Size Zero 2015: Content is zero.

Preview Anushka Shetty needs no introduction of her fame and characteristic diversity. When she first announced she would like to don a role of a chubby girl with extra weight, there appeared a sense of belonging in her approach as right candidate for highlighting woman issues. Teasers released later on gave us a hint of what’s in store for us – teaser of emotions with unearthing of sentiments of fatty women who find it difficult to cope up with being labelled a burden on parents. Postures of Anushka alongside Arya tried to make this one a block buster. Music by M.M. Keeravani enticed audience. And finally, was the story by Kanika Kovelamudi written to highlight issues pertaining to weight loss and subsequent marriage sufficiency or just a marketing trick to woo audience?

Kumari 21F: Ask your spouses their definition, domain, and range of maturity. CC: Sukumar writings

Santhosh, ScoopLense.

Introduction The message is simple from Sukumar from Kumari 21F directed by his student and assistant Surya Prathap. Sukumar had earlier directed Arya, 100% Love, and Nenokkadine (One) to a very good applause from class and mass audience and as one could see in presenting emotions he appeared set to stand out from the rest of the cut, and so it’s expected from Kumari 21F a symbolism of womanhood as the title itself speaks of an unmarried female at age 21. The female lead in the movie talks about maturity on numerous occasions and lack of cohesion in applying mind to unconditional love. In this age of liberalization, privatization, and globalization (LPG), it’s quite uncommon to find purity in love and bonding, especially between two adolescents with no blood relation, chief thanks to competitive edge forcedly imposed on human beings to an extent of becoming robots aided by fast food culture and misuse of technology.

Message from the movie – Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics of understanding

The relationship between two adolescents falling in love must be invariable. Mathematically speaking, the love channel is directly proportional to the level of understanding of fluctuations of the said minds, and chemically speaking it’s about enhancing the bond angle between two minds dying for each other, and quantum notionally any loss of energy in trust in the partner would automatically result in spiralling path of en electron into nucleus (call it potential energy or increase in kinetic energy as the electron moves closer to nucleus). The theory that an electron would have crashed into nucleus was rejected straight away by observers of quantum as the theory of black body radiation was developed. And Modern Physics took birth with eventually many suspicions experimentally proven practically wrong. Basic point here is that theories of understanding of nature may be infinite, and, as one reduces contradictions and confrontations one by one with results that can lead to insights which are open to testimony one enters into realm of pattern with which nature was operating since time immemorial. And that’s what you see in science. As Richard Feynman, the century’s best theoretical physicist put forwarded the view in his famous Feynman’s Lectures on Physics that Mathematics and love are not science to prove them wrong or right as test of their validity is not an experiment, we can say that love is neither science nor fiction. Sukumar wanted something to establish and we’ll see how his director traversed the path. Was he successful in establishing his writer’s theory?

Plot and Screenplay

A female named Kumari proposes the moment she spots a joe named Siddhu, who dreams of making it to Singapore as chef. She says that love at first sight surfaces as a result of a chain of chemical reactions as catalysts in brain of an individual trigger these only and only (iff condition) when their eyes sport an intriguing person of such an intensity – all within 0.2 seconds. Hero Siddhu reveals this phenomenon to his friends who are any but humans going by their way of living and thinking standards. These wayward individuals earn money by all but legal and official means, partake looted money with Siddhu for a return of delicious recipes and drink, and pass on time unproductively. This barter is not unusual in movies of this genre as love and crime are generally related; if the crime is not physical it can be psychological in the name of caste and religion.

Siddhu gets confused with the behaviour of the girl, who preaches time and again that maturity is beyond the norm and accepted notions of prejudices on mating, cooing and possessiveness of woman/man. The irony with this girl is that, after preaching her boy friend the ABC of maturity, she is seen jealous when Siddhu runs after another girl as a means of retort – behaves ingratiatingly with other girl. And as curtains begin to fall, the boy friend of this girl friend realizes his mother’s perceptional blunder in understanding their bread winner (Siddhu’s mother leaves her husband for she misconstrues him in a photograph) and reaches his girl only to find her in an unconscious state after rape. This rape is committed by none other than his friends and it turns out that blood stains on her saree show just not to the hero but also the world that she was physically virgin till that day.

Before concluding this plot, It’s customary on my part to write a situation in the part II wherein girl character offers condom packet with a warm send off and requests her boy friend to narrate intimate moments with the second girl character of this movie. This irks boy friend character as he finds himself in catch 22 situation. Again comes the thesis that maturity is about understanding and liking each other regardless of mistakes in the past. I personally thank the director for not showing the barbarous act of hero’s friends in the end.

Analysis of screenplay and deviation from socio-economic ecology of India; and basic deviation of message of Sukumar

So, what is the message that Sukumar wanted us to recognize, or, perhaps discover something revolutionary? Practically, it’s nothing beyond crossing of ways of imagination among boys and girls of teenage. The movie’s title is apt as it narrates a heavenly matured girl talking of truth which no boy of her age would like to agree – with glaring exceptions.

Love between a boy and a girl is blind and is unconditional.

Let’s examine further. Take for example profiles listed out on the much followed marriage portal (mirage perhaps?) You’ll find numerous instances of immaturity and categorization of humans by sensitive elements – like caste, sub caste, gothra, place of birth, and educational qualification, and, we’re not even talking about money disparities for nature sake. Some profiles indicate their inbuilt money lending nature – on the lines of Shylock in the novel Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare. Parents imbibe progeny, that is the mirrors of their image and consciousness, within their psychological framework which may be fragile or agile. All the actions are triggered by a channel called thought. According to Socrates, a mind talking to itself is summarized as thought which necessitates action for a fair (or reasonable) return of something – resources, happiness, avenge, or nothing. An action can be random, so can be a thought.

  • Human existence is nothing without institution of family and its off springs. Incubation in hostile terrains leads off springs to develop polarization on sensitive issues, where objectivity is arrived at after considerable thought process. Pleasant ecological system with no room for imbalance is therefore highly advisable.
  • Prolonged misuse of heritage of infections, such as flesh-caste virus, religious bigotry, regional bias, can not be treated overnight as notions already enter into brain during its developing stage. Early streamlining is therefore highly advisable.
  • Universe started its way millions of years ago. All actions, necessitated by thoughts of bigotry, ill will, and institutions which supported them in the name of culture tailored to a section, individual, were all corrected by reformers, revolutions of intelligentsia, and mass uprisings.

We read certain provisions guaranteed under constitution of India, such as dowry is an offence; untouchability is so and so offence; subject to judicial intervention.

Kamal Haasan’s Cheekati Rajyam 2015 Telugu: Sheer merit in terms of acting prowess!

Santhosh, ScoopLense.

Some situational dialogues for your understanding..(in  Telugu)


కమల్ భార్య భర్తని, “ఇప్పుడు టైం ఎంత అయ్యింది?”
మొబైల్ ఫోన్ చూసి చెప్పేలోపు అటు నుంచి ఇంకొ ప్రశ్న, ” వాచీ చూసి చెప్పొచ్చుగా?!”
కమల్ వాచీ ఎడమ  చేతిలో వుందన్న విషయాన్ని మర్చి మనలో చాలా మందిలాగే చేయటం ఆయన అర్థాంగికి నచ్చదు. భార్య ప్రేమతోనో మరే భావనతోనో అలా మాట్లాడటాన్ని భర్త బయట జీర్ణించుకోలేడు. అదొక చిన్న సంగతే కానీ మనస్తత్వ విశ్లేషణ చేసేవాళ్లకి ఆ సన్నివేశ సంభాషణ నచ్చుతుంది.


కమల్ భార్య భర్తని కోప్పడుతూనే, “వాడు నీ కొడుకేగా”

“అది నాకు డౌటే లేదు” ఇటునుంచి కౌంటర్ వెటకారం.


నైట్ లైఫ్ నడుపుతున్న ప్రకాశ్ రాజ్ క్లబ్ లో బాగా మత్తెక్కిన వ్యక్తి,
” సార్, ఆ సినిమా మనకి నచ్చలేదు డిస్ట్రిబ్యూటరుగా. అందుకే రిలీజ్ అడ్డుకున్నాను.
ఇప్పుడూ నువ్వు పెద్ద హీరోవే, ఒప్పుకున్నాం, నువ్వు పెద్ద హీరోవే. అయితే మాత్రం మెసేజ్ ఇవ్వడానికి నువ్వెవరు? నువ్వు చెప్తే నేను వినాలా? ఏవో కొన్ని ఫైట్లు, సాంగులు, డ్యాన్సులు చేసుకో, ఎంజాయ్ చెయ్య్.

A bit about Kamal’s roles …

Universal hero Kamal Haasan has been a mercurial man with the greatest sense for cinema as is evident from the diversity of characters he portrayed so far. He surpassed his own generation and is a stiff challenge for current generation artists even after hovering 60 plus, chief thanks to articulation in roles and specialization of each cinema without ever worrying about its box office records. His stints in various movies as comedian, stint master, classical dancer, freedom fighter with revenge, orthodox rookie, country labourer, to name a few, have been universal. Vishwaroopam has been rated as one of the wonderful movies ever watched by former home minister of India  Mr. L.K. Advani.

Now that the hero is on a mission to complete Vishwaroopam II, the current movie Cheekati Rajyam is apparently a lower bite of his professionalism though managed to get closer to his perfect past. Movie is about an officer of Narcotics Control Bureau involving in a covert operation to identify backstabber in the department and as he just manages to get clues, Prakash Raj kidnaps the boy and the rest of the operation is about how Kamal goes hand in hand with affection for his son and passion for his duty. His wife in the movie is as casual as one could see in neighbourhoods. Madhu Shalini looked as if she were partnering Kamal in lip lock tentatively, and Asha Sharath played the substance of a divorced wife who would maintain contact with ex-husband just for boy’s sake.

Abburi Ravi made conversations involving sensitive relationships look easy and Kamal himself did the dubbing part, while Ghibran’s rendering was good mostly. Of course, this is from Kamal Haasan! Before moving over from here, wish you a happy weekend as we’re in the first quarter of two days for refreshing souls!

And that was another Wednesday morning of November 1996 that got up to a good morning from sensuous cold wave in India. At the rearer part of west coast was Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad keenly awaiting the visitor in Hansie Cronje, the man who almost threw away the Wills World Cup only months ago by choosing to bowl first against Richie Richardson’s West Indies at National Stadium in Karachi on the morning of the third quarter final match. As the legend went across breadth and length of sub continent it was over confidence and higher degree of adrenaline that Hansie and his safari men would have to contend with, slightly more than what the might of West Indies’ pace and strategy would have challenged as South Africa successfully continued its losing streak just when things mattered in a multinational tournament. That was 1996 and it’s a surprise that world’s beatable team crumbles even today as it did against New Zealand’s Grant Elliot at Eden Park in Auckland six months ago. And what a coincidence!

Back to where we began. India started off its innings as if batsmen were still juggling around to find strong coffee. Slightly after an hour, the six feet and a bit larger figure named Vangivarapu Venkata Sai Laxman, who got himself imbibed with all that matters – perseverance and potential – in Hyderabad Gymkhana grounds walked into bat against hefty names in Fanie de Villiers, Allan Donald, Brian McMillan, Lance Klusener, Pat Symcox, Nicky Boje, and the one and only Adams. The last name, of course, became familiar more for his spiralling ball throwing ability than the off break. The Indian side under Sachin Tendulkar introduced to the world of cricket the demeanour that would in half a decade become nemesis for Aussie juggernaut under Steve Waugh, the man whose introduction is simply a waste of time but in that a delightful distraction to the generations to come.

Rajasekhara Reddy Andhra Cricket Association – Visakhapatnam District Cricket Association International Cricket Stadium in the midst of hills and thick green cover along the Golden Quadrilateral National Highway near Madhurawada in Vizag makes it pitch perfect to host Australia or England in 2016-17. This is where Mahendra Singh Dhoni blasted 148 off 123 balls in April 2005 against Pakistan.

Cricket stadiums in Pune, Rajkot, Indore, Visakhapatnam, Ranchi, and Dharamsala have been declared eligible to host visiting teams in the longer version of the game. While Pune is the third venue in Maharashtra to get the iconic test status and Rajkot the second in Gujarat, other venues are the first of such kind in their respective states. India will host Bangladesh (one test), New Zealand (3 tests), England (5 tests), Australia (4 tests) starting August 2016 till February 2017. As England and Australia are heavy weight test nations which will demand best grounds with best tourist facilities, Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Mohali might get better of the new venues, and Hyderabad and Ahmedabad will most likely host England in December 2016. Pune should get ready if Delhi fails to obtain permission to host South Africa now and Ranchi will likely host New Zealand in 2016, while Vizag and Dharamshala might get surprise tourist – either accommodate one of Australia’s four test match venues or Bangladesh’s one off test match series. ICC standards for test match venues require, inter alia, best lighting facility and large umpires and lounge rooms, and as the test teams arrive at least two days prior to start of matches and likely to stay an additional day star hotel accommodation also assumes prominence.


Mandate Bihar 2015: Relevant to BJP in centre or Significant to caste and regional aspirations?

Santhosh, ScoopLense.

So, where did the equation go wrong with the BJP, to cast a shadow on its own with support from RSS and lambaste from intellectual society? What is the lesson sent out to BJP and how close is the party at the centre to view it as a reminder? As we see, regions of Seemanchal, Mithila, Magadh, and urban centres too seemed to have gone in favour of Nitish. ScoopLense congrats Nitish Kumar of JD(U) and Lalu Prasad Yadav of RJD for scripting themselves victory against heavy weight of Narendra Modi’s BJP. Let the package from centre pour in and wish pot of Bihar get fulfilment.

The collection of fanfare, euphoria, and enthusiasm amongst rural youth has made way for dissent on real grounds. The generic statements from the supporters of right wing, that a state’s assembly election results do not reflect on the BJP are in genuine need of moderation as the same support group would have gone wayward in celebrating Modi and highlighting BJP’s president Mr. Amit Shah had results been reversed, and Modi would have become even stronger than he was in 2014 with mass and class backing.

But then the numbers of Bihar results are rather puzzling in the sense of understanding their direct relevance to 18 months of rule of Narendra Modi at the centre, which received perhaps the worst possible drubbing at the hands of aam aadmi party in February this year in the very place it needed lion’s space, especially since capital city is administered by the north block in more ways than one.

So, do we assume that this is relevant to Modi’s cabinet or significant to future aspirations of caste and region? Either way, it’s against the massive odds that Nitish Kumar has won an election worthy of being seen as remarkable political gamble in a decade. As we remember, Dr. YSR of Andhra Pradesh similarly drew pact with KCR of TRS in the run up to 2004 general elections on a pitch of constituting second states reorganization commission for Telangana and provisional inclusion of Telangana in the common minimum program (CMP) of the UPA I under Dr. Manmohan Singh.

Now that the mandate is clear from the ground zero, BJP must forget these and instead concentrate on forth coming states elections, especially UP in 2017 and Karnataka in 2018 as BJP can safely forget about Andhra down south. The most startling fact, that many pundits have overlooked, has been the maturity level of people which is on the rise as is evident from Delhi after giving thumbs up in Maharashtra, and now from Bihar, though they preferred BJP at centre in all those regions. This can perhaps be better understood taking analogy from common man’s observation of following Cricket Australia’s (CA) tactic which employed two captains to shorter and longer versions of the game, Steve Waugh for ODIs and Mark Taylor for Test matches. Sounds right?

Preview Well, that’s how Jagarlamudi Radhakrishna, fondly called as Krish, thinks of making a movie. And yeah, before moving on to script and screen play, let’s see which all productions milked bucks in 2015 which has so far given successes for waiting doors of makers and lovers of Telugu movies. Recent success of Nani’s flick Bale Bale Magadivoy at box office has yet again marked dominance of simplicity of content and hype-free screen play over eulogized heroic acts and video gymnasts. Temper, Pataas, Gopala Gopala, Srimanthudu, and Rajugari Gadi bagged decent scores at box office while much hyped Baahubali didn’t cut ice with expectations having run so high. Rudramadevi and Bruce Lee are a disappointed lot and Chiranjeevi’s cameo didn’t sound too alluring to stamped audience as well. Against this back drop came Kanche, meaning fence, which revolves around racism of European and Indian back home while constantly drawing parallelism into think tanks of pre-Berlin era and pre-independent community plague in India.

Timing of announcement from the Prime Minister Narendra Modi about his government’s push to herald in a informational India hasn’t taken me by surprise. After all, it’s the duty of any elected government to provide its citizens with safe, reliable, affordable communication set up with authentic surveillance and optimal privacy at individual level. Not too long ago, Rajiv Gandhi euphoniously announced his government’s commitment to make India an information hub even as Doi Moi reforms in Vietnam were set in motion after considerable agreement was arrived on phasing out unplanned and unfinished economic burden. Sam Pitroda perhaps is the only available technocrat to have seen statements of Rajiv and Modi in the most authentic context possible. His recent wonder on whether Modi should be credited for initiating the digital revolution merits a decent debate on who and who of information and electronic revolutions India has time and again witnessed.

Before slating order of issues of debate, we must allow ourselves to ponder on what we want to visualize and perceive of a development orientation. Infrastructure and agriculture remain a nation’s priority while research, education and teaching pick themselves up the order of novelty and industries of core areas the third and the most demanding slot. Now, for all these vital sectors and prioritized indices to efficaciously push growth rate information technology appears a much suitable and affordable option. Information technology has a number of benefits beyond social media now and the then communication channel – operational cost is too low compared to any conventional source besides being faster in hassle free delivery with transparency. IT picked up momentum from nowhere as can be seen from success stories of Google and Yahoo! which have bolstered growth of service industry across globe in addition to augmenting electronic hard ware industry in the past decade. To declare IBM, Asus, Dell, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Qualcomm, Microsoft and a number of associates have economies better than third world nations clubbed together is little as even health, family care, and fashion opted for cutting edge and cost effective solutions.

Land line connections served millions of communication needs with certain constraints like infrastructure and land. Security of physical systems depended on available private and public personnel who are more certified in safeguarding mechanism and less on mitigation. News paper, Television, and Radio honoured information and entertainment (infotainment) requirements from author/ presenter’s perspectives alone. This was the basis till mid 1990s on which India launched itself into foray of information technology and internet answered many questions. Infosys steered itself to a commanding position when it entered NASDAQ and car driver of its founding chairman earned in excess of crore.
