Film: Saarathi

This movie happened a while ago, writing is a little late. With apologies let’s start, the only reason I went to this movie was to pass time. & that for a long time (after Paramaathma mishap) not even one good movie was watched. Post Darshan episode, whenever I see him talking about women, respecting them in his movies, there is a weird feeling. That he is faking it, & “his acting is very natural” image is tarnished.

Darshan is riding autos, returning packages that were forgotten, fighting villains who break glass having ShankarNag’s photo, making police realize the amount of halkaness in them & having nightmares about killing his father. Meanwhile heroine is met, songs are sung, love starts & on the day of proclaiming, she is taken away by her sodharamaava to their heritage villa ayyo village.

Hero reaches village in search of heroine, a typical *who fights this goon gets the girl setup* & hero obviously wins it. After much ado, it is realized that hero is son of that village soil, who was misquoted of killing his father by his own chikappa whose son is going to marry heroine & heroine was already hero’s wife with parents exchanging vows when they were playing kunTabille. (anna ivLe nin sose)

Fights, fights & more fights. The reality is known to villagers who will kill chikappa & his son. Hero & heroine marry.

Full marks to Dinakar was an awesome swamake story (al though parts of it have been flipped from Telagu movies), neat direction (I hardly found any flaws), Darshan best in stunts & amazing dialogue delivery, Deepa – no comments (kindly stop taking her into your movies), whoever did the sets – great work, music hummable.

Any day better than Paramaathma

Why this Kolahala?

It’s a racist song. Yes that “white & back” song. That so called soup song; these tamizh guys keep bluffing about their language, how it is rich, BodhiDharman did that & this, yet they came up with soup song-aa? Why? Don’t they know its part of North Indian thaali?

OK agreed, some random guy wrote the lyrics as soon as Aishwarys (as Big B wrote Rajnikanth’s daughter) said that this song has to be fun-filled in ten minutes, & Dhanush in full feeling sang, why deliberately reveal it? & then claim, ashooo that was accidentally stolen & leaked. You have no confidence in your tune & lyrics & singer?

& all this million hits are total tricks. Post recording, & fake leaking the song, the daughter-aLiya duo went home & checked the views. Zero. Dhanush became sad & Rajni had to pitch in, his one click is equal to whatever hits on the page now *insert some na oru time something-something dialogue*

You so called we-wont-talk-in-other-languages-other-than-Kannada-in-November people, shame on you. Why are you listening, re-listening, downloading, and sending others via email, Bluetooth? Just flag hoisting is your Kannada prema is it? How much more baTTehari on this song huh? KannaDambe will never forgive you.

With much disappointment, I am off. To write “thiLi saaru” song. Bye

Which way? This way?

P.S: People with “why don’t you try GPS?” views are forbidden from reading this post.

Life is journey, you should know your destination & all they say, which are famous quotes but what they did not speak about is on “finding the address” to reach the end point. I have problems. Of course we all have, but I am speaking about “address seekers” & “address providers”, yeah “idhe. illi khanditha ondu samasye idhe” situation.

So many (read all) address seekers, stop their vehicles in the “middle” of the road all of a sudden!! Hello losers, kindly show hand signal & stop, halt at the extreme left side of the road, & ask someone around. Its not that you find people & you just stop, no! You park your car, get your ass off the vehicle & ask the address. That’s how it works

& what’s with people, who halt thier vehicle, won’t even bulge from the driver’s seat; yell at top of their voice “24th main yel baruthe”. Idiot, should the person doing you the favor come near you, smile, say hi & tell you the address? Why being so lazy?

Next worst set of people are the ones who stop at the signal light & ask address. Ones at the left are a little ok ok, but there are ones who are at the middle of the road, asking someone next to them which way to go, when the signal turns green thereby blocking the entire traffic behind them.

Too much worst are the ones who horn, & horn like crazy from behind, & if when you leave way, over take & come by your window (still driving remember) & ask the address. They totally freak me out. So stupid, it’s like they want to travel in the108 free ambulance & for that we will do anything idea. You die, why kill us?

If you are lost, almost going to die, & there is just one lady who could tell you the address & save you, still don’t. Never ask “a woman” address, period. Mikidhu nimge biTidhu.

In Chennai, actually in TN, if they say, go straight & take a right, then left, then left, you do the opposite. You go straight, take left, then right & again right. Voila, you will reach perfectly. But if you make a mistake of following what they say, you could be looping; that too infinite.

You hear to the address & never watch. As in hear the directions but never see where the hand moves, it will surely confuse you. The person says “take right” & bends his hand towards left. Always. So just stick to the oral way.

It’s a no-risk to ask the auto drivers, provided yours & his vehicles share the same state registration number. If your vehicle number says “KA” and his auto number starts with “TN”, you are gone. It’s like Guindy flyover. Round & round & round, uff thale suthu.

Also never go near a bus stop, where there is a huge crowd yelling the place you wanna go “Bangalore Bangalore Bangalore”. Chances that they might think, you are putting seat to your car & ask “200 saaar, please drop me” (Personal experience err not me Pati’s)

Then there are certain awesome people, who when asked address say “follow me” & take you there. They have taken “help strangers” advice from their teachers at nursery a bit too seriously. 

Oh got a call, someone calling to ask address. Ta

IT’S A GIRL!!!!!! :- )))))  - tweeted Abhishek. & thus started the paparazzi!!

Of the tiny soul, that doesn’t even know what lies ahead of it. It’s not even few hours old & has already been fed err force fed its share of love & hatred, both in equal quantities.

Information is wealth, yeah, but Indians need too much information. It’s a baby girl you tell, they wont congratulate you instead as “How many kgs”, “Delivery was normal or C-section” yada yada. For all these years this is what their expectations were, & hence media, maniac media was born. They wouldn’t mind climbing trees, hitting people, creating a stampede to get visuals & footage, just to claim they showed it first err on TV. Exclusive is the new mantra.

Ever since this revolution happened, people are force fed with news, & now they don’t like it (at least people I know with); they crib on how channels are funny on breaking news.

I say, everyone is in a state of confusion, no one actually knows what they want. When we get less we thrive for more, when we get more we vomit.

P.P.S: Wishing the mother, best of motherhood & father, err sleepless nights.

P.S: Hello mr.ACP (not my dad) yes I know you are a proud Indian, so am I! This is just a write-up :- )

BadkoLo Body

P.S: November post err strictly Kannadigas only. Rest wouldn’t understand

No pa, this is not a post on Jayalalitha/Karunanidhi/TamilNadu/KaveriNammadu. This is about a person who needs no introduction. But still I will take the ಕಷ್ಟ. He started his career as a sweeper err actor in some random movie, then started his “not-so- ಹಿತವಚನಾ” on ನಮ್ಮ ಅನಿತಕ್ಕನ್ channel. Then collected money in the name of some ಹೋಮ, got kicked out of the channel, joined ಸುವರ್ಣ & now is in zee ಕನ್ನಡ . The famous "Body ಭ್ರಾಮಾಂಡ", yeah Narendra Babu Sharma a.k.a known as "Dumma"

See initially when the show started he sat on a single chair, then they had to get him those ಮದುವೆ ಮನೆ bride-groom chair, now he fills completely into those wedding reception sofas, next I guess ಶಾಮಿಯಾನ-ನೇ ತರಬೇಕು. 

He was the pioneers in the "ಜನರ ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಮಣ್ಣು ಎರಚುವ" ಆಟ. He said "Keep a lemon in a glass of water & place it in the entrance of your home", if the immersed lemon goes up & floats then that means ನಿಮ್ ಮನೆಗೆ ಯಾರೋ ಕೆಟ್ಟ ದೃಷ್ಟಿ people visited. It was a revolution. Every other home did this, including the shops, hospitals & what not. Oh bars too (someone who goes to the bar said)

Next he said that he told the Reliance industries "ಮನೇಲಿ silver ಗೂಬೆ" ಇಡೋದಕ್ಕೆ. You should have seen the market it created to those small time goldsmiths, I remember ನಮ್ ಅಮ್ಮ ordered for one owl & it took 3 months for delivery. Apparently having owl in the puja-room will expand the heritage.  

He wants ಹೆಂಗಸರು of the house to wake up at 3am. ಸ್ನಾನ ಮಾಡಿ, ಸೀರೆ ಉಟ್ಟು, ತಲೆ ಬಾಚಿ, ಹೂವ ಇಟ್ಟು, ಬಾಗಿಲು ತೊಳೆದು, ರಂಗೋಲಿ ಹಾಕಿ, ದೇವರ ಮನೆ ದೀಪ ಹಚ್ಚಿ, ನಮಸ್ಕಾರ ಮಾಡಬೇಕು. All this within 5am. 

He wants ಗಂಡಸರು of the house to wake up at 5am (2hours extra sleep wow). ಸ್ನಾನ ಮಾಡಿ, you cannot go to puja-room directly with ಸುತ್ತಿರೋ towel, change to ಮಡಿ clothes, do ಪೂಜೆ then ask your wife to fall to your feet, tell ದೀರ್ಘ ಸುಮಂಗಲಿ ಭವ & then you can have ಕಾಫಿ. 

& if your wife serves you coffee in nighty, throw it on her face. Coffee: to be consumed only if wife is wearing ಸೀರೆ. Oh ho, if you are making coffee to your wife means ಅಷ್ಟೆ , ಅವನ ಬೈಗುಳ will make sure you get ರಕ್ತ from your ears. 

Oh someone also said, he has done some special puja, to all who scold him, I think I should stop. Please watch his program for more information (I am sure you wont)

College - Work - Marriage - Kids - Life

Just few years ago the discussions in friends circle was “Oh yel kelsa maadtidhya?”, “How is the pay?”, “Onsite opportunities idhya”.  & these days it’s just “Its baby girl” “How many kgs talks” . I obviously can’t say “Yeh sab kaise hua patha hi nahi chala”, coz its science, its nature, I know, even you should know. 

So after TT, Komi has become a mom, to a lovely baby girl.
New gen chicks have arrived.

I am already dreaming about attending these kiddo’s marriages. *wipes tears*
For further blogpost references the kiddos will be names, “Ruju” (TT’s) & “PunKo” (Komi’s)

I hear that Ruju wakes up whenever I call TT (excuse me, TT knows that cell phone should be in silent mode, that’s not the point). Even when the phone rings in the silent mode, she wakes up. We see a bondage here already.

Oh the boys in the gang are little lagging behind, (yeah blame the government for keeping marriage age of boys a little higher). Both the Ganeshas have let go their bhramacharya & are engaged. One is getting married in Dec & the other in March. Yes your congratulations will be delivered, gifts would have been better.

In other IMPORTANT news, myself & Dummu are visiting the mothers, clicking photos of the kiddos, are publishing to everyone. This is by far the closest we got in terms of “Jana Seve”. I see that no one who saw the pic even made an attempt to say “thanks for the pics”, they are just busy “awwwwww’ing”

P.S: Dummu I am so tempted to write about *that*

Being Angry cannot wait

Hello world,

I am back from a refreshing speedy holiday. Witnessing M.Sc race live was the highlight & of course the only reason I was at the debut Indian GP, detailed report on it later.

Before that need to put what happened on our flight back home; there was a guy next to me, dressed all corporate, and looking damn restless. The seat-belt sign & no use of electronic appliances were still on. & the moment air-hostess announced it can be used, he hurried, took his laptop from the cabin, switched on.

Otherwise am a non-intrusive person, I am the one who keeps mom & Pati’s comments of people at bay, but this guy’s impatience made me curious. I wanted to know what on world couldn’t wait for 15mins.

So the laptop was on, & you know what he did? Started playing “Angry Birds”!!! what is this world coming to bhawaan?
