Tom and Jerry Relationships

Well, I know the title can only  mean one thing. Cat and Mouse. One of my favorite cartoon shows ever. It is the only show where me and my brother who goes to sixth standard watch with equal enthusiasm. Cartoon network rerun the episodes n number of times and still I will watch it and laugh.
Okay,  now coming to the reason as to why this post has this title. Well, I have always thought Tom and Jerry share an amazing relationship. They prod each other and fight with each other like hell but when faced with a common threat, team up and do a great job. I had assumed this was an imaginary one.

In real life, one cannot argue\fight with a person all the time they are together but still manage to work together. There are emotions involved. After effects and thinking involved. I did not consider it a healthy relationship.
But my view has changed now. I can very well say Tom and Jerry is possible in real life. I am experiencing it. I argue with a person almost every time we talk. But still that person is the one I go to when I want to discuss things. Its because the arguments that is caused in the process actually enlightens me regarding the things I want to discuss and I understand things more that what I would have done if I had gone through the problem alone.
And now, I have realised it more than ever. Arguments are good and are mostly productive if we know when to stop arguing. Tom and Jerry relationships are fine until we know when to stop the fighting and start teaming up to face the threat.

My take on Thupakki

Its been long since I blogged and being sick and miserable in the beginning of the weekend is not just what I was pleased about. So I decided to brave my health and go to Thupakki, the recent release of Vijay.

Now, I am the kind of person who loves watching movies just for the pleasure of it. Logic takes second place in my list. But it doesn't mean I enjoy illogical movies. Yes, I can accept few slips in logic. And this is exactly why I loved Thupakki. Except for very few slips, the movie was completely engaging.

The pace of the movie was a kind of mixed bag. Few parts were really fast paced while some bore down on my patience with its slow pace. But overall, the story line was good an screenplay was great.

Vijay was a little different with his acting here. Come on, give him some credits. Yeah, he has had bad movies but an actor must be given some chance at redemption and Thupakki definitely counts as one of his best efforts at this.

So if anyone asks me if Thupakki is worth watching, I will definitely say 'Yes'.

And as my Facebook Status goes : 'Despite being bedridden and barely able to talk, I went to theatre to watch Thupakki and did not regret a moment of it!!! I'm not sure who deserves more praise, A R Murugadoss or Vijay...'
