Premam Movie-Not Great as expected

I heard lot of great stories about the Premam movie by Director Alphonse putran.

It is just a recopy of Autograph movie and it was a super duper hit in Malayalam.

I have already watched the movie Neram which has the same combination of Director Alphonse putran and Hero as Nivin pauly.

Neram was a hit but the movie was short than the usual movie length.It was just like a short film which is made long as it had the usual different characteristics of cinematography,music and making was completely interesting.

When I watched Premam movie I did not find it as great as what reviews said and people told me.

The music was superhb

The cinematography was colourful with fantastic closeup and zooming camera movement

New introduction of sai pallavi and her acting which is new to the audience is a plus to the movie.
Nivin paul’s performance is good

The making of each and every scene is quite different from the usual movie making style
and a lot of inspiration has been taken from the Cheran’s autography movie.Few scenes like why they are hitting people and openly so many guys coming & going for flirting with girls is bit irritating.Even the closeups and colourfullness in cinematography after some point of time looks like a overdose.

Thus I found the answer why this movie has not won filmfare awards.


Baadshah-Rajini movie now digitally restored

As such I am not a great fan of Rajini as I always say this that I am proud to be a fan of the living legend Kamal hassa

There is this one movie of Rajini which is a landmark movie which changed him from Superstar to Megastar.
As such the story is a known Godfather kind of story but still the scenes somehow where awesome and it went beyond
inspiring only Rajini fans & giving goosebumps to general Audience also.

The scenes were inside a glass room where Rajini tells about his old story is a landmark scene and still lingers in the minds of all the audience.The movie dialogues were perfectly tailor made for Rajini where all the credit must go to the director Suresh Krishna.Inspite of being Assistant to K.Balachander who is known for making family oriented movie,I am facinated by the fact that Suresh Krishna has made this great action movie with Rajini.

The flashback scenes of how Rajini becomes a Don from Nobody and his confrontation with Mark Antony portrayed by the Greatest tamil villain of all Time-Raghvaran makes the movie captive & Engaging.The songs and the background music are more important and they have to match for the weight of the movie story and the star power of the hero.

All in all ,its a legendary movie and recently I heard that this movie digitised and rereleased now.Hope I would get a chance to watch the digitised version of the movie on the big screen.One problem with digitisation is the movie becomes jumpy as I watched the digitised version of the Sivaji movie Karnam.Hope Baadshah is not made in a jumpy way and gives a chance for the audience a decent watch of this super movie

One flew over cuckoo nest

I always say this

Words inspired old movies

Visual inspired new movies.

It means books,novel,short stories inspired the imagination of older movies.

But new movies are inspired from the visuals of older movie.

One flew over cuckoo nest is one such movie which is inspired from words.It was based upon a novel which was made into a play.The plays always have intense dialogues & many shocking moments.

This movie is based on the play again and the intensity of the play has transpired in the movie too.This movie is one of the greatest movies of all time and it must be watched for its intense story & portrayal of what happens in a mental asylum which is a universal story and often we see the same kind of story in newspapers.

Added to the Hero “Jack Nicholson”strong acting, almost all the actors in the movie has portrayed their character upto the detail without any flaws

The movie is about the hero landing himself to a mental asylum run by a strict & tough nurse.Rebelling patients were put to order.The hero changes the patients attitude from fear to confiedence which is not taken well by the hospital Incharge.The hero along with inmates tries to escape.Whether he is able to escape or nor makes the rest of the story.

This movie has fetched many Oscar awards.As the title of the movie tells the whole movie happens in a mental asylum which can be called as a nest.So for me the movie was like watching a play in different parts of the room & few outdoor scenes.I am sure that hollywood movie fans will sync with me that lot of in Jail kind of movies inspired with the same scenes as in Önce flew over cuckoo nest”has come in the past decades,thats why I say Words inspired old movies,Visual inspired new movies.


RAEES MOVIE REVIES-Starring Shah Rukh khan

One thing that comes to mind about the movie is the full action with bloody violence from start to end of the movie.

Compared to all other SRK movies,this was bit over the above and I would say there is a shade of grey beyond acceptable levels of SRK fans.

This movie is about of glorification of gangster.As already SRK has acted in many Anti characters and this movie is not new for his anti character.This one I can say was opposite side of the spectrum when compared to Don.There was style in Don but Raees was completely local.

This is about the story of a bootlegger in prohibition declared Gujarat.The challenge he faces from his enemies & the police officer and how he supports his people inspite of many challenges makes the story.Whether hero overcomes or loses to his enemies makes the rest of the story.

I must say that the emotional scenes between SRK and Heroine has given good acting scope for the heroine and she has used it to her best.

SRK wants to get out of stereo typic Raj character and want to try out different roles but this one I would say was risky and has a bit of controversy also.

For tamil actor Ajith,there is one movie Billa 2 which was a mistakeful choice when his movies are going good & RAEES is such kind of mistake for SRK except that SRK will sail with Good collection wherein Ajith failed at Box office.

Rosebud-Compare a movie with Toastmasters Speech

An Old newspaper baron in his palace in America utters the word “Rosebud” and dies in his death bed in the movie Citizen Kane.The news paper publishers are puzzled with the word “Rosebud” and a group of reporters proceed to investigate the reason for the Citizen Kane to utter the word in his death bed.

The movie Citizen Kane released in the year 1941 is considered to be the best movie  and it’s the topped as 1st in the American film institute’s top 100 fillms of all time.It was scripted and directed by Orson Wells.Like in toastmaster where there is a more emphasis on a structure for a opening,body,conclusion for the success of a speech.Any movie has the opening,body and climax for its success and I have chosen Citizen kane.A structure fails,a movie or a speech fails miserably.

So the opening of the movie was strong with a suspense about the word “Rosebud”. The movie travels with reporters trying to investigate the meaning of the word and the audience were also engaged through the movie with this opening suspense.

When a toastmaster gives a speech with strong opening with a story,quote,question,anecdote ,it makes the audience to bend forward to hear the speech as it has set the tone for suspense or something interesting.

Again,back to the movies,There are 3-4 segments in the movie.In the first segment,it shows the child hood of Citizne kane where he was in poverty but playing happily with a snowskate.His family gets a fortune and he was sent to a different place with a guardian for his education.

In the second segment ,he becomes a successful newspaper publishers with fighting for public  interests.He was very strong in his ideals intitially but later due  his ego and a dominating self interest,he loses the control of the newspaper.

In the third segment,due to his ego he loses trust of his best friend.He forces a compelling love on everybody and even with his wife also.His forces his wife into  singing career which she is not interested.Finally,his wife leaves him alone in his palace.And at the end,Citizen kane dies by uttering the word “Rosebud”

Like in the above movie script,in toastmaster,there is an emphasis to have 3-4 points or examples to support our title.The transition between each example must fade in/fade out like in a movie smoothly.When the examples are portrayed with body language,vocal variety as in the CC manual ,it makes the audience to stick to the speech instead of losing the interest since there is no strong & no lively examples.The speech becomes lifeless if the speech does not have strong and interesting points as a Body of the speech.

Like as mentioned in CC manual of toastmaster,The conclusion or the climax of the speech shoud end perfectly for a call for action,a resolution or an answer to the suspense.Climax fails,movie fails.Conclusion fails,the speech fails.Once through the movie,audience conclude with a immediate reaction of a great movie or a boring movie.In the same way,once our speech is over,the audience conclude immediately as a boring or a great speech.

Oh ya!!!still I did not say what  is rosebud.Yes it was an emotional ending to the movie.Rosebud is the name of the snowskate which citizen kane played during his happiest times as a kid inspite of poverty.He yearns for that happiest moment in his old age as he is now left alone and unhappy.

This movie is very much interesting visually and not as sad as in my article.Do watch this movie and it is a highly entertaining black and white movie with its mind blowing sets,lighting,dialogues and different kinds of story flow and editing.Also Never,ever,ever,ever forgot the structure of opening,body & Conclusion in a speech as in the CC manual of a toastmaster.
