"Lingaa"


A perfect time to relax, and an apt reason to enjoy watching THALAIVAA'S movie! One could find all the Indian-cinema 'masala', and a linear story form in "Lingaa". However, (you may say I am biased towards Rajni!) the story suits the hero's image and as always, I have and will continue to love Rajni. This movie was just another addition of a gold star onto the Rajni's album that I have maintained. But, on a serious note and a serious rating of the movie, I would give 4.0 on a scale of 5.0.

Loved this word in particular - "Parkaas".

I was just wondering how come I didn't see any updates on 'Lingaa', I am sure all Rajni fans enjoyed the movie.

I hope, however, the movie was not much of an unconventional type like that of Rajni's earlier Sivaji and Enthiran. But it did suit his image!

Tiger Slayer by Order (1901) (Linked Table of Contents)Tiger Slayer by Order (1901) by Charles Elphinstone Gouldsbury
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gouldsbury's attempt to recreate notes and stories recorded by Digby Davies is really up to the mark. The writer narrates almost all the incidents of Davies' encounter with several 'wild beasts/brutes' (as used by Davies), and Davies' position as a 'Tiger Slayer'. The book is quite engaging when one is reading from the perspective to understand how the British treated the colonized world (here, India and Africa), and their experiences with the natives allowed them to create an image of the natives for the Whites. The book also reveals, in someway, the natives' attitude towards their colonial masters - some very fawning, and some others imitating the dacoits. It is an interesting read to understand the India under the British Raj.
