Kadal ( Music Review ) – This Sea Is Salty And Sweet

Director : Mani Ratnam
Music : A R Rahman
Lyrics : Vairamuthu & Karky

Magic happens whenever A R Rahman joins hands with Mani Ratnam. I think there is more than harmony, understanding, freedom and all. They make music FOR the movie. Its story, its soul in mind. Rather than a defined prescription – one shava shava song, one drama song, one patriotic etc. And it shows. If the soundtrack has so much to tell about the movie, what will be there in the movie Mani Ratnam picturise… Let us go to the music for the time being :)

You've Got Mail - Great Cyber Friend Can Be Real :)

Directed by : Nora Ephron
Studio : Warner Bros.
Starring : Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan

Well, this is fairly an old movie. I mean, released in 1998 makes it a good 14 years old. To me, the movie is more clearer and close to life now! When I watched it during engineering, email was very new thing and the ‘expensive’ dial-up browsing was so rationed that having a chat friend or, even visiting a chatroom was a remote possibility. Later, once it becomes less expensive and I got more of it, I too had my share of cyber friends, so much that I got enough things to put in a story ;)
