And the Oscar goes to...

This is it! I just saw the most Oscar-deserving movie today, a movie, that will be an obvious choice of the year. All because of one man who shoulders the film on his slender shoulders.. yes.. the man who has set pulses (not Daal) racing, the man who is a screen god, a man who is not a man.. BUT a superman! (yes yes literal translation of Aap purush nahi from "Andaaz Apna Apna". Yeah so we are talking about THE MAN.. The one and only Ilaiya Thalapati, Dr. Vijay! His latest endeavor that goes by  the name of  "Vettaikaran" meaning Hunter for those who don't know.  Don't even think about giving the movie a miss. I'm gonna tell you exactly why.. To begin with, Dr.Vijay has been cast as a totally believable 3timesfailed12thclassjustenteredcollege dude. And is he a dude or what! Its easy to see why our heroine falls for him. His perfect bod, mesmerizing eyes, and easy charm are hard to resist. The storyline of the movie is really original and different and unheard of with twists and turns that will leave you nail-less by the end of the movie. Seriously, have you ever heard of a story where the police/politicians are corrupt, the hero is wronged many a number of times, where the hero's best friend gets killed by the villain. No right? See I told you it was perfectly original. In this movie, one can also see the art of Telekinesis perfected by Dr.Vijay. they don't call him doctor for no reason buddy. He can move objects without even touching them. See it to believe it.
And for a slight looking man he sure has a lot of physical strength to be flinging the goons around like Frisbee.
Oh I just can't stop raving about him. I had my Wow moment in the movie when when somebody sprays a can of insect killer that goes by the name "TIT" into one of the nice guy's eyes. Tit.. err. It makes him blind.. I think that had a hidden feminist message behind it.. deep deep message that could mean if Tit went into your eyes it could make a man blind. So keep tit away from your eyes. You leching men of the world, did you catch the subtle subtext or not! Hah, that said, I think I have made my case crystal clear as to why this movie SHOULD go the Oscars. I mean, it is waaaay believable and better that Slumdog Millionaire no? Hollywood! Make way .. The Vettaikaran is coming  to hunt you!

Thala rocks \m/

After all that hot air I pumped in my last post, this one's for the anonymous commenter who insists I write something about the year ahead. So I'm gonna be listing out 10 things I intend to do this year, whether they intend to happen to me or not is a different story altogether ;) and some might even not be realistic, now let's not get into that either. Here goes..

UPDATE ON MY 2010 Wishlist on 15th Dec 2011
  1. Buy a car. I can drive OK. I have a license to prove it. Though  the picture in the license bears no resemblance to the license holder - DONE
  2. Organize the Haj trip for my parents. This I've been wanting to do ever since I started working but the M word is the ONLY hiccup.
  3. Get married. Yep.. you read that right. I'm getting dreams where I'm 70 and alone with a house full of cats :D - GETTING MARRIED IN APRIL
  4. Go on a vacation to any or all of the following places - UAE, Singapore, Greece, France, Ireland. This would be one of the unrealistic list item I was talkin about earlier. - UAE - Check, Singapore: Check Greece: You're next :D
  5. Become famous/infamous. Either suits me just fine. Unrealistic Item #2
  6. Be a hotshot copywriter and write lines that win me all the awards that there are to win.
  7. Start working on the book I've been wanting to write, which will be force fed to friends, family and foes. (Alliteration Alert!)
  8. At least be nice to people who are nice to me. People who are not nice to me will be sent to the purgatory ;)
  9. Grow my hair to the original length it was when I was in class 8. It reached till my lower back. Not as easy as it sounds. Really. - HALFWAY THROUGH
  10. Get meself a kitten. If the dream mentioned it Item # 3 has to come true, might as well start now. - ALMOST TOOK ONE HOME :-|
There! I've spit it all out. So much to be done and not necessarily in the given order. Wish me luck!!!
