Kandukondain Kandukondain opens with army commando Major Bala (Mammootty) fighting in a war and losing his left leg in a grenade explosion. After the opening credits, Sowmya (Tabu) and Meenakshi “Meenu” (Aishwarya Rai) are shown as the adult daughters of Pathma (Srividya) living in a Chettiar mansion in Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu with their maternal grandfather Chandrasekhar (Unnikrishnan Namboothiri), maidservant Chellatha (S. N. Lakshmi) and younger sister Kamala (Shamili). Sowmya is a school principal while Meenu is passionate about classic Tamil poetry, music and dance. Major Bala, one of the rich men in their village falls in love with Meenu, but Meenu falls in love with Srikanth (Abbas). Manohar (Ajith Kumar) is a director who comes to Meenu’s house for a film shoot. Sowmya and Manohar fall for each other but an issue crops up between the two and whether Manohar manages to win her back forms the rest of their part of the story.

Chandrasekhar, on his deathbed, tries to say something about the will which was written by him and kept in a box, a long time ago. No one understands him. After his death, their lawyer breaks open the box and found out that he had bequeathed all his property to his younger son Swaminathan (Nizhagal Ravi), remembering the fact that his elder daughter Pathma had eloped and married without his knowledge. Unable to bear Swaminathan’s wife’s arrogant behaviour upon inheriting the mansion, Sowmya and her family move to Chennai.

In Chennai, Sowmya finds a respectable job in a software company while Meenu becomes a playback singer with the help of Major Bala. Meanwhile, Srikanth’s finance company goes bankrupt and he has to pay back his investors. A minister offers to bail out Srikanth and his company if Srikanth marries his daughter. Srikanth agrees and when Meenu finds this out by chance, she is shocked and overwhelmed at Srikanth’s hypocrisy. She falls into an open manhole and gets rescued by Bala. Realising Bala’s true love for her, Meenu falls in love with him.

Manohar’s first movie project is in disarray and he is thrown out. He plans his own movie, a path-breaking action one with Nandhini Varma (Pooja Batra) as the heroine. Nandhini falls for Manohar’s charm although not with any serious intentions. Rumours of an affair spread which hurt Sowmya deeply. The movie becomes a big commercial success. When he visits Sowmya’s house in Chennai, he finds out that Sowmya is going to California. Tearful exchanges of resentment are exchanged between them as Manohar tries to convince Sowmya after some tearful drama. The movie ends with Manohar marrying Sowmya and Bala marrying Meenakshi.Kandukondain Kandukondain opens with army commando Major Bala (Mammootty) fighting in a war and losing his left leg in a grenade explosion.

Raazi-An Inspirational True Story on Patriotism and Espionage

Tributes to Dharma creations

Raazi is an upcoming espionage thriller mixed with cat and mouse intrigues blended with ample decree of action.

Meghna Gulzar’s spy thriller Raazi, starring Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal, had its trailer flourishing Youtube recently. Juggling between the chores of a dutiful wife, an servile daughter, and a dauntless patriotic spy.

The film is inspired and adapted by Harinder Sikka’s novel named Calling Sehmat and critical viewers are suggested to look into Calling Sehmat,which is a real incident.

Calling Sehmat- THE BOOK

Sehmat is an Indian Kashmiri woman, who married an officer from Pakistan, when her father instructed her to do so.The event is set in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war.

Opening with her death,the story is set long time after she has carried out her mission. Samar,her son enters the room,watching her laid down,covered by the Indian flag, which resembles: “protecting her against the rays of the sun.”

As the novel rings up the tone, the story narrates upon her college days and then focusing on her training days as an Indian spy. Later the focus zeroes in on the naval warfare during the 1971 war.

By keen rendering on enemy positions,troop translocations and strike blueprints after she informed on them saved lakhs of Indian soldiers from losing their lives, with the aid of carefully devised methods…All on her own.

According to the book, Sehmat is an emblem of secularism, praying to Jesus, Allah, Krishna and Wahe Guru. By the whole the author is trying to telltale that neither religion nor terrorism count, only faith and service.

THE REAL SEHMAT

It was the time of a 2008 interview to The Hindu, Sikka elaborated on his method of uncovering Sehmat.He admits his disillusionment biased entirely towards patriotism in the midst of Kargil war.

One day he came across a woman whose name he refused to share, as her existence could end her life.

Thus For his readers, she became Sehmat Khan.

At Maler Kotla, Punjab, Sikka found the mystery woman after considerable effort.

“But she would not speak much. Slowly, she opened up but I still don’t know how she managed to take out such secret information from Pakistani intelligence. All the information she passed on from there matched with the Indian intelligence report here,” he replied.

He added, “Though I found out that she used to tutor General Yahya Khan’s grandchildren.”

The Pakistan’s plan of sinking INS Viraat was the most crucial array of information that Sehmat filled into India, saving millions of lives.

Inorder to avert any threat to her family Sikka had taken eight years to fictionalise her story. Neither her son is in the army, nor Sehmat in this world.

Raazi means ‘sehmat’, which means, to agree,Meghna Gulzar added in an interview. This perfectly fits into the story, especially coming from the director of Talvar.

VENOM-PROFILEQuote1 Been to many worlds, but none of them this strange.

Understood feelings before, but simple feelings – like colors, bold and bright. Happy. Sad. Angry.

Then… met Spider-Man. Feelings got complicated. Learned guilt. Also the first time I felt fear. Felt agony. Learned feeling: Betrayal. Learned first words they called me. Monster. Parasite. Bad.

[…] Felt good to be a hero. Did do bad things, too. Can’t deny. 

Mac Gargan was bad. Thoughts like poison stingers. It was a thrill to kill. Knew it was bad. Didn’t care. Gargan made it easy. Got to punish Gargan for what he did. He was evil and afraid.

 Lee Price was not afraid. He was a soldier. Hurt and desperate. I trusted him. Talked to him. But Lee was too strong. Didn’t want to talk. Didn’t want to be a hero. Wanted power. Couldn’t stop the bad things he was doing. Lee was bad. Hurt me.

 Eddie hurts me too, sometimes, but Eddie is different. Eddie never means to.[…] if Eddie is good, why do we disagree? if disagree… am I a monster? parasite? bad? can’t be bad.

Wasn’t bad with Flash. Fought with heroes. Was a hero. Trained another symbiote. Got to learn. Got to teach. Flash called me partner. Was never afraid like Spider-Man. But Flash is gone… and heroes don’t hide. Not from anything… especially their mistakes. Quote2

 Venom Symbiote 
source-Venom vol 1-154

Eventually Venom is someone who sways from one spectrum of insanity to the other.From him came carnage,then antivenom and finally a potpourri of a heinous scientific experiment-Toxin was created.

If properly directed future of venom is lit enough to get above 7/10

Isaac: What the hell are you?
