Scarlett Johansson has a worth while role in the movie! The only drawback in the movie is when Tesla box comes into the picture. Other wise, the performance, screenplay and editing is all flawless. So my verdict, go see it!
I saw prestige on friday and another movie called The Departed yesterday. Though the ratings for the movie were good, i din like the movie much. The movie has a similiar story line to that of kuridhi punal by kamal hassan. Undercover cop gets into a mafia gang and the gang is trying all means to find out about the rat! The movie is nothing great considering that it has Matt damon and jack nicolson. My verdict watch it if you have nothing else to see
Yesterday we all had a small get together for diwali, it was fun. It was fun playing with the kids. But poor them, they dont get a chance to fire crackers here! I bet they will be afraid to play with them when they go back to india.
Hope everyone had a safe diwali! subha i owe you the tag, i will write one soon
Watch this and enjoy! these guys rock, its called the Yogi B n Nachathira Feat Lock Up - Madai Thiranthu

CAR SINGER: you would have heard of bathroom singer! Now what is this car singer?? Well perusa onum illa. I like to sing when I am driving alone. one crazy habit! I know if I turn the speakers off, I would myself stop singing as my voice is pathetic but anyways..
COMIC LOVER: There is nothing weird about this, other than the fact that, i still love to read comics and watch cartoon. If anyone out there is like me, then you tube and google videos rock. I saw tintin in tibet in google videos.
POORI HATER: yeah! I hate those pooris! I cant just stand them, I used to like them when I was a kid, but I dunno when I started hating those things. Poori dripping oil, my god! I cant even imagine.
Shoe lace: This might sound totally non sensical, but I cant tie my lace which will hold itself for more than an hour, I dont know what happens to the stupid thing. After a preset time, the stupid thing unties itself. So atleast 5-6 times in a day I tie my lace… thats sad!
Maths : Guys at college know that I was pathetic in maths, what they dont know is at times I can really silly with simple ones. Like 11 in binary is eleven or 70 + 29 is 89, even now I do these mistakes.
Absent minded: I was never like this, but these days I am turning into one big time. The list includes, trying to call my own cell number from cell itself, ends up listening to my unread voice mail. Taking exactly the wrong freeway (North instead of south) and realizing after a while.
I am tagging sp, nawaz

I dont know how many of you have had this problem? Yesterday i had this problem in home laptop. I could'nt connect to my wireless router. It kept giving me this error.At first i thought it could be the problem with the router. What happens at times is, as we dont turn off our router for days together, it would require a simple restart. I tried that but in vein.
Then i saw that, this message (limited or no connectivity) i was recieving when my system was trying populate it ipaddress, i mean thru DHCP. So now i thought DHCP server in the router was not working properly.
So i assigned a static Ip in the subnet as that of my router and DNS as my router and tried again, this time it was wierd, i was able to ping my router but nothing beyond it. So this eliminated the problem with my wireless card.
I tried repairing the network connection, tried restarting the laptop but all measures failed. Was wondering if i had re install my OS, that would be tedious.
So when i googled from my friends system, i found that, the culprit could be some spyware. My firewall program (ZONE ALARM) had run a scheduled check previous night and had found handfull of spywares, and some sites said, while removing the spywares some of them corrupt the TCP/IP stack.
So, that could be a posibility and luckily i found this tool
I must say that this is a must have tool! work fine and if you are worried that, its altering ur registry you can also, take a snap shot of ur registry with this, in case u want to revert back.

Why do some sites even do it... my point here is atleast dont upload the movie for atleast 30 - 45 days. Recently i noticed that some movies were online almost the very next day... that is not fair at all!
Point number one..this is not fair and point number two... the movie loses its quality and why should we do that? and for people who make it a point to watch movies online it is nothing less to stealing. Try to refrain from doing that!
anyways saw munnabhai in the big screen yesterday and it is a ok kind of movie, yes it has lived upto the expectations to some extent. My verdict is go watch it!
ghandhi-diri ... haan lage raho munnabhai

Remember tsunami, when a calamity of that scale occurs, what people expect is medias’ unbiased coverage. Two leading private channels in Tamilnadu were more focused on the political affiliation than the issue at hand.
Political parties however diverse their ideas be, should have come together to bring immediate relief to the victims. Political parties and media are just capitalizing the needs of day worker, the proof being, a govt. being elected just because it promised color tv. I am not against any party here, but just imagine how the party catapulted itself.
Man there are other basic needs, leave uninterrupted power supply, I dont know how many villages even have electricity, and metro city like Chennai doesnt have enough water!
Now coming back, what has happened to the people once the cameras were packed? What happened to the relocation and promised relief measures? May be its the hyenas time to cash in the situation!
Time for contractors to take control of the situation, tenders being given to the favored ones and no one knows about it! Now all this happens in Tamilnadu and just three days after tsunami struck, I read times of India and the main headlines was about a issue in Pakistan. Headlines is fine, I was not able to read news about tsunami in its entire first page! I had to select "states" page and in that "chennai" and there I found a news about this. Why this discrimination? Are they running short of reporters? Was this news not important for the people there?
I open Hindustan times, just to see a UK model posing for a photograph in the first page. Hmm thousands of lives have been lost and this paper is celebrating with model fotos.
All these things just increase my hatred towards media and other ignorant Indians.

For the long weekend had been to Yosemite! it’s a nice place, giant trees, fresh air , fresh water… the trip was refreshing and gave us a much needed break.
Was wondering if it is good to be selfish ??? I have not been able to be like that!!! But some people survive being one! it is all the more disturbing when you get affected Probably I should learn how to say a 'NO' or show my disgust right in front of the person, Whenever I wanted to do this, always I would wonder what if the other person gets hurted! hmm anyways

The movie has everything that a typical tamil movie has emotion, romance and comedy…but wait a minute! MI’s are supposed to be action movies , yeah! Just that action is similar to our gabdains actions…and hence comedy.
The movie has everything but story!!! Things I learnt from this movie
1. Any thing that can be inserted into key hole of a lock can open the lock (wire, pen refill …)
2. You can take your computer and laptop to any place and do weird things (roof top, bus, van and control machine guns and guns firing tennis balls…)
3. To blow the fuse of a high tech device that is implanted into your brain, you should electrocute yourself( namma gabdain rumba naal moonadi transformer vedika vechaaru theriuma..andha madhiri)
4. Gabdain is everywhere…!!!
In short this movie is hug hug hug bang bang bang….
Its been 2 years into blogging…!!!

Ok will start with one of the part time job I did while doing my masters… used to get up at 4 in the morning and cycle 3-4 kms and do a cleaning job… yes! a cleaning job… man it used to be painful… I guess nawaz will be able to relate to…coz we both used to go together…
The schedule was something like this… wake up at 4 - 4:30, put on our gears (oldest possible dress and a helmet) and cycle to the work place (building meant for refugees)…used to sign in and start work at 6 in the morning. Trust me it was not easy, being tall has its own disadvantages, I had to clean the ceiling… ok anyways… we used to do this till 3 in the afternoon (of course with a lunch break in between). Then cycle back home have a nice shower and go to university at 17:30 … university used to be till 21:30, come home , cook something, eat, sleep and wake up at 4 again… wat is ‘inbham’ in this??? Money getting credited every week…
The next would be working night shift in 7-11… though it was not as tiring as the cleaning job, but it was boring and you were not supposed to sit down whole through the night… you can find my 7-11 experience here… actually was wondering what n all part time I have done while at aus Dish washing Cleaning Distributing junk mail Worked in 7 – 11 Worked in a sri lankan shop Worked in Australian post In a way, I feel that these things actually make you both physically n mentally strong..
Of course my list will always have the lovely ssn days… man those were the days of my life… those were the days of ssn…sigh! ---
n i would like to tag nawaz sudharshan bharathi sathyus sathyapriya bharathi barti

Was feeling bored and decided to watch some Tamil movie…was browsing through the net and came across this site. The deal is pretty ok, they charge $10 for a month for SUN TV. No! I am not a fan of sun TV, the money is worth for the news and the clarity is pretty good too… the timing is US central time… and guess what?? In the week days I get to see all the tele-serials when I reach home…grrr…
Half heard news…Mr.k has announced ‘vana tholaikatchi peti’ for everyone!!! Err.. whaat ???Man where are we heading? I seriously don’t understand the election gimmicks.
Watched patiyal few days back and my verdict, it’s an ok movie… same old masala movie with a different director and actor… Btw any good movie released???

I presume a lot of people are doing the same! Do we think that everyone is email-able ??? and we need to mail them only when it is needed??? The fact that I have been proactive in my groups, and there are people who are worse than me makes me feel even worse… College days now looks like a distant past, I don’t even have a clue about the whereabouts of few people in my class… was this bound to happen?? I know everyone has had a special feeling for college friends, and when we separated we always thought that the chain will remain intact no matter what, hardly four years and I already see it breaking up… but at least I am happy that I am still in touch with a lot of people…I wish that we are email-able, callable and chatable …. Here is a list of my college friends, who have shared my ups n down and still in touch Nawaz, bharathi, ghuru, deepak, gv, thirumathi, suresh, vetri, selva and susi….this a list of those people, whom probably I will never forget! You wake me up at midnight and say ‘nawaz’; even if I knew 100’s by the same name… the first person to ring the bell would be this guy…
others who have been close to me or rather I have been close to: Sai, narendran, jk, gopalan, ilango, arun(aluku), alex, gautham, ramya, barthi, kavitha, naveen, thiaga, pradeep, shyam(bulb) and sham….i hope I haven’t missed anyone…. I guess that’s too much of senti….
