Yaavarum Nalam-Review

Hello friends..Now am back with my next post.For my last article I got a reasonably good response..Its time for some real entertainment..So now am gonna give a short review about the recently released Yavarum Nalam-a Madhavan starrer.These days am having a kind of tight schedule and I rarely watch movies.Today accidentally I went for this movie.Actually I thought of giving a miss for this movie.Now I feel for that,coz had I missed it in theater,I might have been cursing myself.

Well,now coming to the review...As most of you know,Yaavarum Nalam is a bilingual movie(in hindi,its the movie 13B).At first I too thought this is gonna be another build up movie.To my surprise the movie was really thrilling.The movie starts of with Maddy and his family moving to a new house in an apartment,the door no. of which is 13B.Maddy lives with his brother,sister,wife,brother's wife,mother and with the 2 kids of his brother.

Maddy's mother,wife and his brother's wife,all the 3 ladies are die hard fanatics of Mega Serial.Its natural,because mostly ladies(or even gals) means serial lovers only na..:P :P..So these 3 are serial lovers and maddy often mocks these ladies for their fanaticism towards serial.(This maddy too will start loving serials,go through the full review ;) ).

As this is a horror movie,everything that should not happen in a new house,happens here.Starting from the milk-warming-ceremony(I mean PAAL KAAICHARTHU),everything goes wrong.The lift in the appartment will not work for Maddy alone.It works fine for almost everyone else.In his house,nailing the walls(to install photos of the god),is also troublesome.Like this everything encounters some type of problems.But the ladies doesnt care about this and all,they keep on watching serials(what to do,the ladies are like this..hmm).

They start watching a serial called YAAVARUM NALAM in a channel called EYE TV.Maddy's sister is too poor in studies(like me :P) and she has so many arrears.One day everyone leaves for a marriage except Maddy and his sister.His sister goes to college to check her results.One of the residents of the apartments knocks his door as Maddy called him for lunch.They decides to have a beer,but the man's pet(obviously a dog,as its a horror movie),gets frightened and runs away from his house and it will not enter into the house.Maddy gets confused.And at that time accidentally he starts watching that Yaavarum Nalam serial.To his surprise,the incidents in that serial,closely resembles with those in his life(especially those that has happened after they came to this house).The family in that serial too has the some no. of members(the relationship between them too is exactly same as our hero's family).

On that he sees the brother character getting a promotion and an increment of 10K.For his brother too,the same thing happens.The sister character gets a pass in all subjects(including 12 arrears) with a percentage of 69.13(in serial).Maddy's sister too clears off with the same percentage.So he decides to meet the writer and director of the serial.While doing this,he gets a huge shock,as there is no such serial in that channel.Then Maddy realizes that there is something wrong with his new house.

He goes to a sub-inspector,his friend and explains him his problem.As usual he laughs out loudly.Maddy brings him to his house.Interestingly a police character is introduced in that serial too.Then something happens and the SI too understands the seriousness.These 2 guys meets doctor Balu,who is a close friend to Maddy's family and asks their doubts regarding ghosts and athmas, as the doctor has done lot of research about the ghosts and etc..They get some answers.

You have to understand this fact that apart from the hero and his cop friend,none of the family members knows that the serial is the work of ghosts and it resembles their life.

As I said earlier,now Madhavan became a serial fanatic too :P(but only for this serial),to know whats gonna happen next.Suddenly in an episode,the family in the serial is brutally murdered.A person hits everyone using a hammer and kills the whole family.Maddy listens this story from his wife.He asks his wife,did they show the killer's face,for which she replies no.So he realizes that some one is gonna do the same to his family too.He becomes restless.On that day night the tv gets switched on itself and this serial starts.Maddy on hearing the sound wakes up and starts it.The serial displays CLIMAX and the killer's face is shown slowly.Maddy gets excited and gets too curious to watch his face.He gets shocked and left speechless.Why?Because the killer shown in the serial is none other than our MADDY.

So Maddy realizes that he is gonna destroy his family.What next?Did Maddy kill all his family members?Or was he killed by some one else?Why Maddy's face is shown in that serial?Has the evil spirit attacked him?Or is he suffering from multiple personality disorder?
To get answers for all these questions,watch the movie in THEATER.

The movie has a terrific BGM.Kudos to music directors Shankar-Ehson-Lloy and the movie has just 2 songs(which doesnt stop the pace of the movie).Hats off to Vikram.K.Kumar,the director for making a real horror movie.

My Rating-3.5/5

Verdict : Dont Miss It

1000 Roobai Noottu-A Cover Story

Hi hi hi...As I said in my earlier post,here comes my first post about one of the best(?? :P) incident in our life.The people who were involved in this cover story might very well have guessed what this story is all about.Anyway I want to type some thing about that great incident here.
First of all I will give a short description about the lead characters in the story.As IPL is fast approaching I am starting with a cricket post first.We have so many talented cricketers in our class/college.And they are:

Harish Bharath(The remo dude)-He is our Adam Gilchrist-(Bcoz he will never take any catches genuinely but will appeal and confuse the umpire and will get the wicket)
GokulaKannan(The TCS Legend)-He calls himself as Irfan Pathan(Enna koduma sir ithu)
Harish.M(My self,the so called Ramu :()-I am the Uthappa(Y u know,only he is dropped from the team now :D )
Sundar Raman(The London domar)-He is our Ramesh Powar(At that time his physique was like that)
G.Karthigeyan(The Gym GK)-He is our Rahul Dravid(He will be very happy to hear this)
D.Karthigeyan(The respected Opicer)-He is our Ishant Sharma(Because he will be the not out Batsman forever,as he wont face even a single ball)
Keshava.R.K.A.Varma-He is our Dhoni(A match winner and a cool keeper)
Krishna Saran-He is our Yusuf Pathan(A destructive batsman)
Kumareshwar-The Steve Waugh(His twin brother Mark Waugh played in the rival team)
M.S.Karthik(The Dominator)-He is our Anil Kumble(Because he will call himself a spinner,but the ball will never spin,but some how manage to get wks)
Deepak(The mokka mama)-He is our Rohit Sharma(As he will not bat,but still will be in the team forever)

So this is the playing 11,we have some substitutes too.I will give a finishing touch why I am including these substitutes.
1.John Alex
2.Mohammad Jerjis

And am not including R.Harish and John,the reason I will tell in the climax.
The other team is our senior batch and I dont know any of their names.So the team is announced.Now I have to give a brief summary about what has happened till that time.A small flash back.We played the cricket tournament organised by our department seniors.In that we were knocked out in the very first game.But we asked the organisers to provide another opportunity since we have paid an entry fee of Rs.300.He too accepted and conducted another match for the teams which were knocked out on the first game itself and we won that match with the help of our Dhoni and Yusuf Pathan.

So till now things are going pretty cool.Whats the suspense in this story?Whats the twist in this?Now comes the most expected day(Sambavam nadantha andru). We bunked our afternoon session for the sake of playing in this qualifiers.We went to ground.Now what next?

The toss.In the last 2 matches our Irfan Pathan captained the team and went for toss,but he couldn't win the toss,so this time we chose our lucky mascot,The Dude,Adam Gilli-Harish Bharath to go for the toss.As usual he successfully won the toss(Dude naale vetri thaane).Now you people may be thinking that we are going to start our batting.If u think so,I am sorry,because here comes my first twist.
The stumps were placed and everything was gearing up to start.Suddenly there came some unexpected people came to the spot.Who are they?Yes they are the rockstars of this CSE department.

The Maddy-Mr.Sabanayagam
The Small Maddy-Mr.Ganesan
The boss-Mr.Labbai
and some more super stars were there.

What happened?They got our Id cards and went off.Me and Irfan Pathan tried our best to escape,but the rock stars were quick enough to snatch our Id cards.They said that we didnt get permission to play cricket in college hours and said its an offence.We finally performed a march past to the HOD office. And we were outstanding there(I mean we were standing out).
Now comes the real Super Star,Mr.Sridhar,the HOD.He simply came towards us and said this is a black mark on u.Who cares if its a black mark or question mark.
He didnt leave with that,then he went on and fined us Rs.1000.Hope u ppl might have understood why the title is 1000 roobai nottu :( :x .

We complained that a senior student only misguided us,HOD said he will take action on him.Did he take?Yes he took action(as he is an honest man).Whats that action?The senior bugger who was responsible for all these was awarded an 'S' grade for his project.Long live HOD.

Ok now the finishing touch about the substitutes.Atleast we were part of the team we paid 1000.Y did Alex,Jerjis and TT pay 1000?The answer is here:
Alex was leaving to tambaram for his personal work.He became bit excited on seeing us taking bats and ball.So he came with us.His ID too was caught.He paid a 1000.
Jerjis?He was bringing stumps as he was about to go to class after giving the stumps.Unfortunately his ID too was caught.
TT(Karthick?)-He is the poor fellow in this.He went home for some personal reason and had OD too for that."OD achu BD aachu,take the one thousand" was the judgment given for him.Hope I have justified by adding these guys as substitutes.
Why I didnt include R.Harish and John?Bcoz they escaped and didnt pay the 1000 till the end.So they are out of the team.
Hope u had a mokka post and my next release may be one with my dear friend Dude(Harish Bharath as the lead character :D)
