So I chose him and told him about this recently. He was also in search of a good life partner like me after the demise of his mother and grandmother.”

Will you go to theaters to watch a movie? Most of you would answer in the affirmative. But there is also a counter side to this. There are people who do not frequent theaters and yet manage to catch up with all the latest releases. You got it, they rely on the unfair means which include internet downloads and the most popular means, the ‘thirittu’ VCD. It is indeed a booming business in Tamil Nadu at the moment, going by the number of street side vendors who are specializing in the sales of such VCDs. Some of them even function as video libraries, taking back CDs at half rates after regular clients have watched them once. There is also replacement guarantee if the disc provided does not work. Everyone is wise enough to not complain about the picture and sound quality though. That is the only front on which the pirated VCD industry is not able to compete with the actual film industry. The sound and picture quality can never be recreated. But new and emerging technologies in the form of high definition handy cams and other sophisticated equipments will soon enable them to be reproduced exactly too. It comes to your doorstep, it comes cheap and it comes with a replacement and payback guarantee. All these three can never be provided by theater owners; ever heard of ticket rates being paid back because the movie was awfully bad? With pirated VCDs threatening day by day, cinema was in a big quandary. Now, however, pirated VCDs are not the major problem, there seems to be an even more dangerous opposition, the TV.

What does one mean by saying TV? Well, we don’t know whether it was some sort of ploy by the producers to try and reduce at least to some extent the dominance of the pirated VCD industry. But, there has definitely been an increase in the number of films being handed over to TV channels in a hurry. No one is sure whether the current channel war has accelerated budgets of each competitor to acquire the most wanted productions and products. But, the overall process of getting a film from the big screen to the small one has become considerably faster, maybe by a huge factor.Look back at this Navarathri. The last two days of the festival are the most special and all channels preserved their arsenal for these couple of days. Do you remember the films that were played out across channels on those two days? Even a person with a sharp memory and a great interest in cinema might not able to recollect effectively. But, one does remember images of Abhiyum Naanum, Subramaniapuram and Poo flashing across the screen while flipping channels. The common factor between all these films is that all of them were released in 2008, got great critics’ views and did good business at the box office. Subramaniapuram was last year’s sensation while Abhiyum Naanum and Poo were revelations. In fact, all major hits of 2008, barring Dasavatharam have already been shown on the small screen; the likes of Saroja etc.All of a sudden, TV is flooded with new movies and more importantly with advertisements claiming it to be a historical landmark (varalaaril mudhal muraiyaga) that the particular movie is being telecast on that particular channel at a particular time - which of-late is also seen to be deliberately coinciding with similar plans of another channel.It is not just mere coincidence or a one off occasion. Almost all the small movies of 2009 have already been telecast including the reasonably successful Dindigul Sarathi. The movies that are less fortunate at the ticket window find themselves on the small screen before they can even blink. This year’s Anandha Thandavam is a good example which did not have to wait for much long after its theatrical release to get to the small screen.Is it a healthy trend? The common sense answer would be no. Already, families think twice, thrice and maybe even more before planning to watch a movie in theaters, the expenses and the stress demands that kind of planning. Imagine how their minds would change if the same pattern of big screen release to TV premier is followed. The difference is just a few months or even lesser which would not rob the movie of any of its freshness or novelty. A couple of years or so back, the big festival premiers used to be blockbusters fetched from at least 2 -3 years in the past. The new style is definitely welcome news for those who prefer that couch than the theater seat. But, it might ultimately turn out to be a self inflicted wound for the film industry. Maintain, preserve and use sparingly the unique appeal that TV can never have when compared to cinema. By narrowing down the distance between TV and cinema, it is the theaters that will finally go empty.

AR Rahman plans a grand musical in Los Angeles

Oscar winning music director AR Rahman has several prestigious projects in his kitty including the ones in Hollywood. The musician’s star status has been on the rise ever since he held the Oscar Statuettes for his composition in Slumdog Millionaire earlier this year. AR Rahman is reportedly planning a mega musical show in Los Angeles prior to the release of Couples Retreat, the Hollywood film for which he is scoring the music. Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Angelina Jolie, Owen Wilson, Sean Penn, David and Victoria Beckham and a host of other film stars are expected at the event.

‘Vettaikkaran’ Vijay vs. ‘Asal’ Ajith?

If sources are to be believed one biggie would be out of the Diwali race. We expected to see tough fight between Vijay’s ‘Vettaikkaran’ and Suriya’s ‘Aadhavan’ this time, but sadly things are turning out the other way round…
And the one who might miss this race will be our ‘Vettaikkaran’. With just seventeen days more for Diwali, the film has a lot to be done said the sources. A few talkie portions and a song, for which the crew plans to go to Australia, are remaining to be shot. With so much of field works and post productions works remaining, we wonder if it is possible for ‘Vettaikkaran’ to hit the floor on the festive day.
On the other hand, looks like Vijay wants the film to be perfect in everything and it’s not important to be released in a hurry. Sources further added that Sun Pictures have also settled the issues in favour of the actor. All right, this more or less clears the air and the film’s release for Diwali is doubtful…
So if not for Diwali when is the release uh? What do you think people? Will anyone release such a puffed up project on a normal day? So the next possible festive season is Pongal.
Our question now is ‘Will ‘Vettaikkaran’ play single handed with ‘Asal’- the biggie who is already waiting for Pongal release?’
So the bottom line is that, ‘Aadhavan’ is free to do a One Man Show this Diwali, while we might see the Clash of the Titans this Pongal…

'Mappillai' on fast track

Producer Hitesh Jabak of Nemichand Productions has once again proved that his forthcoming venture 'Mappillai', starring Dhanush, is so important to him.
A few weeks back, Jabak denied media reports that he had made up his mind to drop the "prestigious project", which features the son-in-law in the shoes of the Superstar father-in-law.
In order to fully concentrate on the movie, which is a remake of a Rajinikanth blockbuster of the same title, the noted producer of Tamil cinema has sold 'Naan Avan Illai -2', his other production venture, on a 'first copy basis' to one Ranjan, a distributor.
Directed by Selva, ‘Naan Avan Illai - 2’ is a sequel of 'Naan Avan Illai'. Quite like the first part, Jeevan will be seen in many get-ups. The film has five heroines opposite Jeevan.
Coming back to 'Mappillai', sources have it that D Imman has finished composing five songs for the film, which is to be directed by Suraaj. Other pre-production works too are going on in a fast track, it is learnt.

Lakshmi Rai bitter with Kannada

“Kannada is my mother tongue. So I acted with all interest in a Kannada movie. But there are hardly any takers. This made to focus more on Tamil and Malayalam films,” says Lakshmi Rai.
The actress from Belgaum says that she is a top heroine in Kerala. “I just love Malayalam films. I am one of the top actresses in Mollywood and acting with the likes of Mammootty gives me immense pleasure.”
“When I share the screen space with Mammootty, I can learn the nuances of acting from him. I feel these days that my acting skills have improved a lot,” she says with a vivacious smile on her face.
Lakshmi Rai claims that her character in ‘Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam’ is totally different. “This is for the first time any Tamil actress is doing such a role. My character will be talked about once the movie gets released,” she says.
