Who has strong global presence, Rajini, Aishwarya rai or A R Rahman. Whose popularity you think will boost the business of Enthiren?Rajini, who is an icon here, showcased his popularity through sivaji, which was listed in UK top 10.  A R Rahman, who already finds difficult to allot time for movie here, has a good presence globally, Bombay dreams and Lord of the rings are examples of his popularity across the world. Aishwarya bachhan, who has been listed as an beauty icon, who was once nominated even for bond girl, has popularity on her own way.

I have migrated from Outlook express to Thunder bird, it was painful. Though it was easy to export mails and address book, it is not that much user friendly as OE. Prior to that i was using microsoft outlook, the transfer to OE itself was tiresome, since i missed some features (like recalling a mail, which is missing in OE)
I have already migrated to TB last week, i tried it for 2 days, and again came back to OE, now there is no way, it got expired. There are so many features missing in TB (let’s say bug!!!). Atlast i found some methods for rectifying (spent a whole day).
FORWARDING A MAIL: While forwarding a mail in TB, it goes as a attachment and not as a trail mail.
Solution: goto Tools—->Options—->Composition—->General—->mark forward messages as “Inline”
Adding SIGNATURE: Same way Signature option is also tough (it is hidden!!!).
Solution: Write the signature in notepad and save it in dard drive.
goto Tools—->Account Settings—->choose—->select the text file
REPLYING A MAIL: While replying a mail, unlike OE, TB only shows the name of the sender (Eg: xxx wrote:).
Solution: by making changes in Config Editor we can make some changes like adding date and time. But the header  like in OE can be done only when we ADDON an extension (That i downloaded somewhere…i forgot)
I have explored only this far, i have to do many changes. Anyway i’m happy that t have made some basic things done (a special thanks to Google)
Getting adjusted to TB with cursing my organisation for making me do this (I think the only reason my org. opted TB is that this is the only Open source)
Guys anybody needing help or having solutions please update me…

Lehman Brothers has filed Bankruptcy, Bankruptcy represents the end of a 158-year old company that survived world wars and the collapse of Long-Term Capital Management but could not survive the global credit crunch.
AIG, the world’s largest insurance company, has acheived bail out for $85 mn by US fed and by this the company has been saved from being bankrupt
Bank of America Corporation announced it has agreed to acquire Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. in a $50 billion all-stock transaction that creates a company unrivalled in its breadth of financial services and global reach.
Wonder why US govt given hands only to AIG and not to Lehman?
Anyway, Let us hope the bubble not burst… 
PS: i have been struggling not to put a post on this matter, but i couldn’t resist!!!

There are only few directors whose second film were as successful as their debut films. If the second film also meets the expectation and the directors are able to withstand in the industry. Some of the directors i can remember are Shankar, Surya, Selvaraghavan, Bala…Now with Saroja Venkat prabhu has also joined the club. Let’s wish him a successful future.

PS: I have only listed the recent directors and i’m sure i have missed a lot, pls add the others thru comment.

Let’s welcome venkat prabhu for the successful directors hub of tamil cinema, who has won hands down with his new flick ‘Saroja’. Normally there will be a huge expectaion for a maker whose first film is a blockbuster, and only few will reach the expectation. Prabhu has almost gone beyond the expectation. Saroja is way ahead of chennai-28, in presentation and technology and there is no minimum similarity between the both films. And on the way he has proved that his first hit was not a luck.It is not the story or screenplay that is special in this film, the presentation and narration is very much different. The film starts with Babel style, with three parallel stories running,

Story: Saroja (Vega) is the only daughter of Industrialist Viswanath(Prakash raj) , gets kidnapped by a gang headed by Sampath (sampath) for a ransom of 20 cr. Ravi (Jayaram) a police man also a friend of viswanath comes for help.  At the same time another story unfolds in chennai. Ajay(Siva), Ganesh (Premji), Jagabathi babu (Charan) and Ram babu (vaibhav) are friends who after attending Ajay’s engagement, plan to have a trip for Hyderabad for India-Pakistan cricket match. They start the roadway journey from chennai to hyderabad in ajay’s caravan, unfortunately their journey gets a halt due to a truck accident and they are forced to take an alternate road to reach hyd as per ajay’s idea and soon get diverted.
They run into Sampath and gang who has kidnapped saroja and holding her in that place. Sampath is after them since they saw the murder by him. On the escape route they accidentally relieve saroja from villian and it leads to a expected usual-to-thriller climax.

Yuvan has given a briliant BGM for this racy film, he shines in the title BGM and the music when the villian group comes.

Acting front, Premji and shiva have done a neat job. To be precise Premji has done a great job with his funny dialogues and one-liners. And he is perfectly hilarious while he mouths:
“Love ellam seekirum sollidanum, appadi sollama thaan 7 kaadhal missayiruchu”
“Takkunu thirumbatha”, pointing a tree
“I was cornered” citing a dialogue from sivaji
“Parsa maranthudahteenga, marupadiyum varamudiyathu”

There is not much work for Prakashraj and jayaram and they have done their job with not much effort. Nikitha for glamour content has done it perfectly. Prabhu has intelligently inserted the actors from chennai 28 within saroja.

It seems prabhu is delighted to use old films BGM’s in his movie. In chennai 28, he used ‘Pottu vecha malika mottu’ and a sad tune from aboorva sakotharargal for humor, In saroja he has used ‘Aayiram thamarai” when premji is sighting a new girl and a song by t.rajendar (BTW from which movie??anybody knows?) and also famous ‘Karakattakaran’ music when introducing Caravan.

Most part of the movie is happening in Night, and cinematography is good during that scenes.

Totally, Saroja is not a classic or a movie to remember, but it is enjoyable clean thriller which is new to tamil in story, narration, technology and also presentation.
 

Can’t wait…Will it release by 2010!!!
