Santosh Subramaniam

Last evening in Chennai i noticed these very catchy hoardings " father - son" celebrities in various fields like Sundaram -Raju Sundaram , Chidambaram and his son Karthi , Illayaraja and his son Yuvanshankar . The hoarding just had a tag line which said " Ivargalaipol " meaning similar to .Later i realized that these were the teaser promos for a new movie Santosh Subramaniam which is about a father and son relationship . The movie in itself is a remake of the Telugu super hit " Bommarillu" but definitely scores in originality for the teaser promo thought !

10 movies to look forward to this summer

Now with the Oscars having come and gone , Hollywood is gearing up for the summer . Personally not a big favorite of the summer, pop-corn swallowing blockbusters , but here is a quick preview of the biggies . Its not the year of sequels , though Indy 4 and Dark Knight would be the most anticipated movies of the year.

Movie:Iron Man
May 2nd , 2008
Cast : Robert downey Jr, Jeff bridges,Terence Howard,Gwyneth Paltrow

Movie : Speed Racer
May 9th,2008
Waschowski Brothers are back !!Live-action take on anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida's series about a boy racer, his car,and his pet chimp. Defn will be visually stunning , plot wise after Matrix revolutions , not too sure

Movie : Indiana Jones and Kingdom of Crystal Skull
May 22nd
Yes Spielberg and Ford are back again and it promises to be a lot of fun . Will the millennial kids take to this , is the big question . But didn't star wars work after all these years ?

The Happening

June 13th
If you can forgive Manoj Night Shyamalan for " lady in the water " you would def want to check this out . Starring Mark Wahlberg , John Leguizamo this movie is a paranoid thriller about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity.

Kungfu Panda

Remember the panda that jumps around the screen before the movie starts asking you to switch off your mobiles, yeah that's part of the marketing gimmick from dream works to introduce the Panda . With Jack Black, Jackie Chan , Dustin Hoffman , Angelina Jolie providing voice overs this one is defn going to kick ass ! Do check out the site , its super duper cool !

The Incredible Hulk
Ang Lee's stylish, psychologically complex, Hulk movie is now history . Because Marvel is hoping you forget all about it and turn up for this entirely recast, lesser brains,reportedly more action-oriented sequel .Edward Norton takes over the Bruce Banner role, which is gonna be very cool !

Wall -E
June 27th

From Pixar and Disney comes this animated flick who plot outline is something like this
"Set in 2700, about a robot, WALLE (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth Class) who meets a search robot EVE and discover that WALLE is more than a trash collector. He has the key to the future of Earth! If that's not exciting , then what is ??

Dark Knight

Christian Bale reunites with director Christopher Nolan and takes Batman across the world in his quest to fight a growing criminal threat. With the late Heath Ledger playing The Joker (Heath Ledger) who unleashes a fresh reign of chaos across Gotham City, this movie promises to be the biggest hit of the year . The posters look so cool ! I defn want one

July 4th

Will Smith . Not a single flop since 2000 , so a sure fire block buster , though i think it will be another I am legend ! But there is Charlize Theron to look forward to .

Pineapple Express

Judd Apatow - the king of teen comedy (40-Year-Old Virgin , Knocked Up, Superbad) is out with a stoned comedy. Lazy stoner Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver (James Franco): to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. And then the chaos begins !
