Satyaraj, SJ Surya, Salman & Seattle

It’s becoming colder in Seattle. Its raining, windy and pleasantly cold. The kind of iira nilam that one would love to live. They have been telling me that as winter coses it, you would be terrible out of mood, blame it on the absence of sun. But for me it’s becoming the other way. I do enjoy the sun but the cold weather combined with semi-frequent coming of the rains. This evening it was so windy with rain drizzles that I had my spirits uplifted. A different kind of feeling, that for a moment, makes you forget projects, go-lives, status reports, MOMs and what not.

Offlate, I’m voraciously reading and unexpectedly all the books that were in a long library queue are just pouring in. Besides Ashokamitran’s Katuraigal Part 1, I’m having Rusdhie’s Shalimar the Clown on my left hand, Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat on my right hand and a lovely book that I wouldn’t disclose now. I want to certainly write a post on that special book.

Saw SJ Surya’s Ah Aha and namma Surya’s Ghajini. Ah Aha was loud, ugly and a sick movie. I’m planning to protest against Rahman tuning music for this dude. He has literally screwed up all the songs with crass creativity and glaring colors. The wide angle close-up shot is an overkill. The completely unrelated sentiment scenes seems to be targeted the thaaikulams while he was busy exploring the midriff of Nila. Does he think we are a bunch of idiots, watching his movie ? Ellyei !!

Satyaraj’s Englishkaran is one good movie in the recent times with some common sense. It’s typically a late 80’s flick with a storyline that we have seen a million times, Satyaraj’s satirical comedy rocks. If you can mock at the several happenings of Kollywood and Tamil Nadu politics, with a rehashed storyline, you could cast Satyaraj and make it into a hit, like this. Though we have seen similar movies from Satyaraj, watching truly crappy films from kollywood this year, this was a good time pass. The voluptuous Namitha portrayed as an athlete and she actually runs 100 meters in a tar road before she dies of the kollywood classic poison, arali vedhai. Though I’m not for this nuisance, I’m holding from cursing too much as Namitha Fans Association might actually protest to burn printouts of I ain’t ready for all that !!

    Are you planning a separate two-minute-review of Ghajini? Also, did you rent “Ah Aah” in Mayuri videos?

    You havent mentioned anything about Ghajini in this post! What was your perspective on that movie?

    Don’t you think Ah-Aha minus Surya would have been a watchable movie ??

    Brood Mood – Hee hee !!

    Vikram, Thanks for asking. I thought I could write about it in a seperate blog post.

    Ananth, Good question. Thinking about it, I think it should be a watchable flick if not a stupid flick like now. He actually spoilt the mood even during the start.

    Somu, Thaniya oru post ezhuthalaamnu irukken.

    Srkriz, You got it. After writing I thought a title and I could strike a balance and hence S,S,S & S. Someone actually did notice that. Good.

    Saw Ah Aah… I liked it. I’m glad that someone can write and produce a movie about relationship,insecurities,love,jealousy and understanding. I felt that it was different from typical HERO SAVES THE DAY kinda flix and SJS was realistic. He did go abit crazy with the colors. Thumbs up for the effort.

    oh yea..Namitha

    ((- just threw up inside my mouth.. ))

    Interesting view on SJ Suryah’s movie. I thought this was a good effort. It is definitely not a bad attempt. I agree with Tamilponnu on this. There is too much of SJ Suryah bashing going on and I think LG you also fell into the same trap. I rented this movie expecting the worst, but it was interesting and funny. I did write about this in my blog ( also.
