Strange people and stranger thy ways

Few weeks back on a Saturday morning I was cycling towards Hebbal for practise. There were few other cyclists who overtook me on their imported road bikes. They were so nice and said HI to me. It was nice of them to be courteous.
Following day I was running along same route and in opposite direction. I saw few of them on their cycles and recognised their faces. Now, I said HI to them and they stared at me as if I made some mistake or like I was an alien.
In the end I understood, it was because I was on the cycle earlier day they wished me. So, its the cycle that matters not the effort you put in for being fit. Running involves lot more effort than cycling. Wondering why the object gets respect than the man.

Couple of days back I was riding on my motorbike towards Chennai from Bangalore. At Hosur, there was a couple from Bangalore in their car riding somewhere. They unmindful of who whether there was vehicles behind thru plastic cover from the car onto the road. Such a poor sense. The same people could be sitting inside air conditioned room and discussing on environment and how to throw waste into the garbage bins. Same was the case when I was returning from Chennai today evening. Atleast they had manners to apologize and listened to my abuses.

What is wrong with people??

Unnai Pol Oruvan – Movie Review

A remake of the hindi movie “A Wednesday”. I have not watched the hindi movie so I cannot do any comparison.
Kamalhassan & MohanLal two big actors in South Indian film industry acting in same movie. The question is who will take more screen time and the limelight. In reality both of them have not eaten into the movie and made it dumb one. Who is the hero, who is the bad guy is not what this movie is all about and neither one of them plays a role of good or bad.

All the characters are well brought into the main storyline and there are no loose ends. One will not feel bored during course of the movie. The tight script keeps you engrossed.
In certain places there are some naturalistic touch also given. Like the hacker talking to his girlfriend when brought to find out from where Kamal makes telephone calls. Or the ever news greedy media people. Police constable taking advantage of girl in house due to power. Bullet vest which covers till the neck. Task Force cop riding the Royal Enfield bullet to go with his macho image. Guy who pees in his pants during interrogation.

Kamalhassan plants bombs across Chennai city to secure release of 4 terrorists. What happens in course of conversation between Kamal & MohanLal & the events surrounding it.

Camera work is good. Director does not waste time in unwanted introductions or songs. Background music is really refreshing and good to hear. Dialogues are crisp and short and neat.
A definite watch and worth watching twice. I should watch once more to notice the intricate stuff.

Watched it second time tonight. 2nd time in first 2days of release of movie.
Just wondering during transportation, why Inayathullah & Karamchand were handcuffed together but not Abdullah & Ahmedullah??
Some small details are taken care of, like tomato falling down bag which Kamal places it back. Humorous & crisp dialogues.
“I am a common man”
“Yedu nadakanump adu nadakum” (What has to happen will happen)
