My Thoughts
2.0 is director Shankar’s sequel to the ambitious Endhiran which was released in 2010. Much loved robot - Chitti - is back with a bang, this time to accomplish a more meaningful task (In the prequel, most of Chitti’s capabilities were used only to woo the lady Sana. Remember the famous Mosquito mode!).

Little Dots of Hope!


The pain you have gifted me is big as the as the moon.

But, I count on the smiles you have spread on my face which has always touched my heart and kiss my soul. They are many – as countless as the stars. Doesn’t one or the other star shine even on the darkest of nights? 

And those stars are my little dots of hope which keeps me going in life!

Reality Check

We often hear people say, “Stay positive”… “Hope for the best”…. “This too shall pass” and so on.  We are also sometimes asked to “Count on the blessings” and maybe realize “Everything happens for a reason”. Of course, then there are some other spiritual advice as well – “Its fate, what to do?” and that “God is great”. As if enough is unsaid, there is this concept of Law of Attraction which says that universe is listening and hence we should think ONLY positive. It asks us to be grateful and manifest what we want through meditation.

My question is – what is your take on this idea of “stay positive”… “Universe is listening”… “Count your blessings”… “Trust in God” and all that?

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).
