Movie Review: Stardust

After seeing such a disastrous movie as 'The Dark is Rising' my husband and I were quite sceptical about 'Stardust'. Hoping that it would be atleast worth our money and time we risked it. Well, the movie turned out to be ok. It has fantasy, romance, action and thrills. The hero is Tristan Thorne (Charlie Cox) who sets out in search of a star which has fallen from the sky. He aims to present it to his lady love so as to impress her and win her love. The journey takes him beyond the mystical wall which is actually the boundary separating his village from the magical land of Stormhold. There he finds the star; but it is not a piece of rock as he had expected, instead a beautiful woman (Claire Danes)What follows is an adventure where he finds himself in a position protecting the Star from a very powerful witch(Michelle Pfeiffer) and also the princes of the country. The movie as a whole was entertaining and the story was good (it is based on a novel by Neil Gaiman)

Moon goes super

Tonight was a big night what with the list of things happening to the moon. Blue moon, blood moon, super moon. Also it was the big night when people looked up from their smartphone to the skies just for a moment and took selfies with the 'superstar' of the night.

I was curious to know more about the event. So I opened the newspaper, which was an event in itself, and read about it. It seems the last time that these three events took place together was in 1866 March 31st.
And by the time it happens again, we will be in the netherworlds. The other facts I noted were these:

Blood moon- The moon takes on an orange tint due to earth's shadow during lunar eclipse.
Blue moon- The second full moon day in a month.
Super moon- The moon is closest to the earth.

At 6.30 we were gazing upwards with not a very clear idea of what was going to happen. But the moon did not appear. It seemed the moon was taking a long time to show its face. I thought lazily that there might be a hartal the …

Review of Malayalam Movie Nadodikkattu (1987)

Nadodikkattu is another one of my favourite Malayalam movie. This is indeed an all time classic comedy movie.

Movie: Nadodikkattu
Language: Malayalam
Genre: Comedy Written by: Srinivasan
Director: Sathyan Anthikadu
Cast: Mohanlal, Srinivasan, Shobana, Thilakan, Innocent
Sequels: Pattanapravesham, Akkare Akkare Akkare

Nadodikkattu is the story of Dasan and Vijayan, two simpletons who unknowingly (and knowingly) falls into one mess after another in their struggle to become something in their lives.

Vijayan: (Played by Srinivasan) He is a very funny guy and more idiotic than Dasan. Dasan takes advantage of him a lot- like making him cook, do household chores and constantly reminding him that he is not a g…
