Maargazhi thingal allavaa...

Today marks the beginning of maargazhi - a month of devotion, early morning bhajans, huge kolams, poosani poo, vaikunda ekadhashi, some pleasant Madras weather, the mist, thiruvadhirai - I will be updating this blog with the different kolams I draw every morning! The below is a sample from last year :)



I began this month with what I thought would be a good movie - Neethane en pon vasantham. If the movie had run for 90 mins totally, it would have made an impact. 153 minutes running time did no one any good. Especially the 2nd half called for some serious editing.

The director was confused, forgot the story midway, borrowed heavily from Alaipayuthey, the dialogue writer was somewhere stuck using just this one piece at least thrice - nee en inga vandha :P, the editor forgot to edit the 2nd half of the movie. On hindsight, he forgot to edit the whole movie and Maestro Ilayaraja - well - the less said the better!

Jeeva has matured as a performer, Samantha is a doll (and just that), Santhanam's comedy is spot on and new comer Vidyulekha Raman is the pick! She and Santhanam totally carry the movie on their shoulders.

The costumes are well designed which is a big plus.

All of you please watch this movie - yaam petra inbam peruga ivvaiyagam! ;-)

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

  2. Updating the blog with your kolams is a great idea. Kolams have mathematical pattern in them and are also ecologically relevant. And, maargazhi is one of my favourite months of the year - the coolness, the season of Christmas, the no-sweating time and so on.

    Deepa, a happy maargazhi to you.

    Joy always,
    Susan
