Unnai Pol Oruvan - Below expectation

Wanted to see Unnai Pol Oruvan to compare it with "A Wednesday" but the theatres were full as usual in Chennai on a Saturday evening.Cant people find better entertainment spot than a theatre? went to the beach with friends spent a couple of hours and one of them suggested for the Drive-in in the ECR.I managed to get a seat on the second row and saw the movie while getting wet in the rain. The movie failed to impress as it couldn't match the excellence of characters set up in the hindi version. A person who could speak Tamil with better pronunciation could have taken the role of Mohanlal thanks to his dialogues which were incomprehensible. There was humour at unnecessary places to obstruct the flow of a serious, gripping movie. Kamal couldnt fit into a "common man" role neither Lakshmi's expressions were appropriate.

The last scene could have been more implicit than the one shown. Could manage to get a 2/10.

Everything you desire - totally disappointing

I can't avoid being a harsh critic at "Harsh" cos his book fails to invoke any enthusiasm from the readers.Reading through the book, gave a feeling that it would never end. I should have caught the lack of author's creativity from the naming of the book itself which is as bland as the author and the contents of the novel. The brand IIM duped me into buying this book. It was yet another college life and there wasn't anything novel for the readers with the exception of management jargons.The characters failed to stay in the mind and disappeared before they could come out as a strong personality. Some of the sentences were appearing repeatedly and the use of cliches added to the disgust. The ending too dint create an impact for readers to remember. However it has definitely aroused a negative impact, for the critics to mock about. I start wondering if the author is really a product of IIM.
