cinema payithiyam

One of the characteristics of a chennaite is this slight obsession about movies. Another one, able to talk in different dialects. Aathula naan ipdi pesuven, silaper kitta saatharanama pesuven, narya pernga aanda imma kanka ethu vidven, ah han.

If you meet another chennaivasi, you are assured of at least one common topic for conversation. :-) Of course, there are exceptions to every rule.

Cinema pathi pesa aaramicha pesi kittey irukalaam. blogum pannalam. naanum panirukken ingey

Madrasla vellila ponumna, athu usuala cinema thaan. collegukku cut adichu naanga ponathum anga thaan.

other things have taken priority nowadays and we don't get to see as many as we used to. But we still try to keep up. My last one, though was M.Kumaran... It is high time I caught up.

But I do keep up with the latest news from kodambakkam. Although, is it anywhere near kodambakkam now?

My favorite sites include tamilcinema.com, bb reviews, vikatan and kumudam before those sites started acting crazy, rediff.com.

seri seri, vetti pechu apparam vechukalaam.

Sorry, I just got carried away by your post about how we Chennaivasis break into different modes of speech depending on the person we meet. Naan saadaaranamaa chamaththu paiyan aaththule so "namma Madras baasai ellaam annan Cho, Chandrababu, Loose Mohan naale vanda inspiration thaan". Godspeed!
