Andhra meals...

As Chiranjeevi's new political party "Praja Rajyam" is gaining popularity across the state, and as more politicians from other parties, especially from TDP are joining his party, Chandra Babu Naidu, the leader of TDP didn't have any other option than requesting his brother-in-law and the popular actor Balakrishna @ Balaiah to campaign for his party.

At a time when TDP was facing some downturn, Baliah's active involvement into the politics, did bring some boost to the party men. Balakrishna was also instrumental in bringing in some independant MLA's into the party and moreover, retaining few leaders who were suspected to jump ships.

Chandra Babu Naidu should have been so happy until this twist happened...

According to the media reports, in a recent interview, our Baliah have told the media "If people wish to see me as Chief Minister, I will become Chief Minister"

Jai Jandakeshwara... Plz help Naidu....

Ross Island @ the Andamans and few Thathuvams...

On day two of our trip to the Andaman Islands, we went to this tiny island called Ross Island, which was just few kilometers away from the Port Blair.

In short the history of the island goes like this - During the British rule, this island was like the administrative capital of the Andaman Island. The British had all their offices, church, hospitals and residents constructed in this Island.

Then during the second world war, the island was attacked by the Japanese, who later took control of the island for next few years. After the world war, again the Ross Island came under the British control.

Then there was a big earthquake in the island - ruining all the buildings in the island. Today only the ruins of these buildings could be seen in the island. The damaged Church in this island have already come in many tamil movie songs (Uyirin Uyirae in Kakka Kakka)

What was more interesting to me were - the trees that had grown over the ruined buildings. The roots of these trees could be seen spreading all over the walls of the ruined buildings.

We grabbed the island from the nature and fought among ourselves to control it, but finally the Nature itself is taking the control over its property.

Paasathuku Kannu illae...

Yesterday evening, suddenly my mother told me that I have gone thin in the recent times and surprisingly my better half was nodding her head to accept what my mother had said.

but the truth is that, the trousers that were correctly fitting me, one month ago, are very tight now. I hope they weren't making fun of me.

Shyaam in Ungalil yaar adutha Prabu Deva!!!

I was watching this program - "Ungalil yaar adhutha Prabhu Deva" in Vijay TV, this weekend. Again this is another reality dance show and this time Vijay TV is searching for the replacement(!!!) for Prabhu Deva.

Not only the title was funny, their choice of Actor Shyam as one of the judges for this show is more ridiculous. It is not that this guy should come as a judge for any reality show. The way he was giving his judgment was so irritating.

For no reasons, the great dancer inside Shyaam was shouting at every contestants. I don't know if this guy will perform better if given the same one week time and the same practice.

I think the TV channel would have asked him to make at least two people cry for every week - so that they can show those footage and increase the TRPs.

After seeing this guy as the judge, now I feel our Namitha was far better as the judge :-)

Some years back there was a singing competition in Jaya TV in which singer SPB was the judge. SPB was fantastic for that job.

Why Endhiran was sold to the Sun Pictures???

I think their latest venture "Aegan", have made the Ayngaran Movies run out of money. and also another tsunami called "Villu" is approaching them :-)

That could some of the reasons why they sold the production rights of the Rajinikanth starrer "Endhiran" to the Sun Pictures. Endhiran is a Sun Pictures movie now!!!

On seeing how the Sun TV made their duppa movie "Thenavattu", run successfully, I think "Endhiran" will surely become a super hit and it will rank 1st in their countdown for atleast 6 months.

Got Married!!!!

Yes! I m a Caged Lion now...

I wanted to write about this long time back - in fact, before our marriage itself - but was held up a lot at that time.

Gomathi and I got married on November 3, 2008 @ Chennai., with the blessings of parents, relatives and friends. Life after marrige is really Great!!!


The Andamanz...

We went to the Andaman Islands after our marriage. If compared with the dirty beaches here in Chennai, the beaches in Andaman are real heaven.

Our long time desire to fly in an aeroplane and to travel by ship got fulfilled in this trip. The trip was fantastic.


The Mumbai Attack...

Another sad incident in the recent times. As a normal citizen, I can only pray, such incidents should never happen in future.

The Indian News channels used this incident as an opportunity to increase their TRPs.

By the way, why some of them were searching for Raj Thakre during this attack? May be they wanted to spoil the already spoiled situation.


Varanam Ayiram

The first half of the movie was good and the second half was boring. Surya's acting was good. He had put in plenty of efforts for this movie, but nothing of that was needed for this story.

I have a feeling that some other actor should have played that father's role.

When compared to her other movies, Sameera Reddy looked more graceful in this movie.


back @ work...

back to work after 3 weeks break. Its almost one week, since I have reported back at work, but still haven't pulled even a single nail. Trying to figure out the first nail for a loooooooong time.

Hope I will find that soon :-)
