Watchtower of Turkey

Over than 3500 km traveled in 20 days, capturing landscapes from the bluish tones of Pamukkale to the warm ones of Cappadocia, the all passing by a great variation of colors, lights and weathers through six other cities.
I’ve crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality.
This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Poojai – Movie review

Poojai-Movie-Posters-7

Poojai

Vasu (Vishal) is a small time financier in a vegetable market, gets targeted by Anna Thandavam (Mukesh Tiwari) a big shot gangster, when he foils his plans of killing a honest ADSP Sivakkozhundhu (Satyaraj). Later when Anna Thandavam dishonors Vasu’s uncle, he hits the gangster in a public place and the latter decides to take revenge on him and his family. How Vasu protects his family from the villain forms rest of the story.

Hari’s film always has a neat formula in storytelling, this film is no different there is always a loop of a fight scene, comedy scene, love scene and a sentiment scene till the end of the film .Vishal performance is flawless and his supported by small town of actors, actresses, character artists and junior artists who are well supported by a never-ending coil of screen play. This film has story content of three films which is cramped into one. Shruti Hassan has a fair bit of screen time in the film in which she does a decent job. Soori‘s attempt to recreate yesteryear’s Gownder and Senthil comedy is just a waste of time, his comedy scenes could have been edited all together. Satyaraj has the same amount screen time as the time he is shown in the trailers, so do not expect him more in the film. Songs doesn’t help much and the background score is always louder. Cinematographer Priyan has a close bound with the Director and always delivers, but his repeated fly cam shots have become boring and gives headaches through out . Poojai is lengthy Maggie masala noodle. I give it 5/10

Kaththi – Movie review

kathai-tamil-movie-vijay-posters-00178

Kathiresan (Vijay) a petty thief escapes from Kolkata prison comes to Chennai to seek help from his friend and to escape out of the country. At the airport he meets Ankitha (Samantha) and its love at first sight, he drops the plan to escape and tries to find her. At that moment he witnesses a shootout and his stunned to find his look alike as the victim. He manages to take him to the hospital in time when he finds out that the Kolkata police as also arrived in search of him. He decides to impersonate the injured man and implicates him as the escaped convict. As the story progresses, Kathiresan comes to know that his look alike is Jeevananthan who is fighting for the helpless farmers against Chirag (Neil Nitin Mukesh), the owner of an MNC cola company who wants to take over the lands in Thannoothu, village, which has an untapped water source. Kathiresan decides to pass off as Jeevananthan initially and make away with a lump sum amount but once he realizes what Jeevananthan is really fighting for he decides fight for the farmers.

AR Murugadoss has once again has given us a movie with social relevance with an over load commercial elements. He has taken a very critical issue of the farmer’s plight against the urban globalization and given a neat film. Vijay’s screen presence is faultless and his punch dialogues make the audience lively. Samantha as all the Murugadoss’s heroines is just an eye candy in the film. It’s a decent debut by Neil Nitin Mukesh but he doesn’t look villainous enough. The cinematographer George C Williams has done a good job. Even though the song placement vague in the film, as single numbers they still sound nice and are catchy among the Vijat fans. The first half is a bit slow and wanders without direction; it catches up just before the intermission and entertains you till the end. I give it 6/10
