The Indian Kite Runner

..it was a typical warm evening at Chennai. It was on my vacation time. I was on the rooftop holding the little one in my arms which I can quote as the most soothing thing of that hour. Down below, the street (road) was filled with auto rickshaw noises. Hazy dust was floating everytime some

OnePlus one, a phone for the class!

One of my UK friend asked what is OnePlus one when I mentioned that in social media. I would have asked the same couple of months ago. Same goes to the word Cyanogen! All of a sudden my Note 2, gave up on me and resisted any sort of battery charging. Service centre confirmed its

How do I fix Images

Often I was asked how do I enhance the picture. Honestly, I prefer to get the perfect from-the-camera itself. However, in real world, we produce anywhere between 2000 to 3000 pictures for each trip. Selecting the right ones and slight enhancement is often becomes mandatory. I was used to these below basic but very powerful

Jorge Marin Art

It was my lunch time and my walk towards my ‘favourite’  (??!!) restaurant came to near halt and got distracted from my phone call. Near to the Singapore river, UOB building hosted sculpture show was the reason. Am generally biased when it comes to metal art and this was intriguing as the details of the

What happens when you go on a vacation leaving your computer / desktop on.

I did. Exactly thats what I did. Generally I give down time during my vacations but there are times, I leave it that way and go. I never had any troubles. Until this time. Mine was a custom built – where I chose every one of the smallest components and assembled myself – and that

Captain Philips : A neat execute

  Its been sometime I wrote something about a movie; which obviously does not mean that I didn’t see any good movies. I liked “Gravity”, Ender’s Game, Thor – Dark world, and even Hunger games. Not just that, I watched more movies at home, “Jagten” also known as “The Hunt” and few other thoughtful movies.

What happens when you eat your lunch alone!

Am not Anti-Social at all, if at all the title raises your brow. If you are in a large team and generally eat with them, you will not agree with what am talking. At all! While I wanted to write about 1000 different things here, this came out of nowhere. It was a typical work

How to connect Router with BSNL modem

I will not beat around the bush for this! We will not be able to connect a router with BSNL teracom or Huawei modems, reason being BSNL modems connect as gateway where as routers expect it in bridge connection. I spent hours thinking router was faulty. Then I googled and found some admin level change

NOW YOU SEE ME

Now you see me – what did I see? :O

Movies are all about entertainment, isn’t it!. Over a period of time, entertainment mediums changing rapidly to keep audience enthused. One of the half dead medium is Magic. See this movie, and all you will feel is, there is still HOPE for it. Not like the way Obama says it though. Movie starts with street pranks

Neethane En PonVasantham – Made in Tamil but deserves Hollywood

Nethaane En PonVasantham. Am writing this for just one purpose. Just to read this review when am old. Just for the sheer purpose to know how much of joy I got out of this movie and to realize how (much) I felt while watching this flick. I tend to write just good about those movies

Never ending whirlpool of twists – Talaash – Why you will sink in it!

  Khan came back. This time, with a gripping story anyone would fall for. Its dark, intense drama which wont allow you to yawn even if you have skipped two nights of sleep. Aamir always surprises. This time, for a change, without bothering about any ‘messages’ to the society, he gave a entertainer. Pleasantly surprised –

Why Life of Pi is Must – Even for kids!

“Life of Piscine Molitor Patel” to be exact. I get super excited whenever a movie is made out of a book I read. And everytime, my expectations about the movie shoot sky high and come home with a slight headache as the movies generally FAIL to cover most of the important things. Life of Pi

Jab tak Hai Jaan

Let me be honest, I watch hindi movies rarely. Or I have started watching, ‘coz I get the subtitles in English here. I was on a ‘go for it’ mood/mode over this weekend and watched “Poda Podi”, “Thupakki” and on Sunday evening “Jab tak Hai Jaan”. First movie should have been a straight to youtube

English Vinglish – Love you mom!!

Let me not beat around the bush!. Take it. Its Sridevi’s show. A conservative, typical indian house wife’s portrayal, I seriously doubt anyone else could have done better. Its a story of a mom who is happy making laddoos and plays by the book of a typical Indian housewife. There comes few moments of emabarasment

My 10 year passion with learning atleast one music instrument still going.

Billa 2 – A perfect movie viewing experience!!

For a regular movie goer, at times, the posh, decent, quiet and mechanical experience makes to forget the past – how we used to watch movies in Indian rural theatres.

Wisdom from a cab driver!

A friday evening was spent how exactly not to be spent. I dont have much options that my mind considers other than heading to a movie here in Golden Village.
