Manassaare - dont miss it

TO begin with, the movie reminded me of one of my fav movies ever "One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest" . .

I actually did not expect much from Manassaare and I guess that’s the reason that the film has left me dumbfounded. The movie has very few negative aspects and a lot of positive aspects. So let me summarize the negative first so that it can be forgotten and elaborate on the positives so that they remain with us.


  • the second half is slightly dragged and cannot keep up to the pace of the first half.
  • I am not sure if andrita was the right choice to play such a intense character. She looks good thou but her character becomes slightly irrelevant after a while.
  • The villain doctor theme could have been avoided I think. . it ate too much of screen time from such a feel good movie otherwise.

Thumbs up . .

### Digant Digant and more Digant – I couldn even imagine that Digant could have turned into such a sensitive performer. Very matured acting. Its definitely different from all his chocolate hero potrayals.

What I liked best in his performance was that he was inhibited. He has shed all his consciousness and has let himself free in front of the camera. He looks undoubtedly stunning . .his dialogue delivery is crisp and appropriate. His body language is wonderful. And he steals the show in so many places.

  • I donot want to reveal the plot – but the sequence where he is trying to fool the doctor to take him back, he says “yeah . . please . . . .”
  • Every time he says vaapaas hogana baa please . . followed by his nakhras

### the comedians in the film are ooutstanding . . .Satish Ninaasam is brilliant . . along with the background score that accompanies him . .he he he . . . . . . the Dharwad Kannada Jagadguru is simply supppppppppppppppppppppppppperrrrrrrrrrrrrrbbbbbbb . . . .!!! and so is Mitra . . . with his “Batte” obsession.

### satya hedge scores with his brilliant cinematography. The camera work is outstanding. I was fullu impressed with the ligting techniques used and the tone of the entire film. The warmth does not go away any where and that’s beautiful.

hands down to this brilliant movie that’s cute . . some times disturbing and some other times thought provoking and mostly entertaining. The true winners of the movie are Yograj Bhat for his direction and his whimsically humorous writing. Satya Hegde for his brilliant visuals . . . the comedians for putting life into the film . . and for Diganth – the soul of the movie. Who has gone beyond his amaaazing looks and his dimples and doodh peda image, to turn into a very matured performer. Guys catch this movie. Don’t miss it!!!

Vignesh Hebbar, associate vice president, India Marlabs Software talks about his journey into the IT industry

I started my career as a medical representative
. I was 22 years old when I started my career. This job involved selling hospital products to doctors, nursing homes and chemists.

During 1998, IT was booming and all the careers were converging towards IT
. I wanted to get into the IT industry though I didn’t have the requisite qualifications and experience. One of my seniors in my erstwhile organisations prior to 1998 had taken up a career in the IT industry. With his guidance and support I moved to the current field.

My first salary was Rs. 1200 per month in the year 1992
. I worked as an interim Medical Representative representing a distributor by name KK Associates for Johnson & Johnson – Hospital Products Division.

With Graduation in Arts, I had to sell Hospital Products and it required medical knowledge
. It was quite challenging to meet doctors and talk to them one to one. With the support of my colleagues and seniors, I was trained adequately to handle this and I managed to live up to the expectation.

My first task at work was to identify the target segment in an assigned territory
and categorise them into Tier 1, 2 and 3 Customers and come up with a Sales Plan to reach out to them effectively within a given period of time.

how do i let you go?

I hoped that the night would never end . .

Time just froze up to eternity

But it dint . .

I was told be strong

Not to think too much

And I did all that

But I was wrong.

How did I let myself be so vulnerable?

How did I loose myself?

How do I face myself now?

How do I face this world?

How do I get rid of you?

How do I remove the scars?

How do I feel loved?

How do I heal?

Where do I put all the anger?

How do I clear my soul?

How do I keep myself alive?

When I am already dead?

Guys . . Is my diet working?

My week has been horrible. Health is still problematic, but much much better. Emotionally I am wrecked because sometimes accepting reality can be hard on you. But again it leaves you peaceful. When you just decide to move on, you let go of the baggage and are ready to fly.

All that’s good in mah life now is work and me. I am insanely experimenting and trying to figure out what’s good and bad for me. I know my diet is kind a helping me, but I gotta try harder.

It’s a na├»ve attempt to ask but the ulterior motive being to flaunt. Thought these pictures look fairly descent. Kindly feel free to flatter me. I will be much obliged.

Love you all.

Black and White

I am down with severe fever since two days. manged to work a little but had to give up and sleep at home. Fevers tend to make you nostalgic. You think of all the good things about your past. You sleep and sleep and sleep. Its a good reason to take a break. its like u r in a black and whit film.

but feveres are more interesting when you have someone to take care of you. or when you have some one to show concern. you feel like the whole world is caring for you. but when u have no one to care for you, u miss it badly.

I just realised in these two days of being bed ridden that, I truly donot have any friends circle right now. I have friends from work and other friends, but they are all far away and busy with their life. The all care, but are not here! now! and I seriously think i need a new friends circle immediately. My new mission as soon as I am back on my foot!!!

i watched lots of TV and films . . . and saw some amazing stuff lying down and resting. Some lines just keep lingering in my ear . . .

the line from Brothers and sisters, a TV show where the Daughter Katie is talking to her mom, who has just told every body that she knew her husband had an affair with another woman for past 15 years .. .

MOM: i alwaus new. .. . but he promised that it would stop . . and he later went on to buy her a house . . .

KAT: But he loved you mom . . .

MOM: he kept betraying me . .and i let him do it . . i dont know why . .

KAT: because he loved you . .

MOM: ya he loved me . . and he did not have to give uo anything to love me . . so whats the big deal?????

woaaaawwwww - what a line? people love you . . great . . . .but if they dont have to give up anything to love you . then whats the big deal???? how special are we? we actually dont matter . ..

Another line is from this Musical called RENT -

525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes - how do you measure,
measure a year?

In daylights? in sunsets? in midnights? in cups of coffee?

In inches? in miles? in laughter? in strife?

In 525,600 minutes - how do you measure a year in the life?

How about love? How about love? How about love?

Measure in love. Seasons of love.

MIss You

How many stars are in the sky tonight? Do the same stars appear every night? Or are they different ones? Stars are so many light years away from us. In that case are we looking at the past when we look at the stars? Isn’t it true that the present day state of the star will only be visible to us after many light years?

I am literally gasping for breath. I am so stressed out of work that I feel like running away. Sometimes, it’s so simple to be ordinary! Why do we have the urge to excel? Is career so important or is passion over rated? It’s confusing because I feel good about my work but I have no one to share it with.

Olden days were great. Friends had time for you and you had time for friends. With time, time fades away. You realize you live an illusion.

I miss Archana and being with her. I miss taking bike rides with Vikram and eating Parathas off his lunch box . . .I miss craking jokes with Shreethi .. . I miss being bossed over by Amit . . Laughing out loud with Nandini . .. Discussing bizarre things with Amila . .

Singing and Pjing with Sahu . . . talking to Praj . . .being arty with Rash . .Watching movies with Ravi . . Discussing books with Pavan . . . . touring with Pammi . . Concerts with Pal . .
