Best and Worst of 2010..


Best and worst of 2010.. - This post is just my views on what I experienced last year. Anybody has difference in opinions, please do comment (Abuse words accepted. But no obscenity please :) ..). Those who agree too can comment. One more thing - This means that I read or saw or experienced this movie or book or joke in 2010 and they need not be published or released on 2010. First as usual let's start with worst of 2010. 

Worst novel..  - The worst novel I read in 2010 is Sydney Sheldon's "Are you afraid of the dark?". I suppose it was a bestseller at it's times. But when I read it now, I felt exhausted and bored. It was a normal Sheldon mystery with a woman.. Okay not alone, along with another woman fights against their stalkers and win. The base reason behind the stalking and way chapters are handled gave me yawning. May be because it was stereotypic, so that I may not liked it. But am sorry to say, Sydney is the author of the worst book I read in 2010.

Worst Answer.. - Reporter: "Why is the onion price hiking?" 

Tamilnadu C.M: "That you have to ask Periyaar only!!!!"

Reporter: :!#%@$@^&..

Worst Screenplay: The worst screenplay award goes to my favourite actor Kamal Haasan for "Manmadhan Ambu". Can there be this much confusion in continuing a story and on deciding which way to travel. When I finished seeing the first half of the movie, felt very happy that am going to have a treat in second half. Kamal proved it wrong and confused himself and all audience. sari sari Aanaikum adi sarukkum. Better luck next time Kamal Sir..

Worst Movie.. - The movie I feel like wasted 120 bucks is "The Expendables". I literally hated that movie. Gave me a head ache. Went along with all my room mates and none liked it. That's the beauty of the movie. Generally when I am not interested in a movie, I make fun of the movie and enjoy myself in theatre. This is the movie proved it false and made me really sick. Not even worth to see if translated and telecasted in Sun TV or K TV or Kalaignar TV or whatever TV. 

Worst Actor.. - Finally worst actor award. This goes to wanna be macho Surya sun of Sivakumar for his performance in "Singam". He was not at all suited for the role still he wanted to try. But miserably failed. I agree it's one of the hits of 2010. But Surya is declining in his curve to reach Kamal Haasan. Surya needs focus else he may also end up like Vijay (Ilaya thalapathi than). When Prakash Raj is ruling one side, Surya looks like a beginner in front of him. When he roars at Prakash I got irritated instead of enthusiasm. Surya, Please choose roles where you fit.. 

This is it for now Will post the best in next post..

Aadukalam.. - The winning horse out of the three films released on Pongal. Rated high on all magazines. I happened to see this movie last Friday night with 3 of my Telugu Room mates. Normal tamil itself is different in written and spoken. Do I need to explain the difficulty in understanding Madurai slang. The three of them got the gyst of the movie and nothing more. First of all apologies to them for taking them to this movie. I felt it will be like Ajith or Vishal talking Tirunelveli slang by adding "Elae" at the end of the normal tamil Sentence. I experienced that in "Citizen" and "Thamirabharani". Coming back to Aadukalam, which has got more clarity in language.

K.P.Karuppu (Dhanush) is involved in Rooster fight (Seval sandaya than apdi surukkama sonen) along with his Guru Paettaikkarar. They have been successful throughout and had never lost a fight. The main rival for them is the Inspector General of police of that area. He wants to defeat Paettaikkarar party however, atleast once. In one of the tournaments, K.P.Karuppu, against the will of Paettaikkaarar, fights with an injured rooster, but still manages to win. There starts the ego fight and reveals Paettaikkarar's true colour which forms the rest of the story.

Story looks simple and straight. The way the director picturised the Madurai (Enga ooru doi..) and the characterisation makes you to get involved in the movie and gives a feel you are really witnessing everything happening on the screen. Tapsee fills the screen with her charm for some scenes and comes along with the story. But nothing much of a role to prove (asusual). 

I had a feeling second half is a bit out of control at few places and could have been better if cared more. However, hats off to Vetri Maran for giving a real Madurai natured movie differing from all Gunda movies potraiting a false feeling on Madurai. Poligalai nambaatheer.. Aadukalam parungal..
