Me: oru padathila irunthu Bit eduthaa thappaa??
Chimp: Thappilanga!!

Me: Oru padithila irunthu periya Bittaa eduthaa??
Chimp: Thappu maathiri theriyuthunga!!

Me: Neraya padathila irunthu neraya Bitta perusu perusaa eduthu??
Chimp: Periya thappunga!!

Me: ot***, athaandaa un padathula nadakkuthu!!

In a nutshell, that is Vallavan for u. Take some Selvi (am not kidding, I meant the serial only… the part where he woos Nayantara is a straight lift from it) mix it with Chandramukhi (Reema Sen’s act resembled Jyothika’s Split act in Chandramukhi), add that Rajni-Ramya Krishnan car scene from Padatappa, throw in some figures who show :) (meant in the literal sense), Kamal’s Anbe Sivam costume and add a pinch of Anniyan. Vallavan is a kitchidi of all the above.

Vallavan had the theatre in splits. The film was hilarious. We laughed at all the scenes, which were supposed to be sentimental!! :) Chimpu revels in his lifetime role and demonstrates why no person shud ever produce a film by him. Nayantara and Reema do what is expected of them :). Sandhya was ok, but I thought that she acted like Jyothika in some scenes!!

The worst factor in the movie is Chimp who jumps into advice mood every ten mins. Every time, his face comes into a close up, the audience groans. Guess, he shud stop taking pot shots at others, (there is a scene where he ridicules Dhanush) and concentrate on giving a good film.

Songs are not good when u compare it with Manmathan. Background was just about ok. Dialogues were yucky… sample this, “Firstla yaara love panroamnu mukkiyam illa, lastla eveloda irukkoam garathu thaan mukkiyam” :-X. Dialogue delivery by the actors were also pathetic. “Bedroom engae” dialogue by Chimp distinctly reminded me of “Bathroom engae”. :) His tone and rendition of the dialogue was such. Sorry Chimp, but assuming that having one matter scene in the movie and focusing the camera on some parts of females will be a hit among teens is sickening, to say the least.

Special appearance by Sr. Karadi in “Yammaadi aathaadi” song. Thalaivar konjam laesa iduppu aatinathila Tsunami vanthurumoannu naanga konjam pambittom!!

Storyline: Innumaa therinjukkanumnu aasai padareenga??

Vallavan ….. Nollavan!!

All said, U can go as a gang and enjoy the comments made by each other. The whole theatre was in splits yesterday. But again, as my friend remarked, “Coimbatorela muppathu rooba koduthu katharathu ok da. Aana nooru rooba koduthu katharathukku manasu valikkuthu” ;)

He sensed something uneasy in the neighbor’s house. He marched to that house with some trepidation. His anxiety increased with each step he took. But he badly wanted to find out what that was and trudged on. He went in through the gate and started looking around in the garden. It looked as though, there was no one in the house.

He finished looking around at the garden and started looking into the room, calling out “Avinash”. That was his neighbor’s name. As he peered into one room, he was shell shocked. Avinash’s head was decapitated and the whole area was a bloody damn mess. He immediately called the police.

The police came immediately and began their usual investigation. Since he was Avinash’s neighbor and also since he was the first person on the spot, they showered him with the usual questions, like “what was his job?”, “was he married?” and “did he have any enemy?” He told the police that he didn’t know anything about Avinash, except that he was a software engineer, and that he came home at odd times.

After some time, SP Krishnamoorthy came to the crime scene. He was known for his sharp eye to clues scattered around the crime scene. But here, he could see nothing in that area save for a deo bottle, a comb and some dresses. His mind started to form a vague picture as to how the crime would have taken place. A grim smile formed on his face.

After pondering on the case for quite some time, the SP became dead sure and closed the case as an accident.




Because of the “AXE EFFECT”

Remember the Deo Bottle??

Why me??

This happened a year back, when I was new to Bangalore. My tendancy is such that, I always try to learn something new, lose interest in the middle and just drop the same soon after. The same happened with Kannada language. With the help of my Bangalore friends, I managed to learn some kannada words like "Gothilla", "alli", "illi", "Hogi", "Koothkoli".... and a few other words. Some people had warned me that, the auto guys might fleece you if they know that you are not from Bangalore, i.e., if u dont speak Kannada.

I kept it in mind and the next time, I boarded an auto, I tried it and failed miserably. Here is that incident....

Me: Madivala Hogatha??
Auto guy: Koothkoli

Me: KPN Travels Gotha?
AG: Nange KPN travels gothilla. Dari gothidre, neene helu. Illa andre naanu ninana Ayyappa Devasthanake karkonDu hogthini. (Got this part translated by my friend)

Me: a blank look....
AG: Aenu sir??

Me: Gothill....
AG: Enna Thamizhaa?? Sollalaam sir, namakku thamizh theriyum!! Madivala Ayyappan Temple la drop pannuttumaa

Me: Hee hee.... appadiyaa, sari. Angayae drop pannunga!! (Ok, drop me there)

TOTAL DAMAGE for me that day!! :( :(
But now, I think I am able to understand a decent level of Kannada. :)

MOCK Interviews

As is usual in many colleges, our college also had training sessions on how to give an interview for different companies. We were given instructions on how to sit for the interview, and that a sitting posture which had us leaning forward was much better to a laidback posture. (I am not sure though, how it would be, if the interviewer was a woman, and I was leaning forward. :) ). Also we were instructed never to offer our hands first, but rather wait for the interviewer to offer his/her hand. Coming to the point, mock interviews were held to polish off all the sessions. This was the moment, everybody was waiting for. They simply could not wait to show off their newly acquired skills to the trainer. Here’s one mock interview from that day. This happened for real.

Interviewer: Good Morning, Ms. Y.
Y: Good Morning.
Interviewer: So, tell me about yourself. Why should I pick you for this job?
Y: Blah…. Blah…. Blah. Also, if you recruit me, I will be able to satisfy you.
Interviewer: In what way??

After a pause, the interviewer gave a big smile, and asked that girl never to dish out answers like the one she gave and that not every person will be a good man like him.

This Y was left speechless. I must say, that she was a topper in her studies, and don’t think she would have been accustomed to non academic questions like these.

:) :)

was reading a similar post in sidin's blog, when I remembered this incident.

"My life has been a complete Mess"

"I tried to bite more than what I could have chewed"

"Even my wife deserted me due to Work Pressure"

"But is this the only way out??"

"I could have sorted it out. Its too late to go back now"

His last thoughts before crashing into the ground from the 50 storey building was that, "I want to live"
