Indian Movies Thread V

Shivaji Ganesan was at one of his best performances in this movie. What I liked in this scene is the sheer arrogance that Karna portrays when he is unfazed at the departure of his charioteer. The song's (sung in the raspy voice of Seergazhi Govindarajan, English meaning is as follows :

Ullathil nalla ullam
Vallavan vaguthadhadaa, Karna
Varuvadhai edhirkolladaa.

The most beautiful amongst souls
Shall never fall to the fatal tell of time
Thus, say the greatest of men, Karna
Prepare for the fate that shall be thine.

Thaaikku nee magan illai
Thambikku annan illai
Oor pazhi etraayadaa
Naanum un pazhi kondenadaa

You aren't a son unto your own mother (referring to Kunti's desertion)
And not a brother to each of your sibling (the Pandavas)
Oh! How you bore the insinuations!
I too shall be your sinner by my cunning. (The ploys Krishna uses to bare Karna)

Mannavar paNi erkum
KaNNan paNi seyya
Unnadi paNivaanadaa
Manniththu arulvaayadaa, Karnaa

He who is served by the greatest kings
(That) Krishna, to serve you, is ready
By bowing to your magnanimity.
Karna, will you grace me with mercy?

Senjotru kadantheerka
Seraatha idam sairndhu
Vanjaththil viyinthayadaa, Karna
Vanjakan, Kannanadaa

To repay the hand that fed you
You pledged your loyalty to the vile Kauravaa
And fell in the trap of great deception, Karna.
(Though) the greatest knave is the son of Vasudeva.

The co-production with Yash Raj Films — one of the country's top movie studios — was voiced by popular Indian stars and features the song-and-dance numbers that are a trademark of the country's Hindi-language industry, commonly referred to as Bollywood.

In localization efforts elsewhere in Asia, Disney has made two co-productions in China — "The Magic Gourd" (2007) and "Trail of a Panda"(2009) — and is about to release a third, a Chinese version of its hit franchise film, "High School Musical." http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/arti...QD9ECFOSG0

The Train is available on hulu.com

Lot of Hindi movies are also available.
There are some excellent neo-noir films coming out in Tamil cinema, hard-boiled, non-superstar movies are making all the star movies a run for their money.

I am listing some of the best and enjoyable movies in the recent past in no particular order, I am aware of only tamil movies, so if someone can list hindi, malayalam, telugu and other language movies, it would be good.

Brilliant songs coming out of tamil composers i recent times, check the below ones.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNvBvUzST...re=related - Meyyana Inbam - Eesan - This sounds a little like Basshunter's Not without you. But the lyrics and the improvisation is definetly unique and thrilling.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXET9AVxK...re=related - Another good one from the same film. Folk gana, brilliantly done. The voice is unique and suits the song naturally, awesome.

‎22 June 1897- With English Subtitles - Classic Marathi Movie - 1979


Movie is about the early revolutionary freedom fighters, the Chapekar brothers. From the looks of it they seemed to have stuck to accuracy (including how the assassination was actually done), pretty rare to see such movies in India where history is depicted properly instead of unnecessary Bollywood songs and romance (like "The Rising" about Shri Mangal Pandey and 1857 or "The Legend of Bhagat Singh").
