Recently I got to watch couple of non stereotype Tamil movies which had messages that is very much important for the society now but unfortunately they were not very successful at box office – Inji iduppazhagi and Pasanga 2.
We regularly hit upon atleast one friend or a relative who speaks about weight loss or looking slim. And when this topic starts at home or at workplace you suddenly can see every soul in the room giving the tips that they have read or tried irrespective of their size. Everyone of us just think to shed fat and look beautiful by following all short cuts that we read in internet or through friends. Doesn’t “You have become slim” gives more happiness than “Your salary is credited” ? If you say ‘Yes.’ or you say ‘No. I dont care about my weight’, this movie is for you. Everyone really does somewhere deep inside wants to be the slim and trim model that we regularly watch in television or hoardings. Have we ever thought that we should be fit rather being slim ? Do we think about doing exercise to burn the extra calories or fat sediments in our body? We don’t. We actually run behind easy tips to loose weight. And hence weight loss has become a business and we fall prey for it. Every third person today has become a nutritionist and recommends you a fitness diet or shake which can shrink you but not make you fit. Just remember that !!!
Inji iduppazhagi talks exactly about this and gives us the message that be happy how you look but be fit. If you are thinking about joining crash course for weight loss or drinking fat burning shakes then this movie should be immediately watched by you.
Being a father of a hyper active kid who is yet to join his school, the second movie I watched was a nightmare. After watching the movie, me and my wife had a long discussion if we will be like one of the parents in the movie running to get admission in top schools and have to face all the problems that the characters in the movie face. This is not a remake of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ for your information. This movie also doesn’t talk about special kids. It talks about today’s kids who are hyper active and smart. But are we parents really smarter to tame them? Are we really intelligent to bring the best out of them? How many of us say “Let he/she decide what they want to learn”? We want our kids to be experts in everything. They should sing, dance, play an instrument, be a cricketer/footballer, should swim and after all these should get good rank in class and also should be calm and behave maturely at the age of 5 as Mr.Swami’s son or Mrs.Shanthi’s daughter. We don’t allow them to live the life of their age. We force and confuse them according to our wishes and societies needs.
Pasanga 2 talks about all these. It also stress upon how parents and the schools should bring the best out of children. Also what kind of education would bring out the best in today’s kids. This movie is must watch for all the parents of this generation.
INJI IDUPPAZHAGI AND PASANGA 2 – My recommendation from the tamil movies of 2015.
