HOCKEY or CRICKET, the debate continues

I should a be retard to write this, from a Country where Cricket is a  Religion, with biggest number of Followers next to its Maternal Religion, Hinduism. And we have No less God, Demi Gods, Pooja, Aarti, Superstitions, Idiots and Money.

In case of Cricket is a religion, I an Atheist.
Because before, I was born, in cricket, there were Batsmen, Bowlers, All rounders, Keepers, Fielder, Captain, Vice Captain, Selection committee, Coach but today we have only one group of people in Cricket, Who make Money for themselves and just others ( who have no need for it ). Heart can Easily pound, seeing the way India, has a blind affluence to this non native game. And its omni-pricking we have not found much stars, laurels and colours in our country, except for this game.

Let the Game begin
Whenever I put forth an idea or opinion against the arrogant support from Government, everyone of you for this Game, more particularly in a country we have more than 70 % of population which is defined as Youth between 20 - 35 ( The Biggest in the among the World ), its numbing people again blindly support Hockey, being a national game, we don't support it. I am against that view aswell. Here we have to understand few intrinsic points.

Everytime this debate opens up, I hear most of them saying " But Cricket is not even our National Game, why don't we promote Hockey ". For god-sake ( and if you don't believe god, put your wives or your bosses name ) pls think( i mean the real thinking, dont just browse Net . OK ?? ) before saying this again.

Our National Game is Hockey. - A Cross-sectional View
             To sum-up in Simple words, If we would have declared a National Game by 1983, we would have declared Cricket to be our National game and that's why Hockey is our National game till date. ( And Kapil would have agreed to Campaign for Congress he would have been given Bharath Rathna Too. )
By a decade down the line, I am scared, it could be, Temple-Run or Farmiville ( yeah yeah i know thats not Sports, but dont worry its not far we redefine the meaning of word SPORTS to our convenience, but before pls get approval from Ulemas of Pakistan . . . Okay. ? ).

             Yes, that's True, even today Indian Mens Hockey team has not peer for its record of 8 Gold, 1 Silver, and 2 Bronze in its Order Since 1928. That's splendid isn`t it. To understand why hockey rose to the fame of being a National Games, we need to walk along the Turf of Dhonis, Tendulkars, and Kohlis
of Hockey - Dhyan Chand, who made Derfurher ( yes you got it - 10 points -  it means HITLER ) his Fans, Feroze Khan, Ali shaukat.
                A Newspaper has said to be written " Perfection is perilous, for it tempts the gods. For once, this was proved wrong for even the god of weather paid tribute to the genius of the Indian players. Rain clouds, which had threatened to ruin the game, vanished into the blue, and thousands of spectators spent a happy hour marvelling at the incomparable artistry of the Indian team ". Yes it was after the Match India Played again Ceylon XI at Colombo, won Both matches by 20-0 and 10-0.
               If it would have been today, ESPN and Starsports would be running this a day long match and commentary for more than 4 - 5 months and FACEBOOK and Twitter will be jus filled with hockey sticks and Dhyan Chand ( Why did he had Chand in his name, itself can be posted as separate post, do you want me to write it ? ? haanhh ) pic in Profile pictures. From 1928 until 1956 Indian Mens Hockey team to lose was a World news and To win has become natural and its birth right. Todays Men in Blue is no comparision. We achieved our freedom before this Glory was set to dawn into Oblivion. Now that we have to hold something as National Game, we had Hockey as our National. We have 36 National Tournaments to-date for this sports, Odisha is the State, where this sport till date has craze ablaze, and because of which we have a big quorum of National players from Odisha only.
             If today being netizens we have no time to invest, how would you expect a License raj Squad run by JN, to find a right national game for our country. That's not fair. Not at all..

But only Nascent number of people alone will get the spark, that Hockey was introduced in India During 1885 - 1887 by British Army. This was purely introduced to differentiate between Cricket, a Game of Royal Whites and Hockey for anybody else. Wow, that's interesting Sports with a slavery
note. a Brilliant Colonial stroke Once again.

After being an Adult, everytime I watch Cricket, it always haunts me of the nostalgia of Struggles, Moronistic East India Company, the Irrepairable loss our country had undergone because of Britain, British, and Slaves of British. The Feeling is mutual when I watch a Game of Hockey, the Bitter taste of Slavery is unavoidable somewhere in the sight.

Mind you - IF you have to be against Cricket frenzy doesn`t mean you have to be Hockey Fan. Its like goes equally like, being a Critic of Kejriwal, doesn`t make me BJP loyalist, or a Fundamentalist.

Guess what, after all these.........  how will you feel if I tell you Hockey is no more our national game. Yes. Ministry of Youth affairs and Sports has declared hockey not as National Game after an RTI filed for the details, on Aug 2012. Now India has no National game. Who has time for it, lets make Money, More Money and buy a Flat somewhere, light our Childs future by killing all paddy fields and agriculture Land, and make the tomorrows society more dumb and Ultra Numb with NCERT.

Just because it was a National Game you cannot support Hockey. The promotion of all form sports is important and should be impartial. It should go with " Everyone is important and Nobody Indispensable "

Singam-2 REview

On diwali evening, one side there is a fire cracker, another side your
cousin lights a flower pot, your mom holds a lighting torch, a neighbor
shall blast a small green bomb, having skimpy dressed namitha or Mumtaz or
even mumaith khan on its cover, Suddenly your libido wakes-up, immediately
someone calls you to make a diwali wishes. This mixed feeling of Joy and
Fun, is wat I have undergone, watching Singam-2

Durai Singam, after successful completion of his Chennai assignment, returns
in sleuth mode to his home-town ( almost ) to Tuticorin. As an undercover
agent he works as a NCC trainer in a school in the day time and does all his
information gathering at his rest of time. As he is not a police officer
anymore, his father is yet to agree for his wedding with Kavya ( Anushka ).
Now new developments at tuticorin is his rivals, Dhanraj, Bhai, and Sagayam
trinity, who operates the narcotic belt of entire south from Tuticorin, for
an International drug peddler Dany, who is always said to on his on lounge
on International waters and never is said to have come into any political
boundaries of any country, who equally is dangerous.

Wait, wait, Hansika, yes she is school pupil( whattttttttt ? ? . did you
questioned Vijay being a College going guy or even Aamir. No right ! !. then
Shut=up and read ) and falls in love with Singam for his flex muscle
tantrums - high octane stunts. And yes she is niece of The Bad man Dhanraj.
Any further to divulge on the story shall appall this pen-pushing effort.

Full Paisa Vasool, as usual Like anyother Hari film. Right from his First
movie "Tamil", this directors every venture, ( except Seval ) shall display
an extended effort on screenplay and homework. Brilliant shall be
understatement for the screenplay and the editing. Surya has done justice
for the unsaid huge money. Compared to his any other venture DSP has done a
dull role only, no doughnut for you DSP.

Don't miss this Super fire brand cracker, which is here atleast for another
50 days.

Should we congratualate Hari for having 2 of his movie to have release on
Same day 1. Singam-2 and 2. Policegir, which is a remake of Saami.

   KUTTI PULI - yeahh, its not KUTTI PULI, if you see see some one writing, as such, roar at them.

Indeed it was Gold devaraj`s voice, that pulled me into this movie - 'Thaatiyaru thaatiyaru' song, indeed was a well orchestrated effort. Vairamuthu has no doubt made this song and also the "Aruvakkaran" song well.

As the name and trailer suggest, the movie is no new-  blood bath - "Kill Bill" style effort in Tamil. This movie is yet another effort in re-telling a vernacular folklore story, except than the treatmen,t the Director has venture for its Climax. This is again eulogising a loaner, rugged, unreliable middle aged Lad ( Oh yes, Sasikumar is the male no doubts, but still facts are facts, the story is about a Lad, not aged Man ).

Storyline - Single son - Kuttipuli ( Sasi ) of Widow mother -Deivana ( Saranya Ponvanna ). Puli is ready to fight anymoment, as Shakespeare describes in his poetry - All the World is a Stage. The movie begins with How Deivana ( Saranya ) was widowed. Then the colour montage begins with Grown up son and mom, where our Kuttippuli`s Mother struggling  hard to get him married and Kuttippuli strolls not to get married, having an unsaid Big bang theory - I am surrounded by Danger everywhere so, i am un marriageable " - Oh my god. ( Thats a Satire my friend )

In between there are illustration Kuttippuli`s gladiatorship and valour, enemity. The story is supposed take twist with introduction of the female Lead - Bharathi ( Lakshmi Menon ) and her pious love for Kuttippuli, but it doesn`take any new twist at all. Its really astonishing to see Girls ( both on-screen and off- screen ) fall for a petty street fighter, head to heel, on Love.

Yes for all those who gather there on the show for this pious faced, New beauty - lakshmi menon, there is a ( bad ) surprise for you all in the movie. Specially in the opening scene itself. She has lost her charm just in 2 movies, is really painful. Suddenly she looks, not what she is ( neither i dont understand the meaning of this Sentence, leave it there buddy ! ! ! ). By the way what happened to her 10th results ?? ?

The Screenplay is welldone for a debutant, and also the characters except the leads. The story is mainly featured on three pivotal characters Kuttipuli, His mom, the female lead. Somehow all the three characters lack depth. There were lot of scopes in all the technical departments to make this a better venture, that comment does not exclude the Music by Ghibran.

Sure, this movie will make its way in the box office, without any difficult, however this Movie has nothing new to offer to you, if you are regular movie goer, except than the so-proclaimed climax  of the movie.

If your next bus or flight is only by 5.00 in the morning and you are scared to get asleep, of missing your bus, take a chance and watch this movie.

Kuttippuli - A half satisfying Hunt.
