Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru

Very rarely does a murder mystery thriller hold the audience’s mind captive and after quite a long time Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru does exactly that. In an industry that’s rusted by commercial cop flicks that shows the lead shouting on top of his voice and giving Sherlock Holmes a run for their money with their investigation skills, debutante Karthik Naren has delivered a convincing flick in the form of Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru . Deepak (Rahman), a retired cop, opens about a case that made him redundant, to an aspiring IPS officer. In a series of flashbacks, he recalls the day when he received news on a suicide case which was followed by another case of a young girl missing.

Not to mention the assuaging feel the place provides and the comforting hospitality the owner couple cater, making this a place that makes it a go-to spot for all occasions with any kind of crowd. Location Gossip is located at Uthandi in ECR, just a few meters before the toll booth (a Rs. 50 saved). With well placed name-boards that are illuminated, the place is hard t

When Chennai Cried

The moment I decided my 100th post was nearing, I knew I had to write something about I love the most and it didn’t me take long to figure out what it was. Chennai is more than a hometown to me. Just like how I stood out as a proud Indian away from my country, inside it, I’ve been been a Tamilian and Chennaite. Ever since day one in the last 26 years, I’ve stayed 5 years away from the city and another five much further than that, and just like how they say you’d miss something when it’s not with you, I missed my city as much I missed my mother. In spite of having my uni mates living next to my university in London in a dorm, I decided to live in East Ham, an area in East London that’s got a huge Indian population. I still remember the days walking down the foreign streets wearing a ‘You can take me out of Chennai but not the Chennai inside me’. And when I got back for good, more than the content of seeing my family and loved ones, I felt complete, some what similar to Han Solo saying t
