Sivakasi na Standard!

Sivakasi na Standard!Well this is the caption one will see in most parts of Madras and get to listen in the FM radio.As a kid most of us got the impression that Diwali crackers have the same logo "STANDARD".Since it has been- the brand.And Our own Ilaya Dhalapathi is making use of this by having a brand placement in his forthcoming(hit :-))"Sivakaasi.
To some extent this sounds correct as well coz,
*Vijay films have some standard.("can watch em once"-This phrase again needs some justification{oru thadava paakalam})
*They have standard music (some times sub standard)
*They have standard stunts.(Good stunts rather)
*They have standard formula tricks-Kuthu paatu,punch dialogues,item numbers.:-P
*They have standard masala storyline.:-P

So i think it is a nice try.

India beat Sri lanka in the first ODI at Nagpur by a whopping 152 runs.Man of the Match -new skipper "Rahul Dravid".

Nice Forward...[ Katrathum petrathum]

Glorifying CAP (Cut and paste)Technology

Joke of the day

Read it somewhere just sharing it..

A millionaire kept live alligators in the pool behind his mansion. He had a beautiful unmarried daughter, and decided to throw a huge party for potential suitors. During the party he announced, "I will give one million dollars or my daughter's hand in marriage to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators."
As he finished speaking, there was the sound of a large SPLASH! There was a man in the pool swimming with all his might, with the crowd cheering him on. Finally, he made it to the other side unharmed.
The millionaire was impressed. "My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn't think it could be done! I will now keep my bargain. Do you want my daughter's hand in marriage or the one million dollars?"
The man said, "Listen, I don't want your money. And I don't want to marry your daughter. I want the person who pushed me into the water!"
