Day 206: Malayalam Movie Dialogue : Manichithrathazu "Madampalliyale thakkol edukkan"

This is a laugh riot. I have watched or attempted to watch the tamil-hindi-kannada versions of Manichithrathazhu. And I should be honest (not biased) it is nowhere near this original. By the way, I love Vidya Balan, Jyothika, and Soundarya as actors. So, that is not the bias. This movie is so special that I must have watched this over a 100 times so far. Innocent is one of my most favorite actor (I love most character artists from Malayalam film industry) and I guess this dialogue delivery just makes you to laugh even as you think about the scenes.

What is written in this image reads as follows: 'Madamballiyile thaakoledukkan nee endhinaaa Daasappa kinattilirangane?". I am laughing hard even as I write this.  All this sentence means is "To take the key from Madampalli, why are you getting down to the well, Dasappa?". That is all. Simple and straight forward statement but this is one of the best from Innocent uncle's comedy. So, here is the clip from that movie.

Watch it and laugh out loud (if you understand malayalam). Source: YouTube.
Disclaimer: A horrible print to watch. But this is the best one that I found for a 2 min clip.

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 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 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 :)
