Madras cafe movie review - by Ananth Chelladurai

AC Reviews: Madras cafe

Though the movie's plot was serious it started with a "big comedy" in the name of disclaimer that the characters in the movie are work of fiction.  Even a 10 year old kid in Tamilnadu can identify that Anna is Velupillai Prabhakaran.

Trying to see this as just a movie it starts with a narration in church and I was wondering why he has to do that after 3 yrs. John looks like a drunkard, unclean, unshaved after the incident, he wasn't like that even after her wife's murder.

The movie doesn't have any songs which was a good factor. There were few scenes which also showed the atrocities done to innocent tamils in Srilanka, I appreciate being brave on showing these scenes. The scenes where the journalist try to reach LTF base camp were so real and for that reason in many scenes it was so real to portray the real situation. There were few dialogs and scenes which shows how LTTE is organized and disciplined. Many places they have worked on minute details like the pre assassination scenes. But overall Sircar have wrote the script like a congress MP looking with an one eyed view.

I was little happy that they do show some futility that happened to innocent Tamils during the civil war. But they do portray LTTE as a terrorist organization and Prabhakaran as a terrorist. I am glad that they didn't say the whole Tamils in Srilanka are terrorists.

Honestly the movie would look awesome for any Indian other than Tamils, who doesn't know much about history of the civil war. In climax when John says though he (Prabhakaran) may be a leader to few people, I still lost my prime minister will make many emotional. In fact that was one bad move that the tigers made.

Verdict: Flawed, ambitious, brave attempt of few congressmen.
Stars: 2.75/5

Naan Rajavaga Pogiren - Movie review

Naan Rajavaga Pogiren - Movie review by Ananth Chelladurai

Well, the movie starts slowly from Himachal Pradhesh and travels down south through Bhopal. There were few noticeable dialogues on agriculture. They tried their best to have suspense through out the movie.  And with a good twist at the climax. I started watching the movie with a half heart but the movie made me to watch it fully (Of course I didn't have anything else to do).

It has some elements of surprises and nice phase after the lead role starts travelling to Chennai.  But there are lot of logic holes in many scenes especially towards the climax.  Certain scenes can't be bared.  Nakul's voice is an irritating thing and a big drawback for him as an actor.  In his coming films he should try using a dubbing artist for him.

Heroines:  Sorry nothing much to say.  Hero's friend wahab has done well.  I hated the songs, GV was disappointing through out.

Though there were several sothappals (drawbacks) I could give 3/5 for the script, dialogues and efforts of new director.

Verdict: Can watch once. (if you have patience)

What is a hiccup and how to stop it

What is a hiccup

A hiccup is a kind of forced intake of breath, caused by muscle spasms in your chest and throat. There are over 100 causes for hiccups, but the most common is irritation of the stomach or the oesophagus - the food tube that leads to it. The "hic" noise comes when the breath is cut off by the snapping shut of your glottis - which is like a fleshy lid or trapdoor that separates the food and air tubes in your throat.


What about getting a friend to scare you?

That usually only works if the hiccups are psychosomatic - when you're setting off the jerky contraction in the breathing muscles yourself, but you're not aware that you're doing it. Kind of like imagining each hiccup into existence. It's not always easy to tell when this is happening, but getting someone to distract you can snap you out of it long enough for them to stop. Of course, none of these are likely to work on acute or intractable hiccups. As they’re usually started by drugs or nerve damage, they're often only treatable with more drugs. That said, some researchers have claimed successes treating hiccups with needles, radiation, or even digital rectal massage.

When I get hiccups,  I really get it for a long time.  Today I had a take a presentation for a larger audience and my hiccup was really worrying.  Found some steps in google on stopping it quickly.  Here are the steps to prevent hiccups,

How to stop hiccups?

  1. Hold your breath for 30 seconds and then release it.
  2. Sip 10 consecutive gulps slowly from a glass of water without stopping to take a breath.
  3. Swallow a teaspoon of dry white granulated sugar.
  4. Breathe into a paper bag five times in a row.
  5. Immerse your face in ice-cold water for 30 seconds.
  6. If you began to hiccup after taking a medication, seek medical help. Also see a doctor if the hiccups don't stop after 24 hours (3 hours for young children) of if they are extremely painful.
Note that these are not guaranteed ways to stop hiccups.
