2 New Reviews, 3 New Releases

Reviews for Ullam Ketkume and Dancer are now online at bbreviews.

Looks like 3 movies, Priyasakhi, Dhaas and February 14, are releasing today. More interestingly, all 3 of them have something going for them.

- Dhaas sees Jayam Ravi trying for a hattrick of hits after Jayam and M.Kumaran.

- Priyasakhi has Maddy and Sadha and is helmed by K.S.Adhiyamaan, whose movies Thottaachinungi and Sornamukhi(Thanks Ram) handled human emotions and relationships sensitively. The melody-rich soundtrack also points to a soft, non-masala movie.

- February 14 stars Bharath, who is also going for a hattrick of hits after Chellame and Kaadhal.

Its been quite barren in the Tamil film landscape since Anniyan hit the screens last month. So, in a couple of weeks, I'll once again have some movies to look for when I go to the video store!

Ram, As of now, 'Poovaar Senni Mannan','Pooerukonum' and 'Muthu Natramam'(wonderful ensemble singing!) are my favorites..but all the tracks are slowly growing on me..A truly groundbreaking effort by the maestro!

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

hey balaji:
this is not the first time I am visiting here, have been visiting here for a long time to read your reviews, have never commented here before though. I have blogrolled you in my blogsite. Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughtful comments.

Hey Balaji..

It doesn't look like "Daas" made it this weekend. Instead "Englishkkaran" did.. I know you were looking forward to Satyaraj's 'lakalakalaka' bit! :-)..

Personally, I haven't seen enough commercials or advertising for "Daas" anywhere.. and it would seriously been a Renuka Menon overdose for one weekend :-).. She reminds me of Kavya Madhavan with a smaller face and less heavier.. I find neither one terribly attractive.. You can also add Sadha to that list.. very very Saadha looking heroine with even fewer prospects of making it in tamil cinema.

I'll take Jo anyday.. or even the plumpier-after-pregnancy Simran too! :-)

Two words of wisdom for you Balaji..
February 14 was (expectedly for me) horrible and a quite a good case for understanding the process of B-filmmaking. Priyasakhi was bad too. But Feb 14 stands out.
for u, its all like some official work to watch all these movies. I admire at the way u happen to watch all-a-them with such determination!! Kudos.
