Day 211: Malayalam Movie Dialogue: Meleparambile Aanveedu "Velakkariya irundhalum"

How can I not have the great (read great great) Jagathy Sreekumar's at least one dialogue when I talk about Malayalam movie dialogues? He is an icon that no one can ever replace. Yes, the other actor who was so wonderful was Nagesh. But I think Jagathy can beat all of them with ease. He can outshine every other actor on screen. Jagathy's unique touch to every role and his antics (only he can- remember, Thalavattam?) can be ONLY played by him. He must have acted in over 1000 movies and I hope he comes back to movies very soon (He met with an accident a couple of years ago and he hasn't recovered yet). Malayalam industry that was blessed with some amazing character artists. 

This is from the movie "Meleparambile Aanveedu" and I think the role of Jagathy as the brother of the hero (Jayaram) is just brilliant and a laugh riot. This is a scene where he is trying to learn tamil to woo the 'servant maid' (Shobana). The dialogue reads as " Velakkariya irundhalum nee en mohavalli" means "Even if you are a servant maid, you are my sweetheart" 

The movie was a super hit and one of the brilliant movies in Malayalam industry. I am still researching to find out if this has been inspired by any foreign movie and haven't found any yet. So, hoping (really) that this is an original masterpiece. The attempts to remake it in Tamil (Neiyandi) was futile and did not even reach anywhere close to this brilliant one. Watch it if you haven't. You will not regret it.

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M

Day 306: Most beautiful things in this world

"What are the most beautiful things in this world?", asked a little child.
"Ah! well, the list is long, really very long." , said I,  Do you have the patience to listen and hold on? "Yes, I do", said she.  I smiled,  "I will first tell you all that I have been told,  and then will narrate all that I uphold."

Listen, oh, little girl,  I was told it was in places to go by a long way,  Like the light blue shores in the Caribbean isles,  and the beautiful Icelandic summer nights.  It was also in the streets of Tokyo,  and the serene charm of Canadian winter snow.  Some said it was the street food in Bangkok,  and yet others claimed that it was the chaat masalas of India.  The haute couture in Milan fashion show,  or for a few, the royal palaces of big Europe.  I was confused just like you, for,
all these are places afar very distant from my present home .
But what if I wanted to enjoy a few beautiful things,
should I go this far or are they just wi…
