What is love?

Love is it a right thing to do or to stay away? Lets analyze it. In the ester years we have witnessed only arranged marriages and love marriages were a grave mistake then and now it is vice versa; we find a hand full of arranged marriages. One cannot blame the youth for it. It is a communal mistake rather we can use the term change instead of mistake. In those days the number of girls getting educated were a few but now it is not the same trend. Everything is changed. Our dad or mom might have not even seen a boy or girl in direct; the reason behind is girls don't come out much and no communication, no media, no sms nothing but not now the same thing is prevailing.

As my friend Shiva stated in a speech, Girls started with half-saree, chudithar, jeans, midi.. and so the culture is abruptly changing. A normal guy will get deluded for sure and there is no point in blaming. Since all the young boys and girls are out, they choose their partner and so called love starts. Successful true love has to applauded but at the same time youth are being pushed to graveyard by love especially boys. In most of the cases studied its obvious that boys are sincere to their love (not all) and girls are tend to be fickle (not all) and this is where break ups and suicide prevails. Being a boy we can't understand more about a girl than an extent but to be happy ever one should be cautious in choosing his partner or fiance. Only a well understood and clear mind in both the side can give out a clear love.

One should also see to their family background and other criteria before stepping into love (applicable for both). Don't pain yourself later on. In the name of love so many are involving in unwanted relationship(hope you understand) this for sure alarms all the parents. Parents are always cautious and concerned about their child'd welfare and character; in such a case we must be so much grateful to our parents. For all they have did is a selfless love towards us. What they expect is our happiness no parent is wild; even if they are let us not worry about that and feel free to thank them for having grown us. We have to 'Pay'rent for our Parent. Try to figure out what are all our parents expect us to do and fulfill it up to the maximum that you can(preferably every wish of them).

Coming to the topic of Love; most parents inhibit this since they want their kind of girl and most of them now are showing a green for love marriages. Some have to be convinced and so on. The important thing we have to think is our career. So many are losing their career life in the pretext of love and many are up to filmy things. Love will be sweet, beautiful etc initially but once there is a misunderstanding it becomes so wild as a nuclear reaction goes. Love chunks your thoughts and never lets you focused. Failure and mishaps will definitely rupture your heart. Don't be live your mind; listen to your heart what it tells. Love can escalate one to a greater height at same time it can even shatter one in to pieces. To be safe do the right work at the right time. When being a kid, be a kid. When being a student, be a student. When being an adult, be an adult. When being a parent, be a parent. When being a grandparent, be a grandparent.

Love is not a thing between a boy and girl. It is selfless and spreads to all right from a child, tree, pup, etc. and it is infinite. One thing for sure, all these so-called love stuffs arise in adolescence due to our hormones. Understand the purpose for what we have born and what we have to do and never let the time tick away in your life meaninglessly. After all life is short and you can never guess what will happen. Do your best and leave the rest to God. Accept all the blows and praises. Whatever has to happen will happen. Lets be aware of this and plan our life accordingly. Love all; Serve all. Help ever; Hurt never. Thanks.

AAYIRATHIL ORUVAN Could have been in parts


That movie which deserves 10/5!!! I'll be placing this about all time finacial failure, yet critically acclaimed. 

The much expected and the hyped film hit the screen of the eve of Pongal this year. As the songs of the film went places the film created big buzz in the Industry. The director himself had given some good films which added some more craze to it. Selvaragavan’s movie always had some kind of love making scene’s and this film have no low marks on it because it runs on Adventure. Story is based issue between Pandiyas and Chollas happened in 13th century and runs into fictional fantasy in today's world.

First half of the film runs on the Adventurous Trekking of the Peoples to follow the Cholas dynasties remains. Selvaragavan palns to showcase a Tamil movie in a way that it had not been shown, so decided the shooting to happen on a adventurous spots so his imaginative power took the film to Vietnam. Introduction of every important character is fine, so the first half is for a lot of fantasy and lovemaking. Second half starts of with a different note.

Second half must can be understood well if you can understand Tamil, by the word Tamil I mean pure form of Tamil. Actors have done their part in this session but editing and direction failed, gladiator like scene doesn’t fit in movie. Having said that the director had shoot the film for almost 6 hours it is definitely not easy to bring it to half. Some scene are not clear because of the editing especially the scene which show the hidden manhole were they try something like Hollywood(MAGNUS GOLD).

Attempt was alright but the film would have been clearer if it had been spiltted to two parts and I’m sure it would have gone places. But this kind of movies are in acute need for Tamil film Industry. Hats off to Selvaragavan and his group.

=>Songs were good; but scores are not fine More experienced Composer could have used.
=>No person can bring that much of Army to field across border Logical error!
=>Editing could have been even more good .
=>Graphics took too much of time but there is no little sign of excellence
=>Some many Pandiya characters, but so little to play! (wastage of characters).

$>Awesomatic proudness that you get after reading books like Ponniyin Selvan, Udayar, Gangai Konda cholan
$>Genius stroke by sending group of people across border to isolation, there by preserving their culture and tradition
$>Choice of actor for every role.
$>Sequencing of scenes.
$>Dramatical Story line, More point to Selva's imagination.

UPDATE: Bold indicates addition, Strikethrough indicates my misery
After reading Ponniyin Selvan, I can no longer hold my excitement - If there is uncut version available in DVD I'd buy it!!! I'm listening to Pemmane and Thaai thinra manne and literally crying and my metaphorically my heart sheds blood.
