What is your pick?

” Sir..I can sell you these legs ( wooden legs ) for 50 dollars . I bought it for my mom. She rarely used it.It is in very good shape”
“No thanks..I have legs of my own for now.”
” No sir..The desert is filled with mines. You can lose yours anytime.You would have to wait 1 year to get a new leg from Red Cross.”

” And that would be Sir Issac Newton. He was also a grandmaster of the Priori”
” You, my dear was the secret that the priori was protecting”

“Ennaku therinjadellam engappa, appuram andha padiayyapa..nee po paapa, illena pesuven cheapa..”

Dialogues from three different movies that I watched yesterday..

One was a reality jolt. You worry about a sprain in the leg when there are people who have their legs blown out by mines and really scramble and fight for artificial ones. – Movie : Kandahar ( Afghanistan in the Taliban era)

One was a thriller. You get lost in the world of mystery, christianity, mary magdalene ,priori. One of those movies where subtitles would certainly help if you have not read the book. Movie: Da vinci Code

The last one….Hmmm..I am not sure if it was a comedy, thriller, mystery or HORROR. I got too scared and could not watch it after 15 minutes.The dialogues were amazing though as you can see from the sample. Being T.Rajendaran’ movie, lot of rhyming going on .
Movie: “Kadhal Azivadhilai”

For Kandahar, we rented a DVD, Davinci code – we went to the theater, Kadhal Azivadhilai – was transmitted in Sun TV. The line up obviously shows the interest. I would prefer watching a comedy or a thriller anyday but I think we all need to watch a movie like Kandahar every now and then to understand the pain that people elsewhere undergo and get a huge REALITY jolt.

    It takes lot of effort for me to pull myself to watch serious movie. But I do watch it regularly.
    I prefer to watch them by myself, since I want the impact to be not influnced by others.

    My order of preference is,
    Kandahar, Da Vinci Code and (NOT)Kadhal Azivathilai

    I liked few of TR’s lyrics other than that I have nothing positive to say about TR and Simbu(TR-2)

    Needless to say that I watched all the 3 movies as well…:)… I dont have fixed preferences among the 3. It depends on the time of the day and my mood… As brainwaves said, that TR’s movie will never be in my list…;)

    As survivor rightly put it, we do need reality jolts once in a while to get us away from mundane dimensions of life, especially, in the way we experience it…We are certainly blessed in a lot of ways…

    I also prefer to watch kandahar type of movies alone.
    My pick Da-vinci, Kandahar immediately followed by kaadhal azhivadhillai (if thats the only choice given)
    (Reality films always disturb me for a while. So, I prefer some junk comedy movies (atleast half-hour or something like that) after a serious movie. Especially, If Im going to sleep after the serious movie).

    Probably Kandahar, Da Vinci in that order. The T.Rajendar’s movie I doubt I can watch in any setting unless I am physically restrained or one of my good friends have highly recommended it.

    Yes, movies like Kandahar would definitely distract me from my preoccupation with my swollen finger caused by a miniature flying object that most probably lost its life seconds after stinging me. These movies put things in perspective and I appreciate them even if I need a towel handy.
