Day 165: North Face: Never Stop Exploring

North Face's ad has been on TV for a while this past couple of weeks. Yes, we are almost past Fall and getting closer to winter which means, North Face is the brand we need to remember. On a side note, I remember even seeing the brand placement in most Bollywood movies !

The recent North Face ad is one heck of an ad. Great music, quick editing, relevant images, adrenalin-rush adventures, and in short an awesome ad. An ad's first and foremost duty is to grab attention. That itself will let the consumer notice and pay attention to the message. Then, is some catchy mix to show what the product stands for. It starts with a little girl in a museum and then she imagines all these various adventurous activities one can do and finally imagines herself doing rock climbing! North Face was able to nail that in this ad- at least for me. It definitely does justice to the tag-line- Never Stop Exploring. It shows us how to push our physical limits and explore more. There is surely more to life.

Probably, the music was one big attraction for why I stopped to notice the ad. Yet to figure out the music used in the ad. Not sure if it was from some popular album or made originally for the ad. My shazam wasn't on and I couldn't figure it out. Winter break is also the time when people decide to take vacations. This surely inspired me to think of one!

Watch it here and share your thoughts.

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 207: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Nadodikkattu "Ethra manoharamaya"

Dasan and Vijayan team is one of the most popular character pair in Malayalam movie fraternity. Every Malayalee will remember the dialogues from these movies. The pair of Lal-Sreenivasan as Dasan - Vijayan just brought (and still bring) smiles and simple joy among movie goers. Between Sathyan Anthikkad and Priyadarshan, there were three movies directed using the same team for the lead pair. With the script written by Sreenivasan himself, these movies have become immortal in the history of Malayalam cinema.
Among the set of 3 movies done using the combination, the first one was 'Nadodikkattu'. The picture that depicts the dialogue is from that movie. The second and third were 'Pattanapravesham' and 'Akkare Akkare Akkare'. Even though each movie was good this one is something very special. The dialogues are so popular that I don't think any of us would 'not' use them in everyday life. 
This one given below is by Vijayan (played by Sreenivasan) that s…

Day 210: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Diamond Necklace "Arunetta"

Time for a recent movie context. This is one of my new favorite actor- Anushree. This scene is from a movie called Diamond Necklace. It is not a comedy movie but this specific actor's character does bring in innocence and sweetness that will make you smile. Why do I like her? Well, she has a beautiful knack to enact serious, comedy, strong roles with ease. She came into movies through a reality show and trust me she is a real find. This is her first one and she plays a small role as the protagonist's innocent wife. The innocence of 'Rajashree' just won so many hearts. 
The dialogue reads "Ende Arunettane manasilkkan ini vere aara ullathu" means "Now, who else is there to understand my Arun":) For those who understand the context you can smile, the rest, please go and watch this one :)
