Ha Ha….. Here comes the original source of Dosth Bada dosth… It’s a nice song… Even if its lift, I think Yuvan has done a good job for this movie…
The source is British New Wave musician, Thomas Dolby’s ‘She blinded me with science’! The Tamil song that sounds alarmingly similar to this track’s opening – complete with the rhythm (synth hook in the original) and the tune of the first 2 lines is….’Dosth bada dosth’ from Saroja, with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja! Hmmm…so, what do you think? Mail me! Thanks to Manoj Varkey for this info – excellent ear you’ve got man!

A really humourous take on the sorry state of affairs within the Indian government in the present day.
Government of India
Ministry of Human Resources Development
Department of Culture
Films Division, New Films Subdivision
No. B1452/234/2003 Dt. 23.12.07
Film Director, Mumbai
Ref: Film story submitted by you, regarding financing of films by Govt of India; Your letter dt. 2.12.90
The undersigned is directed to refer the aforementiontioned letter and state that the Government (GOI) has examined your proposal for financing a film called ”Mahabharat’. The VHLC (Very High Level Committee) constituted for this purpose has been in consultation with the Human Rights Commission, National Commission for Women and Labour Commission, in addition to various Ministries and State Governments, and have formed definitive opinions about the script.
Ok. I was wondering why there was no controversies so far. This has become too lame a marketing strategy these days. Almost all the big-budget pictures have some kind of controversy tailing them. I guess this is how it works.
- Make the film.
- Before the release, get someone to start some kind of controversy. If its communal in nature than all the better. Else, get one of the heroins or item number girls to file a case against the director/producer about some *uncensored* unethical scene in the movie.
- Let the religious activitists take it to the next level.
- Director/Producer publicly refuse to compromise with censorboard on any scenes. They say the film has to be uncut to retain its authemcity.
- Let the media create a “stir-fried-vegetable” out of the issue.
- Director/Producer declare the release date even when the issue is hot and unresolved.
- Finally, two days before the release director/producer compromises with censorboard and public to shop of some scenes.
- Movie released on the set date.
- It draws more crowd for the reason of curiosity about the controversy than the actual quality of the movie. And movie breaks collection records within the first 15 days of opening.
- Mission accomplished.
Anyway, Here’s the latest one…. on Jodha Akbar. Not sure whether this is realy true or just another marketing ploy. Read the rest of this entry »
Like all other Stephen King stories, this is another classic spine-chilling horror. I have always loved everyone of King’s works inluding Carrie, Misery, Pet Cemetry, Dark Half, Children of the corn etc. And this on falls right in the league of good horrors. Loved it. Worth the time.
Writer Mike Enslin, an author of two hit books, focuses on supernatural phenomena. As research for his latest book, Enslin is determined to check out the notorious room 1408 in a New York City hotel by personally staying as a guest in the fabled room. With the intention that 1408 is just a myth perpetuated by stories and rumor that Enslin has collected for his past works. However, hotel manager Mr. Olin has strong objections to Enslin’s stay and only warns him of possible danger to come. But Enslin is determined to go through and convinced that the horrific past of 1408 is just mere coincidence and a myth. But what Mike Enslin is about to experience is no myth, as 1408 truly is a room where the guests don’t check out by noon.
The movie is uncannily similar to the EVENT HORIZON movie. The Sun is dying. A group of scientists go out to kickstart the sun with a bomb. They fail. Seven years later, the next crew goes in for the same. The see the first crew’s spaceship. Something goes wrong. Most of them die. 2 come out alive.
Well, it’s definitely a timepass. Do not expect anything spectacular. But, if you like space, empty haunted spaceships, eerie dark places…. then this movie might be interesting.
50 years into the future, the Sun begins to die, and Earth is dying as a result. A team of astronauts are sent to revive the Sun – but the mission fails. Seven years later, a new team are sent to finish the mission as they are Earth’s last hope.
The Sun is being destroyed from inside out by a type of highly stable form of matter that renders nuclear fusion impossible, by turning common matter on its own kind. The only hope is to send a team of astronauts to detonate a massive, highly energetic bomb, able to destroy this strange matter and restore Sun’s natural state.
