Alaipayuthey vs. Saathiya

This post is about spotting the difference between the original Alaipayuthey vs. Saathiya, using the song ‘Mangalyam’ as the case study. Thanks to Rakesh for showcasing both the clips.

Now after you watch both clips, notice the cinematography, direction, editing and acting:

It must be difficult reworking a masterpiece. Both deserve their respective credits. But if you choose to have a better viewing moving experience, do give Alaipayuthey a chance and do it the justice it deserves.

It’s perfect. Just what I was looking for, but better.

Life In Perpetual Beta

Life in Perpetual Beta is a documentary film about the ways in which technology has/is/will change the ways in which we think about ourselves as individuals and a society. It is exploring the cultural shift that technology creates as it enables people to live less planned and more passionate lives.

I found this topic quite intriguing. The concept of living in the moment and making changes as you discover a passion for something; and breaking the norm of a planned and goal oriented culture. I’d say that’s interesting. Curious to know how these different personalities would approach such a notion. Now to hope that spring arrives soon.
