How would you react if MK Azhagiri addresses a conference on ‘Apple iPhone’ instead of Steve Jobs? Or if Loose Mohan writes the foreword for a book on DK Pattammal?
Thats the feeling one gets after watching the program ‘aNu aLavum bayam illai’ on Vijay TV. The program is like this. There are a bunch of TV artistes, who are supposed to perform some acts of bravery. Bravery does not mean dare to ask MK or Yedyurappa if Cauvery problem is going to be resolved. Or ask JJ if she would like to watch ‘Crazy thieves in Palavakkam’.
Fun apart, are they going to conquer ‘Mount Everest’? No. They don’t even conquer St Thomas Mount.
They have to do things like cross from one wall to another with help of a rope (Add a dozen helpers, ambulance for emergency situation, bed and sand cushion in case they fall down). So if you jump from one wall to other, then you are brave and you have no fear. There are some more amazing games like walking on a narrow wooden plank for 50 metres (Ofcourse with a lifeguard and 10 people around). If you do all this you are brave.
Funniest part is they replay (With english ezhavu music) when someone commits a mistake, as if it is the magic ball that bowled Mike Gatting. One soplaangi lady fell down from 3 feet and sprained her ankle. Immediately ambulance rushed in and she was interviewed from within the ambulance. That peter soplangi spoke as if she sustained a major injury while conquering mount everest.
As usual this program is aruthufied(anchored) by Anu Hassan, with amazing running commentary, who thinks wearing all black means being brave. Well only a brave person will wear all blacks in Chennai( Please exclude men in black like captain). Watching Hollywood movies in Tamil is a much more braver act than what these clowns do.
Did I tell you that this program is sponsored by some Parvathy hospital who specialize in Orthopedic treatment? Maybe Kilpauk Mental Hospital should have sponsored this program.
‘aNu aLavu bayam illai’ should have been named as ‘thuLi kooda mooLai illai’. Rejetted!
