Dasavadharam – My view

1. Dasavadharam is a nice movie if you do not assume you are intelligent than Kamalhassan and accept the reality πŸ™‚ As a Kamal fan I was completely satisfied. It was worth the wait.

2. In ‘Indian’ movie there will be a dialogue ‘Sathyam Theatres la Schindlers list nu oru arumayana padam. Theatre la yaarume irukka maatanga. Polaama?’.

3. MMKR, Anbe Sivam etc with which so called intelligent people are comparing this movie to, were flop movies.

The above statements might may or might may not be related.

Should I say

Wow or Oh no?
Arasaangam has received a good review. Pavithra says the movie is a pleasant surprise. What does a captain fan expect?

1. Bunch dialaag
2. Superhuman fighting
3. Gabtun dalking and walking englees
4. Dance

Fingurs graased!

Machi and Machinichi Statistics

Today evening while watching Thalaivars Vettayadu VeLayadu I observed this.

Actual Movie Duration – 2 hrs 37 minutes
Movie Duration in Sun TV -4 hrs 9 minutes
Advertisements – 40 minutes.
News* – 42 minutes

Movie was between 6.03-6.17, 6.24-6.41, 6.48-7.05, 7.11-7.26, 8.00-8.18, 8.25-8.40, 8.46-9.06, 9.13-9.26, 9.32 to 9.43, 9.49-10.02 and 10.08-10.12

Advertisements were between 6.18-6.23, 6.42-6.47,7.06-7.10,8.19-8.24,8.41-8.45,9.07-9.12,9.27-9.31,9.44-9.48,10.03-10.07

On an average, an advertisement lasted 20 seconds. So totally, we had to endure close to 144 advertisements (Not different advertisements)

The advertisement break can be split into two parts

1. Generic advertisements
2. Adverstiments of sponsors, who sponsored for the movie telecast. E.g. Castrol.

So, on every advertisment break you get to watch general advertisement for first 2 minutes and then the advertisements of the sponsors. Finally, just 1 minute before movie resumes Castrol Active’s ad was shown, followed by other advertisements for a minute.

Every time the movie resumes, it starts some 10 seconds before when it actually stopped. Continuity?

*-I didnt calculate the actual news duration and the advertisment duration during the news break. All times in P.M., IST.

Orkut Banupriya Association

Orkut is acting Ramadoss. Sorry, acting crazy. I get notifications that someone has scrapped, but there is no scrap. Silly orkut.

Yesterday I was watching this movie ‘Chathriyan’. Its a moive starring two of my favorites ‘Captain’ and Banupriya. But this movie got released before Captain became Gaptun. So there is no fun. On the contrary, it is a treat for all Banupriya fans. Do you like the song ‘maalayil Yaaro manadhoadu pesa’? It is one of my alltime favorites.

Thoovanam is a movie which does not have any item number, separate comedy track, fight sequences or punch dialogues. What starts off as yet another love story, surprised me in the second half. Actually I am finding it quite tough to review the movie without revealing the plot. It is not a suspense movie, but the second half and climax is something that I least expected. These are my views.
