Survival toolkit

When Ajith did the magic of weight reduction, it was an incredible news in the media.

Now check out this guy who weighed 100+kgs when ‘Boys’ got released… Nakul, Devayani’s brother, is having such a slim look for the lead role in a new movie titled ‘Kaadhalil Vizhundhaen’. Now that two of his ‘Boys’ mates have gone up in their ladders, he might have decided to survive in the industry by reducing his weight to this extent. If this heroic look really helps him to hit the bull's eye, he should thank his slimming instructor for that.

This makes me to believe some of those Slimming outfit ads, in which they proclaim obese weight shedding by their beautiful ambassadors :-) :-) :-)

Sillunu Oru Kathal - Review

This is the first time, it has happened during these last 18 months of my blogging. I didn’t post my movie review immediately after watching the movie.

It happened so, that I didn’t want to spend time for writing on this movie, amidst my tight schedule. After the hype surrounding the star couple’s wedding, the movie might have been over booked during the first week. However, debutant director Krishna has not provided a strong screenplay to keep that momentum going.

The director has started the movie in the style of ‘Roja’ and ‘Dum Dum Dum’. The village belle gets married to the hero and leads a happy life. After couple of years, she gets to know about his past and decides to fulfill his forgotten wish [to spend atleast a day with his former lover]. Krishna ends the story with a traditional ending.

Surya and Jyothika had done their best, to uplift the movie, eventhough Bhumika Chaawla couldn’t help much. She reminded me about my previous post, when she replaced Asin for this role. I doubt, whether Asin would have done a better job in this role, since the characterization is not that touchy.

1) AR.Rahman’s music and some good picturisation by RD.Rajasekhar.

1) Screenplay [especially, the weak love blossoming scenes and lot more…]
2) Vadivelu’s unnecessary presence and humour which don’t evoke much laughter

So, the movie has proved that ‘Melting titles’ need not make the movie a cool sweet one, as we had discussed it before.
