    Look lik Mahinder is selling Indian movies in the web.

    Good job, any way.

    I am thinking why that boy was rude?. It relates to me.

    Maninder,

    I also watch classical movies that contain classical music and dance. Tamil movies and their actors are given undue importance as can be seen from the political offices they hold and false sense of illutionary dream of married life. Young people are tempted to fall in love and prompted to take unthoughtful acts without knowing the consequences. The world is changing at a rate but the Tamil cinema world has not changed much. Similar stories were filmed even many decades back. The mivies can entertain people but must also be thought provoking and a guidance for social reforms.

    Nirupam,

    I am not a big fan of Tamil movies. I agree with your observations about Tamil movies in general. But there are a lot of exceptions. This movie is one of them.

    I am a big fan of K. Balachander, the director of this movie, who has got a gift of telling an immature story in a most matured way. I loved the opening sequence of this movie. It has done away the normal treatment of tamil movies portraying the protoginsts larger than life, that you talk about.

    Anud,

    Hi! It is not wrong of you to make that accusation. But I don`t have to sell Indian movies in SL. They are already oversold here.

    I have come across some teenagers who are fluent in hindi and tamil by just watching these movies. That is very interesting!

    Yeah... yeah.. very interesting!

    You create conditions now so that after a decade or two, the Indians can say `we are deeply concerned about HINDI SPEAKING Sri Lankans`... and start to flex some muscles.

    Patriotic Sri Lankans... watch out for the divisions to be created among us...

    This parasite does not need a microscope to be identified.

    This flim is FAR from classic. The ending was so rubbish, it was as if the director said `lets just put a twist at the end for the sake of it`.

    Vinivida,

    If you want to identify parasite, go stand in front of a mirror. You will see a fully matured one!

    Citizen of a country, which has an institutionalized donor association is talking about parasites!

    Ridiculousness has no boundary with people like you. I am glad you belong to a very tiny minority in SL.
