Enga area uLLa varaadha!

Kollywood’s love-affair with the city continues. The previous expression was thru songs (Madras nalla Madras continuing into Madrasai suththi paarka poren and further into Chennai senthamizh marandhen unnaale) and landmarks (Chennaicentral ;-), LIC building and beach) and the current obsession is with localities (Pudupettai and this movie title). The only thing left with this infatuation is in the area of the Madras Ba(a)shai, which can be easily used for the titles, except that such movies may not get tax sops from the current government, since they will not meet the “Thamizh” test (examples would include “Puchchu”, “Kasmaalam” and “Jagaa” :-)).

Mandaiveli (R.A.Puram and “Vishalatchi Thoattam”) here you go :-)

    Offtopic: I’m wondering…if I were to name a film, say ‘Carrot’, would I be exempted from tax?

    As for this movie, I hope it is as “creative” as its title, and not just “different and new,” as the “artists” say. [Too many double quotes there]

    Where did this Madaras Bashai originate it is a pure corruption of Tamil and it sound horrible. Its the worst language in the world which makes no bloody sense it sound like a mad man or woman talking when they speak this. It is a shame that our capital city has such a language used by a small minority mind you.

    Good observation. Therefore they are not as creative as I thought.
