As time goes by …

You must remember this:
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.
And when two lovers woo, they still say “I love you,”
On that you can rely, no matter what the future brings,
As time goes by . . .

Moonlight an’ love songs never out of date,
Hearts full of passion, jealousy an’ hate,
Woman needs man and man must have his mate,
That no one can deny . . .

It’s still the same old story, a fight for love an’ glory,
A case of do or die, the world will always welcome lovers,
As time goes by . . .

Dont jump the gun i havent become any poet to write this.This song a famous played by Sam in the movie casabalanca.I have seen this movie a couple of times its one of my all time favourites.The acting in the movie by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman is awesome.The dialogues are totally mesmerising.Romance and Love at its ultimate must watch 😀

Dasavatharam Interesting History

Dasavatharam is making waves among film buffs and ardent kamal fans like me are waiting for the movie to get released. The audio got launched recently in mega function.The movie involving kamal in juxtapose of characters right from an aged nanny to a research scientist and a 12th century vainava saint. Now there is an interesting history associated with the movie.During the medeival Chola period the kings were predominantly shaivites(followers of shiva) and kulothunga Chola 2 who stayed in Chidhambaram was a religious fanatic and harmed the peacefull coexistence of shaivites and vaishnavites.He removed the vishnu idol from the chidhambaram temple and it was vehemently opposed by the vaishnava followers.Notable among this was ramanujar who was forced to live in exile and ultimately thrown into sea tied up with the vishnu idol when he refused to worship shiva.This film has this as one of its plot in the story and one of the role kamal acts is of ramanujar and he is thrown into the sea this is is shown in the trailer 🙂 . I heard the story involves a complex plot based on Chaos theory let see what the ulaga nayagan comes up with this time.

12 Angry Men ! awesome movie

12 angry menA couple of days back i had the chance to view this movie The 12 angry men had heard about the movie long back watching it was amazing and totally entertaining movie.Movie released 50 years without any graphics,love,romance with a storyline on how prejudice obscures truth is scintillating.The film begins on a trial in a court about a boy who is charged of stabbing his father and the judge asks twelve people to brainstorm on the circumstantial evidence and come with a unanimous award whether to convict or release the convict.Initially all but one decide to send the convict to chair and the one person put forth arguments against sending the boy to the chair.This creates a lot of fuss among the other eleven and finally he convinces all to release the boy.The film revolves entirely in a single room where the discussion takes place neither the murder or any associated scenes are explicitly shown but the director uses the characters to give a picturesque of the entire incident.Truly amazing movie!

Movies its an addiction difficult to cure

I always watch quite a lot movies the bizarre thing is most movies i liked most of my friends get bored off many a times i used to curiously suggets some movies and get screwed for my taste.Recently Sivaji starring RajiniKanth(aka superstar) and directed by Shankar was relaesed and it was the most over rated over hyped movie i have seen and didnt like it much.I got a chance to see some good hollywood movies which were really good.

Schindler’s List:God this was a long overdue and i got a chance to have it this month.A real life story of Oscar Schindler who saved many jews during the holocaust.

V for Vendatta:This movie impressed me quite a bit but really hard to follow.Its againts totalitarian governments.

Farenheit 9/11:This is a scintillating documentary be Michael Moore on the controversies of september attacks.Have a go at it cool movie.

The Butterfly Effect:This is a movie based on chaos theory take an example if you have a chance to change certain events of your life what could be your present try this movie a cool one.

P.S:Not to mention waiting for the release of Dasavatharam by kamal hassan being an ardent kamal fan(read it veriyan).
