VIKRAM VEDHA – A must watch thriller

It was the fourth Tamil movie I m watching in theatre. My previous ones includeMassu engira Masilamani which gave me worst experience, OK Kanmani which I loved and Bahubali 2 which was a wonderful experience. I guess my readers know I m weak in Tamil and I don't understand even a single sentence completely. So, I was not so excited in going for Vikram Vedha , I had seen the different looks of R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi for the movie, I passed by so many reviews (haven't read any) but I was on a lag mood. My husband told me its a thriller and to say, the last Tamil thriller I saw was 'Druvangal 16'. I must mention it was an awesome movie.
So the movie started by 10.30 pm after my long tiring office and household chores. I was struggling to keep my eyes open and the movie begins.
The first thing that made me smile was the subtitles. They ran it with English subtitles and there I won. My sleep took leave for next 147 minutes. The credits rolled with the comic of Vikramadithyan and Vedhalam, the story which made us think in our childhood days. Vikram Vedha was the same. It made us think.
Its is the story of good and evil. Every moment it throws a question at us and we were confused whether to chose this or that and thats where the movie wins. It shows clearly that our life is how we assume it will be like. Our happiness, sadness, excitement everything is created by us only. Nobody is a part in that and we can't blame anyone. The film ends again with a question of who wins over who and the director left that question to us.

Vikram Vedha in one way is a typical Gangsters movie with too much twists in the plot. Its just a simple race between a police officer Vikram and gangster Vedha. But Vikram Vedha in another way is a fantastic movie which made it super fantastic by the narration, the super cool acting by Vijay Sethupathi (Vedha) and R. Madhavan (Vikram) who never let us down with their performance. R. Madhavan who is always my favourite person performed one of the best in his career yet, while Vijay Sethupathi is stunning with his expressions, acting and appearance. If you are hoping for an action drama, you will be disappointed, there is no mass fights and people flying over air. This is definitely a thriller drama. Thank you Pushkar and Gayathri for such a great one.

Its just a race with life where what we assumed as good becomes evil and the evil becomes? Definitely a confusing question!

Seven movies in single month Godha, Role Models, Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, Dunkirk, Sunday Holiday, Tiyaan! Mixed responses but Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum and Vikram Vedha made our month! Taking a break from movies! More exciting things on the way!
Till then,
Happy Blogging ❤️

its OVER! #AtoZchallenge

Its over.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

By the time I am drafting this I am cleaning my work desk and drawers.. Packing the stuffs I own here.. The diaries where there are calculations over calculations.. The notepads which owns so many uncompleted drafts.. I cleared the sticky notes and reminders.. Handed over the works to my head and just listening to that cute song by kids for The Jungle book movie (Hindi).. Jungal Jungal Baat Chali Hai.. ๐Ÿ™‚ At my side my colleague; he is like a little brother to me is still itching on my packing.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah!! its time for me to leave this office.. A new day is waiting for me.. In two days Iย will be sitting in another work desk missing the people here.. I am already missing them.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


So that.. It’s OVER! The life here.. All the way to a new dawn.. ๐Ÿ™‚O

Be like a KITE #AtoZchallenge

First of all let me say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful, sweet and lovely DARCY aka for all the WP people Mr. DARSHITH BADIYANI. eeeee ๐Ÿ˜€


Kites.. Kites for me can be written as The Kite Runner or Khaled Hossieni.. Kites are one of my most favorite entertaining invention by human. A paper attached to a string floating in the sky controlled by us. Kites are a wonderful sight to see. Kites are whatย Iย search in beaches or grounds. I love seeing them freely in the sky and I love the hope of the person holding the string. Making it fly higher and higher. Careful on not getting detached from the spool.


Talking about kites, it’s hard to leave ‘The Kite Runner’ behind. Kite Runner is one of my favorite book which moved me and kept me numb for another week. Iย read Kite Runner while I was in my college and I used to read it while in class (Such a notorious back bencher I am ๐Ÿ˜› ) Now and then books was my favorite friend and I never missed chance to read it. But to say, Kite Runner made me miss some classes too. I went blank for the next two days after reading the whole book. I livedย with Hassan and Amir and I cried for Sohrab. ๐Ÿ™‚ If ‘The Kite Runner’ by Kahled Hosseini is still in your to read list; you must read it. That’s a great read.

KSo once again Happy Birthday to my Fitz William Darcy.. ๐Ÿ™‚
You are awesome and I love you!! โค
Stay blessed and keep inspiring me on everything I do.. ๐Ÿ™‚
My prayers and love always for you!!
Fly high as a kite.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Blogging to all.. โค

TAMASHA – I m in love with Imtiaz again!

*Spoilers are everywhere.. ๐Ÿ˜‰


For an insane weirdo one like me; every pages in a book or every scenes from a movie never fascinates. But, if there is at least one sentence or a dialogue that can hook to my heart; I would like to enter that to my favorites list. Imtiaz Ali never ever disappointed me. From Socha Na Tha(2005) to Tamasha(2015), 6 movies in 10 years & his recent three already got a space in my heart. He always have an enchanting way of presenting stories. A director who puts his best to make the movie feel, than just a watch.


Tamasha is different. Different from Highway(2014), different from Rockstar(2011); but often it felt the same. Tamasha is about what we need and what we are. A story about transition in between dream & reality. It’s charming! It’s gloomy. It’s about a boy who lives through stories. A boy who love narrations more than Maths & Physics. A boy who finds a story in everything running around him.ย Tamasha is about Don & Mona darling who met in Corsica. It’s the story of two individuals who love to live their life to the fullest on those 7 days in Corsica telling lies to each other. It’s about falling in love with a stranger! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Tamasha is also about Ved & Tara who met in Delhi after four years. The story of two well settled reputed individuals who fall in love again. It’s about finding what’s leaving ourselvesย & acting our life for someone else. After all it’s about finding ourselves.


Tamasha leaves a beautiful message at the end that the only time we felt we are a hero is our Childhood & from the teenage we are living for the sake of others & killing our Bachpan (Childhood).

Tamasha is beautiful trough the lens in Corsica, Shimla, Delhi & Tokyo. Tamasha is georgeous with Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone. They both lived the character. Deepika is glowing like a star while Ranbir makes sure that he is superstar. Tamasha is magical in A R Rahman‘s music. It’s more touching in Irshad Kamil‘s lyrics.


Tamasha have flaws. It often drags you through the plot. Someone who need an entertaining commercial movie may get bored. But if you are an Imtiaz fan; Tamasha is the movie made for you!
For me, Tamasha is what I was in need & what I expected from Imtiaz Ali.

Oh Kadhal Kanmani – Fall in love again!

Don’t know spoilers will be ahead or not, cause it took me 6 days after watching the movie to write about it! This is not a review too (To Suhasini ma’am, m not an expert to review the movie, but my urge to write makes me do this)

Sometimes we will reach in a moment where anything that we write about is only good things and that’s why I stayed back for 6 days after the movie. But, still I found nothing can make me loose the energy I got from the very first minute of the movie. Anyone who loved ‘Alaipayuthe’ will love this flick; but for me I m not really fond of ‘Alaipayuthe’ (But, can’t leave without appreciating the songs). ‘OK Kanmani’ย (OKK)ย is one of my most awaited release, with those one minute short trailer and so many short clips from the movie, I had already fallen in love with these Kanmanis. With the arrival of the complete tracks; yet again my master ARR took away my sleep with that awesome 9 tracks. Being a movie craze and spending more money over every week’s release I was running out of money already by the mid of April and I was saving that last penny to get a seat in PVR at any time to catch the show. After three consecutive tries by my roomies we got the ticket after one week from the release day; still housefull. And it was on a hectic day in office my roomie called me and told she got ticket. I was not in a mood to watch the movie; but I said ‘OK will join you!’ My brain was all dead by the evening and can’t even hear the vehicle horns behind me. I was walking like a robot and there is only a few minutes to the show. We managed to run through the escalator and get in front of the cinemas on time. I already had a movie bunch month with ‘100 days of love’, ‘Oru Vadakkan Selfie’ (that too 2 times) and ‘Furious 7’. Nothing gave me that punch or that effect other than the tribute to Paul walker, my hero! No recent movies gave me that hangover through which I can live a dreamy life! And i was really in need of that break.


Sitting back in the PVR I felt that easiness, air conditioned, out of order brain and I felt I will fell asleep soon and my money for this movie gonna be a waste. ๐Ÿ™‚ And most important is I m so weak in Tamil and its my Mom who helps me while watching any Tamil movie to understand the dialogues or else I prefer subtitles. M good in Hindi, better in English and best in Malayalam but don’t speakย Tamil to me. Please. (i can read Tamil, but won’t understand it) I already sought the help of my roomies to help me out. they agreed. The moment movie started I felt all the people around me is also robots. No claps, no howls, no seettis (At least this is Mani sir’s movie; he always deserves a clap). The reel started rolling with that awesome ‘Kaara Aaattakkaara’ and there scrolls the animation of a well set game. I liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย My sleepy head is now full of energy. From that moment I fallen in love with the movie and I concluded that this time Mani sir won’t disappoint me. Movie didn’tย give a mass entry to our rock star Aadi; played by Dulquer Salman, better say; lived by Dulquer. But the first shot itself was classic. Mumbai Railway station and accidentally meeting a girl in between some passing trains and to say; we can’t take off eyes from Tara; well played by Nithya Menen;ย from that moment itself. Her eyes can express everything.

Then usual things happened in very unusual manner. Meeting the girl again, exchanging phone number, falling in love, making love. Its a movie about how youth is like and they can’t chose a better back ground than Mumbai. Thank you Mani sir for making them both creative minded. We can’t give a better career to the both pivotal roles. What makes this movie special is the love, affection, emotions, feelings and moreover energy throughout. The music by Rahman sir ( You are the best sir! ) P C Sreeram’s camera (Mumbai seems pretty, even if it is the streets or the city, everything seems filled with โค )

Mani sir is always elegant. He never made us bored by showing thousands of stories in one frame and here too, he made us live through two simple energetic youth who never like the certificate called marriage but they love to fall in love for each other. I don’t know how much someone will digest the theme of live in relationship but if we stay out from the usual conservative mind set, this can happen. The director never left us in a simple live in relationship and their love; but so warmly introduced an old couple; played by Prakash Raj and Leela Samson, showed us the tenderness of long lasting love. All over the film ended in a conservative way and ended up in tying knot but it never disappoint anyone in any ways.

I really like to thank Mani sir for such an awesome energetic rom-com to us. And I have many more thanks to say.

1. Perfect cast – I don’t know whether someone else can do as perfect as DQ and Nithya. But for me its the perfect cast. I can’t stop appreciating their performance. Never overdone. Never melodramtic. Never vulgar. They have the perfect chemistry. They are hot, still simple. We always felt they are people next door. The whole cast including Prakash Raj, Leela Samson and everyone else made their part very well.

2. Characters – Thanks for making Nithya a passionate Architect. Bold, Smart, the one who never like to be bound by the chain of commitments. Who always says what she would like to say. More like me. And thanks for making DQ a game developer. Nothing interesting than that. ๐Ÿ™‚ ; the same passionate, carefree, still romantic charming one.

3. MusicRahman sir always do magic with his music. Yet again i can’t sleep without hearing the whole album once in a day. It gives energy. It makes me smile. It makes me carefree and it gave me back myself.

4. Camera – Lights, flowers, art works, costumes everything seems perfect through PC sir’s camera. We can’t forget that 15 years old ‘Pachai Nirame’. It have that freshness still and I m sure OKK will give that freshness after years.

5. Dialogues – Even through less dialogues Mani sir is perfect in making a movie live. We had seen it before in ‘Kannathil Muthamittal’, ‘Roja’ and all. The same happened here. With less dialogues and more gestures and eyes spoke well. And those few dialogues which has to be delivered is the best ever that can happen in a romantic movie. When Aadi says “Naan panna periya thapp… Tara” We can’t stop our heart from beating fast. And that one simple word which gonna hit the couples whole world. ‘Kanmani’ (Still ringing DQ’s voice in head “Azhathe Kanmani ๐Ÿ™‚

6. Romance – Who don’t like to fall in love? Me. Yeah! I don’t like to. But who don’t like to watch a love story? No one. OKK is full of romance, love , affection and more. In tears, in smiles, in laughs; everywhere we can see love. We can’t leave the cinemas without a smile.

OKK won’t demand any super love story. Its simple, classic, special in its own way. For me it’s a must watch. Cause we really need a change. Let’s feel lighter but energetic. It makes everyone fall in love. For those who think its not worth watching, don’t go for it. But for me, this movie gave me that hangover i need for the past one week. It gave me that good feel to smile over everything. It gave me the energy to get back in my track. Moreover it gave me the feel that ‘Its good to be someone’s Kanmani ๐Ÿ™‚

random thoughts!!!

” ๐Ÿ™‚ yaadein mithai ke dibbe ki tarah hoti hai…ek baar khula toh sirf ek tukda nahi kha paoge… โค ”

Every moments give something new to our life…each and every breath…sometimes we feel it…we takes it…sometimes we feel and ignore…sometimes we even don’t know what life gives… zindgi kuch dhethe he…lekin badle mein kuch mangthi he… (life gives us something..but in turn asks for something) …how strange!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ even a simple smiley can make you feel special…make your dear ones feel better…always find to smile at simple things…every moment will be awesome… ๐Ÿ™‚

Laugh hard means cry hard… ๐Ÿ˜€ …tighten your pillow…burst out…thats it!!! At last it gonna make you feel free…i heard somewhere.. “if you wanna fly high…firstly you have to put down all the weights in your hand…” โค how simple!!! Life is pretty simple always…through the memories…through the best moments…thinking about the best people… โค …wow!!!

“kal nahin thi jo aaj lagthi hoon…tareef meri hai khaamakha…tohfa hai tera meri adaa…”
Everyone have such a wonderful person in our life…may be more than one… (I was not what I am now…I should not be praised…My grace is your gift to me… ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Every person in our life gives something to our life…sometimes miracle…sometimes simple smiles…sometimes tears…so put back the smiles back to them…show your jaadu in their life now itself…cause after their role in our life…they will go back…and all that remains will be we…alone… ๐Ÿ™‚ smile…. smile….smile…. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

“Mein udna chahthi hoon…Daudna chaahthi hoon…Girna bhi chaahthi hoon…bus rukna nahin chaahthi…”

End of this…all the credits for this incredible dialogues goes to the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani… ๐Ÿ™‚ keep on loving your dear ones… ๐Ÿ™‚

HIGHWAY – Magical Road Movie (Not a review but what i felt)

It was a late night cold day i sat up and switched on the laptop…All are asleep and what i need that day was my own moments…I miss my home…mom…movies…friends…books…gupshups!!! I started watching…

Highway Posters feat Alia Bhatt, Randeep Hooda

Gone through so many reviews and status updates about the movie in blogs and Facebook made me think that this gonna be a dragging one… (even Rajeev Masand said so)…but i could’nt imagine a boring piece from Imtiaz Ali…

Starting of the movie made me the same thought i had read in reviews…this may be dragging…a girl got kidnapped late night by some rascals in a petrol pump in front of her fiance on the day before her wedding…and the way the head of the kidnappers behaves to her is heart aching…Finding out that she is the daughter of a well known entrepreneur the kidnapped team got confused and they split…the thread goes fast till then…there starts the journey of Veera, the girl’s and Mahabir, the kidnapper’s journey…

Highway…for me is a simple movie…not much complicated…a girl who found freedom in the hands of the man she kidnapped…its quite natural that they starts loving each other…Imtiaz did it in the best way and it is appreciable that they are not kissing on the next moment she find comfortable with him…(a Bollywood movie without a kissing scene is rare now a days…) For those who want a masala movie i don’t prefer Highway..because this is only a perfect road movie which made me kept watching watching and watching…i really wished the movie not to end..the cinematographer and the camera man did a wonderful job by taking us visually through Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan, Himachal and Kashmir…Moments seems to be precious and dialogues are rare but executed dialogues are fantastic and worth thinking….

This movie is not a single adventure by Imtiaz…Everything in this movie is simply awesome…A.R.Rahman’s music is the one thing which makes this movie non-boring in the situations where it have to be bored…Superb acting by the cast..Alia Bhatt as Veera seems to be a matured actor than a college girl (totally out of Shanaya look) …The way she changes from smile to broken tears in a scene is just worth to show her talent…Mahabir is well played by Randeep Hooda…over emotions on grief…love and sadness…he acted pretty…The lyrical magic by Irshad Kamil as we heard before in Rockstar is once again seen in this movie…For me Highway is pretty magical which makes me think of the movie and music long after watching the movie…The Veera who ends up on a normal life on a hilltop house as she had dreamt and thinking about her good times with Mahabir…the girl who cries loudly sitting on a road side for Mahabir who wont come back…those scenes will always rest in my mind…

For those who are reading this…this is a must watch piece…its about freedom…life…and satisfaction…
