Pondi might be a little boring. -CeG <Butcher>
So, life is meandering along. It’s like a river midstream. All I’m hoping is that it doesn’t go back on itself.
To add variety, I decided to watch a Telegu film. For context, let it be known that I’m an adroit linguist, fluent in nearly EIGHT languages including Chinese, French, Samskrit, Telegu, Tamil, Hindi and English. Infact, I got a 90 / 100 in my hindi board exam in tenth class (I got a 60 / 100 in the English exam that year but then that’s all ancient history).
Now, there are a lot of Telegu movies at home (courtesy of YP and Komar). I had lots of options and no idea where to start. I thought of watching Poruddu but then YP said it’s blah. The next thing that caught my eye was Yama-Donga which sounded Flashy. Plus, I almost understood what the title meant. Donga being thief (this I learned on the highway to Vizag when Aziz was stealing sugarcane from a field and we all were shouting Donga Donga) and Yama being a reference to a God. YP then said, “It’s better to watch BoRamIllu”.
For those of you who are wondering why a Delhi guy with a rather south-indian name would be watching a Telegu movie, let me remind you of the utter shortage of good cinema. The last decent movie I saw was Juno. Juno was good. After that I’ve seen a whole lot of blah, including one movie called Hitman, in which the lead actress was rather ugly and rather topless for a rather large portion of the film.
Now, the most fluent part of my Telegu is some of the insults that have known to be uttered during intense competitive DoTa / CS matches. Infact, there was once a very excellent debate on which is the best language for insulting people in whose outcome I forget. Anyway, I digress. On asking YP whether the movie does contain words that I’m familiar with, he replied, “The initial section does. But the director has <bleeped> it out”.
So, BoRamIllu, is about this guy Siddu (who is much unlike our batch’s Siddu). This guy is like rich and has everything except that he has to do whatever his Nanagaru says. He gets engaged to some lady (that scene is hilarious. Nanagaru cheppa for everything Siddu asks :D). He is despo, looking for love types. There is a song on this “We have got a Romeo, All we need now is a Juliet“. Then he finds this nice girl at a temple who does kommulu (or bommulu) which basically means hitting head twice. Then there is lot of comedy and fun for a while. He has to convince Nanagaru to let him marry that girl so he says let her stay at our house for 7 days. After 7 days there is one BIG, HUGE, LONG, BORING senti scene. In the end it’s all happily ever after with Nanagaru agreeing that he was stifling the poor Siddu and finally he went to the girl’s house to stay 7 days. The girl’s father hates this guy for some strange reason though.
The best bits of the movie:
- I liked the girl. Hasina. Nice. Well acted. Now who is she? What is her name etc?
- Satti … lol … excellent … haha at that
- “Senior Sir” … imba lol at that
- Kiss-mat sir
The following are the bits of the movie I did not understand:
- Is the guy with the moustache (the bossy character) Siddu’s father / grandfather / uncle or what? This guy is referred to as Nanagaru
- Who’s the guy from America they keep calling?
- Who’s the other guy (with the lady who is his wife)? Why are they there in the movie at all?
- Why wasn’t there a small clip of Siddu’s mother going and taking part in Indian Idol?
I’d recommend this movie to anyone. It’s nice.
To sum up this whole whatchmacallit
Ippudo, Eppudo, Appudo, arre sutta le chali.
(I did not catch the exact words of this)
the adroit linguist, *fluent* in nearly EIGHT languages can’t spell them including “Samskrit” and “Telegu”. (its Telugu, iv. and don’t give the BS that it is all proper noun). Why would you watch a movie that sounds like ‘bored-‘in-Loo’ ?
what a waste of time and blog space …
“pondi might be a little boring” to Butcher but looks like you are bored of it too.
hmm Its not Bo-ram-illu..its Bo-mma-rillu 😀 tat moustache guy is siddus father.. nanna==”paapa” garu==”ji” 😀
the guy they keep calling to america is siddus sister’s husband..
the guy with he is siddus brother(who compromised his life who blindly follows his father), other is siddus siter-the nakeup girl, satti=the fat guy blac guy is servant , the girl with whom hasini shares bedroom in siddus house..is sidus brothers wife…
Ayela, kya kar raha hai be !!
😦 Even I want to be vella enough to do extra-curricular activities like those ..
>> Ippudo, Eppudo, Appudo, arre sutta le chali.
I think he is saying, she ran away with his smoke ….
the actress is … “Genelia D’Souza”

arey gandu…atleast kuch tho bolta context ke baremein…. harami.
anyway, english movies eh ? i am not able to keep up here and you say you are out…the last movie i saw was charlie bartlette….nice and light movie it is.
plz dont ever watch a telugu film and blog about it again!!
Even I understood more about the movie then you.. 😛
And the girl’s name is hasini, I guess not Hasina.. and as ankit pointed out she is genelia.. Didnt knw you were so ignorant of telugu being a telugu(though grown up in Delhi.. 😛 ) Waise you could have asked somebody in IIIT for subtitles..
Ya i would be glad if some telugu guy explains me the meaning of
Apppudo,Ipudo,Eppuso kala ganna ne chali (some thing like this) the actual lines instead of sutta 😛 waise your version is kool enough..
Waise its one of the better Indian movie.. Luvd it and also wrote a post on it when I sae the movie..
As I was reading the post, I was getting all ready to bash up at the huge blunders you were making .. right from the basic spellings !
but luckily for u .. . others have already done most of the job.
seriously dude … dont review a telugu movie again ! 😛
anyway, the first line of hte song means: “Then, now, sometime, I dreamt (had a dream) dear”
‘ Apppudo,Ipudo,Eppuso kala ganna ne chali ‘ ….. ‘kala ganna’? why will anyone want to take a black sugarcane! 😛
btw post raaks 🙂
teri to … for all the folks who dont have an idea about iv’s background — here goes
His dad’s from AP. he doesnt know how to spell telugu .. let alone speak it.
btw, decent bit of understanding of it though 🙂
lol post… though many blunders 🙂 A recommendation: If u feel bored and decide to watch a telugu movie next time, watch POKIRI. It’s kick-ass stuff.
Sometime back I found myself hunting for Tamil movies and ended up watching a Satyajit Ray bengali thing. Hindi/English don’t cut it any more. Just got my hands on Nayakan, hunting for subtitles now. Ever tried bhojpuri movies? People tell me the humor can be fatal. Sample these:-
Hey IV.. awesoem psot, and awesom-er replies. 🙂 hm, so u actualyl got ht entire meaning without subtitles? :O Neways, try jalsa. Full of comedy.. and u will have great time 🙂
Good review !! i liked it. Although full of blunders .. provided me some fun on a moooooooooonday morning :p
Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.
Dude If you want to watch telugu movies, watch Balakishna movies such as Vijayendra Varma, palanati Brahmanaidu (I hope i spelled them right..)
I am sure you would have a lot of fun watching these movies…
