Aadukalam for Anniversary

The first anniversary 7 years back was spent at mayajaal. The movie we could watch was " Devathaiyey Kandein" starring Danush and Sreedevi. We didn't have a choice.

So on the 7th anniversary we decided to watch a movie starring Danush.This time it was "Aadukalam."

How it all started....

The morning began with a few wishes from relatives,cousins and friends frantically wanting to know what we were going to do and what M gave me and I gave him.The calls and messages came ONLY to me because M seemed oblivious until breakfast when I  had to mention the difference between yesterday and today. GOD!

Me :I received a lot of condolences today....
M: Huh! for what   
Me: For having tied the knot
M: Oh! Today-a

And then we left to office....
11.30 am - normal
12.30 pm - normal
1.30pm - very normal
2.00pm - hungry so called M and Acha to leave for lunch
Driver left early since he had some work and so M and I drove back home

Me: Hey shall we go for a movie
M: A Danush starrer like the first year...moderate smile
Me:Anything ( am desperate when it comes to movies )
Me: There's Seeruthai . Heard its full of violence. Then there's Kaavalan..which has vijay in it err then there's Aadukalm....Atleast the gal looks cute ...
M: Ticket kedekuma? ( will we get tickets)
Me: hmm Let's see

Discussion ends

After lunch
I revive talks and refresh updates about the show timings and halls from the paper. We plan to leave to office and check if the tickets are available, book and then go.

So we were booked for the 7.15pm show.

The movie wasn't what I expected it to be. Both of us didn't like it. Clear? Now for some details.
Dhanush: Rural self 99.9% charming 00.1%
The new gal: Cute 100%  scope 0%
The story: of a  guru-sishyan relationship.
The backdrop : a village with a cockfight tournament forming the base

Ps. Had a great day....anything other than the ordinary is great na?

Aditi Devo Bava

When we have guests/relatives at home its normal work plus
  • Paying the extra bills - Acha's work
  • Organising their appoinments around the city -Acha's work
  • Have to plan the cooking /ordering for the day - Amma's work
  • Set up the rooms - Amma's work
  • Clean , clean and clean - Amma's work
So do I enjoy having guests/relatives...sure because amma does all the hard work and I end up
  • taking short breaks from work - The size depends on the workload and funload
  • visiting malls..old and new - the only chance I get to explore them
  • catching a movie or two - the planning happens before they land here. Am a total movie freak...and I love the intervals too
  • chit chatting,gossiping,solving world problem from the couch - My vocal chords never give up or in
  • visiting other relatives known and unknown - refreshments for the mind and tummy
  • shopping with and for them - love it
  • having extra servings of junk food - love it to the power infinity...
Strenuous? Absolutely :)

The year began with a string of  loved ones housing themselves with us. It was sure cozy and nice.

I was crying when they all left one after the other :(

Now am waiting for the next batch to arrive.....come fast folks we've got a whole new year to cuddle through ...

Ps. Well, strangely after all the work Amma had to do and is doing...she had tears in her eyes when each of them left....now that is something... I love you Amma ...you're an absolute Gem
