BAAHUBALI - Live The Epic !!

Would like to start the review with a strong recommendation of going piracy-free at-least for this kind of “Once –in-a-lifetime” experience. This movie servers better with a much bigger and better screen with terrific audio; hence please watch the movie in theatres to encourage such an emphatic work.

“ Baahubali – The Beginning “ as the name suggests, this is a beginning to such epic and top notch story telling without having to hesitate even a bit regardless of its budget and the way the movie is going to do in the market. This movie paves way for many more such experimental story telling trilogy where people get to explore the real cinema. In a way, this movie is the beginning to many such path breaking moves that is going to happen in the film industry across India.


The movie opens up to a terrific title card all creative and mesmerising that sets the mood for the rest of the movie. The title card and the background score is so attractive that you want to sit in a position from which you cannot afford to miss even a scene in the movie gathering all attention on its own.

The movie opens up to an exotic location besides an artificially created waterfall that captivates your heart in no time. The waterfall is made in such a way that it takes time for you to prove it’s a made up one. The villagers of the near locality pick an abandoned baby and a lady amongst the group adopts him who in a period of time grows to become “Shivudu”. He is much interested in knowing what exactly is being held back at the top of the falls and starts climbing it up right from a very small age. After numerous attempts and after reaching the top, he discovers the love of his life, who he join hands with to venture out on a kingdom for a reason. Entering the kingdom, how he makes his mark and how he discovers as to who he is, clads the story line of this long awaited epic.

The first half fittingly shows snippets of everybody and a brief introduction about them as to engulf the audience with the much needed movie feel. Although few unrealistic stunts and misplaced songs at few portions make the audience chirpy, it grips them with an arrogantly awesome interval block that it makes everybody feel that the first half was not a dragging one.

The director is quite intelligent enough to compensate this lag with the second half and he has come with some extraordinary action flicks towards the end. The second half is just all action packed which thoroughly is enjoyable frame by frame. The stunt sequences in the second half deserves thorough appreciation for the kind of efforts they had taken. The war sequences towards the tail end of the movie have been choreographed extremely well that steals your heart with no doubt. The second half is so gripping and it makes you come towards the edge of your seat in the end to really know how this war ends and what happens next.


PRABHAS: Kingly is the word that best describes his screen presence in the movie. Prabhas looks emphatic and apt to play a lead in such a historic flick and he has done it so flawlessly. His body language, his efforts and his screen presence deserves much appreciation and he has set a benchmark for a king role. The kind of homework and the efforts that he has underwent for this movie is fruitfully visible on the screen without a strain. Could not compare anybody else in his place, who really could have driven the movie like he did, which is a big victory for him. PRABHAS nailed it with his character and leaves in you a mark of a significantly great actor. He is an asset to the film industry.

RANA DAGUBBATI: The man looks all beefed up and beastly filling the shoes of a king role in the movie. Rana looks incredibly hot and the efforts that he has put in are much visible. Although he has been portrayed a lot in a greyish shade, he will steal the hearts of the audience with his command over the role. The emotions and the body language that he portrays are much appreciable and will count up to the over-all movie performance. He has a major role to do in the sequel of the movie and this guy will go a long distance in the industry.

SATHYARAJ: This old-young man has a significant role to play in the movie. At this age, the kind of stunt sequence he does and the kind of efforts that he has put in are truly appreciable. Dedicated is the word that I would like to describe this guy as. He plays his spot to perfection and makes sure to convince the audience that nobody else could have done this role such elegantly. The kind of stunts he performed and the action sequences that he got involved in are truly commendable to be performed at this age. He is an asset to the Indian cinema.

RAMYA KRISHAN: Easily her second best role till date only after “Padaiyappa”. Her body language, her tone and her command over her acting skills are truly mesmerising. Her screen presence is much felt in a lot of scenes and she proves a vital asset in the movie with every dialogue firing its way out. Her acting skill knows no bounds and this piece is none the less. She just nailed it with absolute ease. Her character was easily one of my favourite characters in the movie.

ANUSHKA, TAMANNAH and NASSER: Although Anushka did not have much to play in the part of the movie; she did more than what she could. Her get up was nicely done and her body language did all the communication with the audience. We could expect more of Anushka in the sequel and it’s going to be a blast. Tamannah plays a tough role where she does a lot of stunt oriented sequences and her efforts are appreciable. She captivates everybody’s hearts with flawless and intriguing beauty. Her body language and dialogue delivery could have been much better to suit the innate feel of the movie. Nasser does a great job of an antagonist who skilfully carries the character with his abilities. His experience is mammoth and it comes very hand in such situations where the character oriented acting is much needed. Nasser does his role to perfection.

 TECHNICIANS: Last but not the least, often called the Back bone of any project. This movie is much to do with technicians rather artist themselves. The graphics and the visual effects that put-forth were commendable and this is the first time I am seeing something like this in an Indian movie. The efforts that they had undertaken is clearly visible on screen with people appreciating it heart fully. Immense is the word that best describes the CG works and also thanks for having done something like this.
Stunt choreography needs a special mention here with Peter Hein ruling the roost in this department. The Stunt sequences were top notch and especially those war sequences were mind-fuck. Audience were amused the way it has been shot and had a satisfaction of fairly watching something that’s on par with the Hollywood. The efforts that this department took are the real success and the movie rides high on this department.

VERDICT:  Like everything is fair in Love and War; the same holds good for War movies too. This movie has all ingredients of taking the Indian Cinema at a global arena.
M-A-S-T-E-R-C-L-A-S-S !!

 “I know you wouldn’t even remember the occasion! You are that ridiculously worse with dates.” Mary sounded pretty confident over the phone. 

“Really? Alright darling, I am getting home in a while; get ready to be all mine losing the bet” uttered Chris in a husky voice trying to sound romantic over the phone.

“Baby the moment I prove you wrong about the statement you told me, brace yourself for the night of the life” whispered Chris holding Mary’s face in his palm.

“Alright baby, but I bet you could never get there”, Mary told trying to put his confidence down.

“Wear the best for the night and get ready to be soaked in all love and lust” said Chris kissing her hands soft and gentle.

Chris rushed out of the house without even changing his sweaty shirt and trouser that he wore for the day’s work. He took his car out with at most speed and started heading somewhere. Mary saw Chris very happy, convincing and free though she sounded confident that Chris will never win the bet.

Mary striped herself off and started polishing her nails after a warm refreshing shower. She wore on herself a red slip and a sexy short before she fell on the bed imagining how ecstatic the night would go on while biting her lustrous red sexy lips.

While she kept looking out for Chris through the window, Chris drove his car really faster down his lane to park it as soon as possible and meet his wife Mary who kept waiting for him. Chris rushed through the main door and kept running real hard onto the stairs to reach the bedroom where he found his wife lying on the bed all sexy and hot waiting to be all his. 

“Welcome home sweetheart, let me hug you with me so tight that you won’t have the feeling of failing to remember the occasion” said Mary in a winning tone. Trying to comfort him, she kissed his forehead lustily.

Chris pulled her so close to him, holding her face in his palms pulled a gift out of his baggage uttering “Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!” on top of his voice. Mary took few seconds to unwrap the gift and discovered that it was a pink colored clutch from Gucci. Chris said, “This will really go well on your favorite pink trouser, sweetheart. Mary although was not attracted with the gift smiled at Chris and told “Thank you my love, it was lovely. Your choice is just stupendous”. Mary was happy that Chris remembered it was her birthday but deep inside her heart she always had a feel that he would have had presented her something else which would really had captivated her.

Chris could clearly read her mind. After few minutes of silence, Chris laughed really hard out as he took a small box from his pocket to give it to Mary. He kissed her lips so passionate, and placed the box on her palms; whispered in her ears, “Happy Birthday, My Love”.  It was a pleasant shock for Mary this time. She opened the parcel quickly to discover that the gift inside the box was a RED Emerald and diamond antique neck piece. 

Her lips opened up to a wide smile when she took a good look at the necklace and hugged him so tight to her. She kept whispering, “Thank you baby, and Thank you. This is the best gift I ever have had received ever yet” for which Chris added up saying, “Keep waiting for more sweetheart”. Chris danced her gently to the bed holding her hip on one hand and her hand on the other. He made her comfortable on the bed and sat beside her to hug her with him and get lost in her. She sensed his blue shirt completely wet while droplets of sweat hit her shoulder running from his nose tip. She pushed him away playfully saying, “Go shower”. 

He lifted her and threw her into the bathtub and told, “I cannot bath alone”. She sat on the edge of bathtub all wet looking sensually hot. She was drenched and all her features were completely visible through her light sex dress that set all lust for Chris sky high. 

“Now that you have lost the bet, you better be ready to be all mine, baby” told Chris huskily sexy.

She pulled him close to her and kissed his lips so hard in an effort to make her lip stick mark paste on his and told “Will this do for the night, baby?”.

Chris laughed very loud out as he grabbed her hip and kissed her back so passionately whispering “The night is all mine, baby”.

She kept losing her clothes one after the other for she lost the bet tonight. He pushed her inside the bathtub while he tried covering her whole body with his. He held his finger on her forehead and started traversing it along all part of her body. Starting with forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, and throat he kept gliding his finger until she gave up on him. He started kissing those lips that were as gentle as a rose petal, sucking it gently to show her how much he loved her. 

She let him discover her completely, where love and lust crossed over limits. She gave up defending her body from him and let him do whatever he felt like. She decided to be all his tonight and did not even make an attempt to stop him from doing anything. He got lost in her fragrance that emancipated only love and lust. Her body smelled so good that he never wanted to take his nose off it. He fondled her so much that she lost control of her and couldn’t wait for him to invade her. He visited each and every of her part in an anticipation to discover something new in her. 

At one moment their senses fired up, and they were completely ready to get one. They were waiting for one such moment were they could hide in themselves. He held her almost everywhere and they made zealous love. They made love like there is no tomorrow and it’s going to be over in an hour. They laughed, moaned, cried, whispered and sweat while they made love like never before. 

They cannot wait to fall into each other’s arms after having done such a thing. They kissed passionately and slept in each other’s arms after getting high on life

Chennai Super Kings is my Valentine

                                                                                In India, it is only Cricket after Food, Clothing and Shelter which is almost going on to become one of the basic amenities for living in this country. Although, the game has been played in very many different formats, one quirky catchy format of the game is the Twenty – Twenty format where the entire competition is got done in a total span of forty overs. This Indian Premier League is an absolute cob-web that flawlessly spins the whole of people’s interest towards it. This is a nicely scripted, formulated, regulated and competitive set-up where different teams representing different regions of India contest to clinch that glamorous trophy from the board. Chennai being a part of it, I started supporting it right from the beginning of the league and they went on to become a brand, a major brand with so many things revolving around them.

                                                                                Chennai Super Kings is the franchise cricket team based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu that plays in the Indian Premier League (IPL) founded in 2008, with Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the captain of the side and Stephen Fleming as the coach. India Cements acquired the rights to the franchise for ten years while N.Srinivasan, vice-chairman and managing director of India Cements became the De facto owner of the club. Players were auctioned out in the league and team should bid for their part of the players for certain tenure and that kept the whole thing going. While the line-up kept changing for years, the only thing that did not change is the brand value and the fame for the club. CSK went on to become the most successful team in the league having won two titles in quick succession.

                                                                                With all these years of undaunted and super imposing success I decided to take you all through the team that is responsible for all name and fame. Like the soldiers along the borders, eleven warriors fighting wars to keep the team name up flying high is not an easy task. These players brought their specialities together, talent together and above all friendship together to take CSK off to greater heights. CSK is a balanced mix of super talented international players and hyper active local boys who kept the winning streaks up high in the air. 

                                                                                A team without a good captain is like a horse left without trained, for its skill and character going void. CSK is one such team to have been blessed with one of the finest captains of all times. DHONI – “Dynamic Hero Of Nation India” is the hero of this squad who has tormented to take CSK off to such heights leading from the front. This man who leads the nation by example has the tactics of getting great work from ordinary people done and every time he does that, CSK meets success without a doubt. He knows the pulse of the team and fits in the captain’s role apt and tailor made. He has played some mind blowing knocks for the team guiding the team home with some of comprehensive victories that is all out of thinking range. The way he finishes things off in style is an absolute beauty and a delight to watch. The command over the players he has and the mutual respect amongst remains a standing monument to prove CSK is one difficult team to beat by any margins. Dhoni is a kind of person who doesn’t lose the cool more often on the field and that is one important characteristic of a leader to be able to emerge all victorious. In nutshell, I could not imagine anybody else in the driver seat other than Dhoni who could constantly steer CSK home every time with a win. It is not just cricket that made him a super human but there are certain traits which carried him as a person all the way.



                                                                                The CSK batting line up starts with this Caribbean super star who constantly helps the team get off to a flyer always consuming lesser number of balls for settling down on the field. He is such a talented cricketer who swings the willow so powerfully that every time he does that, he gets a maximum. He is one inevitable reason as to why CSK is being regarded as a team with one of the most devastating opening pair. Not only with the bat, but also with the field has Smith hit gold, he drops very few and his hands are as safe as a house. Black smith, gold smith and he is our own SUPER SMITH.

                                                                                This formidable cricketer is an absolute asset to the team. Every time he comes out to bat, he makes sure CSK is all comfortably settled for going on to a big target. He bombards the opposition with his enormous talent and skill. The way he destroys the bowlers all across the ground is an absolute visual delight and he steadies the CSK batting with smith along-side. He is generally called the Super man at field and doesn’t let any ball go past him that easily. With the bat and field, Baz is an absolute asset for the team and one of all-time favourites in the side. Mccullum is the BOSS

                                                                                Suresh Kumar Raina, is somebody who has been with the team for a long time now. He has made the most number of appearances in IPL for CSK and is the vice-captain of the side. Humongous talented raina is the backbone of the CSK middle order and he takes CSK off from where the openers left without having to take a lot of time. The shot selection, the drives and placements are an absolute delight watching and he is somebody who gives his heart and soul on the field. Although not a regular bowler, he surprises the batsmen with his line and length varying the pace much to the need. He takes some crucial wickets and contains the run leaking from all sides. He will be the first person to run up to people and cheer them for all the good work they did. Raina keeps the team lively and positive. Such a positive energy in the side and he is to be called the RAJINI RAINA.

                                                                                Faf, is somebody who comes after raina to take the CSK innings forward. He is one perfect example of the saying, “Slow and steady wins the race “. He starts off slow and steady to finish his scoreboard on a high. He makes a solid 30-40 runs on the board every time he comes out to bat and that emerges a support that CSK much needs. Running short of words to explain his fielding abilities, for he never takes things for granted on the field. He is such a valuable player in the side often being called the FANTASTIC FAF.

                                                                                                This West Indian star is the most celebrated in the team. Fun-loving, jovial, dedicated and ambitious cricketer who never tends to put CSK down at any cost. He marks the end of the middle order in the team and makes sure CSK finishes off at a greater altitude for a comprehensive victory. He bats to perfection and with a care to settle CSK off to a great score. Not only with his bat does he magic, but also with the fielding and bowling. He is one of the most thinking bowlers in the side who doesn’t give away many runs contributing a lot to the team victory. As his name suggests, he is BRAVO!!

                                                                                                The local boy from Chennai who secured an indomitable place for himself in the side is a superb spinner who spins CSK all the way to the victory. He is often called the thinking bowler who has vast talents under his belts for his name. Batsmen go berserk for his carom ball and that is one tactics that never fails. He is one player who could also bat in times of adversities who could pull things off from any low. He is one most favourite player in the side who plays his heart off for the team. He is one reliable spinner who doesn’t give many runs giving CSK the much needed wicket break every time without fail.  ashWIN as his name suggests.

                                                                                                SIR and that is how he is fondly called by all his fellow mates. Jadeja is a handy all-rounder who plays his part to perfection every time and never failing to amuse us with the ball. The short arm throw and accuracy with which he delivers the ball is simply outstanding. Fielding is a cake-walk for him, never letting the ball goes past him giving the opponents no runs that easily. He has been regarded as one of the most stylish and super dedicated fielder on the side. Jadeja is a stylish batsman and an awesome bowler without who CSK would lack a worthy all-rounder. Dhoni bangs on Jadeja every time he needs a wicket and he flawlessly impresses his captain. SIR Jadeja!!

                                                                                                Mohit is a prolific bowler who does not give man runs away and sets the team to a great start as with defending a total. The line and length with which he bowls is simply outstanding. He keeps the ball to the stump that any time the batsman misses would cost a wicket. He is such a dignified and exuberant fielder who gives his heart and soul on the field. He is somebody who went on to play for the nation after playing this team.
Mo-HIT Sharma as his name suggests!!

                                                                                                Nehra was an international bowler who couldn’t reach the heights he deserved. He was widely criticized for his bad line and length that never let him go the distance he wanted in the game of cricket. CSK bid Nehra for an amount and took him recently in and he is already a rock-star in the team. Dhoni tried to take the best out of this guy and he succeeded flawlessly in his attempt. Nehra is the leading wicket taker this season and leads the flock of CSK bowlers from the front. It was only under the able captainship of Dhoni that Nehra is able to perform extremely well in the team and the captain is pretty much impressed with his performance. The line, length and the pace is something he is getting right every time this season and has taken CSK off to greater extent. He has been an instrumental tool while chasing bigger targets and handling pressure situations. He is a new joiner who plays like a true CSK who has been playing for years now. NehROCKS for CSK

This is a kind of team that you never want to hate unless and until you love the game of cricket.
Everybody in the side are champions and they play like one

3 times Finalists
2 times Semi-Finalists
2 times Champions
1 Team CSK

Chennai Super Kings ku Whistle Podu !!
