The Rant – 2

Vasant’s latest movie, Satham Podathey was exceptionally bad. Though it had its moments, on a whole it was a huge letdown.

Nitin Sathya did much better in Chennai 600028. Prithiviraj is soon going to be dubbed as the hero for ‘feel good’ movies. Good luck !!

Jodi No. 1 – Season 2 was dramatic. Simbhu probably got more air-time than anyone in the show. He also added a piece of marketing for his upcoming movie, Kalai. Proved again to be an immatured teenager by cracking constant jokes on the compere. Rumor has it that Divyadarshini is reported to have nightmares about Simbu.

Vijay TV doesn’t sport commercials during these shows. Donno how Rupert Murdoch can run a successful-yet-loss-making unit for so long. With such an elastic budget, they can also afford to throw the entire videos of these shows on You Tube or on Vijay TV itself.

But they have to be appreciated for improving the standard of television shows. And that’s one reason I think, marketers should start advertising on Vijay TV.

On the other hand, Sun TV’s Mastana Mastana was awful. Bad Direction.

The December ’07 Marghazhi Music Festival is on. As usual, I’m missing it. But just look at this long list of performances by artiste.

Sudha Raghunathan and Sanjay Subramaniam top the numbers of performances with 14 prime-time performances. Nithyashreem, Bombay Jayshree, Unikrishnan, Sikkil Gurucharan, Neyveli Santhanagopalan, O. S. Thiagarajan, Malladi Brothers and others follow with atleast a dozen performances. Imagine the case of attending these artists’ last show for the season. Should be a rough one.

I envy the ones who get to watch a Sanjay Subramaniam show and eat onion rava during the break.

Ananda Vikatan stopped Sujatha’s hugely popular Katrathum Petrathum, few months back.

Very recently, he started a new section on Kungumam called Sujatha Pathilgal. And it’s a pity that Kungumam still scans its weekly issues for their online presence.

If we are repeating the same joke of sending Indian movies for Oscar, let’s just send, Chennai 600028 and get over with it. Atleast we can inform the academy that this an romantic/sports genre movie.

Someone needs to tell our Oscar Recommendation Academy not to send some weirdo flicks.

    I would love to read if you write a post explaining why you didn’t like the movie.

    I really admire Vikatan team for their excellent work on their web site. Without regard of my OS/browser changes their site continued to work as usual. I think they are doing a great job.

    Thanks for writing! 🙂

  3. Thanks Venkat. I changed it. My mistake.

    Unfortunately, I don’t intend to write that. Padamey waste-u, ithula atha pathi ezhutharathu inum waste.

  4. Guru – Vijay TV does have ads in its telecast in India.
    The one we get at US is like a recorded cassette (that is around 2 weeks old) and deliberately ads are taken out.
