Copied or Inspired

Everything is inspired from something else. From automobile to complex design, softwares to operating systems and movies are not spared as well.

Recently there were many videos released saying that Kaththi was copied from this movie, that fight scene was from another movie, the song was copied, this was ripped & that was taken. I may agree with that partially, but I do have a question.

If the some scene's in Kaththi (that includes the teaser as well) claimed to be copied, then the same would agree if I say Velu Naicker was 'copied' from Vito Corleone and that inclusive of the hairdo up to the jawbone. The same would also agree if I were to say Jigarthanda was inspired Dirty Carnival with a tweaked second half, of course some scenes from movies like Hitchcock (Siddarth standing outside the theatre hall and counts). Also I dont know if some realise before Life of Pi, there was Duma. The difference was Duma was South Africa with journey on a land whereas Pi was travelling with a tiger on a boat. Both for the same reason.

The list goes on.

So no matter what, some way some how movies will have impacts from current happenings, from another life experience and some times stories. Its end of the day the story telling that matters. That is why, the disclaimer will always be there (though most of us dont actually read it) which says "This is a work of fiction. Events, characters and firms depicted in this movie etc etc..."

Despite all that, I am very sure some will still go on hating not only Vijai but also other movies, finding faults and failed to get entertained. To Vijai haters especially, thank you for your concerns and feedback, now I will go on being his fan and keep watching his blockbusters.

Valgha Valamudan.

Garuda Puranam

Garuda Purana is one of the great puranas of India. This scripture contains details of the various punishments given to a person after death for the sins committed in life. These include Khumbipakam (burned in oil) and Kirimibhojanam (given as prey to leeches). The scripture describes about 24 types of death. Some western scholars see this script as analogous to the judgement day of Christianity

Those who murder pious people and those who cheat divine ones will be sent here. This place is a well filled with dangerous animals, insects, birds & snakes. These creatures will endlessly torture the sinners till their sentence is over.

Those who eat food without offering to God will take the form of worms and other worms at this place will bite them

Those who flirt will be poked with spiked weapons

The drunkards will be sent here. They will be given boiling iron liquid to drink

Those rulers/kings who sentence others unjustly and those who torture the weak old people will be sent here. This place looks like a pig's face. Here the keepers of hell will break the sinner's arms and legs. Their bodies will be squeezed in between rollers like sugar cane. At such moment, the sinners will faint without realizing it.

Those who have illegal affairs will be forced to hug burning rods while being whipped.

Those who steal other's wife, property or children will be terribly beaten up by the keepers of hell. The continuous torture will make them semi-conscious, overcome by greater fear and tremendous pain.

Those who deceive their life partners by not offering them food, will be tortured here till they look like a lifeless tree. They are made blind for their sins.

Those who take away other's property by their cunning speech and those who destroy other families for their own happiness will die as pauper. In hell, those affected by him will take a cruel form then a poisonous snake to punish him. Such sinners will be held in Maha Rauravam till their sentence ends.

Those who do cruelty to birds and animals and those who eat their meat will be pushed into a pot of boiling oil. They will be in it for countless years.

Those who chase their parents away will be brought here. This is a place of fire and tremendous heat. Sinners will suffer internally and externally. They will not be given food or water. At such stage, they will be walking, standing and rolling on the floor with great pain.

Those who convert to other religions without a good reason will be brought into this forest with sharp knife like leaves. They will be beaten with sharp edge belts. Those running away from them will suffer more cuts from such leaves and stones. Moreover, they will be cut into pieces continuously till their sentence ends.

Those who burned down houses or poison others, those who do mass murders and politicians who destroy countries will be held here. They will be fed on dog meat and in return more than 700 dogs will bite them before they are freed.

top of high place or hill to be pushed down. The hard surface/ground will shatter their bodies into pieces. The hell keepers will gather the bodies together to repeat such punishment again.

Those who disregard other qualified ones or holy ones and those who boasts about themselves while insulting other capable people will brought here. They will be hanged up side down, beaten and tortured by the keepers.

Those who do human or animal sacrifices in Yagna and those who eat their meat will be brought here. Those killers will be turned to animals and those animals or others killed by them will take human forms. They will tear them apart and eat up their flesh and drink their blood.

Those who cheat the innocents who trusted them and those who commit suicide by hanging or piercing the trident into their body will be brought here. Tridents and birds with sharp beaks, will pierce them as punishment.

This place is infested by poisonous and scary five or seven headed creatures. Those who are brought here will be eaten by them.

Those who torture animals or other creatures staying in caves, valleys and webs will be sent here. They will be placed in smoky pits, fire pits and punished by poison.

Those who murmur to themselves by cursing their superiors while having their meals will be sent here. Crows and eagles will poke such sinner's eyes till their eyeball drop off.

Those who become arrogant about their wealth, those who show hatred to the poor, those who bury or protect their wealth with 'genies' guarding it and those who refuse to return the money borrowed from others will be brought here. Such sinners will be tied with ropes and their bodies will be cut into pieces.

Those who take away others' things by force will be sent to this chimney like place to be barbecued continuously.

Those who offend the 'shastraas' will be pushed into the river filled with blood, pus, flesh, fats, hairs, bones, urine and bowels. They will be bitten till they bleed by the creatures dwelling in it. The sinners will struggle helplessly unable to reach the shore.

Those who neglect their culture, those who have illicit affairs with low Status women, those who misbehave without self-discipline and those who neglect the right way of living so as to live like free birds or animals will be brought here to eat bowels and to drink blood, urine and pus.

Those who rear dogs and donkeys and use them for hunting will become targets for arrows shot by the keepers.

The keepers will whip those who sacrifice cows for the sake of pride.

Mayakam Enna - Facts Not a Review

This time I am not going to write lengthy review or long points to ponder. I am going to make this very simple and straight forward; before I could start firstly I would like to thank Selvaraghavan and Dhanush for giving us such ahead of time movie.

Facts about Mayakam Enna:
  • This movie is not about photography or camera or even lenses, so all you photographers don’t get excited
  • This movie is about courage and struggle towards achieving your dream
  • Yamini is everyone’s dream wife/girl!!
  • The movie defines the actual meaning of the line “behind every successful man there is a woman” – indeed!
  • We don’t need music or BGM as there are parts where there is total silence with no dialogue. For me that portrays how a human mind can be so defeated by surroundings
  • If you watch closely, Yamini is always serious and stern, sometimes cold too. That explains well towards the end because she is THE IRON LADY.
  • Richa is excellent for a first timer and if you would have laughed at the part where she was trying to scrub off the blood off the floor, then God save you. You just missed the whole idea of the movie and its message
  • We, guys have been in Karthick – Sundar – Yamini triangle before (trust me)
  • Yamini is a very practical person.
  • Guys should learn a lesson, when a girl needs a shoulder to cry, she ONLY needs your shoulder so don’t take advantage on the situation
  • Yamini does not talk to Karthick from the time of abortion until the end of the movie(this is a spoiler mind it)
  • You will know the BGM is out of this world when you don’t realize there is a BGM
  • This movie is not hero based, it’s about the girl who is there for a man during his up’s and down’s and a woman call WIFE
  • In everyone of us, there is karthick swaminathan
  • As a photographer, you can use the best camera (5D in this movie) and may have the best lens, but that does not make you the best photographer. It’s the eye of creativity and the way that you look at your subject.
  • When someone says you are failure, prove the person is wrong
  • Not all your friends are your friends, at times best friends can be your closest enemy
  • Alcohol solves friendship issues
  • Alcohol fu** up your love relationship

Don’t expect masala or unexpected twist in this movie, it’s a matured movie catered for matured crowd.
So there it goes, all the points that I manage to gather and realize by watching the movie. Of course comparable to 7G Rainbow Colony and Kathal Konden, this is not up to that par. Nevertheless, Mayakam Enna is such a straight from the heart and into your heart kind of movie. You must watch this in the theaters and to those who download or even pirated DVD’s; I hope you rot in hell.
