When HOLLYWOOD is video GAME!



I find films released these days reminding me of old video games that I played, some of them are abandoned now. For instance I take two movies EXPENDABLES and A-TEAM, it’s not just the screenplay or heroic things they do or stuffs they carry its all of them matching with games. I’ll analyze both the movies separately in following paragraphs.


EXPENDABLES, Story line: A Group of 6 American guy with guns kills tons of soldiers of some weak country because they are going to save a girl whom is a native of that country fighting against growing illegal drug plant in her country by another wealthy American! as per standard book of “Hollywood reasons”  head of Expendables group likes the native girl, so they are to save her.
The climax alone is enough to state that this must be a movie on super natural powered guys like X-Men not guys with superlative intelligence and physic. This movie reminds me every much of Contra, Quake, House of Death, ____ Dragon which asks you to shoot/fight against weak gangs first and at end fight hard and tough against final enemy to find a girl kidnapped or bombs to be dismantled. Just like game hero guys kill tons of native soldiers, with no bullets of native soldiers hitting them (Super contra, Quake provides shield and extra life on putting cheats when just game starts). At last Villain takes the girl and then hero gets her back! Then they lived happily forever!!


A-TEAM, Story line:  4 American soldiers’ forms a team unknowingly on the go, their execution style and intelligence make them live legends. Often they’ll get caught and escapes out with top hands help, actually movie runs around American dollar plates/dyes that are stolen by terrorist and wanted by CIA agent. Unlike Expendables this movie runs with nice logic.
Only the screenplay makes me think it as a game, when a plan is dictated by the lead to his mates it is already half executed! Price of Persia, Hitman: Silent Assassination are some games that I can compare with this movie, both the game dictates the current/future level in a video format. If there is some other thing that I can compare with it is going to the availability of map, thrust guns that they get on the way which they need not carry. Know the rule of game every level brings you new weapon to use and bring new area (map) to attack and conquer which is available on Pause menu.


Both these films resemble very much like Counter strike!
Moral: DO NOT MISS A-TEAM, please SKIP EXPENDABLES even if you get free DVDs.

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…

Training @ Cognizant

I received my Date of Joining mail on 16 Oct 2011, I was so happy that finally I got that. I was the only one from my college to get the mail to report on that particular day so I went pretty much alone. I reported in MEPZ on Oct 20th from the next Monday my training began in Siruseri. I was able to spot many people who studied with me in school on the first day of Induction.
Initially I was placed in customized batch then was moved to Advance JAVA or J2EE in a generic term. I got pinned to IME vertical that handles clients related to Information, Media and Entertainment domain.We were trained in batches of 24, curse or charm I got into a batch with 20 girls! Whatever it didn't last for long, I was pretty much comfortable after getting out of it. My school was co-ed but classes were separate for boys and girls never mind 8th and 12th grades, where I was put into co-ed classes because I'm a good boy :P In college I remember studying together with girls nope remember seeing girls…
