Suing Kamal Haasan...!

I am going to sue Kamal Haasan for giving me ( and many others, for that matter) a complex..! an inferiority complex..a waaaaaaaay long inferiority complex!..Here is a guy who is around 55 plus looking so trim and fit ...and that too in linen shirts(though his face shows his age)...and me almost 20 years younger than him looking aaaaaggghhhh!!!!! (that was in stereo :-)

Saw "Vettaiyadu Villaiyadu" yesterday.Kamal Haasan's latest movie. After watching the CRAP (yes, its in block letters!) movies which the malayalam movie industry was churning out for the past few months, THIS IS THE MOVIE!(yes,this is also in block letters!) A movie I was hoping... longing to watch...sleek production,precise editing,beautiful music,excellent camerawork, beautiful Kamalinee(oops!) and Jyothika.Mallu directors please do learn how to make a movie..get help from Gautam Menon.(I am always of the opinion that the good mallu films all have gone with the demise of Bharathan, Padmarajan..!) Kamal Haasan is looking so good and he fits the role of DCP well.The story starts from Tamil Nadu, goes to New York and ends back in Tamil Nadu.Except for a brief spell in the second half the movie was so engrossing! The camerawork requires a special mention (Ravi Varma,if i am correct!)

Of the five songs of the movie ,my fav are "Partha Mudhal","Manjal Veyil","Uyirilae". All the songs are well sung...one listen will bring out those soft feelings we all have deep in our hearts! Guitars,Veena, Saxophone, Drums, Naadaswaram,Mouth Organ (there is another name for this musical instrument), all used so brilliantly... rhythm and melody a deadly combo... the songs are giving my twin-woofer tall speakers a workout... Harris Jayaraj...hats off to you! All catchy tunes! The other two songs are also good.. especially "Neruppe".The song.."Karka Karka" is ok for me... but i dont care much about rap...! My fav song being "Partha Mudhal"...good rhythm and lyrics..the beats in the begining made me think of Flamenco dancing.. ( or maybe because the picturisation has Kamalinee Mukherjee :-P ) And yes, she looks so good in the movie.We will surely be seeing her in more movies! Jyothika too did her role very well, but a little more emotion would have made it perfect.And the villain...so ruthless... so cruel... but then he has his own reason for his actions... but then don't we all have? Overall this film rocks..if the movie flashes in your mind even after one day after watching ...it sure rocks! A must see film..(a little gory in some scenes,though!) I am giving 9 out of 10 for this movie. Thank you Kamal,Gautham,Harris, Ravi Varma and the editor (I couldn't get his name!) for a movie which I loved and won't mind watching again.Thanks again!

At last I updated my blog...Onam is here...Wishing you all a very Happy Onam and "vayaru niraye mrishtanna bhojanam"

....and now who all are joining me to sue Kamal Haasan?
