A Very Nice Thought for You

Recently I came across a very nice thought from Paulo Coelho's 'Maktub'.

You can imagine a flock of birds, but the number of birds in the flock is beyond your control. Yet the scene was clear, well-defined, exact. There must be an answer to the question. Who was it that determined how many birds should appear in the imagined scene? Not you!

Ban Endosulfan or It Will Kill Us All Sooner or Later!

Even though I support UDF & UPA , I have uncompromisingly sharp dispute with them on their attitude towards Endosulfan & GM crops. It's as if they are asking for more deaths or perhaps the death of all (!) to ban Endosulfan! The side effects of Endosulfan are pretty clear. Still waiting for what?  Do the human lives shattered through that insecticide have no value at all? Still need more study to ban it from this democratic country? They have taken a more or less similar attitude towards Genetically Modified (GM) crops as well! 
Ban Endosulfan & GM Crops from India. Every human life is precious.

വെറുതെ വന്ന ഒരു ചിന്ത...

ഇത്രയും നാള്‍ എനിക്ക് മഴയേക്കാള്‍ പ്രിയപെട്ടവളായി ആരും ഇല്ല എന്ന് അഹങ്കരിച്ചു നടക്കുകയായിരുന്നു അവള്‍. എന്നാല്‍ ഇന്നു പെയ്തു തുടങ്ങും മുന്‍പ് ഒരു കുസൃതി എന്നോണം  എന്നോട് ചോദിച്ചു. ഉത്തരം  ഞാന്‍ പറയും മുന്‍പ് മനസിലാക്കിയതിനാലാവണം, ഒന്ന് ചെറുതായി ചാറുക പോലും ചെയ്യാതെ എന്നോട് പിണങ്ങി പോയികഴിഞ്ഞിരുന്നു.

Jan Lokpal Bill, Anna Hazare & New Hope

I support Jan Lokpal Bill, Anna Hazare and his noble cause.
Actually it is a new hope. A new hope against corruption and being exploited. 

No one in India supports corruption except those who delayed the Bill for the past decades! As a matter of fact no party which ruled the country made an effort to legalize Lokpal Bill. We all know the reason! 

Someone recently said the bill is against democracy! So what about corruption and being exploited?!!

Anna Hazare is the real Hero. A hero who showed great courage and stood firm on what he believes in. (Some people even tried to play politics in this noble cause too! But Anna Hazare utilized the situation to the world that he is the real hero!)

Millions of people who supported your cause via different ways showed that India being awaken. Indians felt a new feeling of being rejuvenated and we will keep the spark ignited. Hats off. Once again, you are the real hero, real patriot, real India.


Urumi - Malayalam Movie Review - Good but not Best

'Urumi' is good but not the best! Good because of many things like direction, cinematography, casting, art direction, dialogue, action, songs etc etc. Not best, because it really lacks a strong storyline, a strong script and a strong patriotic feel that we all expected. Actions sequences are taken very well with much technical perfection.

Director-Santhosh Sivan really deserves appreciation. He made a good piece of art indeed. The movie is pretty worth watching. That won't be an exaggeration if someone says director deserves all claps. Actually it's a director's piece of work! Deepak's song 'aaro ne aaro' is superb & bgm could have been made better!

Genelia played a strong character named 'Ayisha' and she is at her best, I think. Really liked it. I dare to rank her number three in my favorite actress list following Nicole Kidman in 'Australia' and Julia Roberts in 'Notting Hill'. Once I loved Sarah Ashley from 'Australia' & Anna Scot from 'Notting Hill'! Now I love Ayisha from Urumi!!! Actually I was not a Genelia fan before!


Indian Cricket Team Fulfilled An Indian Dream

This time Indian Cricket Team fulfilled a long Indian dream - Cricket World Cup.

Religion, Politics & Cricket - that's the essence of India! (Entirely my opinion only, no offense!)

More than 121 Billion wishes come to true. Deserves more than smiles and claps. 11 men in blue let the whole nation jump out of joy & placed it in the top of the world! 

Glad that Sachin's dream come to true. Dhoni really deserves a special clap. (Now I am Dhoni fan too!)

Note: I know the post is too late!

My Favorite Rumi Poems

If the sky is not in love,
then it will not be so clear.
If the sun is not in love,
then it will not be giving any light.
If the river is not in love, then it will be
in silence, it will not be moving.
If the mountains, the earth are not in love,
then there will be nothing growing.

I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty,
and wish to see you with a hundred eyes.
I am in the house of mercy,
and my heart is a place of prayer.

You were born with potential;
You were born with goodness and trust;
You were born with ideals and dreams;
You were born with greatness;
You were born with wings;
You are not meant for crawling, so don't
You have wings;
Learn to use them and fly!

'Traffic' ~ The Best Malayalam Movie I Have Ever Seen


I am not a movie critic at all! But in my opinion 'Traffic' is the best malayalam movie I have ever seen. 'Manichitratazhu' was my ever time best in malayalam before I watched 'Traffic'. No offense, Manichitratazhu will remain as a classic. If I didn't watch 'Traffic' , I would have lost faith in malayalam movie at all!

In my experience I got bored with most malayalam movies publicized as 'hit', 'super hit', 'super star rocks', 'hollywood style', 'first time in world cinema', 'universal hero' etc. Most of such movies were below zero value in all dimensions!

As a usual malayalee, I too adjust with such works & was in an attitude 'I don't care' & 'This is Malayalam Movie' etc. But 'Traffic' is simply SUPERB in ALL DIMENSIONS.

The movie 'Traffic' is simply superb & a wonderful piece of Art work. Hats off to the cast & crew of 'Traffic'. Congrats, you have done a very good job for malayalam film industry. The movie came without any 'heavenly' hype going to rock for sure.

Pros : The movie handled a lot more emotions in a very healthy way all around 2hrs. (Yes, the movie didn't try to waste our time around 3hrs by giving a foolish concept that they have saved our money! ) Director Rajesh R. Pillai deserved hearty claps for handling those so much emotions in a good way. 2 hrs of emotions indeed. (Never ever think emotions as only 'tele opera' crying emotions please!)

It was a really good effort to make a lot more within 2hrs & making it a master piece. (While most others struggling with above two & half hrs in bgm, cry & slow motion!)

Story/Script Writers Bobby and Sanjay deserved special claps as well. Without a perfect script like this, this wouldn't have happened. Perfect script. We can't find a loop hole there!

Casting of actors is well suited. They are all perfect match for the characters. Everyone perfectly suited for characters. Each & every character in it have equal importance! No Hero! No Villain! No Heroine! Everyone can be considered as Supporting Actors!

Dialogues. Wow. Heart touching lines. Conversation between SaiKumar & Collector and Anoop Menon & Jose Prakash will stay with you for a few days! SaiKumar said it in a very height of sorrow & is touching. (Watch the movie for dialogues! In Theatres!)

Director succeeded in making a movie full of thrill, suspense & emotion. All actors in it acted very well. In my opinion, especially Sai Kumar.

The movie showed all sorts of relations in a very good & healthy way. It shows us the strength of relations & how bad we feel if we ever loose those relations. (In that sense the hollywood movie 'AWAKE' is a must watch. It showed us different emotions & the bond of relations. A movie with a similar genre of heart transplant itself but in a completely different way!)

The movie showed us all how a malayalam movie could be! Before it most of the so called 'hit' makers showed us how a malayalam movie should not to be!

Thanks to Rajesh Pillai, Sanjay , Bobby & the whole crew for making such a wonderful 'Emotional Thriller'.

Cons : The movie will stay with you for a few days even after you left the theatre! A must watch malayalam movie! 'Traffic' won't let die malayalam movie which requested for a 'mercy killing'!
