Santosh Subramanian - Movie review

I caught up with this movie (Santosh Subramanian) staring Jeyam Ravi , Genelia, Prakash raj in lead roles and it turned out to be a complete entertainer. This movie is a remake of Bomarillu ( a super hit telgu movie).

Love makes life beautiful is the theme of the story and it has lived up to its theme.

Prakash Raj plays the role of a disciplined father who has strict rules at his home and his son Ravi maintains the goody boy image at home ,turning out to be the entire opposite when he's out with his friends.

Prakash Raj assumes that he knows whats best for his family giving them no chance to choose the stuffs they like, its only later in the story that he realises he's done a huge mistake by not letting his folks talk or choose for themselves unknowingly.

Genelia plays the role of a cute, bubbly girl who loves making friends but too kiddish at times and ends up putting herself in trouble with wrong people.It's during this time Ravi saves her from the bad stuff and that's how the movie goes on.. It's her bubbly self that has made the movie more lively. A must watch if you wanna be entertained. I would rate the movie 7 on 10.

P.S: A few scenes in this movie were shot in my college (SRM) and for that matter most of Jeyam Ravi's movies have a few scenes shot here right from M.Kumaran .. wonder whats the link??

Monday morning Inspiration # 28

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year grandson. The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.

The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess. "We must do something about Grandfather," said the son. "I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor". So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed their dinners together.

Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather's direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

The four-year-old watched it all in silence. One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, "What are you making?" Just as sweetly, the boy responded, "Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when you get old." The four year old smiled and went back to work.

The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done. That evening the husband took Grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table. For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

Monday morning Inspiration # 27

She had been shopping with her Mom in Wal-Mart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of innocence. It was pouring outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the earth it has no time to flow down the spout. We all stood there under the awning and just inside the door of the Wal-Mart. We waited, some patiently, others irritated because nature messed up their hurried day. I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memories were a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.
Her voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in, "Mom, let's run through the rain," she said. "What?" Mom asked. "Let's run through the rain!" She repeated. "No, honey. We'll wait until it slows down a bit," Mom replied. This young child waited about another minute and repeated: "Mom, let's run through the rain." "We'll get soaked if we do," Mom said. "No, we won't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning," the young girl said as she tugged at her Mom's arm.
"This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?" "Don't you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, 'If God can get us through this, he can get us through anything!" The entire crowd stopped dead silent. I swear you couldn't hear anything but the rain. We all stood silently. No one came or left in the next few minutes.
Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say. Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child's life. A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith. "Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain. If GOD let's us get wet, well maybe we just needed washing," Mom said. Then off they ran. We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They held their shopping bags over their heads just in case. They got soaked. But they were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars. And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.
Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your precious memories...So, don't forget to make time and take the opportunities to make memories everyday. To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. A friend sent this to me to remind me of life.
I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN. They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them. Keep in touch with your friends; you never know when you'll need each other.

My week in a nutshell

Life seems to be so eventful these days that I don' get time to even blog things that I feel like sharing with you all. But thanks to weekends when I get back home and have proper access to internet.

Last weekend I caught up with a movie 'Velli thirai' meaning Silver screen, the review of which you can shortly see at my blog space. It was an interesting watch, thou' it wasn't a feel good movie it had in it a lot of facts depicting how things don' always happen the way you think it will and all the hardships of life.

I watched this movie at inox, a multiplex in Chennai citicentre. It has been a long wait for me to watch a movie at inox. It was started almost a year back and each time I plan of watching a movie here its a herculean task to get tickets. Atlast finally my dad booked tickets for our family l;ast weekend and we were there. Loved the cineplex for its ambience and for the variety of snacks they had to offer.

Later that day I got my parents got me ma new hand phone. Yup, I was so excited and I still am. From then on I have been clicking(pics) away to glory. Its a Sony Ericsson K790i . The best part of it is that its got a 3.2mp camera . Thou' its nothing gr8 when compared to a digicam its good for a handphone.

We had our farewell day celebrations in college for which me and few other friends of mine decided to do a dance. The practice for which made my week all the more hectic. Never mind I love dancing !

Lastly I had to attend an interview for the selection of brand ambassadors for representing Sun micro systems in my college. Thou' my prospects of becoming one is low I enjoyed the experience :). That's how my week went by. Hope you all had a lovely week too!

Monday morning Inspiration # 26

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer.

One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.

"I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."

"No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer.

At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.

"Yes," the farmer replied proudly.

"I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of."

And that he did.

Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, he graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia. What saved his life this time?


The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill.

His son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.

Someone once said:
"What goes around comes around."
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
