Chennai news 9 April

Mandela Telugu Movie

We just completed our elections in Tamilnadu on Tuesday together with Kerala and Pondicherry. The elections was held over one day and was largely peaceful as can be expected in our state. However, results will only be out on May 5th as they do not want these results to affect the elections in the other states. So, we will get all kind of conspiracy theories till then. West Bengal for example has their elections spread over 8 phases and 8 different days and is still in the progress.  The Feral Nomad ‘If you are in doubt, just be still, and rest will be taken cared of’. No, this is not a popular saying with a deep meaning. This is what I say to my European friends before we cross a road here in Sri Lanka. After a few instances of …

WATCH: The Tamil protest song ‘Enjoy Enjaami’ that’s lighting the world up with 100m views

'ENJOY ENJAAMI' BY DHEE FT. ARIVU

‘Enjoy Enjaami’ tells the story of exploited tea plantation labour and was an immediate hit, with cross-cultural appeal in India and the diaspora. The hit, written by Arivu with the stunning Tamil vocals of Dhee, is as much a serious protest piece as it is about killer dance beats. The song is clear about the link of the people with the land, and how they built so much infrastructure in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Mauritius (and South Africa) and then we’re sent back to the cities without benefitting from any of the land they worked on. The video and music have their fair share of African influences, but the rap is not out of place. Rap was always the musical voice of the oppressed, poor and disenfranchised. “If rap is about story-telling, my grandmother is the world’s best story-teller,” says …

South Indian movie review – Lens and C/O Kadhal

Lens - movie

I saw a brilliant movie called Lens on Netflix. It is a dark mystery drama, a genre I don’t really like but once I started watching I could not stop. What happens when a man who is hooked on chatting with women on the net is trapped into a situation to watch a man threaten to commit suicide. What is the reason unfolds as the movie runs. The movie was made in 2015 so the software is a bit dated but this does not lessen the impact of the script. The movie can be seen in predominantly English with some Tamil and Malayalam but full English subtitles. The movie is written and directed by Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan who also stars in it. The other main character is Anandsamy. The movie has done very well in the International film circuit. Follow Chennai …

Aelay movie chennai

Aelay is a delightful Tamil movie set in a village and it gives you an understanding of the beautiful life there. The movie starts with an embittered son Parthi (Manikandan) coming to the village for his father’s funeral. This will give you a good idea of a village funeral and maybe you can look for similarities in our funerals as our ancestors also came from villages. However there is a flashback of the father Muthukutty (Samuthirakani) who is a shameless drunk and hustler who always embarrasses his children. There is also a delightful romance between Parthi and Naachiya (Madhumathi Padmanabhan who looks like a real village beauty), the daughter of a rich landlord in the village. The village itself takes on a life of its own. There are many twists and turns, many that you will not be able to …
