Fragile World

We blame nature for its unforgiving atrocity. But who built the world so fragile that it breaks even after moderate rain. Is science/man not developed enough? Though we know rains, cyclones and tremors are very much possible, we don't provide space for them, when we build cities/buildings. So when those relatives visit us, everything breaks. Why cant we build broad roads with proper drainage systems, no crossings at all(flyovers can do), etc... Why cant we build short buildings with design strong enough to accommodate one of our biggest relative, say a 10 Richter quake or a 500cm rain or a 100 miles tornado?

But it is very important for a Bangalorean to go through this experience of Rain affected Traffic congestion, so as to make him feel to be in heaven when he has to live with the regular unacceptable and normally intolerable traffic congestion.

Though I suggest flyovers, they are vulnerable - I agree. Especially Hosur Road it's enough just to join the service lanes with the main road, so that the unnecessary chaos caused by artificial load-balancing and the space wasted for the sewage system which never helped during the rains could be put to use.

Caught in a Rumor?

If you are the chewing gum in the teeth of people, does it necesarily mean you are a ViP? Not neccesarily! I was caught in such a rumor among my classmates, not once but many a times. Always I feel that it was done to cause harm to someone else and I get harmed in the process. And in the end I become notorious(famous?) too.

Its like if Sachin is rumored to have nexus with a bookie/bar dancer/..., I have been in that book makers role too often. But when will the day come for me to be the maestro myself?

Does it stands upto its hype? For me - Not at all.

The new kind of Amnesia(a concept from 'memento' - English) and the life of such a patient provides some food for thought. But otherwise its plain, boring movie. It never made my pulse race, which it should have been - if its got to be a thriller. Asin brings in some pep. Also she looks to be the protagonist more than surya. Her heroics of saving girls from kidnappers is the key element of the movie. But as it comes as a flashback, We know that she is no more even before we see her.

Being Rich is portrayed as a quality of the Hero, did not appeal. Hero can be rich but being rich is not heroism. Nayanantara?! Climax leads to boredom. But the fight had some good shots but... At times it feels like Aalavandhaan.. The amount of gore increased my aversion towards the movie.

Except for the amnesia nothing stands in my mind. The same 'mental disorder' in a humorous plot would have appealed more to me. Gajini invaded again and again until he won(i'm bad in history), but sanjay ramasamy didnt win at all. Final word - dissapointment.

Also saw Anbe Aruyire (ah aah, Best Friend, BF) - would have been a good movie had he avoided those double meaning dialogues and disgusting scenes. Probably suryah thinks it to be his USP.

Is this a season for mental illness - Chandramukhi, Anniyan, Gajini, Anbe Aruyire, ... Makes me Mad. Waiting to get wet in Mazhai and meet Vallavan with Maja. Let me hope that its going to be a vettayadu villayadu for me.
