Revathi–The Versatile Tamil Actress but …

These days with so many tamil movies being released the quality of the films is very much deteriorating. But at least the actors like Mohan, Revathi, Karthik, Raghuvaran, Kamal and Rajini were there in full vigor unde the stewardship of able producers like KB and Bharatiraja there was a good storyline.

Recently I had an opportunity to view of the films of Revathi. Not sure if it is coincidental but a continuous spurt of her films brings out a lot of thoughts for analysis:

  1. A love with a difference. Though she takes a little more time to overcome the suffered infatuation she did realize the true love of her spouse (Mouna Ragam)
  2. An earnest endeavor to bring back Kamal to full-track life from his suffering in solitude (Punnagai Mannan)
  3. A loving and responsible wife to bear and save the family life (Thotta Chinungi)
  4. The bold and the beautiful. Able to save her colleagues from the lecherous boss (Magalir Mattum)

Well. All Positive and let us be positive about the post and everything/everywhere else too. So what is the ‘but’ in the caption of the post? The but indicates my queries as below:

  1. Why does Revathi always succumb to such infatuations and then makes her way to the right destination? Why can not she think deeply into the longrun?
  2. Why did these good actor-actresses not active in the movie anymore leaving the reels to the crazy jokers?

I am glad to write about Revathi in the eve of birthday month of November where my blog normally airs the beautiful birthday song Nalam Vaazha. For a change and thanks to Revathi this song video is included now along with this post.

And this birthday song of ‘Lavanya Deepak’ has a new birthday baby to wish. My Vz Colleague (Sushmita Sundarrajan) is celebrating her birthday tomorrow, waving the green flag to the evergreen jubilant birthday month of November.

I'm not sure what you mean in your question, so I cannot answer. Revathi is my favourite actress though. You are missing "Marupadiyum" from your list, one of her best.
But I agree with you about your comments about modern cinema.
The problem is that the modern audience is dominated by one demographic - young men, and these young men want a star to idolize.

In the past days of KB, Bharathiraja, Mahendran, etc - the audience was more diverse. There were women, elderly, families, etc, going to the theatres in equal numbers.

But these days, the only way to make a sure-fire hit movie is to get an actor, make him a "hero" who gets a pretty girl, because this is what the young men audience wants to see.

Thanks for sharing your comments. The song from 'Marumadiyum' ('Nalam Vaazha') has not been overlooked. That song has been always glorified in my LavanyaDeepak network as official birthday song. :)

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
