Sun TV and Kushboo

Sandhya pointed out in an email that both of Sun TV's special movies for Vijayadhasami have a Kushboo connection. She acts in Minsara Kannaa while she is the producer(and her husband Sundar C., the director) of Giri.

Thinking back to Minsaara Kannaa, she plays a headstrong woman with misguided values(she hates men because of something that happened to her when she was young) who eventually has some sense knocked into her. Hmmm... Sun TV indulging in some subliminal messaging here?!!

Sun TV-ku ivlo arivelaam kedaiyaadhu...kaena pasanga avange...naamale pesikka vendiyathu thaan!

my favorite spoof of SunTV was when a blogger (just cant recollect the name...damn my memory) wrote something like, "At this rate, Sun TV will announce, 'Vaikkunda Ekadesi-yai munnittu Thamizh Thiraiyil Mudhanmuraiyaaga 'Thulluvadho Ilamai!'" :)

My Mom actually took offense when they once announced, "vinaya chathurthiyai munnittu unnai kodu ennai tharuven" she was like, "what the hell does vinayakar have to do with ajth's love story!"

I agree with ram. SunTV and subliminal dont go in the same sentence. After they showed burning of Kushboo's posters, women with brooms shouting slogans etc. there is no need for any subliminal messaging. Sun TV is shameless DMK propaganda. Namma thalaiyezhuththu, if we thought we escaped Doordarshan with the advent of sat tv channels they turn out to be nothing better than party propaganda machines.
I wish we had more options than just Sun in US like Vijay, Raj etc. Who knows? I hope Vijaykanth doesnt link up with Vijay :)

ram, I wish someone comes out with a spoof of Sun TV news too. I watched it a couple of times and had a good laugh. Something along the lines of

"
thiruvallikeNiyil erumai maadu mutti iruvar bali

T.Nagar potti kadai oNdril mugamoodi koLLaiyar pugundhu koLLai..

and so on :-)

"what the hell does vinayakar have to do with ajth's love story!"

I am not the religious type so correct me if I am wrong, Ram :)

Maybe that is SunTV's way of surreptitiously announcing to "the youth" that if they want to be successful in picking up chicks, they had better watch Ajith's movie instead of praying to Vinayakar who really doesn't have a stellar background when it comes to women...you get my drift, people?! Just kidding :)

Incidentally, did you chaps here that Simbu tried to rope in Sania Mirza to play one of his leading ladies in an upcoming production? Glad she refused :)

sun tv is not as clueless as i earlier thot though. recently kaps had a post on 'thamizh murasu', sun tv's new evening newspaper. and there were comments praising the newspaper from commenters whose IP led to sun tv's domain! and they did the same on another blog whose post criticized the newspaper. ofcourse they didn't block the ip but still... they scanned the blogs and found ones on thamizh murasu and commented...

gopi, vinayagar ungala udhaikka poraaru!!!!

vijay, yeah, avange maadu kannu kutti poattadhu; paati vadai suttathu elaam solluvaange!

i was just laughing at gopi's comment. the idea is you pray to pulliyar that your love life will be as good as ajith's. innum endha payalum sania mirzakku kadalai podalayennu nenaichchen (ponnu thuru thurunnu vera irukkale).. pottutaangayya.. pottutaangayya..

vijay, i think channels in all countries have a bias. but the fact that its so blatant and biased is what makes it so irritating!
and their news is the tv equivalent of the 'manja pathirikkai'! the teaser is even more hilarious since they highlight the stuff with attention-grabbing headlines.

gopi, mandira bedi kedacha udane simbhu must've thot anyone he asks would say yes. i guess he just tries to get someone whos in the news. free publicity :)

ram, i think maalai murasu already existed. this one's the new evening paper. they had an ad blitz on tv with the 'nachunu iruku' teasers.

Sun TV always indulges with the hot cross buns in the city and atleast by this act they want everyone to be talked about. But Sun music is really good yaar.. Do u agree with me ?

Kushboo and company

1. Pre Marital sex is here!. That's the truth. There is no denying it. I'm not debating whether that's right or wrong. That's another thread. The purists versus the liberals thread.

2. the fact is that Pre marital sex is here. That's the gist of what Kushboo said (not me!) Its NOT just metros or Mumbai or Delhi that the "pre marital sex" is happening. There are also extra marital going on all over India

3. *Tamil Nadu is NO exception*. we are not some island 1000s of mile away from India. We are not backyard of bihar. TN is an in place now. We are very much into the mainstream. There are surveys that show that approx 40% of college students have had sex before marriage !!! Now please don't come back and tell me ONLY MEN had sex, and that too all by themselves...

4. Tamil movies have as much sex portrayed in them as bollywood movies. In fact there is a great competition there in showing more sex

5. What happens in Indian cities gets noticed and has a multiplier effect. It's soon followed by others in smaller towns and villages

6. The dress, the dance, the music... the cinema ... these have always moved from cities to towns to villages

7. So would this "sex" thing move to every place

8. Womens lib is calling this "freedom of expression" and *supporting Kushboo*
http://www.hindu.com/2005/11/18/stories/2005111817091400.htm

9. So to me it looks like Kushboo has a point. *Men who expect their wife to be a virgin are fools*

I've blogged Kushboo's original comments in Tamil. You can see them on the following URL

http://batteredmale.blogspot.com/2005/11/kushboo-interview-from-india-today-sex.html

A free translation with no recourse follows. If there are other Tamils, you are welcome to provide alternate / better translations. This translation may also be blogged / posted with some credit to me... but with no copyrights.. :

========= start kushboo's comments with some notes from me ==========

*From Sep 28 2005 India Today*

"Kushboo : ..Chennai *was* behind Bangalore with regard to women expressing sexual matters ...."
(Note : I've used "matters" here as her Tamil word does not exactly translate to desires).

Kushboo : ".....Now women in Chennai are also crossing these mental taboos on sexual matters. We get to see a lot of women (girls? ) in Pubs and discos (at Chennai). (These days) Women can talk freely on matters regarding sex. Slowly the woman is opening her wings and has started flying out in this restricted society. Still, accidents to women like Stephany raises some questions about how healthy this trend is?. Sex education is very essential in schools. Even if sex education is not provided in schools, parents have to teach their children about sex....."

Kushboo : "...For me sex is not just a physical thing. Its mental too. I can't understand how women can change their boy friends every week..."
(Note : Kushboo says that she can't accept this habit of changing boy friends per week.... NOT that this does NOT happen !!. That means there are many girls who have weekly boyfriends and Kushboo who is aware of pubs and discos must have a good overview of this.
Note : Its quite possible that after a few years, meaning 52 x 4 = 208 boyfriends when these new age women get married, they would get rather tired of men and soon seek the 498A route :-()

Kushboo : "....If a girl is going strong with her boyfriend, she can go out with him after informing her parents..."
(Note : No issue of seeking permission here. I've carefully read the Tamil word / words. It just says inform. Not seek permission)

Kushboo : "...If a girl has a Strong relationship, the parents have to allow that...."
Note : all about relationships BEFORE marriage. Social acceptance of the same etc... and then comes the clincher)

Kushboo : "...Our society has to be liberated from thoughts like "a woman has to be a virgin at the time of marriage". No educated man would expect his wife to be a virgin. However, women have to safeguard themselves from pregnancy or other disease, while having pre - marital sex....."
Note : So the issues are just physiological and economic at the maximum. don't get pregnant before marriage and don't be left holding the baby !!. The issue is NOT about chastity..

Kushboo : "...I married the man I was in love with. Since we were sure about our relationships, we had sex before marriage. Its now six years since marriage. Since we have two children, our responsibilities have grown. Since the children sleep in the same room as we do we need to find other private times (/moments) for us. Still we have a happy married life. Married people should know how to satisfy their spouse's physical needs. There would be no problems, if desires are understood mutually. ..."
(Note : She has had pre marital sex. She says she married the same person. She was an actress BEFORE she was married.)

Kushboo : "...Some increase gratification by using sex books, photos etc. One cannot say that is wrong. At the same time At the same time, one should understand the other's likes, dislikes and comforts, discomforts. Men who mistake women talking about sex should change their views. Mutual consent is essential for sex. ..."
(Note : Last para is some general whitewash .. The whole interview speaks tons about pre marital sex, sex between partners, safe sex and so on. At one point she cautions women *not* to get pregnant by Pre marital sex !!)

If I dont want to use the phone part of the iPhone, is it different than the iPod Touch? What are the differences, besides the obvious phone part?
