Thirakkatha - The movie!

A lot of times, I tend to live in the wonderful life of past. At times I worry about what future is holding for me, how am I going to survive if this goes wrong and that goes wrong etc etc. And when I am fed up of living in the past and worrying about the future, I try to find my Neverland. I try to forget everything and be part of a dreamland. I watch movies, an unbelievably high number of them!

Netflix and Youtube are like bread and butter for me, or should I say "Kanji and Payaru" or "Dal and Roti"! :-)

Today, as soon as I came back from office I changed clothes and started watching the movie "The Butterfly Effect". It is a movie based on Chaos Theory which states that even a small movement of a butterfly wing can trigger a cyclone in another part of the world! It was a pretty complex script and I was in awe of that script!

By the time I finished the movie, both my roommates were hungry enough and we went out for dinner. We went to a Pancake House and had lots of coffee and sugar. So my plans of hitting bed early went for a toss.

I came back and started browsing and the name of movie "Thirakkatha" caught my eye. So, as usual I opened Youtube and started searching for Thirakkatha movie and to my utmost delight, I could find a very good copy of that movie in Youtube. I decided to ignore the moral problems about violating the copyrights of the movie for a moment as I wanted to watch this movie from the time I heard about Ranjith directing such a movie.

I started watching the movie and found it a bit slow at the beginning and found the narration a bit too complex. Even some of the scenes seemed to be amateurish.

But the second half of the movie was outstanding. Ranjith has come up with a gem of a storyline, even though some of the dialogues were a bit dramatic for my taste. But, finally he was able to conquer my feelings and my heart became heavy towards the end of it.

As soon as the movie finished at around 12:15 AM, I went to the kitchen, had a glass of water. I wanted to get my emotions out somehow and I started writing this blog!

A must watch, if you are a movie fan!

Dont know about Thirakkatha. Red Chillies kandu. Kaththi padam. But I liked the style. Mohanlal is always superb.

Technical flaws aside, I loved the movie. Did you watch Thalappavu? I think these two were the best movies of the year, hands down. ഈ ഫാന്‍സ്‌ അസോസിയേഷന്‍കാര്‍ക്ക് വേറെ പണിയൊന്നും ഇല്ലേ?
