Swades – My fav scenes

Swades is one of my favourite movies in the recent times. I will write a post on the movie, the music and the lyrics later. For now, here are a couple of my favourite deleted scenes from the movie that were later released in the DVD:

Santhosha KaNNeerey/ Dil Se Re

I have always liked Santhosha kaNNeerey more than Dil Se Re. Maybe it’s because I listened to the Tamil version first. Anyway, I love the lyrics of both the songs (I like the words Santhosha KaNNeerey itself). What great lyrics that suits the mood of the song so beautifully!

Akkam Pakkam

After a long time, I saw a song yesterday that made me want to watch it again and again and again! 🙂 It’s the song ‘Akkam Pakkam’ from the movie Kireedam (Hope the spelling is correct!).

Oru Vaarthai Kaekka

Many lines of this song from the movie Ayya makes me ROTFL

Nee keadaikka vendum endru thundu seetta ezhudhi poattaen
Peachi amman kovil saami, paper saami aanadhu enna!

Oh nee kodutha kal kooda senkal saami aanadhaiyya

And here comes the best line:

Katta bomman uruvam poala unnai varainthu maraithae veitthaen,
Desapattru oviyam endru veettu suvatril appa maatta

You should watch the ‘oviyam’ of ‘kattabomman-poala-Sarathkumar’ shown in this song to fully appreciate this line 😉

Costumes in Mani Ratnam’s movies

Simple, Neat and Contemporary – That is how I will describe the costumes in Mani Ratnam’s movies. As far as his movies are concerned, you very rarely come across a costume that doesn’t suit the actors or that you don’t like. The costumes go well not only with the setting of the movie but also with the current trend and that makes you feel as though the characters are one among us. Though there is nothing extraordinary about the costumes in Mani Ratnam’s movies, the natural look and feel that they give to his movies is what makes it appealing and the costumes in his movies have always been an object of interest to me.

Guys, you can skip reading the rest of this post if you want to, since I am going to focus mainly on the costumes of the leading ladies of Mani Ratnam’s movies. 😉

Aayitha Ezhuthu VCD

I got the VCD of Aayitha Ezhuthu (seems DVD has still not been released) released by Moser Baer today. Neither the picture quality nor the sound quality is that good. 😦 So, don’t buy it unless you very badly want to watch the movie.


I came back after watching Sivaji just now. 😀 For the first time in my life, I missed the first few minutes of a movie in theatre. 😦 I have always been at the theater at least 20 minutes before the movie starts!

Random musings after watching the movie:

  • I am never going to like a Shankar’s movie completely (I could see it as a Shankar’s movie only more than Rajni’s in the first half), especially, the scenes where the hero woos the heroine or other scenes featuring the lead pair of the movie. (and in this movie, their family too!)
  • Rajni is the SUPERSTAR irrespective of whether he is Sivaji or MGR. 😉 He rulezzzzzzzz but only in the second half of the movie especially when he is the Mottai Boss 😀
  • The way Rajni reacts when he gets caught on the railway track is classic Rajni stuff.
  • Songs are picturized quite well. Athiradee as everyone said, was too good! I didn’t like Balleilakka that much.
  • I didn’t like that Suman that much. Raghuvaran will always be the perfect villain for Rajni! Imagine Raghuvaran delivering those dialogues of Suman! Would have been great!
  • Finally, the movie was exactly as I expected it to be, that is, not so great and not so bad either. 😉 And, Batsha, Padaiyappa and Annamalai will remain my favourite Rajni movies!
