My thoughts while watching the Dasavatharam audio release function
-Kamal, the man looked every bit an accomplished, successful actor. I still would’ve liked to see him clean shaven, looking like the Kamal I can drool over. The bushy beard was a slight turnoff. The way he spoke, he almost bit his way through the speech. Was the stalwart himself nervous?
-Jackie Chan is so cute! He was smiling through out when I’m sure he didn’t understand a jack of what was going on around him. He made it a point to clap every time someone said his name and smile wider! He asked Mallika to help him with the pronunciation of names! He’s gotta be kidding.
-He did something that must make all of us hang out heads in shame and die. He picked up the wrapper of the record that was presented to him and looked for a place to trash it. Kamal took it from him and threw it carelessly again.
-I was pleasantly surprised to see Shobana emcee the show. Thankfully, it wasn’t Vijay Adhiraj or Swarnamalya yet again. Shobana is naturally beautiful. Her flashing eye shadow reminded me of Manichitra thazhu again.
-Mamooty, sigh, I’m out of breath. There’s something about him that still arrests my attention. I can’t look away when he’s in my line of sight. They don’t make em like him anymore. Major drooling happened!
-Vijay really must be dressed better in public. At least do something something about the overtly oily face! If he’s trying to ape Rajni’s public image, its definitely not working.
-Hema malini, the dream girl was yet again stunning. She’s again one of those models that’s not in production anymore. Asin looked sweet. She scored big time when she spoke in her lilting accented Tamil.
-Mallika Sherawat, did no one warn you about your clothes? You wore something that was black net with opaque patches covering the strategic parts and you linked your arms through Mr. Chan’s arms. Your thighs, legs and arms were exposed. Is our moral police watching?
-Rajni’s absence seemed kinda conspicuous. He would’ve made the evening complete.
-It was weird to heard Hema malini addressing him as Kamal ji! Isn’t she a lot senior to him?
-Karunanidhi’s pointers about similarities between Kamal and Jackie Chan were damn funny! It almost sounded like he ran a full background check on him before coming to the show. What all we do in life!
All this apart, I’m still wondering how they zeroed down on Jackie Chan to be the guest of honor. I mean, apart from the fact that he’s the highest paid actor in Asia, were does he fit in? After all, we don’t function on logic do we 🙂
So the point of this whole thing, the music release. No one spoke much about it actually. The music review will follow in the next post.
