When I first did “Pabo Bole”, I told myself that someday I would do a Thamizh version of the same. But I had always been a bit apprehensive about doing it because that song was my first attempt with another singer (technically second) and Ron, the singer, did more justice than what I had imagined […]
Since the time AR Murugadoss’s Ghajini (Thamizh) released, I have developed a certain kind of admiration for this director, which may be hard to describe or put in words. He continued to impress me with both the hindi version of Ghajini and 7am Arivu, although the latter wasn’t well received in the box office. Of […]
If I haven’t made myself clear about where I stand as far as God goes, then: a) it has been deliberate or b) you haven’t read all my posts here in this blog. Given where I stand on this, it is only natural that I had to react quickly and post something about it when […]
