I Know Why Kattappa Killed Bahubali, But I Won’t Tell You

Yes, after agonizing two years I finally know why Kattappa killed Baahubali. And the reason simply isn’t convincing enough. The first part had piqued the curiosity well and the conclusion answered all questions.

Watch the trailer here  :-

I am not a review kind of person, but some movies are an exception. Needless to say, I loved…loooooovvvvvveeeed Baaaahhhhuuuubbbbaaallliiii (say with full emotions, dramatic sound and elongated expression).

It’s also important to mention that after days of insistence, my husband took pity on me and booked two tickets for the evening show. It was a wonderful surprise from a person who isn’t really a theater lover. He just can’t sit there for 3 hours.

Anyway, let’s talk about the movie. It was fabulous. Very few movies convince me to write that word. Talk about the dialogues, script, story-line, recitation, acting, sets, action sequences and so on and so forth. Everything was perfectly interwoven to make it a true masterpiece. It deserves all the acclaim and fame it is getting.

The larger than life scenes were amazing and quite engrossing. Yes few shots here and there were really slow, pacing the movie out. But soon enough it picks up the momentum. Maybe the writer likes to give viewers a shock to seep the movie more deeply.

I personally feel that Anushka Shetty as Devasena was way better in character portrayal than Tamannaah​. Perhaps the director wanted to keep it that way. She had a strong hold to her character, all through the movie. Her dialogue delivery did justice to her role in the movie. Liked her very very much.

Prabhas as Baahubali, needless to say, was a level up. Hot, sexy and that killing smile made him an instant darling. His acting and fighting sequences added more charm to his character. He is shown to be so so so strong, an unbelievable warrior, agile, clever, every mums dream son, sensitive, and a die-hard loyal to the famous ‘Maheshmati’ crown and truly a passionate lover. Phew that’s lots of good things, packed into one handsome package. It surely raises the temperature up a bit.

Rana Daggubati, such an uncanny name, is so adorable. He is such a sweetheart in real life. But the director has manged to make a true villain out of him. His vengeance, his jealousy and his hate is life like. He was never short of skills that made Baahubali so great. What his character lacked is true empathy for his people and his kingdom. He simply wants power, but doesn’t really care about aspirations of his kingdom. This is tragic and leads to his downfall, like in any other classical mythological drama.

Well Kattappa is Kattappa. It is strangely difficult to believe that such a man actually exits. But then he is right there to stay, till the very end. I am just happy…they kept him alive. I was afraid that a twist would take him away, but they thought it was better to keep him alive.

Songs, sounds and visuals were so uplifting. Your spirit suddenly sores high and you reverb with the music. Very traditional, yet echoing modern rhythm that you can actually associate with it.

In short…you should see this movie. Don’t wait for a free torrent or a free download. You won’t enjoy a pirated version like you will in a theater with all the perfect ambience and effects.

I consider it this Year’s Biggest Blockbuster

A chronic fear of buying new shoes!

I love shoes that make me love life. It is often confusing for my friends to understand how there can be a connection between shoes and the love for life. But have you ever considered the fact that some shoes make you jump, walk and dance around.

For me it is a pair of simple, well designed, a little flat and soft soled shoes that do the magic. The awe of big brands never seduces me to buy them, though in the past I did committed this blunder. Instead, I dedicate an entire day…imagine that –an entire day – to buy a perfect pair of shoe that will make me want to walk – even if it means going to a little corner shop. I don’t mind that at all.

With time I have honed the skill of buying that perfect pair of shoes. Truth is…I find it utterly horrid to go on a day’s hunt to find that perfect pair of shoes. At the same time it terribly annoys me. I cringe to near a day when my pair of perfect shoes begins to wither and I know I have to buy them at any cost.

Just forgive…

It so happens in life that you commit the same mistake more than once. Not because you wanted to, or you were careless, or you did it intentionally. Nobody likes to commit the same mistake again, not even me. But when such a situation happens, things become unexplainable. No words, no explanation…no amount of deliberation can help you then.

I faced this situation once. My eyes rounded, heart palpitations galloped and a complete blackout came over. It was just that I didn’t fall down of shock, which was immense. I was over cautious this time, how did things slip off my hands to scattered everything.

It is said (Lamhon Ne Khata Ki Thi SadiYon Ne Saza Paai) – A moment’s mistake that made centuries bear the punishment

All these thoughts ran through my head. But a mistake is mistake. Sometimes they are never forgiven, not even once…and we are talking about it being my third time.

Third time I failed in keeping my guards…how could this happen. It was so excruciating and I kept rewinding the whole incidence to figure where the folly started. But if rewinding and going back into time could help, life would have been a very pleasant thing.

I think now, had someone, somewhere tried understanding my situation they would know I wasn’t wrong. I was ashamed and knew I had committed a mistake. Had someone peeped into my heart and seen how it bled with remorse…they would have known how sincerely sorry I was.

None did, and I had to bear the whole brunt. But why this insensitivity…why not understand others person’s point and forgive, even if it’s the third time. When a person is pleading and already buried under the burden of his mistake, why make things more difficult for him.

Forgive, let go and move on! Forgiveness is the biggest thing you can give to a person and his biggest punishment.

A person so sincerely sorry for his wrongdoings, hopefully doesn’t repeat it a fourth time. And if he does, time will definitely punish him.

I Searched For Happiness

To be #moreprecise before you read, it is not a poem though it may sound like one :).

It was so…..

I searched happiness in things I was made to believe are important in life.
But it did not work exactly the way I thought.

I searched happiness in money. It bought me most of the things, but not a single glint of happiness.

I searched happiness in dreaminess. It brought me the deadliest curses of all.

I searched happiness in loneliness. It brought me darkest of the nights.

I searched happiness in comradeship. It brought me laughter, but in splinters of moments.

I searched happiness in peace and got a moment to think.

Happiness is indeed in harmony that you find inside. You are happy when you know you are happy. You can’t search happiness; you have to pursue it inside your heart, body and soul.

She Is A Puzzle!

Women have been a puzzle for most, if not all. Centuries after centuries tryst to understand them have only heaped more confusion. And, if you dare to challenge woman’s instincts, you’ll find yourself even more baffled. In truth it wasn’t supposed to be a mystery at all. Women were simple and they had very simple needs. It must have got entangled somewhere in between, when (more…)

An engaging recent New Yorker article* describes the constructed language Ithkuil, which aims to be “maximally precise” by “eliminating the ambiguity, vagueness, illogic, redundancy, polysemy (multiple meanings) and overall arbitrariness that [are] seemingly ubiquitous in natural human language.”

ninjaOur first response was that the creator of this constructed language had likely not seen our recent blog post about connotation vs. denotation in brand names. The post notes that connotation is often more important than denotation in brand names. An example is gazelle. For the many who have never actually seen one of these animals, the literal meaning may be a bit blurry, yet to them the gazelle is still likely to connote swiftness and grace.

Our second reaction to Ithkuil was to ask why, as its creator noted, overall arbitrariness is so widespread in human language. The answer’s pretty easy if we picture what occurs in ordinary conversation: as…

Amusing or literally regaling 😉

The Daily Post

English usage snobs all over the internet shudder when they hear the word “literally” used to mean its opposite. For example, somebody who claims to have been “literally scared to death” actually means that he was figuratively scared to death. If he had been literally scared to death, he wouldn’t be around to tell us about his fate. Search Google for the simple word “literally” and you’ll find no shortage of sites correcting the misuse. Some fun treatments include that of The Oatmeal (beware, it’s a little off-color) and xkcd.
