ಏನಮ್ಮಿ ಏನಮ್ಮಿ – ಅಯೋಗ್ಯ (೨೦೧೯)   Leave a comment

one of the very few good kannada movie that i watched recently, infact it was recommended by a friend particularly because of the song .

Vijay as always has done full justice, palak on the other hand is a bit tad out of sorts, nevertheless the song is very refreshing !

ಹಾಡು: ಏನಮ್ಮಿ ಏನಮ್ಮಿ , ಸಂಗೀತ: ಅರ್ಜುನ್ ಜನ್ಯ , ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ : ಚೇತನ್ ಕುಮಾರ್ , ಗಾಯನ : ವಿಜಯ್ ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್ , ಪಲಕ್ಕ್ ಮುಚಲ್


ಏನಮ್ಮಿ ಏನಮ್ಮಿ
ಯಾರಮ್ಮಿ ನೀನಮ್ಮಿ
ಆಗೋಯ್ತು ನನ್ನ ಬಾಳು
ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಕಮ್ಮಿ

ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಕಮ್ಮಿ
ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಕಮ್ಮಿ

ಹೂ ಕಣ್ಲ ಹೂ ಕಣ್ಲ
ನಂಗು ಹಂಗೆ ಆಯ್ತು ಕಣ್ಲ
ಪ್ರೀತಿನೇ ಹಿಂಗೆ ಕಣ್ಲ
ಸುಮ್ನೆ ಒಂದು ಮುತ್ತು ಕೊಡ್ಲ

ಬೆಳದಿಂಗ್ಳು ನೀನೆನಮ್ಮಿ
ಲಾಲಿನ ಹಾಡ್ಲೇನಮ್ಮಿ,
ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮೀ ಹಂಗ್ ಕಾಣ್ತೀಯಮ್ಮಿ
ದ್ರಿಷ್ಟಿನ ತೆಗಿಲೇನಮ್ಮಿ

ಚನ್ನಪಟ್ನದ್ ಗೊಂಬೆಗೆ, ಜೀವವು ಬರಲು,
ನಿನ್ನಂಗೆ ಕಾಣ್ತದೆ ನೋಡಮ್ಮಿ , ನೀ.. ಮುದ್ದು ಕಮ್ಮಿ
ಚೆಲುವಾಂತ ಚೆನ್ನಿಗ ಭೂಪತಿರಾಯ ,
ನೀನೇನೆ ಸೊಬಗು ಹೂಂ ಕಣ್ಲಾ, ನೀ ರಾಜಾ ಕಣ್ಲಾ

ನಮ್ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಬೆಲ್ಲಕಮ್ಮಿ
ನಾವಿಬ್ರು ಯಾರಿಗ್ ಕಮ್ಮಿ

ನೀ ನಕ್ರೆ ಚಂದಾ ಕಂಡ್ಲಾ
ಈ ಜೀವ ನಿಂದೆ ಕಂಡ್ಲಾ

ಬೀರಪ್ಪನ್ ಗುಡಿ ಮುಂದೆ , ಹರಕೆಯ ಕಟ್ಟಿ
ನಿನ್ನನ್ನೇ ಬೇಡಿದೆ ,
ದಿಟ ಕಂಡ್ಲಾ , ನನ್ನಾಣೆ ಕಂಡ್ಲಾ
ಕಲ್ಲಿನ ಬಸವನು ಕಣ್ಣೊಡಿತಾನೆ
ನೀನಂದ್ರೆ ಜಾತರೆ
ಕೇಳಮ್ಮಿ, ವೈಯ್ಯಾರಮ್ಮಿ

ಕಾಲುಂಗರ ಹಾಕ್ಲೇನಮ್ಮಿ
ಹಣೆಬೊಟ್ಟು ಇಡ್ಲೇನಮ್ಮಿ
ಏನಂದ್ರು ಜಾಸ್ತಿ ಕಂಡ್ಲಾ
ನಿನ್ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಆಸ್ತಿ ಕಂಡ್ಲಾ

Form and Void of Rust Cohle   Leave a comment

What makes Matthew McConaughey unique is his consistency in getting drunk on characters obsessions. The movies like Dazed and Confused (1993), The Lincoln Lawyer (2011), Killer Joe (2011), Mud (2012) , Dallas Buyers Club (2013), Interstellar (2014) stand testimonial to that. He finds ownership and freedom to portray characters that live on the fringe, who all are a bit on the outskirts of civilization and another classic example which stands above all, is his role as ‘Rust Cohle’ in the television crime drama series – True Detective.

True Detective is an American television crime drama created and written by Nic Pizzolatto. Season 1 revolves around a story of occult murder and detectives Marty Hart and Rust Cohle, are assigned to solve it.

To prepare for the role of Rust Cohle (who psychologically struggles to deal with his past, obsessiveness in solving a murder) , McConaughey himself created a 450-page evolutionary analysis of the character which he named “Four Stages of Rustin Cohle”, he named it as

  • 1995 Cohle
  • Crash
  • 2002 Cohle
  • 2012 Cohle

and continued “I wanted to get in that dude’s head. The obsession, the island of a man—I’m always looking for a guy who monologues. It’s something really important as I feel I’m going into my better work


The coverse effect of his obsession is transformed into nihilism as stated below:
I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody” (Rust Cohle, “The Long Bright Dark”, True Detective)

Filled with pure compassion, Cohle survived from himself because he was acknowledging that he does not know what he does not know.

O Kadhal Kanmani – Parandhu sella vaa   Leave a comment

Everytime Mani Ranthnam directs a movie, I feel that he dedicates it to his wife ‘Suhasini’, even when he ponders over the idea of making a movie he must be like, ‘I think I’d like to dedicate this movie to my lovely wife’, that is because his movies reflect terrific sincere romance, the ones which glorify unblemished love. O Kadhal kanmani (OKK) is his latest directorial venture and I am glad that I chose this one as a starter and thanks to subtitles, the movie watching experience was one of the most memorable.

For me, the only thing which mattered was Nithya Menon’s – Tara, she was terrific! If I were to interview Mr.Rathnam I would definitely ask this: what are the basic parameters that you’d visualize to be present in your strongest character, how do you conjure those? What are your references ? Is your Wife an inspiration to it?

okkkTara is the reason behind OKK’s commercial success, she is as graceful as she can get, the chief reasons being, the effervescent ‘Parandhu Sella Vaa’ or when she talks to Aadi after lovemaking, or when she comforts Ganapathi, Bhavani with her eloquent singing (Malargal ketten) or when she takes a ‘first- squabble-selfie’ or when she introduces herself to Aadi. She’s as sweet as a cheery pie and it is these seemingly insignificant moments that shine the most.

I wouldn’t blabber much about the movie and its mechanics, but would certainly shed light on Rantham’s feminist oeuvre and its evolution over time, films like Mounaraagam, Geethanjali, Roja, Bombay Alaipayuthey, and Yuva stands testimonial to that and now with OKK the stance is ever evolving.
