with maniratnam, sujatha and kamal(probably watch anbe sivam again, with a slightly ugly looking kamal walking into the sun set with a stray dog).This is heavy stuff, this is bala and jeyamohan hitting you hard with reality.

The movie has its flaws,screenplay could have been tighter, could have avoided lot of repeat scenes from pithamagan, etc etc.But none of this matters as you wont be thinking about them, when the movie finishes.The movie will stay with you for a while and make you THINK AND ASK QUESTIONS.A rarity of rarity among tamil movies.Hats off to bala and jeyamohan.

A short summary of Enakul Oruvan

A short summary of Reincarnation of Peter proud

Comedies of Kamala Hassan

Watching Enakkul oruvan was a great experience. The movie is a full length comedy. checkout some of the scenes

I was so floored by universal hero's acting that i personally gave him an oscar.For someone who has mastered the art of handling heroines, Kamal seems to have problem when it comes to acting with mothers and sisters...

Oscar award 2...
Kamal hassan is confronting with his previous birth thoughts in this song.Check out the scenes in the first musical interludes following the winch scenes.Couldn't help but give him another oscar for this performance...

3)Indiran Chandiran and Moon over parador
