Making of a Mega Serial

August 19, 2009 7 comments

This infinite abyss of vettiness has pushed me into watching Mega Serials. I already am a fan of many English Series but Tamil Mega Serials which air during Dinner Time caught my attention only in the recent times. Everytime i see an episode of these serials, i wonder how much effort the story writer or the director would have put for this particular show . And thus this blog post takes shape . Every serial now has a Ex Top Kollywood Actress in the lead role . This is one more thing i don’t understand ; All series have strong female leads while there is no importance given to Men . Men in tamil series are usually old and drunkard father, useless husband, arrogant brother, cunning brother-in-law,  comedian sidekick etc. no strong roles given . And they call us MCP . Duh. Alright Alright now moving to our post . It is a simulation of what possibly happens in a shooting spot of a Nedumthodar .

[Heroine arrives in Innova half hour late, while the rest of the crew is drinking tea and not to mention the story writer is waiting for inspiration to strike]

Heroine: Hi director , innikku shot enna ?

Dir: Onnum illa madam. Unga thangachi unga sothula pangu kettu sanda podranga .

Heroine: Atha thaane pona vaaram eduthom .

Dir : Athu unga modhal thangachi Vimala , Ippo sanda podrathu unga rendavathu thangachi Kamala .

Heroine: Oh . Ok Sir . Seekaram shooting mudichidalam , enakku pala appointments irukku .

Dir: Dei Madam kku touch up pannunga da . Dialogue oru thadava padichu kaatidunga .

Asst . Dir : Madam inthaanga unga dialogue .

Heroine : ‘Ippadi aniyaayam panriye di paavi

Sir oru half hour time kudunga , dialogue memorize pannanum .

Sir , namma episode half hour la . En scene poga innikku vera yaar scenellam irukku ?

Dir : Unodathu mattum thaan ma .Half hour runtime a irunthaalum , advertisement llam poga 15 mins thaane footage time .

Heroine : Seri , 15 mins intha shotukku adhigam thaane .

Dir : Cha Cha . Neenga kovama unga dialogue solreenga . Unga face close up onnu podrom . Apram oru flip horizontal . Konjam Camera va shake panrom . Minnal effect podrom . Kadal la alaiyellam nikkudhu , Paravayellam parakkama pause aaguthu , roadla vandiyellam odama kedakkuthu , indha footage llam podrom . Apparam unga thangachi pesum bothu thirumbavum ithe sequence follow panrom . Aana namma inga oru twist vekkarom . Ellam reverse la oduthu !

Ithu mattumillame background sound . ‘Ho ohh , oh hoooo , ohoohohoh‘ . ‘ Jum ja Jum ja Jum ja jumja jum ja ‘ . ‘ Papapapaaaa, papapaaaa ‘ . Aprom unga perla oru rap . ‘ Here come arasi , she’s the man ‘ ‘ Yo people ‘ . Intha maarilam bg la asatharom .

Opening song oru 2.30 + shot oru 10.00 + special effects 2.30 . Avlo thaan episode over .

Heroine : Romba nallathu director .

Dir: Madam, take porathukku munnadi innoru matter . Innikku namma serial 1200 vathu episode . So openingla oru cake vetra scene vechirukkom . Unga 2 thangachinga , auto otrare andha kozhundhanaar , apram namma kudikaara gopi , appa sir , villan thambi ellarum serndhu cake vetramaari . Apparama sandaikku poidlam .

Heroine : Cake vetna porumla ? Cake Sappadra maarinna en dietitian a thaan call panni kekkanum .

Dir: Vetna podhum ma . Vetnale podum .

Dei, Ungala ellam modhalla vetnum da . Velinaatlellam evlo yosichu , plan panni , season 1 season 2 , season finale, Fall Break nnu release pannittu irukkan . Neenga ennanna setukku vandhu than kadhaye yosikkareenga . ‘Dr. Who‘ llam 1963 la irunthu oduthu , ippo varaikkum 750 episode thaan vandhirukku . Aana namma Kolangal , Arasi llam ippove 700 touch panni stronga poittu irukku . Villana pathu ‘ Vandhutan paaru sandalan , Kattaila poravan , Abhi seendalanna ivanukku thookame varathu’ nnu solra thaaimaargal irukkara varaikkum indha serialkkelam mudive kedayathu’ .


Kolling Time

July 13, 2009 12 comments

Blog, fish tank maari . Food podaama iruntha meenellam sethu poidum . Idhukkagave appappo oru post pottu blog a uyiroda vechirukka vendiyirukku . It’s been ages since i blogged. Coz i didnt get any damn topic to talk about. Suddenly oru thought. Kaila vennaya vechittu neikku alairomennu . So indru naam alasappogum topic ‘Fighting Boredom’ . Or as i say Kolling the time .

Few students from our class have taken the MS route and are waiting to go to the US soon.  Some more guys have already joined jobs mostly in B’lore and Chennai . College la irukkara varaikkum oru message kooda anuppadha Dogellam ‘ Hi , this is So-n-So , I am leaving to B’Lore for work . This is my new number’ nu kaduppadikarthukkaagave oru message anupparaanunga. Adha vidunga. This leaves us with the fair amount of people who are waiting for work to start . The author actually falls/lies/vizhunthu-kedakkarar in this category . This post is aimed at that select population of people .

Namma Vadivel sonna maari Chumma irukkarathu ulagathulaye romba kashtamaana vishayam . But once you face it and live with it you can master it . So here are my 10 steps to Murder Boredom.

10. Set Top Box: If you don’t have any Direct-To-Home connections please get one . Beleive me you cant watch Kolangal and Arase daily . Appadiye Discovery channel oru ‘Future Weapons’ , AXN la oru ‘So you think you can dance’ ippadi paathomna arivum valarum , time pass aana maariyum irukkum .

9. Movie Download: If you are not a big time movie watcher better try to become one . Movies are a big timepass and ya they give you something to ‘Peter’ about . ‘Dei , i saw that Wrestler movie that day. Mickey Rourke Acting chance illa la’ – Meaning ‘ I downloaded and saw the movie Wrestler , What about you ‘ .

8. Blog: This is a bit too much , but you can actually blog about some random nonsense and pester your friends to read it . Shoo Shoo shut up guys i dont write nonsense . Hmmm if you are devoid of topics, take the evergreen route ‘College Life’ is there and then ‘The last movie i saw’ is there and ya the latest topic ‘R.I.P. MJ 😦 ‘ is there . So make yourselves comfortable and write something .

7.Useless Mail: You can actually join some no-good yahoo group which sends so called ‘funny-pics’ to your mailbox . Will serve as a morning warmer . Uh put a filter for the words ‘Cute , Cats , Dogs’ etc coz most of the time you’ll be looking at some chinese baby photos with some newborn kittens . Annoying at many times.

6.Kootu Sadhi: Try to meet up with ‘Like’ friends who are also vetti . Vetti+Vetti= Great Freaking Timepass . You can talk about absolutely anything from Obama to Vettaikaaran to Megan Fox. Killing time one topic at a time 😀

5.Times of India: Please subscribe to TOI or DC . Don’t buy hindu for god’s sakes . Does Hindu have crucial info like which-actor-is-going-out-with-whom and all that stuff . No . So get one of these two papers and you already would have killed half your time.

4.Games: If you are a fan of computer games then well and good you wouldn’t have come to my blog on the first place if not i have an idea . If you have successfully accomplished Step 6: Kootu Sadhi then life becomes easier. Get a pack of cards , one coke 2 liter bottle and some snacks . Sorgam . My personal advice is to get a carrom board . Imba entertainment .

3. Sleep: Thookatha vida oru sirandha timepass enna irukka mudiyum . Veetla AC iruntha pottittu nimmadhiya thoongunga . Sleeping will increase our working capability aan . Some idiots have told . So sleep well .

2 .Twitter: Twitter sema fun . If your friends are giving useless boring status updates which you dont understand most of the time , dont worry ; follow some famous people at twitter . Take me for example , i follow @KimKardashian , @aplusk(Ashton Kutcher) etc . Its great to see what these guys update . I mean ‘ I am feeling better today’ , ‘Off to airport’ and all that crap . So you can console yourself that more vettier people are there in the planet .

1. Facebook: People who dont have a FB account close this tab right now . FB is the big daddy of all things which eat time . You can

  • Use brilliant , AI mastered applications like ‘ What color are you’ , ‘When will you die’ , ‘ What element are you’ . Beats the living hell out of you .
  • Look at your friends  giving mind boggling updates such as ‘ I shouldn’t have done that . I regret it ‘ , ‘I will not be happy any more, but that doesn’t matter, there are many other things in this world’ and such random stupidity.
  • Take noob quizzes which even a 7 year old will ace and then publish it with a Happy Smiley as status .
  • Play great games like Mafia Wars and say ‘ I am looking for a Blue Ribbon , I am looking for 5 of Spades ‘ and whatever you like .

and so on .

So i just gave you a dash of what Step 8 looks like . Experience the others yourselves . Don’t thank me yet . Proud to be Vetti .

Leave. Soru. Boru.
