Obama has started his actions. First one to catch the headlines being the freezing of actions in Guantanamo. It was one of his promises in the election to shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
He has ordered a freeze of actions, but that doesn’t mean letting free the guilty. The accused will be trialed in some other court , that is sure. The only reason for freezing the current on going trials will be the un-humanitarian kind of treatment in the guantanamo. Guantanamo had been many times hot news for the media for bad reasons. This would have forced the new President to initiate shut down actions on Guantanamo
I wish Mr.Obama all the best on his new job as the president of America
Yesterday i went to my old college(RAJAGIRI SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY). The event was an interaction session with the 2006-2010 batch B-Tech (IT) students. The event was named “Filling the Gap”. The name of the event was very apt . it was all about telling them the gap between where they are now and where they are aiming at..
I felt really Nostalgic once i entered the classroom. It was really wonderful seeing the students in my place and totally different at the thought i was in the shoes of a lecturer. i cant explain it properly through words. I have given long and short speeches on many small and large stages, have acted in skits during college days etc etc, but this very feeling was really amazing and one of its kind for me.
The class was very obedient unlike what we used to be in our days of college life ;) .
I love having such talks and I hope i can get more stages of same kind.
Today i went for the much hyped warner bros movie “Chandni Chowk to China”.
The movies and the action scenes are great in this new age bollywood movie . The Actions scens are taken in a great style. But the action scenes lacked a directors touch. I didnt feel like having such unrealistic action scenes suited the movie storyline. I felt the actions scenes were like a hump on the back of the movie.
The comedy scenes were mostly good and fairly new. Akshay and deepika has done a good job. But the director Nikhil Advani failed to make a boredomless real of 160 mintues, many a times the film made me look at my watch.
Their comment was
“We want to protect this film as much as we do with our other films,” said Richard Fox, executive vice president, Warner Bros International, “Warner Bros is very particular about copyright. We are also fighting on another front; when we hear that producers in India are trying to remake our films without permission, we have been taking ads in the newspapers, telling them they have to talk to us first.”
Mr Richard Fox please try to Get a copy of 1992 released Malayalam movie YODHA(Starring mohanlal, directed by santhosh sivan) . The Story Line of movies are similar and YODHA had a far more realistic and better comedy and actions scenes.
In YODHA Mohanlal goes to Nepal to save Rimpoche and buddhist community from villain, learns martial arts and kills the villain. In CC2C akshay goes to china to save a village from the villain, learn kungfu and saves the Village. The Movie yodha was released 17 years before CC2C and after seeing CC2C i feel YODHA is better than CC2C.
I don’t know if there is any other films which has come out with similar story line.
My rating for CC2C 2/10
and a danger note to end the film “TO BE CONTINUED”
Everyone has been talking about Malayalam Mega Star Mammootty’s blog. i too had checked it earlier..
Today i just thought i would check the website of mammootty. the site address is http://www.mammootty.com. i’m a hardcore firefox fan and always use firefox. Firefox has a great service reporting malware sites . and to my surprise while i tried to access the website of mammootty i got warning from firefox of a possible malware attack site.
the screenshot of it is
Mammootty created lots of news with his blog (with just one post), But i request him to check his website and please update and maintain it properly. Google removes such malware sites if the site is not cleared of the possible malware. they give some time before removing the sites from their database. Being removed from google might not harm him any way but surely leaves a bad mark in the internet searches. The world is becoming more connected day by day and such a bad mark might not be healty for a Mega star.
To Mammootty, if you are reading this, just one request : ” Sir, Please update Your Site “
