Tamil mass heroes = loss heroes!

It is a widespread fact that Tamil films are not doing well for the past 2-3 years. Very few films are achieving success and our super heroes are the ones suffering the most.A quick look at the top heroes recent success rats is more than enough to showcase this truth.
Ilayathalapathi vijay is having a poor run for last 3 years. All his fan support is going in vain as all his films seem to have the same story and the same fate at the box office.After pokkiri in 2006 all his films are big duds.Azhagiya tamizh magan  didn't run well as it was neither commercial nor had a proper story.After that came kuruvi(2008) , villu(2009) which were big flops which started questioning the actor's credibility as the box office king. Vijay's next venture with sun pictures fared decently at the box office mainly due to sun pictures advertising and promos.The actor's next film is sura where he is trying to straighten is campaign.

Ultimate star ajith always takes a film at a time and tries to give a different product every time. After Billa, a big blockbuster came Aegan, an action comedy,remake of srk's main hoon na  , which didn't run well. Then came aasal , the usual don story, which had an average fare in the box office. Ajith's upcoming film is announced to be a cop story.Hope he strikes a winning rhythm.
      

Slow and steady "Chiyan" vikram as he is fondly called puts a huge amount of effort in every film he works in.After the blockbuster anniyan in 2005 , he worked for 3 years in bheema.But bheema didn't produce the desired results and ended a flop.Then he came as a cop and superhero in kanthaswamy which was heavily criticized and didn't fare well as proclaimed.He is acting in Mani ratnam's asokavanam and raavan and has raised high expectations of the film.
      
Actor surya maybe the only one who tasted success in these years.His film Vaarnam aayiram although slow was well received and appreciated by audience.The next one, Ayan was an action blockbuster and surya's fame increased.Aadhavan raised everyone's expectations and although dissapointed some still showed a success which was rare in the other actor's films.Surya is promising with his new look in singam.
                                  
The main reason for big heroes film flopping is likely due to the lack of emphasise in the story and acting.Unnecessary importance to formulas,cast,style and glamour has led to these losses.But at the same time ayan , a shrewd action film has won because of the story. So, there is still cope for our heroes to make it big!!!!!

Mahanati Hangover

There is something about this movie. It has invigorated the romantic in me and stirred me so much that I have no option but pen my thoughts on it. It is not that the film is without flaws – the ‘innocent’ phase of savitri tests our patience , the film maybe guilty of being too in love with its protagonist and background score was sometimes just TOO loud and it ( perhaps understandably) hesitates to go too deep into the character’s psyche or action. However , the film soars above because of only one reason – Keerthy Suresh.
Right before I had the lucky opportunity to watch this movie (twice) , Keerthy Suresh was my least favourite actress. Maybe because she acted in Bhairavaa , Remo and Thodari – the three worst films inflicted on mankind. Maybe because she was more Loosu than ponnu in her loosu ponnu roles. She isn’t typically glamorous or stylish ( not that I particularly care) nor did she show any acting skill which would warrant her inclusion in all the latest films. Until now.

She…

ek gaon mein ek kisan raghu thatha! :P

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…

Pitch dark

A shadow has crept over my soul Inching through my defences Making me darkness herself I wallow in grief over things lost In the invisible bonfire And try to survive on the warmth of embraces Of kindred spirits Only that it feels like a stranglehold And I push them away with a Weaponized tongue and my newfound strangeness Friends and foes are all the same Only difference is the name. I burn through whatever light I get Worried I might never see again In haste I commit little crimes
And wallow once more again.
