Seven Years as Locomente!!!


Okay, first things first – I loooooooooooove celebrations. More so when the day is as special as today – Locomente turns 7 years today. Yay!!! Interestingly, the writer in me was also born today. Of course, there was a phase before that when I was struggling to let my thoughts flow through pen onto the paper. Those times seem to be another era now. Pens are papers are replaced by laptops, MS Word and what not! In fact, that Diwali afternoon seven years before is still fresh I my mind – I wrote my first post on my personal computer. Which reminds me – have you heard of this term, “seven-year itch”? Apparently, it is a psychological term which suggests that happiness in a relationship declines after around year seven of a marriage. Well, marriage or any relationship for that matter, alright? And I am glad that Locomente and I have not only survived but also lived a happy 7 years and cheers for a forever and beyond!

My Thoughts
The first instalment in director Vetrimaaran’s ambitious-epic trilogy Vadachennai is a gangster film indeed, but with a twist! Anbu (Dhanush) is a national level carom board player and a starry eyed young man who gets lucky with love when he accidentally meets Padma (Aishwarya Rajesh). However, a simple argument between Anbu and a local goon results in twist of events which eventually transforms the fate of not only Anbu but also many others – Senthil (Kishore), Guna (Samuthirakani) and Velu (Pawan).

From the book blurb
Hi, I'm Keshav, and my life is screwed. I hate my job and my girlfriend left me. Ah, the beautiful Zara. Zara is from Kashmir. She is a Muslim. And did I tell you my family is a bit, well, traditional? Anyway, leave that.

Zara and I broke up four years ago. She moved on in life. I didn't. I drank every night to forget her. I called, messaged, and stalked her on social media. She just ignored me.

However, that night, on the eve of her birthday, Zara messaged me. She called me over, like old times, to her hostel room 105. I shouldn't have gone, but I did... and my life changed forever.

This is not a love story. It is an unlove story.

My Thoughts
’96 which is written and directed by C. Prem Kumar is a beautiful dedication to first love and its ability to change people’s lives forever. K Ramakrishnan aka Ram and Jananki Devi S aka Janu, who are classmates, love each other. Due to certain situations, they part their ways. However, their love for each other cherished in heart and they continue to remain as an important part of their lives although they are miles apart. What happens when they meet after 22 years forms the rest of the story.

Virtuous Cycle

The water seemed unusually calm;
Reflecting the clear blue sky.
Even the breeze was gentle;
Like the gentle caress of a loved one.
The mountains around seemed picturesque too;
Blending into the horizon like soulmates do.
The grasses were tender and young;
In the perfect shade from an amateur painter's pallette.
