KTV had telecasted Anjali yesterday. Parents were watching kolangal with great interest and had to literally fight with them to get the remote. And THE REMOTE !!! Its one of the reasons for the major fights I have with my parents and siblings. And so I grabbed the remote and sat to watch Anjali. People say that its sad to watch it again and again. True. But only if these movies which have a social cause are televised atleast once, we would think about the issue. Otherwise, one gets drowned in the boy meets girl romance stories.

My papa used to say a joke on this…

Other world: I think Indians are the ones who don’t have any problem.
Indian: Why?
Other world: Because all your films are about romance or tearjerkers whereas ours would deal with a cause that is affecting the society.

Just a joke, but am really wondering why movies are being done this way.. Ofcourse comedy is needed because one goes to a movie for entertainment. But there is a difference when comedy comes from vivek and when it comes from koundamani/senthil.

Of the films that are being made, almost 98% are trash. By trash, I mean (boy meets girl– sing and dance 4,5 duets where glamour is liberally poured — fight with 10, 20 villains — mothers, sisters shed tears– boy, girl united).

There are good movies too.. but we can count them .. can’t we? How hard is it to tell 10 real good movies that have come out in the recent past!!

  3. My favorites till now are Dennis the Menace, Shrek 1, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, Roman Holiday etc…

    In tamil, I can say mouna raagam, anjali, pudhumai penn, unnaal mudiyum thambi (actually most of kamal movies after 90s), nandha, surya vamsam, poovellaam kettupaar (for surya, joe onscreen chemistry).

    what about yours?

  7. I feel many people watch movies to escape life rather than to understand it,either ways movies are always about life….
