    looks like a good movie. An academy award nominee for best film.

    Plz review..

    Have not been watching any movies lately.. so couldnt give any personal recommendations Responds:

    Looks interesting. Will watch in a couple of hours since it’s on NFLX Instant Play.

    Michael Nyqvist (who plays the journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the Swedish crime thrillers The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) plays the lead role in your recommendation. We like him.

    Another useless statistic – CNN’s top song of the year is “Why this kolaveri di”!!! Responds:

    We are killing ourselves!

    Henceforth, we’re gonna only watch Murdoch’s Unfair & Unbalanced channel aka Fox.

    Danush and Talent powerhouse Shruti Haasan will now act in hollywood to torment you for the rest of your life 😛 Responds:

    If your Hollywood prediction comes to pass, we’ll watch only Korean films for the rest of our lives!

      By the way, if you see that Nadippu Puli Nadana Sooravali Vasanam Bheerangi (loosely translater to “A tiger of acting, a dancing typhoon, a cannon of dialog delivery”) Kamal Haasan, who is roaming around somewhere in east cost for his Vishwaroopam, then use one of the 3 recent protesting techniques – Slapping, Flinging shoe and Hunger Strike, to convey your sentiments on his recent movies. 😀 Responds:

      That Tamil description (above) of Kamal’s supposed talents was funny. 😉

      Of course, Ulaga Madayan, the senile Thiruttu LaKaBa of Kollywood, is unworthy of all those honorifics.

      BTW, here’s Ulaga Madayan’s latest interview on Vishwaroopam, Shruti, Akshara etc.

        Tamil Description – I stole it from Arunachalam. Watch from 8:20

        That Interview – The senile megalomaniac maybe losing his memory.

        He made the bi-lingual Aalavandhan after Hey Ram and he made another bi-lingual Mumbai Xpress after Aalavandhan. Responds:

        You write: The senile megalomaniac maybe losing his memory….He made the bi-lingual Aalavandhan after Hey Ram and he made another bi-lingual Mumbai Xpress after Aalavandhan.

        But Aalavandhan and Mumbai Xpress were not made/directed by Kamal Haasan.

        They were directed by Suresh Krishna and Singeetham Sreenivasa Rao respectively. Ulaga Madayan only featured in them while Hey Ram was made/directed by Kamal.

        So in a sense Kamal Haasan is right in describing Vishwaroopam as “My first bi-lingual since Hey Ram.”

          Maybe but then he didn’t have to make a reference to Dasavatharam which was not produced or directed by him. “Dasavathaaram got dubbed into Hindi, but the vocabulary was twisted.”

          Aalavandhan was Kamal’s story and I think he also got credit for Screenplay.

          Kamal produced Mumbai Xpress and also took story, screenplay and dialogue credits.

          Anyway, who cares what he has to say.

          Let him make a original movie that reflects the skill and experience expected out of a veteran of 50 years.


          Very true, for someone with five decades in the movie business he is most unimpressive.

          Kamal shines only because of sewage like Vikram, Surya etc flowing around him.
