Why Royal Old Monks didn’t win?!

Just imagine a similar situation for the Royal Old Monks had they won some games. Rahul Dravid, being the perfect student of the game and knowing well in advance of all this, wisely chose to not win continuous games for his side. Katrina giving a kiss would have been more than tempting for Dravid, but imagine Vijay Mallya on his hips – would have been disastrous 😳 😳 .

Hereby, salute Mr. Rock Solid Rahul Dravid for his Exxxtra Senselessry Perception

The IPL Experience

Offlate, most of my sleep has been deprived thanks to IPL (matches start at 10:30 PM for us here). It has brought out a lot of wonderful moments – Who can forget the Ponting celebrating with Ishant (even had an instance of him running all the way from slips to share something with him) in the first ever match and what about the sixes by Shane Warne off Symonds to win the game in the last over. My support for Dhoni went all the more up after his support to Sivamani during the incident at Bangalore (For the less informed, Bengalooru security guy dismantled Sivamani’s drums etc when he wanted to perform inside the ground after the match – maybe he didnt know who Sivamani was or was too bitter about their TEST T20 team 😆 )

Elsewhere Sreesanth after deservedly getting the slap from Harbhajan has been performing very well after that (Psst. From now, whenever sree is not doing his best all we need is someone to slap him). And before I forget, a special mention to the Cheerleaders, esp of Bangalore and now recently Jaipur 😛 and also the cute girl from Chennai Superkings (Couldn’t get foto 😦 ). Deccan Cheerleaders haven’t been bad either but poor girls have nothing to cheer about.

Not surprisingly the teams with the best or should i say innovative/fearless captains have topped the table like Chennai with Dhoni, Rajasthan with Warne, Delhi with Sehwag and Kolkatta with Dada‘s magic slowly catching up. yeah, Punjab too is on top but the credit of that need not go to Mr.Attitude Yuvi nor to Priety who has been hugging everyone in the squad except Sreesanth, no wonder he is crying hoarse. Shaun Marsh (along with Pathan/Bajji’s slap to Sreesanth) deserves that credit. He has been playing neat and wonderful cricketing shots with almost no slogging and its been a treat to watch.

And IPL has now given VVS a hairline fracture making it convenient for him to sit out of the remaining matches and let Gillie handle the embarassment – if only he had done that earlier, Deccan ‘Dischargers‘ might have found a way through to the top. Coz with Gillie’s captaincy somehow EVEN the ‘kill-me-i-wont-get-runs-but-waste-deliveries-Venugopal Rao’ is hitting boundaries. The less I write about Bangalore Old Monks err ‘Royal Challengers’ the better. Enough posts on them and their ‘I-have-constipation-Rahul-Dravid’ are over the web. Watching L Balaji a.ka. ‘Naayudu’ get a hatrick for Chennai has been one more pleasant memory from IPL – having played for some time with him and him being my friend’s friend, it was even more heartwarming 🙂

Now the tournament is interestingly poised with Rajasthan/Chennai almost set to enter the Semis with most likely Delhi and Punjab to follow suit unless Kolkatta/Mumbai spoil the party which should be interesting to see. Since Sachin is set to return for the match against CSK it should be a fabulous sight to watch him play alongside Sanath Jayasuriya.

Kuruvi – Unfortunately not a Gilli

If giving a blockbuster is difficult, even more difficult would be to follow it up with another one. Dharani with a hatrick of sorts in the form of Dhill/Dhool and Gilli comes up with yet another fast paced ‘hero smashes villain and saves people’ formula. With a big family to take care, Vettrivel (Vijay) in an effort to go to Malaysia takes up a one time job as a Kuruvi (a guy who moves stuff from Malaysia – Chennai). The issues he faces after reaching there in the form of Suman and gang and how Vijay brings Suman’s and Ashish Vidhyarthi’s illegal diamond business to CBI’s notice is the movie’s story. In between ofcourse is a love track between Vijay and Thrisha (Suman’s sister). Movie is an entertainer with comedy sprinkled (including a couple of non-parliamentary ones 😛 ) generously in the first half and action packed in the second. Scenes involving the diamond theft and escape with Thrisha to Chennai and the flight scenes and the ones involving Jeeva are taken from Vettam, malayalam movie. Contrary to reactions after audio release, Mozha Mozhanu seems to the winner in picturisation along with Happy New Year song. Thaen Thaen is unnecessary in the movie and could have been removed. On the other hand editing and Cinematography is good and Vidyasagar’s BGM in some places (the Malaysia club scenes/Cuddappah scenes) are very good. Suman is good as a villain though his voice is a bit soft to be menacing, the heavy built villain in the diamond ‘kvaary’ is good. Ashish Vidyarthi with doses of telugu dialogues does ok.

Pros :
Vijay’s comedy sense and dialogue delivery (he is becoming thinner and thinner day by day though 😳 )
Vivek

Cons :
Lots of logical potholes (surprisingly from Dharani)
Gravity defying stunt scenes including the ridiculous intro race scene (though the first fight in Malaysia is top notch)

Movie should get a good run in the B and C centres and for general audience should be ok for a one time watch and a good treat for Vijay fans. My personal verdict – can watch once, dont expect logic.
