(((((((((( Rajini ))))))))))

Pera Kette udane Chumma Athirudhule....

This tag is shaking the film world literally, if you don’t understand the above tag, ask me.

I am atlast getting out of the sick bed after attacked by RajiniGuniya, yes it took so long to recover. The movie Sivaji is definitely a great treat for any movie fan. Before even I talk about this movie, I strongly suggest you to watch this movie. After all, this movie is worth for the money you spend for the ticket, its unlimited buffet with all navarasas.

Which Film made me as a Rajini Fan? Ask my dad!
Thanks to him for putting up with a Rajini Maniac. He painted our house just before I did draw (tried) Rajini image on the house walls, later I came up with an idea to cover it with Rajini poster, that’s the first entry of Rajini in to our house, later after every release of his film, posters kept on adding. My dad had no complaints, instead he started buying me "Rajini Fans" a monthly magazine. I will be waiting for each edition to check out the free middle page poster. I am proud to say all my family members are Rajini Fans too. My mom is not just a Fan, She is fanatic about him, one other reason for me liking her. I was going gaga all over for every movies got released, will dress like him and keep uttering his dialogues. Parents could not see their kid suffering, so they want to put a full stop to this, guess where they send me. Boarding school??? Nahhhh. They took me to Rajini. Thanks to my uncle who is pretty influential in Cine and Political arena. I was so dressed up to imitate my super star, when I saw him, I was hit so hard with his simplicity, soon took of my coolers off and folded my shirt collar down.

He came out with white pajamas, white sandals and white strapped watch to compliment his color with a huge welcoming smile on his face. You can’t feel cozier than this. He is down to the earth and humble to max. His deeds will speak forever even if his career ends. As a Bus conductor he took the ticket to the filmdom and now he drives all the hearts in South India. His image is such a magnum like his 60 feet effigy.

Coming to Sivaji, The Boss:
The hullabaloo is not hogwash - Rajinikanth has proved himself again. The wait was for over couple of years to me. He announced that Shankar will make his next movie in Chandramukhi's 200th Day Celebration, today Chandramukhi is still running 825th day breaking all the records on its way.
Sivaji, The movie is very captivating and evenly paced making sure the viewer never loses interest. The first half is filled with humor mostly handled by Rajini and Vivek. Second half sees the Superstar in a different cast. The scenes are action-packed with Rajini at the helm of affairs.

The comedy scenes were too hilarious. To pick a few , Rajini trying to become fair (Manager: Sir Ungalaku ippo enna venum, Sivaji: mmmmm Fair N Lovely), chilly scene (Wash room enge?) and Vaanga Pazhagalam Vaanga Pazhagalam did bring on wide laughs but references to a couple of dark skinned neighborhood girls seemed in bad taste.

Story can be written in Single line, but Rajini made it soooooper fine. He comes to India from USA as a Software Professional with 200-crore to start Free Educational Trust and Hospital in India. But evil force will stop him from doing this. Because soon after the 200-crore Sivaji is turned into a pauper and left with just one rupee coin handed over to him by the Bad Guy.
Intermission sign is flashed and there is such a buzz in the auditorium that it has to be experienced to be believed. Now I sat in my seat for a change.

The second half is _________. Oh man you should watch it and help me completing the blank.
When Rajini flips the one rupee coin, it just shows that how an everyday thing can instantly become the next Style item. When Superstar mouths his dialogues in the movie, they just send waves of excitement to his fans just by hearing it. A simple verse or a more intricate one, our Superstar has no problem delivering it with Charm and Charisma. Pera Kette udane Chumma Athirudhule....Don’t expect for any Logic in the movie, but lots of Magic. Last 10 minutes is like Fire-Crakers Finish, Just watch to feel it. BOSS- Mottai BOSS da.

His style, after this movie the critics says "Rajini does not do any style, but, whatever he does becomes style" Need say more? His unique style gives him a momentum to perform unthinkable feats. Youth and kids want to participate in his identity. A Rajini film offers what comic super heroes like Spiderman do - goodwill and hope also just as James Bond's questionable brand of machismo has its followers in Britain, Rajnikanth's chauvinism and bravura stokes the fire in Tamil Indian youth.

For the Past 10 Years I haven’t seen such a young looking Rajini. A special Thanks to Manish Malhotra and Make up crew and the master mind behind this, Shankar. Rajini’s costumes were splendid and displayed his style in every inch of it. What a man and what a style, no one can beat this style which comes from Superstar Rajini. And Superstar looks much younger and ‘cool’. No matter what he wears it becomes the next fashion statement and he becomes a great trendsetter. Despite being 56 years old (an age when actors usually calls it quits), he rose again to never before heights and in the process won the hearts of one and all, young and old. When Baba failed, he went on record saying that if an elephant falls down, it will take a while to get up back up on its feet. But if a horse falls down, it simply gets up and carries on - and he has proven to be the horse in this case without a doubt.

Sivaji also has the credit of being the Costliest venture ever undertaken in the Tamil film industry so far. Sivaji is the first Indian film to incorporate the latest 4K resolution technology that so far was used only in big-budget Hollywood films.

Not only in South India, Sivaji has taken the entire world in to its Charisma.
For instance, Sivaji has become the first Tamil film ever to be featured in the UK top 10. ‘Sivaji – The Boss’ has debuted at No. 9 position. In its opening weekend, the film has collected £ 167,607 [approx. Rs.1.36 Crores] from 12 screens, with the per screen average working out to £ 13,967. Sivaji has taken one of the best openings for an Indian film in UK! In terms of screen average, the Tamil film has not only overtaken Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, but also surpassed Hollywood biggies like Fantastic Four, Ocean’s Thirteen and Pirates of the Caribbean in its opening weekend (June 15 to 18). So far, Sivaji is the first Indian movie to average the highest in the first week collection in UK.

So many records are broken and so many records to be broken. Also from this movie Rajini becomes the highest paid actor in Asia. That is because only this actor can steer any movie in to a block buster, theaters go houseful just for his presence, the most bankable actor for any producer or any stories. Kerala, where movie is not to be treated in a grand way, Sivaji broke record there too, the film is released across the state in 72 theaters.

The Competition from India was from North India, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Sad!!! Staring: Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Preity Zinta, Lara Dutta and Big B. On the other Side its One N Only RajiniKanth. Pretty guessable result of the Clash, most of the JBJ shows was replaced by Sivaji. It suits the dialogue from the Sivaji itself.

Kannna....Pannienga Than Kootama varum , Singam single than varum.

On the lighter side, I heard this funny Breaking news- car parking and cyle stand fee collection for sivaji was found to be more than the film collection of jhoom barabar joom.

What are you waiting for, Go Catch Sivaji, Its Running all over the World, 27 Countries. To name few
India, Srilanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan, Korea, Australia, New zeland, USA, UK, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Russia, South Africa, Cannada, Norway, France, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Argentina, Spain..oops I almost reached 27th.

Now I started counting days for his next movie, without knowing when, but it will be worth waiting. If not Rajini, who else would I have admired?

"I saw a fire in his eyes and an enthusiasm coupled with an urge to prove himself. I immediately realized that he was not just one more run-of-the-mill aspirant" - K.Balachander.
Thank you KB, for bringing such a bright pole star as our SUPER STAR!

The Guys' Rules

At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down. Finally, the guys' side of the story. (I must admit, it's pretty good.) We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really.

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; but did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.
