Iqbal -Hooked on !!!

iqbal_u, originally uploaded by kartik kannan.

I happened to watch IQBAL ...last week and I did enjoy the movie just as I hav done in all of nagesh kukunoor's previous movies.

IQBAL is about a deaf and dumb boy who dreams of being a great cricketer. Shreyas Talpade(IQBAL ) plays the title role of a 18 year old deaf and dumb boy. His dream is to play for the Indian cricket team as a pace bowler. Iqbal's father is a farmer and he wants Iqbal to help him to plough the fields,as he feels that Iqbal can atleast do that earn a living for himself given the fact he is deaf. Iqbal's mother and sister support him to the hilt to see his dreams through.

I felt the young girl ...played by Shweta Prasad, as the kid sister, was impressive in the sense that she displayed her emotions very well ...and potrayed her as a loving sister.Her cherubic face and innocent laughter makes the film all the more enjoyable... with her garrulous tounge that comes across very well in the movie..just goes on to show that gen next is realy loquacious and quite precocious when it comes to giving their 2 cents gnyaan.

Well I suppose all movies with this "underdog" mentality seem to do well as I guess most of the people at some point of their lives might have gone through some tough phase ...and immediately relate to it ..when something similar is shown on screen. This makes a good case study as how people can be made to think in a much positive manner after watching such movies... if i remember right Lagaan - was a case study in positive thinking and overcoming the odds in the most emphatic way.... and being an indian ..what better way to motivate people by showing the contest between bat and ball ..which the average indian can more easily relate himself to.

As the proverb goes ... "Behind every man's success there lies a woman " .. a cliched bolywood adaptation would go something like this ...Behind every successful (or unsuccessful )movie lies the background score ...and Nahesh kukunoor has just done an encore ..by playing a track repeatedly at varius stages of the movie ,called "ASHAAYEN" ..which I must very honestly say has got me hooked ...to it that I haveplayed it 174 times on my computer after watching the movie... kinda keeps u inspired ..incase a major goal is beckoning...


I guess I would pretty much be an infrequent blogger till such time my health returns to normal . There are a lot of things the mind wants to say,hands want to type .... but laziness and tiredness prevent me from doing it .

so any bloggers frequenting this page ..remember to come back after a month ...or so .... i should be in fine fettle by then..so till such time c u tata bye bye ....


I had been to college last saturday to give some gnyaan to the present final years students about what the IT industry as recruiters expects from them,and what the students would need to do (like preparing for company tests etc etc ..technically and mentally ) to get into a good company.

The awareness levels were abysmally low and there has not been much of a change from the time we were there...except for the fact that the some new rooms have been built and the college is functioning more professionally than ever before doing away with the slave like customs u find in most chennai based engineering colleges(sathyabama,rmk,st josephs ...etc etc ) .

I will put up some of the photographs soon enough ..

It was great weekend ...with some of my friends as we enjoyed playing late in the night at besant nagar beach,got drenched fully in the highly salty water of the ocean ..and gorged heavily on some lacklustre food in planet yumm that got my tummy into some problem.I have now got fever and jaundice ..so am sitting at home. I guess I would report back to work only a couple of week's later..

will blog more often as thats my only break from sleeping the whole day waiting to get better.
