AAYIRATHIL ORUVAN Could have been in parts


That movie which deserves 10/5!!! I'll be placing this about all time finacial failure, yet critically acclaimed. 

The much expected and the hyped film hit the screen of the eve of Pongal this year. As the songs of the film went places the film created big buzz in the Industry. The director himself had given some good films which added some more craze to it. Selvaragavan’s movie always had some kind of love making scene’s and this film have no low marks on it because it runs on Adventure. Story is based issue between Pandiyas and Chollas happened in 13th century and runs into fictional fantasy in today's world.

First half of the film runs on the Adventurous Trekking of the Peoples to follow the Cholas dynasties remains. Selvaragavan palns to showcase a Tamil movie in a way that it had not been shown, so decided the shooting to happen on a adventurous spots so his imaginative power took the film to Vietnam. Introduction of every important character is fine, so the first half is for a lot of fantasy and lovemaking. Second half starts of with a different note.

Second half must can be understood well if you can understand Tamil, by the word Tamil I mean pure form of Tamil. Actors have done their part in this session but editing and direction failed, gladiator like scene doesn’t fit in movie. Having said that the director had shoot the film for almost 6 hours it is definitely not easy to bring it to half. Some scene are not clear because of the editing especially the scene which show the hidden manhole were they try something like Hollywood(MAGNUS GOLD).

Attempt was alright but the film would have been clearer if it had been spiltted to two parts and I’m sure it would have gone places. But this kind of movies are in acute need for Tamil film Industry. Hats off to Selvaragavan and his group.

=>Songs were good; but scores are not fine More experienced Composer could have used.
=>No person can bring that much of Army to field across border Logical error!
=>Editing could have been even more good .
=>Graphics took too much of time but there is no little sign of excellence
=>Some many Pandiya characters, but so little to play! (wastage of characters).

$>Awesomatic proudness that you get after reading books like Ponniyin Selvan, Udayar, Gangai Konda cholan
$>Genius stroke by sending group of people across border to isolation, there by preserving their culture and tradition
$>Choice of actor for every role.
$>Sequencing of scenes.
$>Dramatical Story line, More point to Selva's imagination.

UPDATE: Bold indicates addition, Strikethrough indicates my misery
After reading Ponniyin Selvan, I can no longer hold my excitement - If there is uncut version available in DVD I'd buy it!!! I'm listening to Pemmane and Thaai thinra manne ... crying, metaphorically my heart sheds blood.

Up and Close with Sudalai Madan: The Encounter

Night of 13th April all the preparations for the rituals were done in the temple, Sudalaimadam swamies idol was decorated with flowers and fruits and coconuts dedicated to the lord reached above his chest.My cousin Sudalai muthu, senior priest of the shrine reached home by late night got blessings of his father Late Shanmugam Sundaram and blessed the family members in 8x10 room dedicated for God, then started towards the temple. There peoples in huge number were waiting for the Sudalaimada swamy's arrival. Different rituals were offered by people to the Lord in order to get the blessings. As its is believed Sudaimada swamy, son Lord Siva used to consume meat in Kailash for this reason he is sent to earth were he can satisfy his earthy hunger there by not polluting Kailash.

Offering meat to Sudalaimadan is the most important and an watchful event in the festival. Many devotees offer their goat & pig so as to please the lord and get his blessings. That midnight Sudalaimada swamy …

why do people sweat more in chennai???

One of the famous ornament of chennai is its summer!. Everyone here would have at least once talked about its effect and the way they affected. People comes out with sweats flowing from the body is the usual scene of chennai noon. The sweat produced is not just due to the temperature of the region. It is in fact due to the high humidity of chennai.

To explain this lets see a fact, people in chennai sweats more than the people in delhi where the temperature is higher than the former.

This is because of chennai's location. Chennai is located near sea due to which sea water evaporation is high during summer which in turn increases the humidity (Amount of water vapour present in air).
Normally human blood temperature is about 35 deg Celsius. If the outside temperature is more than that, then our system tries to automatically cools down by releasing sweat from the body.

The sweat which is released cools the surrounding heat by converting into vapour thereby reducing the body temperature…

Puththu kovilum Putho tilesum, as they are built

Its grand Aadi season here in Tamil Nadu wherever you  go you'd be followed by awful music from no mercy speakers. Yes this is the first post dedicated for it. Hindu is not a religion but it's idealism,  a way to unite people, that's perfectly constructed by assuming separate task to every God, no single God worship. Hindus moved from nature worship to idol worship, but that doesn't mean that we don't have nature worship we have created a idol for them and countinued to worship them in different form.

Snake is a beautiful reptile, I have made friend with few too... (got time? search my blog to know what I mean). Our ancestor found the nature law, 'every living creature on earth is important for the ecosystem to be balance'. Maybe to make sure snakes are not killed fearing their venom they made them as God too! Not just idol snakes, they are worshiped as they are at their conquered(from rats and termite)nest or puthu.

Lets not concentrate if snake drinks milk …
