Such a cold day!

Today was a cold and dull day. The sky was dark and clouded all day. It was of course not a great day to go outdoors. Anyway we ventured out. It would have been alright if it was just the cold climate, but when it started to rain with the wind blowing on our already frozen faces, I longed to snuggle inside a warm blanket! Now where were we going you may ask. Call us crazy but we were going to watch the movie 'Ratatouille'! Both of were almost drenched when we reached the cinema. The movie was very good. Great animation. I can't imagine how they manage to make such perfect backgrounds and characters.
When we got out of the hall after the movie, it was still raining. But it wasn't that cold. There were Christmas trees and lights all along the streets. Lots of shops were still open reminding that Christmas was approaching fast.

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

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…
