wednesday film

When I was recently given a DVD of the film WEDNESDAY I had my own doubts ,used to hindi potboilers and having a low opinion on thier action thrillers i reluctantly sat down to watch what I though was one more of the kind .
I sat straight in a few minutes and till the end of the movie for it absorbed me every single minute ,it appealed to my senses and at the end I clapped for Neeraj Pandey the director ,for the sauve sophisticated actor called Nasserudin shah and Anupham Kher the brilliant actor he sparred with .
suffice to say it is all about five bombs being planted in the city ( mumbai you guessed it baby ) and the events that followed this .
Iam not stupid to reveal an iota of the plot for each and every on of you should experience the thrill that unfolds .
all i would mention is the histrionic capabilities of our actors .
Naseerudinn Shah with his flawless diction voice control that melds and minces and his stylised trained acting ,this can come out of only a veteran whatever be the role he takes !
Anupham Kher is another pillar in the movie as the police comissioner he is all restraint and full of concealed strength ( heard kamalahassan another of my favourites is doing the role with mohanlal yet another of my beloved actors is taking a tamil version of this movie )
the film progresses with no loose ends and is a tapestry of thrill keeping one on the edges ,and with a nail biting finish ( not that you have much left out to bite by the end ! )
so take my advice go for it

You can see this movie as Unnaipol Oruvan next week by Kamal Hasan in Nasirudeen shaw's role and Mohanlal as Police commissioner.

Unnaipol Oruvan

i doubt 'unnaipol oruvan' can do justice to its original version as what happend to 'kuruthipunal' remake of govind nihalani's masterpiece 'drohkaal', again naseeruddin shah in the lead...!!

I saw this film almost a year after its release. I never knew that a film by this name existed for so long. It is sad that such a good movie gets very little publicity in the mainstream cinema. Just bcoz a movie doesnt star a Commercially successful hero doesnt mean it is not a good cinema. This is a perfect example for that.
Amazing dialogues, i have'nt seen such a sensible movie in recent times. I hope Kamal and Mohanlal does justice in their tamil version.

Dear All

I am Ajith from Trivandrum and My Grand father Late K Chellppan Pillai always narrated story of Kottyam Rajah (Pazhassi Raja) and Ravi Varma (your ancestor)and traitor Swaminatha Pattar. During the Era of Tippu Period(1780-90) Pazhasi Raja Was in MalayinKizhu Temple(trivandrum Temple) and Kerala Varma was a brave man fight till the end.

Brave people like Vaikom Pillai and Kunjikutty Pillai saved Travancore from Tippu.

These stories are part of the Trvancore School Sylabus and My Grand father passed 9th Standard (equal to BA B Ed) in the year 1931. But Unfortunately he was not inducted to a Govt Job largely because of his blood relation with Pallichal Pillai. He started trading Pepper with Surath Merchants and They also traded with Manakavu Palace.

Swaminatha Pattar's Younger Generations may be with Present BJP and Kerala Varma is unknown to many.

Great Salute to Kerla Varma of Mankavu Palace,Vaikom Padmanabha Pillai and KunjiKutty Pillai

All of them Killed by British(hanged or Poisoned) in the Period 1808-1813.
