Dont mess with him

Though Cricket is my favorite sport (as for most Indians) I also love to watch football(soccer) though not a religious follower..I like it for its energy,speed,josh and the fun..I like Argentina the most. And the new wave in Argentinian football is Lionel Messi .
hes the wonder kid with great football skills.check out his recent goal for his club Barcelona against Getafe which is compared to the Great Diego Maradona's goal against England in the 1986 world cup.

Edhanalay Edhanalay (why ? why ?)

whenever we do something or about to there might be a question of Why..?
well after watching this movie I thought i shud have asked this question before watching.
Well no big reason to watch the movie.. I went to watch the movie jus because it released on Tamizh New years day and Harris Jayaraj's music and Jeeva's camera( well he directed this movie.. I liked 12 B too..) But padam paathathuku apparam yen da paathom nu ayidichu..
Melbourne- captured in the camera,music i thought were the saving grace..

music plagiarism err.. inspiration

People normally or sometimes have the habit of comparing the tune of any new song with the ones that they had heard before.I am no exception.In fact we will find that many songs are similar to some other older song and vice versa.
I happened to listen to songs from a new Tamil movie "Naan Avan Illai" whose music was scored by Dishyum fame Vijay Antony.Most of the songs in the album were either remixes of older songs or inspired (read rip off)by some other songs .
One song kakha kakha is total rip off from number Main hoon Don from the movie Don 2006.
I Liked the song "Radha Kaadhal Varadha" which is a remix of a an old Gemini Ganesan song .This movie movie itself is of the same genre- Remake of a old movie of the same name.

World cup 2007 gets hotter

Big hits,stunning catches,superb run outs ,high scores,quick wickets - these are the things that one day cricket is known for and this is what brings crowds to the grounds .Well this is not all.What makes ODIs more interesting are those thrilling last ball finishes .South Africa and New zealand are normally known for being involved in thrilling close finish one day matches.But todays world cup match between England and Sri lanka went till the wire and brought the somewhat jaded world cup some charm.
England should have won comfortably when they were cruising along in the middle overs.But thanks the brilliance of Sri Lankan bowlers who were well complemented by their hard working fielders turned the match sri lankas way.But New chap Ravi Bopara and veteran Paul Nixon took it till the last ball where Dilhara Fernando held his nerve to coast to an important victory.As things are at the moment at the world cup the 4 teams i think that are most likely to make it to the semis are Australia,Sri Lanka, New Zealand and SouthAfrica and man those matches are gonna be great.I personally want New Zealand to lift the trophy as i always felt that they were a very good all round one day side.
Sri Lankan team was wonderful.they played for each other and they played as a team which is most important.Our Indian cricketers should observe them play and learn from it instead of complaining about coach,pitch and stuff.I honestly believe that all elder players in the team should be shown the doors and youngsters should be given the responsibility.
Meanwhile the Kerry Packer act of Zee TV boss Subhash Chandra is taken in the constructive sense and hope it does some good to the cricket in India.
