300 the film

 300

After seeing 300 film today, it came to my mind to write a short review about the film overall from my view. I never expected this movie to be this much superb actually, I thought the movie was kind of legendry fighting like in Gladiator, Alexander where the movie is fully focused on the leader only whereas people don’t care about the soldiers but to my surprise this is not that kind, here 300 soldiers are the role models about how they strived hard to fight their enemy etc.

300 the movie is actually the adaption of a novel called 300 which is inspired based on the Battle of Thermopylae. This battle has some unique things to note about that according to Wikipedia “the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC, an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian Empire at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the Persians for three days in one of history’s most famous last stands.”

So the total numbers of soldier for the Spartans were only 300 who fought against the Achaemenid Persia containing 60,000 – 300,000. It is highly impossible to tackle that much soldiers just by having 300 on your side but this film has made you proved how it is possible.

Also one thing to be noted in this film is that one cannot win the battle just by having an highest number of soldiers until make sure they are efficient. There is no word about visual FX which has played a very big role than the artists.

CBFC India has rated this movie as A, so it is recommend for children and pregnant ladies to avoid watching this movie since it contains explicit violent. My overall verdict is that this film is completely new and superb with high end visuals which will surely enrich your entertainment.

What i did with my new camera !

It was last week that my brother ordered a new digital camera Nikon Coolpix S9 with 6.1 mega pixels. We ordered it via Sify Online mall which costs around 10k in Indian rupees. The camera is really a worth piece when I added 1GB SD card that costs another 1.5k. Although I am not an expert in photography I have passionate to take photos.

This gadget has all the features that simulate the photo taken and makes your look like it was taken by an expert photographer. From one touch portrait to automatic red eye corrector with various modes for different occasions.

As the first part of trying this camera I took some snaps here. To store these photos online I brought a pro account for $24 in Flickr (A yahoo company) which is one of my favorite photo sharing sites.

I like photography very much and fanatical with it since childhood. Especially when you see something beautiful and if you want to reproduce that vista then the only way is to take a photograph of it. Actually a picture says 1000 words but nice photographs express more than that.

I am now working ion digitalizing all my past golden times via digital storage. We can return back to our past hood only when you see those photographs that capture the memories in it. So my kind request for everyone is whether you have hard copies of your old memories or under developed stage of negative rolls please scan it digitally and store it in secure place so that you can retrieve it whenever you want and it remains undestroyed.

A.R Rahman’s pray for United Nations [Video]

A.R Rahman does magic again after Vande Mataram now its UN Anthem.

My music Legend A.R Rahman about whom I blog often, now gave me a chance to write about his recent magic which made me to unknowingly publicize, since I am affected by Rahmania (People addicted by Rahman’s Music).

This post is about his “Pray for me Brother” Song dedicated to UN’s anthem for its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) campaign. According to A.R Rahman he strongly believed that Music had the power to change the lives of the people and I too agree that.

A report from Zeenews says that Rahman has sung this song in english to indicate that statement from India for which english is choosed as best form of expression.

This is Rahman’s First English song, released by Universal Music that was shot in black and white by Bharatbala Production (Vande Mataram). This is the world’s first music video shot in the mobile cinemascope format. This song was written by Blaaze and composed by our legend.

“Poverty and hunger have no religion or gender and this song is to inspire people to do a little bit about the world. We all believe in a creator and even a prayer can change things,” – A.R Rahman.

Do you personally feel that Music has the power to change the lives of people ? Are you agreeing to A.R rahman? ok Why don’t watch the video below and speak out your comment !

Mani Ratnam’s Guru Dialogs

Last Friday i saw Guru in my local cineplex, i had no words to speak about the film expect one “Just go ahead and watch it”.

This film is powered by A.R Rahman’s Music, Mani Ratnam’s Creativity and Abhishek Bachan’s Performance. All the three powers blended and mixed together actually.The highlights of the film are Abhishek @ Gurubhai ka Dialogs.. Each and every word is dashing and cool. Even inspirational,i don’t have doubt in it.

You can know more about the film Guru here.

I Collected some of Guru (Abhishek Bachan) Dialogs which i hope you will surely like.

Below are those rocking words…

There is a saying in our village
if people say bad things about you.
you must be doing something good.

if a law can be made in a day
it can be changed in a day.

i only know one thing…
there is only one person like
me here… only one Guru.

If you don’t dream
you will be stuck to your village
all your life.

I don’t fear the public.
I am the public.

i don’t want to walk…
i want to run.

Hope you all Enjoy it…Also it would be helpful if someone posts me the Hindi version.

 # Update Jan 23 | Srinivasan Paul Joseph has greatly helped me in sorting out other beautiful dialogs in Guru Film. Check his contribution below:

What’s wrong in dreaming big?

[When asked by the Judges why he’s not able to talk the previous day and today want to talk]

Yesterday you were saying about my crimes, today I want the Public know about them from my mouth

[When asked by the Judges how came he can speak now, in whole trial he was not able to talk loudly and whispers in his Wife’s ears]

I’m a Poor Merchant. My voice is my money and I wanted to save them.

[When asked by the Judges why he was breaking the law]

Fifty years before there is one man who broke every law and you still call him the Mahatma. Only when Rules are broken you will ever be able to do Revolutions. I learned that somebody wants beating while other wants money. I given beating to those who needed it and money to those who expected it. That’s all

[After the Speech in Trial]

See? You’ve given me 5 minutes time. I’ve finished my speech within 4 and half minutes. Half minute is my Profit. This is my Business.

And also he helped me to translate the dialogs in Tamil too:

“எங்க கிராமத்துல ஒன்னு சொல்லுவாங்க, யாராச்சும் உன்னைக் குத்தம் சொன்னா நீ நல்லது பண்ணிக்கிட்டிருக்கன்னு தெரிஞ்சுக்க”

“ஒரே நாளில் சட்டம் உருவாக்கலாமுன்னா ஒரே நாளில் அதை உடைக்கவும் முடியும்”

“எனக்குத் தெரிஞ்சதெல்லாம் ஒன்னுதான், என்னை மாதிரி இங்கே இருப்பது ஒருத்தன்தான், அது குருதான்.”

“நீ கனவு காணலன்னா கிராமத்திலேயே வாழ்க்கை முழுசும் முடங்கிக்கிடக்கவேண்டியதுதான்”

(விசாரணையில்) “நான் மக்களைப் பார்த்து பயப்படவேண்டியதில்லை நான்தான் மக்கள்”

“நான் நடக்க விரும்பல, ஓட விரும்பறேன்”

“பெரிசா கனவு கான்றதுல என்ன தப்பு?”

(விசாரணையில் நேற்று பேசாமல் இன்று ஏன் பேச முயற்சி செய்கிறீர்கள் என்று கேட்டதற்கு) “நேத்து என்னோடு தப்புக்களைப் பற்றி நீங்க மட்டும்தான் பேசினீங்க. அது தப்பா இல்லையான்னு இன்னைக்கு நான் மக்களிடம் பேசனும்.”

(இதுவரை விசாரணையில் சத்தமாக பேச இயலாமல் தன்னுடைய மனைவியின் காதில் மெதுவாக சொல்லியே பேசியவருக்கு இன்று மட்டும் எப்படி பேசும் சக்தி வந்தது என்று கேட்டதற்கு) “நான் ஏழை வியாபாரிங்க, என்னுடைய குரல்தான் என்னுடைய சொத்து. அதை நான் சேமிக்க வேணாமா?”

(ஏன் நிறைய சட்டங்களை மீறினீர்கள் என்று கேட்டதற்கு) “ஐம்பது வருஷத்துக்கு முன்னாடி இருந்த ஒருத்தர் எல்லா சட்டங்களையும் உடைத்தார் அவரை இன்னிக்கும் மகாத்மான்னு சொல்றீங்க. சட்டங்களை உடைக்காமல் புரட்சிகள் செய்ய முடியாது. என்னிடம் சிலர் மிதித்தால்தான் வேலையாகும் என்றனர் சிலர் பணம் கொடுத்தால்தான் வேலையாகும் என்றனர். எங்கே உதைக்கனுமோ அங்கே உதைச்சேன் எங்கே பணம் கொடுக்கணுமோ அங்கே பணத்தாலடிச்சேன். இது தப்பா?”

(விசாரணையில் பேசி முடித்தபிறகு) “பார்த்தீங்களா? அஞ்சுநிமிஷம் பேச அனுமதி கொடுத்தீங்க நான் நாலரை நிமிஷத்துல பேசிமுடிச்சிட்டேன். அரை நிமிஷம் லாபம். இதுதான் என்னுடைய தொழில்.”

Thanks Srinivasan for your additional contributions..

Happy Birthday Day to Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam referred to as the Missile Man of India , Current President of India celebrates his 76th birthday today. On this day, we must recognize this great man for his talent and intelligence. This blog post would remind you of this great mind and his vision towards India.

Thinking is progress. Non-thinking is stagnation of the individual, organisation and the country. Thinking leads to action. Knowledge without action is useless and irrelevant. Knowledge with action, converts adversity into prosperity.

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

On seeing the personal life of Mr.Kalam he practices vegetarianism, teetotalism and celibacy. Happy to know that he is a vegan like me. Kalam is a scholar of Tirukkural; in most of his speeches, he quotes at least one kural. He reads the Qur’an regularly and also the Bhagavad Gita.

Because of his popularity among Indian Youths, MTV-India recently nominated him as one of the prospectives for its MTV India Youth Icon for the year 2006 Award. You can nominate him as MTV Youth Icon by sms. SMS ICON APJ to 6882. Read IndiaVision 2020 a book based on vision for the New Millennium by A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

A gift from my old Friend

Humar Bake, one of my oldest and best friend who was once a goldsmith does all kind of jewellery works. He doesnt even know about computers or i am the one who induced him about the internet and its background.

Before 4 years he got married to a french nationality girl and by the french law he too became a citizen. Since he was a goldsmith by professional, he feared a little regarding his future in france. On his arrival he did a diploma course in paris on hardware and began to work as hardware mechanic. The main postive part is that he knows french well and that boosted his work function. i never expected that he would become an hardware mechanic since switching a profession isn’t that easy and through from goldsmith to computer field. Yesterday he came back to India and visited my home. He presented me this Flash cum Mp3 Player which can store 250 mb of data and music.

He could open a dell laptop in just a minute and thats what people say it as skill, for your reference he studied only upto 8th standard. Even if i go over there, i would surely feel a little harder since all the progs will be in french, although i know french i feel little bitter. After accepting his gift with a smiling face, i just rushed to try it and connected it in my system.

With some eagerness i just erased the firmware and the drive can no more play any songs until it is restored. Uhh… Huh and in other side sometimes the drive messes up because i dont have usb 2.0 so i logged in my friend’s computer and restored the firmware. Atlast its works cool, thanks to packardbell.com for thier support and downloads.

The Series of Love and Dating in my College.

For the past 5 years i could see a very fast development in India not mentioning the Economic side but lifestyle of indians. When we talk about cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai activities like dating etc been very familiar especially with teens and youths. You could even see teens who in the age range of 14-18 hang around the corners of lal-bagh park in bangalore, seem to date regurarly. But when comparing all this metro-city styles, the news about my college wont make you feel about anything big…

From my childhood i’ve studied in co-educational institutions and that make no sense of feeling for talking with girls.. or do i really need one to date with but when comparing others in college, its only been a week since our college started and i could see some of my friends proposed their love. That sounds funny, but in other side it may seriously hurt their education since a love that arised in a week must only be an infacutation and not the true love.

Most of the Girls are beautiful in my college except my class, thats a very disappointment and the pharse below comes true in my case.

99% of all Girls are beautiful the remaining 1% are not in my college but in my class

Well although i take wise decision before proposing or i dont have the need to but yet i feel like beautiful girls will boost my studies ! Confused on how they will boost my education ? Yeah its a simple logic, when you are surrounded by beautiful girls, you dont want to give up in any thing, stuffs and things we do to impress them turn to be creative, on other side and we always wanted to make ourself big before them which induces me to study well before them.

Usually its hard to say that you won’t fall in love, i mean its easy to say but following it usually depends on some factors. Maybe i have not yet falled in .. i want your comments on it…
